I spent some time recently cruising the Room and Board site and came across a chair that I cannot stop thinking about: the Hans Wegner Wishbone chair. It's the dining chair of my dreams. Bent wood. A natural woven rope seat. Both sophisticated and casual. But the $799 price tag? Oh no.
Enter Overstock.com and their "Wood Chair with Temp Seat."At $189 per chair it still ain't cheap, but it's cheaper. Has anyone seen chairs in this style at thrift stores or garage sales for much less? Now that I know what to look for, I'll keep my eye out. And one day, a dining room like the one below will be mine.
