Here are a few photos that have inspired my desire for bentwood chairs.
Since the Pottery Barn chairs (above) are no longer available (I called and had them check their other stores and they only had one left somewhere in Colorado), I've started to do the following:
1. I'm trying to check Down East Home once a week, since they carry Pottery Barn furniture at about 1/2 the price, and sometimes they have discontinued merch. (This is probably a hopeless case since they rarely have a full set).
2. I set up e-bay searches to e-mail me every time something new is posted with my keywords.
3. I check KSL classifieds and Craigs list daily.
4. I'm saving my pennies so I can afford them when the right chairs come along!
Is that serious or what? I think it could be fun to hit a few antique stores around here to see if I could collect a mismatched set that would look okay together. I kind of like that look. It would take me a good solid day to get that done though... and a good shopping partner. Anyone interested?
