A chair in Flux

Flux-chair-orangeFlux-chair-orange-folded Flux-folding-chair-white

To most design addicts, the words 'folding chair' are akin to shouting a dirty word in church. Until now.

Meet the Flux Chair, exclusively from YLiving. Flux goes from flat to chair in only ten seconds. Weighing in at only 10.6 pounds, Flux is light enough to carry around and strong enough to support up to 352 pounds. When folded, the Flux built-in handle makes it easy to transport the chair from the patio to the park and everywhere in between

See Flux in several vibrant colors!

Moder Fall Wreath


I despise a naked front door -- it's like going without earrings. Just absurd!

Fall is ripe with bold pops of oranges, reds, and golds -- add subtle touches of blues and greens with this feathered wreath from Pier 1.
