An accent chair is a place that most people just love to sit in. Have you noticed how they can make a comfy spot even better. Erika spends a lot of time at my house. I think she knows where just about everything is and knows
all most of my secrets. This chair happens to be her favourite spot to claim when she comes over to plan a project, write a blog post, or make me clean my closet. (true story) She will take off her shoes, grab herself a Diet Coke and head to her throne.
Why an accent chair?
Grab a Seat
All of this got us thinking about accent chairs and how very important they are for guests that come to visit. If you’ve ever paid close attention, you’ll notice that the couch is the last place people sit if there is another option. Maybe they are less intimidating, maybe they are more comfortable, or maybe, they swivel. Honestly, they’re just a relaxing and fun place to sit.
Our guests seem to gravitate towards this chair. However, it took us many months of research and debating before we decided to buy it. Allan and I both loved how it felt to sit in but, we weren’t sure we would really like it. I’m not sure why we were second guessing ourselves because, it’s perfect. Just ask Erika!

makes the space complete
Details add up and make all the difference in a home. Ultimately, the main goal is to make people feel welcome. I love hosting family and friends in my home and part of that is making them feel comfortable. Putting the finishing touches on any room brings me great satisfaction especially when I know that the people I love most will be able to enjoy it! Oh, and yes, Erika is always welcome!
