my parents just bought new chairs for their den, so they bequeathed their old leather chairs to us. yay! free furniture!
My husband requested we put one in the family room. I thought the room was fine the way it was but, boy, I didn't know what I was missing. It looks great in the room. I was afraid there wouldn't be enough clearance to walk from the kitchen into the family room.
There is definitely enough room and even though the couch and chair are overstuffed, it actually makes the room feel cozy – and complete.
The husband loves it and it will be the perfect place to read a book by the fireplace come winter.
Thanks mom and dad!
