Thursday's Cheap and Chic

Every so often we like to do a quick run through of our favorite websites for cheap and chic finds!  We would probably never advocate furnishing an entire room from these stores, but they can be great resources for finding an inexpensive piece here or there!

From Pier 1

Since black and gold has been on our minds....  Would you ever guess this is from Pier 1?  It could be a fab bedside table, or it would even work in a living room.  And we always love storage!

Whitley Chest, on sale for $200

We love the lines of this chair- a modern take on the traditional wing chair.  And you can't beat the price (go ahead and get a pair!).
Ikat Wing Chair, on sale for $290

I am in love with the base of this table.  It's alot like a marble-topped coffee table that my grandmother has from the 1970's from Mecklenburg Furniture that I absolutely love.  We'd like to see the top of this table in person, but the base is fantastic.

This seagrass headboard is exactly like ones we've seen at pricier shops.  Yes, it would be cute in a beach house, but it could also add an air of informality to an otherwise formal bedroom.

We were thrilled to see Pier 1's take on the $2100 Wisteria Peacock mirror on Caitlin Creer's blog earlier this week. 


Tufting and bright flowers, two things we love!  This little chair is just adorable, although we would probably swap out the legs for something like these.  Although we haven't tried swapping out chair legs, we think it looks like an easy way to make an inexpensive chair look so much nicer!  How hard could it be to unscrew these fugly brown legs and add some turned legs with casters?!

We'd love to see this dining room table painted a fun color!  The shape of it is just fab- imagine it painted and then paired with lucite chairs.  It even has a removable drop leaf so you can expand it for more people.  Pier 1 gets fancy!

From my new favorite store World Market...

I will admit I'd never spent much time at World Market.  I had walked in before and walked out 5 minutes later, a little skeeved by the fact that they sell everything from bath salts to barstools to beaujolais.  But World Market is a place where it pays to stick it out!  Stay a little longer, look past the chunky teak end tables, and you will find a treasure!  Also worth noting- sign up for their rewards program!  You will instantly get a $10 off $30 coupon, as well as a 10% off coupon.
Like this glossy red bench!  Just what every back porch needs!

Isn't this chevron throw just beautiful?  It will have to tide us over until we can afford the one with the big H on it...


World Market does suzani like no other!  Great way to brighten up a room!

World Market also has some fun fashion accessories, like bangles, clutches, and scarves.  These clutches with wood clasps would be so cute for spring!

And, of course, last but not least, the zebra ottoman...  Zebra plus nailhead plus a clearance price?  We'll take two!  Chic Coles posted about them too!  I just bought a pair for my downstairs den.  More on that to come...
Zebra Kilim Stool, originally $118 but on clearance for $59 online and even cheaper in-store

From Pearl River Mart...

Since MoS Washington whet our appetites with her fab pictures of the b&m Pearl River Mart, for those of us who haven't had a chance to check it out in person, they are online as well!

This pair of turquoise foo dogs is fantastic and would look great in an entryway. 
Turquoise Foo Dogs (also come in Persimmon), $39

Doesn't this altar table make a fantastic tv stand?  And you can't beat the price!

I have a weakness for tea sets, and this gorgeous raspberry colored one is no exception!

Love the post! Inexpensive pieces mixed with better quality items is always the way to go. I also think the cheap stuff is great for the guest room because it doesn't usually get as much use as other rooms.

Great post! I love the altar table.

That Pier 1 chest is pretty great. They needed a hit!

Thanks so much for the mention. Melissa is so excited about those stools. I was so proud of her purchase. She did a great job. Wow that is amazing how Peir 1 has stepped the design of their products. Pearl River Mart is also a great find.

What great finds! So sad that I don't live near a World Market, but thanks to the web I can snag that amazing throw. It's so chic!

Lucky lady that I am I live about 30 mins for Pearl River so I can get my fix on a regular basis.

Thanks for sharing all these finds!

Great finds. I'm so stoked to see the peacock mirror done affordably! Is it on the same scale as the original?
