The Sauder Experience & My Dining Room



Hi guys! Today is a fun day for me. I get to share a really great product from a really great company with y'all. I love furniture! I read furniture catalogs like they're magazines and I keep old copies with dog-eared pages for years. It's the interior designer in me, I guess. So, of course I JUMPED at the chance to partner with Sauder, North America's leading producer of ready-to-assemble furniture and the nation's fifth-largest residential furniture manufacturer.

Sauder has an unbelievable selection of quality furniture pieces in a wide variety of styles, so it was difficult to narrow down my favorites. You can take advantage of Expedition Design on the Sauder website if you need help coordinating pieces to achieve your desired style. Not even sure what your style is? Click on the "Style Lab" tab and take the quiz to find your furniture style. That will give you an awesome jumping off point. The website is easy to navigate and the ordering process was simple.

I was drawn to the pretty "Rainwater" blue X-Back Dining Chairs, The dining set we bought years ago came with six gigantic chairs. In a larger house they would probably look awesome, but they are almost comically oversized in our tiny dining room. When people are sitting at the table it is nearly impossible to maneuver around them. Sauder's X-Back Chairs seemed like a much better scale for the space. I also LOVE that pale turquoise color, and have been wanting to bring a little more of it into the dining room and kitchen.



The furniture arrived quickly after I ordered it and I was really impressed with the care they took in packaging it to avoid damage in transit. {pic.1} Everything I needed to assemble the furniture was right in the box {pic.2}-- no missing parts -- and the instructions were really clear and easy to follow. {pic. 3}



Within an hour I had a new set of dining chairs that were, by some miracle, an almost exact match to the color of my coffee table. Since the dining room and living room are open to one another I knew these chairs would help to tie the rooms together perfectly!

I gave you a sneak peek at the start of the post, but here are a few more photos of the finished dining room:





The chairs have a much lower profile than our old ones which really helps the space to feel wide open and airy. We only ordered 4 chairs, thinking that maybe we could mix in a couple of our old ones on the ends of the table, but I like these new chairs so much we're going to have to order another set. When I saw how open the room was with these new chairs, I couldn't bear to bring any of the big old ones back in.



With the tall old chairs removed, we have an unobstructed view out the front window from the living room, which I love. I'm super impressed with the quality of my new chairs. They are heavy for their size and really sturdy -- two hallmarks of a good dining chair. I couldn't be happier with my Sauder Experience!

In the next little while I'll be showing you a couple of other ways you could use these chairs to decorate your home in some unexpected ways. You won't want to miss it!

Have a great day, friends!
