Without furniture, houses would lack a conventional means of expressing their individuality, forcing them to resort to potentially ruinous facial piercings. Help domiciles save face with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of home furnishings at Revival Home in West Hartford.
Revival Home helps customers to reinvigorate rooms with gently used affordable furnishings that often flaunt designer nametags such as Baker and Ralph Lauren. Furniture couturiers can trick out their couches with pillows ($25) or add an elegant touch to secret snack caves with antique silver flatware by Sheffield ($100 per set), Wedgwood china plates, cups, and saucers ($50), or Kate Spade stemware ($50). Decorative blue-and-white porcelain vases ($50) give floral bouquets a fetching resting place and double as aesthetically pleasing projectiles during fits of pique. Because Revival Home relies on consignment goods, its stock rotates daily, thereby saving great sofas and armoires from having to fraternize with seagulls at the local landfill.
Revival Home helps customers invigorate rooms with vintage furniture items and gently used designer pieces by Baker, Ralph Lauren, and Kate Spade. Owner Arlene opened Revival Home in the summer of 2009 during an economic recession in hopes of equipping shoppers with high-quality homewares for reasonable prices. Using her background in art direction, she hand selects each item from estate sales in the Hamptons to populate her recently renovated 10,000-square-foot show room with antique flatware, china sets, and ottomans. Because Revival Home relies on consignment goods, its stock rotates daily, providing shoppers with new antique lamps to check for genies on each visit.
