Okay, I am going to try to redeem myself from the toilet themed post from yesterday...
I bought a new piece of furniture the other day. Granted, we live in a pretty small apartment, but it seems that we needed more sitting room. I am one of those people that will stand before I sit on the floor at a party or gathering. I have done my fair share of sitting on the floor in my line of work...pretzel style, of course. So, I thought I would give chair hunting one more try. The rules of this hunt were simple.
1.) Chair must be lean and small.
2.) Chair must be of a neutral or natural color to match deeply loved red couch.
3.) Chair must be comfortable sans ottoman because no matter how much we would like to put our feet up after a hard half days work, we have no room for pampering the feet in that manner.
4.) Chair must be reasonable. Of course, this is subjective, but I know what it means.
I had my eye on a few chairs before the Christmas season and I would like to say that I am shopping savvy enough to have thought to myself, "I'll wait until after Christmas and they'll be on sale." But I didn't...but to my lucky surprise, they were all on sale! So, I bought the one shown here.
To this point, I have spent about three hours sitting in the chair. I have read many chapters from the book Million Little Pieces...a popular book that I think everyone on this planet has read except me. I have enjoyed a cocoa while chatting with my husband. I have talked on the phone in my new cozy, lean, small, sans ottoman, reasonable chair.
