Accent Chairs- an easy and affordable way to jazz up your space

Accent chairs are a very simple way to make any living space more interesting.  If you have always wanted a nice place to relax and read, try adding side by side accent chairs with a small table in between into an open space.  This could even work for the "dead space" often found in bedrooms or a hallway.  These chairs are most often used in living rooms to connect space or create more sitting room.  When choosing an accent chair, you first want to decide if you want this to blend in to the room or if this is a good opportunity to use a stand-out color or pattern to create more pizzazz in your space.  If you do decide to go with a more neutral color to blend into the current room, this can be a perfect opportunity to add a colorful toss pillow to make it a bit more trendy.  These can easily be changed out for a new look.  

Make sure that you consider how you want to use the chair when selecting a design.  If it is for a reading nook, perhaps you'll want something bigger and cozier.  If it is to enhance a current living room space, a sleeker chair might be a better fit.
