Living Room Update

I am still LOVING our fireplace and wood floors.  One of my favorite features of the living room is the tv being above the fireplace.  It gives us so much more floor space and really opened up our furniture options!  We've ALWAYS just had a couch and loveseat because due to our entertainment center we didn't have the space for any other chairs, etc.

I will state that unlike lots of people I HATE furnitre shopping.  I have a hard time envisioning things with our current furniture, mixing and matching, etc.  Our neighbors both work at Mathis Brothers here in Oklahoma City and have for YEARS.  I followed their suggestion on what sales person to work with when visiting the store (neither of them work in sales).  Last weekend the schedules finally worked out and Summer was at work.  We got to the store shortly after 11:00 and by 12:45 we were down the street at Panera eating lunch and had purchased a chair and a half with matching ottoman and two end tables.

Summer was hands down the BEST furniture salesperson I've ever worked with...I took pictures of the floors, current couch and loveseat and of our rug.  I explained to her how everything was situated and what we were looking for by adding some pieces.  Literally the first chair she took us to is the one we purchased.

Unfortunately our pieces won't be in until next week I will definitely be sure and add photos when they do arrive but below I have some pics I pulled off the website.  I would call our style in the living room is definitely a rustic traditional type look. Our current couch and loveseat are a darker leather with rolled arms and nailhead trim.  We chose to go with upholstery on the chair and NOT go with a print instead incorporating prints with our current rug and some new throw pillows (which have yet to be purchased!).  We also decided to not do a traditional coffee table in the room.  By not having a coffee table the space is really open to every other area of our house.  We instead went with an end table for the couch and an end table for the love seat.  We went with a chair and a half with an oversized ottoman which will allow us to put a tray and use it as a coffee table when needed!

The square table will go next to the couch and the round smaller table will go next to the loveseat.  Both tables are handscraped like our floors and the round one has a hand hammered copper top!  Love them!
