    I’m such a sucker for a good arm chair, and I’d absolutely love to have that bright pink one now that my office is painted charcoal grey. The legs are lovely and I’m pretty much smitten with anything tufted. Oh, how I miss Cost Plus now that I’m an East Coaster!

    If anyone in Chicago is looking for that Nina chair, I’m selling one for $150. It is beautiful, but it is tinier than I expected.

    Wow! I’m loving all of this, especially want that cow and cat pillow. I must say your style is super fun, bright, & quirky – and I love it! :)

    I’ll take #6 please! Although depending on my mood, maybe I’d switch for the hot pink;)

    Definitely 3, 4, and 5 together. I’m a sucker for black and white accents on a bold background.

      Oh! I’d go for chair #6, with pillow #2/8. Though that hot pink chair is awfully tempting.

    Loving these looks…and I had no idea Target had such fun furniture online!?!? My favorites are #1 and #5 – and now I’m currently trying to think of an area in my apartment that could use an armchair…

    Kind of falling all over that hot pink chair!! But I think that pairing that chair with my hot pink desk might be a little too much for my husband… tempting, though. Tempting….

    Yes, lets hear it for kitsch! I am totally in love with #6 too bad it isn’t available for shipping since there aren’t any Cost Plus stores around here. And I love the cow pillow. I might have to pick that up next time I am at Ikea.
