My Home Office Makeover with Bassett Furniture!

Nov 9, 2018

I'm so excited to announce that I am partnering with Bassett Furniture to completely furnish my home office! I haven't shown you much of this room since it needs all new furniture. It's an important space because it is the first room off the foyer. It also has double glass French doors so there is no hiding the need for a makeover! The walls (paint and moulding), chandelier and rug have been updated recently. I've also added a mirror behind the desk and new abstract art on a perpendicular wall since I took this photo. Bassett will be providing a new desk, credenza with lamps and an accent chair in the corner. The design will be transitional with richer colors often seen in a study. Goodbye, white cottage-style furniture!

A new Bassett store just opened last week near me in The Woodlands, Texas. However, there are stores all across the country if you want to visit. I love that their furniture can fit any design style, and the customization options make it truly unique. It's especially important to me since I love to mix styles in my own home for a curated look. It truly is a place where you can buy an entire room of furniture and no one would guess it all came from the same store. If mixing styles sounds complicated, they also offer free design help!

I received the full customer experience when I visited the store a few days ago. Debi, a designer with the company for 14 years, helped me learn about the construction process, gave me information about the fabrics, and even showed me computer renderings of what those fabrics would look like on the furniture. This is truly a great resource for customers and designers alike. Most of my custom design projects require waiting on fabric samples in the mail and trips to multiple furniture stores all over town. This reduces the time of the design process to a one store visit. A big selling point for me is that the furniture is made in North Carolina, and the ship time for custom pieces is usually 30 days! I can honestly say that is the shortest time frame I have ever been given.

All of these fabrics at my fingertips were like Christmas Day for me!

Fabric selection is just as important as the furniture. It can make or break a piece. There are so many fabrics to choose from, and they are all very current with graphic prints, performance, and ikat styles. 

I love that they have Sunbrella! All of my living room furniture is covered in it to make it family friendly. I get so many questions about how I have almost white furniture with three boys and a dog. This is why!

There are also custom pillow options! You can pick your upholstery and pillow fabric at the same time. I chose the perfect sized pillow for a chair without having to measure. My designer and I just grabbed a couple of lumbar pillows and tested each on the showroom chair to see which would work the best.

The custom options continue with the stain finishes.

Custom headboards-nailheads, no nailheads, tufting, no tufting, choose your fabric, etc. That gray channel tufted one is calling my name!

Foot options-love the gold!

The most surprising item Bassett offers are custom drapes. They can also measure and install for you too. It truly is one stop shopping. 

Now that you know about the customization options and the gorgeous fabrics, let's take a tour of the showroom!

If I needed dining room furniture I would buy every single thing you see here. 

Design tip-If your husband refuses to have throw pillows use a pattern on his chair instead. I've learned a lot of men really don't like pillows!

It also helps that it's a recliner that doesn't look like a recliner.

If you don't want a full patterned chair consider upholstering only part if it in a pattern. You could have the front and back different fabrics like you see here. This is the first time I have been told that this is possible from a furniture store. It's usually only available from custom upholsterers.

I love this chair so much!

 The chandeliers are absolutely gorgeous!

It's not all transitional. I used a similar farmhouse chandelier in a recent project.

 I love this quatrefoil mirror!

You know I'm a fan of this style of mirror!

The chippendale chair in the top right corner is so on trend right now! It actually never went out of style, but I'm seeing it everywhere lately. You could even put a performance fabric on the seat for a breakfast room with kids.

Another awesome chandelier

The art choices really impressed me. So many of my clients need large scale artwork since even the walls are bigger in Texas. This is perfect!

Black and white abstract art gets me every single time.

I love these lamps! The price is great too.

Bassett is a great source for beautiful, mid-priced rugs. Most brick and mortar stores offer either the cheapest quality rugs you've ever seen, or silk rugs from Tibet that cost as much as a year of college tuition.

I hope you enjoyed the tour! You can see these products and more on the Bassett website. Stay tuned for the full home office room reveal!
