Have a Seat

Every home should have an "Accent chair" or a "Statement chair" and it should fit you like your favorite sweats. By that I mean, your chair should be a comfortable quay that holds you for hours without any discomfort. And as the word "statement" suggests, these pieces of furniture should be able to hold their own in a room and enhance the style quotient of the room all while they speak tons of your personality. 
I've been meaning to do a post on the accent chairs in my home for a long time now. So when a representative from One Kings Lane contacted me to collaborate and introduce their Complete Guide to Modern Chairs and do a post on my very own statement chair in my home, I was more than game. I've had to go through the demanding task of finding the perfect accent chairs for my Indian style living room and another pair for my modern, clean line entertainment room. It was challenging to work with two very different styles at the same time. But never the less, I think we did accomplished what we set out to do.
The basement in my home has been dedicated to watching TV and it's where we entertain friends and family on a game night. Since it's secluded from the rest of the home, my husband and I decided on a contemporary look for this space, and that meant furniture pieces with modern and clean lines. We looked high and low and when we couldn't find what we wanted in the market, we went the custom designed way. Our quest ended at the Belfort Design Center. We zeroed in on the modern swoop arm chairs that combines the elegant form with the modern function we were looking for. With a wide variety of swatches to choose from, we finally agreed on a graphic pattern for the upholstery. With sleek, clean lines complemented by the graphic pattern, this chair creates a lovely space to linger in and is super comfortable.
And for those of you wanting to add an eclectic feel to your decor through a statement chair, I have you covered too. The chairs in my Indian style living room had to have the Desi Vibe. And that meant bold color palette and an intricate pattern play. So when we found these slipper chairs from the Ravenna Collection at World Market, we were sold. These arm less chairs were perfect without the boxy look and they did not overwhelm the space. With a profile reminiscent of a laid back look and walnut finished whimsical turned legs, their wide seat is perfect to put your legs up and sit back and enjoy a cuppa. 
The designers at Herman Miller believe that a chair is meant to fit the body like a piece of clothing and I couldn't agree with them more. Do take the time to research and invest wisely in a piece of furniture that is going to stay with you a while. Remember comfort is the key element as comfort adds harmony to style and balance to form. And if you've been stumped about your personal style or what genre of style a piece of furniture belongs to, then the Home Decor Resource Guide at One Kings Lane was created to inspire and educate home decor enthusiasts like your self when purchasing and styling the perfect pieces of furniture for your home. For self taught design addicts like me, a design tool like this is an invaluable source of inspiration and knowledge. So if you need that extra nudge to identify your style go right ahead and click here. If your anything like me and can't stick to a particular style, then eclectic is the way to go as a fresh mix of chairs from different genres can definitely add spunk and personality to any room !

And don't forget to make it a Happy Wednesday !!!
