    My club chair in the room I turned into a library. It is incredibly comfortable and the perfect spot to watch the rain, the fall leaves turning or the children on the street playing on their bikes in the evening before the street lights come on. (Also great for its intended purpose of curling up with a book on a lazy afternoon!) Surrounded by my books and memories collected over a lifetime, I could not be more at peace than when I take time to sit in that comfy chair and let the world go away.

    The most comfortable piece of furniture I own is an old love seat that I stuffed old foam pillows under the cushions.

    I have a green recliner in my bedroom that is broken in and is extremely comfortable.

    I’d have to say my bed. It’s a Sleep Number so as Goldilocks might say it’s just right. I imagine my husband might answer differently and mention his unfortunate leather recliner in the basement.

    I, too, splurged on a high quality, comfy, cozy bed! I’m also quite fond of our couch from Ethan Allen. It, too, was a splurge, and well worth it. The others we’ve had in the past just haven’t held up. These lamps would make a beautiful addition to the bedroom – or maybe living room (!).

    And old chair that belonged to my mom and dad when they were still living. It was handed down to me and I have had it reupholstered twice now.

    My sofa. I am short and most furniture leaves my legs dangling. My sofa sits perfect and my feet touch the floor. I can move the cushions around and turn over to keep them fresh.

    Club chairs! I have a pair of club chairs in the den, and there is nothing like sitting in those!

    Hm …considering your question brought me to the realization that among my entire collection of living room furniture there isn’t one piece that I would really call ‘comfortable’. Not in the way I think of comfort, something you look forward to and hate to leave.

    Except for my bed. It’s the one piece we’ve splurged on and is the ultimate in comfort but I am driven away from it every morning!

    My most comfortable piece of furniture is a chair that mother left my husband.It is not a beautiful chair,but nice enough.The upholstery is a golf pattern on the padded seat and high back,the Dark thin wooden arms similar to goose neck ,the legs graceful queen Ann with claw feet.My mother sat in this chair at her dining room table under her chandelier with the cranberry rose cut globes.The hue cast a sweet glow in the room and on her sweet cheeks.My sister and I payed cards with mama as she sat in this chair and at 93,she often beat us.Now as I sit in her chair in our bedroom I feel the closeness and sweetness of her presence.One can’t ask for any thing more comfortable.

    Our most comfortable piece of furniture is also the most frustrating piece. It is our living room sofa. My boyfriend bought it probably 20 years ago. It was from Pier 1 I think and it can be seen in the movie “Office Space”.

    It is a perfect size to sleep on (if you toss off the back cushions) and he sleeps on it for naps. It is a nice height and firm enough to do “laptop” work on for hours. It is remarkably light and can be moved around easily by one person. Is is a neutral color as well. BUT…it is falling apart (like a dorm room abused sofa)!

    I’ve wanted to get rid of it but he insists we can get it reupholstered. I’m giving him/us until the end of the year to do it — and if it wasn’t so handy and comfortable, it would have been gone long ago.

    For me the atmosphere is as important for relaxation and to be comfortable. I am blesses to have three comfy spots. In the winter it would be in my deep club chair in front of the roaring fireplace. In perfect weather, which is most days I escape to my back bricked patio and flower garden relax in my heavy, vintage wrought iron chaise. My fav place is what I call the sleeping room, reminiscent of old county sleeping porches. But, this is inside at the very peak of our home. A small,attic like pitched dormer room with one very large window to let in the breeze and light. The room has one side table with a small lamp, stacks of books, a white crocheted hammock and my great great grandma’s iron bed. The bed has crisp, white, cotton sheets, a feather bed that I covered in pale blue ticking, vintage pillowcases, a light down duvet that I covered in the tiniest pale green flower print cotton fabric. And, a paisley throw for cooler weather. This is everyone’s fav piece of furniture/room/spot for a nap or to read. Sometimes we fight over who gets to use the room…especially after a big holiday dinner.

    The most comfortable piece of furniture I own is a vintage Eames Chair and ottoman made in 1957. I was seven years old when this chair was made. It belonged to my uncle who died in 1982. After his funeral I went back to his home with my cousins who, along with their mother, had always hated that chair. They were going to throw it out. I told them I would take it off their hands as I knew the value of this incredible piece of mid-century modern art. However, I am about to ship it to its’ new owner. The chairs were made without any apparent connections or screws revealed on the exterior of the chair. Instead they were applied using rubber shock absorbing material which has now become brittle. I am 6’2″ tall and weigh 250 lbs. Sadly, there is no way I can use this chair without destroying it. Other than that it is in near perfect condition . My uncle paid $500.00 for this chair in 1958. I just sold it for $5,000.00. Not a bad return.

    It was the first brand new piece of furniture I purchased a few years after I graduated. Not to sound like Goldilocks, it fit me just right even though it was something men rather than women tend to call their own. I had it repaired three times over the years. Yet the sad day came when we had to say goodbye.

    To replace it and fill the hole in my heart/living room, I purchased a sumptuous leather one, same brand, different model. I knew well before the 60-day trial period was up we were not meant to be. Leather was replaced by a snazzy, classic, wool blend, tweed. So lovely to look at– too bad it made me itch. All over. We called it off after only a week. A coworker suggested Craig’s List.

    It took a few months. Then the last of my discontinued model, manufactured 12-years after mine, good used condition, pet free home, $50, mud brown velour. $25 and one reupholstery job later, I’m sitting pretty in the me sized and shaped, most comfortable piece of furniture, ever, my La-Z-Boy recliner.
