An accent chair is exactly that — an extra piece of furniture meant to attract the eye and add a little something special to a room. But what really makes an accent chair an accent chair? It often features a bright color, a cool pattern, or a combination of the two. But if you're looking for something a little more subtle that still pops, opt for a neutral hue or muted design that instead boasts a unique silhouette or textured fabric.
So, whether you're shopping for your bedroom, dining room, living room, or anywhere in between, a punchy pattern, bright shade, or timeless style can immediately tie the space together and make it feel a bit more polished. But it can also feel like a major design decision — we get it. After all, a statement piece of (often) expensive furniture can be the hardest decision you make all week. So why stress? These chairs aren't just stylish and functional; they're also all under $150, so you can take the plunge without regretting the charge.
