The art tells the story of your home—nobody proves this better than local art lover and Birmingham resident Michael Brogan. He showed us his home transformation thanks to the La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries of Birmingham FREE in-home design services and told us about his favorite finds. Wow! were we impressed. Read on for why we love it, including photos and a video.

Michael Brogan expresses his style through art

As a former communications director, Michael is no stranger to creativity and finding unique ways to express himself. The art around his home comes from his travels—and he even has a few pieces from local artists. From prints from a former thrift store in Crestwood to a Tuscaloosa artist’s limited edition paintings, each piece tells a story.

“Everything has a meaning. It struck me the moment I walked in because I knew Michael could tell me where everything came from.”

Ellen Clark, Designer, La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries of Birmingham

After seven years in his Birmingham home, he decided to turn to the experts for design advice. He’d been through multiple couches and layouts, but nothing felt quite right. After learning about La-Z-Boy’s free in-home design program, he decided to give it a go.

Now he has his dream living room!
