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.

Thank you to all who visited our Plaza Suites showroom and thanks for your continued support of England Furniture products. We take our commitment to our customers seriously. We honor that commitment by consistently introducing product relevant to the current marketplace. See you in High Point next October, if not before in Vegas!

Versatility of Sectional Sofas

From an interior design perspective, few pieces of furniture are as versatile as sectional sofas. People who have lots of different setups in mind for their living rooms – or sitting rooms – will find England Furniture sectional sofas are a great, flexible choice. These are sofas that people can easily reshape according to their own needs and the look that they’re going for, because sectional sofas are made from multiple pieces that can be rearranged.

The sections of these sofas are often going to form ninety-degree angles. As such, it is going to be that much easier to wedge them into relatively small spaces. People often have unused corners in their rooms. Filling these corners is sometimes tricky, because a lot of furniture just is not shaped for that purpose. Sectional sofas really are. People can arrange their sectional sofas so they fill the corners of their rooms, giving them more space than they would have been able to enjoy if the sofas had been placed closer to the middle of the room. Since sectional sofas can be rearranged so much more easily, people are going to have an even simpler time making them work in almost any room.

People can also use sectional sofas to fill out empty space in very large rooms. The right angles that sectional sofas can form will sometimes make it look like people are creating little islands in their rooms, especially if those sectional sofas are paired with coffee tables and end tables. People who have this setup can create very comfortable and efficient sitting areas.

Since sectional sofas manage to look good in rooms of any size for different reasons, they’re automatically going to be much more versatile than many of the other sofas that people will choose today. Sectional sofas are very much in style in an age where people are favoring furniture that is going to be practical and versatile. If people have to move for any reason, their sectional sofas will look just as good in their new homes. If people need to remodel or redecorate, they’re not going to have to buy new sofas if they have their sectional sofas. People’s lives change, and they need to have furniture that is going to make those changes relatively easy.

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.

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.

england-furniture-dress-sofa

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.
