1. Duhome Modern Accent Velvet Chair
Top-rated: 4,369 ratings
|Color||Black Velvet/Gold Base|
|Size||19.6D x 33W x 19.6H Inch|
|Percent of 5 star reviews||84%|
Helpful review: “Got this as a gift and it came quickly. it was super easy to assemble, took less than 20mins by myself. the cushion was soft and there was no chemical smell.”
Trending review: “This took me less than 15 min to assemble! It’s just as described but I would recommend buying a pillow for your back in case you sit up super straight like I do!
I only have two cons: One is that all the screws aren’t gold – only one is which goes in the bottom of the chair but if you’d paint one why not paint them all but it’s not that serious. The other con is that the gold legs can be scratched by other sharp objects..
When I was assembling the legs, the paint chipped a little around the base. If this was to happen it’s an easy fix but it should have some protective layer on it already (my thoughts though) — get some gold spray paint.
I would definitely buy again if the other colors were the same $99 bucks I paid.
The back portion of the chair will not come to your shoulders more so the middle of your back, but like I said get a pillow for additional support. It’s super comfy and the color is vibrant! I love it!”
Most recent review: “It matched my decor really well but I need a second one. Was easy to put together and only took about 10 minutes. Is sturdy and the legs were more of a dark champagne gold color. You will love it. Came in a lightweight box. No tools required except the Allen wrench that it came with.”
2. HollyHOME Modern Fabric Large Lazy Chair
Top-rated: 4,554 ratings

Highlight: This lazy chair uses high-quality soft skin-friendly fabric to create a comfortable experience, allowing you to fully relax and rest after hard work and study. It can be used in various places such as living room, bedroom, garden, balcony, office, dormitory, etc.
Trending review: “Perfect as shown coloration, easy to assemble, comfortable, and so soft! It’s the perfect size and height for my desk, as I spend a lot of time gaming, reading, and doing crafts there.
Extra padding on the butt and neck area make it very comfortable for sitting long periods. The material seems durable and very plush!–Samantha
Helpful review: “The chair easily assembled (74 years old) and sat in my smaller bedroom which serves as a library/computer room for months. One night, I decided to turn the computer screen and watch a video sitting in my chair pampered with a matching footstool.
I also ordered a small pillow which fits neatly into the lumbar region of the chair for further comfort. Well…I’m going to have to stop using this chair.
The chair is so comfortable that I fall asleep during the videos and wake up an hour later. If I try to read, I incur the same result. I read for an hour and wake up another hour later. Or else I just need a great deal more sleep than I imagine.
In any case, use at your own risk if you want to stay awake!!”
Most recent review: “I absolutely love this chair! Extremely comfortable. I have fallen asleep in it many night’s watching television or reading.”
3. ZINUS – Aidan Sling Accent Chair
Top-rated: 388 Ratings
Highlight: Crafted with a sharp, modern silhouette and comfort that can’t be beat, the Aidan Sling Chair checks every box for a stylish and comfy accent piece in your living room, bedroom, office, or reading nook
Helpful review: “After reading a few other reviews that said this was difficult to assemble, I was a little nervous for this chair to arrive but it honestly couldn’t have been easier. While the directions weren’t the clearest, it was simple to match the letters on one set to the other and insert screws and I assembled this by myself within 20 minutes.
The chair is incredibly comfortable and has a nice neutral but modern look which is what I was going for. Per the instructions, I did let the pillows air out for about 48 hours after unpacking them to maximize their fluffiness and was pleased with how much they plumped up. My only two (slight) complaints are that this chair is really low to the ground and is difficult for my tall husband to get into and that the metal arms are a little uncomfortable but other than that, I’m very pleased with this purchase.”– Amy A.
Reassuring review: “I had very low expectations of this chair. I thought for sure it would be a return item. This was my 3rd attempt and finding a living room chair that was neutral enough to blend in with my living room which is neutral boho, and also a chair that was comfy. This chair has become the most used piece of furniture in the house. It is very neutral and very comfortable. We absolutely love it. The assembly was an absolute pain. The numbers on the parts of the instructions were not the same as the stickers that were on the pieces. I’ve seen this before with Zinus products so we weren’t surprised. This really is a great chair though. It definitely is bigger than what it appears on the description. Make to to measure if going in a tight space.”– bobbysgirl
4. Lifestyle Solutions – Harrington Armchair for Reading
Top-rated: 315 Ratings
Highlight: Chic and minimalist, this chair’s button tufted back and tapered square faux wooden legs add to its sleek profile.
Helpful review: “I’m very happy with the set I bought. I bought a matching 3-seater, 2-seater, & 1-seater for a black velvet living room set. Each comes in a box with a base, back, two sides and two optional wings, all of which interlock, plus four screw-on square legs. No detachable cushions. Backrest padding is plush. Base is similar to the monoform seat in a vintage car or truck with a layer of padding over heavy wire mesh. Armrests are not sturdy enough to sit on top of or fall against, only as armrests, not a jungle gym. (Optional) Wings attach to the backrest above the armrest. Interlocking Brackets are brass already screwed into simple wood frame. You slide the main pieces together to interlock these brackets. No tools are required but you may need more than one pair of hands to lift & slide the pieces together.”– Ansbaum
Trending review: “This chair is great but if you are a weak person you’ll need help assembling it. There’s a piece thats tucked into and under the base that you have to get out – they put it in there to save space but it comes out as its part of the chair (see directions when you get the chair) – about this piece >>dont try to pull it straight out – push down on one side of it and the other side will pop out. I tried pulling it straight out and couldn’t but then I leaned on one side and it went sideways a bit and I got it out. This chair is sturdy and has some weight to it. Its very velvety and soft – with great cushions. If you really want to get comfy though you’ll need an ottoman. “– Melanie
5. AWQM – Modern PU Leather Accent Chair
Top-rated: 384 Ratings
Highlight: The high backrest design provides you with a larger seating area and a comfortable sitting experience.
Trending review: “My husband and I have redone our office space since working from home this year. We had a nice accent chair in the corner. However, the old accent chair really was a little smaller than what we needed to be comfortable for longer than 10 minutes. Both of us really like the style and color of this particular mid century modern chair
When this arrived we were really surprised on how solid and heavy the arms and brace bars were. The two of us, together, assemble this in less than five minutes. We were very excited that there is enough room to sit in it and be comfortable. You can also add an accent pillow and still be able to fit in it. It is a nice wide size if you want to curl up in it and read. It’s very economical has a nice slant and the cushions are thick and comfortable. The material is very durable. Our cat has sat in it several times and there is not a single scratch mark in it.
This was definitely a style and comfort upgrade. Definitely worth the cost to have something that we can use and are not embarrassed to have others sit in as it is sturdy and quality.”– Will-review4u
Reassuring review: “I have had this chair in my suite for 8 months and it is still holding up strong! I bought it as a pre-order so I was definitely nervous! But I am more than pleased with my purchase. It’s super comfy, durable, and clients of different sizes can sit in it. I only wish it wasn’t as low to the ground, so it is hard to get up from if you’re tall like me lol.”– Shanice▪️FineApple Stylez Salon
6. SONGMICS – Accent Leisure Chair
Top-rated: 508 Ratings
Highlight: Wrapped in a breathable linen-look fabric, this armchair boasts a generously padded seat, S-springs, and elastic bandages for firm support and unmatched softness. Prepare to drift away in pure bliss!
Helpful review: “This is a decent chair for the price. Put it together quickly and easily, my only real complaint is that the stickers meant to cover the holes for the screws to put it together are a totally different color from the actual wood and look worse than just leaving the holes visible “– S Wingo
Trending review: “This chair is perfect for me as I’m not tall so the makeup is just the right size. Following the instructions in putting them together I couldn’t get to work but my brother-in-law has no problem. He didn’t follow the instructions.– Joan Osmond
Anyway I’m happy with the final outcome.”
Reassuring review: “My son and I assembled both chairs within an hour. We didn’t have any issues with holes not lining up. We did need to add felt pads under some of the feet to keep the chair from wobbling slightly. Overall, a nice addition to a den we rarely use!”– EW
7. Urban Shop – Oversized Polycanvas Foldable Saucer Chair
Top-rated: 1,696 Ratings
Highlight: Durable rust-proof frame with a locking mechanism built-in for years of safe, reliable chilling.
Helpful review: “Got this for my 7 year old and I find myself relaxing in it whenever I go in there room lol I’m 5’8” 162lbs and it doesn’t sink in, tip over or make me feel squished in. I thought this would be more so for kids but it’s great for both kids and adults! I also like No assembly was necessary. Just take it out the box and pop it open! Very Happy customer”– R.williams
Trending review: “This chair is awesome!!! Totally worth the extra 10 bucks!! Its big but not too big. Perfect for my husky little 11 year old. Seems sturdy so far. Weve had it a couple of months now. The dog loves it too lol!! Definitely recomended over the small one for any age!! “– Nikki Everett
Reassuring review: “UMM I was so scared cause I thought it wasn’t sturdy. My man and I would sit together in it and it could hold both of us. Aesthetically it looks beautiful. It’s not soft but it’s alright. It’s definitely bigger than expect it which I loved it cause I had low expectations for the size.”– Jancy
8. Freemax – Living Room Chairs
Top-rated: 92 Ratings
Helpful review: “I purchased this chair a couple of months ago as an accent chair. It is very sturdy and comfortable. The color adds life to the room. They are so vibrant! I loved the chair so much that I just ordered another one. The shipping time was phenomenal. I received the chair 2 days after I ordered it. I am very impressed with these chairs. “– MsLiss

I will definitely purchase from this vendor again as they stand behind the products they sell!”– Gina A
