Anyone who appreciates high-end furniture knows it signifies craftsmanship, innovative design, luxurious fabrics and materials, as well as bespoke finishes.

To sum it up in six words:

“You get what you pay for.”

But at Consign Home Couture in Westlake, you’ll find much more than you pay for. The upscale consignment boutique offers the best lines of furniture and luxurious home décor.

“We have a knack for connecting with the right group of people in the Cleveland area who share an affection and appreciation for beautifully crafted furniture,” says owner Susan Brown.

She reports most of their stunning pieces come in from people who are moving, whether it’s downsizing or just making a change to a new home that the furniture won’t work in. And sometimes people simply want to refresh their homes, so they consign their existing furniture and pick out something different as soon as their piece sells.

They’ve Got That
Room vignettes span an eclectic variety of tastes throughout the more than 6,500 square feet of showroom—vintage, traditional, transitional, French country rustic, farmhouse chic, contemporary and global fusion. Look for soaring display walls of artwork that include artist-signed pieces and mirrors galore, and a glamorous collection of lighting fixtures, from chandeliers to floor lamps and table lamps.

Anyone who adores poring over catalogs such as Pottery Barn, Arhaus, Ethan Allen, Williams-Sonoma and Restoration Hardware will find those pieces here.

And devotees of the best furniture in the world, showcased at the mecca of High Point, North Carolina, will bask in a variety of Drexel Heritage, Maitland-Smith, Henredon, Bernhardt and Thomasville pieces.

It’s All in the Details
For most of us, it’s easy to get lost in the day-to-day machinations, and forget to stop and take a good look around our abode. Does every room make you happy?

In addition to furniture—sofas, sectionals, chairs, barstools, tables, sideboards and bedroom sets—Consign Home Couture offers all the sophisticated accent pieces for you to put your stamp on your home, from pillows to vases, sculptures, lamps, cocktail sets, candlesticks, collectibles and show plants.

For seasoned travelers, globally infused items such as African masks and Asian calligraphy paintings add interest to any room.

And with so many homeowners opting for hard flooring surfaces nowadays, rugs are in high demand.

Says Susan, “We offer every style, from Persian to Oriental, flat woven to deep plush, in silk, wool, cotton and sisal. And whatever size you’re looking for, from bigger full room sizes to runners and doorway rugs, we’ve got a nice selection.”

To-Die-For Handbags and Bling
Consign Home Couture’s handbag and jewelry department features best-in-show bling, from dazzling pendants to trendy drop earrings, bold cuff and delicate chain bracelets and show-stopping cocktail rings from lines like Silpada, Judith Ripka Fine Jewelry and Brighton Collectibles, just to name a few.

And no matter the season, you’ll find the perfect handbag, whether you prefer roomy and slouchy, or sleek and modern, for every occasion, workouts, everyday and evening, in all the hottest names, like Prada, Kate Spade, Michael Kors and Coach, among others.
