As I mentioned about a week ago one of my goals for 2014 is to find a chair for my living room. There are so many chairs to love and so many fabulous designers. These are just a few of my favorite designers, honestly this round up could have been 100 times as long as it is. As you can see I have a particular style in mind - 1950's/1960's danish modern, but that doesn't mean I am not open. Or at least I like to think I am open until I start doing a round up like this and then I realize maybe not so much. I don't have a large space so I want something that doesn't take up a large footprint in my living room, again one of the many reasons I love these styles. I also love the clean lines and the fact that they are comfortable for being on the smaller side. And I have no idea why I don't have more blue/green/mustard yellow/orange in my house (which is none) because whenever I look at chairs and sofas it's those colors that I am drawn to most. But being a not-big-on-color person I think a large pop of it is what really does it for me.
But in my search I am going to try to be open because if you look into the prices on any of these you can see they are spendy. Like I have never bought a car that cost as much as some of these chairs do. Hence the year-long goal to look and keep my eyes peeled for a very likely reproduction of something similar found off of craigslist or at an estate sale. And I don't want to go and jinx myself, but I have a pretty good track record of wishing on finding a particular item, like my fake fireplace, in which I wished literally two days prior to finding it for one dollar that I could have one of my very own, and suddenly finding it right there in front of me. I am crossing my fingers I will have the same luck with this, a very good price being apart of that luck. And speaking of jinxing myself, I also recently talked about I have been so healthy lately and not having been very sick at all in the last year - well, I think that lucky streak might be coming to an end. My head and shoulders are achy and the throat has a bit of a tickle. So if I am not back here tomorrow it means I have indeed become a victim of the cold and flu season and I am probably now in the throes of a dance moms marathon, having a perfectly good excuse to do such a thing.
