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.
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.
Think about how you’ll use your accent chair — and who will be using it. Are you looking for something comfortable in which to relax and read your Kindle, or do you prefer a unique statement piece? Accent chairs in recreation and living areas are likely to be used frequently, so durable, yet comfortable and stylish leather chairs could be a perfect fit. Chairs situated in hallways or bedrooms can be chosen more for their style, so a hand-crafted wood or antique chair might be a good choice. To use your accent chairs as extra seating in the dining room, select firm, sturdy chairs that are the correct height (usually with a seat 16 to 18 inches high).
The Bergere accent chair is typically used in pairs opposite a sofa or tucked into the corner of a bedroom with a matching ottoman. You can add an air of elegance to contemporary rooms by placing a Bergere chair or two. Their ability to fit in anywhere speaks to the timelessness of these accent chairs.
