Recently, Erin from Parker took the time to reach out and let us know how much she loves the room the team at HW Home helped her create. Tell us: What’s your favorite room in your house and why?
The home office the designers at HW Home helped us create is our favorite room in the house. We ended up with pieces I love that I would have never chosen on my own. More than just enjoying any one piece of furniture, we appreciate that HW Home made it so easy to furnish a whole space from scratch. The selection, service, designers, availability, fast delivery — and, most important, the furniture quality — make their products an amazing value.
As part of an on-going home renovation project, my husband and I took out some clunky built-ins and replaced the carpet with wood flooring. Normally, we would buy a new chair or something and mash it in with our other hand-me-downs and Goodwill finds. For this room, we didn’t really have anything so we needed to furnish the room with all-new furniture that was purchased *just* for that space—a novel idea.
I found shopping for a whole room to be daunting. I mean, great problem to have but where do you start? I didn’t want matchy-matchy sets or oversized puffy couches with weird slipcovers, but I wanted it to look like I chose things on purpose. I drifted from one chain to another comparing items and trying to find what I wanted—which was difficult, because I wasn’t even sure what that would look like.
Now, I won’t say that angels started singing and lights came down from the sky, but when I went in and talked to an HW Home designer, I felt understood and rescued. The designer “got it” immediately when I mumbled a vague description of our style—kinda modern-southwest-rustic-industrial-ish, maybe? She created a floor-plan and design—suggesting paint colors, lighting, furniture, and a rug. We bought some pieces right away and then started filling in with the other items over time.
We are now deep into renovating the rest of the main level of the house. As soon as I dig out from the drywall dust, I’ll be headed back to HW Home to plan out a living room.
My husband loves (and I mean LOVES) the petrified wood lamp and I feel like I’m much cooler now that I have a pair of funky cowhide ottomans.
