Pink Arm Chair $75 (i have the strongest urge to rescue this sad girl...she need some serious tlc. i might not even re-upholster her and just keep her in my bedroom all raggedy like the velveteen rabbit...she'll be my love, a connection to a past life. i want to know her history, how many books were read on her or movies watched. you know, i think that is why i love second hand pieces...they have a story to tell and i love that.)

Deep Orange Ikea Desk $150 (awesome color and fabulous for a sofa table, console or desk...would look fabulous against grey or even blue walls)

Here's an inspirational image for the desk/console above, it's taken from House and Garden's Guide to Interior Design...

Black Wingback Chair $175 (it's upholstered in black vinyl, not my favorite, but great for kids because very easy to clean)

Below is an image by Sixx Design, a hip design company, and the chairs in the photo are upholstered in vinyl, something they do a lot, especially since they have 7 kids, so if you get the chair above you can say you were inspired by Sixx Design...

2 Black Lacquer Chairs $400/pair (so chic, maybe not the most comfortable)

These chairs would look hot in a room painted this color...
