A major perk (in my opinion) of working in a furniture showroom = constant redecorating. I’ve been given the privilege of designing Bungalow 5’s NYC showroom vignettes, which are switched up every three months or so. Since the space is over 7000 square ft, this is no small undertaking… but time after time, the look and feel of the showroom is redefined by each new incoming collection.
First and foremost, sorry for the lapse in posts…in the past 7 days, I’ve had the pleasure of going on (what felt like) 239,028,392 job interviews, and was also hit with as a slew of midterm assignments for my design courses. Now that the dust of last week has cleared, I’m happily employed at a drop-dead-gorgeous furniture showroom in chelsea, and I’m technically on spring break….wahoo!!
Coffee tables are a furniture staple that I’ve always bought exclusively from thrift stores. As long as the lines of the piece are attractive, you can easily refurbish a table for a fraction of the price you’d find in retail stores. For instance, I snagged this table for under $20 at Goodwill, and with some sandpaper and a few coats of paint, transformed it into a fresh white centerpiece for our living room.
Decorative throw pillows are quite possibly the quickest, most effective way to change the look of a room. With just a few, you can update a couch from frumpy to festive, or transform a bed into an inviting, cozy space. Only problem? Nice throw pillows often break the bank, so I’ve rounded up my favorite picks—all priced at $40 or (way) less.
As this week winds down, I want nothing more than to put my brain on time-out and lounge on a couch…
