Real Good Chair

The other day I was browsing Urban Outfitters new fall collection of stuff when I noticed that they were selling the Real Good Chair by Blu Dot as on online exclusive. I’ve always had a soft spot for this chair, but I’m totally surprised to see it being sold through UO. The Real Good Chair is slightly remarkable and fun because it ships to you flat, and then you bend it into the chair shape you see above. My friend Max thinks it looks really uncomfortable, but I say we all suffer for fashion.

I also decided to check around the web and see who else sold these and how much they were going for. The first thing that comes up is Design Public who’s selling the chair for $129, and they claim a low price guarantee. Except that UO is selling the chair for $100 with a $5 shipping fee, which is a much better deal. The only downside is that the version on UO’s site only comes in Turquoise, while Design Public also carries black, white, and red.

I just hope that Urban Outfitters keeps up with this trend and offers more fun furniture!

    We ordered one for the Architect firm i work for. Not very sturdy. I would not recommend for people over 150 lbs.

    Cool chair, though I would prefer it in black as it would then look like an F117 stealth fighter!
