One of my favorite shopping spots (and a sale!)


Hey there! Hope you had a great week! We have a fun weekend planned -- I'll tell you more about that next week. :) 

I posted a photo of our basement to my Instagram page yesterday and it got me thinking...I have a lot of furniture from one store in particular! 

I've shopped World Market for years and have always been happy with their products. I don't know if I've ever shared all of these goodies in one spot. It turns out they're having a big sale this weekend so the timing is perfect! (Check the bottom of the post for the discount code.)


Most of their furniture is super affordable (especially if you can catch it on sale) and I've been quite pleased with everything we've purchased from there. Is it amazing quality? No. But we've had good experiences so far. And I just love their style. 

This is the photo I shared on Instagram this week -- I'll list the WM products under each photo so you can easily find them if you're interested:

I shared all of the sources for this room when I first showed it to you a few months ago, so if you're curious about anything be sure to check that out! 

But I have a few things from World Market here and love them all! That coffee table is very similar to a much more expensive version from another store. I think they have different colors available too. The little table that slides under the sofa is one of my favorites because it's so convenient. 


Behind the sofa is a long table you've probably seen all over blogland. I swear I see it in someone's house every time I log into Instagram. 😂 So if you're looking for an original piece, this isn't it. But I do love it!:

It's super long and not too deep, so it fits great as a console table or behind a sofa. I added the hardware when I got it, and that small detail does set it apart from the others just a bit. It looks like they now have a darker stained version and black as well! 


I always admired this desk when I visited the store, but never had a need for it. (I built in a big desk in my office at the old house.) When we moved here I knew I'd need something and I wanted a desk that would be pretty floating in the middle of the room:

I love it! I love the design and the size -- it's plenty big for what I need. The sides have pull out shelves that I can use if needed too. 

I added hardware to this one too:

The drawer was really hard to open and again, I just love the added detail. I also love that I can rest my feet on the wood that spans it underneath. It's the little things. ;)


 And finally, we have a few items in the family room as well:

I loved that tribal coffee table so much, this matching end table came home with me years ago. Just a warning -- liquids will leave a mark on these. I keep meaning to put some kind of protective coat on the top of both of them because of that. But otherwise I've been very happy with them.

I bought those gray/blue chairs for the dining-room-turned-library in our old house:

And now they are a perfect fit in our family room! I have to tell you -- they are SO comfy. Nice and roomy too. I like the simple lines and the size is perfect. 

I'm considering having them recovered...I like them that much! Again, they aren't incredible quality but they've held up really well. 


I've found many decorative items from WM over the years too -- it's just a fun store to shop! They are having a 30 percent off sale through this Monday. If you order online you get the discount and then free shipping with code "famfriends30." 

Do you have any of these pieces? If you have a store nearby they have many of their furniture items in the store, so you can buy them there. Most I think you have to order though. Have a great weekend my friends!

  2. Discount code not showing up. All I see is the word Save written 4 times in red and the site says that's not a valid code.

  3. Hi Sarah! I really like the diamond-shaped art in your home office. Can you tell me where you found it? Thanks!

    2. What a great find! I found something similar on Overstock but at $100, a little too pricey for me.

  4. Love your home especially that basement family room. We are in the market for a sectional and just wondered how yours is holding up and if the cushions are sagging at all. My Bernhardt sofas have not held up well over the years and we are in desperate need of a new look. Thank you for any feedback you can give.
