Say welcome to our new Lounge Chair (I still have to give her a name)!!! If you remember my last post about the top 10 Best Lounge Chair I had a clear idea that a Mid-Century piece was the style to go for.

Zeitraum KOSI Collection

January is a neverending month, but we’re finally getting to the end of it …
