    Rope Lace Tiara Chairs

    I noticed this fantastic Rope Lace Tiara Chair at Urban Outfitters yesterday only to find it had already sold out. Luckily, Wayfair.com has not only this piece, but every piece in the Rope Lace Tiara Line. You can get the above chair for $450 ($50 less than the UO price). Sure, some of this stuff is a little over-the-top, but I think that’s kind of the point. I especially love the two intricate chairs below ($470-$440).

    Shenadoah Wall Shelf

    I love the look of this shelf from Blake Avenue. It’s made from reclaimed Douglas Fir and industrial iron. I think if you’re handy with a blowtorch, this would be fairly simple to imitate. If, like me, you are worried about burning your eyebrows off you can get one  here for $395.

    Somebody Make Me One of These

    Yesterday I ordered way more toilet paper online than I have room to store in my apartment, because savings. Today I run across this Cloud Toilet Paper holder by Bertrand Jayr and Lyon Bétonon. I would love to have one of these to free up some cabinet space. Alas, they don’t sell these on Amazon. Via Awesome Products.

    A New Convertible

    It seems like there are never enough options when it comes to smaller-scale sleeper furniture. But today I stumbled across a new one, the Fresh Futon Figo. It lays flat to convert into a twin bed. $558.63 at Wayfair.com.

    The Accordion Basket is Back

    I saw these accordion baskets last year at Anthropologie. Of course, by the time I decided that I, too, might want to store picturesque rolls of twine on the wall, they were complete sold out. But they’re back! $36-$58 at you-know-where.
