It is a very important piece of furniture, whether the room you are decorating is the guest room, the kids room or the nursery. Guests might want to have some time to themselves and really, no one wants to spend too much time sitting on a bed. Having a chair in the guest room would be a really good option. If it is the kids room you are decorating, similar logic applies here too.

Kids might need places to sit, other than the computer chair and bed. Especially when they have friends over. Coming to nursery, it would be hard to not put a chair in there, because where else would you sit with the baby, when it wakes you up in the night.
