7 Top Tips for Picking an Accent Chair

You've got the ideal sofa and the perfect wooden furniture in your living room. Your dining room has a table and chairs. You've decided on the décor and your room is nearly finished. But something is missing. You need an accent chair (or two.) A sofa and armchairs are essential, but accent chairs are equally as vital in setting the overall tone and personality of a room. You have the chance, with an accent chair, to assert your personality and make a visual statement.

But how do you choose an accent chair from the vast range available? Look at these top tips and get the ideal chair for your needs, whether you want your chair to take pride of place in your dining space, living room, bedroom or hallway.

1. Decide Where You Can Make a Great Impression

First impressions are everything, so choose an accent chair that really stands out for a hallway or living room. These rooms are often the first that a guest sees, so you have the chance to make a great style statement that will stay in their minds throughout their visit. Many modern chairs are designed to be dramatic and impactful. Look at bright coloured fabrics or bold shapes.

2. Set Up a Blank Canvas

Contemporary chairs are often minimalist in style. Choose a simple shape and a neutral colour to accessorise the chairs with cushions, throws, or other embellishments. You can then change the accessories as often as you like to suit the season or your mood.

3. Set Up a Reading Nook
An accent chair is ideal as your reading space. Choose a comfortable chair in a classic or traditional style for comfort as well as impact. Pick a chair you want to spend hours in.

4. Choose Furniture as Art

You may want to leave your walls blank and your décor simple. Choose a bold and stunning accent chair as your piece of art in the living room or dining room. You'll make a statement that will also be highly practical.

5. Take a Risk

Don't be afraid to play around with styles, colours and shapes. Accent chairs are meant to be fun. You can be as bold as you like with this furniture and flaunt your personality through your choice.

6. Size Matters

A statement chair in the bedroom, hallway or kitchen is likely to be a little smaller than an accent chair in the living room as you will need to be able to move easily around the room. If you have a large living room, go large with your accent chairs since they will otherwise be swamped in the space.

7. Think Versatility

Accent chairs in the living room could also double as extra dining chairs for when you have additional guests, so think about a style that would fit in both rooms. You could also use a living room accent chair in a guest room when someone comes to stay. In this case, make sure you choose something you can easily move.
