I think my kids might have mini-panic attacks when their couches disappear, but I think their own chair that swivels might be an adequate replacement.
Now, let's be realistic. I have an almost 4 year old, and almost 2 year old, a big furry dog, and a messy husband. This room is basically part of the kitchen. Milk is going get spilled. Snacks will be eaten. I will try to be super anal about the new furniture, and it will last about a hot minute before we curl up with popcorn and a movie. It's life. And it's why I won't buy expensive upholstery for the next million years.
First up is the Larkin Swivel Glider from Ballard. Love the navy stripe, which is machine washable. Also, they are 15% off right now. Shipping cost is $60 each.
Next up is the Birch Lane Allister Swivel Chair from Wayfair. Not as stylish, perhaps. But, $50 cheaper per chair, AND free shipping. That adds up big time. And even though I'm having to wait for a lottery win for this new seating, I still want to save some moolah. See the aforementioned furball, husband, and children.
Finally, I love the lines of Sam Moore's Azriel Swivel Glider.
However, I don't like the fabric selection as much, so I would probably do something neutral like pictured above. The price point is right in between the Ballard and the Birch Lane chairs, with free shipping.
Basically, I just need to do some major research on washability versus Scotch guarding. Also, I might want to check out our scanty selection around town to actually sit in some chairs. Oh, and buy a lottery ticket.
Do y'all have any suggestions for me and/or advice on scotch-guarding protecting upholstery?
Suggestions along the lines of "no eating on the couch" will be disregarded. Just saying.
