Comfy Chair

Everyone needs a special spot for some solitary time - a place to sit, think, read, sip some tea or, as in my case, sit and nurse a baby.  Below, is a photo of the chair in my office.  I bought it at a consignment store last July as a birthday present to myself.  It has some bumps and bruises, but I love it.  It is very comfortable and, I think, beautiful.


P.S. Barcaloungers are comfy, yes - but beautiful, they are not.  They will never ever EVER be beautiful and they don't belong in your home.  This is why God invented Craig's List: somewhere there's a college kid who needs a Lazy Boy to put in front of his play station.  Sell your recliner and instead, opt for something that has both comfort AND style. When it comes to choosing a chair for your own little meditative nook, you might look to some of the following photos for inspiration.

And for those of you who read the title of my post and thought I was referring to Monty Python's famous "Comfy Chair" Inquisition sketch, here you go:

My parents have one exactly like the gold one in your first phone but the colors are peacock blue and green. It was in my grandmothers house forever and I love that chair.
