The gift my family gave to me for Mother's Day was delivered this week! I had been looking for a chair for our living room for over 3 years and always hesitated to make a big purchase but when it was given to me, I finally felt free to make it happen. Here's how it all went down:
These are the before pictures that show a void of where it would be nice to have a chair.
At first I thought I'd go with the chair I had always wanted, a brown leather butterfly chair. I had seen one in an Orvis catalog in college and LOVED it. Ever since then the chair kept popping up in the coolest settings indoor and outdoor. Here are a couple examples of the look:

And now the void is filled! I've also always wanted a wingback chair but thought it would be too tall and block the view to our back yard. It turns out this Serena & Lily Bruno chair is like a low wingback!
The chair is deeper than I thought so I had to do some shifting of furniture and rearranging of artwork. I think I like it better like this! Oh, and I decided to leave my dog kennel in the picture because that's life, kennel in the living room where our big dog is happiest!
In a couple years I think a sectional would be great in here, can't wait to figure that out! In the meantime, will you please help me, pillow or no pillow?
This chair has no arms but look how comfy it is!
If you're ever looking for a butterfly chair, save time and go straight here to the Big BKF. The leather on the Vaqueta Playa reminds me of the leather on a Louis Vuitton, it would wear so nicely over time. I like the Whisky too and I still see a butterfly chair in our future.
