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.

England Furniture - Comparision

How England’s 5635 sofa stacks up to the competition.

This web site illustrates through pictures and text the many ways England Furniture builds quality into its product. An England sofa (5635, Brantley) is stripped of its cover and compared to an similar style built by our competition.  If you care about longevity and what’s inside your sofa, you will find this web site very informative.



The longevity of a piece of upholstered furniture all starts with the frame. England offers a lifetime frame warranty on every piece we build. We can do this because we build our frames from three quarter and seven eighths inch frame grade plywood [1], reinforced with hardwood [2].

England Furniture Company springs

Other brands use wide loop springs in their seating system. Wide loop springs exert significantly less pressure on the frame. They also cover more surface area, so, fewer springs can be used in the seat. All this means less pressure on the frame. Less pressure means you don’t have to use as much or, the same quality of material in your frame.

England reinforces its 5635 seat with two perpendicular wires (A & B) running the length of the spring surface. We double spring each end (C) of the sofa and connect the last spring in the series to the frame.

We make sure to run the perpendicular wire under the seat spring. To save time, our competitors attached their wire on the top side of the spring. This will cause chaffing and uneven wear on the seat deck pad.

Frame Engineering

All England frames are cut by one of fourteen computerized routers.  This sophisticated equipment allows us to cut with precision and build reference points into our frame. Whenever possible, we design our frames with interlocking joints.  We have so much confidence in our frame design and construction that we back them up with a lifetime warranty.

England Furniture Company frame engineering

Perpendicular joints in an England frame are interlocked, adding to its overall strength.  Note how the perpendicular spring rail (A) is integrated into the frame.  Note, too, how the leg rail (B) is recessed and integrated into the front rail.

Guide notches cut by our automated routers, act as a road map insuring that our frames are assembled correctly. Note the guide notches along the front arm assembly. These reference points insure arm sticks are placed in exactly the correct position.

Arm Construction

England uses heavy gauge cardboard (.090) throughout its frame. This is almost twice the thickness of competitors arm cardboard (.054). We use heavy gauge cardboard because it makes our well built frame that much stronger. No wonder we feel comfortable giving you a lifetime frame warranty!

Back Support

Other brands save money by eliminating back springs in favor of sheeted material. The elimination of back springs results in a back support with no give. Comfort must be achieved with the back pillows alone. When using this type of construction, it is even more important to fill the backs with high grade fiber. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case.

England uses only the highest grade polyester fiber fill in its back cushions. Before placing them in the back casing, fiber is blown into a baffled bag (style 5635). This helps keep the fiber from settling. Even the best fiber fill may take a body impression over an extended period of constant use. For this reason, England installs hidden zippers in all of its backs, arms, and seats using fiber fill. That way, the consumer can add fiber fill to suit their seating preference. A bag of fiber can be purchased at your local hobby store or, for a few dollars, you can purchase genuine England fiber from your local England dealer.

England goes an extra step to insure its backs look good. We sew sheeted fiber to the inside of our backs. This helps create a smooth exterior surface and prevents fiber from migrating through the fabric. Most manufacturers don’t go to this trouble because of the added expense. At England, we build furniture that is designed to last.

Back springs, baffled inserts, and high grade polyester fiber fill all help ensure that our back cushions remain as crisp and comfortable tomorrow as they did when you first purchased your sofa.

England Furniture Company - Seating

England cushions are made of foam wrapped with a thin layer of sheeted fiber.  To save money, other brands use large amounts of sheeted fiber [A] wrapped around a thin foam core.  England warranties its cushions for ten years. Other brands offer a one year warranty.

England goes to the added expense of using self healing zippers in all its upholstery.

1. The zipper is punctured   2.  The zipper is pulled apart.   3. The zipper handle is pulled across this split (in the open direction).   4. The direction is reversed.  5. The zipper handle is pulled across the split (in the closed direction).  6. The split is healed.

Your sofa needs padding between its cushions and the spring system. England covers its springs with a durable low-melt fiber barrier and a tough seat deck denim.

Other brands cut costs by substituting a non-woven product to cover their springs. Take a quarter and rub it across the seat deck. See if the material begins to break down after a few rubs. This will give you some idea of its quality and durability.

Little things can make a big difference

Small things can make a big difference. For example, we ship our legs in a bag attached to our sofas. We do this so they won’t get damaged during the delivery process. We noticed several consumers asking for replacement legs which were damaged in the process of screwing them into this leg rail. The solution was a small cardboard pad placed between the leg rail and the leg.   It is hidden beneath the dust cover and no one knows its there but, the incidence of damaged legs dropped appreciably once we added this component. . . . . . . It’s what’s inside that matters.

England Furniture Reviews Ways to Add Color to Your Living Room

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to liven up your living room. Purposefully adding some color is great way to give your old room a fresh, new look. Consider the following ways you can add some color.


Paint One Wall

You will find that you can add a real punch of color by painting just one wall of your living room. This will really change the focal point of the living room without getting into a major decorating project. If your room has a niche, that’s the perfect choice for extra color. You can choose a bold, contrasting color picked from a floral fabric, or a subtle tone darker than the tone of the other walls.


Paint the Back of a Bookshelf

A great touch of color and interest can be added by painting a bookshelf two colors. Paint the frame and outside one color, and paint the inside of the piece, behind the shelves, with a contrasting color. The color will really help the items on the shelves pop out and look important.


Put Some Color on the Floor

A colorful throw rug, strategically placed in front of a chair or under a coffee table can add color and texture to a living room. It can be put on top of hardwood flooring, painted floors, or carpet.


Reflecting Color

Try placing a large mirror on a bare, boring wall. Choose an interesting frame or decorate a piece of mirror with cording or braid. If you have an old frame, consider painting it a bright color. The mirror will reflect the color from around the room and add light to the space.

england-furniture-add-color-living-roomThrow a Few Pillows Around

Nothing adds color like pillows strategically placed on furniture. Whether you choose solids for a floral sofa or chair, or colorful, patterned pillows for a solid color chair or sofa, these simple additions will add comfort and just the right splash of color.


Add a Whimsical Lamp

Even if you have a traditional classic living room, you can add a point of interest by selecting a lamp or shade that is colorful or whimsical.


Get Artsy

A colorful piece of art placed in a living room not only adds a decorative touch, but also introduces colors and shapes you might not be able to use in a larger area. Try framing simple photos with colorful mats and bright frames.


England Furniture Encourages You to Have a Plan!

It’s almost guaranteed that your living room will change over the years to come, but that doesn’t mean that you have to walk into a furniture store blind. Before you begin your journey in finding the perfect England Furniture sofa for your home you should have a gameplan for the entire living room.


A great way to plan is to have swatches of your wall color. You can also cut out pictures of what you’re thinking about for décor from a magazine. Another great tool is the England Furniture Room Planner. This tool can help you to customize the living room of your dreams!

When in doubt, plan it out! Our England Furniture dealers are always available to make your buying experience easier and to help you with your living room plans.

England Furniture Reviews: Salvaging Your Furniture after Flooding?

No one wants to expect their house is going to flood, but if happens the pain of realizing you may have to replace everything can be strong.  But don’t start throwing everything out just yet! There may be some hope for your cherished pieces.


First you’ll want to separate everything so the colors don’t bleed into each other. You also want to make sure everything dries completely to avoid mold or mildew. It is recommended to get it cleaned by a professional as the water may contain contaminants.

If the above suggestions are not practical, or you prefer to get new furniture, England Furniture is here to help you.  Let us help you feel at home again!  Browse our England Furniture catalog today.

Dress your Sofa with Style

Finding the perfect accent pieces for your new sofa can sometimes be a little difficult, and pillows often seem to not be enough.

When adding accents to your sofa, be sure to take a swatch that matches your sofa color with you. Second guessing the exact color of your sofa can be irritating and difficult. Getting a few different colored pillows for your sofa will give you variety. Make sure to pick out pillows that not only coincide with the sofa but also with each other.


Another great accent piece to add to your sofa is a throw blanket. You want to get a throw blanket that goes with your sofa but is NOT an exact match. The best trick is to pick an accent color off a pillow and try to match it to that.

An ottoman or coffee table can also give your sofa that hidden touch. When you purchase an ottoman or coffee table look for something that goes with your sofa. You never want to match the exact colors, but rather get something that accentuates the sofa, as it tends to be the main piece of your living room.

England Furniture can help you pick out some new accents for your couch and point you in the right direction. Accents are a very important part of making your home feel like home and England Furniture can help guide the way.

England Furniture Reviews Spring Market in High Point, NC

April brings two things with certainty to High Point, NC – allergens and the International Furniture Market. While we have no control over spring and the former, the latter is ours to define in whatever manner we think best showcases our products.  Response from dealers who visited our Plaza Suites showroom reinforced our prediction that this would be a fantastic market for England Furniture. Our floor was filled with fresh looks, lively colors and a balanced mix of traditional, contemporary and transitional furniture.  Our Top 5 best-selling styles were the 5380 Weaver, 4630 Angie, 2V00 Vespers, 3B00 Paxton and 1Z05 Blayklee.  The top selling motion group was the 3A00 Masters and the favorite leather group was the 2T00AL Loyston. The cover chosen most to dress market purchases was Longhorn Silt, an overall simulated suede-look fabric.

Programs new in April, 2015, include Sunbrella, a line of indoor, outdoor furniture covered in soft, luxurious Sunbrella, Glen Raven Mill’s fade resistant performance fabric made of acrylic based fiber. Sunbrella was originally designed for patio and sunroom furniture, awnings, marine applications and other areas where the elements play havoc on natural fabrics.

Dorchester Abbey, a step-up leather program featuring select leathers and linens on a limited number of frames, is being offered to qualifying dealers. Work continues on adding Coil Core spring enhancements as an option to motion. Motion styles new at the April market can accommodate the upgrade; older motion styles will be converted as parts become available, our goal being by the end of June.

In keeping with our tag line “Furniture durable enough to survive the whole family,” England Furniture “wow’ed” dealers with England Furniture Pet Beds – an upholstered, monogramable bed for pets available in two sizes – small and medium. Now your pet can sleep on its own furniture, perhaps in a cover inspired by your own sofa!

Traffic and sales were both up double-digits in the England Furniture showroom. For the sake of our beloved industry and the men and women who work in it, we hope other showrooms had similar results. Even though the pollen seemed up by double-digits, too – and it rained way more than we thought it should – it turned out to be quite a pleasant market. Many thanks to our England Furniture customers, the England Furniture employees who made it happen, and to our England Furniture dealers for affirming their efforts. Now on to planning for the October Market…
