Let Me Know What You Think!

My husband is always talking about wanting a recliner in our family room.  We have had  couple of Lazy Boy recliners in the past but not since living in this house.  When I bought my new couch from Calico Corners I had them recover my swivel rocker instead of buying a new chair.  It's really not a very manly chair.   So I decided for his 60th birthday which is this Friday if I could figure out how to rearrange things to fit a recliner that is what I would buy him.  After he left for work one morning I moved my round table out of the way and put the swivel rocker in it's place.  I was kind of surprised it didn't look that bad.  I have no place to put the table but that's okay.  Having a kitchen/family room combination presents problems since you have less walls for furniture placement.  


I found a really nice recliner in a traditional style on Calico Corner's web site.  Unfortunately it wasn't available in leather.  I figured if I'm going to get him a manly chair it should be leather.  After doing a little research online I found the perfect chair from Ethan Allen almost identical to the Calico Corner's chair. 
It looks like a comfortable chair for a man doesn't it?
I ordered it in red leather with the furniture nails. 

Thanks for visiting today.  I would love to hear your opinion!

  6. Oh what a wonderful wifey you are!! You KNOW he's going to be sooooo happy with that! AND, the red is a perfect choice to go with your decor. Just throw a pillow on it if company comes by and you want a bit more fancy look! Of course he's going to have to get you something just as wonderful for your next birthday!!! Great choice and happy birthday to him!
