They're Finally Here!

Indulge me if you will and I'll release a less self serving post tomorrow.
I promise!

Remember those Elkin's chairs I was obsessing about here? And then, struck in a moment of my own genius, I came up with the idea of having a few made as barstools for my kitchen counter possibly covering them in pen shell to simulate the horn covered chairs I so coveted?

Well, I ended up taking that idea further and they finally arrived last night. I'm ecstatic!

Aren't they gorgeous?

They came out exactly as I had imagined. Thank you Gerly and Daniel for all your efforts and to everyone else at Skyshine Designs.

And a last note for those of you who may be concerned, tiger pen shells, which are indigenous to the Philippine waters, are not endangered species . This was something I verified before ordering them.

What do you think?


  1. It's amazing when what you envisioned is EXACTLY what is delivered! I've had my share of disappointments and I get depressed for weeks. They're gorgeous, I'm so thrilled for you!

  2. Very, very gorgeous chairs! :)

  3. They look lovely Ali! The kitchen looks even lovelier now. It was already fab to begin with :) - RINA

  4. OMG - they are perfect in your kitchen!

  5. Absolutely gorgeous Alicia! eyelaveeet!

  6. Wow. Coolest thing that I have seen in awhile. Tell me more. Who made them and will they ship to the US??? Not kidding!

  7. Hi Jen! I will ask them if they can ship to the US. They are exporters so that should not be a problem.
