Guest Picks: Accent Chairs
I am freelance writer by day; interior design lover always.
I love accent chairs because they're some of the most versatile pieces of furniture for the home. If you're looking to add color or pattern into a room, a jazzy accent chair just might do the trick. They also make just as much of a statement and impact in the overall design if done in neutral, understated fabrics. Just remember to make sure that whichever accent chairs you choose are comfortable, as they could be the best spots to kick back and relax in your home! — Annemarie from Brunch at Saks
Empress 4-foot 6 Bedframe Accent Chair, Aubergine - GBP 499
My heart pitter-patters every time I catch a glimpse of this regal chair. Fittingly named "The Empress," this tufted accent chair with detailed feet would look stunning in any corner. The line offers eight different hues, but I think this aubergine color is so amazing.
Viceroy Chair, Blanc Linen with Apple Green Finish - $999
I love the subtle bit of green on this otherwise neutral chair.
Safavieh Bentley Club Chair - $499.95

Designed by the famous Conran furniture makers, this chic but comfy-looking chair seems like a great place for a quick nap. It comes in three colors, but the stone option above would fit in nicely with any decor scheme you already have in place.
Hailey Blue Plastic Rocking Chair, White - $159.95
A modern twist on a traditional accent chair is this white rocking chair from House Beautiful. I that it's versatile, as it would look nice anywhere from a formal area to a recreation room in the basement.
Arietta Chair, Emerald Como - $999
A bit on the pricier side, this exclusive accent chair by Crate & Barrel will look good in any room, and its classic design and feel will continue to accent any decor trend for years to come. It comes in array of colors, but this emerald really caught my eye.

This chair makes me smile. Paired with a fluffy pillow, it could easily be the most popular seat in the house.
