Popping in with a little lake house basement family room update today! If you’ve been following along for a while, you know we have new furniture upstairs. So, everything upstairs came downstairs in a little round of musical chairs.
Just like musical chairs, there were a few that didn’t make the cut. Specifically, the beloved white armchairs from my mom that I have had several hundred requests for the source (she had them made years ago at a local shop so sorry I can’t help you out.) They just weren’t working out in this space. They were way too formal, and not practical for my kids to use every day.
I moved one into our master bedroom, and the other went to my brother’s house for his daughter’s room. So, they are getting yet another new lease on life.
The hunt began for something to replace the chairs! I was looking for a less formal, comfy oversized chair that would be great for movie nights or curling up with a good book.
Sixpenny Home asked to partner with me to share their furniture. I was so excited because the Neva chair was exactly what I had been looking for.
Oversized. Super comfy. And slipcovered in case we have any mishaps. Although the fabric I chose is dry clean recommended, it’s nice to know that’s an option for any major stains.
This chair is available in a ton of fabric options, but I wanted a little darker tone to camouflage dirt. I went with the Lightweight Linen option in the color Ink Cap. I love the casual vibe of the linen, and the color is a nice contrast to the new carpet.
It’so comfy my kids are trying to convince me we need to buy the matching couch! If I have to break up one more fight over who’s turn it is to sit in the chair, I might just do that! ;)
Whoever does finally claim the coveted throne as their own will have to share with Charlie. He has officially claimed it as his designated napping spot, but he will begrudgingly share…provided you rub his tummy.
You can check out all the great furniture at Sixpenny here. They have a lot of beautiful options to choose from. The ordering process was simple, delivery was fast, and the white glove service was an added bonus.
Things are still a work in progress down here. I still need some side tables, a lamp, and a few more accessories before I complete the space. I’m also thinking of going with a coffee table rather than an ottoman. I thought an ottoman would be practical for the kids. However they keep spilling snacks on it all the time, so I’m thinking a hard surface coffee table may be the way to go. I love how cozy it is down here with the new chair, and it’s been a great rainy day hangout space for our family!
