One of my favorite accent chairs is, without a doubt, the dome chair (or alternatively, porter chair). These accent chairs have a very unique shape with a tall back and rounded hood that instantly catches your eye. They are a statement piece in their own right with a truly timeless elegance.
What I also love about dome chairs is how versatile they can be. While the shape stays the same, there are myriad ways they can be customized in terms of color, fabric, and finish. I’ve seen so many variations over the years and every one is more inspiring than the last. They can also suit a variety of spaces, from a foyer in need of a “wow” factor to a chic outdoor living area.
While a dome chair is typically an investment as they are very unique and well-made, making the price a little higher, they are worth every penny. They are sure to elevate the style of any space in which they are used and will never go out of style.
Here are 10 examples of the fabulous dome chair in a variety of styles and spaces.
