Do you find decorating to be a domino effect? What started out to replace my den sofa has now evolved into getting a new rug (more on that later), a new accent chair and now I’m looking for a replacement chair for my husband’s recliner (he doesn’t know that yet)! I’m 99% sure I’m getting the Ektorp white slipcovered sofa from Ikea with an additional slipcover in the Svanby beige so I can change up. We have a very comfy recliner that has seen better days so I’m thinking that I need (want) to replace it with something more stylish but still comfy. Here’s a few ideas I’ve found:
This won’t work but it’s such a pretty chair…much like the one featured in the Southern Living Idea House (which I’ll be reposting about after the August issue of Southern Living comes out)
I love this one…it swivels and looks like it would be so comfortable
I love this one too….it reminds me of one I saw in Country Living one time
JC Penney's has a line called “Friday” by Linden Street but I couldn’t get a good picture. One of my sweet blog friends (Kelly) also suggested I might want to consider getting a stripe slipcover for their Friday chair…a good idea since the sofa will be white.
Of course, Ikea has a Ektorp chair that matches the Ektorp sofa but I’ve heard it’s not very comfortable. Comfort is key as we will be using the chair a lot….like every day and it’s where I blog from. I love the ones from Pottery Barn but just not the price!
I would love for ya’ll to give me some ideas/suggestions/links for a replacement chair.
About my new rug mentioned above….I noticed when we were at the Southern Living Idea House they used two 5x7’s (I think that was the size) from Ikea together in the den and I liked that idea so I was planning on buying two when I get my sofa. But the other day I was in Ross and found one which was just a tad smaller than what I needed (I needed an 8x10) but this was 7.6 x 9.6 so I brought it home and it works beautifully! The Ikea rugs were $99 each and this one was $89.00! Even my husband likes it.
I don’t know if I’ll leave the faux zebra down but for now it stays until I bring in my new sofa and see how I like it then (can’t wait to put that loveseat back in the sunroom and bring in my new sofa)!
I also picked up a couple of burlap pillows today at T.J. Maxx for two of my kitchen chairs….of course, these are subject to change too!
My appeals hearing is set tomorrow via teleconference regarding my job loss in May. Please keep your fingers crossed things go well….I’ll be posting about the outcome just as soon as I know.
