cheap 'n chic?

maison21 will be spending part of his sunday afternoon going to pier1 imports, of all places. why you ask? well, m21 was recently at one of his clients' homes and they received a pier1 sale flyer in the mail, in which we proceeded to spot these great tables, at $49.98 & $59.98 respectively:



not bad, right? and that those prices, they sure look cute enough that feel we have to go check them out in person- if the finished product is even close to the cuteness of the pictures, we're going to snap a couple up- have no idea where or how they will be used, but we'll figure that out later.

when we googled "pier1" to find out where in the heck they have stores (either east hollywood or the western edge of culver city. at 5.5 miles away, they are each well outside of the 2.5 mile comfort zone in which we prefer to spend 98% of our time- but oh well- we'll make the sacrifice and brave l.a. traffic in search of cheap n' chic). we also saw these kinda cute little pagoda-esque etageres at $99.00, so we'll be checking them out too.



we'll let everyone know if these finds pan out, and we hope y'all are having a cheap 'n chic sunday as well....

post update: saw the etagére in person- way cute for the price- i didn't buy 'cuz i want two in red, and the pier1 i went to only had black, so now i'm on a hunt. blue tables were fab as well- picked up two. they were sold out of the red.

The etageres are way-jazzy. Can't wait to hear how they looked in person.

Mrs. E. and I walked away from the tables when we were buying our market umbrella and really cheap wicker chairs (which are now being painted "Red Ochre") Wish we had picked up the tables, too. A couple of red etageres sounds brilliant.

The etageres used to come in red! I decorated a client's house last Christmas and they had that Pier 1 red etagere for the holidays...then I went to Crate and Barrell a few months ago and saw almost the SAME one for like three times the price!

emily- just goes to show, that our clients need us to find them the good stuff- no matter what the price!

I have the pagoda in red. It is perfect.

Very heavy, substantial, and the parts come apart, so you can actually use it to make smaller shevles/sides if you want.

It stands very tall and has a light, but confident impact on my livingroom. I love it.
