A Surprising Trip to Safavieh

If you look at One Kings Lane, Rue La La, Gilt, and other flash sale sites for home furnishings now and then, I'm sure you see Safavieh items for sale. I'm never really all that impressed by the listings, as they usually look like copies of Worlds Away or Bungalow 5 items.

When traveling in New Jersey recently, I saw a Safavieh store and decided to check it out on a whim. I was dismissing their pieces without even seeing them in person and I was curious!

When I was greeted by two John Matthew Moore prints in the vestibule, I was delighted, but still wasn't sure about the furniture. 


As I walked around the store, I was so, so impressed! There were pieces from Baker, Kindel, Vanguard, Century and many more! I snapped one photo after another...




This bed should look familiar...it's the Vanguard bed that's in our master bedroom!


They had it in a beautiful, blue linen and their price was pretty good (though not as good as the price I got from the Artful Lodger in Charlottesville).


They had some beautiful storage pieces for dining rooms, some marked down dramatically.
 






When I saw this, I thought "oh, a copy of a Baker chair." Nope...it was a Baker chair.


Did you see that yellow gold chair above? I went back for another look. It was also marked down.










They store was merchandized so beautifully. Every room had me thinking I wanted one or two pieces on display.

The fabric room confirmed that they are carrying some great brands.





A quick visit changed my opinion of the Safavieh name. They only have stores in the New York City area, unfortunately. I wish we had a few in Virginia!
