Affordable Accent Chairs

Maybe you live in a small apartment and have had to settle with a single sofa or, perhaps, you don’t really fancy the traditional set-up of a 3-piece arrangement? In either case, there will be times when you wish you had an extra seat for visitors or just to fill that ominous empty space?

This is where an accent chair proves invaluable and the best thing is that you don’t need it to match your current seating. In fact, the more different the better.

You’ll, no doubt, find lots of examples but with fancy prices to match – over £1,200 in a lot of cases. There are, however, cheaper options out there which are just as good looking and well constructed, you just need to search a bit harder. With this in mind, here are a few decorative occasional chair options that won’t break the bank.
