Last weekend my wife and I were just hanging out on the couch – The kiddo was at a play-date, and we were browsing Instagram. I’m not exactly sure what happened, but she asked me if I still liked this chair we got from Ikea that stands in the corner and is a home for all our extra couch pillows, throws, and blankets.
When we moved in 7 years ago, we had 1 couch, 1 bookcase, 1 TV stand, and a leather ottoman. It was nowhere nearly enough furniture for our new living room. We didn’t have a lot of extra money, we had just bought a house for goodness sakes, so we headed to the only place we knew to pick up a few extra pieces.
In the 7 years that passed, I think I sat in that chair exactly once. One time is all it took. I hated that chair. It was funny-looking and completely uncomfortable. But there it sat, for years in the corner, doing a good job just holding pillows off the floor.
That weekend, we decided to get rid of that chair. Don’t worry, we didn’t toss it in a landfill, or leave it on the street to get rained on. I put it on Craigslist and it sold quickly. We also got rid of the bookcase, and a bunch of other furniture we didn’t love anymore.
Now, we have the same problem in our living room we had when we moved in. It just looks empty.
But it was lunchtime. And the kiddo was gone. So we decided to go out to lunch together. We headed to a nearby outdoor mall to have a bite at our favorite lunch place. As we sat eating, there just happened to be a furniture store right next door – Arhaus.
I had heard about Arhaus before – but I wasn’t sure if my wife would like their furniture. Of course she did – and we both love the Arhaus motto “Furnishing our world”.
We also love the fact that they are partnering with the American Forest Foundation and will plant a tree for EVERY purchase made during their storewide sale.
While we were in the store, we both agreed that the Pollack was pretty much the perfect sectional couch. Made in the USA, and with dozens – nay hundreds of fabric options, this square sectional fits in modern to traditional styled homes. Here are some other sectional sofas from Arhaus.
As for their sale – they are having an upholstery sale right now where you can save up to 40%. If you are looking for a sectional, couch, upholstered bed, or in our case a new chair like this Meyer chair, they have some great deals.
We also found a new table to go behind our couch – the Adelade console table. We both love the double deck-edness of it, and the cool mid-century modern lines. But while we need a new table behind our couch, we have plans to completely re-do our living room and aren’t sure this will fit in the new design.
Another thing we love about Arhaus is their dedication to responsible and sustainable production. After some eye candy from their instagram account, check out the infographic with some handy tips about how to make YOUR home more eco friendly.
