Rather than perceive them as just a couple more extra seating, these single chairs must be appreciated as additional home decor pieces that enhance any furniture they are placed around, and any space (or zone) they are set in. So, what ways can you use accent chairs and how do you know the best style chair to choose? And how do you use them to complement a space? For instance, should they be placed directly in front of your sofa or to its left or right side or should you use a bench-style accent chair against the long hallway wall? Additionally, how do you know when it’s best to use just one accent chair, or if it is better to use them as a pair?
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!
The colour, texture and pattern of your bedroom and living room furniture impact your décor in a big way. So choose the upholstery and finish of your accent chairs carefully. Here are some tips to help. Go bold with pattern and colour, but make sure the background is neutral to avoid a chaotic and messy look. For a classic look, stay neutral and accessorize with colourful art, a rug, throws or show pieces instead. Experiment with shape. Make it that piece of art that will stand out anywhere in the room.
The best thing about accent chairs is that they are so easy to stand alone, especially with stripes or patterns gone mad. Don’t worry about mismatching — just place it in the spotlight as the signature piece and flaunt your style. For a large room, place a wide lounge chair in a bare corner that needs attention. Create stylish, yet comfortable dining room décor by placing spacious barrel seats at the heads of the table. These hand-woven abaca armchairs pair beautifully with natural finishes like oak, and create a relaxed vibe that will make guests want to linger for longer.
