My daily quest for One Beautiful Thing (OBT)

Restoration Hard-to-Afford

“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.”
― Oscar Wilde

Restoration Hardware consistently has the most delicious, the most desirable, the most needful things, and each gorgeous item comes complete with a shocking price tag. On the rare occasions when I go in the store (as opposed to fogging up their windows), I wander about, mouth agape, gawking at every single gadget and gizmo like I’ve just arrived in town with the manure money. (No offense to those of you with manure-related income. I hear it’s the big thing these days.)

But I digress. These gorgeous pieces are all part of wonderfully-talented Danish designer Søren Rose’s line of outdoor furniture for Those Overpriced Bastards. Just to illustrate my point, I’ve included not just links to these glorious items, but also their bat-shit crazy prices.

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  1. What, you don’t think an outdoor couch that gets rained on, bird crap on, etc is worth almost $4K? Sheesh. 🙂 I LOVE Restoration Hardware – I even own a few of their (much less expensive) pieces, but they’re inside the house. In a room we use DAILY. Without the opportunity for pigeon poop.

  2. I may rival the craziness of their prices. The only person in our family on whom we have splurged with RH furnishings is too damned young to appreciate it (they sell beautiful nursery digs too and I wanted something that would last until he left home). Oh, and the dog. Her (not quite 16 lb) highness has appropriated this: http://www.rhbabyandchild.com/catalog/product/product.jsp?productId=rhbc_prod381075&categoryId=rhbc_cat377264 – which naturally was also bought for the little person. I want a brain transplant.

  4. I browse their website from time to time, but certainly can’t afford the furniture. One day!

  8. Loved the post and believe me, even if they GAVE the furniture to me, it wouldn’t look the same, seeing as how I don’t live right next to the ocean. Sigh. Besides, Chicago weather sucks, maybe that’s the reason they closed all their stores in this area.
