Let’s play a little word association game – I’m going to name a store and then list out all the words that come to mind when I think of that store.
This afternoon has been battle of the chairs…
Remember all my plans for the living room, and how I desperately want to replace that dang wicker chair with something lovely, and comfy, and grown up?? (BTW, I swear, this is one of the last time’s I’ll post this little diagram of the living room…)
Well, I’ve got a few contenders for the space – they are all lovely, and I want them all, but I have to make a tough call…
First runner up, is actually a pair of these white slipper chairs…
I’m imagining them with a matching pair of sassy throw pillows in a bright print to wake them up (perfectly fluffed and chopped of course)
Yeah, yeah… I know, I know… my copy and paste of these pillows was not my finest moment in image formatting…
Ok, so I have a few issues with these slipper chairs – as cute as they may be. These are nearly $300 each – and for $600, I think I can do a lot better than Target (no offense Target… I still love you). The other concern? They are super plain from the back, which isn’t ideal when these chairs are the first thing you see when you walk into the living room to view the seating area.
Finally, I’m not sure if they exactly say “come lounge in me” – they don’t look all that comfortable… but maybe I’m wrong, and they are the most comfortable chair you’ll ever sit in. Who knows?!
So another option I found – and LOVE – is this cute little velvet number from Macys:
Yes, I realize it’s the same chair, but I am going back and forth on the colors! On the one hand, a light taupe will work with whatever decor comes and goes, but the green is so dang lovely! I love that sea-foam color and it brings some personality to the space…
And look how cute these are from the back!!
It pays to do a little research eh?
So… you can see my problem… I’m very torn on which chair to get. And I’m a big proponent of trying things out before buying – what if the cushion is too hard? Too cushy? What if the color is completely different in person?
Since I want something comfortable, I think the slipper chairs, as clean looking as they are, are out for me, and it’s really between the chair from Macy’s, and the tufted nail-head Colin Club chair.
Any opinions would be welcome here!!
