It is mind-boggling that Target has not even been mentioned thus far into our blogging experience. It is our home away from home (along with Lowe’s) and has provided us with many a piece of furniture that we adore. In fact, our Thomas O Brien media console, two leather storage ottomans, dining table, Magnavox flat panel TV and gorge Victoria Hagan end tables all hail from Tarjay (the French pronunciation is tres chic, non?).
And last night we made out like bandits again. We returned home with a swank leather Parsons chair for my desk ($99), a stainless steel floor lamp ($29) for our light deprived den, and this ironstone serving platter ($9) along with two small $2 dishes (which we have converted into a food & water station for our cutie patootie pooch).
The new Parsons chair even inspired me to clean up my desk and store my rarely-used printer/fax in a closet, instead of under my beautiful white lacquered desk (one of our favorite wedding presents). And have I mentioned that the padded leather chair is about 673% more comfortable than my old $20 Ikea chair? Please refer to these infomercial-style “Before and After” photos below to see the added comfort and joy associated with the new chair:
