Your Guide to Accent Chairs

Just as accent walls add personality and class to your home, accent chairs do the same, but better.  “How can they do it better?” we hear you ask, and the answer is simple, practicality. Not only do accent chairs simply look stunning and have the ability to transform a dull and lifeless corner of the room into a bright and eye-catching space, they are also incredibly comfortable. Our ATM Living accent chairs are made with the highest quality materials, ensuring a luxurious feel for optimal comfort. 


Where should you put an accent chair? 


Accent chairs look wonderful against contrasting backgrounds, as demonstrated by @cloud_interiors below. You’ll want the accent chair to be in an area of your home where you will use it, often facing towards a window is a great place, perfect for relaxing with a book with the natural light shining through.

Which colour is right for your home?


You may think that the answer to this question is already decided for you, based on your current colour scheme throughout your home. However, accent chairs are a great opportunity to find your own style. Is there a colour that you absolutely adore, but it’s nowhere to be found in your home? Perhaps a royal blue or blush pink. By matching the frame colours of furniture, this allows you to freely choose your style and colours. For example, the brass frame below matches the bed frame seen in the corner of the image, resulting in an inspired look working cohesively as a whole.

Accessorising your accent chair


A key thing to remember here is that you don’t want to overdo it. The chair should be the key focus here, so you still want to see the colours and details of the chair. A simple soft blanket and a singular cushion is the perfect extra touch that it will need. You can either choose to match these to the colour of the chair, or find a constrasting shade to make the chair even more eye-catching to your guests.
