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).
Choosing furniture can be daunting but the key things to look out for is style and type of materials the chair is made of. Coordinating these two will let you use chairs from different sets without having to buy all in one set. Difference in style and texture can be good especially if you are after an eclectic look. Just make sure the accent chair accents the colour scheme of the room in which you are placing it.
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.
The good thing is that there is no hard and fast rule about how furniture accents should be chosen and placed so its good to know that these stylish single chairs, with or without arms, can be used just about most areas of the home. Make up a cosy nook in a corner of the room, Use as a single chair that serves as a great companion for the sofa, Set it up as a private seating area with a small coffee table and reading lamp, Looks nice when set in place as “duo seating” (with a little round top table) at the foot of your bed.
