Accent armchairs have become the must-have piece of homeware in recent months. With all of us spending a lot more time indoors than in previous winters, having the perfect sitting spot, whether that’s for reading a book or curling up and watching TV, has fast become a top priority.
Making our living spaces more beautiful is a great source of joy here at The Style Life HQ and we really love pinning away, collating our favourite styles to inspire us as soon as a home renovation opportunity arises. We’ve noticed the increasing popularity of having an accent or a statement chair to compliment your sofa set up and we are very much here for it.
The birth of fashion forward homeware brands such as Loaf and MADE.com have really helped to rejuvenate the homeware market and we’re seeing style conscious consumers treat their interiors much like their wardrobes, updating with the latest trends and really keeping an eye on those standout pieces.
Of course designer homeware can cost a small fortune, but the obsession with their luxe fabrications, bold premium colour choices and vintage stylings has also spawned lots of collections on the high street that have drawn similar inspiration to help you get that aspirational look, without breaking the bank.
While it’s clear from the below shopping that when it comes to armchairs, we certainly have a ‘type’, comfort of course is still key. We’re still crushing after wide and deep bucket style seating that we can really sink into. If a chair simply just looks pretty, you’re not going to want to enjoy it and your living space should give you plenty of pleasure, especially when we see so much of it right now.
Most of the chairs we have found come in a multitude of colours and some with a choice of fabrications, so if you like a shape or style, click through to find similar styles.
We’re obsessed with these scallop edged accent chairs. While they look like designer pieces, they’re actually £100 each! These stylish chairs come in six different colourways, so you’re bound to find something to suit your room.

Don’t you just want to climb on and sink into this incredibly sky blue armchair. We feel like we could spend hours here reading, drinking cups of tea and watching the world go by quite happily.
Aptly named the Loveseat, this bold red armchair is sure to be a living room favourite. Bright, stylish and commanding of attention, this chic style comes in seven different colourways. We love the strong architectural and angular feel.
There’s just something very Midtown Manhattan / Devil Wears Prada about this chair. Is strong, stylish but very classic and styled in a white walled with monochromatic accents room will be a real standout piece. Great for an at home study too.

We’re a little bit MADE.com obsessed, but who can blame us. The gorgeous velvety finishes and the vintage styling aesthetic will help you create a sensational space. In fact, you might love it so much you won’t want to leave. Sorry.
Primrose, £399, MADE.com (two colourways)
If all the colour and the velvet in this column so far has terrified you, then this gem is for you. A pop of colour in the buttons of the back of the chair help to add a little detail to this beauty, but its gorgeous, soft colouring ensures you have a statement chair without too much ‘look at me’. Perfect for those who already have a lot going on in a their living space.
We’re obviously here the gold accents, it really does add a touch of decadence to any room and of course hints in chairs can be reflected in home furnishings such as lamps and mirrors too. This curved chair perfectly marries the structure of the metal framing and the soft touch of the velvet for a really sumptuous piece of furniture and under £300.
Ok, we promise this is the last bit of MADE.com furniture in this column, but just look at her. What a beautiful and luxurious piece of furniture design. We are so all about the curve.
