A home is really composed of a whole bunch of things: Wine bottles, books, children's keepsakes, family photos, movies, vacation memorabilia, lamps, bookends ... you name it. With so many odds and ends making up the bulk of our possessions, it's important to have the right accent furniture to store and showcase it all. From chairs to barstools and wooden trunks, accent furniture is just as diverse as the collection of stuff you have in your home.
Accent chairs make the perfect addition to any living room, bedroom or kitchen; after all, you can never have enough seating. Ottomans pair great with any sofa and couch combo, as they offer a place to put your feet. And what's a kitchen without a high-quality set of barstools for guests to lounge on?
Just as important as seating is storage, and bookshelves are a crucial piece of furniture in every home. They're not just for stashing your Shakespeare collection, however - bookshelves are also ideal for displaying keepsakes, small plants and any extra trinkets you may have in your kitchen. Storage trunks can be used for anything you'd like, but they're particularly popular for memorabilia. Stash your children's artwork over the years, and pull it out every time you'd like to reflect on their growth.
Storage and display are just as important for the items that make us feel a little classy, so be sure to set up a jewelry armoire for your favorite necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Accent furniture also encompasses electric fireplaces, shelving units and end tables. Truth be told, any extra piece of furniture you use around the home is included in this category - and you're sure to find a piece that fits your style and budget!
