Tonight, I went out to replace a purse that was destroyed. I ended up in a discount department store that I'd been in on Sunday, and didn't have any better luck with their purses today than I did with their ottomans. Except, today there were new ottomans that caught my eye.
Even better, those new ottomans reminded me of a clearance chair I'd seen at another furniture store on Sunday. So, I bought it and crossed my fingers that the chair still hadn't sold (it hadn't). The colours weren't quite as perfect as I remembered, but they're close enough. So, I have a new chair and ottoman, curtesy of the insurance company.
Not only does this provide comfortable seating for the library, the style reminds me of my grandparents. They always had Bergere Chairs in their house, so this reminds me of them.
The red is bold - I'm a little worried that it makes the room look Christmasy with the green dresser and picture mats - but I'll live with it for a while before change anything. I'm hoping that all the different colours of the books will tie things together. Or, maybe I'll paint the dresser in a robin's egg blue.
And with the bright contrast his white hair, something tells me that Winter has found a new favourite seat.
