What Houzz contributors are saying:

Charmean Neithart Interiors added this to 10 Furniture All-Stars of Versatility
One unique chair. Have you ever stumbled upon an eye-catching chair that is completely different from the other pieces in your room? Buy it and let it be a conversation piece. Small occasional chairs look lovely next to a chest or an armoire, and because of their petite size, they can easily be switched around for extra seating.
Laura Gaskill added this to How to Use Mirrors for More Light and Style
3. Wall mirror behind a chest. Sneakily suggest there is more space than meets the eye in a small apartment by lining a wall with mirror and scooting a chest in front. The effect is subtle but very glamorous.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Why Your Room Wants a Small Chair
A small chair does not always have to be part of the seating area. It can act as an accessory, filling what would otherwise be a bare wall or an empty corner. And, like this one, it can add interest, texture and color. The juxtaposition of the animal print against the patterned chest is genius, as is the very large-scale foliage against the very small-scale chair.
Becky Harris added this to You Said It: 'Make It Easy on Yourself' and More Houzz Quotables
"Don't let your quarter-inch-scale floor plan have the final word." –– Becky DietrichAmen. What may not work on paper may work beautifully in the real room. You'll never know until you get in there and start moving furniture around. Also, I loved Dietrich's very personal introduction to her lesson, about how she and her husband gave each other a small chair as an anniversary gift. Full story: Why Your Room Wants a Small Chair
Mike Dietrich added this to Travel Takeaways: Decorating Lessons From a Lavish Paris Hotel
This same principle was put to use in a California show house, where very large-scale foliage was paired with small-scale chairs and a moderate-size chest.
