I knew we could do it! Here are some photos of what Linda and I purchased and assembled over the next couple of days. I bought this skinny white reading lamp for my home office to replace the one I gave to my nephew. Love the small footprint for this lamp!
I also bought a very pretty lampshade to use for a hanging lamp on the opposite side of the futon shown above. I wanted something decorative for the corner.
Now, here's the picture of Linda's chair with cushion and a small lamp that she bought. The chair had to be assembled but it wasn't too bad. I'd like to buy two of these for my family room to replace a loveseat. All three of us bought a lot of tiny things, too, but they didn't require any work once we got them home. Now I just have to convince George about the chair... Another of our friends, Shirley, has had two of these Poang chairs for several years and said they've held up really well.
