Our new chairs have been here for a few weeks now, and honestly, it's taken me that long to get used to them. The final verdict? I love them.
Right now we have them pushed together where our old loveseat used to be, and I love that they can act as a mini-couch. It gives us plenty of seating, but also a lot of room to move things around. And, since there are two of them, hopefully they will work in a variety of settings (i.e. a new living area when we move someday!).
We bought them from World Market online. I was pretty happy with ordering them online. We were able to go to a store and see the chair in a different color, but we kind of bought these ones sight unseen. For a gamble like that, I think they turned out pretty well!
To bring in some more yellow (I seriously love yellow), I made a couple of new pillow covers for the couch. The chairs are a deeper golden tan/yellow, very neutral and easy to decorate around. The new pillows are a bit brighter, but I love the color!
The pillow cover fabric is from JoAnnes (it's just cotton quilting fabric- so easy and cheap!). I made them with snaps on the back so they are easily removable for washing.
There are still a few changes to be made to this room, but I like to let it evolve over time. We found a free console/dresser on the side of the road, so I plan to paint it and use it for a tv stand! I'm just waiting for some warmer weather so I can toss open the garage door and get to painting!
