Bargain Find

A few weeks ago, we went out to a furniture warehouse sale for the IBB Design Group. It was the second time we had gone out there for one. We were turned on to them by a friend of ours that works part time for them.

The first time we went, we got there late and almost all of the good stuff was picked over. This time, we got there early and there was a pretty decent selection.

Most of the stuff they carry, I don't care for. It's a little too Haverty's for my taste. But we did find this awesome chair there for a steal. The springs on the bottom were broken (something that costs about $5 to fix), so it was only $99. The worst part was trying to get the thing in the prius and still have room for 3 of us to ride home (My mom was with us).

When I got home and looked at the tag, we realized that it was an even better deal than we thought. It turned out to be the Jasper Fireside Armchair from the Martha Stewart Bernhardt Collection. Brand new this sucker is more than likely 10x what we paid for it.

We're not sure what we are going to do with it yet, but you can never have too many cool shaped chairs in simple neutral fabrics like chocolate color velvet.
