In the form of a gift card to Pottery Barn. Which of course means that I have a gift card to Pottery Barn OR Pottery Barn Kids OR Williams-Sonoma OR West Elm. Happy dance. The only real issue is that I don't want to "waste" the gifted monies on small things that I won't specifically remember, so I'm looking to maybe spend a little and get a lot for it. The West Elm Essex Printed Bench that I have loved forever is currently on final sale for $249.99. Do I go for it?
I love the color, the print, and I especially love the idea of having an upholstered bench in my home-- but is it too much? I also found some big flat rug options at Williams-Sonoma Home for ssome very reasonable prices. This gray and ivory one is supposed to be coral but looks more abstract to me:
But this blue and white guy has been catching my eye as well:
The place where we really need a rug is under our dining room table, so flat weave seems like a reasonable option and fairly easy to sweep as well. What would you do-- make a move or keep on looking?
P.S.- What I really wish they had for purchase is a Moroccan pouf. I need a few of these in my life:
