living room chair options

Thursday, May 8, 2014

 
We desperately need more seating in our living room.  Two matching arm chairs have always been on my Nice to Have list, but once we moved into the new place they moved up to the We've Gotta Do Something list.  I'd also like for them to be nice chairs that we can get a lot of longevity out of. 
 
I'm thinking gray for a few of reasons: 1) I don't want the chairs to match the couch; 2) I want upholstered vs. slipcovered and a darker color would help hide any accidents; 3) it could help tie in the dark gray curtains I have up in the dining room and master bedroom; and 4) it's a neutral and could be worked into décor changes.
 
Here are the top three I'm thinking about in the space.  I'll end up bringing down a little accordion table from Sam's room to place between them, and will add pillows.  But for simplicity, here's the plain chairs.
 
| Thurston - My favorite as far as looks go, but I have no clue how feels/sits in person.  Reviews seem positive. |

| Cardiff - Love the tufted back and nailhead trim, but it wasn't the most comfortable.  Maybe the right pillows would help |

| Carlisle - SUPER comfortable, but is it boring? |
 
Oh, and I also need new couch pillows, so I cropped in some of those as well so it helps with picking the chairs :)
 
What's your favorite???

  1. i like the first option stylistically, but i would go with 3 and here is why....
    they are comfy and when you are in the kitchen they aren't high profile so they won't block your view and you can stil easily chat with who is in the living room.

  2. My favorite is the Carlisle. I like that they are comfy. I don't like the first ones because of their height. I feel like it blocks the kitchen area too much.

  3. I vote for #3 for the same reason as Cassie - it won't block the view into the kitchen. Love your color choice as well.

  4. I vote for the the Thurston. They add a bit of elegance without seeming too stuffy. And I love the high backs!

  5. I vote #3 for the comfort factor and lower profile. As others have said, the others are beautiful but block the view to the kitchen.

  6. I love a good tufted anything, period. The Thurston is gorgeous but it blocks your view. Finally, the most important thing is comfort. And really, the comfy ones look just as nice as the others when it comes down to it.

  10. I'm with the crowd, I like the first ones, but don't like how they block the view to the kitchen. I'm obsessing over tufting right now, and really want a tufted couch, but if they aren't comfy, I'd nix 'em. I vote number three. Love the color, love the feet, and if they're comfy too, win win.

  11. Option 3 in my opinion. They seem the least fussy and the most classic. You won't get tired of them.

  12. I like the carlise. I think the low profile will help it from feeling closed off from the kitchen. The backs on the first ones seemed too high to me and that the family room would feel cut off from the kitchen. either way, they are all nice looking chairs!!

  13. Oh I love all 3!!! I love big wingback chairs, but I do agree that option 3 will keep the space open.
