So as I mentioned in my post over the weekend, I am working on some furniture ideas for my new condo. One of my priorities is to swap out one of our two couches for a pair of lean, mean club chairs. They need to be cushy enough to really sink deep and relax in, but not oversized or overstuffed. I want something with very clean lines, no rolling arm rests or any funky shapes. I am thinking about 30″ or so wide, and no more than 34-36″ deep (preferably less). I found this one at Crate & Barrel and this dandy Humboldt chair at West Elm. If you know of any decently priced ($600 or less each is preferable) slim club chairs, give me a shout.
Also, I need to replace my beautiful vintage white melamine and pink wrought iron 48″ diameter dining table with something a little more compact. I have been looking at this line of extension tables from Italian co. Calligaris but there are probably some other great tables out there. I am thinking rectilinear… and preferably all wood, maybe metal but no glass or circa 1990′s ‘contemporary’ design, if you know what I mean. I am liking the Modern, Osaka, Vario and Zipp models on this site. I am happy to take other suggestions
