The traditional carpentry joints using in solid wood furniture are crafted to use the strength of the wood and design of the joint itself for its strength. A pinned tenon or a properly crafted dovetail joint needs no glue, nails or screws to make it secure. Unlike plywood or particleboard, solid wood joints do not separate their layers or disintegrate when they become wet. They remain strong, and expand and contract along with the parts they bind together in extremes of heat and cold.
Years ago, the mention of accent chairs brought about thoughts of only living room furniture. Everyone had a sofa. A small number of people also had a matching loveseat. And usually there was one old, faded, lumpy, upholstered accent chair close to the TV. That accent arm chair, more often than not with makeshift covers on the arms to hide the worn spots, was dad`s or grandpa`s favorite place to sit down and watch a ball game. The number one criterion for having that accent chair in the living room was it was comfortable.
