The mover picked up my beautiful red couch and two black chairs and coffee table, and a few things of Lauren's -- one big box of winter clothes, her desk, her TV. By the time this blog appears, I expect Lauren will have furniture in her Chicago studio apartment. She is eager to have furniture for its bare usefulness as furniture.
As for me, it's not the utility of my furniture I'm missing. I miss the contemporary style. I miss the brightness. I miss the shapes. I miss the overall effect in the room.
Surprisingly, my living room looks smaller without furniture.
The movers kindly moved in Lauren's chaise lounge into my living room for me. It is great to recline on, but it's beige. It's beige. I can't have beige. Maybe someone will help me move it back into Lauren's apartment. The balance balls will give much more the effect I want. Maybe even a science-fiction effect!
I have a big blue balance ball, a smaller silver one, and I think Lauren will give me her teal one. My living-room will feel more like me then, I think. It will be bright and bouncy. I like the round shapes. Balance balls will really make my living-room look contemporary again, don't you think? Hmm.
If I want to recline when Lauren's chaise lounge goes back to her Fairfield apartment, I can recline on the floor on a bright exercise mat with a pillow under my head. It sounds good to me.
Note: I haven't been taking photos because my camera has something wrong with it.
