room...this time you knew what I meant.
The backrest of the couch look crushed because of the packing. I should have ironed the covers.
Now, the couch was in. We had a pair of side tables and the coffee table which I was planning to use. Now, I was supposed to get a pair of chairs.
We had planned for our house warming 3 weeks after we moved in. We had spread 5 house warming parties over 5 weekends (we had invited 10-12 families at each party). So, I wanted some basic furniture before that.
As usual, I started searching stores online for the pair of chairs. What I did not expect was the price for a pair of chairs would be more than what I had paid for the couch.
3 years ago, there were not enough options for the chairs that I see now. I shortlisted from Overstock, Pier1, Costplus, Target and IKEA. Mr. Tweaks rejected few of them (based on the color, designs on them, or style of the chair).
And what I liked, were not available at store. And if ordered online, the shipping costs were high. And the chairs that I really, really liked were pretty expensive.
These still have a place in my heart....even at $699 and $899 each.
Three years ago, I had started a liking for damask.
Mr. Tweaks did not know what "Damask" meant. So I am sharing this for those who did not know. It's a design pattern like these.
3 years ago, these damask pattern were all over the blogosphere. Drapes, stencils, wallpapers, pillows, headboards and chairs.
And when I saw these chairs on Target for $199 each, I ordered a pair of them.
Will share the color I went with in my next post with a before and after.
Stay warm and have a wonderful week ahead.
