Benefits of Buying American-Made Furniture

England Furniture. England Furniture News. England Furniture Company

If you aim to buy American and support local business, you might be thinking about finding a furniture manufacturer right in the United States. There is no shortage of talented craftsmen in America, and England Furniture has taken advantage of that by setting up shop right in Tennessee. Here are just some benefits of buying American-made furniture.

American Jobs

Helping out fellow Americans is as easy as buying American-made products. In fact, England Furniture recently announced an expansion to their factory in Tennessee where 200 new jobs are being created.

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!

Fast Manufacturing

England Furniture has been known for their expedient manufacturing processes since the 1960’s. In three weeks or less, England Furniture gets orders out the door, so you can have your customized piece quick!

Creating Balance in Interior Design

England Furniture. England Furniture Tips. England Furniture Sectional.

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.

Three Easy Ways to Welcome Springtime Indoors

Spring Decorating Tips by England Furniture. England Furniture Sectional.

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.

The Right Furniture Color for Your Lifestyle

fabrics

Ever watch a movie or TV show and fall in love with the furniture? You know, beautiful stark white down couches with a white shag throw rug and glass top coffee table? It can look picture perfect, but if you duplicate the style in a house full of kids and Rover the family pooch, that look might last about thirty seconds. Maybe.

We all want to live in spaces that make us happy and we can more readily do that when we are realistic about our lifestyles and what comes with it. People who enjoy entertaining will have a hard time with furniture that can’t be lived in because spills and accidents happen in life. If you have kids or children visit often, creating an atmosphere that is comfortable for them will end up making your life easier, especially if they wander a little too close to your collection of first editions while sucking on a juice box.

The colors and accessories we choose for our rooms should complement our personalities and accent the things we love. Sometimes it’s safe to have the main furniture be a neutral color and then use pillows and blankets as colorful accents. If you love leather or dark furniture, then you can brighten the room with lighter shades of paint and bright lighting. No matter what you decide, look at your lifestyle and try to match it to your home décor.

We can still fawn over that white furniture, but parents might want to hold off until the kids are a little bit older.

Accents and Accessories that Pop

Over time, it’s easy to get bored with a room, but that doesn’t mean you need to toss everything out and start over. Sometimes a few changes can make the same furniture look completely different, fresh and new!

Where to start?

● Take a look at the room and decide what you love and what you can live without. This doesn’t mean it has to be gone forever, but simple swaps can create a whole new look.

● Look at your colors. If things have the same tone, it’s easy and fun to find a new color that you love to accent what you already have.

● Lastly, look at the arrangement. If the couch, chairs, and tables have been in the same place, just moving things around can open up space or make it a cozier set up. The options are limitless!

Now what?

● If you have dark colored furniture, brighten the room with throw pillows, small area rugs, a vase or even a new lampshade in a bright bold color like a vibrant red or gold.

● Make the changes subtle to make it all blend in while still making the room pop.

● Curtains are also a major focal point for each room. They accent the windows, which are kind of like the eyes of the room. Finding a color or pattern that gives the room a fresh look can make for a dramatic change.

● Don’t be afraid to move the furniture around and try different setups – you can always move it back if it doesn’t work, but you won’t know until you try.

● Mirrors can completely change the look of a room. It will not only make it appear larger, but it can often be the piece that pulls the whole look together.

Warm Cozy Corners

Cozy Corners

Having a nice quiet corner for curling up with a good book can easily become your favorite space in your home. It can be achieved with ease in practically any size home.

  • If you have a window seat, this can quickly serve your purpose with pillows, a floor lamp and a stack of your favorite books or magazines, some knitting or anything that you want close at hand during your quiet time.
  • If you don’t already have a lounge or wing chair, find one that fits your space well with enough room for a lamp and end table. A small end table allows you a surface for your materials and perhaps a drink.
  • Cozy corners for kid’s rooms are also great, especially when they encourage reading. They may prefer a big bean bag chair, kids’ mini sofa, or simply a stack of pillows in a corner of their room.
  • For colder climates, a soft warm blanket can complete the look and create a lovely place to relax.
