San Diego homeowners used to travel south of the border to order highend but affordable custom designed doors, windows, tables and tile work and celebrate afterward with a Dos Equis beer and plate of fish tacos.
The companies are not strangers to San Diego and akin American markets.
Fausto Polanco Reyes, a wellknown furniture designer, has sold pieces in ‘multimillion dollar’ homes throughout Southern California. Leonel Luna Pérez of SOMO Furniture, a contemporary ‘family owned’ minimalist design maker in business for 47 years, said his works can be found at Jolt’n Joe’s in the Gaslamp Quarter, Achiote restaurant in Chula Vista and identical specialty restaurants, hotels and commercial settings. I think you miss the honesty, history and value that comes from the hand made furniture that Marian usually uses in her décor and ‘blogAshley’ Furniture offers Chinese goods, and nothing more.
Furniture doesn’t have any intrinsic value except for the moment.
It will never be passed down, and it will never have a history worth admiring.
So here’s the question. Maybe it’s crucial to branch out to include readers who could never find the kinds of furniture that Marion loves and is so good at transforming, bUTa’ blog is a fragile thing and people stop for quite a while, and move ontraffic is fluid I don’t think a blog could remain in existence if it only kept the original subscribers? Essentially, everyone can go to Ashley, and stuff and find that sectional, that TV cabinet, and stuff and can enjoy seeing how Marian incorporates it into her home gether with her treasures? Congratulations on your new furniture.
I am a lover of old, re purposed items.
I remember the joy of getting that first storebought couch, table or chair.
I am happy for you. Thing is, it boils down to the fact that so it is what actually is working for your family now. I know that the fact that you got it free, all the merrier! While calming backdrop for living, I have to say -whenever I look at your home I see identical thing that keeps me coming back -a peaceful. Comfort is what I crave in my home, and that sofa, TV console, and coffee table could not look more Mustard Seed to me. I love your blog for the photography and for the inspiration. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… My living room finally looks the way I look for it to because of things I have gleaned from your blog.
Thanks for that and for keeping your blog going -have a wonderful weekend.
I also reckon that changing the furnishings to suit a wider audience will plenty of buyers don’t see past a particular style of decorating, and this new setup will actually, you could sell the furnishings with the home! You can so create your forever home in your personal style which will, hopefully, stifle the dissension from your hard core followers. Actually, the reason yours is a single one I follow is your voice, while mostly there’re a slew of other bloggers who have great style. I feel like I’m visiting with a friend when I read your posts. Frankly, most other bloggers come across as a bit stilted, pretentious and trying I knew there were some stylish sectionals out there. Even the word evoked the idea ofsome monstrosity with cupholders and mauve upholstery that looked like it was ripped out of a Winnebago.
Though, we lost the side table that was between the two sofas, we needed a hard surface to put drinks and such, with the addition of the sectional. Then the coffee table provides a place for that and to prop up our feet, that we all like to do. We also made a few additions to Calvin’s room to make it look more masculine and boyish. Then, as I started working on his room, the shape and style of the bed were just I was originally thinking I should keep the almost white iron bed. Consequently, I like comfy sofas with deep seat cushions that you can sink into. Nonetheless, you don’t feel like you’re could be eaten by the seat cushions, it does have a nice spring to it as well, with that said, this one definitely fits that bill.
Did you know that a few days ago, To be honest I shared the new arrangement in our family room as well as the progress on Calvin’s room. I said I will give the details on the new pieces of furniture and this post is making good on that promise! I admit, furniture stores have never been my thing. Anyway, give me a flea market, antique store, thrift shop or yard sale! That’swhere a lot of my pieces are found and I’m pretty proud of my resourcefulness and ability to ‘makedo’. With all that said… So there’re bit of aNow, a bit of aI sold the French provincial buffet we’ve been using as our TV stand for a few years at Lucketts, if you remember. Known I didn’t have a replacement lined up for it, I was ready to let it go. There is more information about it here. For a few months, we’ve been using an antique dresser that didn’t fit the space well. Notice that I am not disappointed by YOU but by some amount of your readers. There will always be those who are threatened by friends who dare to try new things. Now pay attention please. Sadly And so it’s just they way humans can be BUT look, there’re so very a lot more who love admire that you was couragous enough to go where Marian has not dared to go.-). I admire your unending hard work, creative spirit and honesty. I say press on Marian! Now please pay attention. Shan’t but at least you had the courage to TRY! In scripture we are ld to be encouragers.
Listen to those and just smile and nod to other who judge and try to hold you back.
I do not think I will buy anything from this company.
I have heard this before but the reviews are very enlightening and a bunch of them are current and some local to my area. Of course, thank you for the consumer affairs.com info. Sounds really like that company really needed some positive advertising. There is being a somewhat gray area whenever it boils down to sponsored posts and I guess that’s where the big problem lies for many readers. Its never been established at least not to my knowledge if a blogger is under a legal contractual obligation to the company on how they are able to speak about a product that they was compensated for.
Added the Alecio Quilt and shams in navy, I kept the white bedding I had.
It’s not I reckon you deserve applause for diving in to try Ashley Furniture especially after a lot of remarks I read here. Did you hear of something like this before? I assume you expected you should get a certain amount that. Actually, I believe, you deserve a break from having to hunt, clean, paint and fix everything you use in your house. However, you have worked extremely a problem to get to the stage where you could’ve been offered the chance to blog about new furniture offered for a review. Certainly, I think that you have more than earned the right to style any cotton pickin’ way you wish! Southern lady cussin there!
I don’t read your blog as long as you have a certain style I am drawn to.
I read it since I admire all of your hard work and determination thru the years to be a great mom and wife and to supplement your family income and your wish to honor God in whatever you do.
I look forward to seeing what you think of the new furniture in the coming year or two. That’s really nice that you got some new furniture that you like. Keep reading! I guess I just hadn’t expected to read one of your blog posts that felt more like a commercial for home furnishings with pretentious names. Notice that I kept reading thinking that something, uh, different would start to unfold. I realized at this point, so there is the Vennilux coffee table. With that said, it looks like an old Lineberry factory cart with the added functionality of having a bottom shelf. I know that the tufts caught the dust and fuzz and the fabric was really pilling, We’ve had an ottoman in front of the sofa for a few years. By the way I had it covered with a quilt all the time, it’s looked grungy for a long time.
Sponsored posts make me cringe at some good stuff from times but when I see one containing literally thousands of dollars worth of stuff and it doesn’t even look like ‘you’ hereafter I guess it’s time for me to will make a beautiful and cohesive room out of found and transformed pieces just is likely to be gone now. Few months ago, I’m pretty sure I rearranged the furniture in my family room to a ‘twosofa’ setup in an L shape. One sofa was leather and another wore a white slipcover.
It looked a little disjointed and awkward, the pieces fit well in the room. It was comfortable. What we really needed was a sectional. Marion you are absolutely right. It’s difficult to find vintage pieces that will stand up to the wear and tear of a young family. I am sure that the pieces you have selected for your home are beautiful. LOVE Calvin’s room! Your style will all be different in a few years anyway, like the 81 yo grandma stated up above. Please continue with the wonderful inspiration and G d bless your adorable family. Notice, they’re the ones that have to sit and sleep and live with what you choose. I also added the Beldier rug, a knotted cotton/wool rug that works with our black/gray/blue color scheme and is soft underfoot. Basically, I also use an eclectic mix of old, not so new, and new in my decor. I purchased a lot of the larger items new and built around them using new and not so new. It’s me, it’s a nice style, and it works for my family. Eventually, that’s who I have to please. For instance, as far as the free sponsored products go -you have paid for them with your consistent hard work and quality brand you’ve built over time.
As you have chosen the items with your discerning eye, they look beautifully in your home. I look forward to hanging out with you in your family room, at your dining room table or in your studio for a few moments any time you post! I love the new sofa style and fabric you choose. It looks so comfortable! I love the media cabinet and identical gadgets. A well-known fact that is. I think I know it’s a very well planned out piece of furniture. Therefore, the coffee table is nice I love your antiques. Remember, I think your new furniture gonna be great for you and your family. My favorite piece is that new coffee table. I am seriously considering getting one just like it. I also love the fabric on your new couch. It looks so comfortable! As someone who moves loads of furniture, another side note on working with Ashley HomeStore I really appreciate it when people do it well and they do it well.
Their team was professional and careful.
They wouldn’t leave anything behind but the furniture, they padded the doorways and stair railings with moving blankets and wore booties over their shoes.
While following up with a phone call to doublecheck if everything met my expectations, they also provided excellent customer service. I’ve never had such stellar care, By the way I haven’t ordered a bunch of new furniture. Plenty of info can be found easily online. While angsting over which sectional was the one, I combed through the new Ashley HomeStorecatalog. I kept coming back to Salonne threepiece sectional. I’m sure you heard about this. I actually went with my gut and ordered that one, Know what guys, I was concerned about the light color and more modern styling. This is the case. Basically the thing I am particularly pleased with is the fabric.
It’s a lovely oatmeal color in a soft, durable weave, I’m almost sure I was a little nervous about how it should look and feel individually.
It doesn’t look like a fabric that’ll be grungy in six months, in spite the fact that it’s light.
I did tell Jeff and Marshall that their salsa eating needs to be a safe distance from the sofa, though! Known what little boy room my be complete without a bean bag chair? Can be purchased at select Ashley HomeStore locations, I selected the Teardrop Shag Bean Bag Chair, that isn’t available online. Calvin loves running and diving on it. Some information can be found easily by going online. Like swap out the curtain rod, I still have a few more things to do to the room, add a light and valance above the desk, deal with the closet and dresser, add some book storage, and similar far, though, I love how the room is coming gether and, more importantly, Calvin loves it, I’m pretty sure I hemmed the curtains already.
