So I finally got a Fatboy. It's aptly named and HUGE. It's actually meant for outdoor lounging, but since it's 16 degrees here in the arctic Catskills we're using it inside until summer returns. (It's the closest thing we'll get to a recliner in this joint.) I bought it at a deep discount from which is like but for modern home stuff instead of designer clothes. As far as I can tell it's about 95% mismatched Dwell Studio bedding separates and 5% cool stuff, but totally worth checking out.

Fatboy Modern bean bags for modern slugs. They weirdly only feature one item at a time on the main page, but once you sign up you can access the "Secret Sale" page with everything on it. Invitation only high end designer clothes sample sale with some home accessories on occasion.

P.S. As I was editing the photo for this post I counted a ridiculous amount of pillows in this one shot. Seven including the Fatboy which is basically a giant pillow. That's disturbing. I need a pillow intervention. In fact, I want to be on Intervention for Pillow Addiction and ushered off to Promises by concerned friends and family. If I'm lucky, I'll be roommates with my all time fave Intervention star, Alison the Duster Huffer:

    Ooooo..... that Fatboy is really cool. It looks perfect in your super stylie home. I totally get the pillow collecting thing--- My guy has a pillow obsession as well and I've been telling him for years he needs help. We even have that same pillow on the chair in the background. :)
    Love seeing photos of your place.

    This is fabulous. It would be excellent beside my pool!

    It's super comfy and molds to the shape of your body. I'd love to put mine next to my pool, oh, wait, I don't have one. And if I did it would be frozen. I need a winter home asap.

    Hi Jill, I've had those posters since my angsty teen years. I dug them up out of my piles of old crap in my parents' basement and had them framed. I bet you could find them on ebay.

    Alison wouldn't need to do Duster if she had a Fatboy to lounge on.

    The campfire pillow is by Gama-Go, but I don't think they make it anymore.
