#WhatISaw this Weekend

It pays to get out the house because it always ends in learning something new.  This Labor Day weekend I was getting cabin fever so I decided to trek a short distance to visit Boyles Furniture & Rugs flagship store in Mocksville, NC for its big holiday weekend sale.

If you aren’t familiar with the company, it has been around for over 60 years as the go-to location for top-notch furniture brands such as Baker, Drexel and Henredon, at discounted prices.  The company experienced the quake of the recession, but has reemerged this year with a rejuvenated vision that is bound to attract shoppers and designers across the spectrum in search of timeless, well-made pieces.  Below are some pictures of my favorites from the trip.

If you visit Boyles you will be overcome with welcoming employees willing to assist and maybe even hand you a cool beverage while you peruse.  While there, I met one of the Boyles owners and his wife who together own a furniture brand called Snug Furniture.  They have some amazing globally inspired pieces for inside and outside the home.  Check Snug out below.
