Accent chair – it’s purpose is in it’s name: ‘Accent’ – emphasize (a particular feature)
focus attention, draw attention to, play up
Accent chairs can be used to make a visual statement as well as rounding out the overall décor of any room, by providing extra seating or a cozy spot to curl up in with a good book.
Stylish accent chairs can come in unique shapes, such as rounded arms. Try playing with fun colours, textures or patterns on fabrics; also, a textured leather chair can make a real attention grabber. A chair that has chrome, brass, or even acrylic arms and legs can really make a bold statement as well.
Just keep in mind that, as ‘accent’ chairs, keeping them to a maximum of one or two in each space is the secret to ‘playing up’ an area without overwhelming it.
So you see, making an accent chair an integral part of your home’s décor can be fun and exciting when you GO BOLD!
