I want a purple ostrich

In fact, I want SIX purple ostriches — just like these ones:

lavender ostrich chairs

Designer Samantha Pynn featured these chairs in the July 2009 issue of Style At Home. She bought the chairs from Craigslist and then had them painted and re-upholstered in a this super-cool lavender faux ostrich leather fabric.

I forgot about them till a couple of weeks ago when Samantha showed them during a segment on Cityline. And now that I’ve pretty much settled on a colour scheme for the living room, I want purple ostrich chairs too!! So now be vewy, vewy quiet, because today we’re hunting ostwitches…

Hey, don’t worry, it’s faux ostrich leather!! Besides, real ostriches don’t come in purple :-)

That looks really pretty! And here I am going to be painting white chairs brown! I guess we should be grateful ostrich's don't come in purple.

Those chairs are fabulous! And I think that ostrich is wondering where Samantha found his purple cousin?!
