England Furniture Reviews Picking the Perfect Furniture Fabric

04EnglandFindingTheRightColor

When you’re redecorating, one of the first things you might do is set a color palate. Once you have a combination of colors in mind, and you set out to find the furniture, paint and lighting to fit your vision, you may run into a road block. Selecting the fabric to upholster a piece of furniture might be a challenge when given so many options. Here, England Furniture reviews things to consider when choosing fabric for your new furniture.

Bring Samples with You
Whether it’s a swatch of fabric or a paint chip, keeping these samples in your purse or wallet may help you when inspiration strikes. If you see a pillow or other room accessory at a store, you can get a better idea of how the colors might look together using paint chips and fabric swatches.

Avoid Sticking to Trends
Your home will stand the test of time, but often, trends do not. Instead of including trends that you do not totally love in your home, opt for fabrics that you are drawn to. Consider colors that have made you happy throughout your life.

England Furniture Reviews the Boone Collection

Don’t be fooled by low-quality, rustic furniture just because you like the look of a piece of furniture. England Furniture is American made and prides itself on quality on every piece.

What’s the Difference in Leather Types?

LaraeCocktailOttomanEnglandFurniture

It may be easy to be fooled when looking for quality leather products. There are plastic-based materials that try to emulate leather, but don’t last nearly as long. When it comes to furniture, you want to make sure that you purchase pieces that would last you for years to come. England Furniture has several different varieties of leathers to pick from in different colors and textures. The Larae Ottoman with Nails 3NO7ALN is only sold in leather, but in the colors of your choice. It features tall turned wooden legs with a sophisticated naihead trim.

Here is an England Furniture review on the four main types of leather.

Full Grain
It’s the most durable and highest quality leather. It contains the strongest part of the hide and includes all parts of the natural grain. This makes it more expensive to treat which also makes it cost more. This leather is like fine wine, it gets better with age.

Top Grain
Unlike Full Grain, the outer layer of the hide is removed from the Top Grain which puts this at second-place for quality leather. It’s also thinner and easier to work with, which brings the cost down. Some people enjoy this leather more because it has a more uniform surface than the Full Grain.

Split Leather
Suede falls under this type of leather and it’s made by splitting the bottom part from the grain. It’s textured to have a napped finish with a small pile.

Bonded Leather
This leather is only 17% real leather. Bonded leather is made by taking scraps of real leather, grounding them up with plastic and attaching them to a hard fiber backing. It’s lower quality which makes the product less costly.

Stain Resistant Furniture For Your Lifestyle

England Furniture Stain Resistant Fabrics with Livesmart Technology

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.
