one of my best kept secrets…revealed!

Mean Mugging in the Uglywhere Chair
It’s one of my best kept secrets. You’d never think it wasn’t the real thing, because it is the real thing. But would you believe I didn’t pay even close to full price for it?

I spent weeks coveting the Pottery Barn Kids My First Anywhere Chair for Madeline. The chair is adorable- the perfect size seat for her to read her books in, drink her milk in, take a time out in. Not so adorable and perfect? The $109 price tag for a chair made out of foam inserts. Womp womp…

I scoured in the internet looking for a deal, a coupon code…something! Retail Me Not let me down. eBay and Craigslist let me down. It seemed there was no deal to be found. If I wanted this specific chair for Maddie, it appeared I would have to bite the bullet.

But then I stumbled upon Ugly Sofa. Ugly Sofa started out by offering slipcovers from Brand X (aka Pottery Barn) at deep discounts. They have since expanded their offering to include a large, albeit random, assortment of items from Brand X- kids chairs, lunch boxes, backpacks, Christmas stockings, curtains and more- all at huge price-cuts.

At first I was skeptical. Would it really be a PBK product, with their undeniable quality? Then I saw the price tag. The Mini Uglywhere Chair (aka My First Anywhere Chair) was $35 plus shipping. A $75 savings! WHAT!?! It was a risk I was willing to take. Even if it wasn’t PBK, I had a feeling it would be at least on par with, if not nicer than, the Target version of these chairs.

The chair arrived quickly, and the slipcover- obviously Pottery Barn (complete with PBK tag)- and foam inserts were flawless. Ugly Sofa is the real deal and my best kept secret for discounts on the internet. Tell only your closest friends!

The easily washable, extra cozy Uglywhere Chair (seen here in Ivory Sherpa) has been Maddie’s go-to thinking spot from the moment it came out of the box.
