All Grown Up

10.21.10

So I have some exciting news. Well, it’s only exciting to me, because I’m a nerd, but anyway… after buying stuff off Craigslist for years I finally sold something! Easy peasy! Makes me feel all grown up! *sniffle* (Like getting married and having a baby didn’t do that already or something. Like I said: NERD) Anywho… when we moved to the coast 5 years ago we wanted to start over with furniture so we sold our house out west furnished. We bought a few cheap pieces from Ikea initially (like these pello chairs) to have somewhere to sit during the renovation, but since then we’ve been slowly buying up quality furniture and getting rid of those cheaper pieces.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m no snob. Me and IKEA are like this:

fingers crossed

We’re tight. But it sure is nice to have those chairs gone! Now I just need to sell my lilberg rocker in prep for the nursery re-do. Any takers?

Soft Rock

Do you ever come across a design and think ‘Wow, that’s clever!’ ? These felt stones from Ronel Jordaan do that for me. They look like large solid stones, but they’re actually soft wool felt. Ronel’s interior collection includes rock cushions, pillows, throws, curtains, lighting and pebble rugs. All very pretty.

CB2 Miami

cb2 miami

We stopped by the CB2 store in Miami last week. Fun, fun! I wish they had more locations. It’s nice to be able to see an item in person before buying it. For example, I posted here about knitted poufs and mentioned the one from CB2. From the images online and in the catalog, I didn’t think that it looked like very good quality, but after seeing them in person I may have had a change of heart. The knitting is thicker and a little nicer than I expected. I’m not saying they are on the same level as the Urchin Poufs or anything, but for $75 they make a unique, multifunctional piece of furniture that will bring a little color and texture to your room. Not too shabby. Also, they’re now available in gray and orange. I think the green may be discontinued, but they still have them in the stores.
