How to choose an Accent Chair?

   What is an ACCENT CHAIR ??? 

Well, according to experts – Accent Chair is usually different style, not a part of suit of furniture and it is often upholstered in a different patterned fabric than the rest of the furniture in the room. Got that? It sounds fancy and a bit confusing right. 

I would say, Accent Chairs are seating pieces that have a role beyond function! They are meant to complement the decor, draw out a particular color, provide a focal point or add contrast to spice up a boring, monotone space . Whether you are looking to make a style statement, create a conversation space or add a relaxing reading nook in your home, accent chairs are perfect solution

Accent Chairs allow you to express your personal style and add charm to any room. They can bring new touches of color, texture and shape, and they are versatile enough to be used in your living room, bedroom, home office or other seating or living areas even bathroom!

So how to choose the right one?

Let’s answer couple of questions first.

  • How big is the space you have dedicated for your chair?
  • What is your style?
  • How will you use it?
  • What are your goals?

Size of the accent chair should be in proportion to the space so room doesn’t diminish it and vice-versa. Height of them should be in balance with other sitting pieces in the room.

What is the style of your home?? Do you prefer traditional, or a sleek or contemporary look? Are you looking for comfort or sophistication?

How will the accent chair be used? Where is it going to be placed? Nailing down the function of your accent chair can really help guide other decisions like style, fabric material, comfort level and overall durability.
