So this weekend, I was actually able to convince my husband to go furniture shopping with me, because he hasn't given me any direction on what he wants, what we need right away, and how much we can spend on each room. So we went to every place we could, Levin's, Ethan Allen, Macy's, Potomac, Arhaus, Restoration Hardware, Room Concepts and even made a 2 hour trip to Canton, OH to go to World Market - which I was EXTREMELY disappointed in their quality, the photos online are very deceiving!
What we both realized is that we love everything that is expensive! LOL no surprise there, but what did surprise me is that my husband is all about shopping at the pricey places because he is more mindful of quality and would rather buy less now and spend more, than buy it all, spend less now and have to buy new stuff in 5 years.
We love the Maxwell sofa at RH and a few dinning sets at Ethan Allen. I'm still going to go out to Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn as well. We also still need to make it out to Sheely's in Ohio, it's not too far and their deliver for only $50 to our place.
We have prioritized the Morning Room as the #1 furniture purchase we need to make before we move in, since we don't currently have a dinning set (we eat on the couch!). We have a living room set that I hate but it's functional. I am also going to see about getting the chair-and-a-half we have reupholstered, it's very comfy and big and I like the lines but hate the fabric and it's just embedded with car fur! I want to do it in a canvas or something with a tighter weave so the fut comes off easier. We will buy the family room set down the road maybe 3 months when we have a better feel for how we want the room to be laid out. I am also having a problem with the morning room set because we both love this table from RH but it seems too fancy to me, and I don't like any of RH's chairs for the morning room, they are all too fancy or just ugly for me and I am afraid to buy the table and not be able to find chairs for it!
My brain is fried over this but here are some pics of what we liked! Also, any suggestions for where to buy quality solid wood tables for the morning room would be much appreciated!
