Accentuate Your Home With Accent Chairs

Accent chairs are very convenient items for decorating a home as they are way more than just an extra seat. They can make a statement about you and your home. You can easily spice up any room with some of these chairs. Here are some ideas:

Add texture instead of colour

An easy way to add interest to a room with a neutral palette is with a chic, standout armchair. Stick to the same hue - a white accent piece will complement the comfy ambiance in the living space. If you have a large window, make the most of the natural sunlight and place the chair in front to create a cozy reading spot.


Use barrel chair

With an embracing, fully curved back, this kind of chair chic, comfortable and makes a strong design statement. Its soft curves make it a natural for the bedroom, but its style quotient makes it living–room–worthy as well.


Wing chair for a sophisticated look

A high–backed armchair with sheltering "wings" at the top, this chair was originally designed to block cold drafts and cozy up by the fire. However a more streamlined, modern version of this classic silhouette is now available in the market. Wing chairs are great for adding height and a distinctive silhouette. Use a pair to balance the scale of a sectional or large sofa, or place one in a corner to create a reading nook.

Pump it up with pattern

The best thing about accent chairs is that they are so easy to stand alone, especially with stripes or patterns. 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.


Mix and match

Create stylish, yet comfortable dining room décor by placing spacious barrel seats at the heads of the table. These hand-woven armchairs pair beautifully with natural finishes like oak, and create a relaxed vibe that will make guests want to linger for longer.


Swivel in style

Swivel chairs can be used in more ways than just a workspace. Make this accent chair work triple-duty for when you need extra seating at the dining table and in the living room - it's a great space-saving technique particularly for a loft space. Pick a versatile colour so that it seamlessly matches any setting.

Remember that chairs can be very handy when it comes to decoration. You can decorate your home using chairs in different creative ways. And the most interesting part is that this will not cost you too much.
