Unlike the big furniture or an architectural structure, accent chairs are easy to replace and remodel. Like fashion style, it always alleviates us from the existing home establishment, which has been there for quite some time, bearing weary visual tiredness.
Accent chairs could allow you to change the flow of the room without a monumental makeover. It draws attention to anchor the sight and enables the vision in a consistency. Even they’re the most versatile statement piece in the room and could work with many ideas, there are still some considerations before you pick an accent chair. Hereafter are four tips when you make the choice:
Work With the Current Style
The purpose of positioning accent chairs is to accentuate, which means to highlight within the surroundings. It should go with the current style and fits with the rest of the room. For example, in Abstract Style, as quite a few unique architectural and decorative elements are used, it lends itself to bold colors. In such a case, accent chairs in contrasting colors may not be incompatible. It will cause vision clutter and create chaos. On the contrary, it is better to opt for ultra-minimal types of chairs, such as the modern Saarinen Chair, whose clear outline demonstrates a taste of simple elegance and adds a twist to make the room pop.
Picking Up the Right Color for the Accent Chairs
Usually, in a home, the 60% color is often dominated by the wall, large piece furniture, and floor-covering. The 30% secondary color goes to the Accent furniture, window treatment, and other sizeable tapestries. And the rest 10% lies in artworks, soft decorative furnishings, throw pillows, small decorative accessories. Explore inspiration from the secondary colors and put them into your accent chairs. Always keep in mind that accent chairs add a statement to the room other than taking over the room. They create additional dimensions while imbued in the room’s colors while standing out.
Accent Chairs’ Scales Still Matters
There are many types of accent chairs, wingback, lounge, chesterfield, etc. Their size varies from big to small. To not let oversized chairs overpower the rest of the furniture in the room, it is critical to know the height of the couches and other chairs in the same area. The rule of thumb is to keep these surfaces equal in order to maintain the proportions of the room. A petite side chair will be faded away in a spatial living room or next to a large piece of furniture. Be aware of the sizes of items around the accent chair and make the best proportional alignment out of them.
Using Accessories to Enliven the Space
The most popular colors for accent chairs are usually ranging in blue, green, and muted yellow. A cushion or throws in contrasting color with the accent chairs will acquire a completely new outlook. It is wise to get inspiration and extract elements from small accessories in the same room to harmonize the atmosphere. Lamps, planters, or artworks all could contribute to this synchronization and create a perfect flow seamlessly.
