Vacuum and Brushing England Furniture

Caring for your 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.

A Friend for Your Sofa

The sofa is probably the largest piece of furniture you have in your living area. Sofas can look lonely all by themselves so let’s explore some “friends” that you can place in front of your sofas.

When you’re sitting on your couch, you’ll likely want a place to hold things like food, drinks, and magazines. There are also, however, options that can be placed in front of your sofa that can provide storage or simply provide a sense of proportion and balance in your living room.

Here are some of many suggestions that you can consider as items to place in front of your sofa.


A Coffee Table

A coffee table is the logic, and most common, choice. Coffee tables are available in all sorts of sizes, heights, and finishes. A traditional coffee table can have a glass top, can be solid wood, or can be made out of metal or finished with a high gloss to shine as the center of attention in the room.

A coffee table should be chosen in a proper proportion for the size of the room and the sofa in front of which it stands. A large square room would look strange with a small, delicate oval glass-topped coffee table, just as a small room would be cramped with a large, heavy, dark-painted square coffee table.

Before buying a coffee table, place a large piece of newsprint or brown on the floor in front of the sofa to help determine an appropriate size and shape. You can cut down the paper or add to it until you get the right proportion for the rest of the furniture and the room.

England Furniture has a wide selection of coffee tables. Browse our England Furniture online catalog to find the perfect coffee table for your living room.


A Large Ottoman

The ottoman is often taking center stage in front of many sofas. An ottoman is simply a large padded or upholstered stool or bench. It’s a perfect piece to use in front of a sofa, as its soft top offers comfort for legs, the upholstery fabric contributes color and texture to the room, and the large flat to is ideal for placing a tray or books. Consider our selection of England Furniture ottomans.


An Old Dining Table

This is the perfect place to put a dining table. Of course, you’ll need to cut the legs down to the proper height (between 15″ and 22″) for your seating space, but the large surface will be convenient for many purposes, including homework, playing games, crafting, and entertaining.


A Pair of Small Tables

Two small square tables, placed side by side, give a slightly more formal look than the more modern large coffee table. A matched pair looks best, but a mismatched set of small tables, of exactly the same height, can be used together with matching tops. If you have a pair of small antique tables, this may be the perfect place to use them.


A Picnic Bench

Consider a picnic bench for a rustic look. A long, low, wooden bench is a perfect touch. The long flat top works well for placing books and beverages without adding too much formality.


A Piece of Glass on a Base

A large built frame, a pair of cement columns, interesting sculptures, or large pots can serve as a stable base for a piece of 1/2 inch thick beveled-edge plate glass, cut to the perfect size. This is a good option for a very small space, as you can place the bases as close together or as far apart as you wish and have the glass cut to fit your space. Keep in mind that the larger the glass, the heavier it will be. So the bases need to be sturdy enough to support the weight.






Living Room Storage Tips from England Furniture

The perfect living room is not only visually appealing, comfortable, and inviting. It also has a place for storage and is free from constant clutter. If you find you have more things, than places for them then these tips may be useful for you and your living room.

Wall Space

Find standard open wall shelves of any size at a home improvement center for an inexpensive storage solution for books and decorative objects. A structured wall unit or entertainment center can house books and electronic equipment and provides space for decorative displays. If you’re going to stay in your home for a while, you might want to invest in custom-made shelves or cabinets. Any of these solutions gives lots of storage space without protruding too much into the living area.

Look Up

There is probably nothing higher than 5 feet in your room, but there’s lots of space above. Install shelves 12″ to 18″ below the ceiling to display collectibles, plants, hats, or photos.

Goodbye to Closet Doors

Consider removing closet doors. Many doors (even the folding style), eat up lots of floor space and that means less room for furniture and for storage options. Use a curtain closure instead. It’s streamlined and the door doesn’t affect the ideal flow of the room.

Behind Closed Doors

It’s ideal not to have to look at the things you’re storing, unless they’re decorative. Increase available storage space by enclosing shelves and cupboards behind doors. Instead of using an open one, choose a bookcase with doors. A 12″ deep shelving unit gives great storage without taking up much floor space. Choose a table for the end of a sofa or beside a bed that has a closed base with drawers or shelves rather than spindly open legs. Find a knee-hole desk with drawers for files and office items rather than an open writing desk.

Over the Window

Mount a shelf above the windows of the room for displaying things you don’t use but love to look at.


5 Sofa Colors that Won’t Box You In!

A sofa can be the centerpiece to your living room and it’s typically the piece of furniture that people notice first.  Many people change the style of their living room frequently, put they’re often not sure how to match a sofa color with the rest of the room’s color scheme.

While bold and bright colors are quite trendy right now, it can be hard to re-decorate with a bright lime green sofa. Whether you paint your walls blue, gray, yellow or red, your sofa should always go with the rest of the room.  We have a few tips and tricks to help you find a sofa that matches your versatile style.

One color that is very neutral is cream.  Many people are nervous about a white sofa and cream is a great alternative. A cream sofa will offer you considerable versatility. If a cream colored sofa is still too “white” for you there are darker alternatives. The colors tan, camel, or biscuit are warmer than cream, but they still provide you the versatility you’re looking for. Still looking to go darker? Brown is also another color that works well in terms of flexibility.


The England Furniture Rondell Collection

If you’re looking for something completely different it is recommended to go with a gray colored sofa or soft muted colors. Like the color black, gray tends to go with all types of colors, therefore making it very adaptable. Muted colors tend to be a bit bolder. While they are still very versatile, they give you that pop of color many seek in there color scheme.

Throughout our lives, we experience a lot changes, including in our homes.  England Furniture can help you choose a sofa color and style that is perfect for YOU.
