You may not want your home to be bright, bright, bright, but there’s always space in every home for an accent piece. We think that chairs make excellent accent pieces. They may be an interesting shape, they may be a bold colour, but what they are always sure to do is to catch the eye, as well as providing the ultimate in comfort. Take a look at our chosen selection of cool accent chairs. These classic pieces definitely add a lively touch to each of these interiors.
First up is Eero Saarinen’s Womb Armchair proving that accent chairs don’t have to be colourful to make an impact! The solid maroon shade of the chair, beautifully stand out against the neutral creams and strong browns. Just imagine curling up in the chair watching the world go by. Beautiful!
Playing with fabrics is also a great way to make your chair standout. Hans J. Wegner’s Shell Chair is already a fantastic looking piece which instantly draws the eye, but choosing an animal hide upholstery is sure to grab even more attention. The Shell Chair looks unbelievably fresh and bold.
Not a fan of animal prints? Then select a bold colour – a colour that will stand out against the rest of your interior. Why not take this living room as inspiration? The large violet sofa may dominate the room, but it’s the yellow and purple Jeffrey Bernett Metropolitan Chair that gets people talking! It’s a wonderful piece for relaxing in front of the fire.
