Try These Living Room Ideas with Accent Chairs
If you’re like most people, you have lots of great interior design ideas and visions for your living room setup, but making them happen is a bit of a challenge. You want something a little different, something to express a bit of your personality, but none of the living room furniture you’ve seen quite hits the spot.
What do you do?
Try this: start thinking of your living room ideas with accent chairs in the mix. Even just a single accent chair can turn a standard living room décor into something that is uniquely yours.
5 Accent Chair Ideas for the Living Room
The following ideas will give you a better sense of how to use accent chair design, styling and ensembles to put your personal touch on your living room design.
Mix Furniture Styles
If your living room is generally a mid-century modern furniture style, a more traditional chair style can offer pleasing contrast.
Choose a Contrasting Colour
All blue furniture suite? Try a gold chair, even if it’s in the same style.
Try an Alternative Patterns or Texture
A busier pattern and/or heavier texture on your chair will provide a great counterpoint to clean lines and solid colours on your other furniture.
Combine Pieces for an Accent Ensemble
Accent chairs don’t always have to do all the work by themselves. A chair and ottoman combination is the simplest example. But you can also pair your accent chair with a coffee table, either in colour or style, a signature lamp or any other piece that you think will pair nicely.
Start With the Chair
If you’re stating your living room furniture design from scratch, there’s nothing wrong with adding the accent first. That single living room chair can give you design direction for the rest of the room.
