How to use Statement Chairs as a Focal Point

Nothing feels cosier than curling up with a good book and a cup of tea on a glorious statement chair.

Whether you own or rent your home, accent chairs are a versatile accessory that will easily update a room, instantly lift the mood, and bring you guaranteed visual impact. We have a beautiful selection of velvet and cotton chairs to suit your interior, and if you’re looking for ideas on how to use them in your home, here are some great tips to get you started.

Maximalist Interiors

Maximalist Interiors

A statement chair is a match made in heaven with maximalist interiors; they command attention and inject positive and dramatic vibes. If you are a proud owner of a maximalist interior, you are not shy of pattern or bold colour, but it may be difficult to choose which statement chair will work best. Try picking out a colour from the piece and then integrate into the rest of the room to create a flowing scheme. Dalston Floretta Blush and Dalston Botany Summer will inject positive pattern and colour.

Minimalist Interior

Just because statement chairs shout print and pattern does not mean they cannot be used in more minimalist interiors! If you prefer a more subtle, neutral, or maybe a Scandi style home, statement chairs can still work.

Try using a chair which adds a contrasting texture to the rest of the design scheme; this will keep the eye entertained and contrasts are key for an interesting room. Adding a small pattern will fit into a minimalist scheme by just adding that touch of colour and restful pattern that the room may need. Have a look at our Clarke and Clarke Soho Papilio Heather chair or Monika Hummingbird chair for a subtle focal point.

Floral Print

Floral Print

Florals give a graceful and romantic result, use as a statement bedroom chair for a quiet, restful look and use this as a starting point to bring other floral patterns into the room through soft furnishings such as cushions, Odette Amelia Blue is a beautiful chintz design that will create a graceful French feel to your room.

If you are looking to make a bigger statement with a floral try Langley La Habana; this could be used as a focal point in a dining room and then colours picked out for accents around the room.

Jungle Print

The tropical trend is here to stay and there is nothing better than bringing a part of the outdoors into your home. Add exotic patterns with the Dalston Passiflora Midnight armchair and use it as a focal point by placing in a sitting room and add plants and greenery throughout the room to bring the scheme together.

Alternatively opt for the more subtle Odette Leopold Pewter Chair in a bedroom as a starting point to bring animal print and contrasting texture into your home; you can then use a similar pattern in other furnishings such as a rug or a throw.

Emma J Shipley

Use the whimsical designs of Emma J Shipley for Clarke and Clarke to bring a talking point into your home. Use as a focal point in a living room by placing it in a prominent position, such as Dalston J Kruger Flame armchair. Pick out a colour and use throughout the room in accessories such as artwork and photo frames. This will give the room a flowing feel, but the statement chair will still be the focal point.

If you are wanting to inject a pop of colour and pattern, use Langley Rousseau Lime; a chair like this is the perfect way to use as a standalone focal piece and you can move from room to room.
