The main purpose of an accent chair is to enhance the look of your living space, adding comfort and style at the same time. An accent chair is often used in small spaces where seating may be limited, but they also work well as statement pieces in larger rooms too. The best place for one would be in a corner or off on its own where it can either provide contrast or balance with other furniture pieces. The size of an accent chair depends on its intended use: a large chair is great for providing extra seating when you have guests over, while smaller ones can be used for decorative purposes only.
