Today's accent chairs are made from assorted raw materials like wood, reed, steel, aluminum, fabrics and other indigenous materials. They can be large, medium sized or petite. People from different cultures have different body structures and the chairs can be manufactured to suit particular human builds. Most sofas and recliners today are bulky, large and square shaped and usually don't have any space or leg room underneath. Most of us really go for lush, soft and heavily padded chairs because they give a lot of comfort and relax us. They usually come with pivoting wheels to make up for their heavy weight so we can move them around the room.
Accent chairs must also fit the mood of the room. When it comes to design, the choices can be overwhelming. You can either stick to period pieces that all go together seamlessly or you can combine styles to add some contrast and interest. A contemporary chair that is not too over-the-top and upholstered in cream, black or brown leather or fabric can complement more traditional furnishings. An armless chair that is close to the floor and has no visible wood or metal details would go well in any living room setting. Accent armless chairs are favorites of kids and pets. Getting into and out of the chair is very easy.
Accent chairs are available in wide range of furniture like ottoman, arm and armless chairs, side chairs, decorative cushioned chairs and leather chairs. All these pieces of furniture are made of high quality wood. Chairs are also available in micro-fiber and leather materials. Micro-fiber materials are stronger and flexible compared to wood. Leather accent chairs are cheap and provides great comfort and style to your room.
Historians say that the Egyptians were the first who used accent chair furniture with hieroglyphics to decorate their homes. They considered it as a luxury and a status symbol. That is still a concept that is used today with expensive and exquisitely designed chairs that grace grander homes. The Greeks and Romans eventually caught up with the trend of using chairs as a piece of furniture to relax in and the fad spread throughout other ancient civilizations around the globe like Asia and Western Europe. As accent chair furniture spread across different cultures, the designs evolved and took a variety of shapes, motifs and sizes.

Often accent chairs are mistaken to be the same as dining chairs. This is a very wrong impression people have in mind as these chairs serve two different purposes. Though both give comfortable seating, but are meant to be placed in different rooms and thus should not be treated to be the same. Moreover, accent chairs are heavier and bulkier in size and then dining chairs.
