A few weeks ago, my doctor recommended I buy a recliner to use when I am not standing,working or tap dancing (well, ok, I don't tap dance, but you get the idea). Although I am not a recliner fan, it was strongly suggested, so recliner shopping I went. Mr. Bluebird loves his wing back recliner - and since his was starting to show some age - we decided to buy a pair of them. (As if one recliner wasn't bad enough! You know how some of you feel about ceiling fans? That's sort of how I feel about recliners. Times ten.)
But I am an obedient patient and with Mr. Bluebird in tow, we hit up a few furniture stores and finally found a style we both liked. It was kind of a Goldilocks adventure - too big, too small, etc. This is a picture of the recliner that we finally picked out and also the fabric.
A closeup shows just a hint of blue on the chocolate brown background. The fabric name is Veronica Mocha. Although I don't use much blue in my decor, I'm really kind of liking this little bit.
I was happy to find fabric swatches for our existing furniture at the store and was able to see them together. Below is a fabric swatch of a little settee/loveseat that is in our room.
The plaid is the fabric of our sofa and club chair.
I know all the neutral folks out there might think this is mega mega MEGA pattern overload, lol! But first of all, it has me written all over it and I really think it is going to work in my room. Secondly, I just know it's going to work! (I know that my "firstly" and my "secondly" basically state the same thing, but that's all I've got!) I had set out to buy a sensible, neutral pair of recliners but I.just.couldn't.do.it.
I am anxiously awaiting the call that my chairs are in and they will be delivered. It will probably be several weeks or even a month. I am hoping it will be worth the wait!
Before I go, I will tell you that I am eventually planning on sharing why my doctor
forced urged me to get a recliner as I think my story might be helpful to some of you. I am not quite ready to go there with you all, but I will.
I thought I would share some artwork changes in the area where the recliners are going, but this post has gone on and on and ON, so I will save that for another time.
Thanks for stopping by,
