Fringe Benefits ...

How many of you have a Hollister in your local shopping mall? Have no idea what I'm talking about? Then you probably don't have teenage children! Hollister is an Abercrombie brand offering casual clothes and jeans for young adults. It's probably not the first place you'd think to look for design inspiration - but as I've said before, it comes from just about everywhere!

Looking familiar? Sandwiched between stores like Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma, Hollister is always in prime locations and smells of the newest, hottest cologne while blasting the newest, hottest music. The catalog, (no surprise, they are an Abercrombie brand) sells sex over clothes and if you're anything in the high-school clique, you've got something from Hollister in your closet.

It's been a long time since I worried about what brand of jeans I had. A LONG TIME! I'd much rather spend my money on home decor. Speaking of ...


See that green chair? In the entry of just about every single Hollister store sit two chairs, a velvet fringe piped club chair, and a burgundy leather one.


It's no different in both all of the Hollister stores in my area. I snapped this photo of the chair with my iphone:


Beautiful right? Now where in the heck do they find these chairs? Surely, there's a frame they've chosen, along with the fabric and fringe, and when they open a store they plop one in. I searched and searched, but to no avail. 

Any ideas?
