The Perfect Living Room Chair For Your Home

Whether you’re in the process of making your living room ultra-modern, or you just want a hint of modern, accent living room chairs are the way to go. Aside from the functional benefits, an accent chair is one of those furniture pieces you can move into different spots and really play around with. Just having one of these to move around in your living room is an instant way to freshen up your decor. Put it by the window, pair it with a sofa, or make it your centerpiece.

1. Low Lounge Chair

A low living room chair turns a modern living room into a space you can really relax in. The angular design and metal-cloth mix give it a modern look. Make it homier by adding a blanket on the side.


2. Modern Feminine

Don’t let the clean lines and angular design fool you—modern can be feminine too. Pick a living room chair in pastel shades, with a slightly rounded shape. Adding a matching footstool is also a great idea, and it’s an easy way to make your decor look consistent.


3. Homey Modern

Get a full set with your accent living room chair. A matching pillow in an interesting shape adds a modern touch. And having a footstool makes your living room chair extra comfy and perfect for spending hours reading, napping, or just relaxing and enjoying the view.


4. Swan Chair

Add some personality to otherwise dull angles and lines—a swan living room chair is perfect for that. For colorful living rooms, pick a neutral color, like gray, to balance it out. For neutral living rooms, add a pop of color with bright red or yellow.


5. Vintage with a Modern Twist

Plastic chairs don’t sound like a very good idea for indoors. But a stylish plastic chair begs to differ. It’s definitely modern, and you have even more color and shade choices. Plus, it’s a great no-mess, easy to clean piece of furniture.


6. Industrial
