One of the conversations I seem to always have with my girlfriends, co-workers, even my mom is one that goes a little like this … “well, I really love the [insert name of major piece of furniture] that I already have, but the rest of my stuff is [choose adjective: dated, old, dirty, not my style].”

Therefore, what I have decided to do is a regular feature where I create a showcase of affordable accessories and complementary pieces for a room/furniture example.

For this week, I know a lot of people that have a good neutral Living Room Seating set, but my not like the coordinating furniture they have in place around it. On the other hand, you could be like a lot of us getting started and have no coordinating furniture, but only those great beanbag chairs from your dorm room. Either way the standard couch and chair or couch and loveseat combo set will rarely provide you all of the seating space you need when you have people over.

I have created this showcase with a cute accent chair, a coordinating rug that should pull in any colors you already have in your current set, a hot leather coffee table and some coppery accents. This whole set is from Home Decorators Outlet. Your shopping list includes:

Leather Cocktail Table - $114.99 (was $329)
Area Run (5’3” x 8’3”) - $109.99 (was $399)
Accent Chair - $94.99 (was $269)
Lowboy - $184.99 (was $269)
Six Light Chandeliers - $99.99 (was $269)
Two 18” square framed prints - $19.99 each (were $109 each)

This set would have run over $1700 at retail. At the outlet, you can get it all for a little under $700!

Happy Shopping Saturday!!
