Furniture Find - Rope Chair

I have been on a chair hunt for my back living room.  Currently I have the large sectional back there, and think a nice set of chairs would be a perfect offset to balance the room.  So...yesterday I was online perusing through all of my favorite blogs, and came across this post by Erin Gates at Elements of Style Blog.  She highlighted the Rope Chair, and all of their glory.  The Rope Chair is a classic look with a twist that just so happens to be extremely comfortable as well. 

This photo came directly from Erin's post - I just love the relaxed vibe these chairs bring:

You can easily use these as a pair or have a single all by their lonesome;).  I love how Erin says, "chairs are such a great way to convey your style and add some interest into an otherwise bland space.  They are little works of art!".  I couldn't agree more - and so began my obsession with the Rope Chair.  Literally, this obsession just started yesterday.  So tonight I am shopping at Urban Outfitters at the mall and what do I stumble into when I walk into the dressing room?!!  How pretty is she?!


The original Hans Wegner rope chairs are pretty pricey...and when I say pretty pricey...I mean I will never own one EVER.  Seriously, they are amazing but I just don't know when I will be at a point in my life where I could justify spending that much on one chair - ouch!  However, still drop dead gorgeous.

The price on the look-a-like at Urban Outfitters was $329, however, because it was on the floor and had been visibly used I ended up getting a steal on it!  So while my husband thought I was taking an innocent trip up to the mall - I came back with a chair, lol.  Seriously though - how could I not buy this?!  It was meant to be, furniture heaven for this beauty.

This is a perfect example that you never know what you can get until you ask for it.  Ask for that discount when you are furniture shopping - point out the small dings/wear marks, and request a discounted price for these defects.  Purchasing items off of the floor, already used and not brand new - shipped to you in the box is a great way to save money.

Here is it sitting in it's new home - my back family room; that I am STILL working on.  I obviously want to buy a second one now to make it a pair....however, that can wait for a few weeks;).


What do you all think?!  Have you found any furniture steals lately?
