Accent furniture is all about paying attention to detail. What is it that your room needs? How does it reflect your personality of you? The finishing touch that completes the décor of the room (and your heart!) is what the accent furniture piece imparts. Predominantly accent furniture differs from the occasional furniture that is utilitarian in nature.
Accent furniture is most often a highly valued, ornate piece that is employed to add excitement, and effect and to emphasize a theme of one’s reverie in the décor of the room. Such furniture is placed in the hallway, living room or dining room, and sometimes bath suites where the piece adds character to take the décor to the next level.
Accentuate your living space with assorted pieces of furniture. From the type of hardwood floors to the shape, color, and wood of the doors and the design of the wall scones, there is an array of features that can be added, removed, or replaced to create the perfect space for your vision. Flea markets can also be a treasure trove for affordable vintage furniture.
You can even bring out your DIY skills for furniture restoration by repainting old furniture with bold and vibrant colors to add a miraculous radiance. Custom-built furniture is less expensive and it also caters efficiently to your taste and needs. For a luxurious feel, you can opt for classic Italian or French furniture made of fine wood or even a bold standalone accessory.
Some of the commonly used Accent furniture include:
In the living room, living room accent chairs make the décor look striking. Some accent chairs come upholstered in leather, fine fabric, or simply crafted out of steel or iron. Two accent chairs with a stylish end table make a beautiful seating ensemble while enhancing the living room’s beauty
For the hallway, a console table or a French country style accent bench and a mirror with a bold frame hung above, lead the way to elegance.
The living room furniture can be accentuated further by adding vibrant patterns and colors against the neutral undertones with accent chairs, tables, and display cabinets.
An important part of a room often left out is the ceiling. Designer ceilings are not just for fancy restaurants and ballrooms. Wooden boards for the ceiling can instantly make your urban home feel like a holiday log-wood cabin. So, go ahead and create your own designer canvas by adding patterns, lights, and features of your taste by adding accent furniture to your home.
