The Best Sources for Neutral Accent Chairs

Home Blog Posts, Interiors, Living Room, Office, Our HomeAnneke McConnell

First off, thanks for reading through my last blog post on New Beginnings.  It can be a little scary to put yourself out there in such a personal way, but I'm striving to be more transparent on the blog.  As soon as I'm done here, I'm off to get my workout in!

With that said, something I've been wanting to do for a loooooonnnnnnggggg time is kind of a weekly Life Talk series like yesterday that is basically video with snippets of, well, "Life Talk"!  

Honestly, I feel like I've put this off for quite sometime because I don't ever want to come across as a "know it all" or "oh so wise".  I just want to help people who may be going through some things I've experienced or people I've worked with one-on-one in the "Life Coaching" space, and share my thoughts and ideas.  I'm not perfect!  

The first one is set to go live within the next few weeks and full blown once the kids start school in the Fall. I can't wait!!!

Ok, so moving onto to today's topic - CHAIRS!  I love me a good tufted or slipcovered comfy chair! And a neutral one at that. We live in them here at our beach house.

After years of researching and decorating, I've learned a thing or two about where to find the best to get that coastal modern farmhouse kind of style I love so much and live by. ;-)

They move around often in our home (the advantage of accent chairs), but here you can see my favorite chair ever front and center when I did a whitewash makeover on our fireplace stone. We've had these comfy tufted chairs for about 4+ years and they are literally timeless - I can still snuggle with a kiddo to read a book together. :-)

Many of you that follow along on Instagram, have asked frequently about the chairs over time, so I hope this roundup of sources helps speed up your search for that perfect neutral chair.  I personally lean toward either tufted or slipcovered (and more toward slipcovers since moving to the beach house).  There are a few "splurges" listed below, but most of the chairs are under $400. 

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 / 16 / 17 / 18 / 19

When trying to decide what chair to go with for your home, the #1 most important factor is the measurements! Always make sure to measure your space and consider doorway openings.  Most chairs arrive with the legs detached so that helps, but still be aware of that.

Other than that, it is a personal preference for exact color, fabric, and details like tufting, skirting, the color of the legs, nailhead trim, etc.  

I'd love to know if you find these kind of blog posts helpful and if you end up going with one of these for your home!

***Edited to add.  JUST spotted this stunner for only $263! If this is a style you love, you can find it HERE.


Have a beautiful day friends!
