Top 3 Accent Furniture Pieces & How to Get the Most Out of Them

From decorative pillows to illuminating lights, accent furniture gives your home pizzazz that is uniquely you.

Adora Home has narrowed down the essential home accent pieces to give your home character and laid out some tips on how to utilize them. Use these helpful recommendations from our home furniture design professionals to make your house a home.

1. Let’s Talk Lighting

Floor lamps, suspended lighting, table lamps, and wall mounts. There’s so many options to choose from it can get confusing. Most important to remember is to make your lighting dynamic.

One light fixture in a room won’t do much for light or character. We recommend mixing floor lamps and table lamps. This combines ambient light with functional light to give your space both utility and style.

Stylistically, mix floor and table lamp bases for diversity but always match the shades. This will give your space character while maintaining focus.

2. Choosing a Rug

The rug sets the boundaries of the conversational area in your living room and is an essential accent furniture piece to integrate into your design scheme.

You should pick your area rug before your decorative pillows, comfortable blankets, and other accentuating furnishings. Your rug will be the anchor that holds down the aesthetic principal of the room. Ideally, your rug should at least reach under the front legs of your couch and chairs. This will give the area a welcoming feel with a clear flow.

3. Playful Pillows

They may be called throw pillows but, don’t just throw them together! There’s a simple design principal that can drastically enhance your accent pillow game. For a traditional look, use an even number of pillows. For a modern or eclectic look, use an odd number of pillows. This simple trick will boost the feel of your room tremendously.

Contrast your sofa with interesting patterns on a few pillows then reference the color of your upholstery using a single pillow. You can take this principal to the whole room as well. Use a few large pillows to accentuate an accent chair or artistic painting in the room then add some extra color and character with one or two smaller accent pillows.
