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:
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.
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.
Slipper chairs are one of the most versatile pieces of furniture and can even be used to separate the dining and living areas in a single room. If you’re wondering where the name “slipper chair” comes from, you might be surprised to learn that the name originated from the Victoria era chair that was easy for Victorian ladies to get in and out of when slipping on their shoes.
