-we only have one living room, which is also our family room
-we have a dog that sheds
-we have a toddler
-we pretty much live and do everything in that room
-i'm already tired keeping my cream colored couch covered 24/7
So, here is what I was considering before (still am but it will have to wait till we have a separate living room):
And surprisingly enough, here is the leather chair we went with. Completely different than what I had envisioned. But the one I picked is a dark, aged brown that looks worn (see last picture below) and slightly smaller in size (they only had the big one on the floor at the store). The story behind why I went with this one is that if I was going to get a leather chair then it would have to be THE most comfortable chair ever and it would have to look a little modern. I looked and looked everywhere for that one chair and always kept going back to the Turner chair at Pottery Barn. I think my husband thinks this is going to be his chair.....but yeah, I don't think so!
Anyway, the chair arrives on the 23 and I can't wait!
Here is a picture I took while at the store while Carter dirtied up the white couch and I stood there for 2 hours trying to decide if I wanted to make that investment....leather isn't cheap!
The color is the same as what I got.
