We find ourselves at Green Front getting some fresh air and inspiration through imported design accessories. Follow us where we discover room-upon-room of Indian rugs, Turkish ottomans, and furniture. Beautiful muted colors fuse a modern sense of style applied with traditional handmade techniques.
GreenFront, Farmville, VA
This past weekend, we found ourselves in Farmville, VA exploring GreenFront. GreenFront is an outlet that allows the average Jo to shop for furniture, fabrics, and accessories for her home at the fraction of retail cost.
As a former buyer for a high-end furniture store in Chicago and as a consumer, I could confidently guess the “retail cost” of any piece that proudly displayed a price tag -again at a fraction. We found a magnificent floor mirror with a price of only $600; I could see it sitting in a Chicago showroom for easily $2500. This was a distinguished piece filled with drama -oh, and can I say, it was a ‘friendly mirror.‘
If I only had the space…
Losing ourselves in color and texture accompanied by the ohhs and ahhs that challenge even the most splendid fireworks are frequently heard. The labyrinth of rooms expands the excitement as it reveals mounds upon mounds of hand wrought finery. It’s seriously tough to remember that rugs were meant to ‘walk upon’ as we hunt with our shoes on.
Does that read like soft-core to you? I didn’t mean to write it that way but I loooooove undulating texture. Woops. There I go again!
You’ll see within the furniture section of the photos a bit of trendspotting. Embossed leathers, zebra highlights, and oversized ottomans were featured. I loved them all. Then again, I’m a sucker for a great ottoman on a gorgeous rug.
Photo Mea Culpa (Mental note: dSLR -Never leave home without it!)
Our unplanned field trip photos were taken w/just my iPhone. I apologize for any over-exposure that has occurred; I did my best to remedy of that w/Photoshop.
