Magnolia Home Line In Person

8.11.2016

I know that lots of folks are huge fans of the Fixer Upper show on HGTV and I admittedly am one. We just ooh and ahh when we see the finished house and the way that Joanna Gaines has styled the rooms. She has a particular look and has now come out with her own home line. I have been wanting to see it in person so hubby, Miss Bailey and I went on a little trip up the road not just to check out this line, but to combine it with a visit at the salvage place I like to shop in NC. I didn't find anything at the salvage place, but the Eller and Owens Furniture store was just up the road from the salvage place and they carry the Magnolia Home line. While Mr. Savvy and Bailey waited in the car I went in to check it out. I asked them if I could take photos to share and they said, sure.

This bench was my favorite piece.

Of course there was shiplap.

















This sofa is shaped like the sofa in the next photo from their show.



Coffee table with a scalloped edge that I have seen her do on other pieces.

This bed is similar to Chip and Joanna's own bed in the next photo.



And it favors this one from the brick cottage for the Baylor grads.

When I asked about the bedding they said it is by another company and not Joanna's.











These chairs from this show are similar to her chairs below.





I wonder if in next season's shows she will decorate the homes with her line mixed with other pieces?

There were some cute pieces.
 See anything you liked?

    2. I wanted to purchase a decor piece online and was extremely disappointed that it was made in China. You would think since they are so into family and Texas, they would source local or at least US pieces.

    3. are you sure? I thought it was made by Standard who makes their furniture in Alabama? this is interesting. I'll look into it again.

    4. Seems everything is outsourced these days. Ethan Allen's furniture used to all be from USA and now only the wood products are.

  4. I wonder, are the pieces made in America?? Just wondering....

    1. Are you sure? I think the pieces on the show so far are not from her new line that just came out.

    2. A lot of the furniture in Season 3 is from her line. When you go back and look, it's amazing. Maybe more towards the end of the season. But I found her furniture in a lot of houses.

  6. Do you know if the area rugs are part of her line? I especially like the one in the first photo.

    1. Julie, no, I don't know. I went to these pieces by myself and just took the pictures while my husband and dog waited in the car so I was in a hurry.

  8. I loved the hutches. (especially the one with barn door design) I also liked the table with the window pane mirror. Would be great in an Entryway, I think. Gina

  9. I did the same thing you did here in Baton Rouge, La. When I got there I likeed some of her stuff, but wasn't overly impressed. I did however see some other pieces I really like! It was nice still to go see what Joanna had come out with. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the show. Going to Magnolia Market next week.

    1. Yes, I wasn't impressed either with the quality. I'm getting picky with what I buy these days.

  10. I have always wanted to go into that furniture store when I am up that way. Looks like an affordable line with some nice pieces. Im sure you probably felt rushed leave mr savvy and bailey in the car...that's why i don't even bother shopping with my crew.

  11. I think I saw where there's a store in my area that sells their line of furniture. I don't suppose you looked at and remembered the price of that fabulous buffet and hutch with the barn doors? LOL!

  12. I can't imagine anybody who would purchase this stuff. Just because her name is on it doesn't make it good quality, value or stylish. She said she put this line together in 100 days. She is not a furniture designer by skill. I think she just put some detail flicks on what the manufacturer had already made in their archives to get it to High Point market quickly. I don't think these styles have enduring properties and will be junk in a couple years. I am a furniture designer with my own line so I know what I am talking about. I know what it takes to put out a fabulous quality product that is lasting. I do LOVE their show, however. The furniture line was a spin off to monitize the show.

  13. Kim, I haven't watched HGTV in a long time, but I know everyone loves the show. I am like you when it come to quality, but the price tags I could see didn't look cheap for a less than quality. At least, you got to look at her line up close! Thanks for sharing, Pam @ Everyday Living

  14. Thanks for sharing Kim! I LOOVVVEE the show and had the opportunity to visit Magnolia Market at The Silos when I went out to TX in May. I bought a few things but not a lot - it was so cool to be in the place I had caught glimpses of on the show. I will have to check out some of their pieces here in Orlando!

  15. Extremely disappointed by the quality. I expected more from them. Having said that, if breaks with money would happen more things would say Made in the USA. Not getting political at all just my personal opinion.

    I have been waiting for her to come up with a line. Didn't make me smile after drooling over some the photos. Happy you let us know

  16. All such beautiful pieces but I especially love that turquoise chair. What a fun place to go. Looks like you had a blast

  17. I like the stripe on that first piece. I have an antique canapé like that--it's the real deal--and it needs to be redone. I am practically paralyzed by the choices. But I do like this one.

  18. I ordered from her Farmhouse collection simply because I couldn't find anything similar, I hope I will not be disappointed when it arrives. Everywhere I've looked says that they carry the furniture but don't have any yet so it was interesting to hear that you actually saw some of the pieces. I just happened to be in Dallas recently and drove down to Waco to see "The Silos." It just wasn't as large as I had imagined. Half of her store wasn't even air conditioned. Maybe my expectations were unrealistic.

    1. I'm surprised the silos wasn't that big. No air in half of it in Texas? Wow!

  19. A store in my area just started carrying the furniture and I was disappointed. I was actually shopping for new family room pieces so I was ready to buy. The 'white' sofa has a yellowish cast. Quality was mixed, as others have written. Plus all pieces have to be custom made, you can't buy off the floor. I agree that the line was rushed into production. The store here said the furniture is made by a company in Alabama, although it sounds like it's outsourced overseas. Prices were mid-range, comparable to Ashley. I liked the show for the first couple of seasons but I'm afraid I'm burned out. Next up is a new magazine this October. Too bad the HGTV magazine isn't able to keep star designers. I still miss Sarah Richardson who always brings fresh style to her rooms.

  20. I stopped by the store in my area that is handling the line and was disappointed in the quality. Seemed to be cheaply made and not what you would expect after watching the show.

    1. Yes, it wasn't very good and hearing that a lot from those who have seen it.

  21. Enjoyed the photos, but seems like you're buying her name - not quality. Magnolia Farms website didn't bowl me over either. Funny thing is that I DO like her show a lot!

  22. What fun that you got to see the pieces in person. I guess I am not the only one who heard the quality wasn't that great though! Oh well, everything is still pretty!

  23. I like the console with the mirror (photo 3), the white hutch with the metal hardware, and a couple of the white headboards. The furniture is all on the plain side, but is her knack with accessories that brings everything to life!

  24. I love watching the show but perhaps thy have gotten a bit too big? I think my view of them may change after reading your review as I see them continuing to monetize their popularity with such abandon. Good for them that their house is probably paid off and the kids' college funds are overflowing, but they may have lost whatever it was they had that we loved. It's a shame they sacrificed quality and workmanship and keeping the work in the USA just to move out a product quickly. The prices on the tags-the ones I could make out-seemed high and from the pics I am not impressed. I liked them better before they sold their souls. Oh well, it was bound to happen.

    1. I agree
      . People are losing their individuality when it comes to home decorating of late. Everything seems to be Magnolia . If I see one more stem of cotton balls on a stem in a vase or wreath I am going to scream.
      There is so much more quality out there!

  25. I too, am underwhelmed by her line. I don't think the pieces have all that much personality. I was expecting a lot more, especially with those prices. I think they might be overdoing the cashing in while they're hot thing. I'm afraid they're going to lose their luster. I live about 90 minutes from Round Top. I think I'll save my money and keep shopping there for the real thing!

  26. Was the furniture made of real wood? If so, the prices will be higher. From your photos, the quality looks better than IKEA! Oh, and I still love their show and what Chip and Johanna stand for! 👆

    1. I agree. Love their show, love them and what they stand for. I still think they are the best thing on HGTV. I can say as a business owner myself that businesses in the U.S. are taxed and regulated to DEATH so I see why they may have gone overseas.

  27. How neat to get to see this furniture in person! I'm excited about their new shows coming back on. It has been so long.

  28. Very interesting, Kim. I do enjoy watching the show, but disappointing that the furniture is not made in the U.S. Of course, I don't know how much of the furniture folks buy IS made in this country--maybe not much. I don't approve, however. And not being able to really tell the quality of the pieces from the photos I don't know if it is worth the, to me, very high prices I saw in the one image. Of course, most new furniture is not within my budget!

    There was one white armoire that I really liked and the white couch, and the one lamp with the green trim on the shade. Also, the white planked headboard. Most all the other pieces weren't real draws for me. Not sure what to make of the whole line, also the comment from "swedecollection". Is that just sour grapes?
