It has been a really long time since I have had new furniture.
A really long time!
I purchased brand new furniture back in 1997 when I got married (the first time) to replace the hand-me-down pieces we had for the previous 4 years. I had that set until I got re-married in 2004. At that time, my dad was moving down to Florida and he needed to get rid of one of his sets... and that's what I got. Again, not new, but new to me. We are still using that furniture set to this very day.
...And this is why I am so excited that I had the privilege of partnering with La-Z-Boy!
The awesome team at La-Z-Boy sent me their new Daphne Chair and a Half. I chose the Putty fabric which is a grey-ish beige. In some light it looks grey, but other times it looks like a really light beige.
"Looking for an easy-to-live-with look with a modern attitude, meet Daphne. She’s artfully styled with a contemporary feel and extra cushy cushions. Dress her up with our wide selection of custom fabrics and details including contrasting welt and accent pillows. Its accommodating comfort makes the perfect spot for relaxing with room for two or snuggling in for the night on a twin size sleep option. See the complete Daphne collection for additional matching pieces."
Speaking of matching pieces, I have to get the matching sectional so I can get rid of my mis-matched pieces in my living room. Isn't this beautiful? Mike is determined to get this whole set.
Would you like to see how my living room turned out? Now keep in mind, we will be pitching our old, ugly couch and chair in the garbage. Keep focus on my new Daphne Chair and a Half from La-Z-Boy. (I feel like putting my hands up on the screen to block you from seeing my ugly old couches haha). Excuse the toys. Okay, here is goes...
Did you notice how in some light it looks grey-ish and other times it looks beige-ish? (Is that a word?) In fact, the photo of my whole living room - the Daphne looks grey, but it's really not. In real life the color seems to match the beige in my old couch, just a lighter shade. I love the color!
The size is perfect too. It's a tad bit smaller than a love seat but bigger than a chair. In fact, you can see the size of our [old ugly] chair, it's much smaller than the Daphne Chair and a Half.
The cushion and pillows are so cushy! This is a very comfortable sofa. In one of the photos above, I am showing the fat pillow that you lean back on, it's huge and so comfy.
Overall, the Daphne Chair and a Half is really a beautiful piece of furniture, I would love to have the whole set. Mike and Baby Jack seem to have no complaints haha...
This was supposed to be my chair to lay in with Baby Jack and Gracie... but the boys stole it from me - although I have been caught working late at night while relaxing on it:
You can purchase the Daphne Chair and a Half at La-Z-Boy with the Putty fabric shown here currently for $1,119.
Be sure to follow La-Z-Boy on twitter @lazboy.
So what do you think of my new Daphne Chair and a Half?
Do you think I should purchase some sofa covers until I can get the sectional to match?
