Best Modern Coastal Accent Chairs

Modern coastal is trendy now, and with no surprise. Modern design is versatile, practical, and less in-your-face, making it easy to blend with other styles. If you are going for a modern coastal look, you can’t go wrong with these accent chairs!

1. Lakeshore Chair By Serena & Lily

This accent chair is the image of modern coastal! There are many things to love about this chair, but one of the things we love most is its customizability.

With over 160 different fabrics to choose from, both patterned and solid, as well as a selection of different woods, the styling possibilities of the Lakeshore chair are endless! Available in five different fabrics, we recommend the performance fabric if you have children, pets, or entertain often.

The chair has an inviting, non-intimidating feel, exactly what you want from coastal furniture. The absence of the armrests creates airiness and ensures that the chair doesn’t dominate the room. Instead, it subtly draws you in.
