Not only do accent chairs provide additional seating for your living room (or any room in your house), they are a great way to add more style and flair. Almost nothing is more flexible than a fabric accent chair, as you can choose from an unlimited amount of fabrics, patterns, designs, and styles. When it comes to making this decision, Bassett can help meet your needs.

Whether you’re enjoying some peace and serenity in a quiet nook, escaping into a good book in your study, or enjoying a cocktail with a friend in your living room, a comfortable fabric accent chair quickly becomes your go-to retreat. A soft and luxurious fabric creates a unique personality, surrounding you in total style and comfort as you settle for quiet repose.

How To Pick An Accent Chair Fabric

Fabric considered the “best” type for chairs varies from person to person. It all depends on your tastes, style of decoration, and many other factors. For example, your preferences may differ if you put a recliner in the living room vs. a chaise in the family room. But if you’re feeling intimidated when it comes to picking the right upholstery fabric, you’re not alone. After choosing the perfect living room or accent chair for their space, many think it's a huge task to pick the fabric and color. So that’s why we put together this mini-guide to key you in on the things you need to think about if you want to find your ideal chair fabric.

Types Of Fabric (a.k.a How Your Chair Will Feel)

The types of fabric you can pick are a vast range—everything from linen to leather. Since your opinion about fabric is probably influenced by how it feels against your skin, we advise visiting one of our stores to see our complete selection of hundreds of designer fabrics.

Color Of Fabric (a.k.a How Your Chair Will Look)

The best move when it comes to picking a color is to consider the function of your furniture and how you decorate. If you want to make a statement and create an inviting space, light or bright colors can increase your room's “fun” mood. However, if you expect your chair to have a lot of wear and tear, you may opt for a natural or dark color for its ability to hide dirt. If you need any design help, our design consultants can help match your chair’s upholstery color to your space.

Upholstered Accent Chair Sizes

The average upholstered accent chair has a 16" inch to 18 " inch seat height. However, if you plan on using the chair next to a table or desk, make sure to leave about 12" inches from the seat to the bottom of the table to allow for legroom or incorporate a small accent chair free up more space. As far as width and depth are concerned, it's hard to pin down an average. The depth can change depending on the type of chair. For example, a lounge-style chair will have much more depth than a standard chair. So when looking at width and depth, try to measure and match the available size you have in your home. You can measure the overall height of an upholstered accent chair from the floor to the top of the headrest. Depending on how tall you are, you may need a lower or higher back to make sure you're 100% comfy. Make sure to check the style of your chair, as some types like wingback may have a different back measurement.
