Having fun at Havertys – and a picture perfect contest.

IMG_1861I’m excited to write this post. Why? Because lately I’ve been having fun furniture shopping for the first time in my life. You see, I’ve never, ever lived in a place that I felt was my “style” before, and that I felt like I could decorate with things that I wanted. Mostly because I like contemporary furniture, and the places I’ve lived haven’t really been conducive to that style. Until now. I’ve been in the loft of my dreams since August. And now I’m in the market for seating. I recently took a trip to Havertys to check out their selection of furniture wonderfulness. You see, I don’t want to spend an arm and a leg, but I want good quality. I’ve done big box retailer furniture before, and this time I’m ready for something that’s going to be a bit more durable and unique.

IMG_1860Upon entry to the store, I was greeted by a lovely man named Larry who was very helpful. But I hardly heard him because I saw this yellow chair. I think I love it.

IMG_1859Then there were these teal/khaki ottomans. Um, I need them. Wouldn’t they look awesome with a gray couch? It just so happens that I have a gray couch.

IMG_1858 I REALLY like leather furniture. My parents had a few leather pieces for many years and it seemed to wear well.

IMG_1855 Oh dear. I love this table and stool. I think I need it for a work table. I don’t have a desk. But wait . . . something caught my eye . . .

IMG_1857. . . it was then that I saw the chairs of my dreams. There were two of these. Modern. On a swivel. Blue. I’m going back this weekend with a truck to get them. I’m serious. These are the best chairs I’ve ever seen in my life. Thank you, thank you Havertys. These are amazing.

IMG_1856 Another piece I loved? This union jack trunk. So much so that I took my picture with it to show you. I think my teeth look nice (good thing you can’t see all my hair). Anyway, the reason I’m showing you this picture is because I’m entering it in Havertys Picture Perfect Contest! What is that, you ask?
