If you’re looking to give your living room a quick facelift but don’t want to commit the requisite time for a creative paint job or money for a luxe sofa, there is a convenient alternative in sight: accent chairs. Aside from making for an easy way to infuse your space with color and bold style, their generally lower price point will allow you to get more experimental and try out a trend or design you might be hesitant to test on a $1,000 couch. And one of the most affordable places to indulge your inner HGTV host? Walmart—which we already know as the purveyor of chic design pieces.

Below, the accent chairs your living room needs, regardless of your style or space.

If you’ve been looking for the perfect, 2018-approved way to decorate with leather, which won’t make your home resemble the study of an elderly gentleman, consider this chair. Bright white leather (it’s faux!) balances out a sleek wooden frame. It’ll add contrast to your living room, working equally well with minimalist neutrals and as a calming presence against a more maximalist backdrop.

Somewhere between simple Scandi style and mid-century edge sits this oak wood armchair. Intricate woven detailing lends an almost spider web-like quality, elevating it from a simple wooden chair to a design moment with a capital M. And while it makes a great filler for an empty living room nook, we can also see it working well as a desk chair or even as seating for your dinner table. Its versatility is this chair’s main selling point.

If 1970s style is on the rebound, consider this set of chairs your in into the trend. A retro frame, coupled with the unmistaken avocado green hue certainly makes this chair stand out. Pick up two for just under $125 and craft a little sitting nook out of any corner in your home.

Ever look at a pair of jeans and say, “I wish I could get these in the form of a chair?” Consider your (oddly specific) design wish granted: This simple yet sophisticated chair almost looks like it’s crafted out of denim. But considering that material is hardly one you want to sink into—there’s a reason people lounge around in pajamas, not jeans—the fact that it’s actually linen makes this piece all the more desirable.  

This cool piece actually comes in two colors: a deep charcoal gray and a pale stone shade, and to be quite honest we can’t pick which one we like better. What we know for sure is, its uniquely mid-century style and curved design make it ideal for the decorator on the hunt for a living room addition that’s anything but cookie-cutter.

If red sofas are the living room design statement of the moment but you can’t afford a pricey new couch, this comfy armchair is a great stand-in. Bright tomato red will bring an instant cheery look to your space, livening it up with a bold punch of color without you having to add so much as an accent wall or throw pillow.

We know, we know: Doling out almost $500 for a chair isn’t exactly the budget-friendly update previously advertised. But, for those interested in an unashamedly opulent look with a bit more cash to spare, this fuschia velvet chair might just be the over-the-top, luxe addition to your living room you’ve been searching for. Hot pink is super trendy right now—and if you’ve been struggling to figure out how you can incorporate this tricky hue at home, this cool piece is a great way to dip your toe into this fashion-approved shade.
