Every room needs a comfy statement chair! So today, we're showing you how to take this pretty green arm chair and style it in three different types of rooms. So whether you're trying to add a fun spot to sit in a living room, office, or reading nook, we've got you covered. Take a look!

Living room — In a living room, make a colorful chair the star by keeping the couch neutral and adding in pops of color that tie into the velvet green chair with throw pillows, a rug, and other accessories. Also, for an alternative to a standard coffee table, try two barrel end tables because they allow the flexibility to be kept together or separated and moved around easily.

A Little Corner — Reading nooks or little corners of any room are great to showcase a piece of furniture like this bold velvet chair. Here, it was the focus when styling this corner and all the other furniture pieces and accessories accent the chair. We love keeping a small bench by a reading nook to offer a place for books as well as storage below. It can also double as extra seating when guests are over. Finally, when creating a cozy nook, add texture like the faux fur rug to bring in some softness to the space.

Home Office — For a home office that you might share with a partner or have meetings in, add the statement chair to soften up an office vibe. Since the chair and rug have strong colors in them, we kept everything else pretty neutral in this room.
