In my home, space is at a premium. Because my living room was divided into two rooms to create a dining room, neither of the two rooms are particularly large. This lack of space does not leave much room for furniture that goes unused, but there is one piece that fits this criteria with which I can not bear to part. My beloved Wassily chair, pictured above, while attractive, can not compete with the less picturesque plush sofa that gets used constantly. Obviously, furniture must toe the line between comfort and style, but what happens when one outweighs the other? As can be seen in the photo, despite the addition of a soft throw, even the dog objects to the Wassily. But regardless of the lack of space and the rare use of the piece, I will be keeping my chair.
Is there a piece in your home that you never use but refuse to part with?
Here, in a happier moment, Luna enjoys the sofa.
