In the previous post, I show the leather chair I ordered last week. Patti Abbott (her fine blog is HERE) posted a comment that her husband has one that is similar and that he loves it. That got me thinking: is a big ol’ comfy leather chair a guy thing?
I’m going to be using the chair in a room with a lot of books, and it’s intended to be primarily used for reading or browsing, or perhaps listening to music. But what I had in mind was a chair like unto one might find in the library of the Diogenes Club.
Would most women prefer something smaller, or a chair with fabric instead of leather? Perhaps it’s a matter of style, the classic club or lounge style leather chair is fairly large and has a pretty specific shape and style. I know wife who is 5’6″ prefers a chair that’s less deep and tall, so she has back support and her feet can be firmly on the floor when she’s sitting. So there’s that, and there’s leather, and there’s style. What do you think?
