Well I did it. I got living room chairs! There were a lot of things to take into consideration and I have been looking for months but the chairs I picked meet all of my criteria:
- Under $200 each
- Wooden frame (so the cats don’t scratch)
- Must have arms!
- Match the black/gray/yellow color scheme
Originally, I saw these chairs on Joss & Main (if you’d like an invite to the site, leave me your email address in the comments) and they were pure white and black print. In checking around, I found them $30 cheaper per chair on Overstock.com with just a slightly off white coloring. They arrived on Tuesday and Matt was so kind as to assemble them for me on Friday.
I absolutely know that these chairs aren’t for everyone, but if I can’t be a little extra ME in my own house then where can I be? I have 2 zebra purses, a cardigan, a bath towel, ballet flats, a necklace… the list goes on. It’s a print I love and have loved for years. I went back and forth on whether or not to get them for about five months and then I decided that if they stuck in my head that long, then I just had to have them.
Overall, having chairs in the room really helps to pull the space together a bit more. We still need a rug and a few other decorative things, but it looks like a room now and not just a vast open space.
So there you go! Our couch is still a real bummer, we desperately need a rug, and the floors are grotesque but overall I’m really really happy with this purchase!
