The Experts Opinion


Regarding the increased demand, here’s what our sofa buyer Eamonn Harrington had to say about accent chairs: “Over the last 12 months, our customers’ demand for unique accent chairs has gone through the roof and is continuing to grow. The accent chair trend is here to stay. I’ve travelled across the world to design and tailor the collection for the Irish household, with a focus on beautiful design, ultra comfort and value for the Harvey Norman customer (prices from €149). Plain colours on the body of the main sofa combined with bright colours on Accent Chairs is how most of us are making this trend work in our homes. The best thing about our Accent Chairs, and indeed many of our sofas, is that a lot of them are completely customisable so you can change the fabric and stitching to what you love. My personal favourite from the collection is the Irish designed, handmade, button back Studio accent chair. The comfort and support of the accent chair is provided by no-sag springs and a sturdy wooden frame. The fabric upholstery also features an opulent stitching design and rounded armrests, ensuring absolute comfort throughout.”

The Irish made ‘Studio’ is a sumptuous accent chair that makes a serious design statement. Opulent designing and a luxurious choice of fabrics turn it into a timeless living room centrepiece. The comfort of this accent chair comes in the form of gel foam backing, setting you up nicely for cosy evenings in. The support of the chair is provided by no-sag springs and a sturdy wooden frame. The fabric upholstery also features an opulent stitching design and rounded armrests, ensuring absolute comfort throughout.

Simply sumptuous, the ‘Holli’ invites comfort and relaxation with its combination of sinkable cushions and tactile upholstery. Expert craftsmanship guarantees years of top-quality lounging thanks to a handmade frame that is screwed, stapled and glued with precision.

Genuine leather upholstery and foam and fibre padding make the ‘Wendy’ a long lasting piece of furniture with just the right balance of comfort, support, shape and style. Unique crossed iron feet add contemporary elegance to the design, along with slimline arms that curve upwards ever so slightly at the tip.


The ‘Kyoto’ tub chair epitomises all things elegant and opulent. A combination of supple fabric, scrolled arms and button detail ignite luxury in the simplest or most sophisticated of rooms. Studs trace the sculptural frame which further accentuate the delicate angle of this decadent piece.

With delectable tufted button upholstery to complement the bronzed studded trim along the arms, the meticulous detail of the ‘Harriot’ makes it a timeless classic. Plush fabric envelops an exquisitely comfortable cushion ensuring you can lounge to your heart’s content while remaining supported with the high back, wings and signature scrolled arms. Darkly stained feet in varying shapes add a lavish finishing touch.
