Choosing the Right Accent Chair

Need extra seating in your favorite space? Our selection of accent chairs will solve your decorating dilemma. With a wide range of living room chairs and occasional chairs, you’ll find dozens of ideas to suit your needs. Read on to learn how to select the ideal accent chair for your home.

Know Your Style

Begin your chair search by determining your decorating style. Look at the common pieces in your room and decide if you want to carry on a theme throughout your space or mix and match for a more eclectic look. Adding a farmhouse style armchair into a mostly traditional room can give your space a very welcoming appeal while mid-century styles mesh easily with modern and contemporary décor.
When you’re shopping chair styles, also keep in mind the design of the chair and the space you have available to place it. Armless chairs and slipper chairs fit easily into tighter spots while club chairs and oversized chairs make a bigger statement. Accent chairs also give you the chance to try more unconventional looks – futuristic egg chairs and barrel chairs in unique shapes, colors, and patterns draw interest without taking over your entire décor.

Get Colorful

Accent chairs have the ability to be as subtle or vibrant as you like. A neutral beige, brown, off-white, or gray accent chair blends with most color schemes, while dramatic, dark colors like black, purple, red or blue accent chairs add a regal touch and visual intrigue. Or, make a statement with a vibrant pink, yellow, green, or orange accent chair. Don't limit yourself to solid shades – patterns range from traditional quatrefoils and florals to bold, geometric patterns and multicolor paisleys.

Navigate the Material World

When considering the upholstery for your new accent chair, think about how and where you're going to use it. For an everyday chair, select a more durable fabric, metal, or wood chair that can hold up to repeated use, children, or pets. For an occasional chair, consider faux leather, leather, plastic, or wicker to add a stylish touch to your space.

Place it Perfectly

Accent chairs don't have to be relegated to the living room. Consider a bedroom accent chair like a club chair or corner chair for putting on socks and shoes in the morning, or a dining room accent chair to soften the look of a traditional space.

No matter what style, color, or material you choose or where you place it, there's an accent chair for every space, style, and budget here at Hayneedle.
