Wing-back chairs are an enduring favorite for living rooms. They are designed with high backs, arm rests and winged sides, providing a formal touch. The generous size of a wingback makes it an ideal counterpart to a large sofa, since it can give the room a sense of balance in scale. It’s most commonly placed next to a fireplace. Protecting the inhabitant from drafts and the heat from a roaring fire was the original purpose of the chair’s side wings, and some things, like Canadian winters, never change.
In certain cases, depending on the size, scale and seat height, accent chairs can work as host chairs for your dining table, if you’re going for a more unique look. Step out of the box and use four chairs and a large ottoman, instead of the traditional sofa and chairs, to create a conversation area. Sometimes once a room is finished you realize that something is lacking in the personality or color department. Maybe it’s a quirky or fun little accent chair with distinctive details, a unique shape, or colorful fabric.
