It's a Big Mesh Egg. No, It's a Chair.

Confession:  I have spent far too much time this morning trying to justify purchasing one of these chairs.

It would provide serenity in the garden.  
Wait.  I don't have a garden.
But it matches Blanket!
It would be perfect hanging in the stone courtyard.
Wait.  I don't have a stone courtyard.
It would be so inviting below my treehouse
Wait.  I don't have a treehouse.  Or a tree.
Awesome!  We'll hang it down where we dock the boat.
Okay now I'm just delusional.

Reality:  Apparently I need to move in order to fit one of these chairs into my life.
What IS it with Anthropologie and their totally tempting treasures? (alliteration!)

Cutest thing ever. It'll look great wherever you put it. It's not expensive compared to the average chair, you will, however, have to refer to it as "The Pod" just because you can.

Love Anthro! Their home selection is amazing!

Nikki said...

Do you have rafters in your house?

Nikki - no I don't, but I'm about to go pilfer through the trash cans to see if there are any pieces of wood I can nail to the ceiling. Great idea! hehe

Haha, I'd like to have a place for a huge mesh egg chair as well. it looks like it would just be so fun to lounge in.

I think you should get two hang them in the living room in place of regular arm chairs. Talk about cozy!

Tara @ Haute Lunch said...

What a fun chair! Anthropologie really does make some adorable things! Hope you can find a place for one of these in the future!

kimbirdy said...

alliteration is absolutely addicting! :) man, those chairs are so perfectly you. it's the like the universe is either being really really generous to you or just being a bitch. either way, they sure are fun to look at! dream, dream, dream...

Marcie said...

I am DYING for one of these, Carrie. Aren't they great! Hope you are well. I am finally out of my pasta coma and am commenting again!

Is it wrong that every time I see a basket chair, I immediately think of you? Or just kind of creepy?

this free bird said...

AHAHAHAHAHA Marcie!! I am loving your Italy pictures. Made sure to tell the Chef all about them--hint, hint. hehe

Kimbirdy...Carrie needs a raise girl :)

LPC - not creepy at all. perhaps a sign? xo

Claire Kiefer said...

The chair is incredible, seriously. I've seen some like that before but never quite as beautiful/colorful. I can't believe I'm gonna click on the link. It's a terrible idea.

Tsuki aka LittleGrayFox said...

If I had a cool, shady tree to hang it from, I would totally buy it! too cute!

Brianna said...

Ha, I understand why you're trying to talk yourself into it...it's awesome :)

I'm trying to talk myself into how useful this bench would be...since I have a whole room to myself in my parents house hahahaha.

These chairs are awesome and oddly adorable! Man, I wish I had a house to keep one of these in. :P

drollgirl said...

ha! my cousin has a chair that is kind of like this. she lives on an island in washington (state). the one time i visited her i sat in that chair for HOURS. i just loved it. not to make you feel bad or anything, but it was RAD. lol

saltandpine said...

Ooooh, I've been lusting for this chair since last summer! It is gorgeous... Maybe I'll talk myself into getting it someday & you can come visit it. ;)

Christina said...

One day, I will buy one of these amazing chairs...the day I have a big oak tree to hang it on!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

I was totally thinking about how perfectly blanket would fit in with the chair!

Katie said...

If I didn't have the world's tiniest patio I'd be figuring out how to convince Jared we needed one. Now I'm delusional...

Dancing Branflake said...

Do it! And the outfit posts with you in it.

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

The is the most perfect little cocoon to snuggle in! Perhaps you should just throw your couch at your neighbors and hang this baby in the middle of the room?

Suzy said...

Not only is the chair fantastic, but since I do not have a 'blanket' I want the one in that last photo on the dock! Where is that FROM????? And, of course, the chair to go with it!!

Fashion Meets Food said...

oh my word how cool!!! Seriously i need that lol.

My Heart Blogged said...

That chair is awesome. Maybe a move is necessary. But, you said you have a dishwasher now so you would have to choose between chair or dishwasher and dishwasher wins every time.

Josie said...

Carrie. You never fail to make me giggle. I say get one, hang it off the side of the deck, and call it a day.

Oh, My Darling said...

I would love this even more if it was lined with soft cushions!

heather said...

I have always always wanted one of these! i can't believe how expensive they are here tho... gotta get em in the third world countries while you can! wanna go to india with me? we could totally stock up on cloth awesomeness and chair swings like this!

Ashleigh said...

Gosh how fun! I shop the same way in my mind, realizing all the great things I could do with something if I just had the right something else to go with it!
