That Velvet Chair From Amazon Everyone Keeps Talking About Is As Good As It Seems

The chair, in all of its glory.

The chair, in all of its glory.

I love Amazon because it encompasses many of my tiny loves into one giant love. There's just something incredibly satisfying about being able to buy granola bars and every season of Game of Thrones on DVD all at once. And when I saw an article about these velvet chairs on Amazon that I apparently just "had to have," I, of course, stood absolutely no chance in resisting. This is both because I love a good deal, and also because I cannot even afford the individual dresser drawer knobs Anthropologie sells, let alone this glorious pink velvet chair that is almost $400.

Of course, this chair from Amazon was only $90, so I assumed it would arrive and look different than I was expecting. I was convinced I had either bought doll house furniture that was made to look way bigger in the photos, or a chair that was basically built out of cardboard and would immediately disintegrate into a fine dust when I sat on it. I was prepared for the worst, and hoping for the best. And my friends, let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised. It is pink, it is soft, and it is glorious. And, one of my favorite characteristics that an item can have: It looks way more expensive than it actually is.

So soft, so surprisingly affordable...

While I'm not saying that this chair is going to last you for the next 30 years (or even, like, 5 probably), it's a great statement piece that adds color to a room without having shell out major cash. And if you have Prime, it arrives in two days AKA you won't have time to regret the purchase or change your mind.
