My long standing obsession with the Peacock Wicker Chair

Welcome to the post I'm dedicating to my long standing obsession with the peacock wicker chair. Also called a "fan back" wicker chair. These chairs are gorgeous, woven, sculptural pieces of heaven. I have bought and sold a ridiculous number of them and I've bought, and held on to, one more.

The ones I've bought in the past have been a bit faded, or had some structural issues. The most recent one, that I actually bought a few months ago, has been the cheapest one. And it's in fantastic condition. No odd bends, no loose wicker- and it came with the cushion. Hallelujah!

So in honor of sharing my woven chair goodness, I thought it would be fitting to curate a favorites of things that are chairs and/or woven. While it might now make the internet explode, there will be lots of heart eyes!

Have you scored anything good recently? You have to know by now that we want to see!

Here’s The Rules!

  • We want you to participate! Hit up your local thrift stores, craigslist, yard sales, estate sales, side of the road, anything! Thrifty doesn’t necessarily mean from a thrift store. We want to see your good deals, wacky finds and treasures.

  • Don’t feel like you need to save those finds for Thursdays! Yes, features are shared on our blogs and Instagram on Thursdays, but we’re all checking in on (and using!) the hashtag all week long. So, when you see/find it, feel free to share it!

  • Each week, Trisha from Black and White Obsession, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Brynne from The Gathered Home, and Myself (A Designer At Home) will pick a favorite thrift score or two to feature! So please note that by linking up with #thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.

  • Please remember that we can only share love for photos shared on public accounts. If your profile is private, we can’t see your finds.

As is always the case, I would be ecstatic to get my own hands on any and all of these scores and use them in my home. Visit the features and give them a kudos for a thrift well done ?

Before you run off for the day, don’t forget to visit your other hosts for this fab hashtag party:
