Shopping at All

Today I spent most of the time looking at some really cool things on All Modern.

I have been looking at these chairs for a few weeks now and I finally just ordered them.

Emeco 111 Navy Chair in Grass Green-each chair is made from 111 Plastic Coca Cola Bottles

Emeco 111 Navy Chair in Charcoal

I am supposed to receive a swatch of the colors this week but I just went with it. I am painting my kitchen a lime green color, the one wall next to it a dark gray then the rest of the living room and upstairs and downstairs a lighter gray color. I ordered 2 Green Chairs and 2 Charcoal Grey chairs. Even though the green chairs look lime green online, they are a little darker I have read and also talked to a few sales people on the phone. The one Charcoal Grey that I was able to order was a return and I called them and they told me there was nothing in the description about damage. They had it marked down from $260 to $208 and I recieved 10% off my entire order and also free shipping so it was a better deal then Design Within Reach who was having a 15% off 4 chairs but you had to pay shipping. I love that these are made of 111 Plastic Coca Cola Bottles. The weight limit is 300 lbs so I know they are sturdy. I have been researching them and I knew this is the chair I wanted. I can't wait to see them. I might even order the light grey ones for when we have company. I am still waiting to find out when my farm table is going to be delivered or when we are going to meet the guy to pick it up, I can't wait! 

Some other good deals I got today were these Kikkerland Doormats, now these are anywhere from $22-30 on other sites and they are $6.99-$8.26 on All Modern which didn't make sense because they aren't showing a sale, then I look at the measurements and it says 9"X1.25", that can not be right LOL that would be one tiny door mat! The measurements with the same model number on other websites is the normal size of a door mat so I feel confident that I am getting a human size door mat and not a mini one lol. I bought 2 of each one. Deals like that make me want to buy tons of them and give them away for gifts!


  1. Hi Amber,

    Glad to know you found my post useful! Yes, the chairs are scratch-resistant and definitely more durable than most chairs. I think you're going to love the chairs! Please upload pictures on your blog when they arrive! :) I love the rugs that you bought, especially the one with the owl print. It's too cute!

  2. Thank you so much! I will upload pictures once I get the chairs and my kitchen painted. I love your blog, I look forward to reading more :)
