An accent chair can fill a dead zone in a corner of a room, provide some neat solutions to excess seating needs, or simply bring an inviting aura of relaxation into your home. Even the occasional chair in the corner of a room invites you to stop, sit down and think for a moment.
The great thing about accent chairs is that they can be used anywhere in your home, from your bathroom to your landing or bedroom, and you can easily swap them out and move them to a new location or room with ease. They are inherently designed to be moved.
I love mismatched chairs in a Living room, especially if you have enough space to place a couple of sofas and some chairs around a central coffee table. You can be adventurous with an accent chair in a low-risk way, using it to add a focal point to a room or a playful pop of color in an otherwise subdued space Palette.
I like that you can use an accent chair to indulge contrasting tastes and styles. An occasional chair can clash with the overall style of your home. If your home is modern, you can shake things up with a retro or antique side chair. Just make sure the styles speak to each other. If you are looking for something colorful and happy, anthropologie.com hits it out of the park with me its current selection of occasional chairs. The Marcello Velho Catwalk Petite Accent Chair or the In Bloom Chair enhance any home, while the Heatherfield Chair has a simple Californian style that harks back to a glamorous era.
I love rattan furniture or anything made out of rope, cane or bamboo. I am currently obsessed with the Jonas Armchair from Soho Home. This classic design reflects a 1950s masculine style with a woven rope seat for flexible comfort, a hand-carved solid oak frame joined with brass details and an olive green linen cushion for a chic retro finish.
It’s an incredibly comfortable design, low-rise and loose enough to relax, yet its classic design maintains a formal elegance.
For the finishing touch, make sure your occasional chair is next to a shelf or small side table if you can. It’s important to have a place to put your cup of coffee or Negroni while you’re lounging. Ideally, of course, it’s one that someone else made for you.
