Home accent furniture can be used to fill in the gaps and provide a finishing touch to your home furnishing. It is not just in your living room that accent pieces will make all the difference, but also in your hall, bedroom and in fact in any room in your house. Here are some ideas to get you started, although you are sure to come up with a few better ones yourself. Curio Cabinets Curio cabinets are excellent pieces of furniture for a hall or living room. They are large enough to be functional but not so large that they take the eye away from your main pieces of furniture - this is what accent pieces should do. They should not be overbearing, be decorative and add some character to a room, while also having a functional part to play. Curio cabinets are not those large display cabinets sometimes referred to as china cabinets, but are smaller, and generally no more than about 3 ft wide and around 12-15 inches deep. A curio cabinet will usually have glazed doors and glass shelves to display curios, collections and incidental ornaments. Most American furniture manufacturers offer curio cabinets of one type or another. A popular design is a corner cabinet, shaped to take up corner space that would otherwise be wasted. Stickley markets a corner cabinet that is 28.5 inches each side which, using Mr. Pythagoras, makes the front 40.3 inches. This has a solid wood cupboard door beneath a glass paned door opening to three display shelves. Cocktail Tables Cocktail tables often double as coffee tables and vice versa, though cocktail versions are often more ornate. Southwood Furniture offers a number of beautiful solid wood cocktail cabinets, professionally designed and carved, with and without shelves below for magazines and so on. If your room is more modern, then a wooden frame holding a solid granite top would look good. Other types of occasional table are used to hold lamps and chess sets, and magazine tables are another form of accent furniture. These incorporate a magazine rack and look really nice - again meeting the requirements of an accent piece - small, decorative and functional! End Tables While not strictly accent furniture, end tables are useful to sit at either end of a sofa or by an armchair in the absence of a coffee table. Sometimes coffee tables are inconvenient when placed in their usual home in front of sofas, and many prefer the convenience of a side table rather than having to continually bend forward to the table, whether for coffee or alcoholic drinks. Accent Tables Unlike the above tables, accent tables have no specific purpose. They come in many forms and can be use for lamps, candles, reed diffusers, chess sets or as the base for a variety of curios and decorative elements. Such tables come in a number of shapes - square, round, octagonal and oval, but they must be small and must have something standing on them, preferably something that can be useful as a conversation piece. Miscellaneous Accent Furniture A traditional wooden rocking chair is a good accent piece, and would look good in any traditionally furnished living room or even in the kitchen. Simply Amish manufactures a beautiful traditional hickory rocker that your great grandmother might have used down south on her verandah on those warm summer evenings. Other accent pieces are usually used in the hall - such as a telephone table and a hat stand or umbrella stand. It is debatable if these could be described as accent furniture since many consider them to be essentials. Remember the definition as being decorative, add character and also be functional. That just about describes a hat stand these days, when few wear hats, but use the pegs for hanging their coats. In fact, you could use just about any small piece of furniture as accent furniture, particularly if it is unusual or provokes comment. Accent pieces should be used to fill these empty spaces that may be left over once you have installed your major items of furniture. It must look good without being too imposing, and either itself be noteworthy or must hold something that invokes curiosity or a discussion. You can find a lot more ideas on accent furniture on the Patterson Furniture store website and their Atlanta showrooms. Patterson offers a wide range of furniture in Atlanta, all made in America by from a number of American furniture manufacturers.
