12 Accent Chairs for Under $300


Living Room

The most common place for accent chairs is in the living room. Use a set of matching chairs facing the sofa to create a conversation area. A set of matching chairs to flank the fireplace or media console is another great option. Single chairs can be placed in free corners with an end table and a lamp to fill up more space and provide an intimate and additional sitting area.

Bedroom

If your bedroom is big enough, place a single accent chair or a set of matching chairs in a free corner or on the wall that is opposite the bed. Make this spot cozy with an ottoman, end table and lighting. Accent chairs can also be placed at the end of the bed instead of a bench. If you need an office area in your bedroom, use an upholstered accent chair at the desk for a more formal and sophisticated look.

Entryway

Accent chairs in an entryway provide an inviting first impression for guests. Place a single chair with a small end table at the side of the stairs or use a matching set of chairs on both sides of a console table to fill up more wall space and provide a soft texture.

Dining

Traditional dining chairs are different than accent chairs but they can definitely be used in dining rooms. To create a contrasting and formal look, use a set of matching chairs for the ends of the table. Another option is to place an accent chair on both sides of a buffet or sideboard which will look great and provide extra seating when needed.

Kids Room

Don't forget about the kids! Rocking chairs are often being replaced with a comfortable accent chair. Chairs are very practical in a kids room for reading and visiting. Create a reading corner with an accent chair, end table and lighting. Don't forget an ottoman or pouf for a comfortable place to rest. Also, place a fun pillow and colorful throw on the chair to appeal more to kids.
