As I have previously mentioned I am a terrible decision maker when it comes to choosing furniture. Its not because I don't like anything its because I like too many things. Most people stick to a theme for their interior decorating, I find this really difficult mostly because I like many different styles. Being in my 20 somethings... I think I'm still finding the right style for me and my family. However that being said I made a purchase and I'm very happy. So far so good.
A new online furniture store has popped up called Max Sparrow. His furniture pieces echo American style including the increasingly popular Hampton's look.
Shopping at Max Sparrow was a different online shopping experience. Firstly it is a lot cheaper then shopping in furniture stores in Sydney, Secondly you purchase within a timeframe in order for the furniture to arrive within the 8-10 week period. For someone like me that was a good thing because I had to make a decision quick. So I can almost hear you asking "what do you mean, you have to purchase within a time frame?". When I first logged onto the website I noticed a count down at the top of the screen, initially saying 5 days to go. I wondered what this was myself until I read what Max Sparrow was all about. To keep costs down Max Sparrow compiles a bulk order to save on warehouse storage of excess items. therefore only items paid for will be ordered and made thus eliminating excess stock. I'm not sure how many days are in the window of opportunity to purchase but if you order in that window of opportunity you should have your item within 8-12 weeks. This method is called "Group Order" and you can read more about it on the website.The longer lead time is the only downside I can see so far as its hard not to get excited about your purchase only to have to wait a reasonable long time to receive it, but for the cost saving I'm ok with it! The last thing I would like to touch on is how easy the website is to use and make my purchase. A clear step by step check out process eliminates any difficulty in understanding what point of check out you are at.
All of those annoying logistics out of the way I am rather impressed with the selection of goods. I could have bought more, but I showed some self restraint and thought I would start with one piece.
There is also the option to purchase a package which may include a sofa, coffee table and chair these vary according to price and number of items within the package.
Looking through the furniture for sale on the website, it struck me why I liked it so much, the items are timeless pieces that wont date with trends or fads. These pieces are classic, if thats your style or not its difficult to say that these pieces are unattractive. Classic timeless pieces are never in or out of fashion they seem to glide through trends in an ethereal state remaining always beautiful.
Here is the item I purchased The Montgomery Side Table. At $355 + $80 delivery I was really impressed. This item is going to go next to the sofa.
W559 x D711 x H711mm
