A room isn’t complete without accent chairs. Serving both to tie the space together and give you and your guests somewhere to cozy up, accent chairs are as fun to style as they are to sit on (hello, velvet armchairs in regal jewel-toned hues that look like they were borrowed from the set of Bridgerton).

From sophisticated wingback chairs to leather lounge chairs, here are the best accent chairs to shop for any room in your home.
