    Trying to determine if it would make sense to consider ordering from both BY and H&M. We are going to order a stationary H&M couch and the only reason we would order a reclining sofa from BY instead of H&M would be to save some money.

    Would the total delivery cost be less with one larger H&M order versus 2 individual deliveries from H&M and BY?

    By the way...we have removed the wallpaper and are in the process of picking new paint colors and removing the chandelier (looking for a ceiling fan to replace it with). Also...while I was resistant to putting a TV stand over the fireplace...I purchased a Mantle mount and will be getting that up after we paint. So thank you for that tip Duane.

    Every Shipment from a supplier is a separate transaction, you can't really combine ships from two makers to one location unless you are willing to pay warehousing fees because one order will lag behind the other. The savings is small, I wouldn't buy one or the other based on shipping savings, personally.

    I view all recliners as disposable, be it a single seat unit or a sofa. They are cover, foam and frame built around a mechanism and lack the artistry and style of stationary pieces, and usually don't last as long. While the 200 series from BY and the YourWay2 from H&M are built on the same frame and mechanisms, you WILL see a difference in foaming and tailoring from H&M to BY. You may not be happy with the BY once the H&M is in the room for that reason. If they are going in separate rooms and not next to one another, then that difference is moot.

    Room looks better already - keep at it!

    So updating this post as our Living Room has undergone a significant face lift...and received it's first piece of H&M...an Authors Chair and Ottoman in Weston Cane Burnished and this chair is spectacular and the smell is intoxicating!!

    Looking at getting carpet to cover most of the room but leave 2-3 feet on the edges. Likely be either a light green carpet or a beige...not sold either way yet.

    Will be looking for two more pieces including a sofa (likely Y87) and probably a recliner but still thinking that through.

    Would a Hyde Park Earth or Cameo luggage piece clash with the Weston Cane? and how does Hyde Park and Cameo hands compare to the Weston Cane?

    Should the details between all the pieces match in regards to nail head and wood finish?

    You room is looking much better! The hardwood floors are beautiful, I would not put a carpet in that room. If you feel you need a small one to control noise echo, try to aim for a smaller one that covers not more than 1/3 the floor and don't use green - you have enough green on the back wall.

    Earth tones never clash, so you are good using anything in that category. Minor color shade variances should not make any difference. HP and Cameo will have the same hand and texture as the Weston Cane Burnished on the new Author chair. Nails and wood finish don't have to match in my world, not at all.
