Est. Reading Time: 5 Mins

When trying to find an individual seat option for a living room, some people tend to go for either a reclining chair or an accent chair.

According to Zeina Badawi, an interior designer at La-Z-Boy Kanata, “Accent chairs bring a room together with new colours that help rejuvenate your living room’s colour palette.”

Essentially, accent chairs act as the cherry on top of your living room seating, turning heads and making your guests say, “Your living room looks really nice!”

At la-Z-Boy, we sell a variety of stationary and swivel accent chairs for people to choose from. While we’ve already made a list of our best-selling swivel accent chairs, what do our stationary accent chairs hold?

This article will detail our top 5 stationary accent chairs at La-Z-Boy Ottawa & Kingston, as well as some honourable mentions.

What is an Accent Chair?

Before we dive into our list, it is important to define exactly what an accent chair is. An accent chair is a furniture piece that catches the attention of anyone that enters the room.

Regarding the selection of accent chairs at La-Z-Boy, stationary chairs are not the only options customers use as accent pieces. Zeina states that recliners can be accent chairs if they have a more distinct look than the other furniture in the room. 

New call-to-action

With a uniquely coloured or patterned upholstery, you can use several different types of La-Z-Boy chairs as an accent chair:  

“As long as they stand out and they have a different colour of leather or fabric, they can also be considered accent chairs,” Zeina says.

What is a Stationary Accent Chair?

For the purposes of this article, we will be focusing on stationary accent chairs. Stationary means that these chairs are immobile;  they remain in a fixed position without the ability to recline, swivel, rock, or glide.

Stationary accent chairs tend to have a more structured and tailored-looking silhouette giving off a more formal appearance. 

For more information, take a look at our article comparing Stationary vs. Reclining Furniture at La-Z-Boy.

With that, below are 5 of our best-selling stationary accent chairs sold at La-Z-Boy Ottawa & Kingston.

Top 5 Stationary Accent Chairs at La-Z-Boy

1. The Marietta Accent Chair

Marietta Accent Chair

The first top-selling stationary accent chair on our list is the Marietta Chair. “Gorgeous from every angle,” according to Zeina, its elegant silhouette boasts a curved back and low, subtly flared arms accented with crisp pleats

Welt trim traces Marietta’s graceful lines, while a tight diamond-tufted back adds to its classically tailored look. Tapered wood legs extend Marietta’s tall silhouette and provide a slim finishing touch. 

Zeina says that this is one of her favourite chairs at La-Z-Boy because it has “very elegant elements to it and it’s a great size for anyone with an average height.”

Although this accent chair might have a tall silhouette, it actually comfortably seats those with a height of 5’3” and under

Zeina says that the Marietta looks great with a leather cover and solid patterns and that the style is paired with other sofas at La-Z-Boy.

2. The Allegra Accent Chair

Allegra Accent Chair

The next stationary accent chair is the popular Allegra chair. The Allegra Stationary Chair combines a streamlined look with subtle details to complement today’s casual decor. 

It features an inviting box seat, welt trim, slightly flared arms, and decorative tapered wood legs. A solid foam back and ComfortCore® cushion provide optimum support for a long or short sit. 

Zeina says that two Allegra chairs can also work well together in one room. “This is only if you have the space for two chairs and a sofa,” she says.

She also says that this accent chair is very cubic in shape and has a lot of elements that make it stand out as a modern furniture piece. Bold patterns compliment this accent chair really well, which also makes it versatile in its look.

The Allegra is also available as a swivel chair, a swivel gliding chair, and a matching ottoman. You can learn more about Allegra Accent Chair by checking out this article.


3. The Draper Accent Chair

This stationary chair is unique on this list because it is the only leather exclusive furniture item, which can create a bold statement in a room.  Featuring rich leather, a t-shaped cushion, angular, modern arms and attached blown fiber back with lumbar cushion, the Draper will drape your room in comfort and style!

Zeina also mentions that the Draper is similar to the Marietta due to its “openness” and because it is a regular-sized chair.

The Draper is also available as a loveseat, a sofa, a sectional and a matching ottoman. You can learn more about the Draper Furniture Family with this article.

4. The Dora Accent Chair

Dora Accent Chair

The Dora Chair is another comfortable and casual-styled chair that La-Z-Boy has to offer. Updated with a slim silhouette, the Dora is versatile and complements just about any decor. Zeina says, “the Dora can fit lots of different looks like country or modern decor.”

This stationary accent chair features an inviting box seat, chic, tapered wedge arms, welt trim detail, and decorative wood legs. A solid foam back and Premiere Construction seat cushions provide comfort and support for a long or short sit.

The Dora can also look good as a pair or alone, according to Zeina. She also says that its higher back is similar to the Allegra chair, with Dora’s back slightly higher.

The Dora is also available as a swivel chair, a swivel gliding chair, a low-leg recliner, and a matching ottoman.


5. The Natalie Accent Chair

stationary accent chairLast but not least is the Natalie Chair, which, according to Zeina, is “a really nice small accent chair.” Showcasing a cool and sophisticated look, as the name suggests, Jazz is a great choice for rooms with smaller spaces.

Perched high on slender legs, the slightly rounded shelter back and gently rolled arms create a welcoming silhouette.

According to Zeina, the Natalie Chair has “a bit of an easy-going feel. It is also one of the smallest chairs we offer at La-Z-Boy.” However, she also says that with the right upholstery cover, the Natalie can jazz up any space to your liking!

The Natalie is also available as a loveseat, a sofa and a matching ottoman. You can learn more about the Natalie Furniture Family by checking out this article.


6. The Maeve Accent Chair - Honourable Mention

Additionally, Zeina also mentions the Maeve Chair as an honourable mention for a great stationary accent chair for any home.

This comfortably casual chair is the latest additions in our designer's choice selection of stationary accent chairs. The Maeve features a leather or fabric appearance that includes interesting and unique accents that can please most mid-century modern homes.

Zeina also says that it has a blown fiber loose back, which can be good if someone wants to change the back of the cushion. The Maeve is also available as a swivel chair and a matching ottoman.
