I finally bought it: a sofa table

I have been trying to find The Perfect Sofa Table for a long time. Years.

What a total pain in the a$$, y’all.

I had my heart set on working with RecycledBrooklyn.

They make beautiful furniture from reclaimed wood. I wanted to support local business while also avoiding shipping costs. Alas, they were unresponsive, something that is apparently typical.

I eventually found what I wanted on Etsy via Happy. Home. Austin.

And it’s here! I love it.

An alternative to Crate and Barrel’s Dubois mirror

You may remember that I posted about the evil Crate and Barrel Dubois mirror.

To reiterate, Dubois mirrors are notoriously difficult to hang and some don’t even match-up with respect to size and hanging mechanism.

I recently got a catalog from Art.com (catalog? How retro!) and noticed their gold bevel mirror. Although they lack the distressed look of the Dubois mirror, they are much less expensive than Crate and Barrel’s Dubois mirror.

Mirrors

From the web site and catalog, I couldn’t tell if the hanging mechanism is an improvement or not so I emailed customer service. They kindly let me know that hanging wire and hardware are included with the mirror.

Sweet!

I have to have it: true New Yorker poster

Via Two Arms Inc.

 

Thanks to Blue Carrot Shop for making me aware of Two Arms Inc. Now I have to decide if it’s new decor for home or my office.

If you aren’t into New York (!) you might like this or this instead.

I want it: Urban Outfitters settee

Yes, it’s pink. Very pink.

I love it. And I want it.

A google image search makes me think it is an Urban Outfitters settee–which is backordered, of course.

Has anyone bought furniture from Urban Outfitters before? If so, how’s the quality?
