Here in the UK, we celebrate Mother’s Day - or Mothering Sunday, as it’s more traditionally known - exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday during Lent. 

In days gone by, it was a time when employees were allowed a rare day off work to visit their family home and children would give flowers to their mother.

Nowadays, we still tend to treat our lovely Mums to a beautiful bouquet or some chocolates, along with the added luxury of a nice meal in their favourite restaurant. Sometimes you might choose to celebrate the day with special gifts.

If your mum has an excellent eye for home decor and is super-keen to stay on trend, then what better way to play to her love of good design than with a brand-new accent chair? Accent chairs are a beautiful and practical way to show a sense of style and individuality in the home.

Here are our favourites for your inspiration, in order of popularity with our customers:


This mid-century design chair is so versatile with its neutral linen cover and oak finish legs, it would look beautiful in any home. You can curl up comfortably with a good book in the Cignei, or use it as a statement piece of furniture in the living room. We reckon it would suit either modern or traditional decor schemes, and your Mum could add a touch of her own style with coordinating cushions or throws.


The Lydia accent chair harks back to the glamorous styling of the 1950s and Dior’s New Look, with a curved back, stitched deep velvet upholstery and natural oak finish legs. This chair is perfect for mid-century homes but would also look beautiful in a more modern setting. The Lydia is available in a range of gorgeous colours such as Midnight Blue or Mink velvet, depending on whether you’re in the mood to stand out or blend in. We think this chair would look fabulous in a bedroom.


For a touch of opulent luxury, the Darleya occasional chair is certainly the star of the show. Its crushed velvet upholstery and button detailing, along with the curling back and arms are simply stunning. What’s more, for all its eye-catching qualities, it’s a very practical chair, being both comfortable and compact, so it’s the ideal choice for bedrooms in smaller homes or traditional cottages with low ceilings.


This gorgeous wingback chair has a shapely, elegant design and traditional mahogany finish legs. The soft velvet cover and deep cushions will make this chair an ideal and cosy place to curl up under a plush throw and watch a good film. Or, this chair would work equally well as a statement piece of furniture in a living room. The Reyna chair comes in a range of stunning colours, and we’re sure you’ll find one that your Mum will cherish forever.


This delightful retro-styled chair has gorgeous stitched velvet upholstery and button detailing, with classic piped edging. The Aylenne accent chair stands out for us because of its beautiful modern colours and dark wood finish legs, giving it an undeniable air of sophistication. We feel this chair is so versatile that it would work equally well in a bedroom, hallway or living room, but your Mum will know best!
