Creating the ambiance you want in a room is important. Your new accent chair should make your room look more inviting — not cluttered. In a bedroom, an accent chair can provide the perfect sitting area. Placing a chair next to a window with a small table and lamp creates a cozy reading nook. Comfortable chairs that recline or pair with an ottoman are great for low-traffic areas. It’s also important to ensure traffic can navigate comfortably around whoever is seated.
Next is the style, which must not be too divergent from the style of the rest of the room. Pick the right style that compliments your other furniture. You’ll need to decide whether it should be a recliner which works well in a contemporary setting, wing chairs if you have classic style furniture or slipper chairs that can transform your home décor setting into something out of the Victorian era. Finally, you must pick the right kind of material with the right kind of texture. If your sofa is upholstered with leather, for instance, your accent chairs can be colour coordinated velvet, damask, cotton, or wool.
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.
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.
