Vacuum and Brushing England Furniture

A regular weekly vacuum prevents the accumulation of dust and dirt within the fabric. The vacuum of England Furniture should be gentle but thorough.  Aggressive abrasion of the vacuum head over the face of the fabric can cause yarn fibers to break and tear.

Do not use a  rotating brush or beater bar attachment.  Light brushing with a soft bristle brush is best for the gentle removal of any accumulated soil.

A weekly vacuum of the upper surfaces with a monthly full surface vacuum and brush works well under conditions of normal utilization. The monthly full surface vacuum and brush is an excellent opportunity to remove the cushions and vacuum the seat deck of any dirt, fiber, or other particles that may have accumulated.  The cushions should be turned and rotated when placed back into position.

Spot Clean England Furniture

Cleaning your England Furniture Company product


If spills result in a stain, spot cleaning is best for removal. Before spot cleaning, it is important to know the fabric cleaning code.  The cleaning code provides specific information regarding fabric cleaning methods recommended by the Joint Industry Standards Committee.

Manufacturers, based on information from their fabric sources and laboratory testing, add an alphabetical symbol to each new fabric swatch denoting the cleaning method. Symbols and their meanings adopted by the Joint Committee are as follows:

Code “W” Clean only with water based shampoo or foam upholstery cleaner. Do not over wet. Do not use solvents to spot clean. Pile fabrics may require brushing to restore appearance. Cushion covers should not be removed and laundered.

Code “S”
Clean only with dry cleaning solvent. Do not saturate. Do not use water. Pile fabrics may require brushing to restore appearance. Cushion covers should not be removed and dry cleaned.

Code “SW”
Clean with shampoo, foam or dry cleaning solvents as desired. Do not saturate with liquid. Pile fabrics may require brushing to restore appearance. Cushion covers should not be removed to launder or dry clean.

Code “X”
Do not clean with either water or solvent based cleaner. Use vacuuming or light brushing only.


It is extremely important to pre-test your cleaning method on a hidden area of the fabric to determine if the colors bleed or if the fabric shrinks. When in doubt, seek the help of a professional furniture cleaner.




The fabric cleaning code for England Furniture can be found on the law label typically located on the seat deck or the underside of the frame.

Routine care and maintenance of England Furniture keeps it looking fresh and vibrant while providing full longevity to the fabric, cushions and overall condition. These steps, along with periodic professional cleaning, can provide many years of comfort, pleasure and satisfaction with your furniture selection.

England Furniture Sales Awards Given During October Market

England Furniture held their Sales Representative Meeting during the recent October International Furniture Market in High Point. At this meeting several England Furniture representatives were recognized for their performance during the 2014 fiscal year. Some of the factors that contributed to receiving the awards included measurable criteria such as sales volume, change from the previous reporting period and territory GP. Other possible factors 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 the retail outlets. In addition to the set sales awards, England Furniture also annually identifies the 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 given. This award acknowledges efforts by a sales representative who was able to grow in a territory in spite of challenging conditions. This year this amazing award went to our Northern California representative for 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.
