From the chart above, I think it's obvious that I LOVE the combo of leather and wood, so that was my jumping off point in my search for the perfect chair. Price eliminated a couple of my favorites from above, including the Rhys on the top left and the Dwell beauty in the middle right. Design-wise, I wanted to strike a nice design balance. I think the tufts make this chair seem a little traditional, but the lines and the plywood make it really modern. The prettiness of the white leather against the naturalness of the wood give it a great juxtaposition. Though, I do think in the future I will explore the option of getting it recovered in buttery carmel leather, for right now, the white helps keep the room light, airy and feminine. Plus the size works perfectly in my current space.
