England Furniture Reviews some Furniture Care Tips for Winter


england-furniture-review-winter-care-furniture-tips

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 Sales Awards Presented for 2014

During the Representative sales meeting at the October International Furniture Market in High Point several England representatives were recognized for their performance in Fiscal 2014, ending April 30th. Factors contributing to receiving the awards include measurable criteria such as sales volume, change from the previous reporting period and territory GP. Somewhat influential are things like positive work ethic, ability to resolve dealer issues, and other less-definable gauges. England is fortunate to have an outstanding group of men and women dedicated to being the professional connection between the factory and the retail outlet.

In addition to the sales awards, England annually identifies the person in their sales force who most exemplifies the values held by its founder, Arnold Dwight England. Called the “Mr. D Award”, it is, arguably, the most coveted of the plaques presented each October.

Periodically, a Trailblazer Award is given to acknowledge efforts by a sales representative to grow a territory in spite of challenging conditions. This year, our Northern California representative was singled out for her determination in increasing the California market.

“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.”

The 2014 England Furniture Sales Awards were awarded to the following persons:
Cam Morgan, North Carolina (Small Territory)
Josh Weeks, Colorado and parts of NE and WY (Medium Territory)
Jim Emerson, ND, SD, MN and No. Iowa (Large Territory)
Phil Johnson, Kansas and Missouri and parts of Iowa and NE (“Mr. D” Award)
Dolly Ponta, No. California (Trailblazer Award)

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.

How to Find Small Sofas for Small Rooms

Do you have a small living room, dorm room or apartment that is in need of a sofa? Are you unsure of what to purchase in order to incorporate both comfort and spaciousness?

If you already have a small space, the last thing you probably want is a large sofa that makes the room appear even smaller. After a hard day at work or school, you want to relax in your home, not feel confined and claustrophobic in a small living area due to a bulky piece of furniture.

The difficulties inherent in a small living room are not insurmountable. There are various options to choose from in small-scale sofas. You do not have to forego style and comfort to save on space!

What to Look for in a Small Sofa

There is more to space saving design when it comes to seating in a small living or family room than choosing a loveseat. You might be asking yourself what other options are available. Surely, a sofa’s dimensions are not the only avenues that need to be investigated, right?

Correct! There is more to choosing a small sofa than just its size. Along with size, there are different sofa features that are available that make a sofa appear sleeker and less bulky.

It is important to have a sofa that would not overpower the space in your small living area.

What Makes a Sofa Appear “Small Scale”?

Besides size, there are different sofa features that make it appear sleeker and trimmer. In other words, perfect for a small space. These features include:

* Few curves with clean, straight, and simple lines

* Straight or no arms

* Legs remaining visible underneath the sofa, that is, they are not covered by upholstered flaps

Futons also have features that give this sofa a small-scale appearance. They have simple, straight lines, narrow arms, with no upholstered flaps. Although many are wider than what would be considered small-scale, their simplicity makes them a natural for small spaces.

By simply changing the cover of a futon, you have the ability to change its overall look. You can go with a more traditional feel by having a design of large flowers and leaves on a subdued color palate of dark brown and beige. Or, if your style leans toward contemporary, you could choose plain beige, black or any other neutral color.

With their sleek, simple lines, most futons naturally have a modern contemporary look. However, this can be curtailed into a more traditional look with the use of different designs in coverings.

The other wonderful feature of a futon is its ability to be changed into a bed. Once the cover begins to wear, it is easy to replace with a new one.
Taking Size into Account

Most sofas for small spaces range in size from 72 inches or smaller. It should be noted that if you go too small, you might end up with seating for two instead of three. That is, you’ll end up with a loveseat instead of a sofa.

If you wanted something smaller than a loveseat, you could purchase a settee or Chair and a Half. Chair and a Halfs usually range around 49″ or smaller and settees range between 40 to 50 inches in length.

Below is a list of measurements to help you remember approximate sizes of small-scale sofas as compared to loveseats and settees. Make certain to take measurements of the space you need to obtain seating for before making a purchase. This will alleviate any unnecessary headaches and hassles from purchasing the wrong size seating for your room.

  • Small Scale Sofas: 72″ or smaller
  • Loveseats: 63″ or smaller
  • Chair and a Halfs: 59″ or smaller
  • Settees: 49″ or smaller

Use the above list as a guide, not as a hard-and-fast rule. There are sofas, loveseats, Chair and a Halfs and settees that do not meet this criteria. However, the above measurements are the norm.

Also, it is possible to find a sofa that is over 72″ that would still afford your room a spacious feel. For example, if you discover a sofa that is over 72″ with a sleek appearance and no upholstered flaps, it may work perfectly in your room if space allows.

It basically comes down to your individual taste.

Another option for a sofa in a space that would normally fit only a loveseat would be to look for sofas without arms. This would allow seating for three instead of two. Sofas usually have large arms that take up a fair amount of unnecessary space. By eliminating arms, you would increase your seating area!

This may not be for everyone, as you may not find an armless sofa comfortable enough for you. However, due to its space saving potential, it is worth investigating.

A Word to Those Lovers of Traditional Furnishings

Small-scale sofas tend to appeal more to lovers of modern or contemporary furnishings than those who prefer traditional. This can be disappointing if you prefer traditional furnishings, but you need a space saving sofa!

If your taste leans toward traditional, the sleek, straight lines of contemporary furnishings may appear cold and sterile and would not lend to the homey warm feel that you enjoy.

You should keep in mind that it is not necessary to purchase a sofa with all the features noted previously. For example, you could purchase a sofa with arms and legs that have curves instead of the contemporary straight lines. If the curves are not too thick, then this may satisfy your desire for a traditional look while still saving on space.

Summing Up

Having a small living room, family room, dorm room or living room has its disadvantages when it comes to seating. You want to get the most “bang for your buck”, by having as much seating as possible while still giving your room a spacious feel. Not always an easy feat in a small space!

There are particular features in a sofa that would give it a small-scale look such as straight lines, small arms and legs that raise the sofa. You could even maximize your seating by purchasing an armless sofa. This would allow seating for three instead of two.

Even if you do not appreciate all the features listed above in a sofa, you can pick one feature and look for other features that you love. For example, if you have a traditional lean in furnishings, you could purchase a sofa with curved arms and legs, but have it raised off the floor by legs uncovered by upholstered flaps. This way, you achieve a spacious look (by the negative space left underneath the sofa) but retain your unique sense of style and taste in the sofa.

Bottom line, you don’t have to sacrifice your style in home décor to achieve a spacious feel in a small space.
