Colorful accent chairs are making waves in decor, and it’s not hard to see why: They’re an easy way to update and invigorate your space. If you find yourself boxed into a too-neutral color palette but you’re not ready to make a huge change to the room, add an accent chair for color or focus. One or two new accent pieces can turn your color palette around instantly. With your new accent chair color in place, adding a few decorative accessories in the same color will give your space that elusive put-together look.

Accent chairs are available in every decorating style and color, making it easy to find the perfect match for your home. Here are some of our favorites in the top decorating styles.

Glam accent chairs

Velvet texture and luxurious patterns are the must-have fabrics for your glam accent chair. We love the growing trend of gold metals, like satin brass, as an extra-glamorous touch in glam decor. This style is all about being a little over-the-top in decorating, meaning accent chairs that make a bold statement.

We love boho style for its vibrant colors and Bohemian patterns. Look for saturated color palettes and lush fabrics for your boho accent chair. Don’t forget to add accent pillows and a throw in similar colors — the boho style is all about comfort.

Mid-century modern accent chairs

Mid-century modern style is fun to play with in any room. The exaggerated lines and saturated colors of the 1950s provides many options for accent chairs. We love the whimsical shapes and cheerful colors of these chairs.
