I am getting a new house later this month. It is a minor surprise because I was not really looking very hard but I found a house that I like. I would appreciate any help with furniture. I have read through much of this thread.
The house is a traditional cape cod with an awesome addition on the back which is basically a large (1,000 SF) room in the back that has a kitchen and family room combined into one great room. It has wood floors, they are not solid wood but some kind of engineered wood floor.
I am going to start from scratch in that area and only bring in a few framed prints that I have. The yard is going to take some money so I am perhaps looking at a nice couch and dining table and a few rugs to start with then adding nice pieces later down the line.
Does anyone know anything about Hancock and Moore? Do they make good furniture? I did not even know this part of the forum existed until I searched for information on the Herman Miller Eames Lounge chairs and a link came up for styleforum.
Even though Herman Miller is having a 15% off sale I am going to pass on the Lounge Chair for now and try to catch it next year.
Style wise I like an industrial slant. Also I have to check out the addition. I believe that they may have covered up some brick when they did the addition which I would like to possibly expose as I like an interior brick accent.
Also a rant:
WTF is it with women and those small accent pillows? Do I need 20 on a couch and 40 on a bed? And then If I move them I get a dirty look. It really gets under my skin.
