How to pick the perfect accent chair for your interiors

22nd September 2022

Accent chairs are a great addition to any living room design. They’re ideal for adding a subtle change of texture to your room, and can be a luxurious addition to any lounge. However, they do require a little bit of thought and attention to ensure that they work well in your space. There are a couple of questions worth considering if you want to do this – for example, what kind of material should you choose for your accent chair, and what colour will you choose for it?

These are both questions that require answering when choosing an accent chair, so here at Cover My Furniture, we’ve put together a small guide to help you make your decision on the kind of accent chair that would best suit your living-room.

Carefully consider your colours

The first question you need to ask yourself is do you want your accent chair to blend in with the rest of your living-room colour scheme, or do you want to contrast it against the rest of the room? If you’re inclined towards the latter, then don’t be afraid to think bold! For example. if your living room consists of a fairly muted colour scheme, then try throwing in a floral accent chair to bring a pop of colour to the room. You can complement this by adding some floral scatter cushions to your sofa to pull the whole room together.

Plus, if after a while you fancy a change, you can easily swap out the covers for something that better blends with the rest of the room, if you’re looking for something a bit more subtle and understated. An accent chair that blends perfectly in with your surrounding furnishings presents an elegant, sophisticated feature to your space, and adds a strikingly co-ordinated ambience.

Think about your materials

The material of your chair can also play a big role in the kind of atmosphere it brings to your room. By layering up the textures of your living-room, you can add depth to your living space (this is a well known trick that’s often used in the interior design industry). For example, consider putting a velvet chair beside a tweed sofa to create an isolated, yet luxurious spot.
