I am very inflexible with my clients when it comes to this Man Chair...If you have to lay that far back you should be in bed.;) So the chair can go in the study or library...and in an area that your visitors see you can add one of those fabulous chairs you have designed....Very nice
Great post Sally, I think what you are doing is the perfect answer. I like you try to do the chair and ottoman. I did that in my own home and it is everyones favorite chair. I like the addition of the hounds tooth.I have a brown leather recliner in my den but it looks very much like the chair that you have posted as looking better,hehe.When shopping for chairs I tell the wives do not let your husband sit in the marshmallow chair because that will be the one you will have to take home. Only show them chairs to sit in that you even want to consider.Have a great day today and thanks for your sweet comment this morning, Hugs Kathysue
I am SOOOO with you on this one, Sally! Can't wait to read more of your blog.
Great post. My husband loves a man chair, the puffier the better. (That's what I call the ones with the extra poufy part, puffy chairs.)I would draw the line at the wooden lever thing and that pouch on the side, never!
We have a man chair....it is not leaving us. It has moved in forever and, unless my other half decides to go somewhere else, the chair stays. Its big, its ugly and its all leather puffiness. Yuck. He wonders why I am in a bad mood over the living area? Why are you staring at my chair and looking at swatches? How do you incorporate a man chair is beyond me...now 8 years later. BTW it was his first purchase using my bonus money from work. NIce.
Just found your blog through your FB comment....and glad I did. I am actually moving to Dallas later this year and glad to see another Dallas blogger!Re: the man chair....I really hate the thing....the top image and the similar sofa make me CRINGE. I often suggest some of the recliners from Norwalk (get them through Charles Ray Showroom here in DC) for a compromise. I think your solution looks great!
Blogs are all about the dialogue. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
