Contemporary Accent Chairs
Everyone loves a piece of furniture that can pull double duty — and armchairs and accent chairs do just that. They create additional seating in a room while simultaneously offering a point of visual interest. Modern accent chairs are fitting for every room of the home, from the living room to the bedroom. These solo seats can fulfill various needs. For example, a reading chair next to a floor lamp and magazine rack offers a place to curl up with a piece of literature, while a leather accent chair in a bedroom provides a place to sit down while putting on your shoes. A pair of modern living room chairs can be positioned to face a sofa, creating an ideal spot for conversation with friends and family. Whatever your need, a unique accent chair is likely to fit the bill with stylish practicality.
Types of Chairs
There are many different types of chairs from which to choose. A swivel accent chair is an excellent choice for a large room with multiple seating arrangements. Its capacity to rotate allows it to pivot from one seating arrangement to the other. A living room lounge chair, or an accent chair with ottoman, offers a place to rest and relax. This type of seat usually occupies a larger footprint. Before purchasing a chair with ottoman, measure and make sure you have the space for both. An upholstered armchair is a stately addition to any room. This type of chair can be used for everything from scholarly reading to curling up for family movie night.
Side chairs often have a compact footprint. These are well-suited to small living rooms or an entryway in need of space-savvy seating. It’s ideal to have a pair of matching side chairs in the home that can double as additional dining seats. When extra guests arrive, simply pull them up to the table. If you work from home, consider investing in an office side chair, which can provide a place for guests to sit during meetings – or it can give you a change of scenery from your desk chair.
