Whoever invented accent chairs must have been a genius. A simple accent chair can be just the perfect place to sit down and put on your boots before leaving the house on a stormy day. It can also be a plush and comfy chaise, not exactly a sofa and not really a chair, but a piece of furniture that exudes luxury and invites prolonged lounging.
Chairs of all shapes and designs can be part of a living room furniture suite. Living room chairs can provide additional seating in the main area, such as facing a fireplace or home entertainment center. A chair or two and a small table placed in another part of the room, such as by a corner window, can provide a nice reading nook. Spending some time curled up with a good book in a big, beautiful leather accent chair can be very calming and restorative to the body and soul.
