There are really just a couple of things left to be done in there: hang the curtain, hang the ironing board rack & magnet boards, organize my stuff, find a better flooring solution (although my free carpet square samples from work are nice, no?), swap the light, and eventually make the trim less weird (that's a whole house issue). I also need a rolly chair, so I can be a zippy little crafter. Don suggested I need an Eames Aluminum Management Group Leather Chair, in white leather:
But at $1500 (pre trade discount, but still), it's just way too expensive. So I was doing some window shopping on the internets, and came up with the following alternatives:
At $149, Ikea's Skruvsta is one of the most economical options, and it also comes in white:
Ikea also makes the Patrik Chair, available in a charcoal or red. $199 is still very much in the budget, I think.
Crate and Barrel has a couple of options. The Folio is nice and minimal, but a little too steep at $399:
And the Ripple is a pretty direct Eames knock off, and not bad for $299 (obviously the proportions are way not as nice, but that's why Eames is $1500...)
But, I hate to buy a knock off...
Crate and Barrel's hipper, younger sister CB2 has a great option in Bubble; $199:
Ikea and CB2 seem like the most likely candidates. Looks like I've got some sitting to do. Readers - do any of you have any of these chairs? Thoughts? Complaints? Do share!
