It’s been about 6 weeks since we received our shipment and discovered that our nearly new leather sleeper sofa was not going to neatly fit into our Scottish duplex.
We thankfully managed to find her a good home, and
once she was out of our kitchen, we began playing around with furniture
configurations and re-brainstorming our layout now that our guest bedroom set
was taking up a big chunk of our downstairs living space.
Unfortunately, I am a
very visual person, so while brainstorming, I actually need to see every single
option before I can choose which one I like the best. Jonathan and I spent an
entire afternoon reconfiguring furniture arrangements for both our living room and
kitchen area sitting room, and eventually we came up with a solution.
decided to move our two linen chairs into the kitchen area, and we plan to set
the TV up in our former bookcase this weekend. My goal is to be cooking while
watching the Olympics by next Monday.
Since these chairs are no longer in our
living room, we will have to find a replacement for them. Unfortunately, the
coolest leather chair in the world is such a massive and strangely shaped piece
of furniture, that it monopolizes the room.
There isn’t really room for another
sofa, so we are currently in the market for a new comfy chair. We could also
use some standing floor lamps, a full length mirror, new TV trays, a desk
chair, and an accent table.
I absolutely love shopping for new furniture.
Honestly, it’s my most favorite thing. I love it even more than shopping for shoes,
or books, or cupcake mixes, or Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppies... (Okay, maybe not more than puppies.) So it’s actually hard for me to commit to a specific
piece because it means I can no longer shop for it, and that makes me a little
sad. But my goal is to have everything arranged and organized by the time our
first house guest arrives in mid-September, so the clock is ticking.
I went to the
mall on Monday to see some of the comfy-chair candidates in person, and these
are just a few that are in the running.
What do you think? If you were my house
guest, which one would you most like to sit in?
