Way to sex it up, Crate & Barrel!

The Carly chair, $899.

Well, I'll be. Looks like Crate & Barrel is trying to shake off its menopausal lesbian librarian look. (No offense to dusty ovaries, ladies who love ladies, or bookworms.)

Lookee at all of the choices!

You do have a wry, dry delicious way with words! And the chair aint half bad, either.

I'm not sure if I like these any more than their other stuff. Except for the Lounge sectional. I LOVE the Lounge sectional

"menopausal lesbian librarian look" - another phrase to add to my favorites of yours.

David said...

Do they do COM? I like the Dove frame a lot, say with black mohair velvet.

You've gotta stop this. I nearly choked on my own tongue, laughing so hard was I...

I like the chair. But, I love your snarkish ways with phrase.

Mmmmmm, I don't think a Lesbian or a Librarian would like them .

Jessica - I'm with ya, Sister. I have the Lounge sofa bookmarked for our family room next year. In the light gray velvet.

David - I have no idea of C&B does COM. I should, but I don't.

Dear Raina,
as a non-english-mother-tongue you keep me chasing up phrases and words especially regarding a certain direction - it is always exciting to see if I am going to learn new hilarious expressions - sometimes though I am not quite sure whether these are your own creations...???

Jessica @ The Elegant in the Room said...

Oooh, lucky you planning for a Lounge! I wanted it for my last apartment, but it was just a tad bit too deep for the space... of course, the depth is what makes it amazingly comfortable. I've got it bookmarked for the future too. And thanks a million for being my 14th follower, Raina!

Loving those sinuous lines. Great chair for a great price - like the one you featured best - a classic combo!

C&B is my favorite of all the retail chains...this chair is just another reason why!

Now about that news...dying to hear!?

These dusty ovaries are feeling a twinges and trembles. I love that chair!

CB does do C.O.M., or at least did several years ago.

It probably depends on which vendor is supplying the product you are interested in. There are a number of them. And the quality can vary.
