Apartment Basic: A Comfy Armchair

Apartment Basic: A Comfy Armchair

My mom found this basic, comfy armchair on craigslist and gave it to my husband and me as a gift. It's become everyone's favorite spot in the apartment, especially our dog's. Placed in a sunny spot that faces the window, it's a great place to sit and read or work on the laptop...

It replaced a stylish, but not-so-cozy orange shell chair that moved into our guest room/home office. The armchair holds up well against Otto's daily use, and the upholstery color blends well with the small amount of fur he sheds. It's not the flashiest piece of furniture, but we've come to love its sturdy, unassuming presence in our place. To add a little more color to our living room, we're looking into another comfy option: pillows and throws.

Do you keep one or two comfy armchairs in your living room, are you the type that prefers high-style side chairs, or do you mix and match?
