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 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)
