Armchairs & Accent Chairs

Armchairs That Suit Your Style

An armchair is the most personal item of furniture in the house. As a single seater chair, an armchair provides solace, comfort and respite. For this reason, choosing the right armchair is an important task. Whether you opt for a recliner, a chaise lounge or an accent chair, your selection will depend on a variety of factors.

Types of Accent Chairs

Accent chairs come in a wide variety, each offering a unique look and feel. Here's a breakdown of some popular types:

  • Wingback Chair: High back with tall wings on either side, offering a classic and enclosed feel.
  • Club Chair: Deep seat, wide arms, and a substantial presence, perfect for lounging and conversation.
  • Barrel Chair: Rounded back and sides, creating a sculptural and modern statement.
  • Slipper Chair: Armless and often lower to the ground, ideal for smaller spaces and adding a touch of casual elegance.
  • Mid-Century Modern Chair: Clean lines, tapered legs, and pops of color, reflecting the design aesthetic of the mid-20th century.
  • Swivel Chair: Base allows for 360-degree rotation, adding convenience and flexibility.
  • Recliner: Offers a reclining mechanism for ultimate relaxation and comfort.
  • Chaise Lounge: Extended seat perfect for stretching out and relaxing.
  • Rocking Chair: Curved chair with gentle back-and-forth motion for relaxation

Lounge Chairs and Accent Chairs: Space & style

The most important factors when selecting an armchair are space and style. Some armchairs take up a large amount of space, like plush recliners with high backs and protruding armrests.

Consider other furniture items in your living room like sofas, footstools, ottomans or poufs. Do you have a coffee table, side table or TV console? Will it add to the clutter or supplement the living room set?

You can also use an armchair as a complement to your existing furniture or as a way to add some contrast. It’s best to think about upholstery options too, like leather, velvet, or something completely different like rattan or wooden finishes. Pair colors and materials with existing furniture to create the perfect living room.

FAQ

Can armchairs and accent chairs be reupholstered or refurbished in the future for a refreshed look?

Yes, many armchairs and accent chairs can be reupholstered or refurbished to give them a fresh look. This allows you to update the chair's appearance without having to replace the entire piece, offering flexibility and cost-effectiveness.

What are the design considerations for incorporating accent chairs into a living room or bedroom setup?

Consider the available space, the style of existing furniture, and the desired function of the accent chair. Choose a chair that complements the overall design and provides additional seating or a focal point.

How do I determine the appropriate seating height and depth for optimal comfort?

The seating height and depth should be proportionate to the average height and build of the individuals using the chair. A general guideline is to aim for a seat height of around 18-20 inches and a seat depth of 20-24 inches for comfortable seating.

Can armchairs and accent chairs be mixed and matched for a more eclectic look?

Absolutely! Mixing and matching different styles, materials, or colors can create an eclectic and visually interesting space. Here are some tips to achieve that:

  • Find Common Ground: Look for unifying elements to tie your chairs together. This could be a shared color palette (think analogous or complementary colors), similar materials (metal frames, woven textures), or a recurring design element (rounded shapes, geometric patterns).
  • Balance is Key: Play with scale and proportion. Combine a bulky wingback chair with a sleek mid-century modern chair for visual contrast. Balance height by pairing a high-backed chair with a lower club chair.
  • Consider Comfort: While aesthetics are important, functionality matters too. Choose chairs with a variety of seating styles to cater to different needs. Maybe a plush armchair for lounging and a firmer chair for conversation.
  • Think Like a Curator: Imagine your chairs as pieces of art. Use them to create conversation areas or highlight architectural features. An eye-catching chair can become a focal point in the room.
  • Don't Be Afraid to Experiment: Eclecticism thrives on a bit of boldness! Mix and match patterns, textures, and eras. As long as there's a thread of connection, your unique personality will shine through.
  • Accessorize Wisely: Accentuate your chairs with throw pillows and blankets that pick up on the color scheme or design elements. A statement rug can also help unify the space visually.

How do I care for and maintain wooden armchairs and accent chairs?

Regularly dust the surface with a soft cloth and use wood polish or oil to maintain its shine and protect it from wear. Avoid placing wooden chairs in direct sunlight or near sources of heat to prevent warping.

What are the advantages of upholstered armchairs and accent chairs?

When it comes to sprucing up your living space, upholstered armchairs and accent chairs offer distinct advantages. Upholstered armchairs offer comfort, featuring plush padding, supportive armrests, and sometimes even headrests. Whether you're curling up with a good book or simply unwinding after a long day, these chairs provide a luxurious seating experience. Plus, they come in a wide range of styles, from classic wingbacks to modern club chairs, ensuring you find the perfect match for your existing décor. Upholstered armchairs are also known for their durability, especially when crafted with high-quality materials like leather.

Accent chairs, on the other hand, prioritize style and versatility. They come in a variety of bold colors, unique textures, and interesting shapes, making them a great way to add a touch of personality to any room. Their smaller size makes them ideal for space-saving, allowing you to create conversation areas or cozy reading nooks without overwhelming the room. Additionally, accent chairs are generally more affordable than upholstered armchairs, making them a budget-friendly way to elevate your décor.

How do I choose the right style of armchair or accent chair for my existing decor?

Consider the overall style of your space. For a modern look, opt for sleek lines and minimalist designs, while mid-century chairs add a retro touch. Match the chair's style to your existing decor for a cohesive aesthetic.

Are there armchairs and accent chairs suitable for outdoor use?

While most of our armchairs and accent chairs are designed for indoor use, we do offer outdoor chairs made from weather-resistant materials such as rattan or metal.

How do I choose the right size of armchair or accent chair?

Measure the available space and consider the scale of your existing furniture. Ensure the chair's dimensions are proportionate and allow for comfortable seating and easy movement around the room.

How do I determine how many armchairs I need?

Consider the size of your space and the desired seating arrangement. For smaller areas, one or two armchairs may suffice, while larger spaces can accommodate multiple chairs for a more conversational setup.

What is the difference between armchairs and accent chairs?

Armchairs are typically larger, more formal chairs with armrests, while accent chairs are smaller, decorative chairs that add a pop of style to a space. Armchairs tend to have a larger and more substantial design, while accent chairs offer versatility and can be used in various settings.
