sofas for loafers

Loaf-lounge - 1

have you seen the new loaf winter collections yet?

there’s a fabulous array of new products that have just landed on the site, including some fabulous new rugs which are making my heart sing (the sails rug inspired by swedish boat house is a particular favourite) and the stylish reclaimed fir timber loafian coffee table and matching little loafian side table.

one thing that i really love about the loaf website is that they have a special page dedicated to “shopping the look” where you can quickly and easily find all the the products featured in their gorgeous styled shots – super handy, right?  so, inspired by these fabulous round-ups, i decided to pull together my own mix of products to create the perfect lounge and bedroom to loaf around in…

(p.s. isn’t “loaf” such a fantastic term for lazing about..?!)


| 01. beni | 02. brood | 03. croquet | 04. classic ticking | 05. campaign | 06. smith |

another piece i spied that would work wonderfully in either of my roomsets is this stunning rocker rocking chair, which is made of weathered birch wood with handwoven rattan and gives a very nostalgic piece of furniture a contemporary scandi-inspired makeover.

and guess what? the lovely people over at loaf are offering readers of fabricofmylife the chance to win one themselves!

  2. Beatiful items.

    I would place the chair by the window in my little flat so I can look out while I read my books in the evening and on weekends, super cosy with a throw & a cat.

    I think it will be snowing too. Perfect scenario!

  3. I’d love this for our bedroom at the top of the house, perfect for a relaxing cup of tea and escaping the family chaos!

  4. I would put it in the corner of my bedroom, right by my bookshelves! I love Loaf too, I recently did a post on them too styling their new collection!

  5. It would go in our living room. It might even spur me on to finish decorating it. It really is a beautiful chair.

  6. oooohhhhhh!!!

    in my bedroom

    snuggling up with a steaming hot cup of tea and biscuits.


  7. I would put this beautiful chair in my living room by the window – great spot for curling up with a book :)

  8. I would put this beautiful chair in my living room by the window – great spot for curling up and reading a book :)

  9. I’d place the rocking chair in my conservatory so I could sit rocking watching the birds in my garden eating chocolates and drinking champagne…or more likely a mug of tea

  10. That’s a rockin’ rocker, if ever I saw one. I would move it around my house to enjoy it all the time!

  11. My kitchen is just the place for loafing around in a chair like this one. I’d probably have to fight the cat for it though!

  12. I have just found out that we are expecting a little girl, and this would be absolutely fabulous in her nursery, which I can’t wait to start decorating!

  13. It would sit next to my French windows to create the perfect corner to have my morning coffee

  14. This chair would go in my living room next to the window so I can read by the sunlight.

  15. Having lived in Louisiana it should go on my front porch, if I had one. I miss sitting outside, rocking and watching the world go by but in the UK it would be in the lounge next to the wood burning stove, passing the evening talking to good friends.

  16. It would be lovely to have this Rocking Chair on the deck outside our Summer House, Hubby cooking on the BBQ, me sitting with a glass of my favourite Merlot wine, the sun shining, etc etc……you get the picture….Bliss

  17. I would definitely put it in the lounge by the fire! Ready to rock those cold, dark winter blues away! With a good book and a lovely glass of red wine… does it get much better??

  18. I would love to win this and I could rock and relax with a glass of wine whilst watching the birds in my garden

  19. During the spring, I’d have it in my conservatory, to take advantage of the new sunshine and the new growth in the garden.

  20. would love to put in my mums living room, give her a gorgeous piece of luxury comfortable furniture

  21. I’d put it in my bedroom, so I could go and relax, away from all the stresses of day, away from the phone and fax.

  22. I’ve a small home but there happens to be a nice chair-shaped hole in the living room

  23. My 2 year old daughters bedroom…I’d love to have a chair like this to sit in and read her bedtime stories…instead of sitting on the floor and having to stay on the floor until she goes to sleep!

  24. I’d put it next to the French doors in my front room so I can watch the world go by :o)

  25. Such a beautiful collection, if I were to be lucky enough the chair would live in my bedroom!

  26. Very excitingly have just bought my very first house…eek! And as we’ve gone from a studio flat are lacking furniture. This chair will be a welcome and incredibly stylish addition to a slightly bare living room.
    Thanks loaf, hope I’m lucky

  27. I think this chair is beautiful, if I were lucky enough to win it I would put it in my sitting room and enjoy using it often.

  28. It’s beautiful! I’d put it in my conservatory so it would be really relaxing looking out into the garden

  29. Ooh it so lovely and looks so cosy!
    I’m about to move in with my boyfriend and this would be ideal to put in the study / studio to snuggle up in for when I need a bit of me time with a book, cup of tea and a blanket. Perfection.

  30. The chair is lovely. I’d put it in my lounge and sit with my little cat curled up in my lap.

  31. I don’t have a baby but this looks like the most perfect, relaxing chair to rock a little one to sleep. Definitely the ladies/babies room! Maybe I should have a baby..hmmm…

  32. That would look so nice in my son’s bedroom next to his window, he could sit on it to look through his telescope :)

  33. I’d put it in our back sitting room were I could sit and chill while reading a book

  34. I’d give it to my daughter for her baby’s room, he is due in on the 22nd January but we have been told to expect him at any time. This rocker would be ideal for when she is feeding him

  35. We’re about to move into a gorgeous national trust cottage & this beautiful chair would look fab in our dining room by the fire place.

  36. If I am lucky enough to win this rocker it will go in my living room so I can sit by the fire with a good book in one hand and a glass of vino in another :)

  37. Have just bought my first house and am gutting it completely. I would put this in the front room, where there isn’t quite enough room for a sofa, and drape a cosy blanket over the top :)

  38. In my newly built lounge – by the log burner in winter, and by the opened bi-fold doors in summer; perfect for both.

  39. i would use it in the nursery i always wanted a rocking nursing chair im just i could comprimise and use this instead :D

  40. I would place this chair in my baby girls nursery & I would use it to nurse her while we both rocked & relaxed, it would be heavenly!

  41. This chair would be perfect for sitting by our window which overlooks the garden – just the thing for rocking the stresses of the day away

  42. I would put this chair in the front room next to my partners bed where he is very sick at the moment. I would read my book and look out of the window

  43. I’d give it to my daughter for the bedroom, when her baby is born. When she was born my parents gave me a rocking-chair and with a cosy rug on my knees it got me comfortably through the cold winter night-time feeds.

  44. It would go on our porch, which looks out across the Pentland mountains. The wife and I can take turns feeding the baby out there…well, may not be a baby by the time the weather is good enough!

  45. I would put this lovely rocking chair in my lounge so I could do embroidery and look out of the window at the fig tree

  46. I would put the rocking chair in the sunny corner in my bedroom. It reminds me of the rocking chair in which my grandmother read my bedtime stories and in which she would rock me to sleep when I was upset or unwell. It was a happy time for me and I miss her so much. When I see this chair in the corner of my bedroo it will remind me of those happy times. m

  47. We are hoping to buy a house in the near future and start a family, this would fit in perfectly to our future nursery. :)

  48. In the corner of my living room, next to the window.
    I will be able to feel the heat from my log fire whilst watching the snow fall outside – before it all melts by Monday morning so I can get to work easily. Hee hee

  49. I’d place this gorgeous chair in our spare room, covered with the hand sewn quilt I finished today. It’s just a spare room at the moment but when it grows up it’s going to be a nursery.

  50. I have a space on the landing next to a sunny window it would be perfect for this rocker.

  51. We are busy helping our son and daughter in law turn their spare room into a nursery, in readiness for our first grandchild due New Year’s Even. I couldn’t think of a nicer place to put the rocking chair. Not only would it look great and be so helpful, but it would hold very special memories for all of us. The makings of a family heirloom.

  52. I’d put it in the conservatory which doubles as our dinning room perfect for busy family gatherings and peaceful moments when kids playing in our garden. Here’s hoping! X

  53. I think we could share the chair easily, i’d like it in the dining room then when we need that extra chair after every Sunday dinner, the fighting for the posh chair would begin!

  54. This would be perfect in my basement ‘den’.
    My little hidey-hole where I could rock away in perfect solitude :-)

  55. it would go in my bedroom as i spend most of my time in there and it would be more cosy with it in!

  56. This chair would be lovely in the nursery that my hubby has just finished decorating for our first baby due in December… a lovely unique piece to hold on to over the years of nursing, comforting and reading stories that are coming! A chair will definitely be required!

  57. I’d have it in my living room so I can rock my niece while watching my favourite programmes :) x

  58. This rocking chair would go very nicely in front of our fire in the living room. I can just imagine nodding off on long winter evenings.

  59. I’d put this beautiful rocking chair in my kitchen next to the Aga, so that I can hopefully catch a few minutes peace and a couple of sips of tea if I’m lucky, while my 2 and 4 year old are briefly entertained in something other than me….ah peace and quiet for a few moments…until the next ‘Mummy!! Where are you?’ of course.

  60. My husband and I have had our eyes on this rocker for a few weeks now, we would love it to go in our unborn babies nursery, baby due in December would look lovely in there!

  61. I’ve been searching for a good rocker for years – this one looks perfect, and would certainly live in our second bedroom, which will eventually become a nursery when we’re ready to take that step!

  62. This will take pride of place in our bedroom for when I’m yearning quiet time and a break from reality. I have a pile of books waiting to be read whilst gently rocking and can almost smell the coffee that will make my escapism just serene!

  63. I love to put this rocking chair in the living room .It would be my chair, as my hubby has a armchair which he says is his lol !

  64. Love this rocking chair – I’d put it in our currently very sparse guest bedroom, to give people somewhere to sit and to make it feel more welcoming.

  65. By the French windows in the living room where I sit and sew overlooking the garden.

  66. I love the retro feel of the Monty sofa from Loaf. This rocking chair is stunning. I would love it to go in the bay window in my bedroom. There is currently a big space that I have yet to fill. It’s a room I like to relax in. Katy x

  67. I would give this to my daughter who is expecting a baby. It would go in the nursery and would be perfect for cuddles and feeds :)

  68. I would put it in my conservatory so i could sit and watch the wild life in the garden. We get deer and barn owls

  69. Having just discovered Loaf last week I have now nearly allocated all my savings on your new range! So his would be perfect for finishing of our new bedroom reading a book!

  70. I would put this lovely chair in my lounge in the corner space near our window. Perfect for relaxing in

  71. This gorgeous chair would be perfect in my daughter’s new bedroom. She has been residing in a cosy space under our attic stairs since she was born just over a year ago but when we move home in a fortnight she will have her very own room. I can just picture snuggling down with her each evening on this super stylish rocker to read her some of my childhood favourite stories.

  72. I would like to put this heavenly looking rocker where my children play, where we cook, eat and run daily family life! Might make me stop and look around more – rather than racing about …

  73. I would put it in our home office, where it would make me step away from the PC and allow some thinking and planning time, catch up on the reading pile, a nice cuppa and turn on some tunes, take the phone off the hook maybe …. the screen free chair ….!

  74. This lovely rocker would go in my bedroom, where I would put a lovely soft throw over it, and rock gently whilst daydreaming out of the window…sublime

  75. I’d love to relax in this chair at night it would be great to help reduce the stress from a hard day at work

  76. Initially I would place it at the top of the stairs in the dark and scare the daylights out of the other half (hammer house horror gets him every time) but after the fun I would put it in the living room, it would be great with a cushion, a blanket and a cup of hot chocolate with the dog on my knee.

  77. What a beautiful rocker! I’d place it by the window where I’d sit, wrapped up in a cosy throw (& most likely with my cat on my knee), just rockin’ & watching the world go by.

  78. I would put the chair in my spare room as it has been decorated now for 6 weeks and we still have not found the perfect chair and this one would be ideal.

  79. It would go in my sun lounge where I could rock myself in warm comfort in the sun even in cooler days.

  80. in summer on the veranda, spring and autumn in the living room, winter in my bathroom next to the bath.

  81. I would put it in the corner of my kitchen, so that as one of us cooks in the evening, the other one can rock gently away chatting in uber-comfort and style!

  82. It is too nice to hide away I would put it in my living room and rock myself well into my doteage

  83. I’d place it in my living room by the patio doors so I could survey the grounds (aka my little garden) or take a sneaky snooze!

  84. I’d put it in my bedroom, so before bed I could snuggle up and read a good book. Plus we are trying for a baby and my mum always says a rocking chair is a great addition when you have a baby to help soothe it to sleep etc :)

  85. I would have this in our daughters nursery, make feeding a little more comfortavle

  86. I would put this gorgeous rocker chair in the corner of my bedroom – my sanctuary away from my 3 kids. so I can curl up and read in those rare quiet moments a single mum gets!

  94. I’d luv to win this rocking chair and put it in my conservatory and sit in it and read my newspaper in the morning sunshine now I’m retired.

  95. In the living room, to get the most use. Can it rock me to the bedroom after I’ve fallen asleep in it?

  96. definitely in my study, so I can allegedly study in it, . or maybe just rest my eyes a bit… and gently drift off. Ahhhhh the best way to learn I think.

  97. I’d put it in my newly decorated lounge beside the fire – it would be soo relaxing!
    It’s a fantastic prize … Fingers crssed!

  98. It would have to go in my lounge and I would move it to different parts according to my moods.

  111. I have a space
    which looks very sad,
    at the end of my lounge
    where the vibe is quite bad!

    It does boast a bookcase,
    and a window with light,
    but nothing I place there
    ever seems “right”

  149. I’m in the midst of hand-knitting my first ‘luxury’ throw and this rocking chair could be its first home next to the sash windows in the living room.

  150. Initially I would transfer it into whichever room we were sitting in where there wasn’t enough seats for guests. For my own personal use I would have it in the conservatory during the spring summer months, looking out on the garden, watching the cats roll around in the grass or propelling themselves into mid air whilst chasing butterflies and midges, (and the occasional birdie, naughty cats). During autumn and winter I’d keep it by the fire in the lounge where i’d no doubt drift off to sleep from the warmth and the gentle rocking whilst reading a good book with a fine glass of wine on lovely lazy days.

With that in mind it is only fair that I would put this in my daughter’s room (although I’d love it for myself)!!!

  154. I would love to put this in our living/dining room, I love to crochet so this would be great for that and i like it will be easy to move so i can put it by the window when the sun shines and it could be an extra seat for when relatives visit! x

  155. This would be perfect for my first house! We have no furniture at all at the moment, so a luxury chair like this would be amazing!!

  156. This is lovely I’d probably put it in my bedroom in the evening for rocking my newborn baby to sleep and move it to the living room for daytime snuggles.

  157. I would place it in the conservatory so I could sit and relax whilst looking out into the garden

  158. I would put this in the bedroom, so I could chill at the end of the day and gently rock whilst reading before bed

  169. I would out it in the nursery, I could use if for breast feeding bump then when he gets older we can sit on it whilst reading him a bedtime story and rocking him to sleep. Only 6 and a bit weeks til he arrives :) x

  170. I would definitely put this in my bedroom so that I could listen to my music and rock, rock, rock!

  171. This would look great in the bedroom. Hubby and I share a bedroom, but if I were to win I would kick him out and move the rocker in. What if he touched it without washing his hands first? Couldn’t take the chance … this rocker would be mine, all mine!

  172. I would put it in the kitchen by the patio doors – so I could sit and watch the wildlife in the garden x

  173. This would go in the boyfriend study. A place for me to reside whilst reading a graphic novel and listen to Steve playing the bass

  174. It will have to go in the kitchen/dining room. It would be placed between the stove and the patio doors for good views and catching the sun

  175. I’d put the chair in the bay window in my bedroom, amazing to sit / rock there, reading books and watching the world go by

  176. I would give this gorgeous chair to my mum for xmas, for her lounge! She’s always wanted a rocking chair and I know she’d adore this!

  177. It would be lovely in my bedroom to sit and watch the world go by but in summer it would be nice to use in my conservatory. I love just looking into my garden watching the birds and enjoying the results of my hard work there.

  178. Oh WOW – my back, neck, arms and soul yearn to have this in my babies room.
    Night time feeding bliss!

  179. This would have to go in my living room, to rock myself when I am having trouble sleeping!

  180. Oh it’s lovely. I would place it in my bedroom in the walk-in bay window overlooking the countrside fields. I could just loaf around on it, catch up with a spot of reading or do some crochet.

  181. I can just see this in my lovely warm attic on a winter’s day with a blanket and looking out over the city. Bliss!

  182. This chair would look perfect in my newly decorated spare room. Perfect to escape to with a good book for a bit chill out time.

  183. By the window in the bedroom so I can sit and relax in the morning with my newspaper before venturing downstairs to inspect the chaos my children will have left behind!

  184. That pretty chair would be going into the child’s bedroom! I have just the spot for it!

  185. This chair is so beautiful, if I had one I would put it in my nursery as I’m due another baby very soon and would love to have this to feed in

  186. It would go really well in the lounge, close to the fire so that I can stay cosy on these cold, wet and windy nights

  187. Whenever i feel stressed, i can rock away the blues, in whichever room i fancy, as it’s easy movable too;)

  188. I would place it in the den, where I like to go to have quite time to sit and read my kindle. I can just see myself sat gently rocking away peacefully on this beautiful chair.

  189. I would place it in my landing hall facing the window so I can watch the world go by.

  190. Ooh, this would definitely go in my conservatory. I moved just under a year ago, and this is the first time I’ve ever had a conservatory. This gorgeous rocker would be the perfect finishing touch :)

  191. in our spare bedroom it would look great as it has lots of natural light and blues and whites.

  192. I’d love this in my sitting room next to the fireplace, I would love to rock & dose in front of the fire, I have the spot for it!

  193. l would put this lovely chair in my porch, sit in there and watch the world go back.

  194. This would look brill in my spare room which I am turning into a cosy reading room for me to relax in.

  195. I would put in in my living room so I could relax in luxury enjoying the views of the River Humber :)


  197. In my baby’s nursery, I’m 15 weeks pregnant and this would be ideal when the baby gets here x

  198. I would be generous and put it in my partners office so he can have a relax and look at the river outside our window when working. Hopefully he won’t fall asleep!

  199. The rocker has just dropped off my rocking chair and it can’t be fixed. Having “me” time in my summerhouse with a book and a coffee and my rocker…stops me going off mine!! Good luck everyone :-)

  200. I would have to put it in the lounge where I could enjoy it, and show it off to everyone who visits.

  201. I would have this stunning chair in my bedroom, as this is my safe haven and where I go when I need to unwind and just have 5 mins out of the chaos that life can often bring!

  202. I’d love this chair to use both in my sunny front room and in the baby’s bedroom upstairs. It looks so stylish and comfy.

  203. What a wonderful modern design of a traditional rocking chair. So many places I would like that chair, in the Summer it would have to be the conservatory to enjoy the garden and hopefully the SUN! In the winter, either the kitchen to sit and smell the ‘food’ in the warmth or in the bedroom to read a book / kindle.

  204. In the front room in winter, by the log burner nice and cosy and in the conservatory in summer. Both involve feet up and a good book.

  205. i would keep this in my conservatory, perfect seat to relax in while i enjoy the view of the garden and the wildlife

  206. Out in the conservatory for extra relaxation for my wife and I (once we decide who gets to sit in the chair!) :-)

  207. I would love to have this in my bedroom so I can keep it all for myself. It looks great for reading in or just having some me time.

  208. I would put this in my spare bedroom that I have turned into a little girlie snug away from the joys of football on many, many sports channels!

  209. i would love to have this in my baby girls nursery ready for mummy/baby cuddles when shes born(due december) :) xx

  210. I would rock merrily in the living room, cuddled in a corner with my little dog who works as well as the radiator on a chilly autumn night!

  211. In my bedroom, it would be ideal for the night feeds coming up in the next few months :)

  212. Looks like a lovely chair to share with a good book. I have a snug little corner in my bedroom that it would be perfect in.

  213. I’d have it in my living room so I could sit and knit or read in the evenings in comfort

  214. I would actually place this at my sons house, in my grandaughter’s bedroom, so that I could read her a bedtime story everytime I visit (& I would let them do the same when I am not there!)

  215. Just bought our first family home. It has beautiful bay windows and the Rocker would go beautifully in the bedroom whilst nursing or in the back living room (which will be my reading/sewing room – I love to quilt) which has patio doors overlooking the garden. I’ll keep fingers crossed x

  216. Would love to replace my old wicker chair in the conservatory with a real and classy rocking chair. This would make my afternoon tea and biscuits ritual perfect!

  217. I would give this to my sister in law she has just had a baby and this would really help her during night feeds and nursing back to sleep in the babies bedroom

  218. It would look beautiful in my bedroom . It gets the light at the end of the day . I often sit in there reading , but at the moment perched on the bed. I love the idea of sitting in this whilst I get engrossed in a good novel.

  219. it would take pride of place in my living room and woe betide anyone else who sits in it!!

  220. In my living room window where the sun shines all day long so I can sit and read in warmth and comfort.

  221. In my now cosy conservatory. With a good book and a hot drink I can watch my garden wildlife in comfort and style! Fingers crossed.

  222. My conservatory – so I can relax looking out on my garden whilst my husband does the weeding :)

  223. I would have this wonderful chair in the nursery,it’s perfect for cuddles and reading time with my little boy.

  224. I would have this next to my bedroom window then I could take in the views of an evening and chill out away from the hustle and bustle of the noise downstairs.

  225. In our sitting room. My husband has ‘his’ chair and this would definitely be mine!

  226. I’d place it in my bedroom, by the window. I have a good view of a river, trees, dog-walkers etc so it’s the perfect place to sit, rock, and daydream!

  227. Where better than in the living room, where everyone can admire it, though I think I would have to claim it as mine!

  228. I would love this fab rocker for one of my bedrooms that the grandchildren sleep in as I have just become a grandma again & this would be great to rock our crystal to sleep in my arms,
    Thank You.

  229. I’d put it in my daughter’s nursery and it would be a perfect place for cuddles and kisses.

  230. I would love to put this gorgeous chair in my new babies nursery. It would make the long nightime feeds a bit easier! x

  231. I’d put this in my conservatory, it so relaxing out there anyway, that would be heaven!!!

  232. I would put it near my patio doors so I could sit and watch the birds feeding while reading a good book!

  233. I;d have this in my bedroom a place to unwind,
    Sit back, relax listening to my favourite band,
    While rocking gently to the beat in time.

    A really lovely chair with lot’s of style,
    It’s modern and contemporary,
    But will match in all the while.

    I can see me in it now reading a good book,
    Before bedtime in the glow of my lamp’
    In my little Music and reading Nook.

    (Tweeted @firestar_louise)

  234. I would put it in the dining room away from the tv where I could sit, rock and read my book in peace

  235. Hello! The chair is lovely. I would put it in my little girls room so we could sit in it together to read.
    Thank you.

  236. This chair is lovely. I would place it in the nursery so I can rock my baby to sleep or relax in it whilst feeding her.

  237. It would go in the lounge. Would look very nice and might help me get the new addition to the family off to sleep a bit easier. Xx

  238. I would put this in my lounge near the fire,so I can snuggle up with a nice cosy blanket near the warm fire and rock myself to sleep :-)

  239. I would place the beautiful Loaf Rocker Rocking Chair in my bedroom ,it would match my room perfectly.

  240. I would love to have this chair in my bedroom but I am sure my grandsons would all want to have a turn in it because it is so irresistible!

  241. I would put this in my bedroom covered with comfy cushions so I can curl up and read in it.

  242. I would love this for my baby’s nursery, she just loves being rocked to sleep and it would save my poor knees from standing and rocking!

  243. I’d love to place the chair in the sitting area near the fireplace and use it for endless reading during the winter

  244. I would love this for my baby’s nursery. He’s due in January and I bought an old rocking chair for his room with the intention of sanding and painting it…I didn’t account for the fact that when you rock the arm comes loose and you fall sideways off the chair in a not too dignified manner. This would be brilliant as a replacement nursing chair.

  245. This would go lovely our my landing in the bay window overlooking our wonderful views of the mendip hills!

  246. I’d put it in the conservatory so that i can enjoy the view of the surrounding countryside

  247. I’d put it in the lounge so I could sit in it and listen to music on a stressful day

  248. I would have to put this in the living room, until the conservatory was built specially for it.

  249. i would put this lovely chair in bedroom in front of the double french windows so i could sit and read my books.

  250. I would put this in the kitchen / diner area so that I can rest up between cooking the main meal

  251. Such a beautiful chair , I would have to put it in my kitchen where I spend many a hour talking to the children , watching them play , it would be the perfect addition to my house x

  252. It would go in our middle bedroom we have just decorated and the neutral colours would fit right in

  253. I would keep it in my bedroom – a place to go and chill and read a book – peace and quiet. I love this chair.

  254. I’d put it in the living room, next to our coal fire, just great for long winter days!

  255. what a beautiful rocking chair i would have it in the living room in the corner as i have three little kittens and they like siting on my lap what comfort to rock gently not only would i fall asleep so would they as we,d all be so relaxed

  256. i’d put it in my office /reading room so that i could have quiet times reading my latest book snuggled in a gorgeous chair

  257. I love rocking chairs they somehow making sitting more fulfilling, if I won it would have pride of place in the living room and I would be claiming it as my chair! :)

  258. My dog ate my late rocking chair, which I loved to sit in listening to music so I’d put this one in my record room.

  259. I would give this chair to my dad to put in his lounge. He is 89 next month and still as active as ever (plays badminton once a week!!) so maybe I could get him to slow down (just a tad) by encouraging him to relax in this lovely chair.

  260. When I move house this chair would make me feel at home in whichever room I put it in!

  261. Back room so I can sit there with the French doors open watching the sun go down, in the summer of course. In the winter it would be great to have it in front of a hot wood burner which I don’t own yet.

  262. My nan is having to move in with my aunts family and I’d love to give this to her to put in her new sitting room

  263. Right by the patio door of the lounge which leads out to the deck. In winter I can be inside in the warm watching the outdoors. In summer I will drag it outside to enjoy the sunshine and views whilst rocking and occasionally dozing

  264. I’d put this lovely chair in the bedroom that I will have once I’ve stripped all the really sticky wallpaper off the walls, had the holey ceiling re-plastered and chiselled all the awful tiles off the floor, sanded and painted the floor boards.

    After all that I’ll need a sit down. Phew.

  265. Probably have to build a Veranda to put it on, nothing better than watching the sun go down while sitting in a rocking chair talking about everything and nothing

  266. I’ve just moved into a new flat. It’s pretty cosy so we’re turning the lounge into a snug. No furniture yet though, but can’t wait for cosy wintery nights in there! This chair would be the perfect finishing touch :)

  267. i would put it by my window, where i can see the sea, and i would sit there with a blanket, hot chocolate and a book.

  268. Lovely, I’d put it in the lounge – in the bay window, although it might migrate out onto the patio in the summer!

  269. In our bedroom – this would be great for rocking our baby in comfort in the middle of the night.

  270. I would love this for my baby boys nursery, right in the corner, by his crib, it would look perfect! Its such a lovely chair

  271. I would love this for my sun room, it would be perfect for relaxing looking at the garden……. once the kids toys were all tidy or that would just annoy me! lol x

  272. Oooh! I don’t know whether I would put it in the living room or bedroom, but it’s beautiful.

  273. I would put this beautiful chair in the nursery we are currently decorating for the little girl we are expecting in the new year

    Have tweeted too as @solarsangel

  274. I would love to say mine, but my daughter has been asking for a rocking chair lately so I guess I know that it would end up in her room!!

  275. I would put it in my bedroom, there ism’t anywhere to sit in there other than the bed, so it would be lovely to sit back with a good book in some peace and quiet, rocking away!

  276. I would put this gorgeous rocker in my lounge. Perfect for fireside rocking, with a book and hot chocolate!

  277. This chair, and all the items shown on this page are stunning, I need to start saving !! I’d put this chair in my living room :-)

  278. Catching up with posts as the winter night’s draw in
    I see Fabric of My Life has a great competition
    To win Loaf’s new rocker rocking chair
    So I’ll answer this with style and flair

    I’d sit with my gorgeous girl in her bedroom
    Having cuddles, reading and singing tunes
    We’ll talk about the world as eyes start to close
    Dream of the future; all content and doze

    About the world

  279. I would put this in my spare room as I often sit in there to read as it is a nice sunny room.

  280. I’d keep this lovely rocker pride of place in the hall way so everyone can see it as they come in and I could rock away in the evenings whilst on the phone :)

  281. I would put this chair in my bedroom under the window. I’d use it for daytime reading, and with a big comfy cushion, the dog can use it for sleeping on at night so she doesn’t keep pushing me out of bed!

  282. I would put it in my sitting room,replacing the very noisy old recliner that my teenage son bought from the last jumble sale– the creaks and clonks it makes drowns out all forms of communication!

  283. I would love to sit in this and look out over the fields that back onto our house its a relaxing sight ar the best of times this chair would just make it perfect.

  284. Maybe the bathroom..Snuggled up in a warm bathrobe and soft Loaf towels after a luxurious bubble bath…rocking in this rocker would be wonderful…

  285. Bedroom – takes me ages to get going in the morning, and the prospect of a few recuperative minutes in one of these after a shower just might get me on the move….

  286. As I have just reached 50 I think this is the only rocking I will be doing from now on.

  287. I’d put it in my reading corner in the living room. It would be so nice to relax on this with a blanket, a book and a cup of tea Have also tweeted @NaomiSFB

  288. oh wow that is stunning and if i was so lucky enough to win then id sit next to the window gazing out on the cold winters day while sewing and sipping a cup of tea and then in the evening rocking and reading to the kids while there sat next to the open fire drinking milky hot chocolates before bed,oh that would be bliss,thank you for the chance x

  289. We have a lovely cosy, homely sitting area as part of our family room/kitchen. Guests often don’t make it to the lounge as we all hang out in this lovely comfy place. There is room for a rocking chair – how perfect would the Loaf Rocker be?! Gorgeous.

  290. You’ve heard of a man cave?! I have a girly grotto and this rocking chair would look gorgous in it. Of course the rest of the family could use it. For a small fee!

  291. I am hoping to move into my first home soon and I plan to decorate it similar to the loaf lounge that’s dressed in the first photo of this page — got a scrapbook for all my design ideas in readiness. An elegant rocking chair would fit right in and is a differential I hadn’t thought to introduce. Fingers crossed.

  293. Quite simply, I would have this rocker in front of the range in my kitchen, just think of the cold winter evenings being rocked away in comfort and heat.

  294. In my Bedroom ( I have a view of the rough sea’s) with a nice pile of books beside it for me to relax in the winter months!

  295. We are just having a conservatory built and this would be perfect for those lazy evenings

  296. It’s gorgeous! I’d definitely use it for my baby girls nursery, perfect for the night feed :)

  297. Our Conservatory so I could read a book and look out into the garden in style and comfort.

  298. As an insomniac I would put this awesome chair in the bedroom so I could sit and rock when sleep evades me (as usual) and maybe I’d let the wife use it now and again too!

  299. This gorgeous rocking chair would replace the ratty old armchair I have been longing to get rid of for ages.

  300. This lovely rocking chair would fit like a glove in my bedroom and then I could sit, read, rock and relax in comfort and style.

  301. I would put it in my sons bedroom for when he wakes up on a night and needs cuddling back to sleep

  302. This would be a fabulous piece for my bedroom. The best place to read a book and rock away the stresses and strains of the day.

  303. I would put it in the kitchen to relax with a glass of wine while my husband cooks the dinner

  304. I would place this in my dressing room where i spend time reading books, getting ready and would love to have this to sit in. amazing prize. x

  305. Love to win this and place it in my lounge near the woodburner fire, so I could rock and warm myself and my heart as I dream of good times. x
