Here at Mum’s Place, we are constantly bringing new pieces to our showroom, and the accent chairs are the pieces that move around our floor the most. We love accent chairs because they are simple and easy ways to add more seating in your home as well as introduce new styles, themes, and accents to your space. Our showroom is full of frames ranging from traditional to contemporary, bold to subtle, coastal to eclectic, so we have accent chairs for everyone.
If you’re looking for an accent chair but you’re not sure where to start, browse through some of our recommendations below and keep in mind that most of these options can be customized with fabric, wood finishes, or nail head trim.
Jenson Accent Chair by Universal
The Jenson Accent Chair by Universal is a rustic contemporary chair with a lot of laid back style. The ribbed leather back cushions provide support and comfort to match the plush seat cushions, while the arm rests contrast the plush cushions with a stretched leather band that has a little give, but provides just as much support as the seat itself. These contrasting forms and applications make this chair an interesting contemporary piece, and the combination of bronze metalwork with brown leather are a motif to traditional materials.
This chair is available in both brown leather and black, so if the brown is a little too casual for you, the black will dress up your space and bring some modern sophistication to your living room. Pair this piece with heavily grained wood for an industrial look, or go sleek with more bronze metal accents and glass.
Bryant Chair by Flexsteel
Chances are, you’ve seen the Bryant Sofa or Sectional in our showroom many times, but it is less likely that you knew that this frame was also offered as a chair. One of our favorite boxy contemporary frames, the Bryant Chair is simple but sturdy, and will anchor itself in your living space so it is important that you have a large room so that it is appropriately filled.
We love this piece because it is incredibly versatile and customizable. Available in every Flexsteel covering, including leather, this piece can be made more feminine with a floral print, coastal with a natural linen upholstery, or more traditional with an ornate print and complimentary throw pillows.
Atticus Swivel Chair by Taylor King
The Atticus Swivel Chair by Taylor King is a multifunctional piece. Not only does it swivel and spin, but it also glides, making it the perfect chair to relax in. The modern shape has incorporated a subtle traditional element of curved arms. The shape of the arm that connects the arm rest to the frame is simplified but elegant, and gives you the option to place this chair in almost any style setting. A beautifully embroidered throw or pillows will dress it up and compliment the sophistication of the frame itself. This chair tends to sway more transitional, so while it is mechanically multifunctional, it also stylistically versatile. Pair this swivel chair with traditional pieces, modern sofas, and everything in between.
Flemington Chair and Ottoman by Flexsteel
The Flemington Chair by Flexsteel is the most traditional chair in this list and one of the more traditional chairs in the collection. Carved wooden legs and pleated rolled arms with welting are an homage to traditional design, while the tight back and t-seat cushions keep this frame on the simple side. You can dress it up with ornate fabric or tone it down for a sleek and sophisticated look with a velvet or other non-patterned fabric.
It is also available with a matching ottoman that sports carved legs and welting details. The raised cushion on the ottoman adds comfort while the form matches the seat cushions of the chair as well. Pair these two pieces with dark mahogany wood sideboards, an elegant coffee table with beveling, or beautiful glass and metal accessories to match the nail head trim.
Collins High Leg Reclining Chair by Comfort Design
Another transitional frame, the Collins High Leg Recliner is a modern take on a classic recliner. The tight back cushion and minimal stitching that defines the adjustable headrest make this piece casual yet refined. The tapered wooden legs and welting details create a streamlined presence, perfect for any Mid Century Modern home. Like most of the accent chairs on this list, the Collins High Leg Recliner is available in any of the Comfort Design coverings while offering endless comfort with its reclining abilities.
The two button reclining mechanism is located on the inner arm, hiding the indication that it will move. The power behind the reclining chair is ideal for anyone who wants to reach the ultimate comfort reclining position without hassle or effort while the USB port offers even more convenience, allowing you to charge any of your devices while you relax in this fantastic chair.
Bahia Honda Accent Chair by Universal
One of the more paired down and coastal pieces on this list, the Bahia Honda Accent Chair by Universal is a beautiful example of minimal design. The faded sandbar wooden arms give the piece warmth while the snow colored fabric upholstery brightens the piece, encompassing all that we love about spending the day at the beach. Somewhere between contemporary design and rustic style, this accent chair is the perfect accessory for any room that exudes grace and charm.
Pair this with any of the pieces from our Coastal Design Blog, match it with a linen colored Bryant Sofa, or place it next to a glass and chrome end table for effortless elegance. Or, get a few to create a conversational section at your new beach house or California Coastal home.
