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.
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!
