>Think a tan leather chaise sofa with blue pillows would be a good fit?

That was my fist thought but that would be out of your price range I would expect to pay over 3 grand for one that was well made and comfortable. I would encourage you to go with a dark blue sofa with light woolen/tan pillows and throw and maybe a large tan leather ottoman, and the bench and consider that to be your under 2 k .

I'm doing a little floor plan based on the dimensions guessed from the photos, yes, that was basically what I gathered was your layout.

The biggest mistake that novices make is to not use a tape measure, a tape measure and color wheel is to a decorate what a baseball and glove is to a catcher. I don't expect you to know how to use a color wheel, but you need to measure before you purchase anything.

I am guessing they have a 74" sofa and there isn't much more room than that from the photos. Google 74" sleeper chaise blue.


Thanks for the style update, that will make it easier.

If you can right now, ring up some local furniture stores and ask if they have a 74" sleeper sofa with a left hand (window side) chaise in blue. Then go look at it sit on it and make a note if you like it or not.

I'm going to post this now, but I will add to it below this line in a few minutes.


Edit: continued.

I am going to encourage you to try and measure the distance in that space where the sofa is, right now if you can get in there. Because this is maybe the major weekend for furniture sales (Labor Day) and a great time to buy a sofa. There will be many sales on Monday that may or may not extend beyond. It would be a good time to shop as well, I ran across many sales on line. and take a tape measure with you when you shop. Seriously furniture stores will fuck up measurements just so you buy it.

I am not finding a lot of chase sofas in 74" and I am hoping an 84 might just squeeze in.

Here is what I ran across

Hephzibah Reversible Sleeper Sectional is 84" comes in blue, $559.99 42% Off $969.99 AllModern

Bozeman Reversible Sleeper Sectional, 84" I like the grey $619.99 44% Off $1,109.99 AllModern.

Jarreau Sofa Chaise Sleeper, sort of transitional, ~84" $699.99 Sale Price $419.99

LABOR DAY SALE (ends Thursday) up to 30% off* + an EXTRA 10% OFF* WITH CODE: LABORYAY10 online, Ashley Has local stores to try out the furnishings. It looks like the best one for the price.

FRIHETEN Sleeper sectional,3 seat w/storage, Skiftebo blue $599.00, has 3rd party slip covers But it's just over 90" wide. see the review.

I do not suggest overstock, the company is cwap. The contact and help is where they save you money: the customer care doesn't. overstock review.

Now with the bookcase, I made a mistake. I thought there was an easy option for a 4 seating dining and after looking closer there isn't just for a pull out desk (which is still an option)

I liked the idea of a cube bookcase repeating the square transom windows, and I know some come with desk variants.

Instead I would like to see a bookcase, or set of two or three and a dining table pushed up to it when fewer than 4 are dining, that could be used as a desk. The space "looks big enough for a dinning table, but not much. You could try a round table, which doesn't look as big when not in use, I fear that a square or rectangle table would dominate the entire space.

So that is why I made the suggestions I did, It really depends on the exact measurements. We like to have 3' between the edge of the wall and the table top for dining.

I am suggesting you get the smallest rectangle table possible for 4 person: 48" long by 30-34" wide. Then use it as a desk or console table when not dining and pull out the bench for two people's seating, and have two dinning/upholstered side chairs for the other two pieces.

If I didn't make clear, the current two club chairs do not work, They would work less with a chaise sofa, they don't have enough room and crowd out the entrance to the bedroom. An upholstered bench would create a better sight line and make that corner seem less crowded. It is possible you could fit two small round swivel chairs instead.

Room and Board has the Otis swivel chair in indigo or grey, or any of the Maxton textured at $800 ea, They have a low back and are 32" wide, probably narrower than the current chairs.


Their are also the office type usually not cheaper but you might find something like that used on Craig's List or at Reuse stores searching for swivel chair, you don't want desk chairs.

Another option would be looking at bucket dinning chairs.

West Elm had the Quilted Tub Chair, that was the perfect size and height.

Again from Ashley are Centiar dinning chairs in brown, at $90.00 Sale Price $53.99 each ($107.98 set)

Pandora Modern Button Tufted Bonded Leather Dining Chairs in white (Set of 2) on sale at Houzz (pronounced whose?) 47% Off You save: $147.17 $165.39 for two, its quite a deal for leather! Unfortunately they don't have it in tan.

This compares to the Milania (corrective grain) Leather at Amazon, $126 for two in white.

Or the Giantex Leisure Armchairs PU Leather composite, sturdy? at $155,

You might find something you like in leather at Amazon, but mostly I'm finding faux.

Hennessy Upholstered Dining Chair in brown @ Allmodern $175.99 was $599.00 71% Off, Is insanely priced for the hand stitched quality and should last you a life time. It may seem pricey, but if you save on the sofa these chairs would be a stand out. They are certainly classic modern and won't last at that price, Of all the chairs I looked at tonight, these are the ones I would buy on impulse.

In summery, my picks are two of the Hennesy chairs (last above) and the blue Hephzibah sofa (first in the list) if you have 84" to work with for a total of $1322, leaving you room for accessories, lamps, etc. I think that is good on your budget.

Last, here are the plans I drew up. I would be surprised if the dimensions are too far off. mostly this is just the lounge and dining.

For the bedroom I was suggesting, I'm going to have to comment more on that later, as well as curtains.

For practical advice:

  • Check out r/malelivingspace. You seem like you might like this place.
  • 3M Command strips for everything.
  • These LED light bars are for under-cabinet lighting in your kitchen. They are motion sensing, so they make great task lighting when you need it and otherwise turn off. Can be used in other spots too.
  • Thread: How to make your place smell good
  • Thread: Stuff to put on walls
  • Get a plant
  • Get a small trashcan with a lid on it for the bathroom

    I'm going to make some assumptions. You can take or leave. This dark wood coffee table, and these chairs in the kitchen. Both are based on iconic designs, but you can find knock offs in several styles and prices.

    I think you should ultimately replace your TV stand. This Ikea bench stand is an easy swap.

    This photo uses 4x8 cube storage in black to look much nicer than the price would make you think. With black fabric storage cubes, it makes a nice book case or home bar. OP added some clever lighting to give a nice backsplash.
u/fedoradave · 6 pointsr/ScandinavianInterior

TL;DR: In terms of aesthetics I like simple trim, clean lines, and an emphasis on utility and the raw materials that went into building the furniture and home. This generally drops me into MCM and Scandinavian styles for furniture and industrial, exposed, and untreated styles for the bones of the home.

I like my seating to be firmer and simpler than most. This type of seating will keep you cooler in the summer and you can just grab a blanket or sweater in the winter to warm up. My dining/game table seats are ordinary lab stools, the type you can get in bulk for schools and actual labs. They're just grey painted steel and a linoleum seat riveted to the steel. My desk chair is one of those stools with a steel backrest. My two couches are firm IKEA couches (Karlstad and Ypperlig) that don't try to consume you when you sit in them. My girlfriend brought an accent chair from Amazon with her when we moved in together and it's my favorite thing to sit in - firm and supportive.

My three tables are all homemade using the extremely simple method of taking a wood product that wasn't a tabletop (such as a small door or cable spool side) and drilling/screwing hairpin legs into them. The company who makes the hairpin legs do great work and I love that they're based just a few hours from me. I chose to make my own tables because it's the simplest piece of furniture to build and most good looking tables on the market are incredibly overpriced.

Thanks everyone for all the positive feedback. Building the rig has been a fun process. A little history and details about this setup:

My goal was to make a rig that looked semi-presentable in our living room aaand use up some soft maple the was leftover from our recent kitchen remode. I have SolidWorks models of all the components except for the seat mount. I’d be more than happy to share the models/assemblies if desired. The unistrut base was the foundation to an adjustable rig that can accommodate all ages (I have young kids). The chair was a lucky amazon find. I looked for a looooong time for something that fit the rig, looked comfy, and seemed easy to modify.

So far the family approves...and so do I.

u/dippindool · 0 pointsr/RandomKindness

That's awesome of you! This is probably a reach, and it's totally more of a *want* rather than a need, but my desk chair broke and I've wanted a ghost chair like for months now. I was going to treat myself for my birthday but other expenses were a priority so I haven't had a proper chair for a while now. Anyway, if not, this is still super awesome of you to offer, and I appreciate your post either way.

u/speedycat2014 · 3 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

Right off Amazon! I had been contemplating a Louis style chair that maybe I'd keep in the room on its own... So I Googled something like that, ended up on Amazon and then ended up at this link (not an Affiliate link or anything: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CIQV6G6/ref=psdc_5264133011_t1_B005O9Z1RE)

So, this is called a "Ghost Chair" apparently. I posted the photo to FB and my stepsister who might as well be an interior designer immediately posted, "I love your Ghost Chair!"

I commended her for noticing and she said, "Of course I picked up on it! Philippe Starck references do not go unnoticed!"

I googled Phillipe Starck and found that he's like, the uber designer of this "Louis Ghost Chair" which is a fashion/interior design phenom. And I stumbled upon it! I didn't pay the stupid $450 for his chair, but apparently bought a knock-off from Amazon from $75 or so.

I just want to say this is the first time I, Ms. T-shirt and Jeans, have been recognized by my stepfamily for my FAB design choices! I'm feeling more girly pretty every day! (Seriously, am psyched.)

u/JennysLens · 1 pointr/HomeDecorating

With your wall and table color, you could really do any rug at this point. I would stay away from blues simply because your painting is more in the warm spectrum. A nice tan rug would be great if you like simple, or you could do any number of patterns that bring in the colors of the painting.

For chairs, I would also keep those simple because your tastes might change in a bit. I love the look of white chairs with wooden tables, but it definitely steers the look into a more farmhouse style. It seems like you are going for more of a vineyard style, so rod-iron chairs might be cool -- something like this

For the sideboard, I think black might be a good choice -- similar to what is under the picture of the painting. I would pick chairs first, then the sideboard or cart, then the rug.

u/ragnarockette · 2 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

Love the painting. I really think that shelf needs to go and it needs to be centered on the wall. If you can paint I would make that wall a dark charcoal so that painting really pops. It really is spectacular and deserves to shine!

If you don't use the stools I would get rid of them and focus on a dining set. A long wooden table and maybe some of these clear chairs would look modern and cool.

I also think hanging lights might be nice. If you're on a budget you can always do something like this that would look really cool!

If you want to maybe echo that more baroque/ornate feel, check out Craigslist and see if you can find a old oak dining table on there! I think the juxtaposition of an old, heavy table, and modern chairs always looks really good!

Put that silver skull on the center of the new dining table facing out.

u/puppiesonabus · 3 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

I think the chairs you suggested would look great in the room! The reds don't have to be exactly the same.

If your boyfriend isn't sold on the color, you could always go with something of a similar shape but different color.

u/BennaHenna · 7 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I'm going to include pricing because I got you, boo. The chair was not included in my budget because I feel with chairs, you need to splurge a tiny bit on those. I haven't had any luck finding really cheap ones.

Hampton Bay 3 Bath Bar Light from Home Depot. ($13)
You'll have to do the wiring yourself but don't get discouraged. It's a lot easier than it looks.

Globe Vanity Bulbs from Walmart. (I found a pack of 4 for like $10)

Writing Desk from Walmart. ($40)
I ended up using a glossy white paint because they only had it in black. White gives it that pricey look. If you're not good at crafty stuff like painting, you can likely find a white writing desk on Amazon for the same price.

Mirror I found at Ross. ($20)
If you don't have Ross, Tj Maxx and Marshalls are basically its equivalent.

Tabletop Make up Mirror, not sure what you call those things, also found at Ross. ($5)

The chair is from Amazon and surprisingly good quality. ($73) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SMM4H98/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_IKqEybXFJ68QG

u/yourmomismysidepiece · 7 pointsr/makeuporganization

I have a bad back-- I am VERY particular about chairs. I bought this chair for my desk. It's one of the most comfortable chairs I own. It's great for wide hips. My SO is larger and is very comfortable. It's sturdy, looks great, and is reasonable price! It doesn't have a cushion, but it's really comfortable to sit in for a while because it's so wide. You could also easily get a cushion for it if need be.

u/SDavis2702 · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

Hard to say. The black legs kinda throw me off. Makes me feel like the chairs should be metal, which isn't my usual preference.

I do think this type of chair could work: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075DCHX5G/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_sIIQDbDEMBAP7

And there are even color variations of that style. The black connectors on the bottom of the chair may help tie the look together since the table has black legs. But it also softens everything up a bit with the wood legs on the chairs.

I think chairs like that with a really nice decorative centerpiece on the table would be a great overall look.

u/KingKintsugi · 1 pointr/boardgames

Thank you so much for the detailed description!


My fiancee would really love more hidden storage since we have a lot of accessories that look like clutter (including the cupholders that I want to put away when not in use), and no where to currently hide them away. I agree, I prefer chairs.


What do you think? My current idea is to have a storage bench on one side, and 2 chairs similar to this on the other: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078SGDDJ1/?coliid=I1YLTEPZ6HVOC0&colid=2GD0Y14PLNZ1J&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it


That way, my fiancee and I can use the two chairs 90% of the time, and when we have guests over we can use the bench the other 10% (and offer the chairs to the guests).

They are super comfortable too.

The cage has to be next to the air conditioner which has to be placed next to the vent. Everything else is fair game.

I have bought this table:

And these chairs:

There’s about 35sqft of empty space behind the camera as well before reaching the kitchen.


u/Max-Ray · 1 pointr/boardgames

If you have Amazon Prime, i'd highly recommend these chairs. Hell, it might be worth signing up for Prime just to get the free freight. A friend of mine who finally got his Geek Chic table got several of these chairs. I had recently gotten a used table from Craigslist so I then ordered 4 of these.

u/Ninjakitty07 · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

That is lovely! Just my two cents, but I think a Louis Ghost Chair would look amazing.

u/[deleted] · 4 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

LexMod sells a beautiful version for less than $100!

u/rossatesta · 1 pointr/Secretlover3

I think if you set it off the ground a bit more, so the camera has a little more distance. ;-) I am thinking cinder blocks or something sturdy, and would be out of shot anyway. Though you may have to get a little stool to step up. That is the budget option. Of course you could get a nice one Amazon link Put it on your wishlist, maybe a fan might purchase it.

u/fsutan · 1 pointr/InteriorDesign

You're probably thinking of the mini model ghost chairs or the cost for the "chair" is 25, but there's a $75 shipping charge on top of that. Here is one I saw that was like that. This is a $25 mini chair.

u/GirlfriendAgeShifty5 · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

Not sure how far $2000 will get you. But you most definitely just have to paint everything white, including the kitchen because it flows into it.. the walls, the wood, everything, paint it all white. Next you have to replace the floor. I dont know what you will be able to do with the budget, but the laminate tile flooring through out is possibly the worst part. I would even just rip it up and put plywood down, then either stain it or paint it. Get rid of the clock, get rid of those weird vanity lights on the wall, get rid of the curtains and blinds. It will be hard to make this room nice on that budget, you will have to hit up kijiji/craigslist alot for stuff. Also, hit up etsy for some prints (make sure you frame them). Try and get a new sofa if you can, then also get an accent chair. Get some coffee table books, also a new coffee table. Get a simple rug to bring the place together. And get 2 stools for the counter. And lastly get some plants, if you dont want to commit to keeping them alive, get fake plants, doesnt matter. If you are in the US you can get some decent stuff off amazon.com that will make your place way better. Try things such as "george nelson slat bench (or table)... also maybe get these


and throw some sheepskin rugs on it from ikea.

I hope this helps man. The place has potential, but right now it looks like a ghetto university house. Not to sound rude.

u/im_unseen · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

not op but you can get one on amazon. this is probably the same thing: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00R3MWA6K/ref=tsm_1_fb_lk

u/heyiknowstuff · 3 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

My one major suggestion would be to not get a table and chairs for eating. I lived in a 450~ sq ft apartment and everything became way too crowded, and that was without a table and chairs.

We ate around the coffee table, get some chairs that you can tuck away in a corner but can bring them next to the coffee table when you got some extra guests over.

Get a bookshelf to place between your bed and the "living room" this will help separate your space and make it so your bed isn't completely visible when you walk in.

u/somethingmysterious · 2 pointsr/funny

Maybe get your mom the right one instead of the cheaper one.

u/Worksn · 9 pointsr/AmateurRoomPorn

No problem! Yeah they are both amazon! table
