Once you have your rug, your sofa, and your furniture picked out, there’s only one more piece you need to complete your living room setup: a great accent chair. Now, depending on your taste, an accent chair can mean something very different to you than it does to me. Some people opt for picks purely for aesthetic reasons, with interesting designs and sculptural elements. Others put comfort over everything and invest in the coziest chairs they can find. But one of the most popular types of accent chairs is a leather accent chair. Combining style and comfort, these chairs are made to stand out while also providing durable, comfortable, and easy-to-clean seating anyone can get behind (er, well, sit on top of). Below, we rounded up 10 of the best leather accent chairs on the market today, from eye-catching design finds to cozy recliners and more.
