Do you have a man in your life that’s anything like mine, a gamer?
If you do, you know that finding the optimal seating for video gaming is tricky.
Everything seems to be too high, too low, too upright, or too reclined. Your seating has to be the right height to thump it out on the drums while playing Rockband, but also a place where you can sit back and get comfy for hours of Call Of Duty.
Not being a gamer myself, I don’t really get the appeal, but I know one thing for sure: When I saw this 3-piece chair/sofa combo, I knew it would fit the bill perfectly.
At $50 a piece, each of these separate chairs can be used on their own or lined up to form a sofa. They are the perfect place to sink into, but also provide a high seat edge for perching on to rock the drums.
The way I see it, you have 3 options here.
- DIY Slipcover
- Professional reupholstery
- Leave them as-is and layer multiple throw blankets over top to create a more casual look.
I personally dig the big, fat, brown corduroy fabric that presently covers them. It’s soft, cozy and perfect for a rec room. Introducing a throw blanket like this with warm, caramels, soft blues & greys along with crisp creams would let the retro vibe flow while, at the same time, modernizing the look to avoid creating a time warp.
So, what do you think?
