Many years ago, when my wife and I purchased our first set of furniture for the first apartment we would share as a couple, we spent days driving to every furniture store we could find around Pittsburgh. In one store, we found a sofa that we liked. In another store, we found a coffee table. Here we would find a lamp, and there we found a bookcase. I was satisfied, knowing that I got the pieces that I liked the most of what was available.
Several weeks ago, I decided to do something special for our anniversary. We haven’t had a bed since we moved into our house, almost nine years ago. Oh, we have a mattress and box spring, but they are just sitting on a frame. We don’t even have a headboard. I decided I wanted a canopy bed constructed of bamboo. So, I did a Google search, and sure enough, I found Bali Bamboo Creations. They have a really nice selection of bamboo beds with a variety of finishes. Each one is handmade to order for a reasonable price, including shipping to anywhere in the world.
I ordered the Ubud bed with two Belaga nightstands. After a couple weeks, I was emailed photographs of the finished furniture for my approval. It was all delivered today. I haven’t assembled the bed yet, but the pieces I’ve seen are beautiful, and the nightstands are well crafted.
You don’t have to settle for the commonplace items found in the showrooms anymore. I only buy what I love.
