I have learned over the years to avoid buying furniture in haste. These pieces are not like bags or clothes which I can just toss into the forever expanding closet. As I have to look at them day in and day out, it's wiser to look carefully before making the final choice. So I am looking now for a side accent chair to add to the grouping of Noguchi table, Le Corbusier lounge chaise (truly relaxing) in black and a long 60 inspired sofa in beige. I adore classic modern furniture pieces and believe these will grow with me. In decor, I tend to pick simple furniture pieces and use decorative pillows, and accents to jazz up the space. After all, it's easier to change pillows and vases than a sofa. I have personally tried these chairs in the showroom and can't decide on the final piece. 1. Barcelona chair $4328 --- One of my all time favorite chairs!
2. Egg Chair $5934
3. Eames Lounge and Ottoman $3699 and up --- I can curl up and read for hours in this. Savvy Mom's favorite!
4. Flight recliner in fabric $1800 (image 1~ 4 via Design Within Reach) --- My friend has them and these are divine for reading.
5. Archer Chair $999
6. Wegner Wing Chair $4775
These pieces are costly but sometimes if I think about it, I will spend $2000 on a bag and use it maybe a month out of the year so why shouldn't I spend $3000 on a chair which I will use daily for 10 years or more. The cost per use is actually quite low. So do you invest in furniture pieces too?
