Are you searching for that final, elegant touch for your living room or hallway? A stylish piece of accent furniture might be the exotic twist you’ve been searching for.
Accent pieces include everything from occasional chairs to console tables, kitchen carts to hat racks – furniture that adds a little extra flair, complementing the room and items surrounding it. That doesn’t mean accent furniture needs to be impractical, though. On the contrary, there are plenty of designs that are striking and useful.
Accent tables look great, and are also useful as storage and display spaces. Consider the buffet table — decorative, until it becomes a serving space when you entertain.
Accent chairs can sit gracefully in corners and in front of desks, or they can be pulled out for a comfy place to read a book or to seat a guest. They go just as well in the sun room as they do in the study.
Moreover, experienced designers say accent furniture is a cost-effective way to freshen your home for a new season. Their tip for autumn: neutrals and warm colours.
