My new chair!

I caught you up earlier this week on what my living room looks like these days. I've been so excited about the progress & the changes!  One thing that I knew once we bought a new sofa was that I was going to need a new chair for the room for some additional seating. 
 Remember what we had & sold...
Although it wasn't what this room needed layout wise - it was perfect for large gatherings and Sunday afternoon naps.  We could get at least 5 college students on it when we had different events and meetings at our house.

So, the search was on for a chair to add to the room.  Since the chair is going to go here...

I had several things to keep in mind.  The back of the chair would be seen from the entry way and the chair needed to both serve as a part of the conversation group & also be able to view the TV as well.  That left one option in my book.

I needed a swivel chair.

I don't know if you're searched for swivel chairs lately - but if you Google that term you get a lot of this turning up.
I'm pretty sure I don't have to tell you that those aren't exactly the style I am going after.

Thankfully I knew exactly what I was after and where I could get it!  Best Home Furniture makes some of the most comfortable chairs around and best of all you can customize the fabric.  This great store near The Woodlands, TX carries this line (as do most baby/nursery supply stores). 

Thankfully they had several for me to sit in and test out (and also bring my husband back to do the same).  I finally narrowed it down to two options.

I needed the chair to have a skirt to hide the swivel mechanism and these were the two best options.  It all came down to comfort and the Quinn won out! Unfortunately, it doesn't also recline which was something my husband was hoping for.  Note to Best Home Furniture since I know they read this blog (haha!)

Then I had to decide between hundreds of fabrics.  I knew I needed a pattern since my sofa & existing chair in the room are both solid.  I went back and forth between two but ultimately knew that if I went with a neutral tone I could punch in color with throw pillows and blankets and change more frequently.

So, in 4-6 weeks I'm excited to have this in my slowly improving living room.

Do any of you own any Best Home products?
I'd love to hear from you!
