Beat It

Yesterday I was in Home Goods and they had some great new things. Here are some iPhone pictures I took..

I wanted to take this chair home but had no use for it.

They had tons of great beat-up storage pieces. They were a lot better in person than in my crappy phone pictures.

"Beat up" furniture (no, I won't call it Shabby Chic or Rustic) is a new thing for me.. I never liked it much but I've started to be really drawn to it. I think a bit of Charlotte (the city) is rubbing off on me; it's pretty common in design here.

For example, check out the "beat up" demilune tables in this Charlotte home I featured last week:


I really like when it's mixed with all contemporary pieces.

Here is a chair I'm using for a project, it will be reupholstered and put next to a contemporary Karlstad sofa (and yes the zebra cowhide will also be in the space).

And a goodie from Pinterest...


Old + New... I love it.

  1. Love that first chair you posted, but I think I might love the one your Grandma-in-law brought you a few months ago :)  But in general Homegoods has some pretty great things!

  6. I thin I'll adopt the "beat up" thing! I don't mind collating it Rustic, but i really don't like Shabby Chic. Great finds at HomeGoods, I love chest on the third photo! Gotta go check out my HomeGoods! ; )

  7. I just love Home Goods.  They do have some awesome things right now.  I feel like they are going for the Restoration Hardware look.
