You may not be willing to shell out as much money for accent chairs as you would for say, a couch, but you still want them to be comfortable enough to sit on when your friends come over, and beautiful enough for you to look at all the rest of the time. The good news for decorators on a little budget is that there are plenty of designs out there that meet both requirements—and will set you back less than $200. Here are 12 of our favorites.
Not exactly a lounge chair, but it look comfortable enough for short periods of time—and certainly very pretty.
This delicate shape would be perfect for an accent chair in a small space.
Like its namesake, this chair has a classic look and will go with just about anything.
Big mid-century style at a little price.
The shape says mid-century; the button-tufting says well-behaved traditional.
An interesting shape and cheerful colors make this one a clear winner.
Velvet always feels so luxurious, and this pool blue is especially nice. The shape is modern, but the nailhead detail along the back means this would blend nicely into a more traditional space, too.
If comfort is your main object, this is probably your best bet out of the bunch. (And it's not bad-looking, either.)
Bent wood for an Eames-ish look at an everyman price.
I love the quirky shape that the wire legs and arms give this, almost like a cartoon illustration of a chair.
