A Taste of the Islands (Mon)

Imagine the quandary.  One digs the industrial aesthetic, but one has limited options.  Then one gets two catalogs back to back.  Exhibit A:

This is West Elm's interpretation.

Exhibit B:
A disconcertingly similar offering from Crate & Barrel

The difference?  Two Benjamins.  As a sidenote, I would love to have the specs chart in B.  Which would you prefer?  I'd take every seating option shown in both pictures, too.

What's a boy to do?

  1. I like both but I think I prefer Crate and Barrels. But that may because it seems to have a more industrial look because of the chairs - which I love. (But whatever one is cheaper is what i would go for - they really are very similar.)
