HOME: Our New Living Room with Raymour & Flanigan

DISCLOSURE: I have partnered with Raymour & Flanigan and received product in exchange for this post. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own.

I am SO excited to share our new living room with you all! When we initially purchased our house, it was the room I was most excited to renovate and decorate. In my mind, the living room is the real heart of any home. It was the room where my family spent the most of our time when I was growing up. Everyone gathered on the couch to watch television, play games, or just hang out together. For this reason, it was critical to me to find a comfortable couch that everyone could enjoy.

I knew our search for the perfect couch would begin and end at Raymour & Flanigan. You see, when we moved down from Boston to New Jersey three years ago, we purchased our bedroom set from them and have been so happy with it. The reason why we picked Raymour for the bedroom set was because of their promise to deliver their furniture in three days or less. We had initially ordered a bedroom set elsewhere and it was perpetually on backorder. We needed a bed frame and fast! Another attractive feature of Raymour is that their furniture requires absolutely NO ASSEMBLY. E and I don’t do well when we have to build furniture together. I remember looking at Raymour’s couches when we were selecting a bedroom set, and was very impressed. I knew we would be back eventually!

I started my couch research on the Raymour & Flanigan website. I looked at every single sectional couch they have. They have so many different styles at a variety of price points! After narrowing it down to my top three, I decided to take a trip down to my local Raymour & Flanigan showroom in Watchung, New Jersey. Immediately upon arriving, I was greeted by multiple sales people and the store manager who were VERY eager to help me find my new couch! We wandered around the showroom, jumping from couch to couch, to see which one was most comfortable. The sectional at the top of my list was the Artemis II. I loved the dark grey color, as well as the fact that it came in multiple configurations. After sitting on it for a little while, I knew I had to have E come back with me to the showroom to test it out. While I had a feeling he would love it as much as I did, I didn’t want to make this HUGE life decision without him! Thankfully, when he came back with me, he fell in love with the Artemis II as well. He was impressed with the structure of the couch and the fact that he didn’t sink in too deep while sitting in it. The last thing we wanted was a couch that was too soft that would result in back pain for either of us. We were sold!

While test driving the sectional couches with E, we also took a look at Raymour’s vast rug selection. I instantly fell in love with the Caspian Rug. Regardless of which sectional couch we were going to select, I knew that the Caspian Rug needed to sit underneath it. I loved that it incorporated several different shades of grey. It was going to match our living room PERFECTLY!

We ordered the Artemis II and Caspian Rug that day, and we were able to schedule the delivery for the day after we moved into the new house. It was so easy!

It has been a little over a month since the furniture arrived, and we are OBSESSED with our selections. The Artemis II has lived up to our expectations. It is extremely comfortable while also providing great back support. The Caspian Rug matches the Artemis II perfectly, and goes so nicely with the rest of our decor in the living room. We really couldn’t be happier!

The next time we are in the market for new furniture, we will definitely be going back to Raymour & Flanigan!

Thank you Raymour & Flanigan for partnering on this post.

    I put a lot of decor love into my living room as well. And I’m happy I did because so much time is spent there and people always notice the decor when they come over. I think you did a fab job with your decorating, and I love the wood floors and the light from the windows. I think all you need now is a great piece of art on the wall.

    Your new living room area looks incredible! I love the simplicity of the space, and omg Raymour & Flanigan sound incredible because I hate furniture set-up. It would be amazing to just get a piece that’s already assembled. So cool!
