What’s an Accent Chair & Why does Everyone Want Them …
Quite simply and Accent Chair is a single seated chair which is typically more substantial in size and design. The fun part … express yourself – Accent chairs are used in many areas of the home to create décor interest- pizzas and the obvious, additional seating. That’s why they’ve are so popular – they add a new look, feel, extra seating, colour and fun to any room.
Here are some of the more popular style names, defined on Wikipedia.
Club and or Tub Chair: club chair – a fully upholstered chair having solid sides and a low back and an easy chair having a semicircular back and, with the wings or arms, forming a single upholstered piece.
Now the fun stuff: what’s your need/want?
Want to spruce up a bay window, an entrance, your bedroom, create a conversation area, a reading nook to cozy up to a good book, or just need more seating for your living room?
What’s your style?
Using the definitions you learned, is there a shape that you’re drawn to: modern, traditional, transitional, high or low back, which ‘feel’s most fitting to you?
What space do you have, do you want one, two or more chairs?
Think, a single, cozy – larger scaled Accent chair with an ottoman or pouf and create a reading or relaxing area for yourself.
Group a few Club/Tub or Slipper chairs with an accent table and you have a conversation area or add another one and create adaptable seating instead of a loveseat.
Your bedroom has a lovely area in front of the window; place a wingback chair, an accent table, a magazine rack and a comfy through – voila, your own little hide-away.
Don’t forget to be adventurous by incorporating colour, style, texture, patterns and accessories. Here are a few examples to inspire you …
