Accent chairs are the all–star utility infielders of decorating: They're key players in any room, can change positions easily and pinch–hit wherever needed. From statement silhouettes to slipper seats, here's the rundown on types of accent chairs and great ways to decorate with them. Accent chairs are available in many styles. Here’s a basic overview to help you find one that will complement your bedroom or living room furniture:
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.
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.
A Bergere arm chair is an enclosed upholstered French armchair with an upholstered back and armrests on upholstered frames. Fitted with a loose, tailored seat cushion the Bergere is designed for lounging in comfort with its deep and wide seat. The loose seat cushion is what keeps it from feeling overly formal. Bergere chairs may have flat,“raked” backs or have coved backs which sweep without a break in to the armrests.
