Retail Report: Pottery Barn


I saw this chair when loitering in Pottery Barn waiting for my beeper to buzz indicating my million hour wait for a table at the Cheesecake Factory had finally come to an end. I have to admit I am kind of in love. I think the floral print is really gorgeous, especially the orchids. Green is one of of my all time favorite colors, but this chair probably would in no way fit with my current decorating scheme. I would buy a set of these chairs for my imaginary home, where they would sit in a solarium surrounded by orchids. I might mix them with some white wicker furniture and an antiqued mirrored coffee table. To be honest the chair also scares me a little. While I find it quite fetching, it is a little too close to a bad 60s cliche for me to be entirely comfortable with it. Good thing I'm too poor to have to seriously think about it.

I just caught this at PB tonight as well. I think I'd love it for a few weeks then the "what was I thinking" would catch up with me.

I also think it's really fetching, but I can see what you're saying. It could easily go into the realm of "bad '60s cliche". This is the beauty of not having enough money to shop at Pottery Barn--we're never in danger of making an impulse purchase! ;-)

Ohhh! I have a sun room filled with orchids. But your ending observations made me think twice too.
