How To Care For Your Fine Leather Furniture

Posted on

It’s hard to find furniture that looks classier and more elegant than that of leather. From leather chairs to sofas and beyond, leather is stylish, it’s fun, and more importantly, timeless. Yet, owning leather furniture is a responsibility. To maintain its elegance, you have to provide constant care throughout its life. Luckily, taking care of leather furniture isn’t exactly a full-time job, and by following a few of our simple tips below, your furniture will continue to look immaculate.

how to clean leather furniture

Never use soap or detergent to clean

While some people claim that using mild soaps and detergents to clean leather furniture is perfectly fine, it is better to be safe than sorry and avoid soaps and detergents altogether. The reason? Because leather furniture is natural and does not replenish oils, by using even the mildest soaps and detergent, you will actually be removing the natural oils in the furniture. This will make the leather furniture brittle, dry, and even damaged over time.

Instead, purchase cleaner made solely for cleaning leather furniture. This will ensure that your leather furniture gets clean, but keeps the oils in the upholstery that allow it to continue to look beautiful. We have some of the best leather furniture cleaners in stock, so stop by our showroom to see what we have for you!

Clean spills immediately

Blot spills quickly and immediately using paper towels or an absorbent cloth. The longer you allow a spill to persist, the higher the chances that it will stain the furniture. Thus, we recommend to keeps glassware, bottles, and other things that can spill onto your furniture within arm’s reach at all times. When out of the room, ensure there is nothing around the furniture that could possibly spill onto the upholstery.

Never place leather furniture in direct sunlight

While the idea of reading a book in your new leather furniture with the sunlight shining on your through your family room’s window sounds enticing, it’s going to hurt your leather furniture over time. Constant exposure to direct sunlight will dry and crack your leather furniture’s upholstery over time – and nobody wants that!

On the other hand, you don’t want to expose your leather furniture to extremely cool temperatures, either. To that end, we recommend not sitting your leather furniture under a vent that constantly blows cold air in the Summer or next to a window that is typically drafty in the Winter. Place the leather furniture in a location where it will normally be at room temperature all year round to protect it.

For blemishes that won’t go away, hire a specialist

Sometimes, accidents happen. From pet urination to scrapes and beyond, stains can occur that are beyond your control. When this happens and you can’t get the stain out yourself with leather upholstery cleaner, it is best to bite take a deep breath and hire a professional leather upholstery experts to professionally clean the stains, scrapes, cuts, and anything else that has blemished the upholstery. While it may be a bit expensive, it’s a small price to pay to ensuring that your leather furniture looks amazing for years to come!

When Is It Time To Replace Furniture?

Posted on

If you’ve never been in this situation before, keep reading because one day, you too will find yourself in this predicament. We’re talking about the age-old question of, “does my piece of furniture need to be replaced,” and while it may seem like a pretty easy question to answer, quite often it isn’t. We find ourselves answering the question with statements such as, “I can get a few more years out of it,” or, “well, it doesn’t look that bad,” but it isn’t a definitive answer.

We’re here to cut through the clutter and help you to find an affirmative answer that cannot be disputed. Below are signs that it’s time to replace your furniture. If you find it’s time to replace your furniture? Stop by our showroom and find the perfect replacement for your old furniture!

Outdated upholstery

Are you or one of the members of your household disgusted by the outdated upholstery of your furniture piece? Sure, it may be comfortable, but if you can’t stand the look of your upholstery, it’s time to think about replacing it. There’s no reason to keep your furniture piece if it’s an outdated eyesore (no matter how comfortable it may still be), so if that’s the case, stop by today and let us help you to find the perfect replacement for your outdated piece!

Abundance of scuffs/scrapes/holes

Quality furniture is a pretty amazing thing, as it can withstand the wear-and-tear of everyday life. If you are noticing that one of your pieces has been bombarded by the woes of life – such as holes in the upholstery, scuffs on the legs, scrapes on the arms of the piece – then it’s time to think about replacing it. While your handy duct tape will certainly cover up that new hole that’s in the upholstery, it’s also going to cause your furniture to be an absolute eyesore. Put away the duct tape, and start to seriously think about replacing your furniture piece.

Padding is worn down

Perhaps you have a case of the opposite thing happening to your furniture – namely, the upholstery, arms, legs, and basically everything else looks immaculate – yet it’s no longer comfortable to sit on. If the padding has worn down and you find that sitting on your furniture is giving you a back ache, this is indisputable proof that it’s time to replace your furniture. Stop using the excuse of, “it looks brand new,” because it doesn’t feel ‘brand new.’ Swing by our showroom and let us help today!

It’s literally ‘falling apart’

If your furniture is falling apart, we’re sorry to say but it doesn’t have personality – it’s still falling apart. We get it: over time, our furniture becomes a part of us, but unfortunately a day comes when we have to say, “goodbye,” to the furniture we love. Don’t put up with furniture that is falling apart, replace it with something that’s actually functional. Stop by today, and let us introduce you to the perfect replacement for your furniture that’s on its last leg (no pun intended, of course)!

Posted on

If you think it’s difficult to add colour to your home’s spaces, think again. Adding colour to your home doesn’t have to take a lot of effort – in fact, it doesn’t even have to cost a lot of money. Below are a few tips and tricks you can use to implement loads of colour into the spaces of your home. Use them, and your home will transform from boring to fabulous in no time! If you have any questions or want to see how we can help you to add new colour to your room, stop by our showroom and let us help today!

Create a flow of colour

create a flow of colour

Not sure which colours you should add to a room? Take a look at the colours of the rooms connected to the room that needs a makeover. Decide which colour you like best from one of those rooms, and implement it in a different way. For example, if the centerpiece of the family room is a red sofa and you are wanting to add more colour to the dining room, consider adding red dining room chairs, wall art, and even multi-purpose shelves where you can hold decorative items, fine China, and so on. This will create a flow of colour that extends from one room to another; ideal if you have two linking rooms that you use for interlocked activities (e.g. eating in the dining room followed by entertaining in the family room).

Throw cushions and pillows

Want a cheap and easy way to spruce up the family room and/or living room with a splash of cool colour? Add a few throw cushions and/or pillows to the room! This simple trick can literally transform the dullest room of the home into the brightest and most colourful, and will instantly lift the mood of the room. Be sure not to add too many throw cushions/pillows to the room, as it could create a colour mess that will add more of a feeling of confusion rather than happiness. Be conservative with implementing a throw cushion and/or pillow, and if possible, use colour patterns that mesh well will the room’s current look.

Additionally, adding throw cushions/pillows is also the perfect opportunity to create a flow of colour from one room to the next. If you thought you didn’t have options before, think again!You have several ways you can decorate, so get creative!

Colourful rugs

Using the same logic behind adding throw cushions and pillows, so too can you implement rugs to add a dash of colour to the rooms of your home. Since it’s Summer, it would be a fantastic idea to add a rug that implements colours of nature – such as a rug that utilizes bright greens or dazzling yellows. Get creative with your rug as choice, because no matter which colour you choose, it’s going to make a statement!

Centerpieces with colour

Don’t be afraid to add new centerpieces to your rooms – just be sure they utilize popping colours to add flair to the room in question. Consider using metallic mirrors, colourful lamps (or any lighting fixture for that matter), decorative vases, and of course wall art that will not only give you a chance to implement new colours to your room, but will also be a talking point among your guests. As with all of our tips, get creative in your approach, and your room will feature new colours that will totally change the room’s dynamic!

Thus, it’s the perfect opportunity to not only buy them a bedroom suite that provides all of the essentials, but also ensure their bedroom suite is built to last.

70’s Furniture Trends Are Making A Serious Comeback

Posted on

It’s hard to believe it, but it’s true: the 1970’s are considered chic once again. It’s funny how trends come and go, especially since just a few years ago, the thought of trends from the 1970’s was enough to make almost anyone cringe a little. Even so, many of the trends from the decade have been given a modern facelift, creating a hybrid of unique furniture trends that’s a little modern, a little retro, but very cool.

Which modern 1970’s trends should you consider implanting into your own spaces? There are a few of them, actually. Below is everything you need to know about giving your home a retro-yet-modern facelift that is sure to impress.

Round beds

It’s a trend many thought would never return, but here it is: round beds are now in style, and they’re awesome. Out-of-the-ordinary furniture was the norm in the decade, especially in terms of curvy furniture (more on that in a moment). Alas, it’s one of the reasons why round beds were so popular, and because they’re making a comeback, we are happy to tell you that we have beautiful round beds that look like a blast from the past while remaining modern. If you have been looking for that new bed yet you want something a little different, one of our funky round beds may be perfect for your bedroom.

Bold metals

When you think about 70’s, one of the first things you probably think about is the colour of gold. Gold was everywhere in the 70’s: refrigerators, clothing, and of course, furniture upholstery. Gold isn’t the only metal that encompassed the 70’s, though: copper, brass, and other bold metals sealed their mark on the decade. Now, bold metals are back in style (thanks in part to the restoration hardware trend), making them perfect to decorate with. Consider layering bold, metal decorative pieces (such as a gold mirror or a small, brass statue) for maximum effect.

Curved furniture

Just as it happened in the 1970’s, we are growing tired of traditional furniture that have straight lines, no curves, and simply have a normal shape to them. Curvy furniture is making a big comeback; spend a few minutes in our showroom, and you will see for yourself. Curved sofas, dressers, coffee tables, the list goes on and on. ‘Curvy’ is in, so if you’re looking for something a little different for one of the rooms of your home, consider utilizing this cool trends into your home’s spaces!

Sofa beds are not just handy during the Summer, though – they’re great all-year round.

What To Look For In A Sofa Bed

Posted on

Do you plan on having company visit your home this Summer? Whether you do or you suspect that someone is going to be staying with you during the warmest months of the year, it’s a good idea to consider purchasing a sofa bed to give your guests a place to sleep. Sofa beds are not just handy during the Summer, though – they’re great all-year round. How many times have you unexpectedly had a guest, only to realize that you don’t have a comfortable space for them to sleep? Instead of giving up your bedroom and sleeping on your living room’s sofa just so they will be able to sleep in the most comfortable room in the home, give your guests a comfortable place to sleep via a sofa bed!

Buying a comfortable, quality sofa bed isn’t as easy as visiting our showroom, picking out a sofa bed that looks amazing, and getting it delivered to your home. You need to look for a few things to ensure you are purchasing the right sofa bed for your home’s spaces. Below are a few of the most important things you need to look for when buying a sofa bed for your upcoming guests.

The open/close mechanism

One of the most important aspects of any sofa bed lies in the opening/closing mechanism. A quality sofa bed shouldn’t be frustrating – opening and closing the mattress portion of the sofa bed should be as easy as opening and closing a window. It shouldn’t stick, feel flimsy, nor should you have to ‘wrestle with it’ in order to open and close it. With one quick pull and push, your sofa bed’s mattress should be able to be inserted and expanded without any problems.

Mattress quality

Another important part of purchasing a sofa bed, it’s crucial that your sofa bed’s mattress should also be very comfortable (which goes without saying). It shouldn’t just feel comfortable though: it should also support all parts of the body, from the back to the hips to the lower back and so on. While a mattress top will add a little more support to the mattress, ultimately you need to…

Test the mattress

Set up the mattress, lie down on it, and see for yourself how comfortable it can be. Don’t be shy when you go to a showroom: lie down on the mattress for a few minutes and get the full experience. Does the frame of the sofa bed stick into your back or sides? Does the mattress feel a little flat, or does it feel full, firm, and comfortable? Answer all of these questions for yourself; better yet, bring someone with you to get a second opinion. If you feel comfortable lying on the mattress for a few minutes, chances are your guests are going to have a comfortable sleep throughout the night.
