Shortly after Easter this year I got a very bad concussion that left me on full bed rest for three weeks and semi bed rest for another 3 weeks. For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good.

I came across this picture (this place is gorgeous by the way) on desire to inspire and recognized the chairs but I couldn't believe it. They were the exact chairs that I had in my very first apartment. I didn't have much money and so I didn't have any living room furniture. One day the superintendent came to see me and said that someone had split and left all their furniture and would I like to come and see it. Well there it was, an entire set of foam chairs like the ones above. Of course mine were nowhere near as sexy as those in the picture, they were brown tweed if I remember correctly but they were awesome. I covered mine in red and they really rocked.
