Below are a few bits of advice on how to choose the right accent chair, as well as several trendy suggestions.

How to Pick an Accent Chair?

Asking yourself these simple yet useful questions would help you out:

How will you use the chair? One of the biggest considerations is determining what you want from your accent chair. Are you planning to curl up while reading a book, sit upright and get more back support, or you’re simply looking for a statement piece to give your room the wow factor?

What is your style? The next thing to consider is the style of your interior design. Your new accent chair should complement your style and not stand out too much. Take note if your style leans more towards art deco, modern, traditional, or some other design.

Which chair size do you need? Before you go on your shopping journey, make sure to properly measure out the room and decide where your chair will be placed. Make sure that there is enough space between the different furniture pieces so that the room doesn’t look cluttered.

Practical or Adventurous fabric? – Lastly, consider the type of fabric that will work best for you. Leather brings a dose of class and sophistication, while a velvet armchair makes your space look more elegant and luxurious. If you have small children or pets, it’s best to go for a chair with a washable cover, or at least a low-maintenance fabric that is easily cleaned.

A Minimalistic Armchair

If you’re going for a simple modern design, I suggest that you choose the stylish tulip chair. This work of art is designed by the Finnish-American designer Eero Saarinen. The famous architect and designer crafted this chair with the sole purpose of defeating his biggest enemy – clutter. He thought that table and chair legs were impractical and distasteful, so he created a simplified modern chair with a single pedestal leg. Even though it’s been around for more than half a century, the tulip chair is still a favourite among interior designers. If you want to get your own – check out the tulip armchairs for sale!

Eiffel Armchair

The Eiffel chair by designer Ray Eames is an iconic and chic chair that hasn’t lost its popularity since the late 40s when it was designed. It has wooden legs and a modern comfortable seating frame. This is a historic and versatile chair that combines a dynamic range of hues. It’s suitable for any room of the home, however, designers usually favour it as a dining room chair. The name comes from the signature “Eiffel Tower” wiring that ties the wooden legs together. This echoes the works of the French cultural icon. The Eiffel armchairs are great for adding some style and visual interest to a room.

Classic Upholstered Armchair

If your interior design gravitates more towards classic and traditional, it’s better to choose a comfy upholstered armchair online. This type of chair brings a dose of warmth to your living space and looks stunning next to a wooden coffee table and a practical floor lamp. The soft and durable material and the generous cushioning make this chair great for curling up in your lazy evenings next to a cup of coffee and a good book. Apart from the comfort it provides, the upholstered armchair makes your room look and feel more elegant and luxurious.
