Introducing the New Coil-Enhanced Foam Cushion from England Furniture

England Furniture is proud to present their latest ground-breaking technology- a coil-enhanced foam cushion. This cushion features 9 spring coils embedded in the foam core of the cushion, with two 24 lb. foam sections attached to the top and bottom of the core section. This technology combines the luxury comfort of a regular foam cushion with the support and durability of steel coils. Each cushion has 9 steel coils at the center, which means a minimum of 27 coils per sofa.

England Furniture is happy to give their customers choices in their furniture products. We want the customer to be happy and to have furniture that will fit their needs. The coil-enhanced cushion can withstand the wear and tear of children and everyday life while still providing a comfortable place to sit, but if comfort is all you desire, we have cushions for that as well.

Several England Furniture sales representatives were recently recognized for their performance during the 2014 fiscal year at the October International Furniture Market in High Point. Recipients of the various England Furniture Sales Awards were determined by such measurable criteria as sales volume, territory GP, and change from the previous reporting period. Other factors that were often considered included the ability to resolve dealer issues, demonstration of a positive work ethic, and other less-definable gauges.

England Furniture is fortunate to have an excellent group of women and men who are dedicated to being the professional connection between the England Furniture factory and England Furniture customer. “All our reps deserve some level of recognition,” said Otis Sawyer, President of England, “but, when benchmarks are applied, understandably, the ones with the most impressive stats gravitate to the top.”

In addition to the regular sales awards, England Furniture also annually awards one individual in their sales force who best exemplifies the values held by England Furniture founder, Arnold Dwight England. The award, the “Mr. D Award,” is arguably the most coveted honor presented each year. On occasion a Trailblazer Award is also awarded to one individual whose was able to grow in his/her territory despite challenging circumstances. This year this amazing award went to our Northern California representative.

The 2014 England Furniture Sales Awards were awarded to the following persons:
Cam Morgan, North Carolina (Small Territory)

Jim Emerson, ND, SD, MN and No. Iowa (Large Territory)

England Furniture Reviews the Quest for the Perfect Loveseat

england-furniture-loveseatThe loveseat remains a popular room to furnish rooms in your home. They are comfortable and they provide a little more seating than a single chair, but they take up less space than a common couch. Finding the perfect loveseat can be a exciting journey and typically involves the consideration of the following factors.

1. Choice of fabric. When you go in search of your perfect loveseat you’ll want to plan in advance whether you are looking for leather or fabric. Leather can be very durable and often comes in a single color. Fabric options on a loveseat are endless and should match the décor of the room you plan to put it in.

2. Plain fabric or print? If you decide on fabric, you’ll need to choose between all sorts of fabrics. One benefit of choosing a single color fabric over a print is accessorizing. This choice allows you more flexibility on the choice off colorful pillows or afghans that can be changed out with the seasons. A print fabric has multiple colors that you can accessorize around as well, with one color chosen from the print to place a single color throw or pillow that matches other furniture in the room.

3. Charm or durability or both? Do you prefer a rugged, hearty loveseat that is welcoming to kids and pets, a fine fabric that you know will look great on your loveseat or do you want it all?

4. Convertible or regular loveseat? Some loveseats can be converted into a single bed. This is convenient prospect for a single bed and is much more comfortable than sleeping on regular loveseat.

5. Ottoman or no ottoman? Many loveseats can be purchased or ordered with a matching ottoman. An ottoman is basically a foot rest, but in the right environment it can serve as a table. The ottoman can also provide additional seating as necessary.

Whatever you decide, the key to finding the perfect loveseat is to plan ahead and consider the ways you wish to use it in your home. Consider all the loveseats offered by England Furniture and find your perfect loveseat.

England Furniture Reviews Some Benefits of Sectional Sofas

england-furniture-sectional-sofaMost of us take pride in decorating our house to the best of our ability and many people take the time to find the perfect furniture for their home. Sofas are definitely a big part of those decisions and sectional sofas remain a popular choice.

The options of sofas available today are also limitless. What makes sectional sofas stand out is the obvious fact that one can pull the sofa apart. This flexibility allows you the option to arrange the sectional sofa in any style and manner you want it to be and whenever you wish to do so. Sectional sofas allow you to create different spaces and atmospheres as you please.

Another major benefit of sectional sofas is the seating space it offers. A ten foot feet sectional sofa, for example, will offer comfortable seating for at least four guests. This sectional sofa is the ideal choice for big families or people who entertain guests on a regular basis. Depending on the size of the room you may prefer a medium size sectional sofa. This choice allows you to utilize one of the most important benefits of a sectional sofa, its mobility.

Whatever your decorating style England Furniture sectional sofas will suite all your needs and help you to add that extra comfort and style to your home.

England Furniture Reviews Some Leather Furniture Myths

england-furniture-leather-sofaThere are several misconceptions about leather furniture that might cause some people to shy away from using it in their homes. These misconceptions include the belief that leather furniture is too expensive, hard to maintain, and should not be used in homes with children and/or pets. Another common misconception is that leather furniture only fits with certain decors.

Leather is a natural material and it has all of the qualities that make it ideal for furniture such as sofas and chairs. Leather is flexible, supple, and durable. In addition to being long-lasting, good quality leather can actually improve as it gracefully mellows with age and regular use.

Leather can be used on all styles of furniture from classical to western and contemporary to rustic. Leather furniture goes well with any decorating style, in formal or informal settings.

In most households, even ones with children and pets, regular cleaning of your leather furniture can be done by using the crevice tool of a vacuum in between and under the cushions and on the bottom. Dust the furniture with a soft, clean, and dry cloth. A clean, damp sponge or cloth will often take care of most water-based spills.

Leather furniture is durable and it resists tears. In normal situations, it is often able to withstand sharp object pressed against it. In many cases, the leather will simply stretch to a certain extent before the sharp object can poke through or rip the leather.

Even the best leather furniture can fade over time when it exposed to direct sunlight, as will almost any material, so be consider the placement of your furniture. You should try to keep leather furniture at least two feet away from heat sources such as a fireplace, heat vend, or radiator to avoid possible damage.

From a comfy leather sofa to a wood rocker with leather upholstery on the seat and seatback leather has proven to be among the strongest and most durable material used for furniture upholstering. Just like the natural appeal, the value is unmatched. Leather furniture is available in a wide variety of styles and designs and England Furniture has a wide selection of leather chairs and leather sofas.

Choosing the Perfect Sofa Style to Suit Your Style Design and Lifestyle

Certainly the largest piece of furniture in your home, and one that says the most about the overall design style of your home is your sofa. Some prefer the straight lines and minimal design of contemporary sofas. Others like sofas with lots of soft cushy pillows and floral patterns. Still others like sectional sofas.

Today sofas come in literally hundreds of styles with endless choices of upholstery. You can order your sofa mail order through companies like Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel. Most people will tell you that after style the most important thing they look for in a sofa is comfort. Choosing the right style of sofa to enhance your home is key. There are many different styles of sofa to choose from, but most manufacturers break them down into two distinct styles, traditional and contemporary. For instance, more traditional styles of sofa would include barrel back, English arm, tufted back, tight back and tuxedo.

However, depending on fabric choices a Tuxedo sofa could be used in a contemporary home. Contemporary styles include sock arm, channel back and sectional. Some sofas come with pillows attached to the sofa, some come with loose pillows that you can free style any way you choose. Another thing that gives your sofa a definite style is fabric choice. When you visit most furniture stores you’ll have the ability to first choose the style sofa you want and then pick your choice of fabric. Some manufacturers have 30 or more different fabrics you can choose from when you are designing a sofa, with the only limit being how much money you want to spend. The choice of fabric can add thousands of dollars to the final cost of a sofa. Bold bright colors and geometric designs would be used on contemporary sofas and softer muted colors and prints would be used on traditional sofas.

Leather sofas are very popular. With routine care leather is a very durable upholstery choice on a sofa. You’ll want to keep a leather clean and moisturized.

Another sofa option you will want to consider is whether you want a sofa bed, also known as a sleeper sofa, or a reclining sofa or a convertible sofa. Obviously a sleeper sofa or convertible sofa can come in very handy as an extra bedroom for someone who may live in an apartment or have a smaller home who still wants to be able to accommodate guests overnight.

As with any major purchase, shop around. Look around online at different sofa selections so that you can get an idea of what you want before you visit store after store after store. If you see a sofa doing an online search you should be able to find a store that sells that particular brand.

Another great sofa option you may want to consider is a reclining sofa. It really is the best of both worlds. Sofas that are reclining sofas generally have two seats that recline, for maximum comfort. You can get a reclining sofa in most styles, contemporary and traditional.

The most important thing is that our sofa is comfortable for you. Sit in it, recline back if it’s a recliner, lie down across it, after all, that’s where you’ll be napping, isn’t it?

The Sofa Sectional Sleeper – One of Many Choices

The sofa you choose is one of the most important pieces of furniture you can own. This piece of furniture has been one of the most important pieces of furniture humanity has had for many centuries. In fact it is said that even the Romans had some time of sofa, although this piece of furniture has certainly evolved since it first came out. I don’t think the Romans would have ever thought that their idea would eventually become the sofa sectional sleeper we now have.

Sofa designs have changed a great deal and the materials used for these sofas have also become much more comfortable, like the new material we see called microfiber.

Choosing the right sofa for your new home or your redecorating project can be dizzying. Its because there are just so many choices. Have you been in a furniture store recently? They are the size of football fields and have miles, and miles of sofa selections you can make. But in reality there are only three types of sofas, and these three types may use combinations of the other.

1. The traditional sofa

2. The sleeper sofa

3. the sectional sofa

Of course nowadays we have a traditional sofa that is also a sleeper sofa, or a sectional sofa that is called a sofa sectional sleeper. These categories are further divided. For instance you have the tight back sofa, which has a firm seat and no additional pillows. Then you have the attached pillow back, which has a softer seat and back. The filled pillow is sewn into the back of the sofa, thereby making them permanent in the sofa. Then you have the loose pillows and these come as cushions, which can be unzipped and cleaned.

If you are looking for a sleeper sofa because you don’t have a guest room and need the space, but want to accommodate any guests that come over, then you might want to look at the sofa sectional sleeper.

With the sofa sectional sleeper you get the best of both worlds. You get the comfort of a sectional sofa, which can accommodate as many people as come over, allow you to lie about comfortably, and enjoy any of your living room activities. Yet, you can also make one of the sectional parts into a fold out bed which is convenient for overnight guests.

The point is that you have many different sofa options, whether it’s a sofa sectional sleeper, a regular sofa, a sofa sectional, etc. So before heading off to the furniture store you should probably have an idea of what you are looking for, otherwise you will be completely overwhelmed.

How to Preserve Your Furniture

Furniture preservation isn’t just something you do for your great-grandmother’s bedroom furniture or your antique poster bed. By properly taking care of furniture you buy today, you can enjoy it for years to come.

One of the best tips for protecting furniture is to make sure you start the act of preservation as soon as you can. Whether your furniture is brand new or years old, it’s never too early or too late to start maintaining it correctly.

In today’s ‘throw-away’ society, many people fail to take the time to care about furniture preservation. But for people who have furniture they’d like to hand down to their children, help is available. There are tips to preserve furniture not just for tomorrow, but also for decades to come.

The two greatest threats to furniture are people and the environment. The good news is you can have control over both of these factors.

Furniture Preservation 101

The first threat you can control when safeguarding furniture is the human element. For example, take extra care whenever you’re around your living room furniture you’d like to preserve. For example, keep the vacuum away from fragile living room sofa legs and avoid placing drinking glasses directly on table surfaces. In other words, treat the furniture with respect.

The second threat is the environment. Temperature, humidity, and light all play a role in the aging process of wood and upholstery, the two main components of furniture. The first step in preserving furniture is to make sure that your heirlooms are out of harm’s way as much as possible.

Steps to Furniture Preservation

It’s also important to know what types of materials are in the furniture items you plan to preserve. But even if you are unsure, there are a number of rules for maintenance that can be followed across the board, regardless of the building material:

  1. Dust wood finishes with a magnetic cloth.
  2. Avoid harsh commercial/retail oils, sprays or cleaners on wood and fabrics.
  3. Apply only a light coating of paste wax once a year to preserve woodwork.
  4. If liquids come into contact with the furniture, wipe them up immediately.
  5. For added protection to coffee tables or dining room tables, use a tablecloth to repel water, food and other destructive substances that might spill.
  6. If heavy objects are placed on top of furniture, put padding underneath them to protect exposed surfaces.

Moving Preserved Furniture

The day might come when you need to move furniture you’re trying to protect. Items such as living room furniture or bedroom furniture are usually heavy in nature, so it’s important to remember two key rules for moving furniture.

  1. Never pick up your furniture from the arms or top. Instead, support the furniture below its center of gravity.
  2. Never drag your furniture across the floor. Doing so may loosen and separate the joined wood.

Getting the Most Out of Furniture Preservation

If you diligently follow these rules for furniture preservation, you can protect precious heirlooms for your own great-grandchildren to use and enjoy in the future. Just a little forethought and discipline can preserve your furniture for many generations to come.

Guide to Detecting Good Quality When You Buy Furniture

Finding timeless furniture pieces can sometimes be a difficult task. I am not just talking about the design but also the quality of furniture. Of course, you need to put a lot of consideration into the type and style of furniture you decide to buy.

When buying bedroom furniture, for instance, you do not want to end up inadvertently mixing and matching different styles of furniture. Combining modern pieces with vintage style pieces or even Victorian style pieces will not necessarily lead to great aesthetic results. It is best to decide on one theme and stick to it.

If you are one of those people who changes his or her mind often when it comes to design themes, it is best to buy furniture that you can easily work with. It should be flexible and versatile so you can change the look of your room without changing your expensive furniture.

Oak furniture, as well as authentic and one hundred percent solid wood furniture are timeless and match any design theme. Solid wood and oak furniture is also ideal for contemporary design. Because oak furniture pieces are hardwood, they last for a very long time.

To determine the quality of the furniture you are buying, search for a reliable manufacturer first. There are manufacturers that specialise in crafting bedroom furniture, living room furniture, kitchen furniture and hallway furniture made from hardwood. Because this is their specialty, they know exactly how to look for the best materials and how to assemble them into functional furniture.

Check the materials of the furniture you are buying. For instance, if you are buying wood furniture, you would do well to rely on oak furniture instead of MDF. Although oak is a tad more expensive, it is much higher quality and will last longer. This is one of the most durable hardwood materials available. Oak pieces are also timeless and work with any design theme. You can mix and match different types of solid wood with your oak furniture as well.

Another indication of the quality of the pieces when you buy your preferred furniture is whether the manufacturer is offering some sort of guarantee. If they are confident that their pieces are really of top-notch quality they will provide at least a thirty day guarantee. In that time, you can test and thoroughly check the materials of the furniture. If you are not satisfied with the crafting, you can return it before the thirty day period lapses.

The construction is also a key element in determining quality of furniture. It is a lot like buying an expensive handbag. If the stitches are way off and you can see how ugly the seams are, it is probably not authentic. In the same way, the construction of bedroom furniture, living room furniture, dining room furniture and hallway furniture is a dead giveaway of its quality.

No part of the exterior should be chipped. If it is dented, you should consider a different piece. When you buy furniture, especially solid wood pieces, make sure that the surface is scratch resistant. They should also be easy to maintain. Painted solid wood furniture should also be painted well and evenly.

Make sure you check the drawers especially when buying dressers and chests. The drawers should roll out perfectly. Also understand the drawer mechanism to make sure that it can be easily replaced when it finally gives out. Certain types of drawer tracks tend to be prone to damage and they might cause the drawer to get stuck.

Most high quality furniture pieces are also treated with substances that make them less prone to the accumulation of dust. You might want to find out if the furniture you are buying has this feature. It lessens your cleaning and maintenance work.

The very last task is to determine the price. If the price is lower than usual, it might incorporate plywood or be combined with other cheaper woods. When you buy furniture, especially hardwood pieces like oak furniture, it should be within a particular price range. Shop around and find the best deals, but if a price seems too good to be true then it probably is. With these tips in mind, you can easily find high quality bedroom furniture, living room furniture and kitchen furniture that will complete the look of your room.

Iain Jenkins writes articles for Your Furniture Online, an internet based retailer of oak furniture. With a wide range of bedroom furniture in stock, you can buy furniture quickly and easily over the internet.
