Accent furniture has long been a supporting player in many homeowner’s furniture designs, but now it’s become a true spotlight and “must have” addition to any savvy home decor plan.

Gone are the days of matching suite’s dominance.  Intriguing designs for today’s modern homes include a wide range of accent furnishings guaranteed to create drama and excitement where there once was none.

If your living room features matching tables, chairs and lamps – divide and conquer.  Why not remove one or two of your tables and replace them with an intriguingly designed accent piece – perhaps a glass topped, iron based table, or a mirrored chest.  You could also consider adding  a single ottoman or accent chair covered in a dramatic animal print to liven up your room’s decor.

A striking difference could be made in your master bedroom, by introducing a sumptuous custom designed padded headboard, or an impressive iron bed.  And, how about breaking up your set of “matchy” night tables, and replacing one with a round-tiered table or painted chest?

In your dining room, simply adding two dramatically upholstered side chairs, in place of two wooden chairs, will make a huge difference in your room’s appeal.
