The Power of the Accent Chair

Spring is about to blossom and that leaves some us desiring a little refresher to our abode.  Updating with an accent chair or two can be just the game changer you are looking for.  The birdcage chair above by Mitchell & Gold called the Bastille chair (for obvious reasons) could just the right change you need; featured here in a metal cage of stainless steel with Tibetan fur.  In this post we will highlight some of the top trend elements to look for when you start your search.

Trend #1-The Swivel Chair.  Jonathan Adler hit the nail on the head when depicting the Studio 54 era vibe of the Louche chair in velvet…really…could we love this chair more?  The Thayer Coggin swivel below is a bit barber-shop-meets-automobile and we are loving it for its proportion and matte gold mixed with cream leather.

A trend we reported on last year was about a surge in lucite (aka acrylic) options in the marketplace.  While the trend is going strong in traditional clear, we are seeing the color morph into a smokey color that is so hot.  For example the Raphael Lucite and Sheepskin chair or the Smokey Lucite swivel from the aforementioned Mitchell & Gold.

Another trend to explore is the metal framed chair.  Sleek and polished to high shine screams Yves Saint Laurent luxe life.   Style and price run the gamut, but less is more with this style shifting focus on the frame.  Shown here in graphite with stainless, Mongolian sheep skin, and also a blush velvet and gold metal by West Elm priced very reasonably $599!  Mix the modern frame with a luxe fabric for glam chic style.

Cut-out shapes are styles straight out of the 60’s; from backless, to arm rest cut-outs the look has a vintage-fresh vibe.  Keep it in present decade with menswear upholstery  or simple neutrals to keep the look interesting and not distracting to eye.
