I bought this gorgeous chair as a special gift for myself. I wanted it to be somewhere where I could wind down at the end of the night with a glass of wine and a good book. But the thing is so comfortable that my husband won't stay off it! He's also decided that the ottoman is his as well, since he loves to put his feet up at night. He loves being able to sit back and read the paper, and he keeps commenting on how comfortable the chair is. Not that I'd know, of course!
