First Impression = Best Impression. Ready to GLAM up your furniture within budget?
Raise your hand if you’ve been down ALL the rabbit holes (online) to find the perfect sofa or sectional. When it came time to update my living room, I’ve been there 100 times. Grateful for the partnership invitation from Ashley to visit my local Ashley store in Mayfield Heights, Ohio, to update my living room with a new sectional because “Ashley is America’s #1 furniture & mattress brand.” Let’s see if that’s true.
A Warm Welcome
What’s not to love about walking into a store and being immediately greeted? Eye contact plus a smile plus immediately offering assistance. Thank you. Made the daunting task of selecting a new sectional feel much more manageable. And fun.
“Insider Tips” makes shopping 100 times better, amiright?
Tip #1 (& done): Bring a room planner outline (with accurate dimensions) of everything in the space for the new furniture PLUS the spaces between everything in that area. That’s other furniture, walls, doors, windows, and extras (TVs, stereo, fireplace…). EVERYTHING. A roadmap for your shopping journey. This outline is your ride-or-die, making sure that you purchase new furniture that speaks to your style and fits perfectly within your space’s confines. Eyeing it will NOT work when purchasing furniture. Been there?
P.O.V: Planning NOT to leave my new, cozy sectional.
😍 I had serious “heart eyes” for the HUGE selection of furniture in the store, from contemporary to traditional. But – how do you find your style in their massive selection? Simple. The store’s layout makes it easy-peasy to navigate and browse through (bonus, I got in my steps for the day – IYKYK), and seeing sectional styles on display with decor helped me see how each piece might look in a real home setting – like mine!
I could count the things I love about all of the sectionals that Ashley offers, but it would be a long list! Ashley is known for its commitment to cozy quality. A wide range of sectionals that are not only stylish but built to last. Durability plus quality of materials = confidence that my investment would stand the test of time. Now, to decide…
I was pleasantly surprised to find out that many of the sectionals at Ashley could be customized to meet my specific space needs. I was able to configure it to suit my living room’s layout perfectly based on the measurements I took and brought with me. This level of personalization was a game-changer and ensured that my new sectional would be a perfect fit! Bonus: with financing options available at Ashley, there can be options for every budget!
Delivery + Installation
Feeling ALL the “in-stock” vibes – and loving it!
After making my selection, I learned that almost all pieces are in stock and available for fast delivery (usually within a few days to a few weeks!) The store’s “white glove” delivery and installation services made the process even smoother. The team was prompt and professional. And impressive. And fast! They set up my new sectional to perfection down to the inch of where I wanted it. And (thank-all-the-gods!) they took away the mess of all the furniture wrappings and came prepared with a professional cleaning spray to remove any hint of any teeny-tiny pieces of dust (if there was any…which there wasn’t.)
Neutrals are ANYTHING but boring. Styling this neutral sectional has dozens of possibilities.
Fun Fact: ANY and ALL of the items you see at Ashley (styled with any of their pieces) are available for purchase. Talkin’ decorative items, rugs, candles, lamps – ALL of it! And may I remind you that they have a HUGE accessory wall of on-trend items?
I’ll be warming up my space with some of these candles and a chunky blanket for a perfect night in on this sectional. Cozy accessories (especially for Ohio winters) will be styled in (more photos to come, stay tuned!) Mixing it up with chic salvaged items from a local vintage shop on the coffee table will add an extra interesting touch. Or if you’re a DIY enthusiast, have you seen THIS service?
Moral of the Story: Little did I know that this visit to Ashley would lead to finding the ideal sectional and an extraordinary shopping experience! Nothing short of exceptional. From the welcoming atmosphere and vast selection to the knowledgeable staff and customization options, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
The end result? A stunning sectional that has transformed my living room from “cram” into “glam.” If you’re in the market for furniture (or accessories) to “GLAM” up the look of your space (within budget) that combines style, quality, and affordability, I highly recommend giving Ashley a visit. It’s not just a furniture store; it’s a destination for creating your dream home.
Next stop? Updating my “glam” dining room or home office!
