There have been a lot of openings and closings in my Upper East Side neighborhood. A three story Banana Republic closed last winter and finally something filled the spot: Pier 1 Imports! I’d never been to a Pier 1 before… no, I haven’t been living in some dark hole, just Manhattan which until recently didn’t offer these big box stores in my hood. Anyway, I was excited to visit and use my editing skills to pick out the best of the lot.
This is a great Director’s Chair for $39.99 (canvas sold separately for $9.99)
I kind of love this Indian pouf in a neutral kids room too…it could be used as an ottoman or extra seating. It is super soft and hand made from Bengali saris ($149)
PS. For those of you with little girls like me, there is a fantastic “grab bag” type check out area that is filled with cheap fixes any young girl would go crazy for…bedazzled jewelry boxes, jewelry and other fun knick knacks.
