Frances wrote us to say, "Hey guys, I've been reading your blog everyday for about 2 years and I always find the coolest stuff on here. Sooooo I was hoping you guys could help me out. I just bought this adorable little townhouse with my boyfriend and was looking to furnish it. I love the stuff Horchow/Neiman Marcus, Restoration Hardware, Ethan Allen, Thomasville etc but of course everything is always waaaaayyyyyy out of my price range. Anyways, I'm obsessed with this gorgeous storage bench from Horchow, which is by the way not that bad price wise (which is a miracle in it of itself), but I still can't afford it. I can't find anything similar so far it's just those ugly plastic deck boxes. Hopefully you guys can help me out. Thank you so much! Francis <3"
