Their new denim collection is inspired by our favorite pair of jeans. Made with the finest Egyptian cotton, they are made to look like woven denim, they are soft to the touch, not stiff, and they are light weight. They are a must for your bed!

Friends! How many of you have searched for the perfect mid century modern accent chair but you haven’t wanted to spend your entire bank account? We’ve all been there. We have this idea of the perfect chair and then we find something at a high price point only to have our dreams smashed. Accent chairs can be tough to find even beyond the budget issue. You don’t want something that is going to match your sofa perfectly but you want it to compliment it. You also want something comfortable that isn’t going to scare off guests. When buying an accent chair, ask yourself these three things-
What’s it’s function? Consider the anticipated function. The chair size should be scaled to the size of the room. Remember that it will need space for circulation around it.
What’s it’s comfort level? Think about the nature of use of the chair as occasional seating during social gatherings or extended seating for television viewing or reading. Accent chairs can also double-up to serve multiple purposes.
What’s it’s style? Accent chair furniture, creates interest in the room decor through variation and design. While it shouldn’t be matchy matchy with the room design and may even contrast with it, it should seem at home in the setting.
Now that you’ve thought about it’s function, comfort level and style, you can now do the fun part, shopping! We’ve gathered our 30 favorite mid century modern accent chairs for under $500.
