My Statement Sofa with Move Loot
As you know I typically find myself knee deep in approximately 137 projects at the same time at which I inevitably decide to toss in something else. Well, it happened again and I’ve added my living room to the ever growing list of to do’s. My living room doesn’t need a huge overhaul but I decided I couldn’t live with the giant chocolate brown sofa one more minute. You can see the before pictures on my home tour which will be updated soon!
Luckily around the same time I decided to tackle this project I discovered, Move Loot, a new, national company that has a location here in Charlotte. Move Loot is an online marketplace for new and gently used furniture pieces and home decor and they just happened to have the perfect statement sofa to jump start my living room update.
At Move Loot you can buy beautiful pieces for your home as well as sell your own items to make a little extra cash to fund your next decorating project. They carry a wide ranges of price points including designer pieces but my favorite thing about them is the uniqueness of the pieces in their collection. You can find anything from mid century modern dressers to faux bamboo dining sets to gourd lamps and more.
When you are on their site you can shop by category or collection and it’s a very user friendly experience. They have quality images of their products as well as a detailed description of the item’s condition. It is evident they carefully curate what goes into their inventory and stand behind the condition 100%. If you have a piece delivered and you aren’t happy with the product or condition you can send it back on the spot.
This is not your ordinary online consignment outfit, this a topnotch, all I’s dotted and T’s crossed kind of business and I was thrilled when I discovered it! For people who love to change out their decor as often as I do Move Loot is a great source. I browse their site now at least once a week knowing I’ll find the piece I’m looking for at a great price.
After deciding on the sofa, I scheduled the delivery on a Tuesday morning for a time slot between 9am-10am and the Move Loot truck arrived at 8:55am. I don’t know about you but I’ve never heard of a delivery service being early. I also received an email the day before confirming the delivery time and a call when they were 30 minutes from arrival.
The delivery was flawless and I didn’t have to lift a finger. They carried the sofa from the truck and carefully unwrapped it and set it exactly where I needed it to go. The crew was extremely pleasant and professional even while my son was asking them a million questions.
When the sofa was unveiled I was over the moon with the style and quality and it was in perfect condition. It has a very high-end look with the tufting and rolled pillows and paired with my chic coffee table (find the tutorial here) I really feel like this is a grown up space now.
The crushed velvet-like fabric gives the sofa a luxurious feel and it is the perfect shade of gray! I was worried the sofa would be too dark – I really wanted a white sofa but luckily the practical part of my brain kicked in – but I couldn’t be happier.
Here are a few of the items in their Charlotte inventory that I’ve got my eye on right now! I love this designer chair and the white sideboard would go perfectly in my dining room!
For any purchase over $100 Move Loot will deliver it to your front door for free! They handle all of the pick-up, cleaning, photography, storage, listing and delivery of the pieces and can usually schedule 24 hours after your purchase. It truly is an easy buying experience and I can’t wait to sell something too.
Move Loot is growing like crazy and just opened a location in New York and LA so make sure to check out their website to see if they are in or near your city! For us East coast dwellers they also have locations in Raleigh and Atlanta. Be sure to check out their Instagram feed as well because you can see lots of their pieces being used in real spaces as well as daily design inspiration. It also doesn’t hurt that they were founded by graduates from my alma mater, GO TARHEELS!
