The living room is one of the most important areas of a living space: it’s where you can entertain friends, read a good book, or settle in with a glass of wine at the end of a long day. If you don’t currently love your living room decor, sometimes all it takes is a new statement chair to instantly revive your seating area.
Just like an art piece, a statement chair draws the eye’s attention, so it’s the perfect piece to reflect your personality. (It also doubles as a great conversational piece when you’re entertaining company!) From geometric accent chairs to transparent ghost chairs, here are a few ideas for your next statement chair, no matter what your budget is.
- Geometric Chair
Rather than splurge on a new painting or print for your walls, try adding a geometric accent chair instead to liven up the aesthetics in your living room. If you’re searching for an accent chair on a budget, go for a Konstantin Grcic-inspired geometric chair. The distinctive design will add an eclectic look to your living room seating area and can be moved to the dining room for additional seating as well.
- Wegner Style Shell Chair
There’s no doubt a Wegner-style shell chair adds a sleek look to any living room. While it's not as attention grabbing as a geometric chair, we love how its beautiful design functions as a more subtle accent piece. If you already have a light hued sofa, go for a shell chair in a birch wood with caramel brown leather or pale grey upholstery.
- Eames Molded Lounge Chair and Ottoman
If you’re thinking of splurging on one piece to update your decor, a leather lounge chair is a great investment that will instantly add a mid-century look to your seating area. A leather lounge chair with warm wood accents like the Eames Lounge Chair will complement any existing wood pieces that you have (like a coffee table or bench). As a plus, this lounge chair is very comfortable as well.
- Ghost Chair
If you’re a minimalist but still searching for your ideal accent chair, a transparent chair is a great budget-friendly way to add an eclectic feel to a monochromatic living room. Ghost chairs are a lot more than meets the eye: they can add a modern feel to your seating area and help give the illusion of an airy, brighter space.
