The Glider Search Continued...

>> Thursday, October 7, 2010

As I have discussed before, my husband and I have a tiny apartment. The tiny apartment means there is only room for so much furniture. A "comfy" chair has been on his list since the day we bought our first house in Memphis. Four years later, still no chair. Last year I told him if we were smart we would get a chair that had a glide or rock function for the one day Baby Sabbe. It may sound weird, but when you are limited on square footage you have to buy furniture strategically. So we looked at a lot of very stylish, semi-comfy, modern gliders. But at $1000, we still have no chair.

A couple of days ago I was perusing the Wally World site after reading that was where Jenny had purchased Joanna's baby bed. And look what I found.

Not bad right? For $350, not bad at all!
It comes in black as well, both with matching ottomans.
Look at this great nursery someone posted in the ratings section.

 And they have a square arms option!
I really like the square arms one but that seat looks pretty narrow doesn't it? I hope our bottoms do not expand too much in the future, but again, we've got to plan ahead.

Smart girl thinking ahead! I think it's a great, stylish option!

Great find! And the price is so much more do-able.

Look into finding just a regular old side chair and putting gliders on it yourself, or having it done if you dont want the DIY route. I cant remember where I saw it before, but its just a though :)

definitely think the proportions on the last one are strange. serena and lily also has a similar chair for less than $1000. BUT I do have to say, I have the Monte design Luca and it is worth every penny!!

Ooooh Very nice but you are right about the little bottom part. It does look pretty small the chair not your bottom... I mean... Shoot I'd better stop right there. As a side note, I also like the fuzzy rug that's in that picture!

Oh, one more thought for the future use of the strategic glider. Spit up stains, and it is really bad on black fabric, so be sure the fabric is pretty washible.

i think it's pretty cute for the price!

Ha... planning ahead. In more ways than one. :)

Sounds like a FAB price! And I LOVE that whole nursery!
