Moving is not one of those things I have often done in my life. I’ve moved twice in my 30 years of marriage. I had parents who loved to flip homes but always found it daunting, so when my husband Daniel, fell in love with an “executive” townhouse in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, I was skeptical.
We sold our house in Beaconsfield and set our sights on Ste. Annes, where we could enjoy nature walks and grab the highway in a moment’s notice. Best of city life and country life in one location. Perfect.
Moving means new furniture. From appliances to sofas to beds, we had to do some shopping. While I know what I like, I have little experience buying furniture, so I found myself a little like a fish out of water. What sizes? What shapes? What goes with what? Color? Yikes!
I tried several stores. Mobilia has four worlds of style (Natural, Wow, Spontaneous and Euro) so you can identify which style suits you best and shop accordingly, I also felt the price for quality and style was the best I could find. I mixed in IKEA and Structube, but my primary purchases came from Mobilia. I fell in love with my saleslady Julie who had a ton of patience. I changed my mind several times. Part of Mobilia’s service is that you can purchase things, try them, and return them (at no additional cost) if they don’t fit.
Sadly, our move took place in the pandemic and left us, and the staff at Mobilia challenged and dare I say anxious. I had made my purchases the day the world shut down. I spent the pandemic dreaming of my move and my pretty new acquisitions that would fill the rooms of my future home.
As the city began to open, my order was delivered to my new house. I was happy to see the masked Mobilia delivery personnel at my door one Saturday in June. I wanted to return the carpet I had ordered, I was the first in line when the stores opened to get the charges reversed, and the rug returned.
I dragged the rug to the cash, not knowing they would not accept returns. I asked the masked and gloved staff if I could leave the rug, and we could figure out the return when life got back to normal. Due to new Covid protocol, this was not possible, and I went back home with my rug.
Within hours the company called me to see if they could send someone by to pick up the rug. In this strange time, they were being very cautious and could not accept any returns in store. I was thrilled with the service they offered to rectify the situation.
I flipped flopped on a few items since and changed this and that all with Julie’s help. Please look at the slider to see the lovely pieces I discovered. They have a great sales section where I picked up some great deals, like a leather chair for Dj and lamps for the living room.
