Chic Review: Watson’s

Boy am I glad it’s 2020! For the last half of 2019, our family of five lived in a hotel room for six months while our home got rebuilt from a bad wind storm where two trees fell on our house. Luckily everyone made it out ok (which is amazing since we were all home when it hit), but it decimated our roof and pretty much everything in it. We had to replace pretty much all our furniture, but with three little ones and our busy schedule, we didn’t have much time to shop.

I knew Watson’s had a huge, brand-new showroom with everything we could need for indoor furniture, rugs and decor, plus everything outdoor. So we got a sitter and in one afternoon we found everything we needed for the house.

Their staff was incredible about listening to all the rooms we needed items for, they looked through pictures of our space and Pinterest boards of items we liked to get a feel for our style, and then made recommendations for us. We loved their suggestions, and then we were able to customize it to our space and needs (we swapped the fabric it came with for a pre-treated, kid-friendly fabric and flipped the layout of our couch — it was no extra cost to customize those things, by the way). We had a very small window between when our contractors would be done with the house (when things could be on our new floors again) and when we were moving back in (when we’d need all our furniture). They went out of their way to make sure everything was made-to-order just right, and delivered right on time.

It seriously couldn’t have been a better experience. We are SO happy with the furniture we got, and we can’t wait to go back and pick out everything we need for outside once warmer weather arrives! I highly recommend you check out Watson’s new showroom in Sharonville if you’re in the market for anything home-related (or if you just love decor ideas!). They’re definitely not just pools, spas and pool tables any more! They had so many great furniture/decor options to choose from, and even better, their staff made what could have been a time-consuming, stressful, overwhelming process SO easy for us that we can’t wait to come back!

To top it all off – she’s newly engaged so she’s going to get some custom jewelry pieces made for her big day and I’m so excited for her!

Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams Spring Launch Event

We’re hosting our annual Eco Chic Fashion Show at Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams (their beautiful high-end furniture is all sustainably made!) so I wanted to give you a sneak peek of the space, and got a little bonus surprise to find out they just got in LOTS of exciting new arrivals for their Spring Launch Event.

With it, they’re introducing classic modern and new traditional silhouettes, boldly punctuated by a vivid and uplifting mix of colors, textures, patterns, and prints.   I got a chance to chat with Mitchell before the Spring Launch and he said inspiration for all of this came from their travels… so you’ll find unconventional forms and sculptural shapes, as well as familiar designs updated for today’s living.

This season, they also bring you more ways to take their signature style and make it your own.  While most of their upholstery is available in 300+ fabrics and leathers, enhanced custom options for their beloved classic icons now include pieces without welt to emphasize clean lines, and bench seat cushions for an even sleeker aesthetic and continuous comfortable sit.

They also have a Comfort Club customer loyalty program that gives you 20% savings every day, with exclusive access to special offers and services, including complimentary in-home design.  It’s free and easy to join!
