Restoration Hardware Thinks I’m Done

The difference? Restoration Hardware wants $2400 for their settee. That makes mine a bargain, even with the cost of classes and materials.

No Minimalist Here has a great post on the Deconstructed Furniture. The range of reactions in the comments is interesting, too.

The settee above is more my style. I love the crisp fabric, and the contrast between the upholstery on the front and back of the settee.
