I found out recently about a new store that just opened up here in Birmingham in the last few months, called I.O. Metro. Had never heard of it, but it’s a bounty of eye candy, so take a peek at all the offerings in this very fresh and unique store. Headquartered in Bentonville, AR, I wondered if they were affiliated with Walmart (not that they looked remotely like Walmart, but how many companies come out of Bentonville AR?), and he assured me they were not. I just checked locations and they are in Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. How about that? So, if you live in one of those states, you may very well want to check them out. I was very pleased with what I saw, even though I’m more traditional, I just love the fresh fabrics they were using and some of the furniture styles were so pretty.
They even had fabrics by the yard for $9.95/yard and some super looking ones to choose from.
Accessories were VERY large and unique. You wouldn’t need a lot of these to make a statement.
Lots of lime green, which I always love!
Great looking slipcovers too for parson’s chairs.
Loved this linen dining chair for $199, great styling and fabric.
Hope you get a chance to check out an I.O. Metro store too! I think you’ll enjoy it.
What a fun store! Bummer that it's about 2 hours from me.
mmmmm green is so delicious
AHHHHH!!! Do you not LOVE this store??!! I have the Cream/Tan Zebra Chaise Lounge in my living room & it is to die for!! My Mother recently purchased many pieces of art for her new house from this store, also & they are all amazing!!!
P.S. I also wanted to 2nd Cheri (who happens to live here locally) & say 'Woo-Hoo' for AR having something other than WM & the HOGS! (Which both I love, also 🙂

Whenever I am homesick for B'ham I come to your blog to get my "Southern fix"…we moved to TX about a year and a half ago (it's NOT the south…or the south I am used to)
I left you a message when you posted about The Club(we were members) and you posted at my old blog. Thanks 🙂
My new blog is…
Visit me sometime and thanks for your wonderful blog, and keeping me in the loop about my hometown!

We have 2 I.O. Metros here in our town…and while I love the style, I would NEVER pay their prices. They are known for being OUTRAGEOUS in their prices!! I like to hit up yard sales that advertise I.O. stuff though =)
Large oversacale accessories are my favorite way to decorate.
Thanks for letting us B'ham folks
know about a new store. That is
awesome. No better advertising
then one blogger!
What a fun looking store. I love some of those chairs. None in my area though. =(
