One of my favorite stores to shop for furniture, gifts and home decor opened it’s doors in NYC this month, and I was lucky enough to attend the World Market Grand Opening NYC event! Me and several other bloggers and editors were able to sneak a peek at the brand new store in advance of the official opening. Not gonna lie, it made me feel pretty special!

I absolutely love World Market and their products, so I was thrilled to be invited to a sneak preview event and given the opportunity to shop! The NYC store is a little different than the typical Cost Plus World Market you might visit elsewhere. They have plenty of items to purchase and carry but much of the store is set up almost like a showroom, where you can see their larger furniture items and they will order and deliver them to you. They even have some exclusive product lines like some one-of-a-kind pottery and rugs! Trés chic!

World Market graciously gifted a few select bloggers with a generous gift card, including yours truly.  And boy, was I excited to shop! Deciding what to purchase was tough. I’m not much of an impulse buyer but I wanted to take advantage of their generous gift, as well as the in-store discount they were offering that week!

 Here’s a little collage of some of my favorite items that I considered snagging with my gift card:

Pacific Blue Elliott Wingback Chair • $329.99  |  Mason Jar Ceramic Measuring Spoons • $4.99   |  Gold Stemless Wine Glasses, Set of 4 • $23.96   |  Large Capiz Lotus Hanging Pendant Lantern • $119.99   |  Silver Metal Sun Round Mirror • $139.99   |  Mason Jar Ceramic Utensil Crock • $9.99
White Baroque Salad Plates, Set of 4 • $23.96   |  Folding Cheese Board Tool Set • $39.99   |  Cala Hammered Coffee Table • $299.99   |  Eden Table • $69.99   |  Blue Honeysuckle Bouquet Glass Hobnail Jar Candle • $14.99

If you’re a World Market fanatic like me, you may want to include some of their products on your bridal registry. Though they don’t have an official wedding registry, I would totally recommend using a universal registry option to add products from their online store to your wish list.


In the end, I decided I wanted to use my gift card towards the purchase of a custom upholstered headboard. At the age of 31, I’ve been lusting over a swoon-worthy upholstered headboard for nearly a decade. Since E and I moved to NYC we’d never gotten around to getting a headboard for our simple bed frame, so I am absolutely thrilled to finally get the headboard of my dreams!

World Market has a variety of styles of headboards to choose from that come in an array of fabrics. Everything from linen, to patterned cottons, to sultry velvet. I spotted this pretty Velvet Kellerman Upholstered Headboard in the showroom (in my favorite color, no less) and I absolutely loved the style!

I decided to purchase it in charcoal grey velvet since it’s a great neutral that we can pair with many different colors as our bedding changes over the years. I absolutely can’t wait to get it in! Since it’s a more custom piece it will likely take a couple weeks for it to arrive. Be sure to follow my personal instagram account where I’ll be sure to share a pic once it comes in!

The gift card obviously didn’t cover the whole headboard, so it was a definite splurge for us. At 6+ years married and a collection of home goods that we’re generally happy with, this was the right choice for us at this time in our lives!

I almost forgot to add — Kelly Osbourne was there! She is a big fan of World Market so she attended the grand opening. She was such a doll and she even complimented my earrings so that was a nice little confidence booster, since she was one of the Fashion Police!!
