Apartment Furniture

As I may mentioned before, I'm in the process of moving to a new apartment in Washington, DC.  I'm so ridiculously excited and I LOVE the place!

One thing that has been simultaneously fun and stressful is shopping for furniture.  I'm still undecided on bedroom furniture, but I've fallen in love with a few things from L.L.Bean's collection.  One of my friends decorated his place with L.L.Bean stuff a few years ago and I loved it.

Here are a few of the things making an appearance in my new home...

I really like that this television stand tucks neatly into a corner.  I'm living in a one bedroom apartment that, while generously sized, still requires me to smart about space.

I'm also really digging the matching desk.  I got it in stone tan...if B likes it we'll have to get him the same one in green.  

And my personal's made from reclaimed wood.  I really like how it's kind of imperfect and that no two pieces are exactly the same.  It's definitely a little more unique than the piles of IKEA furniture I had up in Boston.

What are your thoughts?  Where do you all like to find home furnishings?  What's your interior design style?



  1. Really like the coffee table and side table. My fiance and I are in the process of buying some new furniture ourselves. I am really loving what is in the new Pottery Barn catalog, you should check it out!

  2. I didn't even know that LL Bean made furniture! All your picks are absolute perfection and I hope you take lots of pictures of your new place when you move in :)

  3. @Palm Trees: I'm still looking for a couch, so I'll definitely be checking out Pottery Barn.

    @Allison: Thanks! I didn't know until a good friend of mine bought a really cool bench from LLBean...the stuff is great. And I'll absolutely be sharing photos once I'm moved in.

  4. I have this coffee table-- it is fabulous! It has held up pretty well, considering we enjoy entertaining!

  5. Buy and sell new and used modern, outdoor, office, bedroom and home furniture.
    Choose from a great selection of gently used furniture for every room in your home.
