Carpe Diem: Biggest Decor Splurge

Carpe Diem: Biggest Decor Splurge

A sales lady at DWR said to us while we were drooling over this Saarinen Womb Chair, "We have a customer who comes in once a week and just sits in this chair...he's always wanted one, and it's been thirty years! I just tell him to buy the damn thing. After all, you only live once!"

And she cackled her way back to her desk after we politely informed her that we were not about to drop 3500 crisp bills on the chair. (That $3500 could very well be rent, the car payment, and the utility bill for all of October. Or? 3500 McNasty Big n' Tasties.) We're not sure WHEN exactly we'll feel comfortable spending that amount of money on anything that doesn't transport us or house us, but we're pretty sure it might involve a winning lottery ticket or perhaps a wealthy long-lost relative...
