We’ve only been in our home for a few weeks, so we’ve mostly focused on the big picture – painting the walls, giving the kitchen a makeover, and finishing the porch-turned-studio. But, as we’re getting settled, I’m also looking for those finishing touches that can be added to bring a room closer to completion.
I was able to work with Arhaus as a sponsor to bring in some of those finishing touches to a few of the rooms in our new home.
First up, an ottoman to prop our feet and complete the seating arrangement in the living room.
The Baldwin Ottoman in Trinidad Flax was the perfect size and, while the textured fabric isn’t exactly like the fabric on the sectional, it’s a close visual match and the color is spot on.
The Arhaus product developers travel the globe working directly with skilled artisans to make sure their products are well made and that really shows in this ottoman. It is heavy, the cushion feels firm, but comfortable, and it’s on little casters, so it can be easily moved for wrestling matches.
Also for the living room, although it’s a versatile piece that could be used many places, I picked out the Altamura Glass Dome with a Marble Base.
It’s a beautiful piece with thick, wavy glass that makes anything it covers look more important.
For a simple fall arrangement, I filled it with an ironstone footed bowl holding pumpkins, pinecones and moss. I can’t wait to put a gingerbread house under it for Christmas.
And the marble base is just yummy. It’s hard to beat a good piece of marble.
I also fell in love with the Antoine Brass Table Task Lamp.
It has such a warm and beautiful finish and the unique design means it doesn’t take up valuable surface space.
And, lastly, I definitely needed a mattress to finish off the antique French daybed in the upstairs guest/sewing room. Arhaus carried a well-priced Pure Comfort twin/trundle-sized mattress that was just the right size and proportion for this bed.
I haven’t spent the night on it, but I can say that it’s a good firmness for a daybed that doubles as a sofa.
The story with the mattress and with all of the products I selected from Arhaus is quality. Everything was heavy, felt nice, looked nice, which is exactly what you want out of multi-tasking investment pieces for the home.
Some other things I picked up from browsing around their site (and I spent a lot of time there)…
- They don’t just care about the look and quality, but how a piece is made. They are committed to using sustainable materials.
- Their designs are well thought-out to work hard and play hard. For example, the glass cloche is delicate, just because it’s glass, but it had a heft to it that was missing from other cloches I’ve owned. It feels like their pieces will last a long time.
- Their offerings are unique. As I was scrolling through their products, I found many designs that I hadn’t seen before. And their entire site has a cohesive, yet collected feel. Arhaus is the kind of site you can get lost in and inspired by.
Here are some other items I fancied when I was lost on their site…
I would’ve gotten this Sketchbook Blossom Wallpaper, if I thought I had the time to hang it before this post! I might still order it, though.
I also loved this drafting table! My vintage drafting table is awesome, but it’s missing some key pieces to the mechanism, so I can’t lock it in place. So, the Industrial Crank Drafting Table was very tempting…
And the Rio Checked Chair? Need I say more?
