My New Little Chair!


My living room is long and narrow, therefore I have two sitting areas. One with the sofa that faces the television and fireplace, and another under the window which is two chairs and perfect for coffee and conversation.

The awkward part of the room is the chair along side the couch. One is needed for more seating but generally an upholstered chair divides up the room. (Why didn't someone tell me that I needed a sectional when I bought my couch!?:) If I placed the chair by the fireplace so that you could face the people seated on the couch, then you walked into the back of the chair when you entered the room. If the chair was placed beside the couch, it seemed out of place and useless for conversation. Plus, it was a pain to move around.

Wow this is an oldie. The room doesn't even look like this anymore. Nevertheless, you see the chair. Sorta

A few months ago, I sold the floral chair on Kijiji and tucked the money away for when I found something to replace it. I looked at a lot of options, but space was limited. It had to be something small scale. Then, it occurred to me that an Eames rocker could be the perfect solution. I see them a lot in nurseries but more and more, they are popping up in living spaces.



I couldn't find nor likely afford a vintage one. So I sourced some reproductions online and found a Canadian company in BC called Wire Home. The chair was affordable and so was the shipping. I knew that Amelia from House Pretty had purchased one (another maritime blogger!) so I contacted her and she assured me that she was happy with the product and the service.


They offer it in four different colors;  red, blue, black and white. I decided to go with white like the one Nicole has in her living room. Who would of thought? I don't like white at all, do I?


Another gorgeous space with and Eames rocker. I love this room and it reminds me of when we painted the floors in Stephane's old kitchen. It was so beautiful.. I wonder how they are holding up?




Anyhoo, my chair has arrived. It came in 2 pieces and took me all of 5 minutes to put together. Size wise, it's perfect for the space as it doesn't take too much space. I can move it around easily without scratching my hardwood floors. It sits a little low to the floor but I knew that about that going in and that's fine, we aren't big people. Lastly, it's surprisingly comfortable. Maybe not for curling up and watching a movie but that's what couches are for! Overall, I'm happy with it!



Isn't it cute?



I love my little zigzag pillow from this ebay seller paired with my Ikea sheepskin rug. I wish I had picked up a few of those on my last trip. They are so versatile, especially at this time of year.


I'm off to sit in it for a bit!

  10. I use reproduction Eames eiffel base chairs in my dining room with the gray Ikea sheepskins on top, super cozy and comfy. Wanted to add a rocker to the living room but was worried the rockers would dent the wood floor... have you noticed anything like that?

  15. Awesome looking.An armchair is a necessary bedside buddy for a bed and sofa. Upholstered armchairs can cost a small fortune, especially if they are well-made. Even at the low end stores, they sell for nearly as much as a loveseat. Buying an armchairs is like buying art--besides being intensely personal, there is quite a bit of factors to be considered.

  18. I have always loved Eames furniture but could never afford it. I was sent to Manhattan Home Design by a friend. They have a lot of replicas. I bought the Eames lounger for $1000 and am totally satisfied.

  20. word of advice, I'd be cautious of shopping at online stores with rock bottom prices. I'd rather pay more for more quality and service. I googled up yelp reviews for manhattanhomedesign and they were beyond horrible. I also checked out the spammer above, Alex Zender and the prices were a give away of the dismal quality. I would recommend Elite Modern Furniture for modern furniture replicas. Not only is the quality excellent I also had great customer service. I'll shop again shortly.. feel free to check them out: http://www.elite-modern.com
