Look what I found!!!

Todays post in English

I have googled and searched all over the net

I was willing to pay quite a lot

Also for shipping if that was necessary

from other cities….. or countries for that matter….

It is amacing how possessed I can get when working on a  project..

I was considering different types…

Like this one;

 

liggestol

But I think that is to much laying down….

The danger is that we will never go to bed….we would feel that we are already there …

No, I wanted a chair to sit in,  with something to rest the legs on…

I actually liked the ones we had

They were big and comfy

the red totally crashed with the orange fireplace

but I thought I could sew new upholstery

well I would`nt do it myself of course

Me who got my teacher so upset that she said:

«oh Janecke I think maybe woodworking would be better for you»

that was after I had broken several needles in the sewing machine…..

and sewn trough my thumb…

and thats only when trying to make a  sample patch

 

…..I had also tried to nit a hem on a sweater……

but when you are more into talking with your friends than paying attention to wether the last stich were a nit or a purl  the hem does´nt turn out very well….

No! I know my limits so I had planned to get someone to do it for meg…

BUT…..

they turned out to be way to big for our tv living room

So I drove to every furniturestore in Bergen…..

two called; Bohus and Skeidar….

but they had the more traditional stressless chairs….

 

stressless

And even though they have modernized them some….

and the sitting comfort is very good..

It was a bit to much 1980 for me…..

You see…… the stressless from the 80`s dont hold many good memories for me

We had 3 chairs in front of our TV growing up

The newest chair was my moms

the one not so new was my dads

and the one getting ready to be thrown out was my brothers

and what was left?

yeah….. the footstool

and that was mine… 😦

try sitting on that for a hole evening of TV  not having anything to rest your back against….

I went to the Danish shop; Bolia

bolia stol

Well…

Would be nice if I was pissed at my boyfriend and didnt want to see him at all….

But no

a bit to antisocial for me this chair…

reminds me of those blinders that they use on horses…

I went to another store called; Berle

and there I found a chair that would fit perfectly in our livingroom

very good to sit in

like sinking into a pillow….

and great looking I thought

 

berlestol

But the boyfriend freaked out when he heard the price…

21 000 Norwegian kroners (Nkr) for one chair

wich is approximately 2343,-  euro or 2593,-  US dollar

and that would be 42 000 Nkr……… because we needed two. of course…

But I was as I said, willing to pay quite a lot to get the right chairs…

and had already made up my mind…

But than we went to IKEA to buy wardrobe for the bedroom…

I had`nt even consider looking for chairs there..

but

TAAADAAAAAA!!!!!

landskrona-lenestol__0320831_PE514840_S4

we found this!!!

I really liked it alot!!

a totally different price 🙂

and it was really good to sit in

Maybe not the «sinking into a pillow» feeling

but close enough!

They even had a footstool

So we bought it

Nice??

Cant wait to go to sleep in a room with a door…
