lighting

Lighting is everything! It can make nearly any space look completely different with just a few adjustments.

  • Variety – layer your lighting with table lamps, tall floor lamps as well as overhead lighting for a balanced effect.
  • Highlight your favorite item like a spotlight on special furniture or artwork.
  • Add a tall lamp over a corner reading
  • Try a chandelier or cool lighting fixture above a dining room table to create the right ambiance for your setting.
  • Bedside table lamps give a bedroom a warm inviting tone and are perfect for late night reading.
  • Some rooms can be really tricky to light, like bathrooms, but adding a dimmer switch is a simple and inexpensive way to change the mood with a simple slide of the switch.
  • Candles have always been a simple, yet beautiful way to set a mood.
  • There are battery-operated string lights available that allow you to light corners, bookshelves and more with a very cool effect and no outlet needed. They can give something like a simple vase a whole new look.
  • Twinkle lights for the holidays make any room feel festive and create an inviting effect.
  • A bulb could be the culprit of harsh lighting, so consider a simple change of wattage or bulb type to get that light just right.

Lighting can be fun!  Experiment with what you have before you buy something new.

 

Three Good Reasons to Buy a Sectional

At the England Furniture Company, we know that not everyone instantly loves a sectional.  Many of our customers prefer our England Furniture sofas and England Furniture loveseats, and they prefer them over England Furniture sectionals for a variety of reasons.  Some people feel sectionals are too big, others are concerned about costs, and still others find them “too casual.”  There are, however, at least three good reasons why you may want to consider a sectional sofa for your living room or family room.

They’re Space Savers!

Despite their large size, many sectionals can actually help you to obtain extra space in your room.  Many sectionals can be arranged to fit perfectly in those tight corners.  A sectional purchase also means you typically don’t need to purchase additional seating. Having one sectional in your living room will help you to create a simple and streamlined design.

 

They’re Great for Naps and Bedtime!

While many of our England Furniture sofas and England Furniture loveseats are a great place to take a nap, England Furniture sectionals are particularly worthy for naps and overnight guests.  They made for relaxing your entire body, you can often have more than one person spread out during movie night, and they’re a perfect place for your overnight guests.

 

Sectionals are Versatile!

Perhaps the reason for their initial creation, sectionals tend to be extremely versatile pieces of furniture.  Sectionals can be left-facing, right-facing or both. Some sectionals include convertible sofas or have reclining capabilities.  Other sectionals may include built-in tables or even drink holders.  All sectionals have the ability to be versatile. If you ever get sick the arrangement in your family room or living room, – or you move – you can easily break apart the pieces of many sectionals and use them in a different layout – or use the pieces separately.

England Furniture Fulfills Expectation at International Furniture Market

The recently concluded International Furniture Market held in High Point, NC, fulfilled our expectations of optimistic opportunity! England Furniture went armed with two merchandising programs to offer our dealers realistic, affordable avenues for profitable sales.

The first is MetroMix. This is a collection of contemporary styles with a retro feel in size and design. Our theme at market was “The Next Generation” and this assortment of groups clearly fits with the needs and desires of a segment of our population that is now overtaking baby boomers in number. Clean lines, skirtless, plenty of button detail, all atop a simplistic leg treatment is the future of style in metro areas. Did I say affordable?

The second collection is EZ Motion. While not an entirely new concept, it is now being offered throughout our dealer base. It contains some styles in the former program and several styles new to the England Furniture line-up. EZ Motion will include combinations of stand-alone and sectional pieces to bring comfort to the living areas of many first time motion consumers.

Based on orders written at market, our 5 top selling stationary groups were the 4X00 (new), 2Y00N (Oct. market intro), 4630 (Special), 4T00 sectional (new) and 5K00 (new). Three of our top 5 were new offerings. 78% of motion product ordered at market was EZ Motion with the most popular being the EZ170, followed closely by the EZ160. Leather sales were headed up by the 2010L in both a double reclining sofa group and a sectional treatment. The 300 sleepers were tops in their category with an old favorite, the 1304D chair, leading the accents.

The top five fabrics overall were Grande Linen, Wagga Wagga Otter, Paradigm Silt, Sawyer Cocoa and Jive Granite. The top five leathers were Galveston Vintage, Salvador Black Oak, Galveston Firebrand, Ryder Cognac and Salvador Asphalt.

England Furniture Reviews Las Vegas Market (Jan 2016)

england-furniture-reviews-Jan-2016-las-vegas-market-02

The recent Las Vegas Furniture Market proved to be a huge success for England, Inc. Attendance was up 97% over January 2015 and orders written were up 76% over the same time period last year. While several factors, including a much larger showroom, may have contributed to the increases, England Furniture has made the commitment to a greater presence in the western part of the US. That effort, by all measures, seems to be working.

While many things may be done to attract buyers to our show space, ultimately it’s the product, service, and delivery that keeps customers happy. In these three arenas, England Furniture does not fall short. Most of our new products received double-digit placements and commitments.

From our current lineup, the England Furniture 2880 Sectional was the top seller in stationary. In motion, it was England Furniture 3A00. The leather best seller was the 2R00AL. The favorite sleepers were the 300 and 900 styles. In accent pieces, multiple sku versions of the 2910 style took 4 of the top 15 places. The most popular fabric at the market was Desire Mushroom followed closely by Grande Leather. Stallone Branch was the top leather.

As our graphic proclaims, we are grateful to you for visiting our space and letting us show you the product that we are proud to display. We look forward to seeing you again in July/August.
