Accent chairs, with their unique ability to add a splash of style and comfort to any room, have become a staple in home décor. Unlike their more utilitarian counterparts, these chairs aren’t just a place to sit. They can brighten up any corner of your home, make a great first impression or provide a space for moments of retreat throughout the day. Let’s explore how to style accent chairs in various areas of your home, adding both comfort and charm to your everyday spaces.


Living Room Chair Styling Ideas

1-seater armchairs are a vital part of any living room or lounge. Create a cosy reading nook in a corner or next to a fireplace or pair two stylish armchairs next to each other, for a more conversational setup. Complement with a side table hosting your favourite books and a touch of greenery, creating the ideal spot for relaxing with a hot cuppa. To maximize the impact of your armchair styling, consider a chair that contrasts with your sofa in either colour or style, making it stand out as a statement piece.


Bedroom Chair Styling Ideas

Transform your bedroom from merely a place to sleep, to a sanctuary for relaxation with the simple addition of an occasional chair. Choose a spot by the window for a serene reading area with plenty of natural light or create a dressing area where you can sit comfortably while getting ready. Opt for a chair with soft, inviting fabrics and gentle curves to add to the tranquillity of your bedroom oasis. Choose a unique, patterned chair to add your own personal flair and create depth of interest in your dream bedroom space.


Home Office and Study Areas Chair Styling

With more people working from home, creating a space that is both functional and inspiring is crucial. An accent chair can break the monotony of office furniture, offering a practical spot to relax or read. It can also provide a comfortable seating area for visitors or meetings. Having the ability to move to an occasional chair can provide a welcome change away from your main desk when making phone calls or working on your laptop. Position next to a bookcase for ultimate functionality when reading and taking breaks.

  • Practical Advice: Look for a chair that balances comfort with style, ensuring it's conducive to both working and unwinding, like our Camille and Wingback chairs.


Entryway and Hallway Chair Styling

First impressions matter, and an accentchair in the entryway sets the tone for your entire home. It's not only a practical spot to sit and put on shoes but also an opportunity to showcase your style right from the start. Effectively incorporate an occasional chair into your hallway by placing in a convenient spot for family and guests to use when required. Place beside a small table, decorative lamp, or sideboard in your entryway, to create a more functional and welcoming atmosphere.

  • Style Tip: A brightly patterned armchair like our Digi Print Wingback will make a bold statement while the natural hue of our Calico Wingback will communicate a cleaner and more soothing vibe.


By thoughtfully selecting and positioning accentchairs, you can enhance the functionality, comfort, and aesthetic appeal of any area of your home. So, whether you're revamping your living room, bedroom, entryway, home office, or dining room, consider where you can add an extra spot for relaxation. Remember, the best décor is an expression of your personality and lifestyle — so don't be afraid to experiment with different styles, colours, and placements until you find the perfect fit for your home.
