Just when you thought it was safe for your bank account to recover from all of the Black Friday in July sales this month, brands start teasing us with their fall collections. Anthropologie's leading the charge this season, launching a collaboration with Welsh designer Bethan Gray on a line of nature-inspired, retro glam furniture that's practically guaranteed to make you shift your "dining out" budget to all ramen, all the time. You know, all in the name of finally filling that awkward, empty corner of your living room.
The whole collection fits within a rose pink (ahem, millennial pink?), mint green, charcoal, and brass color palette, all muted enough that they can easily be added into a room without overtaking the space. Or making you want to redo everything.
Feathers — from how they're used in Polynesian cultures to the ones in the Prince of Wales' heraldic badge — inspired most of the line, according to a press release. Though, to be honest, the Feather dining and occasional chairs give me more of a Britney Spears "Lucky" vibe, and I'm here for it. I can't be the only one, right?
Check them out in closer detail below, along with the line's equally bold (though decidedly less Brit-Brit) Strike chairs. Then your only question will be, how soon can they ship it to me?
Nobody puts baby in a corner — unless it's this baby. But don't worry, it'll still be the focal point of the room. With brass legs, that bubbly back, and h velvet in rosewater pink, pale gray and deep marine blue, it's a TKO.
If you like more modern-eclectic looks than retro glam, this is the chair for you. It's every bit as eye-catching, with that bold zigzag pattern, yet all three colors are subdued enough that you can have a whole set without overpowering the rest of your decor.
Sorry, Aunt Margie — the only drama anyone wants in the dining room is the kind these chairs bring. They're totally striking — and comfortable enough that you could sit through an entire Thanksgiving dinner without squirming in your seat ... until your relatives go head-to-head over politics or the proper way to baste a turkey, that is.
