The decor doesn’t always match my style (or I should say not everything they carry is my style), but I have mad, deep respect for the designers, and there are always certain things I love. And it’s great that they are working with individual artisans now. I think they have stood the test of time, and are even responsible for some great advances. For example, I remember when no one would ever mix white and off white in any room, ever. But then Pottery Barn started doing it in all of its bathrooms, and boom – now it’s ok to do. This isn’t the best example because it was so long ago, but it is the best I can find:
While I was writing this, I discovered that Pottery Barn makes hot pink chairs, sofas, and sectionals. I can not believe I didn’t know this. The custom build your own sectional and sofas are on a good sale, and the Beverly Sofa is very reasonably priced at $899 and 15% off with email registration (it’s the one I used in the Cape Cod living room I just did). Here are a few – aren’t they gorgeous?
Finally, there is a Warehouse Sale at Pottery Barn now with discounts up to 75%. I think the best deals are on the lighting – some are literally hundreds of dollars off. And some of the furniture is priced really well, like this leather sofa, almost $700 off:
