Dolce Slipper Chair

As we are working out the finishing details of our Living Room Makeover, we needed to decide on chairs. I wrote this post asking for your opinion, and pretty unanimously, you said, the Dolce Slipper Chair. I originally saw this chair on Young House Love. They had not just one, but two Dolce Slipper Chairs!

I was slightly hesitant about ordering something online without seeing it, but, after much reassurance from you, we decided to go for it. We only bought one, just in case it didn't work for the space. We figured we could always stick it in our bedroom if it didn't work out. It arrived just a couple days after ordering it...(and we got free shipping).

Calvin and Hobbes, I mean, Dmitri and Sookie enjoyed helping unpack.

And here it is after a laborious assembly courtesy of David.

What do you think? And in case you are wondering, the walls really aren't that dark. That's what happens when I take photos at 7 PM. (Sorry, watching this week's episode of Weeds took higher priority.)

Sookie thinks it's just for her.

A Review of the Chair:
As people have written on the Target website, it is a pain to put together. The pre-drilled holes are completely uneven. Somehow, David miraculously made it work, though it took a while. One of the legs is still a little crooked, but it's not too bad. It's also much bigger than either of us expected. All in all, I don't think it's a bad chair for the price.

Now we just have to decide if a second one is in order....I think I'm really liking it.

We had the same issue with the odd legs on our couches - they look similar to this chair (in style, I love the fabric on this chair and wish my couches looked like that). I read reviews and everyone on there hated putting our furniture together - my boyfriend said it was a snap, only the leg gave him issues.

They have held up really well and we've had them for 2 years.

Excellent choice for the chair.

I think it looks great! The fabric is a great neutral color and the texture/details keep it interesting. I love the angles of the seat/back. I wish I had your talent for decorating :)

prefab things always drive me nuts when you're trying to assemble them. But I'm amazed! This chair is from Target?? sweet find. It's beautiful and two would be gorgeous!

Wow! That looks awesome!

Looks great. And I love the pillow with it.

There's something about a box that no cat, or kid, can resist.

I think it's really cute. Works well in the space! I'd get the second one!

Very cute, I like it but I don't think you'll ever get to enjoy it, Sookie looks very comfy on it! LOL

Hey just found your site when I was searching for images of the Dolce chair. I just ordered two of them and can't wait til they come in. We have two cats and I was wondering if the chair is a hair magnet? I'm assuming it will collect hair, but is it easy to clean/brush off? It looks great in your space by the way!
