I have been wanting a reading chair of my own for some time. At first I thought what I was looking for was a cushy leather recliner I could get lost in, but I have changed my mind. I want a wing chair.
There is something about a wing chair that is classy and old-fashioned and I believe one could sit in it while wearing a cloche hat and feel perfectly wonderful! It brings to mind my mom’s Royal Albert china tea cups, plates of home baked cookies, and cloth napkins.
On impulse this afternoon I stopped at a local furniture store; what did I find but a perfect wing chair! Thanks to the wonders of modern technology I was able to snap a picture of it and email it to Gerry at work.
I sat in the chair I pictured myself in my favorite room in my house (It is my dining room, but that’s a story for another day.) I imagined the soft throw that my BFF gave me for Christmas across my lap, and my littlest Yorkie in my lap. Then, I pushed back and my feet were raised and I was reclined! The perfect wing chair was also a recliner! I imagined a book in my hand. Could I spend an evening reading in that chair? I was sure I could!
My phone rang as I continued browsing the selection of chairs. It was Gerry.
“Think two,” he said. “One would look out of place. Do they have another one?”
I love my husband.
Low and behold I found a second wing chair; it was the same style as the first but a different fabric. I think they would look nice together but I am not good at picturing things like that in my mind. I considered the decor and colors in my home. Would they fit in? Where would I put it or them? Do I really need a wing chair? Do I need two? Do I want two?
I left the store without buying a wing chair, of course. I wouldn’t make a purchase like that without my husband along whether I had his blessing or not. We may go back and look at the wing chairs in the next day or so.
Here is a link to a post I did when I first started blogging. There is a picture of the interior of my house (coincidentally the view is from my dining room) that shows the color scheme.
What do you think? Would the wing chairs fit in?
