How Do I Pick?
What colour? Patterns or solids? Dark or light? If you are not sure where to start, consider the colors that you already have in your room. Lighter colours easily complement darker colours by with a stunning contrast. Using similar, lighter colours to your background such as white create a sense of openness, spaciousness and freedom. The most important thing to remember is it’s your room, as long as you are happy with it nothing else matters!
Will it go with the accent pillows I already have? Accent pillows are lovely touches that you can add to a room in different spots or on various types of furniture. If the pillows won’t match your new sofa, it can be fun to freshen up the room with new ones.
What type of style do I prefer? If you are unsure about the kind of style of furniture that will work for you, think about your home style and personality and how you want to present your home to guests. You may prefer old traditional styles with wood, print or mosaic patterned fabrics or a modern look with metals and solid colors.
Choose the right upholstery. Cotton and twill oversized accent chairs can hold up to heavy use and have a pleasant texture to ensure comfort. For chairs that will be used less frequently, consider a luxurious fabric like velvet, linen, or chenille. Genuine leather and faux leather also have a sumptuous feel but are very simple to clean. Polyester and polyester-blends will remain vivid in areas that are exposed to intense sunlight.
Consider frame construction. For furniture that can hold up to years of daily use, focus on pieces that feature kiln-dried hardwood frames. Ones with reinforced corner blocked joints or screwed, glued, or doweled joints will be the absolute sturdiest. Plywood and particleboard frames are a more economical choice.
Compare support, hand-tied seats are comfortable and responsive, while seats with sinuous springs are slightly softer. Webbing suspension keeps the cost of seats low and gives chairs less support.
Final consideration is filling. If softness and plushness are your top priority, look for chairs that are filled with down or feathers. High-density foam filing is commonly used in accent chairs due to its durability and comfortable support. Prefer chairs with a smoother look? Options with wool or cotton batting will suit your tastes.
