Corners of Our Home 6

chair.corner 2

I am running out of corners. At least corners that are one's I want to photograph and share.

Can a chair be a corner? I guess if one could - then this would be the one. Again, acquired through D's family. We have somewhat of a love/hate relationship with this chair. We often speak of "getting rid of it" - it is large and hard to place in our space - but in the end I don't think we will ever part with it. I can't imagine what D's Dad was thinking when he purchased this - besides "How cool would this be..." It has speakers inside but isn't currently hooked up to our system. (To me it just seems to demand to be hooked up to a turntable and not anything but...) And it is a wonderful orange. (I ♥ orange!)

It is virtually impossible to hold a conversation with anyone while sitting in this chair. It is a reading corner, a quiet corner, a knitting corner, a late-night after the kid's are asleep TV watching corner... A corner that attracts everyone who as ever entered this room. A corner that many have been photographed in...

LOVE the chair! Orange just makes one happy, doesn't it?

This definitely qualifies as a corner, my Lord, this chair is big enough to be a room in itself!
Little bug looks perfectly cuddly in it!

Wow, what a chair! It seems like the plush seating of some sci-fi space captain type. If I was a kid in your house I would fight to get top seating rights in there.

Glad you saw the Living Etc link on my blog, I reckon they will flesh it out a bit over the next year or so. They have started a TV program too but I can't get it on my TV, yup, I'm STILL a 5 channel , and the 5th channel only if the weather is good! La folks couldn't believe it in the 80's so now it must be shocking.
