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 2015 Pantone Color of the Year

Every year a secret meeting of representatives from various nations’ color standards groups meet to determine the Pantone Color of the Year. This year the chosen color is Marsala. A naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls. The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors. Marsala is equally appealing to men and women and it encourages color creativity and experimentation. This color is dramatic and at the same time grounding, the rich and full-bodied red-brown Marsala brings color warmth into home interiors.

England Furniture invites you to embrace the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year by considering our England Furniture fabrics that highlight the color Marsala.  This post is a first in a series of ten articles exploring these Marsala fabrics from England.

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.

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…

England Furniture Reviews some Furniture Care Tips for Winter


When the weather outside is cold you and your family may not being the only ones suffering. Wooden furniture has three archenemies: low humidity, heat, and sunlight. All three of them can work their hardest against your furniture during cold winter months.

Indoor winter air can be extremely dry. As cold air is brought in and warmed to room temperature, its capacity to absorb is greatly multiplied. This “thirsty air” draws moisture from all kinds of sources. Consider a humidifier to keep your home’s relative humidity around 30 percent. Also keep in mind that sudden changes in humidity are not good for wood furniture. Try to keep the humidity levels as consistent as possible whenever possible.

Heat from nearby fireplaces, a hot air vent or radiator can be more extreme than the heat of summer. Avoid placing solid hardwood furniture directly in front of radiators or other heat sources. While the temperatures in your home is likely lower than during the summer months, some areas of your home are much warmer. Use care when placing your furniture in any given room and do not block a heat vent.

Sun damage can occur during any time of the year. Consistent, direct, intense sunlight can bleach a fine wood tabletop. To prevent such damage rotate the furniture in the room periodically. If that’s no possible rotate the individual piece (or pieces) in place and occasionally move accessory items to avoid the possibility of marks on the surface.

Finally, low humidity, heat and sunlight aren’t the only culprits during winter. If you have snow, salt and/or cinders on your gloves be sure to not touch wooden furniture with them.

England Furniture Reviews How to Convert a Living Room into a Guest Bedroom

england-furniture-sleeper-sofaDo you often have overnight visitors at your home? Is it important for you to create a welcoming environment for your overnight guests? If you don’t have a separate guestroom to accommodate your guests you may feel a bit overwhelmed but, as we’ll see, many people have found ways to turn their living into a beautiful guest room.

How can one turn a living space into a cozy and comfortable guest room for a night? A great first step is owning a comfortable, and fashionable, sleeper. England Furniture offers a wide selection of sleeper sofas. Sleepers are the best option for any home that does not have a guest room. You then want to arrange your room in such a way that your sofa sleeper can be converted into a bed in a short time. Let’s face it, some guests come on a short notice and you careful arrangement now leads to less stress if in a hurry. You don’t have to keep your room looking sparse, but if you it would be best to avoid stuffing your living room with unnecessary items like huge racks and lots of decoration pieces. Many people add one piece of furniture that includes one or two drawers so they can place wash room accessories in them for their guests. You can also purchase a separation screen to help to create a sense of privacy for your guest. .

With the above preparations in place you can now just remove the cushions from your comfort sleeper, and turn it into a bed. Use a beautiful bed spread and some fluffy pillows to add warmth and relaxation. Provide some extra courtesy for your guests by placing a night light near their sleeping area and you’re ready for some overnights guests.

England Furniture Reviews Some Ways to Use an Area Rug

england-furniture-area-rugsFloors are the foundation for the designs of any room and an area rug can visually integrate or harmonize diverse design elements in any decor.

England Furniture invites you to consider some of the following factors when considering purchasing an area rug or decorating with an area rug.

1. The Size of the Rug and the Area to be Covered

Start with sizing up the room and the area you want to cover with a rug. The most common area rug sizes are 4’x6’, 5’x8’ and 6’x9’. An 8-by-10-foot area rug can cover an entire room while the smaller styles can be used underneath a coffee table or chair or in front of sofa, loveseat or bed.

2. Visualize the Look

Visualize the finished look of the room with an area rug in place. Do you prefer the sparse, uncluttered look or would you prefer a room rich with colors and textures? It’s important to remember that a rug is typically the largest splash of color in room. Many people first select their first and then the upholstery on their furniture to blend with the rug later. Regardless of the flow, the design and colors of the furniture should enhance the design or colors of the area rug. Some people take it a step further and allow the elements of a rug design to assist them in the overall design scheme. For example, if the rug is floral, they add framed prints or flowers in similar colors. Check out our England Furniture Area Rugs to see some of the latest styles and colors.

3. Using Multiple Area Rugs

One area rug is the general rule as it coordinates the room together and it helps select fabrics for furniture, curtains, etc. That stated, more than one rug can be used to separate a very large room into sections. The designs of the rugs should be different enough to create spatial separation, but similar in color and quality so to maintain the integrity of the room space.

4. Some other considerations:

  • Make sure that the rug corners do not extend into high traffic areas to prevent trips.
  • Try to avoid having the corner of the rug end up in the middle of the doors or archway openings.
  • For smaller rooms, a small pattern is a popular choice as it gives the appearance of a larger room.
  • It is recommended to rotate area rugs on a yearly basis to try to equalize the wear from traffic.

England Furniture Reviews a History of Wing Chairs

england-furniture-wing-chairs-02Among the extensive range of occasional chairs that are available today the wingback chair has one of the most enduring pedigrees. Few people browsing for furniture for their home today, however, realize that the wing chair actually has a history spanning hundreds of years.

The wingback is a chair that is usually fully upholstered and has “wings” rising up from the arms and joining the back at a 90-degree – or wider – angle. The original purpose for the wings is assumed to be that these chairs prevented drafts in old houses or they helped to protect a person from the heat of a roaring fire in the hearth. Wingback chairs are often still referred to as “fireside chairs.”

The first wing chair likely appeared in the late 1600s, but it was not until sometime after 1720 that it gained widespread popularity. Wingback chairs soon appeared in colonial America and they often had cabriole legs and curving lines distinguishing them from other types of chairs and styles. The fabrics that were used were necessarily subtle or subdued. Examples of bright patterns can be found among pieces from colonial and Georgian drawing rooms.

American wing chairs, also called easy chairs, were often considered bedroom furniture suitable for anyone who was frail or tired and often spent their days sitting quietly in their room. Antique wing chairs were, therefore, often associated with elderly people. This connection led to yet another synonym for winged chairs, the england-furniture-wing-chairsgrandfather chair.

Contemporary designers now produce all sorts of shapes and sizes of wing chairs. Though the functional need for the wing chairs has, of course, declined as modern homes moved away from open fires as a heating source, the design motif remains steadfastly popular. Today modern homes have changed their layout and function considerably, but one can often find winged chairs in almost any room. Wingback chairs may have a classic shape but they can be upholstered in a wide array of modern fabrics. Check our selection of England Furniture winged chairs.
