Despite the busy schedule happening around this house lately, something I have found plenty of time for is shopping particularly online shopping. I knew I wanted to work a pair of chairs or a nice size chair with an ottoman into seating in the living room/ dining room. During recent consignment shopping, I found a chair and ottoman that seemed perfect, but I was trying to wait for the next price drop indicated on the tag. The day after the date that the price lowered, I was there to get my chair, but it was gone. Oh well, I was not too upset because I had resigned that if it was meant to be then it would be there on that date at the lower price (particularly because it needed to be re-upholstered – which would’ve been a project), so obviously it was not meant to be.
Then two Sunday’s ago my mom text messaged me while I was doing homework that Target had chairs on sale, and they were in my color scheme. A little online searching, followed by some g-chatting with Max, and we had decided we both liked this chair. At the time, it was more on sale then is showing right now (with free shipping), and it seemed like a bargain compared to some of the other chairs we were seeing around. I decided to ‘mull it over’ a bit, and then impulsively purchased them (yes that means I bought 2) one day during lunch last week.
Well the package arrived today and in Zdunosmith household fashion they were quickly assembled for evaluation! Well at least one was until I stopped the presses. Then a ghost from my past appeared and my old ‘I’m afraid of patterns’ self just reared her ugly head. For those of you who didn’t know me before, I have in the past experienced difficulty embracing patterns and textures, but decided it was time grown into a new style which was more fearless. Needless to say, this has again left me in mull it over mode. I’m trying to figure out if the chairs go with the couch. Here is one piece of the chair on the couch, which has a slight pattern to it, with brown pillow:
Here it is with the rust colored pillows:
And here is the chair in potential chair location:
While I take the next few days to think it over, I’d love to hear if you think I’m just falling into my old – no pattern one texture way – or am I right to intuitively feel like maybe these things don’t go together?
