Furniture, for as long as it has been around, is considered an investment, and a good quality piece is often kept, to pass down from generation to generation as a heirloom.
Often it isn’t what the chair or sofa cost that makes it valuable, but rather the moments shared with special friends and family.
It could be the chair you and your grandmother sat on as she taught you to knit, or the place that felt like home when you cuddled up close to your mom and just before bedtime. Memories and nostalgia are often worth more than any price tag
Furniture isn’t an impulse purchase and a lot of time and research goes into finding the right piece. Hopefully this article will inspire you.
I recently moved from a ‘smallish’ sized house to one with a third bedroom and quickly realized I needed more furniture.
Buying a new lounge suite or redecorating a new home is out of the question, and so I decided on finding the perfect accent chair for my bedroom.
I needed it to match the existing décor and style so I decided the brown accent chairs would work best across all the rooms.
Here’s a very quick guide to help you choosing the best brown or bedroom accent chairs.
If the room is already furnished, take photos of the furniture and refer to them when shopping. A good way to keep all your ideas together is to create a Pinterest board
Have a plan:
Everyone likes to be the spontaneous one, the fun one, the one who flies by the seat of their pants, but sometimes having a plan will save you time and frustration down the line.
Draw up a plan of the room. Have a look at how traffic will, or does, flow. Measure the space you want to fill and check the measurements against the dimensions of the accent chair.
It doesn’t makes sense swooning over a chaise when there’s only space for an ‘occasional’ chair
Sometimes you need to be ‘Practical Patricia’ and think about how you plan to use your new accent chair. If it’s going to be in your living room or a reading nook, then it needs to be comfortable and able to accommodate all shapes and sizes. If the chair is in your room or in the hallway it can be more of a decorative piece
If you are putting your chair in an area of the house that is used regularly, with a lot of grubby little hands and dirty feet in close proximity, then an ivory or white chair wouldn’t be the smartest choice.
If you want to brighten up a space and add some color, a dark brown velvet or leather probably won’t work.
The size factor:
For any room, the size of the chair should be in proportion to the space so the room doesn’t swallow it up, or have a chair too big for the space that the only look achieved is ‘cluttered chic’. Look at the height of the seat and make sure it’s balanced in relation to the other chairs in the room.

Described as a ‘linen’ color, I would confidently argue that it falls in the category of brown accent chairs. Everything about this seating option screams quality and style.
The Madison Park Camilla is a mid-century inspired barrel back accent chair with a quirky modern twist, from its button details on the back to the elegant tapered legs.
As far as brown accent chairs go, this one scores a solid 5 star rating on Amazon.

King’s Brand Brown Fabric with Black Finish Wood Legs Accent Arm Chair
Very much a neutral accent chair, the King’s Brand brown accent arm chair adds an impressive but not over the top look to a room.
The overall impression is that it’s comfortable, but best used as a statement or ‘occasional’ chair. Mention has been made that it is a little bit of a challenge to put together, but in general it gets great reviews on Amazon.

Safavieh Mercer Collection Jack Club Chair
As far as bedroom accent chairs go, this is my No.1 pick. With a piece of furniture like this in my room, I’m not going anywhere! The Jack Club chair is a modern interpretation of the classic loveseat, just a lot more comfortable and so much more stylish.
What could be a ‘strong’ chair with its sleek and angular lines, the button-tufting softens it and gives a feminine feel. The turned legs in black-finished birch wood, turns any room into a ‘boudoir’
Although it’s more of a green/olive accent chair than brown, it fits in perfectly with brown decor.

Space is a premium is some homes and apartments and an accent chair needs to fulfil more than one purpose.

Not necessarily the most obvious piece of furniture to have as an accent chair, the ottoman is accentuated with button tufting and comes in a variety of colors. It’s extremely well-priced and it sells itself looking at the ratings on Amazon.
