Atomic Eames 1950's Footstool

It's funny how the ending bids on these footstools can vary so widely. Some days they can sell for over $100, some days, like yesterday, under $20.

So I snagged this one because...

The pattern matches the one I already have. Funny, it looks so white in the photo, but it has a sort of gold color that runs through it, so it does NOT look this white. From now on, I am asking every seller about the colors of items before I bid. I wanted white to match my chairs. But... I still like it.

I don't suppose I will ever find two that match, in a style and color and/or pattern I love, with the same feet, that I can afford! I'd like a matching pair to match the white chairs in the living room, but in the meantime, I'll have to sort of mix and match.

I asked you all a while ago if matching things was important to you, and most said, you put together whatever you had and whatever worked, but silly me, I am compelled to try and match.

Should I give up trying?

Happy Thursday, work is kicking my ass the last couple days, hope everyone is doing great!

Chris continues to get better, thank you all so much for the outpouring of love!
