Bedroom’s are often our place to retreat at the end of the day, and an accent chair or two in the room provide a quiet, private place to decompress. The problem of an awkward and empty corner can many times be solved by adding an accent chair, table and lamp, or floor lamp, to create some cozy. If there’s room, a chair in the entry adds a welcoming touch, as well as providing a space for guests to take their shoes off and on. Use a fun little chair instead of a piano bench to add some style and personality to your music room or piano space. Use one in place of a desk chair, as a spot for clients to sit when conducting business, or for family to sit and chat in your home office.
Define your style and space — Accent chairs come in a variety of styles. First, consider whether you prefer a more traditional, or a sleek, contemporary look. The style of your home and how you want to use the space in which you’ll be incorporating your accent chair are important. To add a bit of sophistication to the room and showcase your unique personality. If you prefer comfort, an oversize accent chair provides a cozy place to curl up at the end of the day to read a book or watch television. In terms of colour, it’s often wise to choose something that could work in more than one room so that you can switch things up later if you desire.
Incorporating accent chairs into your room arrangement can provide functional and stylish decor. Centering a small table between two accent chairs in a living room nook provides a decorative conversation area. Position a sofa in front of a fireplace flanked by two accent chairs facing each other to form a decorative “square” furniture arrangement. Or center two accent chairs and a table across from a sofa in a room without a fireplace.
Scale is one of the most important considerations when purchasing furniture. For any room, the size of the accent chair should be in proportion to the space so the room doesn’t diminish it, or vice versa. Make sure the height of the seat is in balance with other seating in the room. For tall guests, avoid chairs that are too low to the ground; for petite guests, avoid chairs with a deep seat length.
