Tap, tap, tap. Is this thing on? It is? Ok then, let’s get started. I thought that for my very first post I would talk about my absolute favorite piece of furniture in our house. That this furniture became my favorite happened as kind of a wonderful accident. When hunky and I were moving into our current home, we realized we need to fill up some of the additional space we were acquiring with new furniture. If you know me, I am not too flashy, enjoy neutral colors and like traditional furniture with clean lines. However, I wanted an accent chair for our living room. We came across a lovely paisley fabric that was a bit more bold than the usual patterns I gravitate to. You know how you only get a 1×1 swatch of the fabric, and are supposed to be able to visualize the furniture piece with the fabric on it? Not all that easy, if you ask me. Well, we decided to go for it: put that pretty paisley all over that wingback, baby. And, what could have been an uh-oh-this-chair-is-ugly-but-cost-a-fortune-and-is-mine-no-matter-what chair, turned into one of the best things I’ve done in decorating. We’ve already made a bunch of memories on this chair, and some of my favorite pictures ever of C1 and C2 were taken on it.
See what I mean? Worth the investment just for these three pictures!
I did some searching and found some pretty amazing accent chairs. They make a huge difference in a room, don’t they?
I just love the navy and gold combination in this room, and the subtle tone on tone pattern on the chair.

And be still my heart, the patterened rug and chair combination in this picture rock my world.
I love the simplicity of this chair and the fact that it adds a bit of texture, instead of a bold pattern. Not sure why, but it makes me think of spring.
So, what about you? Do you have a favorite furniture piece?
