Accent chairs can add a touch of decor, visual interest, and functionality to any room, but they are especially wonderful in the bedroom. From slipper chairs to occasional accent chairs and bergeres, you can hardly go wrong. Even if you have a modestly sized room, tucking in a chair can provide a nice place to read a book, put on your shoes, or sit back and relax. Here are ten master bedrooms with accent chairs that look stunning.
1. A comfy traditional bergere
The bergere style accent chair in this bedroom not only looks beautiful, it would be a most welcoming spot to sit after a long day. The traditional chair fits in perfectly with the transitional style of the space and the look of the bed’s frame and headboard. A neutral colored area rug, window treatments hanging from a prominent rod and rings, and a lovely shade of light blue on the walls helps to create a master bedroom that’s as attractive as it is comforting.
2. Making a niche
Some master bedrooms with accents chairs use the furniture to set apart a section of the space, such as in this design. A modern slipper chair is put into a niche along with a small table and lamp, making a great corner for reading. The warm shade of brown on the walls is a wonderful neutral backdrop for a trio of art prints, and it also helps pull out the other tones in the room. A few select pieces of decor near the bed and a bench at its foot also pair well with the look of the chair.
3. Dramatic color blocking
This room has not one, but two small slipper chairs as accents, each covered in the same printed fabric. Considering the dramatic effect created by color blocking the paint used on the walls and ceiling, the chairs work well in the space. An interesting light fixture, metallic silver room divider and dressers, and a set of matching decorative mirrors on either side of the bed add tons of interest to this transitional design.
4. Plush and glamorous
A fabulous slipper chair and club chair, both covered in gorgeous cream colored fabrics, are an ideal way to finish off the design of this glam bedroom. A sparkling column, impressive chandelier, and padded accent wall behind the bed are just the beginning of what makes this space look so lavish and upscale. Floor to ceiling window treatments, a mirrored side table, and coffered ceiling with inlaid lights also add flair to the design.
5. Separate spaces for sleeping and relaxing
If you have the space in your master bedroom, why not create an entire seating area within it? In this design a pair of attractive chairs flank a small table, and facing the group away from the bed creates separation and adds another purpose to the space. To maintain cohesiveness with the other elements in the room, the same fabrics were used for the bed pillows that are used for the throw pillows on the accent chairs. This design tactic was also used elsewhere in the space, as parts of the bedding and window treatments share the same fabric.
6. Cool and contemporary
There’s plenty of color in this contemporary bedroom and some interesting art on the walls, but the thing that stands out most is the style of the modern accent chair placed by a large window. It has a dark wood frame, soft white fabric, and is accompanied by a matching ottoman. Nearby a trio of ottomans covered in deep orange and white fabric were pushed together to serve as a bench at the foot of the bed, and a great shade of blue rounds out the room’s color palette. With so much natural light provided by the towering windows in this space, two bedside table lamps suffice for task lighting.
7. A great mix of fabrics
Multiple patterns are in this master bedroom, even though the color palette is neutral. A cobalt colored vase stands out despite its small size next to the neutral tones in the space, as does the variety of prints around the room. The plush accent chair has a floral motif, while the area rug, throw pillows, bedding, and a lamp each sport different designs. Everything melds together beautifully, including the soft wall color and choice of decorative mirrors.
8. Modern yellow and gray
The visual impact of the yellow accent chair in this room is huge, largely because it matches the style of the bed’s plush yellow frame. These two pieces aren’t just furnishings, they also serve as major decorative elements in the modern design. Shades of white and gray complement the standout duo, as does the hue of the wood flooring. This design proves just how much you can elevate the look of a space by adding the right accent chair.
9. Rustic meets luxurious
The overall look of this bedroom is very warm and inviting, but it’s also sumptuous and luxurious thanks to a host of sophisticated details. An elegant chandelier hanging over the bed provides decoration and intimate lighting, while a prominent club chair that verges on being a chaise sits near the windows. Plenty of gorgeous fabrics, an interesting paint finish on the wall, and lots of warm woods create a fantastic retreat — who wouldn’t want to rush home to a room like this?
10. Lovely shades of blue
Blue reigns supreme in this master bedroom, with the exception of a pair of contemporary wingback chairs positioned near the bed. The color of the chairs matches that of the tufted headboard, and mirrors of different sizes above the bed help reflect light to cover the space. A sea of different blue tones covers the wall and the rest of the space, and select neutral decor provide gorgeous finishing touches.
