There are certain brands that I/my team go back to again and again and Article is one of those brands. I’ve been a longtime fan and have used their pieces in many a makeover. Their furniture and decor are well-designed, and beautiful, and their delivery and installation services are truly unmatched. We love working with them and have tried out so many of their pieces so we can confidently attest to their style, quality, and longevity. Today, in honor of Article’s Presidents’ Day Sale (happening right now!), we have a $2,000 Article gift card to give away to one lucky reader. All you have to do is check out their site and leave a comment here with the piece that you’d love to bring home. To help aid in your search, we’ve rounded up the best deals along with a few inspirational shots of our tried-and-true favorites. But before we get into that, I wanted to show you the sectional we grabbed for the mountain house. When I needed a really comfortable yet sturdy, beautiful sofa that could hold up with renters AND our extended stays with lots of guests, I turned to Article…
My New Sectional
Last summer, my sofa frustration was at an all-time high as our awesome vintage sectional fell apart anytime anyone sat on it. Literally sitting on it was a problem. My friend, Annie, so bluntly put it – “You hate this sofa, get a new one.” Yes, it was almost 3 years of tolerating the vintage sectional. I knew that I needed A. Extreme comfort – this is a vacation house for Pete’s sake. B. It needed to be family/kid/pet-friendly (i.e. dark and hard to destroy), and C. Not have a crazy long lead time or be super expensive. Even though we weren’t living at the mountain house full time we were renting it out and the guests were also complaining about how annoying our vintage sectional was. So I ordered this sectional from Article (it’s a new sofa for them), it came within 2 weeks, and after the wonderful white glove installers put it together and left I was overwhelmed with a sense of relief and joy. It is SO COMFORTABLE, with a wide whale corduroy that is so soft – and has the perfect mountain house family-friendly vibe.
Over Christmas, I would come down every morning early, throw myself on the sofa with my coffee and kindle, and say to myself about how it literally couldn’t be more comfortable and perfect for our needs there. I recently convinced my friend Kaitlin to get the green version even saying, “As your friend, I want you to have this level of comfort in your family room.” I don’t know what magic foam or filling they have in their cushions but I swear it’s the perfect level of comfort and give. Some sofas are too tightly filled so even though the cushions are high-end/quality it almost propels you off the sofa. And then other types of filling don’t have enough structure so they look like garbage after a few months of use. It’s this high quality + perfect amount of give that makes it so comfortable and long-lasting. I should know, I’ve had their other sectional, the Burrard, for almost 9 years now and it’s still so comfortable and yet structured! I hate showing you iPhone shots, but we are going to shoot this summer.
If you’re the lucky winner of this $2,000 gift card, I can’t recommend this sectional enough. But if you want to stretch those winnings a little further, we’ve rounded up the creme de la creme of their Presidents Day Sale offerings (happening now until 2/20). These items will deliver on comfort, style, and quality over and over, for years and years.
This was the debut of the Burrard sectional in our Glendale house before it sold. It really was perfect. We then used it for our living room in the LA house, and I’ve moved it up to Portland, where it lives in our living room right now. Sure, the chaise isn’t going to work where it is and it’s the wrong orientation for this room, but it’s just so comfortable that it’s hard to buck up and buy or invest in a new statement sofa. I’m going to miss how comfortable it is!
Like I said before, we’ve used Article sofas in many a makeover including Sara’s TV room and Ryann’s living room. Sara has the Sven Sofa in their velvet Pacific Blue color and loves how it completes the monochrome look she was going for plus it is super comfortable. Ryann chose their Texada Sofa because she wanted a statement sofa that had an interesting shape but would still blend with many styles. She loves this sofa and how stylish and comfortable it is (and it’s pet friendly!).
If you are looking for a new sofa these are some new styles we love that are also a part of their Presidents Day sale:
A good accent chair can provide additional seating but also add more style and intrigue to a room. This armchair that we used in a couple of makeovers and LOVED is sadly no longer available but speaks to how Article knows how to construct a comfortable and stylish accent chair like no other. Anytime I use their chairs, I am always thrilled with their quality. Here are some new accent chair picks that are currently on sale:
Benches & Ottomans
If you’re looking for an end-of-bed bench or an ottoman, you can’t go wrong here. In Suzanne’s bedroom makeover, we choose their Level Bench to add a sleek, modern flair. I love the U-shaped leg design on the backside and it has just the right amount of tufting. And longtime readers might remember this makeover where we paired this beautiful caramel ottoman with a blue/gray sectional. I wanted to ensure that the sofa had a warmer-toned best friend that was also pet and kid-friendly and this was the perfect fit. I still love the subtle tufting and stitching that swoops down the sides.
Lucky for us, Article has a ton of cool new styles of ottomans/benches on sale:
Article of course makes extremely quality casegoods that provide style and storage. I had the Seno Sideboard in my LA living room since day one and loved it so much. It’s a solid Midcentury Modern piece with a lovely finish and wood grain and oh so timeless. Ryann used the Seno Media Console for her TV stand and it ended up being the perfect low-standing piece to complete her living room. It has storage on both sides and a little open shelf in the middle, and similar to my sideboard, the color and finish look very high-end/expensive.
No matter your style, there’s a casegood for you that will look great in your home. Here are some new styles on sale:
Article has incredible indoor and outdoor tables that we’ve tried and tested for you. To balance the dark, moody walls in her rental dining room, Arlyn used one of Article’s solid oak tables (similar) which has a light, warm wood finish and matched it with oak and leather dining chairs. She loves how the light tone pops against the dark walls and how sturdy it is. On the left, we have Jess’ communal patio where she opted for this round rattan outdoor table that can easily seat six people. It’s somehow both extremely special and unique while also being neutral and so versatile. Arlyn’s table is no longer available but here are some awesome picks (including side tables) that are:
Lighting + Decor
We talk about Article’s furniture a lot but they also have amazing lighting and decor selections. Their sheepskin throw is great to layer over area rugs for a layered, cozy look. I have used it countless times. They also carry awesome lighting like this floor lamp that Sara used in her living room. It’s perfectly modern and sculptural and it adds movement and height.
If you want to browse more decor and lighting, here are some of our favorites:
