Accent chairs can transform any room in an instant. From luxuriously soft fabric pieces to colourful crowd pleasers, statement seating comes in a wide range of styles – but choosing a chair that commands attention without overpowering the rest of your décor is key to making this trend work.

If you’re trying to find the perfect accent chair for your home, we have some great options for you to choose from.

A Pop of Colour

Colourful, loud, quirky.

A brightly coloured accent chair adds a finishing touch to an otherwise simple space.

Best suited to uncluttered rooms, colourful accent chairs can bring life and energy to your space. This style can sometimes be prone to looking garish against other bright features, but it’s the perfect way to liven up an area that’s less than eye-catching.

Follow these steps to get the look in your home:

1. To really make a statement, the Guyer chair comes in a variety of dazzling colours, including custard, pink and blue. Tuck it into a corner of the room for a more subtle effect, or position it front and centre for maximum impact.

2. Accent chairs in earthy tones can be just as chic as ultra-bright pieces. To perfectly capture the appeal of natural colours, use the Juniper chair in orange to add warmth to your living spaces.

3. Implement striking patterns to create focal points. The Ravity chair’s modern, geometric design makes it an ideal accompaniment for a contemporary home.

Dark Sophistication

Elegant, understated, low maintenance.

The look:

A dark-textured accent chair takes centre stage, creating a perfectly proportioned space.

You’ll love this look if:

Accent chairs don’t have to be bright to draw the eye. Whether you opt for classic black, bottle green, navy blue or reliably chic grey, chairs in more subdued hues can complement any space. Unlike candy-coloured accent chairs, you won’t need to worry so much about matching darker pieces with your existing décor.

The following accent chairs can add monochromatic elegance to your home:

1. With its dark grey fabric finish and studded detail, the Cleo chair offers comfort and elegance in equal measure. Perfect for a large bedroom or living area, this generously sized accent chair can bring a more harmonious feel to your space by filling in empty corners.

2. Make your home office look extra professional with the Parker leather-look recliner. Sold with a matching footstool, it makes a style statement while providing you with ergonomic seating.

3. Use the ERIN chair’s dark green colour to give your lounge room a little personality. Featuring a smooth velvet finish, this piece would look great against timber floorboards.
