I'm love sick ... and not for the first time ... with Restoration Hardware
OK, internet, I love computers. Computers are what brought us together. But I also hate them. I want to get going on some posts inspired by domino, but I'm trying to use my scanner, and it isn't on speaking terms with my laptop.
Instead, I'll talk about these chairs from Restoration Hardware, which I am just sick in love with: I love everything about these. They're like something out of a 1930s movie--quietly glamorous. The graceful lines, the button tufting! They'd be perfect in a pearly textured pale leather with tons of nailhead trim. Wouldn't they? Witty and elegant. Like Carole Lombard, if she were a chair. Sigh.
Unfortunately, I don't need them. Even though they're on sale.
On the other hand, I do need black chairs for my eat-in kitchen. I'm ordering a pedestal table with a black granite top, and in distressed black, these chairs would work with it.
And they're on sale, too, $240 marked down to $169.99, with an extra 10 percent off if you use the RCTD709 coupon code.
So I just ordered them. Even though they're more Kate Hepburn than Carole Lombard.
