BEND.chair.LOVE.

I saw this chair. I fell in love with this chair. I tracked it down.  

It is $250 for one. I then learned that this is supposed to be a steal, because it's a collaboration West Elm is doing with Bend. 



You know, these guys. Apparently these beauties near $500 each

I get it. They are intricate, labor intensive, and should last forgever. But I'm putting my first yard together for spring and blowing my entire budget one a pair of chairs is just not going to work for me. Well, it could, I just wouldn't have a table to pair them with, or any pretty flowers in my garden.  Just me, Lola, and our two chairs. 

Then I found these at World Market. No they don't "bend", and no they aren't that intricate, but they are bright and pretty, and that's what I liked about the West Elm one's to begin with. 

Oh, and they were only $50 each. Can't wait to show you my yard in all her glory!
