Target Furniture Find

Lately, I've found Pinterest to be an amazing source of inspiration for decor steals and deals.  I found our Martha Stewart starburst mirror via my friend Amanda's (Amanda Carol at Home) Pinterest board, and then, my friend Stephanie (Cre8tive Designs, Inc.) pinned this settee from Target, which I promptly repinned to my "Yes, Please" board.

I'd been keeping my eye our for a bench or settee for our entryway, and at $249 (on sale), I couldn't beat the price for this Target piece.  I previously had my heart set on a settee from Anthropologie, but I was not prepared to pay $1,000 for it.

So, the Target settee won out.  I had it in our entryway, then moved it to the area under our stairs for now.  I could also envision it at our breakfast table, at the end of our bed, or in our sitting room (it's so versatile I reasoned with my husband).  It photographed more grey, but the Target picture is a better representation of it's true color- has more slate blue in it.

Then I added a lumbar pillow I found at Target over the weekend. 

The nailhead trim is a nice detail.  The settee itself is firm and will provide a couple extra places to sit at James' upcoming second birthday party.  

I'm always somewhat hesitant to buy furniture over the internet, but so far, my bed (from Overstock) and this settee, I'm really happy with.
