How to Choose An Accent Chair That Will Elevate Your Living Room 

Nothing brings function, color, and style to a space better than ​an  accent chair​. Whether you choose a transitional, modern, or  traditional piece, your family and guests will benefit from the  comfort and coziness it brings. Accent chairs offer extra seating, a  pop of color, added texture, and dimension to a space.     Before making your accent chair purchase, you’ll need to determine  the style of your living room. The answer may not seem clear cut, 


but typically people will gravitate to a particular look. Also, consider how you will use your accent chair. Think about the area you want  to place the chair. If you want to snuggle up by a fire to drink your  morning coffee, you may want a more durable accent chair. Leather  chairs are always a great choice. If you decide to get a chair that will  rock, swivel or recline, you will need more room and space than a  standard chair.     Here are a few more tips to consider before choosing your accent  chair.     Add Texture  An easy way to add interest to a room with a neutral palette is with  a chic, standout armchair. Feel free to stick to the same color of  your other furniture, but use the chair to add an interesting texture.  If the rest of your room is leather, use cloth on the chair. Or if your  living room furniture is microfiber, choose a linen chair.    


Play with Patterns The best thing about accent chairs is that they are there to stand  out, so you can have fun with stripes or patterns. Don't worry about  mismatching. Just place it in the spotlight as the signature piece.     Mix and Match  Create a stylish, yet comfortable living room décor by placing a few  accent chairs in the mix. Sure, you can match the chairs, or you can  choose separate chairs that complement each other: select a high  back chair and a swivel chair in the same color family. 


It is equally important to choose the right place to c ​ hoose a table​ in the kitchen.     Go Elegant  The wingback chair is an elegant choice for any living room. It’s a  dapper piece of furniture with its signature high back and  contoured wings. It can go from sleek and modern to traditional  and utilitarian in an instant. 


Swivel into Style Swivel chairs can be used in more ways than just a workspace.  Choose a chair that swivels or a useful chair that pulls double duty  as an accent piece. It can even be pulled into the dining room for an  extra seat! 

Selecting an accent chair can really change up a living space. Look  through magazines and Pinterest so you can have an idea of what 


you may like. Remember, constructing the exact look isn’t nearly as important as capturing the style.
