My second purple living room chair finally arrived! The first chair and the new ceiling light arrived about two weeks ago, so I’ve just been waiting. And waiting. I was beginning to think I was never going to get that second chair, but it got here Tuesday. So here’s the progress on the living room…
These purple chairs are the Sandy Wilson Home Corina Accent Chair in Purple. They are gorgeous, and they are hard to find at a reasonable price.
I had originally purchased one from Jennifer Taylor Home. It was shipped immediately and arrived at the beginning of July. But they only had one in stock, so I had to find another one elsewhere. Every place I found these chairs in purple only had one in stock. I ordered the second one from Home Depot, but after ordering it around June 25th, and then waiting five days past the delivery date (after calling and checking on it three times and being told it was coming), I finally cancelled that order and ordered from Amazon.
I had previously checked the price on Amazon, and it was about $100 more than the Home Depot price. But then on the day I decided to cancel my Home Depot order and find the chair somewhere else, the price on Amazon was $200 less than the Home Depot price!! So I got it for about $390 with free shipping.
Now, for a reason I can’t explain, the price of this chair on Amazon, via the exact link I used to purchase mine, is $996.58. That’s $600 MORE than what I paid!! I have no explanation for that.
But anyway, I’m very pleased with these chairs, and Peeve has claimed one of them as her own. The purple is gorgeous.
This room is very close to being finished. Obviously, I need some finishing touches — pillows, lamps, etc. And I’ll still be using that floral fabric in here, so that fabric with all of its colors will bring all of the colors in this room together.
Here’s the view from the kitchen…
And I also still need to figure out what to do with that scalloped mirror on the left. I originally made that mirror for the music room, so the color was selected specifically for that room. It seems like a bit much for the living room, but it does coordinate with the shades on the entryway wall sconces, and the floral fabric has that green in it also. So I might wait and then make a decision about it after I get pillows made and other finishing touches in place.
I also need to hem the curtains. The whole puddling thing isn’t working out for me because Felicity (whose head you can see poking up behind the sofa in the picture just above) loves walk and run behind the curtains, lie down on the fabric, etc. It’s getting really annoying having to re-puddle them all the time.
So I still have some things that need to be done before this room can be called finished, but it’s getting there!
