Easy Chairs for My Old Age

January 22, 2013

Today is my 30th birthday! I am very excited for my age to finally start lining up with my old-person lifestyle!  I mean, my dream day would include hours of knitting on the couch while listening to audiobooks and watching a Ken Burns documentary on PBS, so I’ve been preparing for for my own retirement for a while now.

In honor of this big birthday, I’ve decided to do a bit of dream-shopping for modern easy chairs to support my aching bones in my old age.  Here’s what I found!

Womb Chair: $3,282

Nice and supportive, with good armrests for optimal knitting positioning.

Cloud Chair, By Lisa Widen

This one reclines on rails, although I may need to reserve this for the last chair I’ll ever sit in, since I’d probably be unable (also unwilling) to get out.

Metropolitan Chair & Ottoman: $3,895, $1,693 respectively (OMG)

Don’t mind if I do.  If I spent this much money on a chair, though, I wouldn’t be able to sit on it (let alone put my feet on it!)

Bliss Down-Filled Chair-and-a-Half: $599

This would be a great place to watch The Price is Right for hours every day.

Colorblock Finn Rocker: $1,698

This is such a beautiful rocker.  Rocking is pretty much as close to exercising as I get right now, so it would be good to carry my fitness regimen into my old age with some style!

Dylan Leather Wingback Chair: $2,199

I shall call it my throne and from it, I shall reign supreme for at least another 30 years!

    If buying one of these chairs could somehow guarantee you’d continue blogging for the next 30 years, I’d start tithing to the womb chair! Happy, Happy Birthday!!
