speaking of chairs...

well look. 
i havent been to homegoods in a while, but when i popped in a few weekends ago. i spotted these two balloon chairs.

i have yet to see any of these in an actual thrift store, but they have made a huge resurgence in the last few years, primarily due to blogs and interior design magazines.

what do you think?
are they worth buying or have they become too trendy?
