Figured I'd update this since I posed the question to the thread. We ended up going with an early Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin lounge chair. Given that our house has more of a bungalow feel, we felt the rattan detailing and corduroy cushions give it a warmer feel that's more in line with our house. While I love the hardcore MCM stuff, not living in a white-walled concrete box makes it a bit harder to blend. I think this chair strikes the right balance. Now just need to find a small end table and should be good to go...
That looks very good.

I think the table would be best if it were dark wood, very simple, center-legged, round or oval, slightly larger (but not much more) than the silver round drinks tray and oval votive.

Any plans for maybe a white door/doors to close off the recess?

No plans for for the recess as of now. That stems from the likelihood that we'll be renovating our bathroom in the next year or so. That wall backs up to the master bathroom and we're likely to extend the existing closet, meaning that recess will be walled off. That will create a whole new dynamic to the room, obviously, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Totally agree on the side table. The hunt for that... continues. Thanks for the thoughts!

I see, that makes sense.

The table will make itself known to you, I think, because you have so much else in place now. Maybe even in a thrift store/swap meet/etc. Some of the Jens Risom pieces might work too, like his "T.710" or "Triangle Table", but even a real antique, something simple and direct but not excessively angular (like an English country pedestal side table) could be good too.
