Buying Guide

Place an accent Italian armchair in a spot that draws the eye, creates a statement, or adds drama to a room. Also, determine how much functionality you want from your chair or if it is to be more of a decorative element.

To make a statement with your accent chair, consider placing it in an entry hall or directly opposite a doorway, so all who enter will see it first. You can also create an inviting reading or artistic nook anywhere in your house by combining an Italian armchair, a side table, and a reading lamp in a cozy corner.

For those accent Italian armchairs with a tub or barrel shape, place them in areas to soften up straight lines, such as in bedrooms, living rooms, or dining areas.

Italian armchairs can dress up a room or add flair to functional space, like an office. The key is to match them up in some way with the other decor, such as a similar color, texture, or design style.

Italian armchairs are classic pieces that match modern decor style if you choose to limit your color palette and carefully balance the vintage and modern elements of your aesthetic.

When you think of Italian design, you may think of ornate embellishments and rounded edges. But Italian design is also about timelessness and classic simplicity. If you are blending modern and more elaborate Baroque or traditional Italian elements, stick to a pared-down color palette, using shades of blue or a strictly black-and-white color scheme.

If you’re going for a more boho-chíc look, try grouping a traditional Italian armchair with other embellished pieces.
