Over the past few years I’ve been trying to gradually mix a few mid-century modern pieces into our living room. My birthday present came a few days early, and I think it’s the missing piece. Just look at those sleek flared legs and beautiful button tufts! It’s one of those classic pieces that will last a life time.
The fabric looks charcoal grey from a distance but has flecks of brown, grey, beige, blue, and white up close, so it will go with any color scheme I can possibly imagine. The cushions will hold their shape well since they’re quite firm, and the chair is so wide that I can sit with my legs crossed and my knees don’t touch the sides (quite a feat considering I’m 5′ 10″). I was going to replace our love seat with this chair, but for now I think I like having both in the room. It’s a little more crowded, but it’s inviting to have so many comfy seating options.
Daniel claims this is the ugliest chair he’s ever seen, but I’m so in love with it! Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to have a husband who gives me free rein when it comes to decorating our home (even when he doesn’t love my choices). He doesn’t care what color I paint the walls or what style I gravitate toward, as long as he has a comfortable couch to stretch out on. Remind me to give him a big smooch when he gets home from work.
(If you’re wondering, this is the Taylor Chair from Thrive in the Cordova Eclipse fabric. I requested fabric swatches before ordering, and Thrive emailed me a sweet coupon code. I’m not sure if they will always do that, but it’s worth a try if you’re furniture shopping!)
