Finding the Right seating for You

With entire areas of our homes reserved for “sitting rooms,” the value of quality antique and vintage seating cannot be overstated.

Fortunately, the design of side chairs, armchairs and other lounge furniture — since what were, quite literally, the early perches of our ancestors — has evolved considerably.

Among the earliest standard seating furniture were stools. Egyptian stools, for example, designed for one person with no seat back, were x-shaped and typically folded to be tucked away. These rudimentary chairs informed the design of Greek and Roman stools, all of which were a long way from Sori Yanagi's Butterfly stool or Alvar Aalto's Stool 60. In the 18th century and earlier, seats with backs and armrests were largely reserved for high nobility.

The seating of today is more inclusive but the style and placement of chairs can still make a statement. Antique desk chairs and armchairs designed in the style of Louis XV, which eventually included painted furniture and were often made of rare woods, feature prominently curved legs as well as Chinese themes and varied ornaments. Much like the thrones of fairy tales and the regency, elegant lounges crafted in the Louis XV style convey wealth and prestige. In the kitchen, the dining chair placed at the head of the table is typically reserved for the head of the household or a revered guest.

Of course, with luxurious vintage or antique furnishings, every chair can seem like the best seat in the house. Whether your preference is stretching out on a plush sofa, such as the Serpentine, designed by Vladimir Kagan, or cozying up in a vintage wingback chair, there is likely to be a comfy classic or contemporary gem for you on 1stDibs.

With respect to the latest obsessions in design, cane seating has been cropping up everywhere, from sleek armchairs to lounge chairs, while bouclé fabric, a staple of modern furniture design, can be seen in mid-century modern, Scandinavian modern and Hollywood Regency furniture styles.

Admirers of the sophisticated craftsmanship and dark woods frequently associated with mid-century modern seating can find timeless furnishings in our expansive collection of lounge chairs, dining chairs and other items — whether they’re vintage editions or alluring official reproductions of iconic designs from the likes of Hans Wegner or from Charles and Ray Eames. Shop our inventory of Egg chairs, designed in 1958 by Arne Jacobsen, the Florence Knoll lounge chair and more.

No matter your style, the collection of unique chairs, sofas and other seating on 1stDibs is surely worthy of a standing ovation.

Questions About Accent Chair Vintage Chair
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A slipper chair is a chair that sits low to the ground and has no arms. They’re traditionally used as accent pieces or additional seating options.

  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 12, 2021
    Accent chairs are single-seat chairs that are used not only as an additional seating space, but also to add visual interest to a room. They are designed to be a focal point in a room — perhaps the color of the upholstery is offbeat or unconventional, perhaps the frame is especially ornate. These chairs are seating pieces that have a role beyond just their basic function. Find a collection of antique and vintage accent chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 5, 2023
    Accent chairs are sometimes called occasional chairs. However, accent chair is also a commonly used name. People may also describe accent chairs by their type. For example, an accent chair with wings on either side of the backrest is a wingback chair, while a slipper chair is a chair without arms. On 1stDibs, shop a collection of accent chairs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 5, 2023
    An accent chair is called that because its purpose is to stand out in a space and add interest to a room. As a verb, accent means to emphasize something, and an accent chair emphasizes a particular spot in a room by drawing the eye to it. Shop a collection of accent chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertDecember 12, 2023
    Although opinions vary, most people prefer that their accent chairs are comfortable.

    A bouclé accent chair is a chair that features a specific type of upholstery called bouclé. It is a combination of looped and woven wool that has a soft, cozy feel.

An accent chair may also be positioned in front of a dressing table or desk in a bedroom. Shop a wide range of accent chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 27, 2023
    Whether an armchair is an accent chair varies from piece to piece. Any chair with arms is an armchair, while an accent chair is a decorative chair typically used in a seating area. Armchairs include dining chairs with arms as well as accent chairs, and some accent chairs don't have arms at all. Only a decorative seating area chair with arms can be called both an armchair and an accent chair. Shop a large collection of chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 6, 2023
    The difference between an accent chair and a dining chair comes down to function and design. An accent chair usually goes in a seating area, and makers craft them with comfort in mind. As a result, most accent chairs feature cushioning and upholstery and are characterized by generous proportions. The purpose of a dining chair is to provide a place to sit while enjoying a meal. Usually, dining chairs are lighter and smaller than accent chairs for easy maneuvering. While they may have padded seats and backrests, dining chairs generally aren't as abundantly cushioned as accent chairs. Explore a large selection of chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 5, 2023
    The difference between a lounge chair and an accent chair pertains to purpose. Typically, a lounge chair is wider and deeper than an accent chair and tends to have a thicker cushion. These stylistic differences owe to the fact that lounge chairs are meant to provide luxurious, comfortable seating for long periods of time, while accent chairs are more often intended to add visual appeal to a living room. On 1stDibs, shop a collection of living room chairs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    The difference between an occasional chair and an accent chair comes down to usage. An occasional chair is a decorative chair that is placed in a room for its look rather than to function as an everyday seating solution. As a result, occasional chairs may be used infrequently. An accent chair is any decorative chair placed in a seating area. They can be used only occasionally or on a daily basis. Explore a wide variety of chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    The difference between an armchair and an accent chair comes down to the specificity of the terms. An accent chair is any decorative chair designed to provide comfortable seating in living rooms and other spaces (armchairs can be accent chairs). An armchair is merely any chair that has armrests. Many different styles of armchairs have been made over the years. Find a wide range of armchairs and accent chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    You can match sofas and accent chairs in a few different ways. One option is to choose sofas and chairs in similar solid colors. Alternatively, you can select a sofa in the primary color of your palette and accent chairs in the secondary hue. Another approach is to pair a patterned sofa with solid-colored accent chairs or vice versa. Find a large selection of sofas and accent chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    No, your accent chair doesn't have to match your sofa, but many people choose to coordinate them. This means you don't have to purchase matching chairs with your sofa or choose chairs in identical upholstery. Accent chairs and sofas can coordinate if they show off similar colors or materials, giving you the freedom to mix and match. Explore a variety of accent chairs and sofas on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    A good size for an accent chair is around 35 inches in overall height with a seat height of 16 inches. However, you can find taller and shorter chairs. The lengths and widths of accent chairs vary based on their design.

On 1stDibs, explore a large selection of accent chairs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 8, 2023

  • 1stDibs ExpertJanuary 23, 2024
    A good height for an accent chair is usually around 35 inches overall, with a seat height of 16 inches. However, you should consider the scale of the rest of your furniture when selecting chairs.

  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 8, 2023
    Yes, it's okay to have just one accent chair. There are no rules when decorating a living room, so you're free to place one accent chair along with a loveseat and/or sofa in your seating area.
