catch-all chair





so, i have this chair in my room. it was initially put in there to fill some empty floor space that i had, but now it serves as the place where i put everything that doesn't have its own home. enter: the catch-all chair.

magazines, umbrellas, scarves, bags. you name it, it's probably sat on that catch-all chair at one time or another. and it's probably still sitting there. although i tend to not like clutter, i can deal with pretty clutter. which is what i consider this chair to be a home for. pretty clutter.

(scarf from shop sosie, umbrella from j.crew, sunglasses from target)

  3. This is definitely considered 'pretty clutter'. I'll take pretty clutter anyday! Oh, and I'll take that bag please! :)

  4. Your catch-all chair doesn't look anything like mine! I would love to have a catch-all with pretty clutter.

  6. Oh, yes. The catch-all chair. I've got one, too. Although admittedly, it's a lot less pretty (and organized) as yours. Scarves that I'm too lazy to hang up at the end of the day, folded clothes, pj's...it's all there. My husband once asked me if we removed the chair, would stuff stop accumulating in the corner? Doubtful.

  7. ummm your catch all chair is WAY neater than mine.
    I have a feeling most of your stuff is neater than mine.
    Well that would be the case since you are way neater (as in cool) than me :)

  10. Your catch all chair looks great... mine looks like a laundry basket threw up all over it. Sad, sad chair in my room! I love that scarf, please share where you found it! :)

  12. My desk chair is totally my "catch all" chair- except you manage to make yours look so neat and pretty still!

  13. I love this look! So functional but it looks very polished. Unfortunately, my "catch-all" has become a closet. We refer to it as "the dungeon"!

    By the way, I love that scarf!

  14. I need a chair or something to hang my bags on when I go home. Right now they sit on the floor and I hate how messy that looks! Love the scarf!

  17. Chairs always become catch-all chairs in my bedroom. I always try to break the habit but it never works. Maybe if my catch-all chair looked as cute as yours it wouldn't bother me as much ;)

  18. I have a catch all counter in my kitchen...and I might also have a catch all chaise in my bedroom. Hmm, does this reflect my cleanliness?

    PS- That BAG- where from????

  22. Our kitchen table is right near the front door and ends up being the place where things just end up!

  23. First, I just want to let you know that I really love your blog.

    And second, and this is a little off topic of a pretty clutter chair, but I saw this shirt on Kintage.com and thought of you immediately. I think it is super cute.

    Here is the link:

  26. For a catch-all-chair it sure does look stylish! :) My "messy" places do not look this trendy.

  27. Wow, it looks so nice and neat! Every time I designate a spot as a "catch-all" spot, it turns into a junk pile. I'm definitely aiming to make it look more like yours.

  28. That definitely is pretty clutter. We have a catch all basket on the bar but it's filled with clutter, not pretty clutter :(

  29. My "catch all chair" is the desk and it is not pretty! I try and keep it organized but my husband throws all if his stuff on it too! Lol
