10 Cool Accent Chairs

There’s something endlessly comforting about a great reading chair.  The sense that others before us have sat in that very space, embarking on literary adventures of their own and perhaps nodding off just like we’re wont to do ourselves lends a sense of continuity to an otherwise simple — modern, even — piece of furniture.  Today’s roundup of cool accent chairs gives a nod to the days of yore, with a few mid-century modern inspired pieces and some easy transitional chairs as well.  Whether they’re adding a pop of color to a room or simply providing a moment of respite every now and then, their charm begs us to sit a spell, maybe just for a chapter or two, and relax.
