Improving the Appearance of Chair?My husband bought a zero gravity chair. I think it looks awful. He wants it in the living room. Our house is an open floor plan, so I can see this eyesore no matter where I am. It doesn't match any of our traditional wood furniture. It looks like a giant camp chair which would be okay, maybe, if we lived in a tent, but we don't. Does anyone have any idea for a covering of some sort that will minimize the hideousness of this thing?
