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’s Plant 6 Achieves 10 Years Mark with No Lost Time Accidents


england-furniture-reviews-plant-06-02
England Furniture’s Plant 6 – our woodcutting facility – attained a significant safety milestone by going 10 years without a time lost accident on June 9, 2014. Given the nature of the work, and the type of equipment used at Plant 6, England Furniture is proud of this significant achievement.

Plant Manager (Jerry Blair), and the England Furniture employees at this plant, deserved recognition of this accomplishment and hearty expressions of appreciation from England Furniture management occurred during the festivities celebrating the accomplishment. Personnel from Plant 6 enjoyed a steak lunch at the Plant 8 cafeteria.  They also received individual monetary rewards, a drawing for additional furniture prizes, and the receipt of a WOW tee-shirt commemorating the date.

Everyone enjoyed a chance to take a break from their daily routine and to get reflect on their next goal: no lost time of 11 years. The target date for that occurrence would occur in three months.  Go Plant 6!  We’re keeping our fingers crossed for you!

England Furniture Reviews Some Furniture Arrangement Tips

england-furniture-arrangement-02BDecorating your home is an art and one that requires careful calculation of both the space’s needs and your individual tastes. When it comes to arranging your furniture there are, however, a few rules to keep in mind. Here are some tricks of their trade.

1. Beds Are the Main Focus
The placement of the bed should acknowledge the focal point of your bedroom. If you have a small bedroom, place the side of the bed against the wall.

2. Newsflash: TVs Are Not the Main Attraction
Don’t ignore the fireplace – or some other item – that is naturally should be the main element in the room. It’s best to hang your TV on the wall to save space. If you do not have that option, use the focal point of your room as a reference point for choosing a spot.

3. Couches Should Be Surrounded with a Little Space
Place your couch a few inches away from the wall. This makes the space seem larger. If you’re working with a big living room, place the couch in the center facing a set of window, fireplace, etc. This makes the big room feel like two separate spaces.

4. Overhead Lights Go Over the Dining Room Table
The best placement for your dining room table is in the center of the room and under a light fixture. If your dining room lighting is slightly off-center get creative. For example, consider creating bench seating against the wall.

5. Dressers Are Not Stand-Alone Pieces
Dressers look best when they are placed up against a wall. Angling a dresser in the corner looks bad, and just as importantly, it wastes space. Center a dresser on a wall, or if placing it off-center, put another piece of furniture next to it to achieve a sense of balance..

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.
