I was thinking about buying an Ikea chair to match the couch and sit by the window. I knew it would fit, but I didn’t know if it would look good or feel comfortable. Instead of buying the chair and finding out it was bad, I moved my comfy chair from my office into the spot.
Ironically, it DOES feel uncomfortable, but not for the reasons I imagined. Because the chair is facing the china cabinet, I can see a constant reflection of myself in its glass. Rather than enjoying the view, I find my gaze drawn to the vision of myself staring back. I think I’ll move the chair back and give up on the idea of sitting next to the window.
