For example, an accent chair is a part of the seat that has outside function role. Usually, accent chairs complete the interior decoration, create focal points, add splashes of color or patterns, or add contrast to a room that usually bland. Unlike other items in your living room, accent chairs don’t have to explicitly match with other furniture in your living room. Instead, they must add contrasting patterns, colors, or texture to the room.
