The Best Living Room & Accent Chairs Under $200
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 the rest of the time. The good news for decorators on a tight budget is that there are plenty of designs out there that meet both requirements—and will set you back less than $200. Plus, with Memorial Day this weekend most of these picks are even further discounted, so now is the time to buy. Here are 10 of our favorites.
Not exactly a lounge chair, but it looks comfortable enough for shorter periods of time—and certainly very pretty.
A classy shape that feels distinctly different from Urban’s typical boho offerings, this chair come in three neutral but distinct colors, at a really nice price.
A classic mid-century modern silhouette, it manages to still be comfy with a small footprint.
Another MCM piece, the slightly reclining back makes it feel a bit more relaxed and cozy, while the tufting gives the classic modern shape a bit of feminine flair.
Made to look like natural woven fibers, this brings the tropical trend indoors. And, in case you haven’t heard: rattan is very much having a moment.
One of World Market’s “Always A Deal” items, these chairs are value-driven and low-priced every day. Not that any guests visiting will guess that when they see this distinctive chair.
Because metal legs mean less upholstery, MCM pieces are often easy to find at low prices. But if you want something more farmhouse, this buffalo plaid chair is both unexpected and classic.
Grab this bent wood chair for an Eames-ish look at an everyday price.
I love the quirky shape that the wire legs and arms give this piece—it’s almost like a cartoon illustration of a chair.
A very affordable take on a Bertoia diamond chair, for those with a big design appetite and a small budget.
