England Furniture 2014 Market Preview

In a few short weeks, furniture buyers from every state in America, as well as some foreign counties, will descend on High Point, North Carolina, for the semi-annual International Furniture Market. This market is typically held in April and October of each year and it is the most widely known of the regional markets held in various cities across our country. England Furniture, like most other manufacturers, has a showroom in one of the numerous buildings dedicated to the display of furniture and related products. England Furniture’s space is on the first floor of the Plaza Suites.

Long before the scheduled market dates, England Furniture prepares by developing new products. Picking a winning design, selecting up-to-date fabrics, performing cost analysis and rigorous testing all precede the decision to add a style that will complement the existing product mix. Between now and market, England Furniture will be highlighting the results as our Fall 2014 introductions.

England Furniture Awards Sales Reps for their Outstanding Service

England Furniture held their Sales Representative Meeting during the recent 2014 October International Furniture Market in High Point. Several England Furniture representatives were recognized for their performance during the 2014 fiscal year at the event. Some of the many factors that contributed to receiving the England Furniture Sales Awards included measurable criteria such as sales volume, change from the previous reporting period and territory GP. Other factors could including positive work ethic, ability to resolve dealer issues, and other less-definable gauges.

“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.”

England Furniture is fortunate to have an excellent group of women and men who are dedicated to being the professional connection between the England Furniture factory and England Furniture customers. In addition to the terrritory-centered sales awards, England Furniture also identifies the one individual in their sales force who most exemplifies the values held by England Furniture founder, Arnold Dwight England. Called the “Mr. D Award,” award, this prize is arguably the most coveted award presented each October.

On occasion a Trailblazer Award is also presented.  This award acknowledges the efforts of a sales representative who was able to grow in a territory despite challenging circumstances.  This year’s award went to our England Furniture Northern California representative and it recongized her determination in increasing the California market.

On September 18, 2014, England Furniture vendors, suppliers, employees, and sales reps will join with those who generally love golf and will gather at the Woodlake Golf Resort in Tazewell, TN, to take part in the England Furniture 25th Annual ADE Golf Scramble.

The monies generated by the golfing event will be placed in the ADE Foundation, an entity created to disperse funds to charities that seek the good of the local community. Previous recipients have included the American Cancer Society, Habitat for Humanity, Walter State Community College scholarships, and The Alpha School. Funds from the England Furniture Annual ADE Golf Scrambles have helped those affected by weather related catastrophes, they assisted in buying school supplies for elementary school students, and the funds generated have helped with the distribution of Christmas baskets to local under-privileged persons. Funds are used to aid the local community and whether they are given to employees or non-employees.

On Thursday, September 18, teams will gather at the Woodlake for two rounds of golf. Lunch will be provided and prizes will be awarded at the end of round two. For half of England Furniture’s existence, this event has been held in late summer to provide a day of friendly competition with industry friends, while, at the same time, assuring that funds will be available to help individuals in our community.

Many thanks to the loyal patrons who supported the Arnold Dwight England Golf Scramble year after year! Fore!

England Furniture Introduces Coil Core

england-furniture-coil-core-01

The seating surface of a sofa always receives the most wear and the seating area is composed of two components: the spring system and the seat cushion. The spring system is usually constructed from a series of interconnected springs designed to support the seat cushions. Some furniture manufacturers cut corners by using wide loop springs.

england-furniture-coil-core-02

England Furniture offers our customers “Coil Core.” Coil Core is made up of heavy gauge tornado coils which create a resilient spring foundation. Coil Core provides an extra level of support, it allows for years of use and it can only be found in offerings from England Furniture. Coil Core is perfect for those consumers who desire an extra level of support and for older individuals who have difficulties getting up from a seating position.
