Is there one piece of furniture or accessory that you obsess about? Maybe you never get tired of curling your toes into a plush rug, dream of curling up on the perfect settee with crushed velvet upholstery and a tufted back, or drool over side tables with curvy legs. If I had to pick one item of furniture to continue buying for the rest of my life, I think it would be chairs.
Big chairs and little chairs. Practical, comfortable chairs and completely impractical, but oh-so-beautiful chairs! Just call my Goldilocks! I’m forever on the hunt for the just-right chair, even though the last thing our house needs another place to sit!
This unassuming wing back chair is probably my favorite chair in the house. I snatched it up at a garage sale for $10 a couple years ago and while Adam has his doubts when I brought it in the house, I think he would now agree that it was a fabulous find!
Some people would recover it, but kind of like the worn green upholstery. I haven’t done anything to it and think it’s in pretty good shape.
I’ll be honest, I don’t sit in it often. I may even say that it falls into the category of not-so-practical chairs. It sits lower than the other chairs in the living room, and is tucked in the corner, but on a sunny morning doesn’t it just seem to be begging for a little company? (Yes, my furniture talks to me. Doesn’t yours?)
And while we’re on the subject of chairs, if you haven’t seen my chair obsessed board on Pinterest, you should definitely check it out! And if you’re interested in learning a little history about different chair styles, check out the One Kings Lane’s Guide to Modern Chairs.
So, what’s your furniture obsession?
