Funky Accent Chairs for Fab Pads


Accent chairs are all the rage these days and a great way to brighten up a room. They can be used in any room of the house and are stand out pieces that draw your eye to them. They are a great focal point and there are some amazing designs available at the moment. The cool thing is, they don’t have to match your scheme so long as they match in color-wise. The whole idea is that they stand out so you can feel free to go wild with bright and bold colors and fab mix and match prints! Very retro and so cool.

Here are some fun patterned ones I found online and some stunning fabrics including my favorite, the Liberty prints. Oooh so stylish!

Those are all those kind of one-off style chairs so ideally you would have just one rather than trying to match them. They are quite striking so it is better to use them individually as a statement piece or focal point. There are quite a lot of retro styles coming back into fashion so it might be worth your while checking out second hand shops and markets. One mans trash is another mans treasure for sure! You may very well get lucky and find an old velvet retro armchair or patterned piece.

Another way to bring an old chair back to life is to have it re-upholstered in a trendy fabric. There is also the option to paint an old one with fabric paint so you could choose a bright color to make your accent chair stand out. Funky cushions can make a plain color stand out more too. Think Moroccan theme or animal prints for instance. Those Liberty fabrics are really stunning and can be bought through the main site. Designers Guild is another fabulous and striking fabric designer you should check out when looking for inspiration and stand-out and bold designs.
