Spruce Up Your Home with Leather Accent Chairs & Leather Occasional Chairs

Look around your home -- does it need a slight refresh? Leather accent chairs & leather occasional chairs are a gorgeous way to upgrade a space. With fine leather, you can elevate your look and feel at home with made-to-order furniture from Williams Sonoma's The Leather Shop.

What Are Leather Accent Chairs & Leather Occasional Chairs?

Leather accent chairs are side chairs that complement a sofa, loveseat or sectional.

  • Accent chairs traditionally are low to the ground and include a frame and cushioning wrapped in genuine animal hide.
  • Chairs usually have a supportive back for your comfort, plus arms that let you rest your elbows, arms or hands.
  • With most accent chairs, the seat cushion can be removed from the chair's frame, so you can vacuum or lightly dust your furniture thoroughly.
  • Leather occasional chairs are chairs that are meant to integrate with your current furniture.
  • They are dubbed such, because they may move to another location in your home, depending on the occasion.
  • Examples might include a party where the hors-d'oeuvres are served in one room and the seating is in another or a big game where everyone gathers around the TV.

Mixing and Matching Furnishings for Ultimate Effect

Accent chairs don't have to match your other furniture exactly, but it creates a stunning impact when they do.

  • When shopping for leather furniture, it's generally best to buy all the pieces you want at once.
  • Leather is known for holding dye well without light spots appearing with use.
  • Each piece from The Leather Shop is made to order, so you want leather from the same dye lot.
  • Pair your accent chairs with current furnishings or order everything in the same silhouette for a complete design overhaul.
  • Once you get your leather chairs into your home, you can start to refresh other portions of the room, too. For instance, a new vase or lamp might be all it takes to look like a new space.
