Ya, I said it. Walmart’s new glam retro home decor line is lit AF. The other night I was scrolling through Pinterest and was served an ad in the feed. Wow, that’s a pretty chair! Wait, wut? Walmart, is that you? Talk about a design double take.
MORE AFTER THE JUMP…
It may sound snobbish, but I normally make this face when I think Walmart.
And I know I’m not alone, but it’s time to suck it up buttercup. Walmart’s home decor department is bangin’.
On Feb 8, they launched their retro glam line MoDRN, and it’s set to compete with the likes of West Elm and CB2…only get this…it’s half the price. Can I get a scream emoji? And yes, it really does look lux. Their Milo Baughman style brass chair is a fraction of the real deal.
Brass? Check! Velvet? Check! Pink? Check! Marble? Check! Channel back? Yep, got that too. Take my word for it, you’re basically going to want everything. Let’s take a closer look.
10 — Modern Office Chair (I also love it in the ivory.)
Now, I haven’t seen the new line in person, so I can’t comment on quality, but fingers crossed they didn’t skimp. The new home decor line has been broken down into nine styles: modern, mid-century, traditional, glam, industrial, bohemian, transitional, Scandinavian, and farmhouse.
Most of you are familiar with People of Walmart, but word on the street is they’ve spent over $18 million dollars to rehab their reputation and threw a couple billion at employee happiness. Looks like Walmart is now committed to changing its customer’s opinion. I’m curious to hear your thoughts on this elevated look. Are you convinced?
