The focal point of any one room can range from the color on the walls to a particular piece of accent furnishing. Often understated and frequently overlooked, a solid statement chair can have the ability to elevate even the more tired or lackluster of spaces – especially if it’s one that comes in an untraditional shape or color. We rounded up our favorite, style-focused seats that will surely steal the spotlight in the space they inhabit. See for yourself.

We sure have a thing for mixing and matching dining chairs, and this eclectic set is no exception. Considering bringing the look into your space? Opt for a single statement seat in a bold color contrast (that green!) to keep the look fresh and the space elevated.

This lush, jungle-inspired nook comes with no shortage of greens, natural or not, but we’ve got our eye on the jewel-toned wingback chair, an accent piece in its own right.

This powder-coated seat may be reserved for the outdoors, but we’re all for bringing them in for an unexpected pop of color. We’re picturing this one in front of a mod vanity, paired with a cozy sheepskin!

Erin Fetherston’s flawlessly decorated bedroom is about as serene as they come. The star of the space? The stained wood and leather seat that extends just enough contrast and plenty of style.

We’re still not over the brass and emerald combination, especially when it comes in a luxe velvet finish. Whether the chair be paired with a rustic dining table, or set alone in a whitewashed nook, it’ll surely be the focal point of a room.

We love a good jewel-toned pairing especially when there’s a little blush involved. This structured seat is a juxtaposition of sorts, with its warm tones that offset the contemporary composition.

If it were up to us, we would make it a requirement for all built-in shelves to come paired with a cozy lounge seat, much like this one. Style yours with a lightly-woven throw and delicate cushion for the ideal finish.

Who knew peach and navy made for such a good color combo? It even manages to stand out amidst the saturated tones of this vibrantly decked living room.

Ditch the bulky office chair in lieu of an alternative that combines both form and function. This retro-inspired seat comes cushioned with a cozy sheepskin, resulting in one very comfortable spot.

What’s a boho-chic space sans a seat like this? Appropriately coupled with a lamb-fur throw pillow and shaggy landing pad, this nearly monochromatic space has all the makings of a dreamy nook.

Not all statement seats require a bold color component. This understated yet utterly show-stopping lounge chair is proof. Featuring a monochromatic finish, its streamlined composition, coupled with the brilliant white upholstery, earmarks it as a true style piece.

Inside this cult-favorite LA massage boutique, The Now, comes the epitome of a statement seat. The pared down look features a safari-esque lounge that comes with a complementary cowhide on the floor, a side table, and a vintage hammock reserved for the wall. We’re taking major design cues from this one.
