A person’s favorite accent chairs can say a lot about them. Are you into library-esque chairs with stacks of magazines and books piled up beside it? Perhaps soft and comfy chairs with a basket of knitting is more your vibe–or a chair with low arms that allows you to strum your guitar while chilling out?
While accent chairs may play second fiddle to a grander sofa or couch (or bed), selecting the right accent chair for your room can help to bring harmony to your space. A loud patternful couch is balanced by a more subdued but textural chair. Turn up the heat in a room by pairing a spicy accent chair in an otherwise neutral room. Add an inherited or thrifted worn-in chair to a room for a vintage lived-in feel.
