A Bit of Catalog Love

Some of the new Spring additions to the piles of catalogs I get caught my eye. I am seriously considering a couple of buys here.

Crate and Barrel Josephine Chaise at $1299.0, very pretty! I also am liking it paired with the Avery Bombe Chest, $799.00

Give me a tufted sofa! Crate and Barrel Azure Sofa, $1899.00. Pretty nice photo styling here.

I am loving the red Pagoda Etagere (Crate and Barrel) $349. What is really cool about it is that it is actually a series of tables that stack which you can see here. The Jardin Chair for $799 is pretty cute too.

I am thinking this bench at the end of my bed. What do you think? Ballard Design Macau Bench goes for $399.95. (C'mon, just say $400).

Isn't this the cutest red chair? I love the woven seat. It makes it a bit different from similar metal chairs. Anthropologie Emile Chair at $198.00

I have toile bedding in a guest room that is almost exactly like this, but this Toile Wingback Chair from Anthropologie ($1998.00) looks like someone colored in parts with a magic marker. I love that. I may have to add it to my guest room.

This Coconut Chandelier from Wisteria ($649.00) has been on my wish list for awhile. Not sure where to put it, but it is pretty cool dont'cha think? I think I can find a place for it. Lovin' the Black Forest chairs too ($499).

So this is another bench I might try at the end of my bed. Wisteria Iron Bamboo Bench, $349. The price is great! AND they say it folds up for easy storage! Which bench do you all like better? I could use another opinion here.

OK, I just bought the three Ikat pillows on the right. I know Ikat has all of the symptoms of being too overexposed ( all over blogland, Pottery Barn's catalog, in Target, etc.) but I just really liked 'em and they are going to be perfect in my Family Room. Nuff said. They are from Wisteria at $79.00. They say their inserts feel like goose-down....hmm, what does that mean exactly? Are they, or are they not goose-down? I will let you know when I get them. I am also thinking these cobalt blue garden stools are different enough in color and shape to have some real staying power. ($249.00 not bad!) And loving the Dhurrie Rug too ($649 for a 9'x12'! What a swinging deal!)

Just a random sampling of what I have been keeping my eyes on lately.

I love this post. It is so gratifying to order things from catalogs and only have to wait a week or two, versus 12-24 weeks from some of the to the trade resources.
