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.
