The Missing Piece


We’ve dedicated the month of August to the almighty accent chair. Possessing the power to change the look of a room in an instant, it nabs our pick for most gifted piece of furniture. From adding extra seating to creating a more eclectic look, let us count the ways we love the accent chair.

1. Take a seat: Perhaps the most obvious reason of them all, the accent chair is an easy way to add extra seating if you’re tight on space and don’t have room for a larger piece of furniture.

2. Experiment with styles: Because it’s not a huge design commitment, you can have some fun with your accent chair. Choose a style that’s different from the rest of your furniture for a chic and eclectic look.

3. Keep it moving: Since most accent chairs are easy to move, you can switch it up from room to room. Use it as some eye candy in the bedroom, then move it to the living room when you’re ready to enjoy it in a new space.

4. Create color and pattern: If the rest of your furniture is neutral, an accent chair is the perfect way to incorporate a pop of color or eye-catching pattern into the mix.
