Fabulous Finds : My New Suzani Chair

This week's "Fabulous Find", even if I say so myself is something I actually picked up for my home :) Suzani chairs come with outrageous price tags and so I consider this a great buy!! This chair was a pretty good deal. Please bear with me as I share the story of how I ended up buying it.

I consider myself very lucky to have found this chair. I walked into the store and spotted it almost instantly. It had been brought to the front of the store just a few minutes before I walked in. My mom told me to look around the store but I could not make myself move from that spot :) I was trying to justify the expense in my mind. With hubby out of the country, I was having a harder time trying to convince myself. Anyway, I decided to think about it but then better sense prevailed and I put it on hold. It turned out to be the best decision. As soon as I showed interest in it so did a few more :) The store only had one piece and luckily I got it!!! However, like a good good and dutiful wife, I went home and discussed the matter on the phone with Mr MDC :)

Much to my surprise, hubby had a fairly mild reaction to my crush on the chair :) Guess it has something to do with the fact that our anniversary is this month!! To cut a long story short, we picked it up two days later. The chair is my anniversary gift from hubby and my parents!! At least I made it easier for everyone by picking my own gift :)

The chair is now part of my living room. I had to move a few things around to accommodate it but that was part of the fun too :)  I like to think that this was simply meant to be :)

Gorgeous chair and yes, you beat me to it. Its the same one I mentioned to you last month when I visited HG and had my eye on. And yes, even then it was right up in front of the store and I asked the sales lady if they would get any more and she said nope, cos they were all one of a kind! Its a terrific deal for $399 and if it had fit in my car I'd have bought it on the spot! Well, at least now I can sit on it when I come visit you "sigh" !!!!
