What is an Accent Piece?
Accent pieces complement a room’s interior design. They are stand-alone pieces that tie together the room’s aesthetic. Brighten up an empty corner or punctuate a dull space with statement accent furniture.
How to Shop for an Accent Piece
Accent pieces don’t have to be strictly for design purposes; they can also be functional. Do you need extra seating, but want something more refined than a basic chair? Browse our selection of ottomans, table ottomans, benches and poufs! Whether a braided design, plush fabric, or faux fur, an ottoman or pouf can spruce up your space with style.
Does the color scheme of your home lean neutral? An accent table or stool in earthy shades can add texture and seal in the look. Conversely, an accent piece that does not blend in by color can create a smooth contrast and bring out otherwise hidden undertones. For example, if the rest of your furniture is black, a bold white table or metal side table will strike a balance.
Styling with an Accent Piece
Style a welcoming bench in an entryway. (For a chic look, impress with an antique bench; for all styles, a wooden stool is a classic.) Break up a monochrome wall or draw attention toward an overlooked area with a stunning accent table. Provide unexpected style with a sturdy and luxurious ottoman. Whatever you do, don’t let an empty corner or area drown out your vibe. Go for the accent!
