The change of heart left me with a small dilemma; I needed another chair. Just as I was about to settle on a twin set, I noticed Sharon and Joe enjoying this very modern chair. I took it for a spin and really enjoyed it as well. I also loved the great floral pattern that made up the fabric. It was the texture I was looking for. After some more wandering through the massiveness that is Ikea, we finally made our way to grab our furniture. Unfortunately they were out of the fabric that I really enjoyed, so I settled for plain old black. It's growing on me, but I'm still quite sad about the lack of pattern. I know I can spruce it up with a vibrant pillow and all will be well :).
Furniture acquired, on to the house for setting up. Here is where the vision revision really comes into play. Not only had I changed my mind about the wicker chair, I got a very modern chair for our living room that I feel has more classic lines. After everything was set up last night, I started having doubts about the modern chair. It just looked so misplaced. I woke this morning convinced it would be going back. After sitting in it for a while, I really started enjoying the comfort of it. I mean, it doesn't look like much, but it is a really comfy chair. Joe and I ventured out today for a few more accessories, and I have to say I am really enjoying having a space to sit. With the addition of the chairs, I can finally say that I am done with the living room. It's cozy and it has changed from a very cold space to a much warmer space to be enjoyed.
