Inspiration of the Week: Up!

I finally watched Pixar’s Up this past weekend and, of course, fell in love with it.

Carl and Ellie are the cutest couple ever and they have great chairs.  I love how they get them when they set up their house together as newly-weds and they have them until the end.

We don’t have our “his & hers” chairs just yet but I’m sure we will eventually.  It looks like there are some candidates out there:
