I am awaiting delivery of a new off-white chair for the living room.
But wouldn't you know it, I have fallen in love with another chair. I had hoped to replace both chairs, just not so soon!
We have an old chair in the room that David simply loves, but in my mind...it doesn't work with the new scheme (and belongs with its matching sofa which has been deployed to the TV room).
Here is the new chair. It's just the style I wanted for the spot...a firm, small-scale occasional-type chair. I like to have a variety of seating and often find that older guests prefer a more upright chair (easier to get out of). It would also better suit the small space.
The new chair is perfect, but I don't think I'll have much luck convincing David we need it. Plus, he won't want to give up his old reading chair, even though the new off-white chair (soon to arrive) will make a perfect reading chair.
I think the lines of the new chair are lovely. It was surprised to learn it is a Sarah Richardson design.
What do you think? Any plan of attack I should use in my conversation with David? Begging? Crying? Bargaining? Promising to cook dinner every day for a year? Hmm.
