Chairy Situation

In the last year, I've had 3 different chairs in the same spot in the living room.  Like a crazy person, I keep purchasing chairs and swapping them out at least once every couple of months.  Cannot decide which one I like more!??

 I originally started off with an Ikea Poang chair, which now sits in my boyfriend's living room.  I swapped that out for this red Lunna Chair which I kept for a couple of years.

 Earlier this year I swapped out the Lunna for this rattan chair that I got on Craigslist for $20.  I went to Pier1 and picked up the cushion on clearance for $15, but I'm not totally in love with this look, but I am totally digging the armrests.

I spotted this beauty on Craigslist.  Initially they were sold at Ikea and I had wanted the orange one, but at $400 they were a bit out of my price range and they discontinued that color this year...so I was pretty happy to get this, and for way less than half of the price of a new one.  While carrying this monstrosity into my apartment, I accidentally dropped it on my foot....REALLY HARD and let me tell you...it hurt like HELL!  My toes are totally black and blue and look horrible, but surprisingly I feel no pain now.

So....right now I still have all three chairs, but I'm not sure which one works best in this space.  What I really need to do is go into therapy for my Craigslist addiction problem!

They all have their own charm! Hope your toes heal quickly.

Right now my living room looks more like a thrift store with all the chairs crowding in it. At least I no longer feel pain...but my toes are all black and blue still.
