Living room accent chairs

With their ability to furnish smaller spaces with practical seating arrangements as well as complement interior decorating schemes, living room accent chairs are a perfect addition to any home decor scheme. A living room set is often matched, but an accent chair should stand out as a piece of its own while complementing the other pieces in the room.

When choosing a color for your accent chair you need to decide whether you prefer a color that blends in, for example, a neutral shade or a color that appears a lot in the room, or one that stands out, for example, a color that occurs less often.
