About Us


We are Accent Prone, a lifestyle boutique located in the heart of the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina. We are dedicated to finding you uniquely distinctive accents at affordable prices. At Accent Prone we believe that your home should be a reflection of yourself. Designing your home should be an experience, incorporating items that identify your personal style. It is a fun process that consistently evolves, finding a lamp here and an art piece there. You will be most happy with your home when you have curated it over time, creating memories along the way. There is no need to shop down the street at a “big box store” and having to settle for mass-produced furniture. Let us help you create the perfect living environment for your family and loved ones. Similarly, your personal fashion sense should be unique to you. We have collected fashion and jewelry finds that are sure to express your flair. We are certainly a distinct boutique offering furniture, fashion, and jewelry.  Shop small, support local, and truly see the difference. 


Meet The Owners

Justin and Cheri Lingafelt

We are Justin and Cheri, a husband and wife team with a passion for furniture, design, and home décor. Four years ago we decided to open this small business in our hometown of Kernersville, NC, and have enjoyed every minute of it. Since its inception, we have been combining our backgrounds and eye for design to give you a truly unique shopping experience.

Justin’s family works extensively in the furniture industry, which has given him a rich background in furniture manufacturing and design. My love for jewelry and fashion developed from my father’s own jewelry business; from watching his own successful venture. My father, Terry, has been a huge asset to the development of Accent Prone, with a deep knowledge in running and growing a business. In college, we both focused on entrepreneurship and decided to combine furniture, jewelry, and fashion, a blending which included both of our expertise. We developed the name of our business from the phrase ‘Accident Prone’ to ‘Accent Prone’. We coined the phrase “Accent Prone” to describe something you are. We want our business to be more than just a store specializing in exciting accent pieces. Accent Prone is something you are and a way of living life.

Our goal is for you to become "Accent Prone". Consistently seeking inspiring accents for your home, your self, or for others. “Don’t be boring, be Accent Prone.”

Accent Prone: /ˈæk·sent - proʊn
