AS COSTCO’S FURNITURE buyer, I don’t
select furniture for our members that
I wouldn’t want in my own home.
So you might be interested to know
that I bought the Lulea Cove
Storage Bedroom Group by
Universal Furniture (available in
select warehouses now) for my
bedroom. It’s among the best-quality sets you can find.
Comparable options sold elsewhere
are priced at least 40 percent more.
Each piece (even the bed
frame) has lots of storage to keep
your bedroom neat and organized.
The nightstand even has concealable USB ports and plugs to manage cord clutter. Most drawers in
this set are lined with cedar, a natural
moth repellent, and are constructed
using quality English dovetail joints.
All decorative hardware is made of solid
metal, and the assembly hardware on
the beds is made of stainless steel.
The whole set has fully finished back
panels constructed of hardwood, medium-density fiberboard and particleboard. The
cherry finish can be incorporated into a
wide range of décor.
One of my favorite features is that
the nightstand, media console, dresser
and lingerie chest all come preassembled. The platform bed frame (available
in queen, king and California king in
some locations) can be ready to go in a
few easy steps.
If you’re looking for bedroom furniture, consider these space-saving pieces.
You’ll find that they’re long-lasting staples
in your home, as they are in mine. C
Nursery room contest winners
DO YOU HAVE a well-designed nursery? That’s what we asked Connection
readers in the January issue, in the Cutest Nursery Photo Contest. What we
discovered is that not only are many of our readers new parents, but when
it comes to designing a sanctuary for their tiniest family member, they are
very creative as well.
Of the more than 100 entries received, a first-, second- and third-place
winner was selected, as well as three honorable mentions. Entries were
chosen based on creativity, presentation and cohesiveness of design, and
the winners received Costco Cash cards worth $500 (first place), $200 (
second place), $100 (third place) or $25 (honorable mentions).—T. Foster Jones

“CANYON COLT’S CORRAL” was inspired
by my husband’s late grandfather, who was a
volunteer sheriff in El Centro, California, from
1940 to 1960.
The nursery is the perfect place for our
son, Canyon Colt Eddy, to grow through the
years. The nursery includes antique lanterns,
canteens, horseshoes, lassos, cowhide, cowboy
hats, wooden rocking chairs, a
saddle, steer horns and more. The
barn doors behind the crib were
designed by Canyon’s father, Dan,
using reclaimed wood from a
The saddle was placed strategically in the corner for all kids to ride on and
enjoy. A reading corner has two wooden rocking chairs placed upon cowhide for a warm
and comfortable setting. An old tack barrel
serves as an accent coffee table; storage bins
made from chicken wire hold books. An old
buffalo burlap pillow was embroidered with
Canyon’s name, and hand-picked fabric was
chosen to create a special quilt, sewn by a dear
family friend, as a way to welcome Canyon
Colt into the world.—Ursula Eddy
