Last summer we bought a new chair for our family room.
It's the Voltaire Lounge Chair from Home Decorators.
I had my eye on it for awhile and waited until they had
a really good sale to buy it.

The image below is how it looks on their website.
The color is called natural linen but it's really
more of a light gray than it appears on their site.
I was a little disappointed by that but otherwise
we have been very happy with the chair and it's
really very comfortable.

I like that it has so many nice details like the tufting
 and the nailhead trim on the arms.

My favorite detail is the wooden feet with the casters!

I know I sound like a commercial for Home Decorators but
 unfortunately they are not paying me for this post.
Just wanted to show you my chair and mention
that sometimes it is worth taking a chance to purchase 
furniture that you have only seen online.
I think it can be very scary but sometimes you can
get really good deals.
The total that we paid for this chair came to just under $300.
 Not too bad.

By the way, the little pillow is by Cath Kidston and I 
 purchased it from Ebay ~ I think it looks really cute on the chair.

Have you purchased any furniture that you have only seen online?

  3. I love the chair it looks so pretty and comfy to sit in and relax.

  4. I love your new chair JoAnne! I looks very comfortable and I love the little pillow you added. : )

  5. I love that chair! I'm always afraid to order online because it's so difficult to see the color. I just did a post about chair shopping last week. :) It's hard!

  6. Good for you for taking a leap of faith and purchasing a chair on line. Very glad to hear it was comfortable, unlike many chairs in stores which look good but are hard as rocks.,BTW was the shipping real expensive? Or reasonable?

  7. Gorgeous chair, the detail really is amazing. I would love for you to link up to my ongoing Inspire Me Tues. party - - - Hope to see you there. Hugs, Marty

  8. The details really are so beautiful. Fantastic find!! Your walls are the same beautiful shade of blue that I have in my bathroom. Such a happy color!! Have a wonderful day!! : )

  9. Darling chair! I love the gray....enjoy!

  10. I am nervous buying big ticket items online, not that I often buy big ticket items. I am looking for a blue and white quilt and found one I really like. It is much more than I want to spend and I hesitate buying it in case I don't like the fabric when I touch it. But, the internet opens up the possibilities for us.

    I love your chair design. It is more formal than my funky little cottage, but so pretty.

  11. Beautiful chair…love the tufting on it…timeless!

  12. THANKS!!! I am in the market for chairs like this too and since I need's kind of a scary purchase on line but the only way to go with free shipping!
