Accent Chairs

Good interior designers know that not all furniture in a room needs to match. In fact, a room is vastly more interesting when you sneak in a stand-out accent piece that is unique. When that item is a chair there are numerous ways to vary the look without looking inconsistent with the other furnishings in the room. Think about a different arm or leg style. Consider a real accent by using an occasional chair with a carved wood frame, a swivel chair or one with a dressmaker skirt.

If you study a room that you find interesting, the furniture in it is generally an assortment of pieces, accessories and decorative objects that feel and look “friendly” together. While there are some matching pieces, there will also be layers of subtle differences. Good design always includes ways to spice up the room with punctuation of color, pattern, style and fabric type. That’s why our accent chairs are available in a variety of styles and different upholstery options.  Create a clean contemporary look or a relaxed urban cottage. From shabby chic to snappy urban hip to Victorian, our chairs span a wide variety of styles. Featured are fully upholstered designs to chairs with wood or metal frames and mid-century to classic modern chrome frames. Take a look at our detailed tailoring, from button tufting, nail heads and thin welts that add sophistication and act as additional room decor.

Occasional Chairs for Any Space

We offer a wide range of sizes that will fit into any arrangement and in any size room. Sometimes an accent chair catches your eye that is enticing, but far too large for your space. If you live in a more compact space, take special note of our petite models. An accent chair is a perfect piece to place near a fireplace or by a window. If you are choosing between an outdoor view and your TV as a focal point or between your fireplace and the TV, a swivel chair is a perfect selection for ultimate flexibility.

Fabric, leather and Slipcovered Decorative Chairs 

Not only can you vary style, but you can create counterpoint in your ensemble by choosing an accent fabric. We have an exceptional range of textiles available, and we offer free samples so that you can make sure your combination of colors is perfect and flows nicely with the rest of your home decor. Choose from a selection of cotton twills and canvas, rayon/ polyester cobble cloth, polyester/acrylic/nylon cut velvet, linen/cotton blends for a relaxed look. Some of the coverings on our slipcovered accent chairs are conveniently machine washable. All our Tier 3 fabrics offer a variety of unique fabric types including Crypton® stain resistant fabrics, which are machine washable. An accent chair does not have to be one that you are afraid to use and can be covered in either a contrasting or matching fabric to the main pieces in your room. We offer a broad assortment of top grain leather accent chairs that is one of the easiest upholsteries to maintain. Perfect for anyone with pets or kids, spills can be immediately wiped with a clean, dry cloth.

Quality Made Accent Chairs 

Be assured that our chairs are made with the same care as all of our furniture pieces. We use solid hardwood frames and a sinuous spring system for support under our cushions. Standard seat cushions are composed of a core of 1.9 density DR foam with a Dacron wrap. Many of our occasional chairs are available with an upgrade to a plush down seat cushion. A polyurethane core is surrounded with a duvet wrap containing a plush combination of goose down, feathers, and poly ticking. Natural down will create a crested look and does require occasional fluffing up to maintain shape, but people love the luxurious feel of down.

How to Pair an Accent Chair 

Remember that it would be far more interesting, for example, to pair a distinctive traditional chair with a basic contemporary living room sofa. Choose a leather library accent chair to sit nearby a bench style sofa. Conversely, consider a stunning mid-century modern chair to accent a room with a simple sofa or loveseat. An accent chair also pairs great with an apartment size sofa with reversible chaise to provide extra seating. Often designers like to use different pieces opposite a sofa or in conjunction with two matching sofas to form a conversation area. Another way to use two chairs as home accents would be in front of a window with a table between. The coziest setting is in front of an inviting fireplace, chairs with matching ottomans and a tiny side table for a glass of wine or cup of hot tea.
