martini anyone?

so we sorta ho-hummed through our new west elm catalog yesterday. not that there was anything wrong with the selections offered or nuthin'- lots of clean contemporary furniture at inexpensive prices, exactly what you expect from west elm, and we liked the brighter, pop-ier feel of some of the new stuff, but nothing really wowed us. until page 65, then we sat up and paid attention! m21 is loving this little aluminum "martini"table @$129, a chic modern alternative to the garden stool. table or stool, inside or out, we can really get behind chic & cheap versatile little pieces like this! offered in white, persimmon or silver, we think this little puppy will perk up lots of spaces...

Oh, it's a table. *pout*

(Is it a bad thing that my answer was "Yes!" at 11:00 a.m. on a Tuesday?)

Bonjour! My Dictionary.com word of the day is 'atelier' so naturally I thought of you. Hope your new year is 'tres heureux' so far! Those little stools are very cute. I guess everyone's realized how handy a garden seat can be in the house... so it looks like they'll be with us for a while longer. HomeGoods had like a thousand last time I was there!
