searching for a new chair

smitten studio chair guideLike I said last week, I am now on the hunt for a new chair to sit along side our new blue sofa. Here’s a round up of some of my favorite upholstered options that are out right now.

The new chair will be heading for that empty spot between the TV console and the chaise side of the sofa (where we used to have the two yellow ones).

Maybe it is my background in painting (When I first went to college I started taking classes towards a BFA degree in painting before switching to graphic design two years in), but I love a good heavy brushstroke pattern.
