Finding the Best Accent Chair for Your Home

When shopping for contemporary statement chairs (aka occasional chairs) consider function, placement and aesthetic. The environment you want to craft should be your guiding principle for selecting stylish seating such as bedroom lounge or modern living room chairs.

Determine the Accent Chair's Function

Deciding the purpose of your accent chair will inform what chair structure to go with. If you want to curl up and lounge, an accent chair with an ottoman gives you a place to put up your feet. To fill a corner in your living room while maintaining the ability to see the TV or fireplace, think swivel chairs. Looking for a seat to entertain company? Consider an upholstered modern arm chair for maximum comfort.

Decide the Placement of Your Accent Chair

Where you plan to place your accent chair will determine what size and structure is best for your space. If your space is compact, club chairs and barrel chairs are a great option. On the other hand, lounge chairs and chaises are the perfect living room accent chair for filling a large space. Is the accent chair going in the corner? A chic corner chair upholstered in an on-trend fabric like boucle or velvet instantly transforms unused floor space into the hottest seat in the house. Finally, decide what room your accent seating will be placed in. Perhaps you want a modern living room chair that makes a statement or fills up the room. In that case, choose one that complements your existing pieces without blending in; think a sculptural mid-century modern accent chair for an old-school space or a shaggy sheepskin piece for a glam lounge. Or maybe you want an accent chair for your bedroom that invites you to wind-down after a long day. In that case, select a chair with a curved body or inviting upholstery such as velvet.

Hone in on Your Desired Aesthetic

Aesthetics are achieved through material, color and overall style, so take all three into account when selecting the best accent chair for your space. For an iconic modern feel, try an armless chair or low-profile seating. If you are going for a primarily urban vibe, consider a leather chair or black accent chair. To craft an effortlessly relaxing environment, try a boucle accent chair. Want to go bold? Incorporate unexpected colors with a green seating or a blue accent chair.

Styling Accent Chairs

Once you've picked out your new seat, it's time to accessorize. How you introduce your new chic chair to your home depends on your existing furniture assortment. Let your contemporary accent and arm chairs take center stage when paired with a muted sectional and a neutral accent rug. Perhaps you already have a statement sofa or stunning bed frame. In this case, choose a chair that blends in, such as a white accent chair. To complete the look of your contemporary accent chair, pair it with your favorite accent pillows or throw blankets so that every time you see your new seat you can't help but sit down.
