For Kat O+


This is a La-Z-boy. Basically a huge style-less man chair that reclines, can come with heat and vibration (which ours does and let me tell you, Bob can't get near it when I'm PMSing)

I thought I even picked a nice fabric and when it showed up I just about started to cry with horror. (This isn't ours, it's from their site but I now have TWO of these!)

We have our original chair and then Bob had asked for his father's chair and received it after he passed last summer. So I have a mossy green one and a bright blue one side by side in our den. Since I decided it should be Bob's room, I can let it go. But I miss sitting in this chair and reading while feeling heat and vibration coursing through my body.

I just can't seem to relax in that room and it might be because it's right in the front window of our house. Also, our PC is in there and then I think about surfing the web and well, work. So for me, that room has enough going on.

So I'm determined to find a nicely styled piece of furniture that is also cozy for the living room. The living room has no TV, or electronics and the room goes from the front of the house to the back so I can sit near the back of the house and feel protected and private.

I used to be able to read anywhere but I think I officially have to many distractions to pull me from reading nowadays. No wonder Attention Deficit is on the rise. I think even I am starting to feel overwhelmed by all the options!

Thanks! :-D If I had a chair half as comfy as yours looks, I'd never get any work done.

We have them here. I think they are just called recliners.

I have two black leather ones that are very comfortable!

My friend has a beautiful, sort of big winged chair with a huge matching footrest that is very comfortable. I can read in her chair as well when I'm at her house. You might just go to a furniture store and try out all kinds of options.

Amy and I were looking up chaise lounges online a week or so ago and wow. Some of those things looked very comfortable. I started out the hunt actually trying to find a picture of fainting couch. They are all over the web, apparently. ;)

I have one. Although, I don't sit in it very often ~ I have a better view of the TV from my couch :-)
