The Club Chair

My husband is a no frills, comfort seeking, kind of guy. The first time I went to his house I was impressed that it was fairly clean and furnished for a bachelor pad, but I couldn't help but being taken aback by one particular piece of furniture. It is a denim blue colored chair straight from the early 80's. It is so worn that there is absolutely no support in the seat. The material is this velvet-like polyester that really creeps me out. The saddest thing is that the design is so dated it cannot even be reupholstered to make it more up to date.

Basically this chair and I have become enemies. Everytime Nic asks me what we should purchase next for our place I always say, "The blue chair NEEDS TO GO!" The hard part has been finding a chair that I like the style of and that Nic thinks is comfortable enough for his afternoon naps and hours of watching the news (love you honey!). So I would like to introduce you to the club chair. A chair that will quickly become your husbands favorite seat in the house!

The club chair is a an excellent piece for a family room. You can buy one in leather or upholstered in fabric; although I find leather to be the more traditional way to go. It has a lower back than a wingback chair so it is better for smaller spaces... it takes up less room visually. Club chairs always have arms, making it great to really relax in. I prefer a nice oversized club chair with a pillowy back and big padded arms. Have fun with your chair. Maybe buy two in different colors to create an eclectic grouping for conversation. Consider your different options like tufting, nailhead trim, various feet designs and find a chair that blends best with the style personality of your home. Here are some chairs that I really love and are in the running to be our next furniture purchase!

Nic and I found this great chair at a local store in Utah called Osmond Design. For the chair to be made of good quality leather we thought the price was great! This is a piece that could go in our family room or in the office. When I purchase furniture I like to know that it is flexible and we will be able to grow with it once we move to our new home and start a family.
