Form vs. Function

I've had my heart set on the Wrap Office Chair from west elm for the longest time.


I'm so bummed to admit that it's just not comfortable! It's currently on sale, so I thought I'd finally purchase it and just make a cushion for it. But then I considered the cost of purchasing foam and an electric knife to cut it and decided it's just not worth it.

I was in Ikea today and tried out the Patrik chair that I have been eying for a few months, but it was also a little tough on the tookus.


I finally ended up with the comfy, cheap, and functional Karsten chair. It's OK. I think that I might recover that black base.

I'm still feeling non-committal, so I think that I'll pop into west elm one last time to give the wrap around and this chair one last sit before I assemble my new chair.

P.S. This chair in green is cute and comfortable, but it would have totally conflicted with my green walls.
