Cream interiors may set alarm bells ringing among those who fear dropping red wine on the furniture, and making statement accent chairs a statement for the wrong reason. 

But cream boucle chairs are all the craze - even Kim Kardashian has them, and with four children; North, Saint, Psalm and Chicago - that is no mean feat.

In a recent interview with Vogue the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star gave viewers a tour of her California mansion, which boasted a neutral colour palette, minimalist decor, cream sofas and loveseats.  So now we want cream accent chairs and sofas à la the Skims founder. 

However, accent chairs are not for the faint hearted, so for those who want to go bolder with the colour, and really make the accent chair a focal point in your home, there is a huge variety on the market to shop now.

From MADE to Homebase, we have sifted through to find the best accent chairs you can snuggle into with a book and a glass of…something clear after a long day in the office. 

While some may wish to go for the on-trend textured boucle fabric, others may prefer a soft linen, fabric, velvet or leather in a neutral tone, while others may be wishing for a matching pouffe too.
