There is no shortage of talented craftsmen in America, and England Furniture has taken advantage of that by setting up shop right in Tennessee.

American Jobs

Environmentally Friendly
The amount of gas and diesel burned to ship furniture from overseas is staggering–and it will take more gasoline yet to get that furniture into your home. Less smog in the air is a win for everyone!

Three Easy Ways to Welcome Springtime Indoors

MonroeSectionalEnglandFurniture

Letting that warm springtime feeling inside after a cold winter is one of the best parts of the seasons changing. Welcome the sunshine indoors by refreshing your space. Spring cleaning is more than just dusting—think about starting the new season with a better living room furniture set!

1. Clean
Spring cleaning can become a fun family tradition. Get some music playing, assign tasks, and get the whole family in a cleaning competition!

2. Use Your Green Thumb
Add some plants into your space. Humans are naturally drawn to nature, and adding a vivacious green plant—real or fake—can help bring the budding branches indoors.

3. Furniture Update
Store away heavy blankets and transition into the light, airy feeling of spring. Swap out those dark, heavy curtains with light, sheer ones! If you are considering a new piece of furniture, you will want one that can easily transition through all seasons. The light gray upholstery on this England Furniture Monroe Sectional (pictured) can look chic in any season.

Creating Balance in Interior Design

MalibuEnglandFurniture

Redecorating your space can be fun and refreshing–especially with Spring approaching. With so many ideas online, it can be easy to become overwhelmed by pieces that look like they go together, but don’t quite look right in your space. One trick interior designers turn to when laying out a space is a principle of design: balance.

Balance can help you determine where something “goes”. Whether you’ve purchased a new piece of furniture, or you’re just adding in a new lamp, balance can guide your design decisions.

There are three primary types of balance: symmetrical, asymmetrical and radial. Symmetrical balance refers to mirroring over a central axis, while asymmetrical has more to do with weight. Radial balance means a room is arranged around a central point to evoke centrifugal motion.

Pictured here is a great example of asymmetrical balance. You can see how the weight of the room is balanced out by a small side table and a tall, skinny lamp. The Malibu sectional’s chaise balances with the other side of the sofa.

The benefits of a sleeper sofa/loveseat

Is it time to buy a new sofa? If so, your head may be spinning with all the different types available to you. One of the best options is to consider a sleeper sofa. It can help save you money, optimize your space, and increase your comfort.

Save Money

When you consider the average cost of sofa and the average cost of queen size bed, purchasing a sleeper sofa – 2 pieces of furniture in one – can really save you some money.

A sleeper sofa also means you won’t have to pay to decorate and furnish a guest room. The sofa creates both a comfortable living room and an inviting guest bedroom.

Save Space

Sleeper loveseats and sofas are ideal for smaller homes and apartments where full size furniture would cramp the space.

A twin size sofa bed might be perfect for your room if it is quite small. A twin size loveseat is less than 5 feet wide and when opened will sleep one person comfortably. The mattress is about 39 inches wide and 80 inches long – big enough to sleep a 6 foot man

With a guest bedroom, you can create a dual purpose space – home office, craft room or den and private guest space.

Comfortable Yet Sturdy

Some sofa beds are known for being quite uncomfortable, but England Furniture sleepers are the epitome of comfort. Just check out our air mattresses, our Visco sleeper mattress, and our Custom Comfort innerspring mattresses.

A sleeper can help you to (literally!) stay close to your friends, family and loved ones.  A sleeper sofa comes in handy for out-of-town guest who are feeling unwell and need a place to stay.  The great to have when you hold movie nights and someone wants to stay over. If you’re holding an event and the weather gets too bad for driving, a sleeper sofa can save the day.

Start making your memories today with your new England Furniture sleeper sofa.

Versatile Furniture for Your Home

When selecting furniture for your home it’s just practical to consider items that could go into any room. Consider the tips below to help you choose furniture – and accessory pieces – that work in a variety of room sizes, can be moved from room to room, and can even offer some storage options.

 

  • When furnishing a living room consider two loveseats over one large sofa. They’re easier to move and can be place in a variety of ways.
  • Be creative with your tables. Choose interesting bases and use plate glass for the top. Use these in a living room or as nightstands by a bed.
  • Unless you have a large home, select furniture and accessories that are on a small scale. They’ll fit into most spaces as you move them around in your home.
  • When you’re arranging furniture, try to think ‘outside the box’ and use things in unexpected ways. Place a loveseat at the end of a bed or use a dresser to hold DVDs and entertainment equipment.
  • Choose a color scheme and stick to it. If you carry the colors throughout your home, you’ll be able to move furniture and accessories from room to room.
  • Storage is in short supply in most homes. Select furniture pieces that offer drawers or hanging space, such as a chest of drawers or an armoire. They can be used in a bedroom, living room, mudroom, foyer, and more.
  • Gather together a collection of pillows, fabrics, and accessories that harmonize with your primary color choices. You’ll be able to change the look with the seasons, giving your furniture a new, fresh look throughout the year.
  • Buy side chair, pillows, lamps, and vases in pairs. They’ll add symmetry to a room and, you’ll also have the option of using each piece in a separate room if desires.

 

 

 

England Furniture Reviews the Versatile Chest of Drawers

If there ever was a versatile piece of furniture it is a chest of drawers. A chest of drawers can fit into almost any room. Some are tall and narrow and have abundant drawers. Some are small and can be a nightstand in your bedroom while others are large enough to hold a whole season of clothes.

Is there anything a chest of drawers can’t do?

The storage options are endless with your chest of drawers. The top of a large and tall chest is a great place to display photos, baskets, and plants. The top of a short chest of drawers is a great place for things like candles, flowers, a television, a lamp, and/or books.

Whether the chest has 2 drawers or 12 drawers, whether your chest of drawers looks decorative or is simply a utilitarian piece, the drawers can hide all sort of items: photos, dining items, clothes, hobby supplies, knick-knack, and more!

Here are some ways you can use your chest of drawers to store things all around the home.

 

 

In a Mudroom, Entryway, or Foyer

If your foyer or entryway is large enough, a chest of drawers can be the perfect small piece of furniture. Use the drawers of the chest to hold scarves, keys, gloves, umbrellas, and mail. A small chest of drawers at the entry is perfect for holding mittens, hats, shopping lists, and coupons.

Any low chest of drawers looks great with a beautiful plant or decorative vase on top of it. You can also hang a mirror over the chest and place a lamp on top.

 

 

In the Dining Room

Any long, low chest can take the place of a sideboard. Use the top of your chest of drawers for serving dinners and use the drawers themselves to store things like napkins, trays, placemats, tablecloths, serving dishes, and candles.

A smaller chest offers you a place to hold a beautiful plant or floral arrangement, a tea set, and/or seasonal decorations.

 

 

In a Bathroom

Use a chest of drawers in your bathroom to help break up the space. A tall chest can hold things such as bathrobes, beauty and medical supplies, towels, and washcloths. A small chest placed on a wall near the bath or shower is perfect for bath supplies and towels.

 

 

In a Guest Room

House guests are glad when they have a place to store their personal belongings during their visits. You can also use some drawers to store holiday items such as gift wrap, tags, ribbons, pens, scissors, pens, and scotch tape. Or you can use them to hold craft and hobby supplies including scrapbooking items, sewing items, or fabrics.
