Good Questions: Replacing IKEA's Tullsta Chair?

Good Questions: Replacing IKEA's Tullsta Chair?

ATDC reader Megan is looking for recommendations for comfortable chairs:

"I am looking to replace an Ikea Tullsta chair (pictured left) with a chair/ottoman combination for reading and general lounging. I'd love something in orange or green colors to match my room. I love Room & Board chairs, but the closest physical store is in NYC and I don't want to buy a chair online without sitting on it! Does anybody have good thoughts about places to buy chairs in the DC area? I've lived here for three years but have never been furniture shopping here, so I'm not sure where to start. Thanks!"

Megan,
We love the Martine chair from Crate and Barrel pictured below in green ($900) and the Karlstad swivel chair from IKEA pictured below in orange ($400). Both are super-comfortable but obviously the styles are quite disparate. Do any readers have green or orange chair advice for Megan?
