New Chair Don’t Care

Armless Side Chair in Indigo
Friends! We decided to celebrate the basements first birthday by giving it a new side chair — just what every one year old basement wants! Honestly, it didn’t go down like that. It was my intention to have a mid-century orange swivel chair reupholstered in a dark blue (that was about a year ago). However, doing something like that takes initiative and action, and it was obvious that we (I) were not showing one sign of follow through. Clicking internet buttons is just way easier. So, it was decided that purchasing a side chair would be better than waiting to see how long it would do to do the former. We are lazy jerks.

We were in need of something that offered comfortable seating, had a narrow profile (since we were limited on space), was affordable, and armless would be best. After eying all the chairs all over the internet, I became smitten with the bludot Field chair. As things that are well designed often are, it was WAY out of the price range. Lucky for us, West Elm has a chair with very similar lines for a fraction of the cost.

I’m pretty excited about the chair, it does a lot for the space. It adds the slightest bit of color, which was needed badly. I love all the black and white, but I like it even better with a little blue. The speckled indigo fabric did it for me, and I’m already getting real good at pushing buttons and swiping screens, so that there can be dark blue pillows and throws to compliment the chair. The chair also helps to break up the long narrowness of the space. Furnishing a 28′ x 12′ has been a tricky design dilemma, so I’m way for things that help to break up the longnessesosities. Oh, and it offers a place to sit, so super functional – sitting is a function!

Also, that little fan rules. We ordered it from Amazon at the beginning of the summer to help keep us cool on the front porch, since then we’ve ordered the large one as well and now they both keep us chill in the basement where we have no A/C. Highly recco.

Anyways, because I look at the internet a lot, I thought I’d post a few of my fav blue chairs that came up while I was searching for the basement’s b-day gift.

    I’ve been looking at West Elm a ton lately and that chair has been inspiring in me a thirst for some blue chair. Mm, delicious.

      I know! West Elm is upping their game again after a bit of blah time.

    Oh my goodness! I can’t believe a whole year has past since you finished your basement. Love the new chair and all the beautiful plants. =)

      Thanks, Amy! This basement is the only reason that we survive our winters ;)

    I just noticed this chair yesterday and am convinced I NEED it (I don’t) but I couldn’t see the blue in it. Now I do, thanks! Gorgeous space!

    • Scoops August 24, 2016

      Yes, it is such a good deal, you should totally consider getting it. The chair has become my favorite spot to chill in the basement.

    I love how the blue rounds out the tones in the basement, it looks like the perfect addition! Unrelated question about your rug… is it from RugsUSA, by any chance? I am eyeing that rug for my nursery and I’ve read the dozens of reviews that say it sheds relentlessly. How have you dealt with the upkeep of the rug (if at all)?

    • Scoops August 24, 2016

      It’s true, it does shed. I’ve had it for 3 years or so, and it just started to settle down around year two. I just vacuum once or twice a week to keep up with it. The kids make such a mess with their crumbs and kid stuff anyways, might as well clean up the dust bunnies from the rug while I’m at it!

    If you haven’t yet already – do check out the blu dot warehouse in NE Mpls, tons of bargains there and bonus, right next to Bauhaus Brew Lab!

    • Scoops August 24, 2016

      I will do that! I haven’t been there yet cause it seems like a mad house, but I will make it there some day!

  • Scoops August 24, 2016

    Such sage advise! Thanks for sharing your wisdom!

    This chair looks amazing! How is it holding up though? Debating whether to get it today as it’s on sale but I’ll have to buy it sight unseen. Thank you so much!
