Consider the available space in your living room when decorating it with accent chairs. Chairs that are not in proportion with the room size can make the entire room look awkward and off balance. For example, an armless chair or a petite accent chair suits a living room with limited floor space. A chair without arms takes up less space than a chair with large, rolled arms. Likewise, accent chairs are designed to accommodate smaller spaces. An oversize chair-and-a-half fits well in a large living area and provides a cozy spot to snuggle.
The stylish occasional chair: Typically light and chic, this type of chair is a multi-functional piece of furniture that can be used throughout your home, including the living room, parlour or your home office. The generous wingchair: The large size makes it the perfect accompaniment to a sofa and great alternative to a love seat. Place it near the fireplace in your bedroom or living room or be creative and use a pair as the head chairs at either ends of your dining table. Note that since these chairs are heavy, they cannot be moved around too much.
If you want to try something a little daring and different, use your wingback chairs as end chairs at the head and foot of a dining table. There’s something undeniably thronelike about the stately shape of wingback chairs, and as dining chairs they give meals added gravitas. The wingback chair’s style and sexy curves can turn any room from drab to fab. Don’t be afraid to show this one off in a colourful hue!
A chair’s upholstery can add textural colour to a living room. Buttery leather upholsteries in rich brown or brick red add a warm elegance to a living room. White or shiny black leather sets a lively, modern tone. Fabric chairs upholstered in cozy chenille, corduroy or velvet add inviting texture to a space. Microfiber is an ideal upholstery choice for homes with kids and pets; it’s durable and easy to clean. Choosing a neutral upholstery — such as beige, brown, gray or off-white — allows you to punch up the colour with toss pillows and furniture throws. An upholstery fabric in a stripe, paisley, geometric print or other pattern can help to “turn up the decorating heat” in a living room.
