Confession: I'd never been to HD Buttercup. Though I enjoy interiors, my place is packed solid, so I don't furniture window shop much, however I do want a new bed...When I caught wind of the SOMA furniture store's half-yearly sale I rode over and disappeared from reality for about a half-hour.
My style is eclectic and so drifting from modern to pop to contemporary to minimal to macho was pure pleasure. HD Buttercup is a mixmaster's mecca; I was especially transfixed by the modern chandeliers, soft sofas, weathered wood tables, and oversized chairs. The sale kicks off Friday and is through July 10, prices are slashed 20-70%. Here are a couple picks of the litter, and some of the furniture fantasy lands...
