I’m a form over function type of gal. For my personal home, if a chair is really uncomfortable but super pretty, I’ll take two. Looks tend to rule the roost when it comes to furniture around here.
Yesterday, while looking for accessories for a client, I stumbled across this chair, on sale for $300.
It meets my criteria of being really cute and totally impractical. I would love to use it for the nursery. In some ways it’s practical…great price and it’s much more compact than all the gliders I’ve been looking at. The nursery is teeny tiny and so we can’t get one of those huge, massive gliders.
However, this gray tufted chair isn’t all that comfortable and it doesn’t rock. I’ve been told that rocking and comfort are a must. Baby is already making me choose comfort over looks. In no time, I’ll be sporting sweat pants every day (which sounds pretty awesome).
I think baby wins this one and the search continues. I’m thinking I’ll go for a vintage rocker because they tend to be smaller and recover it in a favorite fabric of mine (tbd). In a dream world, Amy Meier (who doesn’t know me) would read this post and give me her rocker in her adorable girl’s nursery.
Ah, to Friday dreams. Happy Friday everyone!
