Using Accent Furniture & Area Rugs throughout the Home
Explore our collection of accent furniture and area rugs and find distinctive options to impart signature style to your home interiors. Accent furniture provides structure for any room in your home, balancing out bigger pieces and helping to establish the style in a space. Area rugs work together with accent furniture to make a room feel complete, enhancing the space with texture, dimension, and visual interest, and defining the living space. Whether your style skews traditional or you prefer a modern farmhouse aesthetic, you'll find suitable pieces for furnishing every room in your home in accent furniture and area rugs at Riverbend Home.
Use Tables and Rugs to Enliven Your Living Room
Accent furniture and area rugs can help create a welcoming, comfortable space in a formal living room or a casual den. Whether the room has hardwood or carpeted floors, use an area rug to define the edges of your seating area and to add warmth and texture to the space. Accent tables add utility, providing a space for placing remotes, magazines, or a cup of coffee; opt for end tables on either side of a sofa, a charming side table next to an armchair, or a console table along an empty wall. Finish with an elegant coffee table that anchors the space. We offer options in iron, wood, rattan, metal, glass, and more
Add Function and Form to Your Dining Areas with Accent Furniture
Consider function as well as form when furnishing your dining room, breakfast nook, or kitchen.
To create a casual eating space at a kitchen island or open countertop, explore our selection of counter, bar, and table stools in styles ranging from traditional to mid-century to modern. A credenza, sideboard, buffet, or other decorative chest or cabinet serves dual purposes in a dining area, offering a secondary focal point and providing ample storage for china or other extra dishes, serving platters, textiles, and more. Beneath a dining table or bar stools, opt for an area rug that suits the style of your space but is durable enough to stand up to spills and resists staining, or choose one with an intricate pattern and rich hues to help hide mishaps.
Use Chairs, Ottomans, and Bookshelves to Elevate Your Bedroom to a Retreat
Elevate your bedroom from a space for sleeping to a room made for resting, relaxing, and recharging. Add a chair and a small side table to create a cozy reading nook, or place a bench, ottoman, or stool at the foot of your bed to provide additional seating or storage. In a bedroom with a hardwood floor, an area rug arranged beneath the bed frame provides a soft landing spot for your feet and helps knock the chill off the floor in the winter. For optimal coziness, choose a size that will extend at least two feet beyond the bed on each side. Fill large, empty walls with bookshelves that add height to the room's aesthetic, display your favorite reads, and increase storage space.
Furnish Your Home's Functional Spaces
Incorporate accent furniture and area rugs throughout your home to add interest to overlooked spaces. Choose the perfect area rug for your foyer to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere for guests when they enter. Fill the space on a stairway landing with a functional and decorative chest or cabinet. Place a long, narrow accent table against a wall in your entryway to create a convenient drop zone for keys and mail. Position a bench strategically by the back door or in the mudroom as a handy spot to put on or remove shoes; slip bins or baskets underneath for easy access and attractive, out-of-sight storage.
