Oversized accent chairs can play both fashionable and functional roles in any seating area. With their large size, these chairs can visually balance a large sofa or sectional or make grand, expansive rooms feel more intimate. Their generous proportions also provide comfortable seating and can even allow two people to cuddle up comfortably. Hawkins Woodshop makes it simple to reap all of the benefits of oversized accent chairs with this diverse selection of pieces that you can browse and buy online. Follow these steps to narrow down the options and choose the ideal piece:
Choose the right upholstery. Cotton and twill oversized accent chairs can hold up to heavy use and have a pleasant texture to ensure comfort. For chairs that will be used less frequently, consider a luxurious fabric like velvet, linen, or chenille. Genuine leather and faux leather also have a sumptuous feel but are very simple to clean. Polyester and polyester-blends will remain vivid in areas that are exposed to intense sunlight.
Consider frame construction. For oversized accent chairs that can hold up to years of daily use, focus on pieces that feature kiln-dried hardwood frames. Ones with reinforced corner blocked joints or screwed, glued, or doweled joints will be the absolute sturdiest. Plywood and particleboard frames are a more economical choice.
Compare support. The amount of support provided by oversized accent chairs is important, especially if two people will sit in the chair at once. Eight-way, hand-tied seats are comfortable and responsive, while seats with sinuous springs are slightly softer. Webbing suspension keeps the cost of seats low and gives chairs less support.
