July Window Shopping

Earlier this week I went to World Market to check out a new chair for our living room - their Elliott wing back in magnum. We've been shopping for a new chair for months and I really wanted something a little higher quality that would last us a while, but we weren't quite ready to spend upwards of a thousand dollars on an armchair. The Elliott chair wound up being the perfect color and style so I brought it home with me (promise an updated living room photo soon). Before leaving though, I spent some time walking around the store and checking out all their new items. They always have fun new patterned rugs, pillows and curtains but I was also excited about some of their new furniture pieces and color options. Below are a few of my favorites.

Love those legs!

Indoor / Outdoor Pouffes

I was completely smitten by that huge mirror in the third picture and kind of want to go back and buy it for one of my in-laws guest rooms. I thought the indoor/outdoor pouffes would be great on a covered patio or sunroom. I'm also really into antler decor these days and might go back to buy a handful of those for our coffee table and my mom's guest room. And while I wasn't a huge fan of the heavy bolt look on the folding metal chair, I loved the wooden seat. I'm still trying to figure out if there's a way I can recreate that with a different metal folding chair. Any ideas?

On the furniture building note, last week you all voted on leg and trim ideas for the pallet entry table I'm currently building and the majority chose a natural look (no stain or paint) and metal legs. After gathering the feedback, I started doing more shopping for metal leg options and found a lot of great American-made pieces on Etsy. I like a mix of rustic and industrial so I've narrowed it down to a few modern options for the base.

I plan to let you know in a few weeks which design I went with, share a photo of the finished table and link to it in our shop. In the meantime, I'm spending the weekend collecting more local pallets for additional furniture projects (headboards!) and talking shop with my brother and husband. Look forward to sharing more furniture posts soon!
