How to Incorporate Mid Century Accent Chairs into Your Home

First, their most basic function: accent and lounge chairs add seating, allowing you to invite over more friends for your next dinner party, game night, or movie night. They also can help to balance out a space.

If you have a big focal point like a sofa or a fireplace, a well-placed accent chair or two might be just what it needs. There's definitely a chair out there for ANY space in your home, which is why they're some of our favorite modern living room furniture!

In our opinion, a well-designed space will have furniture pieces that play off one another without being "matchy-matchy." So, you don't have to choose accent chairs that are the same style and color as your sofa. Just try to create a balance.

Your accent chair choice doesn't have to stand out. It can be classic or traditional if that's what suits your decor best. There's no right or wrong way to design your house. That's the beauty of home design! At Modern Digs, we have a variety of luxury modern accent chairs ranging from the whimsical to the timeless.
