My Reading Chair

I have always dreamed of having a big comfy chair by the fire and curling up in it with a good book. In almost every house we have owned we could not afford a big comfy chair or it lacked a fire-place. All of that changed with the move to our new house.

We moved in over two weeks ago and the corner by the fireplace looked  lonely. It was that moment I knew what was needed to make it better!  It would be my reading chair!

Over the weekend I dragged my family to furniture clearance sales until I found the perfect  one for me.

My husband looked at it, “Are you sure?”


“But it’s cream?”


“The dog. The Kids. You. Need I say more?”

“We can scotch guard it?”

“Does scotch guard protect from red wine?”

I gulped and told a little white lie, “Yes! And it will be my chair so no one is allowed on it!”

We have had my reading chair for a full three days. In that time the children have jumped on it to play their DS games, the dog  has taken many gaseous naps, and my husband lounges on it with his trusted Blackberry. I  have decided to place a reserve sign on it to ensure many late evenings of silence with a glass of scotch and a good book to get through the cold winter nights.

Do you have a favorite chair in your home?

  1. I have the exact same chair, but not that ottoman. Wonderful place to read, curl up with the tablet, even taking a lazy Sunday afternoon nap, the cat on the back and the dog curled into one of the corners. I love my chair!

  2. We used to have a lazy-boy recliner and all of us at various times throughout the day would find time to lounge around on it. It used to be my favorite place for little 20 minute catnaps. We don’t have the chair anymore and I haven’t had a catnap in who knows how long! It may be time to rectify that…

  3. What a lovely little corner! I’m glad your family is helping you out by making sure the new chair feels right at home. I’m *sure* they will hop right up with no fuss or fight when you are ready to sit there! 😉
