Here it is in all it's glory
I have known for a long time what I would like to replace this chair with, and have looked in stores whenever I get the chance. The problem is that the price seems to be 3x what I want to pay. When Gord turned 40 this year my plan was to buy a chair and I told him that's what his gift was. Well, I just couldn't find what I was looking for despite all the chairs out there. If I did find one it was too expensive or discontinued. Last night, just for kicks, I went online and found the perfect one! Costco now carries the chair I've been dreaming about. I admit, I was a little giddy to discover it, and after showing Gord I went ahead and ordered it. It's still a 'Man's Chair', but it's also beautiful. I have visions of it in the new house, close to the fire, cup of coffee...really, it's Gord's, except he doesn't drink coffee ;)

I hope he enjoys sitting in it as much as I will love looking at it. If he does, then it's a fair trade.
