Accent chairs are the eye candy in the room

By: Elizabeth Van Dam, Interior Designer


They can add pizzazz, ground an already colorful palate, bring in that pattern that makes all the other elements work, and most certainly become the favorite spot to sit. Get creative with an accent chair. Certain fabrics that would be overwhelming on a sofa are fun and stylish on an accent chair. They can add energy and interest to a room. Try a chair with a larger footprint to balance out a sofa, or a pair of smaller chairs on either side of an interesting side table. Any of these lovely chairs will set the tone for the rest of your room.
