One Kings Lane just announced the newest feature on their site. They now have a space where available items will be used to create vignettes called The Studio. Many buyers aren't able to easily imagine how a product shown in a product image translates to their space. Seeing items being used in a vignette can be helpful. I'm sharing this news because the images OKL used in their announcement email are fantastic. The crisp white walls with blue and white, wood tones, and neutrals is a look I love.
While on the subject of OKL, I should mention the Safavieh rug sale. When I checked last, there were still some gorgeous choices available.
My favorite thing about OKL is the vintage section. I consistently see pieces of furniture that are fantastic. Granted, you certainly can find items for less on Craigslist, for example, but you'll most likely have painting, refinishing, or reupholstering involved.
Some favorite finds right now: block print pillow, stripe pillow, Hawthorne jars, Henry Link chest, pair of white Chinese Chippendale chairs, ottomans, Fortuny pillow, Kimono pillow, brass bamboo bench, Ming coffee table
I do a fair amount of shopping on OKL, and I pay attention to prices. You can get some great deals, but don't assume everything is discounted. I saw this listing, above, and remembered the ballpark of what I paid for mine, below, on eBay. The pair was somewhere between $30-40, and I vividly recall being annoyed with myself for buying only one pair!
And, lastly, three favorite blue and white Instagram posts : )
