Saturday Night The Girlfriend Not Only Dragged A Mr. To See Some Young Adult Book Turned Movie (Divergent) But To TJ Maxx And Marshalls Too. A Danish Barstool? Yup. The Most Danish Of Danish Barstools! Status: ...At Least In Design.
I just wanted some new socks. I wasn't looking to be surprised by a knock off of a fine danish modern seating unit. And anyway, why'd they only have one? That's just weird.
I know right!? A Hans Wegner Wishbone barstool? At Marshalls? This was kinda weird? I had to
look around for the TV cameras and "Gotcha!" host. Now, I wasn't going to buy it...but well, maybe if it had
been a better made. I've had the real thing and this...this didn't measure up.
But that's what you get from a $130 made in China knock off. You get the style but not the
craftsmanship. These looked like they'd been left out in the rain for a few summers. I wouldn't
recommend wearing a loose knit blouse / shirt or a sweater while sitting in one of these since the
joints on the backrest were iffy at best. Still, it's so pretty. I couldn't help but take a bunch
of pics and show y'all!
