Beautiful from every angle, accent chairs are both functional and decorative, so a lot of thought goes into choosing the right chair for the right space. Some of our most popular modern–inspired chair designs are outlined in the quick chair guide below:
At Room & Board, the arm chair's classic design has been updated for modern living and comes in a range of styles and sizes. From minimalist club chairs to the plushest tufted side chair, arm chairs are a great way to complement a room’s primary color scheme or add contrast with an unexpected fabric pattern or texture.
Create your own comfortable reading corner with one of Room & Board’s modern lounge chairs. The distinctive slanted design features a roomy, comfortable seat that offers a perfect place to stretch out and lounge, especially when paired with an ottoman.
Enjoy modern, movable comfort in your living room or home office with a swivel chair. Available in a wide range of leather and fabric options, modern swivel accent chairs add 360-degree style to any open space.
Designed without any buttons or levers to spoil the look, Room & Board’s modern recliners invite you to lean back and relax in minimalist style.
Consider a modern chair and a half to relax in style. One person can spread out or two people can get cozy in these oversized chairs. Some are even twin sleeper chairs or include an ottoman that opens like a trundle.
Simple and classic, the barrel chair is a modern version of the classic tub chair. Featuring a smooth-gliding swivel, sleek curves and a compact design, the modern barrel chair is an inviting seating option that looks great in pairs.
Made from wood with contoured seats and angles crafted to fit the body, every modern wood lounge chair from Room & Board is thoughtfully crafted. Perfect as a sturdy side chair, Room & Board’s range of modern wood furniture offers many roomy spots to rest.
