Lunch Break Shopping - Pier one

I really like Pier One.  
Among all the hodge podge of randomness and scents, you'll 
find some really great stuff. 
I ventured in with a mission.  
Mom and I saw this PB lookalike online and I wanted to check it out 
 in person since it was a comparable 
style but mucho cheaper. 
Verdict:  D-
It may look like a good copy of PB's Seagrass Wingback, but the
back and arms are very unsturdy and it wasn't very substantial in size.
The $299 price tag = You get what you pay for.
Spring for the real deal
If you want the seagrass look, this one is much sturdier.
I have these in my breakfast nook and love them.
Even though they don't have the lovely wingback shape, they're
much better made and are close to the same price.
Love the shape.  Great for flanking a mantle or as an accent piece.
On clearance 
More great chairs. Check out this seersucker beauty. 
Love the tufting. 
You can't see it in the picture, but the bottom edge has a beautiful oversize 
nailhead detail. 
So gorgeous......yet so prone to dirt....this chair is only for people 
without toddlers in the house. 
Or husbands...... 
or dogs.....
or anyone that spills or is overly clumsy.... 
or pretty much anyone normal. 
Oh well, pretty to look at, right?
Here's a closeup: 
 Sorry for the blur.
Need a new lamp AND a sunburst in your life?
These lamps are fantabulous, huge and luxe-looking.
I adore the sunburst mirror lamp.
This picture doesn't do it justice.  The lampshade is beautiful too and HUGE!
I'm such a sucker for lamps.
Great small tufted sofa for a small space.
Another luxe-looking piece.
LOVE the tufting.
Mirror accents 
The shade has a nailhead detail.
I die! 
Bone-look mosaic mirror.
I'd love to see this as a bathroom vanity mirror.
Lots of great bleached rattan seating options.
Bar and counter height stools 
$149 and $139 
Dining Chair
Sawhorse desk: $169
My imaginary self is outfitting my imaginary office.
How great would this be with that white leather desk chair from
Marshall's I saw a few weeks ago?
Always good mirror options at the pier! 
HUGE lamp.  This would probably go
*crash* in my house. 
Need a garden stool?
They have 'em.
Price tag is a bit hefty when you can find them just about anywhere these days. 
Bright colors don't usually spark my interest,
but I really loved the color combo. 
Mercury glass option.
Large and in charge!
They had some furniture on clearance.
I've always liked these white side tables.
This lamp is great for a hint of glamour, although that
santiny lampshade is a bit too bordello for my taste.
The heftiest price tag in the lamp section. 

Overall, I love the new lamp selections.
Big impact and the prices aren't terribly bad.

Happy Tuesday! 


  1. Pier one always seems to be a hit or a miss with their furniture. But I did just purchase the mirror you snapped a photo of. Both my husband and I love it!


    Just in case you or anyone else wants to take a look at it! Love your blog!
