Materialism: The "What have you bought?" Thread

Cos the movers couldn't manoeuvre my old sofa into my new living room. <_<

 

(the bottom one looks like a different colour, but I'm getting it in the same colour as the other two)

So looking at that armchair, let's get this straight. You've moved out the family house, decided to skip the middle aged city bachelor flat, skipped family house number 2, skipped the bungalow, and moved straight into an old peoples' home?

That's not an armchair, assface. It's called a tub chair, and I will be too busy lying on the sofa to ever sit on it.

 

Lest we forget you designed and commissioned your own stained glass window btw. :razz:

We need our resident soft furnishings expert to clarify whether or not this is, in fact, an armchair. :lol:

It doesn't appear to have a curved back, so I'm pitching tent in Renton "The Fenestrator"'s camp.

It pains me to say it, but I think Gemmill has made a pleasing choice.

 

The downside. It's analine leather so he really should rub it all over with protective cream and nurture it weekly. He won't.

 

It also stains very easy so when he has those wild, drink fuelled sex parties..... Oh wait. When he drops his popcorn he needs to be very careful.

 

However, it's super soft and he will think he's sitting on a marshmallow.

 

As for THAT chair. It looks a bit naff straight on, but side on it oozes Retro coolness.

If I didn't know better, I'd have guessed I was looking through the keyhole of no other than...

Yeah I'm pretty cool. Thanks for the review. The coolest thing was me choosing it within 5 minutes of entering the shop - real men don't ponder furniture decisions.

 

And you're right, I won't be treating the leather. Fuck that.

Gemmology, it's CT who is liking this monstrosity. CT! :lol:

 

Edit: gemmology, interesting predictive text...

I even went on Google and calculated the hypotenuse to ensure they could tip it through its diagonal onto its end and get it into the room. B)

By the way, monstrosity. Fuck you! :lol:

 

A man who designed his own stained glass window whilst still in his 20s has, at best, questionable taste. :razz:

Well, if I got an endorsement of my window from CT, I would have been worried.

 

But anyway, that house has been sold now and the next generation of 20 something couple are enjoying the benefit of having a beautiful bespoke landing stained glass window to put smiles on their faces every morning.

 

So fuck you.
