I came across this image today via the blog, Sketchy. I love the airy feel of the space and I think that at least part of the feel comes from the use of the Ghost chairs around the table. It's renewed my longing for a Ghost chair of my very own.
Although a real Philip Stark Ghost chair is waaaay out of my budget, I did come across these Victoria Ghost chair knock-offs on Overstock.com. The lack of arms on this chair means that I can slide it right up to my desk when I'm not using it, so I won't end up tripping over it. And whereas a real Ghost Chair costs upwards of $400, a pair of these knock-offs is only $269.99. Quite the bargain!
Of course, I say that like I throw around $270 all the time without blinking an eye, which isn't the case. I make big purchases very slowly and agonize over them for weeks and sometimes months before finally taking the plunge.
But this is Overstock.com, where things often sell out in the blink of an eye and are lost forever. Should I just take the plunge and brown-bag lunches for the next couple of months to soothe my guilty conscience?
