    Hi D.sken. I would use a wing back chair as an accent chair in your living chair. It would look nice and it would add drama to your room. Good luck D.sken.

    There are countless styles of chairs that could be considered an 'accent' chair. You will want to purchase one that is complementary to other furniture, as well as to the decor of the room.

    Posting a picture of your living room space would instantly illustrate the existing colors and styles in the room.

    If you are looking for a chair that will function as a decoration mainly, then there is not a great need to spend money on one that is heavy or comfortable.

    However, if you are intending that this 'accent' chair be used for sitting in for longer periods of time, then it will be more important to find one that has more supportive inner padding and more durable outer fabric.

    As you give no indication of your style, I would say a chair that is attractive, comfortable and is the right price. Best of luck!

    Hello D.sken, I think that all depends on your preference, you want something you will find comfy, and i a color that accents your decor, don't worry so much about what is popular, because most of the time, the popular is NOT comfy. Hope this helps

    Hi D. Well, it depends on your tastes. I'm sure a chair with clean square lines, as Irving furniture leans towards, in a colour that either matches or contrasts with the rest of your furniture would look great. Good luck

    I would choose something wooden frame with sufficient cushions for comfort.
