Which would you choose?2007-01-24Written by iHanna 38 Comments Which of these arm chairs would you choose, and why? I want to know. I’ll write the story about the two chairs another day. And what do you think of my new banner and design? Home Comforts
The black and round one is a great sculpture – but I think the red is more comfortable – it simply looks more cosy. I?d go for the red! Maybe I?d consider a new cover though. Imagine some delicate patchwork… or fabrick with turquise, yellow, white and green stribes, or what about roses or, or ….
The red one, definitely. For the shape, the comfort, the history, and all the possibilities with fabric and paint.
I would pick the red chair. I like fabric and cushions more than style.
love the new banner! i would choose the red one b/c the design has more character. plus i’m more into traditional furniture vs. modern furniture.
Most Definitely the one on the right (red one). I thought the one on the left was a satellite dish and you were trying decide between getting satellite or a new nice chair! LOL! I guess that answers your question!
On the banner, I would like it more if everything was standing up and the view was from the front instead of above it, but that’s just my “angle”…xo Lia
It looks more comfy :-)
I love the new banner!
I like the red chair on the right. As much as I like modern furniture and looks, sometimes the decor can look ‘cold’ and uncomfortable. The red chair on the right looks perfect to sit and read a book in, plus you can always recover it in some sort of funky print to match the room you want to put it in.
Great banner! It’s a good size. Not too huge so it takes a long time to load.
I like the red chair better because I could reupholster it with any fabric I wanted :)
I’m for the red one too. I can’t imagine getting comfortable enough in the black one to read or knit.
I love the red.
1. because it’s red and everyone needs a little red
2. seems more like a piece that would be used all the time. the black one seems more like an occasional piece
3. the black is almost too contemporary for most spaces. did i just say that? i can’t believe i think something is too contemporary
4. the arms on that chair are so divine – it’s just a great find
Bannern ?r s? passande till inneh?llet! :) Gillar den! Ang stolarna skulle jag nog v?lja den r?da, f?r den passar in i min gammeldags inredning. Den svarta ?r ocks? snygg, stilren, men nej, den r?da f?r det bli f?r min del.
the black one looks cold and like one can’t sit there for hours without getting a hurting back… the red one looks really comfy, and like it has thousands of stories to tell, if one just sits there long enough…
oh bugger, I’m already in love with your red chair O.o please, send it to Denmark if you’re tossing it *giggles*
If the red chair was my old chair — or a chair from someone I knew — I would choose the old chair. I don’t like used furniture if it comes from a stranger.
The red chair looks more comfortable.
If it were a choice between a thrift store red chair and the black chair, I would choose the black chair.
Sv?rt val… Den svarta ?r snygg, men den ser mer ut att h?ra hemma p? ett caf? eller s? (i och f?rsig ?r de mysigaste fikastolarna de gamla n?tta, som p? mitt favoritcaf? Edenborgs), s? om det var hemma hos dig (eller n?n annan) skulle jag v?lja den r?da, den ser gammal och mysig ut.
I go with the rest Hanna, I love the red one. Gill.
I’d pick the old chair because I love the wood, it looks comfortable and I would be able to change the fabric and upholster it in something cute. Can’t wait to read the chair story :)
like the new banner.
also – like the red chair – it looks much more comfortable than the trendy one – it also looks like its had a life – and a usefull one at that. yes – the red one gets my vote.
Oh I LOVE the new banner and I love the red chair!! way more cozy and also would be easy to upholster if you hate the fabric or replace it because a little worn!!! and I am not fond of furniture with metal on it unless it is outdoor furniture!!!!! I just like the warmth of wood and fabric!!! Hugs Linda
love the new banner. as for the chairs, what are you going to use them for? bedroom or living room?
the old chair. Just as it is. Perfect.
While the black one is cool and modern, I’d vote for the red one any day of the week. I’d bet that it’s comfy and soft. Plus I like the worn look of it.
Love your new design!
I would take the old chair, looks a lot more comfortable and you can cover it easily with a beautiful fabric. I have a similar one in my living room.
Um, I’d take the red one. Why? Because it’s really hot here at the moment and the black one looks like it is vinyl and it would get really sweaty – ewww. But I like them both. Great new design!
almost everyone takes the red one, so do I. Strange to consider that if you would post the same question on another blog, the readers would choose the black one.I think it has to do with the kind of people that read your blog Hanna
Svarer deg p? norsk her jeg!
Jeg liker ogs? den r?de stolen best! Jeg synes den er utrolig stilig og den er sikkert god ? sitte i ogs?!? Har lyst p? 2 s?nne stoler selv jeg, skal lete rundt p? auksjoner og lignende. Banneret ditt er kjempeflott. jeg har fulgt bloggen din ca et ?rs tid og synes det beskrives deg godt, veldig spennende!
Maybe I?m the only one, but I would choose the black one because I found it so beautiful and great! Also the black one should be perfect among my furniture?s. It?s a bit 1950?s over it and that what I like. Even if you can see that the red one has a history. And I know that the black one is nice to sit in too even if the red one maybe are even more comfy.
Definitely the red one – it looks more comfortable, as if waiting to be sat in it, with a pillow, a blanket, a pair of knitting needles and a cup of tea! ^^
I’d chose the red one because it looks more comfy and old. the black one is too modern for me but that’s just me and my style ;-)
definitely the red one. it’s more cozy and inviting. perfect for curling up with a book and a hot cup of tea. to me, the black chair seems cold and rigid and uncomfortable.
The red one – much the same reasons as Melanie just said. I actually like the old banner better but they are both nice.
I like the red chair. I like the rug under the black chair, but not the chair itself. Why do I like it better? I like that it’s old and unusual and comfortable looking and that it has possibilities. It could be slipcovered or patched in an artistic way, or it could be completely reupholstered. Or just left as it is. It’s nice.
I like the new layout but what happened to your shop?
[…] How fun to post a question to the blog and getting so many answers! Unexpected and very nice. I had so much fun reading your different answers. Thank you, everyone. […]
The red is cool, old, and vintage. The black is just cold man, cold. It looks ‘spacey’, like Red Dwarf-ish. My husband would totally love it. I have a blue leather like your red one, mine is wing-back though.
As a great lover of furniture… either one, but I especially appreciate the ‘bones’ of the red chair.
Nice to meet you!
i would choose the red one – looks so comfy and i like that it is old and looks worn…
the black one is not my style but only you can make the decision….. :o)
oh and i am totaly in love with the rug under the black chair!!!!!!!
did you make it???
Red chair, definetely, but I wouldn?t leave it as it is. There would be much work on it! I like modern and new-stile furniture but this chair you picked is in my opinion just ugly ( black leather – I hate leather) and looks uncomfortable.
Definitely the red one. The black one looks too plastic and dated
