Creating Timeless Living Interiors

Designer: Katie Hodges  Photographer: Haris Kenjar

I feel a living room isn’t quite complete without at least one armchair strategically placed to create an extra area of interest, such as a cosy reading nook in a corner or, if space allows, paired adjacent to the sofa to create a communal area that encourages the flow of conversation. A-frame accent chairs are currently my favourite type of style to incorporate into a room refresh. I’ve picked out 8 of my favourite A-frames that will blend in seamlessly with a minimal scandinavian scheme, a colourful mid-century modern style, or add an modern edge to a classic scheme. They’re almost like a sculptural feature in the room that hold their own visually as well as holding you comfortably.
