The furniture arrives --- September Design House

As we get ready for the September Design House, Amy is taking pictures of the design process to share with you.  Earlier this week, we wrote about our painting stage.  The process of putting a Design House event together takes A TON of talented people and A LOT of hard work.  You're probably used to only seeing the finished rooms completely decorated with great finds, but this time, we wanted to also share the not-so-glamorous preparation side.

Suzanne & Amy are super-psyched for the September Design House.  A new container full of furniture has arrived!!!  The girls have been waiting six months for these goodies, which gave them ample time to dream about how to use the pieces and design the rooms.  The furniture selection this month is wonderful, featuring groupings of both natural finish hardwoods and painted hardwoods.  

We're also really excited about the unique finishes on the September pieces.  Here is one closeup example of a distressed buffet.

Here is more of the preparation phase from our Design Notebook, including the team unloading the long anticipated truckload of new furniture, the inspection process, and then a few pictures of everything lined up and waiting to go in to the Design House. 

I'll post more pictures before the big reveal (on Friday, September 2nd) as the furniture is loaded in the house and the spaces are designed. 


The September Design House will be open Friday, September 2nd through Sunday, September 4th, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.  The Design House is an interior design showcase open on select dates, usually the first weekend of each month.  At the Design House, we bring together the greatest design talents from The Old Lucketts Store who completely remake an entire farmhouse for each event, from lighting to furniture, to paint, and accessories.  For a more detailed description of the Design House, please visit this post.


  1. In the very first picture of this post - the white console table? - How much? ~Rachel

  2. Hi Rachel. I think you're referring to one of the islands in the driveway? I'm not sure if that's too big if you were looking for a console table. The shop is open at 10am tomorrow, so please feel free to call if that still works and you'd like more information.
