Have you ever tried shopping for the perfect chair? It's mind-boggling. so. many. choices. Well, when I first started dreaming up my office/craft room moodboard, I thought I already had the perfect chair in mind. This blue bombshell from Urban Outfitters:
But after deciding to go bold and paint the desk blue, a blue chair wasn't really in the cards anymore. So, back to the drawing board. With my chevron wall as a backdrop, I want something with really clean lines that isn't going to compete for attention with my bold desk and wall. Someone's gotta blend in.
I have a few contenders that I'm trying to narrow down so I can hopefully start using my office/craft room. Here are my top three:
Unfortunately, I can't afford the vintage Eames Rocker, but this baby is a pretty good repro and sports a $139 price tag on Overstock. It has great reviews and I like the idea of a rocker in the office for ease of movement (you know, for when ya scoot).
Of course, the rockers fraternal twin is option #2. I love the sexy wood legs (yep, chair legs can be sexy) and I can already see it in the room. Another Overstock bargain since you get TWO for $169. And since I'm planning on having similar chairs in our dining room, these would be a great option for additional seating. Always gotta be thinking about function and practicality. Again, great reviews but I'm slightly concerned with stability as well as height (both him and his twin have this problem). The Mr. is 6'4" and some of the reviews voiced how low it sits to the ground as it's biggest fault.
And option #3. I have a secret. I have a crush on this Urban Outfitters chair. The clean lines, the bamboo frame, and the warmth it could bring to the room are all wrapped up in its stellar $149 price tag. I really wish UO had reviews, but I may call their Customer Service line and see what I can find out. It does sit a few inches higher than the other two, so that may be what pushes this puppy over the top!
Decisions, decisions. Any and all opinions are welcome because this obviously isn't going to be easy for me.
