Modern Chair for the Bedroom (Update)

The bedroom makeover has dragged on, while I search for the right mid-century style bedroom chairs and rug. But I'm one step closer this week. The rug I'd been stalking at West Elm was just reduced half price, so I snapped it up. The Margo Selby Zig-Zag Stripe Kilim Rug ($299) makes a big color statement and that's going to help decide the chair. Possibilities include a surprising newcomer — a lounge chair ($250) from the new Target + Dwell collaboration. What do you think? Does it beat out gorgeous red Blu Dot chair (that's 4x the cost)? I'd love to hear opinions!

The Blu Dot Field Chair ($1400) is the only lounge chair that remains from my original shopping round-up. I LOVE it, however I don't love the price tag. Still, this is a major furniture purchase for us and I've never regretted a splurge when it's for an important piece. I mean, I'm the girl who still owns the couch she bought at Bloomingdales right out of college, albeit two slipcovers later. So, do I spring for these lovely red mod chairs I love? They are on sale this week. Or do I snap up the nicely priced Dwell modern? Or go for something in between?

The middle child is the Simon Lounge Chair by URBN ($560) in a nubby orange upholstery, with rounded arms and winged back. Our bedroom has a lot of metal and white laminate, so wood might really warm up the tableau.

Then there's the surprise breakout chair. Reminiscent of the Eero Saarinen executive armchair, but with a more laid-back silhouette, Target's Modern by Dwell Lounge Chair ($250) is mid-century sleek and priced to move. It only comes in white, but with white powder-coated metal legs, it's a nice match for our Min Bed from DWR and we'll be getting plenty of color in the rug and yellow bureau.

Three great options. What do you think?
