Accent furniture is supposed to stand out, as it complements the room decor. Well, it is clear, as the meaning of the word ‘accent’ is emphasis. Any furniture piece called ‘accent’ goes far beyond functionality only. It is the decorative piece above all. Actually, you may not even have a lot of practical need for it, but it mostly serves as an eye-catcher, the focal point giving the zest to your room design.
How to find the right accent piece and find out whether you need it at all in your space, you might ask. The key idea is to find something that delights your eye and gives your home something extra to make a statement. We, the FurnitureCart team, are here to give you few inspirational ideas that might work well for your lovely home.
Let’s start from the easiest part. Select small accent tables, that play a big role. No matter whether an unusual design of the newly bought set or DIY upgrade to the good old occasional tables – it works great both with emphasis and function. Make a twist in your room’s design with ornaments, glass, mirror, or work on your old piece by painting or making an inlay. These tables can be used or transferred to any room of your house – from living rooms to bedrooms. Small but elegantly designed bedside table can become the star of your bedroom.
A large and imposing furniture piece can simply become an accent piece. A rich curio, armoire or china cabinet will play the main part in a room with muted furniture ensemble. If you have a kind of busy room, the accent piece should win with the striking color, that matches with what you already have in your room.
You shouldn’t forget about the medium furniture. In movies, the supporting role might be even more important that the main part. The floral and jungle themes are a hot trend this year, so why not to go in style? Accent chests and cabinets make a statement whether in a living room or dining room. Spacious bedroom cannot get along without focal dresser with special design, if chosen within the frames of overall decor scheme.
Don’t omit the entryway, it deserves your attention the same as the other rooms do. Moreover, it is the perfect place to use the accent furniture. A chest tall enough not to bow, when placing the keys or post works well here. Prefer a chest with a strong color and an interesting shape to impress from the very first step into your home.
