Rustic Accent Chairs

Rustic accent chairs come in different shapes and styles that add warmth to this simple decorating style. These chairs come in a range of styles and materials that fit with all types of rustic decor, ranging from vintage inspirations to more modern takes. Staples® carries a variety of accent chairs that meet the needs of most users.

Understanding Rustic Decor
Rustic decorating styles focus on simple designs that celebrate the past. Spaces contain furniture made from weathered materials, repurposed items, and metal, providing a link to the homes in which our ancestors lived. Weathered wood frames paired with dark greens, blues, and muted reds combine for traditional rustic spaces. For a contemporary feel, pair rougher shapes with brighter colors. Include large pieces of furniture with simple lines and sleek shapes for a modern take on the rustic look. You can also pair rustic occasional chairs with artwork, metal, and steel designs found in industrial spaces for a cohesive look that has a unique, personalized feel. Several accent chair models combine natural wood finishes with woven fabrics, creating ideal sitting areas in these types of rooms.

Considering the Types of Rustic Accent Chairs
Accent chairs come in different styles that maximize the space in most rooms. The lightweight design of occasional chairs provides a seat that is easy to move between rooms whenever you need additional seating space. Club chairs are large and have thick padding, which balances the look of sofas and large furniture in open rooms. A slipper chair offers a streamlined design that sits lower to the floor, making it a good choice near coffee and end tables. Chair-and-a-half styles take the place of loveseats in smaller areas, while still providing a comfortable place to sit. Consider two or more wingback chairs for rooms with multiple seating areas.

What Features Are Available on Rustic Accent Chairs?
Rustic living room chairs come with different design features that blend with various woods and colors. Consider an unfinished captain's armchair for use in the dining room or when creating your unique occasional chair. There are models made from recycled ship wood, which adds variations in grain and color for added visual interest. An accent chair with an ottoman increases comfort and adds a modern touch that blends with other decor in the room.

Are There Different Upholstery Options Available?
Woven cotton and wool upholstery provide durability that resists wear and tear in high-traffic areas. Linen styles offer a softer look and feel that adds a traditional touch to rustic spaces. Consider leather for use in rooms with an industrial or traditional feel, or in offices and waiting areas for a professional look. There are also distressed polyurethane and vinyl options that resist rips and tears and provide simple cleanup of drips and spills.

How Do You Clean Rustic Accent Chairs?
Leather, vinyl, and polyurethane upholstery require a damp cloth for removing dirt and spills. A mild detergent removes most spots from fabrics. Check the manufacturer's recommendations for proper cleaning solutions. Keep wood frames clean and buff out scuffs with oils and cleaners that are appropriate for the material.
