Armchairs and Accent Chairs For Any Room
Creating an inviting and restful retreat is all about having plenty of comfortable seating and adding armchairs and accent chairs is a great way to do just that. From classic club chairs to modern chaise lounges, Williams Sonoma offers a size, style and design that will enhance any home or business.
Types of Accent Chairs to Choose From
Chaise: Kicking up your feet and relaxing after a long day is easy when you bring a chaise into a space. This long and often curved design is suitable for living rooms or master bedroom retreats. Consider pairing it with a small round accent table for a place to put a drink or a book.
Armchairs: There's no look more classic than the armchair. This seat for one features arms that make it incredibly comfortable. Sure to become your personal throne, armchairs can be showcased individually next to a sofa or in pairs to create a little conversation area.
Swivel Chair: When you have an open-concept floor plan, swivel chairs make an excellent choice. They are easy to spin around, giving you the freedom to adjust where your gaze goes. Use it in rooms where the television is on one wall and the fireplace is on another. It is also ideal if you like to entertain because it makes it easy to create smaller conversation groups.
Wingback Chair: When you're looking for a chair that's really going to make a grand statement, the wingback chair is where it's at. This grand piece features a high back that wraps around the sides ever so slightly. It comes in both traditional and very modern designs, making it a timeless style that will have a permanent fixture in home decorating.
Horseshoe Chair: Shaped exactly as it sounds, this chair features a curved back that wraps around to form the arms in one seamless motion. They are typically much smaller in size than a traditional armchair or wingback chair, making them ideal for smaller spaces. Place a pair along the wall of a bedroom or in a dark corner of the home. Place a little accent table and a table lamp in between them to draw attention to the area.
Choose a Style and colour
Once you've determined what type of armchairs and accent chairs to feature in your space, it's time to narrow in on a specific design. Much smaller than a sofa or loveseat, the accent chair provides an opportunity to bring in a fun accent colour or a bold pattern. Consider where the accent chairs will be showcased and determine the existing colour scheme and any existing needs the space has. If the space is too busy already, select a simple, neutral chair. If the room is too bland as it is, entice the eye with a bold pattern, fresh animal print or gleaming metallic accent.
