If I Could, I would…

If I could, I would but clearly I can’t so I won’t….buy these chairs…

The Pottery Barn Teen, Lattice Ooh La La Armchair is fab and a great price at $349.  If I could, I would buy them in the light gray and put them in our living room where are dark gray tub chairs are.

The existing chairs are embarrassingly too huge for our space.  Even though they don’t look too big in the photos, they are clunky in person.  While, I realize they are all wrong scale wise, I do love the look of them and I couldn’t justify selling them when we knew we would only live here for a short term.  So these puppies will be lugged around with me and squeezed into itty bitty places in the hopes that one day they’ll have a wide open space.

But the PB chairs would be perfection in a studio.  So not teenish.  Always remember Pottery Barn Teen is a hidden gem of a store.

    I’m always pleasantly surprised at PB Teen’s selection…some really great things that don’t scream “adolescent”! Kate, tell me, what is the artwork in your dining room? It’s so cool!

      Yes, they are a great source! Thank you about the painting! It’s actually from Anthropologie! I bought it about three years ago now so I don’t think they sell it anymore. It was hidden in a corner turned over in their sale section and I scooped it up.

    oh, kate, the fabric on those PBT chairs is soooooo serena & lily!! and for $350 a chair?? a steal. but those two club/tube chairs in your living room are really unique and while they may not be exactly the correct scale, they add a richness of dimension that works; so there! does PBTeen have a separate store?or just the catalogue??
