A dull, boring living room is something everyone is trying to avoid in these days, so lately I’ve been asked many times “What should I place in my living room to make it look exciting and interesting?”.
There are several ways to do this, but I always advise my clients to go for the easiest solutions, and one of these are animal print living room chairs.
Why are animal print chairs useful in a living room?
Although you may be a bit scared about adding some animal prints in your living room, you should know that they are one of the easiest ways to transform a dull living room into a really attractive one.
Why is that? Well, the answer is pretty simple: adding a patterned focal point in a neutral colored room would make it look more vibrant and strong, and the best items you could choose as a focal point are the chairs.
Chairs are usually located in a visible part of the living room, so when you enter the room, one of the first things you will see are the chairs.
For this reason, I recommend people to use chairs as their room’s focal point, because they will immediately grab the attention and give the room a more exciting feeling.
How can you make animal print chairs blend with the other elements?
This isn’t very complicated, you only have to make sure you’re not overcrowding the room with different patterns and unsuitable decorations.
I usually advise people to go for animal print chairs in living rooms painted in neutral or solid colors, as they will easily become the center of attention.
Placing animal prints in a living room that already has a patterned wall color would only make these colors hurdle together, and that won’t lead to a good result.
That’s why, go for animal print chairs only if you have a simplistic, neutral decor, that isn’t full of different decorations and patterned items.
In this way you will make the chairs the focal point of the room, and all the other elements will align around them easily. So you won’t have to worry about them not blending with each other.
Can you use animal print chairs in a living room with a brighter decor?
Of course you can. It’s true that it’s a bit more difficult than in a neutral room, but it’s possible.The main thing is not exaggerating with colors and making sure they blend together.
For example, let’s say you have a bright orange living room and you want to use some animal print chairs. You can do this easily, but you have to keep in mind that the chairs should have a simpler animal print, like black and white. In this way, the room won’t seem overcrowded by too many vibrating colors, as there will be a balance between them.
Black and white animal prints actually go very well with stronger colors, so if animal print living room chairs are something you’re into, don’t worry about placing them in a brighter decor. As long as you respect the colors, everything looks right.
However, take care not to buy some bright animal print chairs, as they won’t look that good in a living room that already has a stronger color. The main accent will disappear, and you will have several centers of attention, which will be too much for the eye.
Best types of animal print chairs
These being said, I want to show you several types of animal print living room chairs you could get, so that you can get an idea about what exactly you like and what you would need. The chairs have pretty affordable prices, so your budget doesn’t have to be very high.
Remember that the first criteria is to find a chair that is suitable for your living room, not one who looks amazing but could hardly blend with the other elements. So let’s not be too long and see several types of animal print living room chairs.
Patterned Accent Chair, Leopard by Coaster Home Furnishings ($113.99)
This gorgeous, luxurious chair is everything you need to make your living room an attractive, stylish place.
I absolutely love Coaster Home Furnishing’s products, they have great prices, beautiful products with an extremely high quality, quite unusual for that small price. That’s why I’ll probably recommend many of their products, because I’ve tried some myself and I have a great opinion about them.
Coming back to our story, this leopard print chair could fit really well in a room painted in solid colors, even if these aren’t really light.
Don’t forget that if you place this chair in your living room, it will become the main center of attention, so a lot of bright decorations aren’t necessary.
What I really love about this chair is that gorgeous leopard print, which is quite hard to find, that’s why I was so shocked when I saw that small price. In the end, it turned out to be more than great, because the chair has a great quality, different of what you would normally expect at such a low price.
The fact that it’s a pretty large piece is definitely an advantage, as you wouldn’t want to pay these money for something tiny, that wouldn’t allow you to sit comfortably.
The only downside I can think about is the fact that this chair doesn’t have any arms, I guess it would be even more comfortable if it had any, but after all, I’m quite satisfied with how it feels in this way too.
So, in case you need an animal print living room chair, I really advise you to check this out before anything else, you may have a great surprise and find what you need from the first try.
Accent Chair with Zebra Print in Black Finish by ADF ($145.00)
In case you’re interested in a more elegant approach for your living room, this chair could be a 2 in 1 investment.
The zebra print would work as an accent element, while the unique design this chair has would make it the perfect choice for an elegant, stylish decor.
When it comes to aspect, I’m sure everyone agrees that it’s a gorgeous furniture piece, that would add character and elegance to every living room.
It also seems quite luxurious, and I bet that if you didn’t know the price, you would suppose it was around $600. I’m a huge fan of cheap furniture pieces that seem much more expensive, and this chair definitely fits in this category, so it’s a “must have” if you want a glamorous living room and you don’t have a lot of money to spend.
The chair is made of a solid dark wood, and it feels really soft and comfortable. I’m really happy that it has arms, because for me this matters a lot when it comes to choosing an elegant chair for my living room.
I really love the zebra print, but if you’re a fan of leopard print, I’ve found the exact chair with a leopard print, so it’s great that you have 2 amazing choices. The price is a bit higher for the leopard print ($162.30), I don’t know why, but anyway, the difference is not very big, so it shouldn’t be a problem. In case you’re curious, you can see the leopard print chair here.
I don’t know what else I can say about it because I don’t want to repeat what I’ve said before, the thing is that I really love it and to me it seems a real bargain for that great quality and aspect it has, so it’s definitely one of my top recommendations.
Microfiber Accent Chair, Zebra Print by Coaster Home Furnishings ($150.00)
If you need a simple, affordable center of attention for your living room, you really have to take a look at this product.
The new animal print chair from Coaster Home Furnishings is specially designed for this purpose, you can see this from its name, as it’s called an “Accent” chair.
In other words, it’s a really cheap solution for a decorative, accent element: instead of paying thousands of dollars for patterned sofas or sophisticated works of art, you can get this animal print chair for just $150, and it will do the very same thing when it comes to accent.
The good part is that you don’t have to buy a whole set of chairs (unless you want to), because one would be enough to become the center of attention in your living room. You can count on it if you want an exciting atmosphere in your living room.
Regarding the chair, it’s made of solid dark wood and it’s extremely large and comfortable, in spite of not having any arms. It has a great quality, so you won’t be able to guess its real price if you place it near expensive furniture pieces. It’s also very easy to assemble, and the shipping is pretty quick, but unfortunately it doesn’t ship outside the US.
Overall, it’s a great option if you want an accent piece in your living room, and it also has a great quality for its small price, so I guarantee it can’t be a bad investment.
Parsons Chair (set of 2) Pattern: Leopard by Kinfine ($358.76)
Here’s another type of an elegant animal print chair, a bit different from the one by ADF, but definitely almost as beautiful as that one.
There is certainly a matter of tastes when it comes to choosing an elegant chair, so if you like this style, I really advise you take a look at it.
Probably the most important advantage of this product is the price. I don’t know if you noticed yet, but this is the price for 2 chairs, not just for one, because they only sell them as a set.
Honestly, this is more than great. It would be around $175 for each chair, which is an amazing price for such a glamorous furniture piece. I don’t think I could find a similar one for less than $300, but this time for one piece, not for two.
That’s why I really advise you to get this chair if you want an elegant, glamorous living room. Don’t forget that no matter how stylish it looks, it’s still an animal print chair, so it will also work as an accent piece. For this reason, be careful not to overcrowd the living room, and you’ll get a perfect decor.
The chair doesn’t have any arms but I think it looks much better like this, I can’t imagine it as elegant as now if it had arms. Maybe it’s its design that makes me think so, or I don’t know what else, but I guess you agree with me here, the chair looks much better without arms.
A great advantage is that it’s really soft and comfortable, to me it felt like this kind of chair you wouldn’t want to put away.
Anyway, all perfect things have a downside, and this one is no exception: unfortunately, it’s pretty hard to find, usually there aren’t many left in stock, so you either have to wait, or order later. This is pretty bad, but I think it’s because it’s a best-seller so there are many people interested in it.
So if you want to get a set, keep in mind that you may have to stay in line, so you’d better hurry up.
Cheetah Animal Print Fur Washable Large Bean Bag Chair by Ahh! Products ($199.99)
If regular chairs aren’t exactly what you’ve been dreaming for your living room, you might be interested in a different type of chair, the bag one.
Though some people consider them too childish for a living room, I definitely cannot agree with this opinion, because I’ve seen many cases in which a bag chair can totally change the appearance of a living room.
It’s true that I wouldn’t recommend it for a Victorian decorated room, probably for an elegant one either, but if you want a casual, cozy living room, this item may transform it completely.
Remember that it’s an animal print chair after all, and it will become your room’s center of attention, so it’s important to have decorations and furniture pieces that blend with it, else it will be quite hard to get the feeling you want in your living room.
Obviously, it’s one of the most comfortable chairs and unlike many people’s opinion, it can be used by everyone, not only by children or teenagers. It’s true that they tend to prefer these chairs, but it’s not a rule, and having a bag chair in your living room won’t seem too childish by any means.
So, if you’d like this type of chair, you can check it out, the price isn’t too high, I guess.
Whether you need an accent mark in your living room or you simply love exotic pieces, animal print living room chairs are a great option if you choose them well. And this isn’t very hard, as long as you take into consideration your living room’s color and the style of your decorations.
