Furniture . Love

The fall catalogue from Anthropologie arrived this week, so of course I had to meander through the site, looking for some of those pretty little things.

What I discovered was that, even in these more difficult financial times, things at Anthropologie only seem to be increasing in price. Some of their winter coats now cost upwards of $500!! And their furniture...well, it's pretty enough that I'd like to have some in every room of my house...




...but for the price of just one sofa, I could easily cut off a big chunk of our mortgage! I can see saving and then splurging on something like a $1500 sofa, but the $6,000 price tag that hangs off of some of Anthro's pieces is just a smidge too much.

sad to say at those prices, the anthro catalog is just a "look book"... but what looks they are!!

Anthro's prices are slaying me...but they are so damn fabulous!

I agree. . .who pays that for furniture? It is fun browse through the catalog for inspiration!

Hmmm...I don't feel like their prices are increasing all that much. There have always been a few "whoa wtf" prices on things like dresses, etc, and their furniture has always been extremely high. I do think that the prices haven't DROPPED at all, though, which is unfortunate.

So I shall continue to stalk their sale rooms....

Oh, I would just explode into confetti if I had the funds to fill my house and wardrobe with anthropologie items! Once, I was browsing their clearance section in their shop, and I got the most gorgeous silk dress for $15!! I felt tingly all over. However, the rest of their items were on clearance for $80-$300...
