  • How to Choose an Accent Chair

    Accent Chair A chair can be so much more than a place to sit. The right chair can also add style, personality and color to any room. If you’d like to know how to choose an accent chair, here are the questions you should ask yourself:

    How will this accent chair be used?

    Do you want a cozy armchair you can sink into at the end of a long day, or are you looking for a chair that will add interest to an entryway but that you’ll rarely sit in? Determining how you’ll use your chair will help you narrow down size, material, durability and comfort.

    How big should the accent chair be?

    There’s nothing more annoying than picking out a chair that you love in the showroom only to find that it’s too big or too small for your space. Put tape or paper on the floor to get an idea of how the chair will occupy the space. Will it impede traffic flow in the room? Will it overpower your other furniture?

    Does the accent chair fit in with your decorating style?

    An overstuffed floral armchair will clash if the rest of your furniture is mid-century modern. Pick something that matches the rest of the room in terms of both color and overall look.

    You can find the perfect accent chair for any room at Sherwood Studios. Browse our selection of accent chairs, which come in a wide variety of styles and price points.

  • 2018 Fall Decorating Trends

    Fall Decorating Trends Even if your back to school days are long behind you, fall always feels like a time to refresh and reinvent. You may already be shopping for fall fashion trends, so why not give your home a new look as well? Whether or not you’re planning to put your house on the market anytime soon, fall is a great time to update your home décor.

    Here are some of our favorite fall decorating trends for 2018:

    Oversized florals

    Move over, delicate patterns—oversized florals are in for fall. Think dramatic prints and jewel tones for wallpaper, cushions and bedding. Keep the rest of the room simple to let the florals take center stage.

    Velvet

    A luxurious cooler-weather classic, velvet is one of the top trends this autumn. Use it to add lush texture to chairs and accent pillows. Pair with gold, another major fall trend, for maximum opulent effect.

    Plaid

    Not just for flannels anymore, plaid makes a seasonal statement when used in upholstery or on throw blankets.

    Dusty pinks

    Pair this of-the-moment shade with the new darker neutrals or with gray. Not into pink? Warm, autumnal shades of red and orange are also in right now.

    If you’re ready to update your interior décor this fall, take a look at the wide selection of furniture available at Sherwood Studios.
