Okay, so when you get married, you become part of a team and make decisions for the betterment of the family and not just yourself. These decisions range from the important: life goals, jobs, where to live, how to raise your children, and whether to leave the toilet seat up or down (by the way, the answer is ALWAYS down); to the trivial: “of course I would rather watch ‘Teen Mom’ than the Giants game”; and finally to the stuff in the middle. These decisions don’t result in right or wrong and certainly don’t materially change our lives, but they do end up being the subject of hours of debate because I don’t just need you to say okay, I need you to agree with me 100% and think it is the most brilliant idea you have ever heard.
The placement of these beautifully crafted, comfortable, stylish, and all around awesome chairs definitely falls into the “middle.”
To be fair right off the bat, Mrs. P&V and I are almost always drawn to similar things when it comes to decorating, but her opinions on these stunning chairs have always vexed me a bit. By the way, many other things vex me too: what do you mean you can only have one shade of leather in a room? I am a guy… two leathers? three leathers? Bring it on! I have also been told that this chair matter boils down to a ‘one of these things is not like the other’ issue, our family room is a casual and ‘country’ inspired room, and the chair belongs in a more masculine room. While I concede that point, we don’t have an appropriate room (yet), so in the family room it stays. I have also been heartened and my case has been buoyed by the positive response the chair has received from you, dear P&V readers. (Can I bring you into some other debates I have been needing support in?)
I am currently negotiating to bring the chair’s twin home from Tahoe. Too much to ask….?
*For those of you who are interested, the chair was made by Hancock & Moore, but it was purchased at Napa Style, and, unfortunately, does not seem to be currently available. If you would like me to send you more pictures of my chairs, that can be arranged. (Just ask the Mrs.)
