What are the different types of accent chairs?
There are many different styles of accent chairs to choose from, so you’ll be sure to find something to suit your interior. Here are some of our favorites:
If a decorative chair has arms, it is considered both an accent chair and an armchair. A traditional armchair usually comes in the same fabric and style as a sofa and is designed to match, whereas an accent armchair is designed to stand out, usually with a contrasting fabric and color.
2. Slipper Chair
Chairs that are armless are often referred to as a slipper chair. They typically have short legs so sit closer to the ground, and are a great option for an accent chair, especially in rooms such as the bedroom or smaller living rooms, as they don’t take up much space.
3. Wingback Chair
Wingback chairs, also called wing chairs, have a high, solid back, winged sides and often come with wooden legs. Wingback chairs have been around since the 17th Century and are still as popular today, thanks to their classic and elegant style.
4. Chaise Lounge
The chaise lounge is a piece of furniture that dates back several centuries although it has maintained a presence in home decor throughout the years. Renowned for being a chair that you can lie on and put your feet up on, chaise lounges are often found in the bedroom but are increasingly being used in modern lounges too.
An ottoman is a handy piece of furniture to have in the home that can be used as a footstool, additional seating, storage or even as an alternative coffee table. Typically, an ottoman can be found in a living room, but they can also be found in playrooms and bedrooms too. Many people opt to get an ottoman to match their sofa, but it can be a great way to add flair to a space by using a contrasting shape and fabric.
6. Tub Chair
A tub chair sometimes referred to as a bucket chair, is a large round chair with a semicircular back and no separate arms. It usually has a low back that is curved for both style and comfort. The tub chair is a modern take on the traditional armchair so is perfect for contemporary interiors.
