Restoration Hardware is a store that I literally could spend hours in dreaming about how to incorporate their unique industrial style with my love for modern cottage. The prices are normally out of my budget but did you know they have outlet stores in certain locations? We are fortunate enough to have one outside of Boston, about an hour from our house. I recently took a trip in hopes to find a media console for our study, which it was my lucky day……I found the exact one I loved at a 60% discount because of a scratch.
This was my first time visiting the outlet and can I just tell you, my mouth dropped to the floor when I walked in. An enormous warehouse like space filled with items from Restoration Hardware.
Everything from bathroom vanities to small accessory items.
If you want to purchase something large, they will hold the item for up to 48 hours (may vary by location) so you can make arrangements to get it home. Bring a truck if you have one!
I was shocked at the huge discounts. We are not talking 10 or 20% off. More like 45-60% off. Insane!
My son was annoyed at the shopping trip but did love this couch :).
Dishes. Dishes and more dishes!
Baskets for $20 anyone?
My son loved this floor lamp. We don’t have a place for something like this but boy, what a steal if you do!
Some of the items at Restoration Hardware are a bit to industrial for my taste but I often can find pieces to mix in with our current modern cottage design at our home. I ended up getting this metal media console below for over half off the retail price. It works out perfectly for storing kids games and baskets full of play dough and smaller super hero figurines. Here is a picture of the study decorated for Christmas with the media console.
I am in the middle of finishing this room as the study was revealed with Christmas decorations and once everything was removed, the room was bare! ha. The Ikea shelves are put together to flank the fireplace and the new pillow covers arrived over the weekend.
So now it’s time to accessorize. I have some exciting news to share soon about Home Goods but needless to say, the room will be filled with their accessories and home furnishings :). So if you haven’t been to a restoration hardware outlet, look to see if there is one in your area. You won’t be sorry!
PS. if you are a multigenerational family, be sure to read this post from Sunday, we need you for a potential TV show!
