Colorful accent chairs are making waves in decor, and it’s not hard to see why: They’re an easy way to update and invigorate your space. If you find yourself boxed into a too-neutral color palette but you’re not ready to make a huge change to the room, add an accent chair for color or focus. One or two new accent pieces can turn your color palette around instantly. With your new accent chair color in place, adding a few decorative accessories in the same color will give your space that elusive put-together look.
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.
The best thing about accent chairs is that they are so easy to stand alone, especially with stripes or patterns gone mad. Don’t worry about mismatching — just place it in the spotlight as the signature piece and flaunt your style. For a large room, place a wide lounge chair in a bare corner that needs attention. Create stylish, yet comfortable dining room décor by placing spacious barrel seats at the heads of the table. These hand-woven abaca armchairs pair beautifully with natural finishes like oak, and create a relaxed vibe that will make guests want to linger for longer.
Scale is one of the most important considerations when purchasing furniture. For any room, the size of the accent chair should be in proportion to the space so the room doesn’t diminish it, or vice versa. Make sure the height of the seat is in balance with other seating in the room. For tall guests, avoid chairs that are too low to the ground; for petite guests, avoid chairs with a deep seat length.
