I know I said I’d be away from the blog for a bit, but I wanted to share some last minute gift ideas with you, so think of this as my Friday post. 🙂
Earlier this week, I stopped in one of my favorite furniture and accessory stores, IO Metro, to do some last minute Christmas shopping. (You’ve seen their furniture on my blog before – we got all 8 of our dining room chairs there.) I had every intention of popping in, picking up ONE gift, and popping out, but once I saw the new accessories I was a goner!
IO’s selection of pillows is amazing. Here are a few of my down-filled favorites.
They had some really unique new vases in stock as well. These are the best shades of blue and green.
I LOVE this fish! If we were big umbrella people, I’d use him as an umbrella stand in our entryway.
Here are just a couple of my favorite mirrors. The first one is only $49.95!
Last, two pieces that I’d scoop up in a heartbeat if they were in my budget. This is just about the cutest horse painting I’ve ever seen!
These chairs are relatively new to the store and come in amber and clear. They’re pretty much da bomb. Couldn’t you just see one of these combined with a white laquer writing desk? So chic.
Even though I could have taken one of everything home and been a very happy blogger, I showed some restraint. I walked out of there with ONE gift for myself and ONE gift for somebody else! Want to see what I chose for our living room?
Isn’t it adorable? After I realized all accessories were 20% off, this pillow had no choice but to come home with me!
Did you know IO Metro has a blog too? I’m a subscriber, and it’s a great way to stay in tune with their sales (20% off accessories through 12/24!). They also do features of their products in real homes which is a great way to see how other people arrange their furniture and accessories.
The store started locally, but now has locations throughout the mid-south, so you can still pick up that perfect gift Christmas if you hurry! Happy shopping!
