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.
Want a statement piece with a difference? Then you can’t fail, by selecting Eero Aarnio’s suspended Bubble Chair as your accent piece. The one in home is situated next to the window allowing you to curl up in the cushioned cocoon, as you survey the view. This chair really does add a touch of class to the room!
There’s no need to stick to just one accent chair. Why not choose two?! The classic leather Eames lounge chair is bold, unique and totally eye-catching. Teamed with the ottoman, it’s even better. But why stop there? The dark RAR Chair in the background is cool, comfortable and cute. If we lived here we’d have difficulty choosing which we’d want to sit on most! We know we feature these two chairs a lot in the blog, but it’s because they are simply sensational! We are sure you’ll agree.
So what are you waiting for? Liven up your home with an accent piece!
