Enhance Your Home with Accent Furniture

Achieve a stylish look in every room with the right accent furniture. Pottery Barn has a wide variety of furniture pieces that can be used as accents in the living room, bedroom and other areas of the home. Whether your preferred decor is traditional, modern, rustic or glam, you'll find the furnishings you need to create the style you want.

What is Accent Furniture?

Accent furniture can be described as any piece that's functional and stylish but isn't the focal point of the room. For example, a sofa or bed probably wouldn't fall into this category. Some furniture pieces that could be defined as accents include:

  • Coffee Tables: The selection at Pottery Barn contains an array of coffee tables in various styles. There's the Hadley coffee table, which has a herringbone pattern and is crafted from rustic reclaimed wood. For a contemporary look, check out the glass-top Tanner coffee table.
  • Console Tables: A console table is a versatile accent piece that can work in your living room, dining room or even the entryway of your home. These tables come in lots of styles, many of which match the coffee and end tables in the selection.
  • End Tables: Position an end table beside the sofa or bed for convenient surface space. Many of these tables have drawers and some of them have bottom shelves, so there's plenty of extra storage room. You can use them to hold a table lamp, along with drinks, remotes, your phone and any other essentials you want to keep nearby.
  • Benches and Ottomans: You'll always have extra seating with a bench or bench-style ottoman. Some of these pieces have interior compartments, so you can use them for storing blankets, pillows and other items.
  • Bookcases: If you need a place for your book collection, you can't go wrong with a bookcase. Pottery Barn has bookcases in various sizes and styles, so you can find one that works for your needs. These accent pieces are versatile, as you can use them to display decorative objects along with books.
