Amazon‘s at it again! On Wednesday, October 31, the online shopping Goliath launched another furniture brand called Ravenna Home. The line is filled with affordable pieces that are classic in silhouette and color, and sure to fit into almost any decorating scheme.

And to top it all off, you get free shipping and free returns within 30 days! We’ve got to admit, that’s a pretty sweet deal for large pieces of furniture; usually the shipping costs are a big consideration on whether or not we decide we’re going to buy something. And what’s more, because the line is so affordable and classic, they’re perfect pieces for your registry! Whether you’re on the hunt for a new headboard or a cozy new couch for your Sunday Netflix binges, Ravenna home (and Amazon, obviously) have you covered. We perused the new line, and it was hard to not do a little shopping of our own! Here are a few of our favorite pieces to add to your registry (or just buy right now!).

him/her; (iii) fails to return the Affidavit and Release as specified in Rule 9; (iv) refuses the prize;

and/or (v) the prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, such potential winner forfeits all

releases and disclaimers, and, at Sponsor’s discretion, successful completion of a background check,

transferable or redeemable for cash. No substitutions for prize except by Sponsor, in which case a prize

of equal or greater value will be substituted.

9. CONSENT AND RELEASE. By entering the Promotion, each entrant releases and discharges

the Sponsor, Brides Magazine, judging organization (if applicable), and any other party associated with

the development or administration of this Promotion, their parent, subsidiary, and affiliated entities, and

each of their respective officers, directors, members, shareholders, employees, independent contractors,

liability with respect to participation in such travel/activities and/or use of the prize. Fully-executed

affidavits and releases must be received by Sponsor within five (5) days from the date that Sponsor first

tries to notify the potential winner. Sponsor may conduct a background check to confirm any potential

winner’s eligibility and compliance with these rules. By entering, you agree to cooperate reasonably

with any such background check. If the prize includes participation in any public event(s) or publicity,

or if Sponsor Entities intend to publicize the winner in any way, and if a background check reveals that

a potential winner has engaged in conduct that could damage the reputation or business of any Sponsor

Entity, as determined by Sponsor in its discretion, the potential winner may be disqualified and the

prize may be awarded to an alternate winner. If winner is deemed to be a minor under the jurisdiction

of his/her residence, the prize will be awarded in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian who must

execute the necessary affidavit and release and, if applicable, must accompany winner on the trip (no

additional travel expenses will be awarded should a parent or legal guardian be required to accompany

the winner on the trip).

10. DISCLAIMERS. (i) Sponsor not responsible for entries that are lost, late, misdirected,

incorrect, garbled, or incompletely received, for any reason, including by reason of hardware, software,

browser, or network failure, malfunction, congestion, or incompatibility at Sponsor’s servers or

elsewhere. In the event of a dispute, entries will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder

of the Instagram account submitted at the time of entry. “Authorized account holder” of the Instagram

account is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an Instagram account by Instagram. (ii)

Sponsor, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to disqualify any person tampering with the entry

process or the operation of the web site or otherwise attempting to undermine the legitimate operation

of the Promotion. Use of bots or other automated process to enter is prohibited and may result in

disqualification at the sole discretion of Sponsor. (iii) Sponsor further reserves the right to cancel,

fulfillment of this Promotion, including without limitation mechanical, human, printing, distribution or

production errors, and may cancel, terminate or modify this Promotion based upon such error at its sole

discretion without liability. In no event will Sponsor be responsible for awarding more than the number

of prizes specified in these rules. (v) In the event this Promotion is cancelled or terminated, pursuant to

subparagraph (iii) or (iv), Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from

among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered

herein. (vi) SPONSOR ENTITIES MAKE NO WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS OR

GUARANTEES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN FACT OR IN LAW, AS REGARDS THIS

PROMOTION OR THE MERCHANTABILITY, QUALITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR

PURPOSE REGARDING ANY PRIZE OR ANY COMPONENT OF ANY PRIZE. (vii) CAUTION:

ANY ATTEMPT BY AN ENTRANT TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE THE WEBSITE OR

UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THIS PROMOTION MAY BE A VIOLATION

OF CRIMINAL AND/OR CIVIL LAWS, AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE,

SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK REMEDIES AND DAMAGES (INCLUDING

WITHOUT LIMITATION ATTORNEYS’ FEES) FROM ANY SUCH ENTRANT TO THE

FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW, INCLUDING CRIMINAL PROSECUTION. (viii) The value(s)

of the prize(s) set forth above represent Sponsor’s good faith determination of the approximate retail

value(s) thereof; the actual fair market value(s) as ultimately determined by Sponsor are final and

binding and cannot be challenged or appealed. In the event the stated approximate retail value(s) of a
