Cue our favorite little pop of color: the orange accent chair.

How should I style an orange accent chair?

Vibrant and cheerful, orange accent chairs naturally command attention. However, Artem Kropovinsky advises that ‘they should be balanced with neutral tones and natural materials,’ this way, the orange ‘stands out without taking control of the overall space.' 

And for a personal tip: don't hesitate to incorporate other sunny colors, such as yellow — albeit sparingly. When combined with orange, small accents like table decor can create an eternally summery look that is guaranteed to uplift your mood and the furniture around you.
