We have been like the Three Bears trying to find a feature chair for our library corner in order to finish the makeover of our more formal living room: we wanted a chair with some personality and visual interest but those we had found were either too expensive or were not comfy enough or looked too rigid, lacking the cosy feel we were aiming for. We had put our active questing on hiatus and figured we would resume our search at some point and would maybe stumble across something appropriate in the interim.
Last weekend, we were perambulating around Costco with the four kids in tow and, somewhere between buying enough toilet roll to build a wall and a huge sack of basmati, we wandered past one of the furniture aisles and spotted a chair that looked like it was worth investigating. The kids wasted no time in giving it a test run and discovered it was a recliner chair. We had not even considered a recliner chair for our library corner but I instantly liked the idea. It was comfy, had a high enough back to support the neck and head, had sturdy arm rests and was sturdy enough to make a visual statement in that area of our living room.
We bought it. We are now all enjoying having a really comfy spot to park ourselves for quiet activities.
