This chair, the cheapest of the bunch, was REALLY light colored, and was very rough and cheap feeling. No good.
The second ( a bit more expensive option) was a teeny bit darker, and felt just as yucky! They didn't even have the darker, bigger chair in stock, but I assume it was the same material :(
Pier 1's selection as really limited, and I was NOT about to spending $250 on a chair that was propbably going to get sat in a handful of times, and would be in the garage for most of the year.
So I headed over to Superstore, as I had seen a great little advertising feature in House and Home magazine last night, with some great outdoor living stuff. Yeah, no chairs, and none of the cute patio stuff I was jonesing for either....They did have faux woven one that seemed reasonable, so I am keeping it on my "just-in-case" list.
Okay, fine! Over to Home Outfitters - the only single chair they had for sale was a woven style as well. I don't hate it, but it was too expensive considering it was not my first choice!
A couple other local, independent stores only made me more upset... so looks like I have my work cut out for me tomorrow! I am hoping that HomeSense will be my savior!
Have a great night!
