Fashion meets Function. Not only are occasional chairs a great way to make a statement, they also serve a practical purpose- additional seating! In a family room, swivel chairs are an ideal way to take the focal point away from the television and create a space for conversation.

A visual break. Open concept layouts have become extremely popular, however it can create a bit of difficulty when it comes to creating division between different spaces in your home. Accent chairs can be a great visual division between a dining and a living space while still serving a purpose!
