Living Room Accent Chairs: Showcasing Our Standouts

Arranging your living room furniture is about more than just function. How you have it set up will affect the spirit of the area and the first impression that it makes on guests. It's also a reflection of your personality and taste. That’s why it’s important to decorate it appropriately: in addition to serving as a gathering place for visitors, it's also where precious quality time will be spent with your friends and family members. 

Accent chairs are often underestimated pieces of furniture, but they have the power to transform your living space into a haven of personality and relaxation.

Whether you're looking to infuse a pop of color, add a touch of sophistication, or create a cozy reading nook, presents an array of options that cater to every preference and aesthetic.

To that end, here are a few standout pieces from our extensive collection of living room accent chairs, each meticulously crafted to enhance your space. From classic designs to more contemporary pieces that still embody the Stickley philosophy, these chairs are more than just furniture – they're statements of refinement and luxury.

Why add accent chairs?

There are plenty of reasons to include accent chairs in your living room, in addition to the obvious function of providing additional seating for family and guests.

Visual Interest

Accent chairs are often chosen for their design and aesthetic appeal. They can introduce color, pattern, texture, or a different style to the room, enhancing its overall look and creating visual interest.

Focal Point

Depending on their design and placement, accent chairs can serve as focal points in the living room. They draw attention to themselves and can anchor a seating area or conversation space.

Scale and Balance

In interior design, accent chairs can help achieve a sense of scale and balance within the room. They can fill empty corners or spaces, creating a more harmonious layout for your living room and ensuring that it doesn't feel overcrowded or sparse.

Texture and Comfort

Accent chairs often feature upholstery covers that provide a contrast with those on the rest of the room’s furniture. These materials add variations of color and texture to your living room as well as providing comfortable seating for reading or relaxation. Stickley upholstered furniture can be customized with a wide range of fine fabrics and leathers.

Living Room Accent Chairs from Stickley

Here at Stickley, we offer a wide variety of high-quality living room accent chairs. Below are a few of our standout offerings.

Stickley’s Mission Collection

From Stickley’s Mission Collection

Our Mission Collection includes timeless pieces of American-made furniture that were inspired by the Arts and Crafts design movement of the late 19th century and early 20th century. Characterized by hardwood construction and simple lines, the accent chairs from this collection celebrate the skill of the hand-craftsman and feature clean and practical forms. 

Bow Arm Morris Chair with Loose Cushion

Named after William Morris, leader and champion of the English Arts and Crafts movement, this piece features slatted sides, an adjustable back, and long, gracefully bowed arms supported by elongated corbels. It is available in either solid oak or cherry wood and can be upholstered in your choice of fabric or leather.

The Mission Footstool is a perfect accompaniment to this piece, also available in either oak or cherry and in your choice of fabric or leather upholstery. To further unify the space, you may also want to accessorize with a few of our 8x10 Mission picture frames to display family photos and art.

Stickley’s Mission Collection

From Our Park Slope Collection

Park Slope is Mission style at its heart, but evolved and refined to appeal to modern sensibilities. It continues to highlight Arts and Crafts materials and construction, but the curves are softer and more organic—a 21st-century twist on the beloved classic. 

Park Slope Accent Chair

Featuring tall square spindles and dramatically sculptural armrests, the Park Slope Accent Chair is a statement piece unto itself that curves gently and gracefully around the body. The reverse-tapered legs are reminiscent of pieces from our Mission Collection, and the chair is available in either solid quartersawn oak or cherry. 

Stickley’s Mission Collection

From Our Surrey Hills Collection

The pieces included in Surrey Hills are inspired by British Arts and Crafts designers who sought to bring the beauty of nature indoors and make it the centerpiece of the home. It shares certain qualities with the Mission Collection, such as quartersawn white oak and generous posts, but trades spindles and reverse tapers for a framed trellis design.

Surrey Hills Accent Chair

This casual-cool slipper chair is an expression of our Arts and Crafts motif, with a contemporary twist. The exposed wood lattice trellis grid on the outside back of this chair provides visual interest to the piece, becoming a slightly curved back panel with side rails that bend into angled rear legs. A tight back cushion and a generous tight seat rests in the white oak frame. Available in fabric or leather, this accent chair goes perfectly with other pieces from the Surrey Hills collection, such as the Surrey Hills Wood-Frame Ottoman

Stickley’s Mission Collection

From Our Walnut Grove Collection

Made from gorgeous black walnut, the pieces in our Walnut Grove Collection are sure to excite fans of mid-century modern style. Curvy and sculptural in all the best ways, these pieces feel lightweight and airy while still being built to last, like all Stickley furniture.

Walnut Grove Recliner

Our Walnut Grove Recliner is more than meets the eye! It has the sophisticated profile of a normal accent chair, but can ease from a closed position to reveal a hidden footrest and full recline. The leather-upholstered seat back features a “surfboard” taper and headrest tuck, while dowels of black walnut form graceful arms and legs. The armrest is padded with leather for added comfort.

The living room accent chairs available from Stickley are not merely pieces of furniture but symbols of exquisite craftsmanship, timeless elegance, and unmatched comfort. Each chair is a testament to our commitment to quality and design excellence, making them standouts in any living space.

Whether you're drawn to the classic charm of the Morris Chair, the cozy embrace of the Park Slope Accent Chair, or the mid-century modern allure of the Walnut Grove Recliner, we offer a range of options to suit every taste. Visit our living room accent chairs page to view the entire selection!
