An Occasional Chair for Every Space & Aesthetic

When deciding on an accent chair for your home, it is important to choose one that is versatile. This flexibility means you can use it in more than one space so that your new accent chair won't be limited to just one room — it will have multiple uses throughout its lifespan.

Something to keep in mind while looking for a new accent chair is your home's existing style, colour, and texture. This way you can be sure to pick one that will complement your existing décor — unless your goal is to buy an accent chair that stands out and makes a statement!

Here's some design inspiration to help get you started with choosing your new accent chair:

Sophisticated Living Areas

A sophisticated living space is not only beautiful to look at but makes you feel beautiful and chic while being in it. Achieving this is not done through having expensive furniture or elegant artwork, but creating a well-tailored and well-balanced space.

Adding high-back occasional chairs or a velvet accent chair is the perfect way to incorporate a sophisticated aesthetic in the room while not compromising on comfort.

A Timeless & Classic Space

Styling your home according to a more classic design aesthetic is a great way to decorate your space in a timeless, balanced, and tasteful way. This type of interior is the perfect choice for those who would rather enjoy timeless, attractive furniture and décor for years than have to constantly redecorate to keep up with modern trends.

Incorporating an accent chair or occasional armchair in a neutral colour is a great way to make the space feel warm and welcoming while still adhering to a classic design style.

Funky & Eclectic Interiors

Eclectic and avant-garde interiors can bring together different patterns, textures, colours, sizes, and proportions into one space while still looking stylish.

This type of design pairs different furniture pieces that normally wouldn't complement each other — such as funky occasional chairs with retro occasional chairs — to effortlessly create added dimension, intrigue, and drama.

An Accent Chair in Every Type of Fabric

It is not simply the shape and design of an accent chair that makes it unique — the materials used to finish or upholster the chair are crucial for its unique aesthetic. Our range of accent chairs includes a variety of materials for you to choose from when trying to find the perfect chair to suit your style.


A velvet occasional chair instantly adds a level of elegance and sophistication to a space. Velvet's colour also gives far more depth as it catches and reflects light across its angles and folds, making the colour look richer and more inviting.

We stock velvet accent chairs in a variety of colours and designs. From a simple, sleek high-backed velvet accent chair to a more detailed, tufted design, you will be spoiled for choice when you shop online for your new accent chair with Home Detail!


A fabric occasional chair offers you a comforting experience of warmth, softness, and relaxation that you will always look forward to. The use of fabric for occasional chairs for a living room is perfect for those wanting to keep their décor simple yet stylish.

From the material to the design, a fabric accent chair from Home Detail will elevate the style of any traditional or modern room.
