Such a Deal!

Lucky girl...!!!! My client, Rochelle, had a vision of having a pair of neutral sofas in her family room and on Saturday (part of) that vision came to be in the form of a serious deal. While shopping for bedding at a local home store which was "closing" (Bloomingdales Home & Furniture, I believe), she stumbled across this beauty, a floor sample marked $799.... down from the "manufacturer's suggested retail price" of $3700:


Uh huh, yes you read that right!  As she was standing there looking at it and considering whether is was right for her room, a sales associate came by marked the piece down an additional $100 making the price $699. She was in the right place at the right time and this was a deal that was too good to be true, so she snapped it up and now it resides, beautifully, in her family room, have a look...

Before:
After, with Julian:





Pretty amazing, no?  I love the arms, the waterfall skirt and the nubby, textural fabric, not to mention the quality construction. And, Julian could not be more ideal in this setting, making the colors in the rug and pillows come alive and adding a level of sophistication to the other furnishings. This is a perfect foundation piece for any room, so flexible, so classic.
Now, to find the partner....have you seen Julian's mate, lurking on the sales floor of a Bloomingdale's & Furniture store or some other store, preferably in the Chicago area?! Comment or send me an email if you have a lead!

What serious deals or amazing bargains have you scored lately?!!!!

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design? If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Room Rx.
