How to incorporate an occasional chair or bench into a bedroom
An occasional chair or bench is an excellent way to add a new style reference, a different texture, to introduce a new colour, or even enhance an existing colour scheme in any room but particularly the bedroom.
It is important to coordinate the style, colour and texture to complement your existing décor. When shopping for an accent chair, it is advisable to choose something versatile which will have a possible place in more than one area of the room – this way your stylish chair will not be limited to one space within the bedroom, prohibiting future rearrangements of furniture.
