A good accent chair can completely transform your space. Not only do they offer additional seating, but they can also add balance and style to any room. Whether you're in desperate need of additional seating or just need to fill an awkward corner, an accent chair will provide the solution you're looking for.

Although a traditional style, the wingback has been reimagined to fit a more contemporary setting by many designers.

If you want to kick your feet back and relax, then a recliner is the chair for you. Recliners are well known for their comfort, which has given them a reputation for being unfashionable, but today there are plenty of options that don't sacrifice style of comfort, like the Pep Talk hi-leg recliner:
CHAIR AND A HALF
The chair and a half is a must for anyone who likes to relax with a bowl of popcorn by their side and no one around to share it with. These are larger than a typical chair, but smaller than a loveseat, making them perfectly spacious. Although known for their comfort, you can easily give it a more tailored look if you opt for a tight back and seat in a more traditional fabric.
Originally called "the comfortable armchair", club chairs are a classic feature in design with French influence. Club chairs have extra deep seats and a roomy interior, perfect for curling up with a book or in a conversational setting. The Truscott is a classic example of the club chair, plus it comes in your choice of dozens of fabrics!
Occasional chairs are, literally, chairs that are used occasionally. They're typically on the smaller side, making them ideal for smaller rooms and easy to move around your home. Occasional chairs add style with decorative fabrics, like the Mallory accent chair, pictured here:
