Re: Cute or Fug?

  • I think it looks cool.  However, it doesn't look very comfortable.

    Hmm.  If it is not comfortable, then I don't want it.

    I am looking for 2 accent chairs to go in the livingroom to put next to the electric fireplace we are going to add.  I want the chairs to be somewhat comfortable though.

  • It's the arms that make me think it might be uncomfortable.

    I love the look of it, but Adrea makes a good point.  But then, again, I don't sit in chairs correctly, so that might make a difference in my mind.  (I always sit with my feet under me, and leaning on the arm.)

    That is how I picture myself using the chair that I buy.  Curled up, sipping wine next to the fake fireplace. Stick out tongue

  • In the room, they will be really cute. However, they will probably end up being the chairs that everyone comments on, but never sits in. You'll have people crammed four on the couch and on the floor before people sit in them. They remind me of a beautiful black leather club chair that we have that no one sits in because they think it's "off limits" and basically for company only type of thing. I would say if they aren't insane expensive to get them, but if they are a lot of money, invest that money instead into a really comfortable chair.
  • They are $375.  I thought that was a pretty good price.  Thoughts? 

    I just started looking.  I did find some chairs that I love that are $900 each.

  • That chair looks like a big bloody nose on a sweet little face waiting to happen. The edges look pretty rough.

    LOL

    I like them, but I have zero style so take it with a grain of Salt.  I thought my Ikea Poang chair was pretty hip when I bought it LOL

  • It looks like the seat is too long/deep, so you have to sit way back in it to be comfortable, and then it also looks like the back is at too much of a reclining angle to really work (for me, anyway).

    *I* have zero style.  I want to change that.  Or at least fake it with the new house.  Stick out tongue

    There's what I'm thinking too.  They look very mod and cool, but not very practical.  And it sounds like you really want to use them for sipping wine, lounging and such. If they were just going to be accent pieces for people to look at, I'd say go for it. 

    The color seems a bit drab to me, and I'm not trying to be offensive with that comment.  If I remember correctly, you have a tan or brown sofa, right?  Why not punch it up with some color or design to really add some dimension to your room?  For example:

  • Kerco - I agree about the "drab" color.  We will be buying a new couch for the livingroom, and my H is deadset on brown leather.

    I love that first chair you posted.  Where is it from?  Thank you!

  • Overstock.  It's less expensive than the one you picked out and $2.95 to ship.  Bonus!
