Lazy Boy...Retro Style

 My husband has been pinning for a recliner....
But our space is limited and most are rather large and cumbersome...
The moment he saw this turquoise retro beauty at a nearby vintage store...
...he just had to have it!

 What do you think?   Does it work?
It is in perfect condition...and is very comfortable!



 One of our kids said it looked like a "grandpa chair"...another said
"Open your mouth for the dentist"!
A third said that it looked as though it came right out of a hospital room. 
But then again my niece, another daughter and a friend of mine loved it...
(at least that's what they said)
I guess its a matter of preference....
So tell me...I can take it...what do you think???

Staying Cozy, 
Carrie

I think it is awesome. The color is perfect. It's not crazy big like some. I love it. Your room is so nice. Love all the pillows and the baskets.

Normally at the mention of a recliner, I break out in a cold sweat! I must say that this retro one would actually be very welcome in my space...great find!!

Diane Mars said...

I think it is very cool, and all you need to do is add more of that color here and there and I think it is a perfect fit. I wanna see a picture of hubby in it next time! oxox

Looks O.K. to me and if he really likes it, well, let him have it!

It's a favorite color of mine.
I have to admit it does look like ones I've seen in the hospitals.
But I still like it!

You just wait and see... the chair will become everyone's favorite!! They will be fighting over it before long. I think it looks great and it makes the blue color in your curtains 'pop' out!

Holly- Girls At Heart said...

Wow, whoever owned that chair before must not have known any children! :) It's in such great shape! I agree with Dianne, add that same color to the room- maybe some throw pillows and it will be perfect! ♥

Well since I just painted my kitchen in that color...I like it, it is cheerful...enjoy!

I like it! I think it gives a nice pop of color and brings out the color in your window treatments. I love the eclectic mix of pillows you have...very nice!
