Study Reveal with Bassett Furniture!

Jan 24, 2019

I am so excited to show you this reveal! I mentioned I was partnering with Bassett Furniture in this post to makeover my home office. I absolutely love the way it turned out! It's dark, moody, and transitional. Most of my home is light, bright and neoclassical so this look may surprise many of you. I wanted it to feel cozy and a bit masculine since this is where my husband works when he's not traveling. I included his favorite things-a bar cart, a humidor and a TV right across from his desk. He loves working in here, but it has just enough feminine flair for me to take it over when he's not home.

I chose this gorgeous desk and credenza at Bassett online, but I was even more impressed when I saw it in person. My dad knocked on the wood and said,"They don't make furniture like this anymore!" I love the transitional lines and updated gold toned hardware. The deep, rich color is perfect for a study.

Every masculine study needs a bar cart. All the soap operas have one for the ambiance! Dramatic pause with your back turned is optional. 

This has become my chair to sit in the evenings and catch up with my husband while he finishes up work. Bassett lets you customize your furniture, from the finishes to the fabrics. I ordered it in a cream velvet to contrast with the dark walls. They also make custom pillows so I was able to pair the fabrics right in the showroom. 

I love the pop of a jewel tone against the dark gray walls. I chose purple and green in small amounts to give this monochromatic room just a bit more interest.

I absolutely love the lamps! Quality lamps can be hard to find at a decent price point. Bassett has so many gorgeous ones to choose from at a great price. Pop over to their showroom for mirrors, art chandeliers and lamps as well as furniture.

All the heart eyes for this chair! The geometric fabric is right up my alley as you know. The lines of this chair is just amazing too. The arms fit perfectly under the desk so there's no chipping.

Check out the x-back that's mimicked in the legs of the desk.

Just enough color

I hope you enjoyed my study reveal! Thank you to Bassett Furniture for sponsoring this reveal, and the staff at the new store in The Woodlands for being so helpful.

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.

Classic chair in a gorgeous velvet

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!
