Accent furniture is used in any room to complement an existing furniture set. These pieces include things such as mirrors, trunks and benches, and they are great for creating a homier look in every room in your house.
Accent furniture is not only aesthetic, but it can also be practical. Pieces such as console tables and chests can be used to store items such as extra bed linens and blankets. Accent chairs are great for providing extra seating during parties or when unexpected guests arrive and ottomans allow anyone to kick up their feet and relax. Choose pieces by names such as Remo, Martha Stewart or Ralph Lauren to create an interior look to rival even the most professional interior design.
Save money by buying accent furniture sets, such as a living room chair with matching ottoman. Choose colorful accents like simple white blossoms against a cool green background to add interest to living rooms that otherwise feature neutral-toned furniture. Traditional rooms look best with accents that feature exposed wooden legs and heavy fabrics with intricate designs. If you have a contemporary home, choose modern geometric patterns or solid colors to go with those clean lines and metallic finishes.
While you may not think it possible, even the smallest apartments can benefit from simple home accents. Place a large mirror on one wall to better reflect the natural light and give the illusion of a bigger space. Cushioned benches are great when you need extra seating, but can’t make a living room set work with your limited square footage. Even narrow accent chests can be placed against walls to serve as both art and storage, so choose pieces carefully that have both style and function when you’re short on space.
