Q: I absolutely love the Grand Leather Bean Bag Chair that Restoration Hardware sells (in Italian Brompton Cocoa, specifically); however, it clocks in at a thousand dollars. A THOUSAND DOLLARS. FOR A BEAN BAG CHAIR. It's gorgeous, but I can't bring myself to drop that kind of cash on a bean bag. So I ask you, Apartment Therapists, have you seen a comparable bean bag chair that is more reasonably priced? I've seen others, but they don't have the lovely dark, distressed look that RH has perfected. Any leads? Thanks! Sent by Courtney
Editor: First of all, my favorite all-caps item in the Restoration Hardware catalogue was the $1,099 white fuzzy throw blanket. ELEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS. FOR A THROW. Second of all, that's a really nice bean bag chair; it's like the world's most beautiful baseball mitt, but for sitting. Third of all, the Italian Brompton Cocoa bean bag chair is currently on sale for $710, so if our readers don't come up with an alternative for you, at least your bean bag chair price won't have a comma in it? Readers, please help Courtney!
