Chairs of all shapes and designs can be part of a living room furniture suite. Living room chairs can provide additional seating in the main area, such as facing a fireplace or home entertainment center. A chair or two and a small table placed in another part of the room, such as by a corner window, can provide a nice reading nook. Spending some time curled up with a good book in a big, beautiful leather accent chair can be very calming and restorative to the body and soul.
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.
The living room accent chairs come in as many designs one can be imagine. It can be a simple straight-back chair with arms or armless, lounge chairs and rocking chairs and so on. As it is not difficult to find them in various colors and textures, it works in perfect conjunction with the existing furniture as well as to plan a new room set up.
Think ahead about how you want your accent chair to fit into your residence. The combination of main construction material (wood, chrome, stainless steel, etc.) and the upholstery material makes a statement in and of itself. How durable do you need this chair to be? If it's form over function, you can make an awesome decorating statement without worrying too much about the effect of Aunt Bertha's visit.
