Accent Chairs Buying Guide

An accent chair is truly a decor accent in a room — an embellishment that provides a superfluous note of color and style. Though not customarily a component of the main seating group, an accent chair is handy for extra seating when you entertain.

Types of Accent Chairs

Types of Accent Chairs

Because an accent chair is a style piece, its shape, size, color, and design can take literally any form. Once you've established the main seating area, which might me a sofa and two chairs or a sectional, an accent chair can be a fun addition. Take a departure from the other pieces with texture and style. For example, if the main seating pieces are a solid color, pick a striped accent chair. If they are leather pieces, choose a printed-fabric accent chair.

Armchairs

The most straightforward type of accent chair is a traditional armchair, which may mimic the look of other seating pieces in your living room. It can be upholstered or all wood, metal, or plastic.

Armless Chairs

Another common type of accent chair is the armless or slipper chair. This chair design doesn't have as large a footprint as an armchair, but it, too, can be upholstered or constructed of any other material.

Sculptural Chairs

An eye-catching accent chair in a living room might be a sculptural piece not meant for long-term lounging. It may be a modern design constructed of resin or chrome, or it may be a traditional style with elegant carved details on the legs, back, or arms. The overall look of the chair is designed to stick out and grab your attention.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

An accent chair is a fun piece to pick out. You don't have to be as concerned with its comfort, because it's not intended for lounging. And you can turn up the style volume in the room with a bright or patterned chair. It can also be a budget-friendly item. Secondhand stores are rife with accent chairs that you can paint or re-cover in new fabric. If you're purchasing a new chair, look through the inventory of seconds or imports for these colorful gems. Here are some other things to consider.

Armchairs

These comfy chairs take up the most space, so consider the overall size of your room before you add an armchair that's primarily for looks. You can find slim versions, but even at smaller dimensions, these chairs tend to have a large presence. The arms, however, offer an opportunity for style. They might be exaggerated in size or shape, or they might be covered in a second fabric.

Armless Chairs

Handy and cute, armless chairs easily fit into snug corners and adjacent to other pieces of furniture, such as desks or console tables.

Sculptural Chairs

If you are adding a truly interesting accent chair to your space, consider how you'll highlight it. You don't want to shove an eye-catching piece into the corner unless it has a source of illumination, such as a floor lamp or wall sconce. Better yet, place an accent chair near the room's focal point, such as a fireplace or bay window, so it won't have to fight for a share of the spotlight.
