Incorporating a Zebra Accent or Side Chair In Your Home Decor
If you are like me, you love the exotic look and feel of animal prints! I happen to believe that every room in your home can have some animal print incorporated into the decor – regardless of the style.
Zebra Prints as a Neutral
Zebra prints – believe it or not – can be considered a classic and/or neutral print.
Think of a black and white tile floor – beautiful classic style, right.
Zebra prints are just another classic use of black and white but, in a more eccentric, sexy and funky pattern.
Zebra is a classic black and white pattern with a bit of spunk, funk and attitude. The zebra prints of today’s home decorating may also be done in browns and whites while maintaining the iconic zebra shaped print.
Don’t be afraid to incorporate some zebra print in your home decor.
When you start to get scared of the ‘wild’ animal print, think zebra is basically black and white with a twist.
Interior Decorating Tip: An accent chair may also be referred to as a side chair or an occasional chair.
Zebra Side Chair
A great way to incorporate zebra prints into your home decor is by introducing a zebra print side chair – like the one available here. I absolutely LOVE this chair!
A perfect melding of classic styling and modern zebra print. Juxtapositions in design and decor like this make for great conversation pieces.
Some ways to incorporate this fabulous print side chair in your home decor are as a desk chair in your home office, how about as a side chair in your neutral living room, (or maybe you should have 2 of them?).
This chair could also be used as a dining room end chair – head table chair. Or again, get 2 of them and use them at either end of the dining room table paired with white parsons chairs as the table side chairs.
While I absolutely LOVE the zebra print side chair – for both it’s funky and chic look but, especially for it’s versatility in home decor, there are other zebra print chair options which are for more specific purposes.
Zebra Slipper Chair
For those who are looking for an accent chair which offers comfort and takes up little space – both visually and physically – you should consider a slipper chair.
A slipper chair is generally a padded, upholstered chair with no arms. The fact that there are no arms means it is visually smaller. But, in fact, it is actually smaller too. Adding arms to a slipper chair would increase the size about 4-6 inches on each side. Hence, a slipper chair will fit into smaller spaces while still providing comfort seating.
Zebra Print Dining Chairs
For smaller spaces, you may want to opt for some zebra animal print dining side chairs. These are very similar to the larger occasional chair but, smaller and without arms, of course.
Because of their smaller size, they would be great for smaller spaces but, could be used as accent chairs at your dining room head and foot – or again as occasional accent chairs in a small living room.
Don’t rule out this zebra print accent chair as an office chair. Pair this zebra chair with a glass desk, and you will have the chicest office around.
Zebra Print Armchairs
Zebra Print Bar Stools
Do you have a bar? A counter height bar? A regular bar? Do you need some bar stools for that bar? If your bar is lacking some pizzazz, there is no better (or quicker) way than to add some spunk with a couple of zebra print bar stools!
A zebra print bar stool will look fabulous in a rustic setting where maybe you have a wooden bar top. The mix of animal print and rustic will maintain a rustic feel but, it will instantly feel more like an exotic rustic – or eccentric rustic – like you have traveled the world.
The zebra print with black satin finish bar stools are available in both counter height bar stools and the standard 30″ bar stool height.
If you are looking for a more subdued zebra print while still getting that feeling of an animal print, you can look to a bar stool made with a stunning zebra wood seat. Get the zebra pattern without making a big, bold statement at your bar top.
Zebra Print Chairs in Brown and White
If you love the stylized zebra print but prefer warmer tones in your home, look no further. You can add an accent chair such as this one which is done in a zebra styled print but using brown color tones.
This warm toned zebra print bar stool will make a great addition to a neutral home which has beige or tan walls – just like the jungle does?
Grey and White Zebra Print Accent Chairs
For those of you who, again, love a zebra stylized print but find the black and white contrast too stark, you can opt for an accent chair such as this one – done in a soft grey and off white zebra print.
This is a subtle way to add some sass to your room – but let’s just call it subtle sass.
Allow your wild side to come out with some zebra print accents in your home. The key in using zebra animal prints in home decor is to not use too much. For animal prints, less is more.
For those timid decorators, you could try adding an accent pillow or how about a zebra print soap dish in your bathroom.
For those a bit more adventurous (like myself), try adding a zebra print accent chair. These zebra print chairs are perfect for perking up a very neutral decor. No matter what the decor, you will be sure to add some instant pizzazz.
For those who cannot live without animal zebra prints (again, like myself) go for it. If you must have a dining room table filled with zebra chairs, go for it. For myself, as much as I love zebra prints (and do have some in every room of my house), I would not recommend that unless you absolutely LOVE zebra print.
