The Accent Chair Obsession

Ok I'll admit it. I'm obsessed. OBSESSED. With accent chairs. From the moment we bought our house 1.5 years ago I have dreamed of two lovely accent chairs in front of this double window (behind the arm chair). There is quite a lot of empty space, though this picture does not show it. And it drives me crazy. We need more seating in this room. Confession: When we have lots of people over Garth grabs lawn chairs from the deck to sit. Yes, I said lawn chairs. It mortifies me and is why we NEED accent chairs.


I'm done being dramatic now. So why haven't we purchased said accent chairs? Sure I have seen plenty of chairs that I like. But never loved. Like $300 loved. That is a lot of money for two little chairs. I don't care how pretty they are. Then I saw this beauty at Target last year.


Swoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon. I can get TWO of these lovelies for $300 TOTAL. Steal! And my birthday is coming up... I just don't know. I am so indecisive. Accent chairs for my birthday or a trip? I'm all about experiences and making memories, aaaaaand I have an empty house to prove it!

I think I may talk Garth into these chairs for my birthday and take a day trip to Lake Michigan. Then plan a  nice fall vacation when the rates are half what they are now and after the marathon. Yes, I think we'll plan on that!

I have two accent chairs in my second living room. I honestly rushed into them and they aren't what I want. The best thing when shopping for furniture...Take your time!

We use lawn chairs too ...and any other random chairs in the house. It's terrifying -- I feel your pain! Haha!

as long as you like the setup I don't think there's anything wrong with the lawn chairs! we've definitely been known to use folding chairs for our seating at times!

and a trip would be so much more fun!
