Everyone needs a special spot for some solitary time - a place to sit, think, read, sip some tea or, as in my case, sit and nurse a baby. Below, is a photo of the chair in my office. I bought it at a consignment store last July as a birthday present to myself. It has some bumps and bruises, but I love it. It is very comfortable and, I think, beautiful.
P.S. Barcaloungers are comfy, yes - but beautiful, they are not. They will never ever EVER be beautiful and they don't belong in your home. This is why God invented Craig's List: somewhere there's a college kid who needs a Lazy Boy to put in front of his play station. Sell your recliner and instead, opt for something that has both comfort AND style. When it comes to choosing a chair for your own little meditative nook, you might look to some of the following photos for inspiration.
