Accent chairs are a staple of interior design and there are thousands to choose from online and in stores. If you tend to feel a bit overwhelmed by options, however, we can help. Combining our favorite trends with customer reviews, we’ve created a list of the best accent chairs for your home.
Best Farmhouse Accent Chair
It comes as no surprise that this elegant, striped accent chair is a customer favorite. Its color palette, subtle wingback design, and nailhead trim all nod to sophisticated farmhouse style. We love the look incorporated into coastal and traditional interiors, too.
Best Mid-century Modern Accent Chair
Best Leather Accent Chair
Simple and sophisticated, this leather chair is incredibly versatile. Its stitched, bi-cast leather upholstery is designed to maintain its glossy finish, even as it wears over time. Add it to your living room, den, bedroom, or home office. Of our 60 reviewers, 97 percent would recommend this chair to a friend (and we would, too).
Best Velvet Accent Chair
We read the reviews and one thing is certain: our customers love the color of this lounge chair. Rich purple velvet covers its curved silhouette for an unexpected pop of contemporary flair. It’s the perfect seat for putting up your feet to relax and read a good book.
Best Small-space Accent Chair
Don’t let a lack of square footage keep you from buying a stylish seat. This armless chair adds a modern touch to any room, be it a studio apartment, small bedroom, or cozy home office. We love how its subtle tufting and tapered legs nod to mid-century design.
Best Oversized Accent Chair
Chair-and-a-half styles are rising in popularity for serving up more space to get cozy without sacrificing aesthetics. This chair is particularly loved for its elegant turned feet, herringbone upholstery, and nailhead trim – a classic look that complements most any home style.
Best Accent Chair with Ottoman
Sink into this comfortable lounge chair and you’ll see why it’s on our list. According to reviews, it would be Goldilock’s pick – not too big, not too small, not too firm, and not too soft. It may not be a recliner, but does come with an optional ottoman for stretching out your legs.
