Casual Accent Chairs

SORT BY:
Casual accent chairs make sure visitors have a comfortable seating option in homes and offices. With a variety of styles and colors available, you can choose pieces that make a bold statement or blend seamlessly with the surroundings. Staples® carries a range of accent chairs that fit within most decorating styles.

Considerations for a Casual Accent Chair
When choosing an accent chair for casual spaces, you need to decide whether it's filling a larger space and focuses on comfort, or if it needs to simply be available whenever guests arrive. Consider smaller models without arms for rooms with limited space. Large club chairs work well as accent pieces in large rooms and balance substantial couches and other pieces of furniture. The chair design should provide a similar height to other seating in the room. Many contemporary seating options sit lower that traditional models, which makes these an ideal scheme for slipper chairs and loungers. Use accent chairs in front of the fireplace or across from a love seat to create an area for conversation, or pair one with a table and lamp for a comfortable reading area.

Choosing Accent Chairs That Match the Space
These chairs come in fresh designs that feature neutral tones and smooth lines. Consider casual occasional chairs with curved legs and arms in traditional spaces, or go with a wingback style for mid-century modern rooms. Unfinished chairs mesh with vintage and cottage styles and provide a way for decorators to create their own color combinations. Add accent chairs in bold patterns in otherwise neutral rooms for an added pop of interest. Textured fabrics highlight a subtle decorative touch, even in spaces with a focus on minimalism. Models that combine leather and chrome or dark finishes ensure offices have plenty of seating that matches the professional appearance of the space.

Do Casual Accent Chairs Have Additional Features?
Some accent chairs include cushions that provide lumbar support. Others have curved arms that support the shoulders, providing comfortable seating for longer periods. Rocking chairs serve as extra seating in bedrooms, nurseries, and doctor's offices to help soothe babies and young children. Folding designs are simple to move whenever additional seating is necessary, and they store well in a closet when not in use.

Are There Different Upholstery Options for Casual Living Room Chairs?
Casual accent chairs come in polyester fabrics that provide extra durability for heavy-traffic areas. Leather provides a professional touch in the office or a more masculine feel in parlors and formal sitting areas. Consider soft velvet, microfiber, and linen for country cottage spaces or those with heavy wood pieces for added balance. Woven fabrics resist wear making them a good choice for living rooms and waiting areas.

What Frame Materials Are Available With Casual Accent Chairs?
Most accent chairs have wood legs and frames for a durable finish. Options with stained finishes provide protection against scratches and damage from normal use. Consider chairs with chrome frames in modern rooms, or go with metal designs when creating vintage or industrial spaces.
