Accent chairs can serve two purposes: décor and additional seating. Therefore, when picking an acccent chair to complement your sofa, have fun with it! If you have a solid color sofa or sectional, find a patterned accent chair that incorporates the solid color of your other furniture. Adding a pattern to the room will add a layer of depth to the decor. If you already have patterns in the space, consider adding textures. Leather, faux fur or velvet are textures that can add a new visual element to the room without overwhelming the decor with patterns or new colors. Adding accent chairs around the coffee table in your living room will add more seating and encourage conversation when you have guests over. Use accent chairs to add fun and functionality to the room.
