Perry sent us an email: Lately I've been selecting comfort over style. I've got a pair each of Eames and Saarinen chairs that look great but they're not a chair someone wants to sit in for long periods of time. I also have pairs of both of these old funky chairs....

I bought the red upholstered one from urban ore for $35 each and the slipper chair from craigslist for $20 for the pair. I think the red upholstered chair can be cool if the frame was painted and reupholstered in a modern fabric.

Will 2 of these be too much? I'm not sure about how I feel about the slipper chair. The style of my home is simple, modern, Room & Board aesthetic with a lot of neutral colors. These chairs are way different for me and our home and not sure if they are trash or treasure? What do AT readers think?

Please share your thoughts with Perry in the comments below...thanks!
