Your living room furniture is about much more than decor alone. It can affect how you relax, how you entertain and how you spend family time. The right accent chairs should come in soothing colors and textures, provide ample space for guests and create comfort for the whole family.
From chaise lounge chairs to rocking chairs to armchairs, there are many options to consider when you’re shopping for living room chairs. Here’s how to make the best choice.
Match Your Style
Find a chair that matches your style.
• Midcentury modern. With its straight lines, simple curves and smooth textures, this decor style from the ’50s and ’60s is making a comeback. Consider a club chair in a solid, neutral color. Leather chairs with wooden legs are also a great choice.
• Traditional. For a more classic look, try a refined wingback chair or an overstuffed armchair. Or add a chair and ottoman combo—an ottoman not only adds comfort but also acts as a stylish accent.
• Modern farmhouse. Today’s trend for rustic decor means you can freely mix and match the pieces in your room. Pair your linen sofa with a cool chair featuring wooden and metallic accents. Chaise lounge chairs offer a modern yet classic vibe, perfect for a farmhouse feel. Rocking chairs are also a smart pick for this trending style.
Today’s comfy chairs are way more stylish than the old-school recliners your parents loved. Reclining chairs come with many more options—in fact, in some cases, you can’t even tell they recline. This means you can choose classy style and coziness at the same time.
For the ultimate in comfort, look for accent chairs with arms or an oversized chair with an ottoman. Just measure your space to be sure it will fit without cramping the room.
