The Sauder Experience: Research + Assembly

These days, I don’t take furniture purchases lightly. With our home on the market and an imminent move in our future, I don’t see the point in buying new pieces that I will one day loath lugging to the new house. So, I’m tending towards second guessing most purchases and I try to really consider whether or not they fit in with our style and space. Two pieces that made the cut, though? Our new Sauder occasional chair and sofa table.

I’ve chatted about Sauder in the past and am genuinely impressed with both the price points and trend factor of this brand. As a die hard mid-century modern, thrifting fanatic, I tend to turn my nose up at newly produced furniture. That said, ever since learning about Sauder and researching their collections, I can’t help but feel intrigued. This was my first time really seeing and FEELING what the company has to offer, and I have to say that I’m a bit of a new-furniture convert.

The selection and order process was a total cinch, which when you’ve got ten million things going on in a single hour (I know ALL of you can relate) is highly appreciated. I knew exactly what I had room for in our home and was pleasantly surprised to see that you could search for furniture pieces by product. There was a little corner in my studio just begging for a chair, so I made sure to scan through their seating selection. And our entry way was feeling a little threadbare, so I took a look through their table line as well. With my cart full and my budget happy (I snagged both for less than $250!), I confirmed my order and waited for the boxes to arrive.

As you can see, putting our pair of pieces together was very straightforward. Our household is certainly no stranger to the idea of “assembly required” furniture, so we had no trouble putting the chair and table together in under 30 minutes, but I knew Plan B would have just been a quick call to customer service (I hear they have quite the stellar reputation!). With the pieces put together without incident, I moved on to my favorite part—the styling.

Our new occasional chair is now happily serving its purpose (and then some, as demonstrated by Luna’s perch) in the studio. It’s a family favorite for relaxing in the afternoons and has already made it into more than a couple of impromptu photo shoots. The retro/mod styling of the chair definitely feels unique and not quite so “Big Box.” It looks just a little more “One of a Kind” to me.

As for the sofa table? It has been a lifesaver in our entryway hallway these past couple of weeks, corralling pretty accessories, yes, but also things like our keys and mail. I don’t know how we lived without it for so long, and that’s the honest to goodness truth.

Stay tuned later this season when I share two more ways (each!) to style my new Sauder picks, plus more on how we’re making this home work for us in the final months of us living here!
