Excess Exposure – Furniture


OK, this is a collection of photos from one of my first shopping trips with TBG. He was just trying to expose me to some of the various malls here, and there are a TON of malls here. This particular one had a furniture store that captured my attention for a while – I mean, just LOOK at some of this stuff!!

Looks like a giant birdcage, doesn't it?

Looks like a giant birdcage, doesn’t it?










Home furnishings seem to be on a HUGE scale here – large, low, and massive. They’re built for lounging, I think…. Not for watching TV or conversation. Now, I’m not a particularly good “lounger” – so these pieces didn’t particularly fit me – except for maybe the “princess” pieces…. I honestly think I’ve seen some of these at Walt Disney World…..lol.

Color seems to be highly saturated, very few pastels or “dusty” colors. Nothing that’s neutral feeling to my eyes, even the tan/camel colored sofa in our living room is pretty dynamic, it’s got some orange in it somehow and has the intensity to stand up to the other black pieces in the house, I think.

And then there’s the accents – sparkle, glass, faceted surfaces all over – anything to reflect…. Silver, shiny, chrome, mirrored, all are very popular surfaces.

I think what TBG was doing was actually exposing me to the excess that I will encounter here. And there is a LOT of excess here…. This was just a bit of excess in furniture.

  1. You really, really need the canopied (sp) bed!! AMAZING!! What furniture came with your house when you got there??? I liked the round bed too but Jackson would fall off!!

    • LOL… I only need the canopied bed if someone else has to crawl around it to get it made up, I am too old to be creeping over and around something like that…..lol. The furniture they got for us was HUGE, BLACK, naugahyde stuff. Seriously massive, and so low to the ground that when TBG sat on it, his knees were almost up around his ears…. it was funny. Hard to get up off of it too, and the cushions were HARD. Really odd the way things are different, huh??

    • Rats, my reply got gone! The only way I need that bed is if someone else is responsible for making it up everyday, you know? Too hard for e to crawl over it to make it up…..lol. And the furniture the company bought for this place was HUGE, BLACK NAUGAHYDE stuff,…. so massive. And low to the ground…. TBGs knees were up around his chin – not pretty when we tried to get up off it!!
