She wants a ladylike slipper chair. He wants a manly recliner. While relationship therapist probably isn’t part of your job description, you can still help ward off a domestic World War III by steering your clients toward home furnishings that make everyone happy.

To help you out, we've taken two accent chairs from Chaddock Home — one for him and one for her — and paired them with other accent chairs that will satisfy both sides. Check them out and help your clients find a blissful compromise.

His: Count L Lounge Chair — Chaddock 

Count accent chair with stripped fabric from Chaddock HomeJust ask Borat, the right chair can make a man feel like a king in his castle. The Count L lounge chair from Chaddock features a modern silhouette with narrow arms and a tall back for a buttoned-up, fashion-forward style that both men women can fall in love with. Tapered legs with extended ferrules add to the chair’s clean, masculine appeal, plus your client can make it his own by choosing the upholstery (fabric or leather), finish and hardware (Antique Brass or Polished Nickel).









Other smashing good looks that the girls can get behind: 

Painters Quilted Chair — Hancock & Moore  

Pianters Quilted chair in brown leather and a cowhide exterior from Hancock & MooreDecked out in leather, cowhide, nail head trim and a quilted back, the Painters Quilted Chair from Hancock & Moore couldn’t be more masculine if it tried. Still, this wingback is a beaut that can hold its own next to more feminine styles. Put it next to the fireplace aside a side table with gold or brass accents











Dalston Chair — Fine Furniture Design 

Dalston chair with a short square back in a black fabric and wooden arms and legs from Fine Furniture DesignLike all 50 pieces in Fine Furniture Design’s Esquire Collection, the Dalston chair draws inspiration from men’s fashion, culture and style with “just the right blend of gender-neutral elements to broaden its appeal to both men and women,” according to the company. Houndstooth-patterned upholstery fabric is most certainly a nod to men’s suiting, while curvy yet clean lines soften the hunky appeal. 










Hers: Countess L Lounge Chair — Chaddock

Curvey backed Countess accent chair in light blue with black legs and brass accents from ChaddockA softer, arguably more graceful companion to the Count, Chaddock’s Countess L lounge chair is fit for a queen, countess or commoner. Fitted with a rounded back and elegantly appointed armrests, the chair features the same tapered ferrule-capped legs as its male counterpoint in the front and unique, slightly bowed legs in the back. And because who doesn’t like to have it her way, your client can also have her choice of fabric or leather, finish and hardware. 









Other feminine looks men will fall for:

Chiclet Accent Chair — Koket

MEtallic covered Chiclet accent chair with a high, rounded back and brass legs from KoketIf your clients equate “girly” with Pepto pink and ruffles, it’s up to you to set the record straight. An introduction to this Chiclet will help. Feminine but without the frills, Chiclet is just what you’d expect from Koket — seductive, smart, edgy perfection. The accent chair features metallic upholstery (though it’s available in different fabrics) and elegant tapered legs in either Polished Brass or stainless steel. 










Paolo Accent Chair — Maggie Cruz Home

Pink velvet-covered Paoloaccent hair with brass legs from Maggie Cruz HomeIf your client’s heart is set on pink, opting for Taboo Nectar velvet upholstery on the Paolo slipper chair from Maggie Cruz Home is how you do it right. The modern coral hued seat with its brushed brass metal base is decidedly feminine, but temper its girlishness with more masculine pieces like a tailored coffee table or leather ottoman
