Your next Home Project: Add an Accent Chair

Accent chairs have many purposes in a room. Not only is it a means of providing extra seating for your house guests, but it can also be a way to add a splash of color, or bring attention to the style of the home’s decor.

Show Off Your Personal Style

Whether you opt for a classic wingback chair to match your home’s traditional decor, or a slipper chair for a more modern feel, accent chairs can give a room that extra pop of personality.


The Usual Route

Shopping for a new accent chair can leave you unimpressed, feeling generic or just not finding the style and fabric combination in the choices that are mass produced.


Think Outside the Ordinary

Dig through your Parent’s/Grandparents garageyard sales, or search through OfferUp or Craigslist for that piece of furniture that has the perfect bones.

Often times, older furniture is made with better craftsmanship and more durable materials, so you will be left with an amazing one-of-a-kind piece at the end of the day.

When you have found your accent chair’s skeleton, you’ll need to find the perfect fabric to match your home’s style.

Here are some of our favorite home decor style & fabric combinations:

Modern/ Contemporary:

To match the clean edges and sleek style of modern homes, geometric patterns are ideal to bring sophistication and elegance.


Southwestern fabrics are trending right now, especially in boho-chic or rustic homes. An accent chair, or even a stool, upholstered with southwestern fabric will grab your guests’ attention and bring your personality to center stage.


The most popular fabrics used in classic or traditional homes is damask, a pattern that has been popular since its appearance in the 14th Century.

Mid-Century Modern:

The unique style that is popular in The Arizona Community due the popularity of famous architect Frank LLoyd Wright. If you come across a piece, a bright color fabric is a great way to bring a burst of color to honor the style.
