With this in mind Woodbender has some tips on creating a statement piece to introduce to your interior as a talking point and anchor to the space.

1. Don’t match
A statement piece in a room can only be an accent piece if it stands out and catches the eye. It therefore can’t blend in with the rest of the furniture. You can achieve this through changing the colour, pattern or texture of the fabric; use a contrasting timber finish; choose a different style of furniture. You can make the statement as bold or as subtle as you want whilst still creating an impact.

2. Love the fabric
Regardless of how bold you want to go and how adventurous you want to be with the fabric it is essential that you choose a fabric you love and will love for a long time. A striking accent piece will lose its impact if you are not 100% in love with the fabric you choose.

3. Tie it in with accessories
If you want to be bold with your accent piece but are worried about how it will work in the space you can always tie it in with accessories in the room. This can be achieved through introducing complementary scatter cushions, a table cloth, lampshades, or rugs.
