THREE WAYS TO DECORATE USING AN ACCENT CHAIR
In majority of the luxury furniture showrooms, the term “Accent chairs” is the buzzword. Very often, people get confused between armchairs and accent chairs. But they are not one and the same. The basic rule is that all armchairs are accent chairs but it is not the other way round. Accent chairs are seating pieces that have something to do more than utility. They are eye-catchers that stand out from the rest in terms of colour, design or style. They are show stoppers lifting up the overall look and feel of the entire space. The most popular space of the accent chair is the living room. But the truth is that they can add magic when handled well. Let’s dig in, to understand accent chairs better in terms of decors.
POSITION IT WELL TO CREATE THE MAGIC:
The basic requirement for any furniture to stand out is its positioning. The same applies to accent chairs too. Some options that will work are as follows:
-At the foot of a bed, a nice seating area can be created using a bench-style accent chair. Storage bench seats are also made available by bedroom furniture stores.
-A secondary seating area can be created by adding two accent chairs around a coffee table and a table lamp.
-By adding up an ottoman or a pouffe along with an accent chair and a table, we can render a perfect reading or a work area in the nook of a bedroom.
-We can create a tranquil look by putting up an accent chair at a fireplace making it very comfy to curl up with a book.
-Use accent chairs as a lone piece of furniture in a hallway or in a wide empty passway or at your balcony to make the space visually appealing.
PURPOSE NEVER TO BE OVERLOOKED:
First, decide the purpose for which you are going to use the chair and accordingly design. In this way we can achieve an interior that not only values design but also utility:
Décor: If your aim is to add more design to your interiors then you can go ahead and buy the posh ones that revolutionize the entire look. Make sure that you do not miss out on details like the colour scheme etc of the rest of the pieces of the furniture. The trick that works well every time is to make the accent chair stand out from the rest. It has to provide a focal point by drawing out a different pattern, colour or style.
Comfort: If you are looking for comfort, use fabrics that can give you a comfy feel. There is a wide range available when it comes to fabrics. For e.g., Cotton blends, Polished cotton, Velvet, Leather, Brocade, Denim etc. Majority of designers’ preferred choice for accent chairs’ upholstery is natural fibres when it comes to attractiveness and comfort. You must choose a complimentary fabric texture to create unity. For instance, a leather sofa should be accompanied by a coloured velvet accent chair.
IT’S ALL ABOUT YOUR CREATIVITY:
Accent chairs should add contrast to spice up a boring space. An accent chair generally shouldn’t match the other furnishings in the room but at the same time create an overall unifying vision. If your leather sofa is of a solid colour then use accent chairs with bold prints. Try to break the monotone created. Play with colours and styles. Don’t be scared to mix and match patterns and prints. But one point to be noted is that the accent chair’s style should not be too divergent from the overall theme. Your choice must be complementary in nature creating a sense of balance.
