Looking for the right chair...
I've been browsing around for a smallish but comfortable chair and I thought I'd get you all in on the action.
Once upon a time, this room only had the red love seat and the blue chair, because I didn't really think we had space for a "partner" chair for the blue chair. But then I placed our antique mission rocker there, and it was fine, so we left it. It made the space appear more conducive to conversation, but no one ever sat in the rocker! I don't like sitting in rockers at all, and I guess a lot of other people don't either.
So, the other day I switched the rocker with a chair we had in the living room. However, I don't like the chair in this spot. It seems too big, and one more wood tone in the room just feels like one too many (even though nothing in the room "matches"). I'm thinking of maybe painting that chair and putting it in the guest room...which leaves an open spot for Just The Right Chair.
What would you put in place of the wood/cane chair? Adding two UNstaged photos so you can see the space in question and the seating that I have now.
PS there is usually an area rug underneath it all, but it's been out being cleaned and literally was just delivered a few minutes ago. So imagine an 8x10 under everything.
