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.
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.

It will also give you an opportunity to look at the Pinnacle Studio pieces we have available, and it’s a guarantee that your head is going to be turning. Nearly everyone that walks by our Pinnacle Studio displays stops in their tracks, feasts their eyes on these magnificent furniture pieces, and admires them. They can’t help but take in the craftsmanship, the style, the colours, and the beauty of Pinnacle Studio furniture.
To say Pinnacle Studio furniture is popular here at Guaranteed A Fine Furniture is an understatement. Many of our customers want these fine pieces in their family rooms, living rooms, bedrooms, and even the spaces of their office. With Pinnacle Studio furniture being in such high demand, we wanted to make our Pinnacle Studio pieces even more special.
That’s why we are pleased to announce that when you purchase a Pinnacle Studio piece, you will also save on the HST!
Yes, you read that correctly: when you purchase any Pinnacle Studio piece, you will not have to pay the HST on your purchase. It’s tax season, and whether you are getting a tax refund or you have to pay in to the CRA, we want to give everyone the opportunity to save big on Pinnacle Studio furniture. Whether you have more money in your pocket thanks to your tax refund or your tax balance has left you with less than you had yesterday, everyone deserves a chance to save on this amazing furniture.
Whether you are looking for stylish, simple, and beautiful furniture for your family room (Pinnacle’s Cuddle line) or you need bold, professional furniture that gives your spaces an added dose of confidence (Pinnacle’s M-Series), we urge you to stop by and experience the beauty of Pinnacle Studio furniture. If you find something you like (and we can almost guarantee that you will), take advantage of our ‘Save the HST’ event and save even more. You’ve trusted us with supplying amazing furniture for over 50 years, and we’re proving once again why Guaranteed A Fine Furniture is the only logical place to purchase the best furniture in Windsor!
It’s with great pleasure that we announce the arrival of Pinnacle Studio to Guaranteed A Fine Furniture. A designer that provides sleek, beautiful furniture pieces designed to bridge the gap between art and functionality, Pinnacle Studio needs to be on your radar if you are in the market for a new piece of furniture. Let us introduce you to the wonder of Pinnacle Studio by reading about some of their most popular furniture lines below, and stop by our showroom to ask any questions you may have about getting Pinnacle Studio furniture into your place right away!
Designed by award-winning designer Normand Couture, Pinnacle Studio’s Cuddle line accomplishes what any Couture collection does best: it takes an artistic approach to furniture you use daily. Cuddle is the perfect example of this, as it’s the perfect everyday piece for any family or living room. Whether you are conversing with friends or family after a dinner at home or you are sitting by yourself reading a book, Cuddle makes it happen. Complete with amazing curves and an unparalleled attention to detail, this is the contemporary furniture piece you’ve been looking for!
Looking for furniture that can adapt to any room? Then you need another amazing Normand Couture furniture line: Party. Featuring a phenomenally sculpted back, arms, and leather trim, Party can give any room that bold statement you’ve been looking for. Whether you want leather furniture or something in fabric, Party offers both thanks to its dedication to flexibility and getting the most out of your spaces. It’s the perfect example of how Pinnacle Studio’s line of outstanding furniture can bring out the best in your home!
When you want to make a statement in luxurious fashion, you need to consider Pinnacle Studio’s M-Series. The M1 is a great place to start, as it makes a true statement in the space of your home (the M-Series also makes great corporate furniture). Featuring an independent head and footrest that adds to the M1’s overall look (instead of taking away from it), it’s the perfect example of what makes the M-Series so remarkable.
If you want a touch of chrome to an M-Series piece, you need to consider the M4. Rather than having furniture that has ugly, metal pieces poking out of the headrest, footrest, etc., the M4 employs chrome into the rests, making the metal actually add to the overall beauty of the furniture rather than taking away from it. Additionally, the M4 features clean lines much like the M1, so it’s truly the best of both worlds. If you want your furniture to make a presence, it’s hard to beat the M4.
Whether you are in the market to buy or you simply want to learn more about the fascinating products from Pinnacle Seating, we can help. Stop by today, and we will answer any questions you may have about these amazing pieces and more. Who knows? Your next trip to Guaranteed A Fine Furniture may result in you finding your dream furniture!
Ah, Springtime: a season that makes us ecstatic that Winter is right behind us, and excited that Summer is on the horizon. It’s a season in which everyone becomes excited about life again. It means no more gloomy days stuck inside the home, no more depressing afternoons of looking outside at the dead plant life, and most importantly, it’s the end of depressingly cold weather (that is, until the next Winter rolls around).
With so many new beginnings happening around this time each year, Spring is the perfect time to redecorate your home with the colours of the season. What colours should add to your home’s décor? Take a look at our helpful tips below. Have any questions? Stop by our showroom and ask one of our decorating experts!
Spring creates a sense of rejuvenation, rebirth, and new beginnings – so what better colour to implement into your home than green tones? Signifying the growth of grass, the reemergence of plant life, and the beautiful green crops we can start growing in our backyards, if there was ever a colour that would be the posterchild for Spring, it’s green.
It also helps that green is an extremely flexible colour. Whether you want to implement bright green tones, middle-of-the-road green tones, or even darker green tones, decorating with all types of greens is perfect for the Spring! Consider layering your décor with other colours of Spring for that perfect Springtime look!
A foundation of deep blue
Another Springtime colour that’s synonymous with the season, you need to consider adding blues – specifically the deep blue tone – into your home’s décor. It’s hard to find a colour that’s stronger yet more welcoming than deep blue; the tone says, ‘hello,’ while acting as the foundation for the other Springtime colours added to the décor. Perfect for layering with bright reds and other energetic hues, blue should be the staple of your Spring redecoration plans!
What do we look forward to the most in Spring? For most people, it’s the sunshine – so implement yellow hues into your Spring home décor plans. Yet unlike the other colours in this list, too much of the colour can actually have a negative effect on your home’s design. Yellow may be one of the best Spring colours you can add into your home’s décor, but you should use it sparingly. We suggest using yellow tones for layering rather than making it the foundation of a room. While adding a yellow picture frame or a vase can make your room ‘pop,’ painting an entire wall yellow probably isn’t a great idea.
That’s the unique yet awesome thing about yellow – you don’t have to use a lot to make a strong statement!
Yes, you read that correctly – grey tones are perfect for ringing in the new season! While greys are typically used in the colder months (i.e. fall and winter), design trends state that isn’t the case any longer. You see, grey tones make the perfect foundation for layering brighter, more traditional Spring colours on top of them. For example, consider adding a grey rug to the center of your bedroom, then decorate the rest of the room with bright, ‘Springish’ furniture into the mix, such as an orange chair, a Rose Quartz couch cover for your sofa (it’s the perfect Spring colour and Pantone’s Colour of the Year, so you have even more reason to utilize it), or simply bright, green drapes.
Grey tones bring out the very best in brighter colours. It’s perfect for adding into your home’s colour mix this Spring season, so try it out and see how it looks in your home. Chances are, you will absolutely love it!
Spring is in the air yet again – and like every year, Spring couldn’t have come sooner. It’s time to say goodbye to Winter and hello to these warmer (but likely rainier) Spring months. Although it means the weather is nicer than it’s been over the past few months, it also means it’s time for the dreaded Spring cleaning ritual.
Yes, it’s time to make your home – and especially your furniture – shine once again. But don’t fret! Simply follow our Spring cleaning tips below, and make your furniture shine like new along with the rest of your home!
Work from top-to-bottom
Now let’s talk about dust – and let us tell you, plenty of it has built up over the Winter season! Before you start focusing on cleaning other aspects of the home (specifically, your furniture’s upholstery), clean your home top-to-bottom – or, from the highest point of your home’s spaces (e.g. the ceiling, ceiling fans, light fixtures, etc.) to the lower points of the home (e.g. your flooring). It makes sense when you think about it. With all of the dust, grime, and dirt being cleaned in your spaces, you don’t want to ‘dirty up’ the areas you’ve already cleaned just because you cleaned your floors before focusing on the higher points of your house.
Clean from top-to-bottom, and you will only have to clean everything once!
Clean your upholstery
While you have been cooped up for the Winter, your furniture’s upholstery has absorbed an abundance of oil, dirt, grime, and all of those other nasty things. This includes using appropriate wood cleaning substances to clean your wood furniture (and using wood cleaning supplies that will not harm said furniture) and intensely vacuuming your furniture’s upholstery via a carpet cleaner (or a variant of it). Moreover, be sure to clean every inch of your floors – especially under your furniture.
Of course, not all furniture can be cleaned in the same manner. Stop by our showroom today and let us know what type of furniture you have in your own. This will allow us to tell you exactly how to properly clean it remains undamaged.
Still not feeling comfortable? Hire a professional to do it for you. After your furniture has been cleaned, be sure to open your windows to speed up the drying process (which can mean the difference between your furniture taking hours or days to be completely dried and ready for you to sit on it).
De-clutter your home
You would be surprised how many unneeded items you accrue during the Winter: old magazines, mail you haven’t sorted, the list goes on and on. These items typically litter our family rooms, living rooms – essentially, the areas we sit around the most. Organizing and throwing away the clutter around your furniture is one of the best ways to invigorate your home and make your spaces feel like new again. Spring is the season for rejuvenation, and de-cluttering is the best way to bring this feeling to your home!
Are you considering decorating your home, yet you can’t settle on a particular style? Then you need to choose one of the biggest trends in decorating that isn’t going away anytime soon: the urban lifestyle look. A style that is exciting, fresh, and bubbling with personality, it’s a particular style of decorating that adds new life to any home. Stop by and visit our showroom at Guaranteed A Fine Furniture today, and browse our fine selections of urban lifestyle furniture (and look forward to our new Urban Studio section – coming soon!). Still on the fence? Below are a few reasons why the urban lifestyle look needs to be implemented into your home today!
There is something truly timeless about the bold, brown tones of a wood coffee table and the strong, brass look of a hanging living room mirror. Although many of these items were in people’s homes over a hundred years ago, they still have a sense of class and style that transcends both the years and fashions. These items look just as amazing today as they did back then, and all signs point to this being the case decades from now as well. While it’s great to update your home based on a modern trend, longevity of that style is vital: thankfully, the urban lifestyle look will be around for years to come.
Rugged yet unique
Most of us would love for our home décor to make a bold statement. We don’t want weak décor around the while, nor do we want our guests to think that we don’t have strong decorating sense. The urban lifestyle look fixes all of those things. Implementing a rugged, wooden chair or a metallic dining room set is one of the best ways to give your home the strong look you’ve been looking for. It’s also a great, rugged look that is always eye catching, making it worthy of your consideration.
When someone walks into your home and notices your dining room set has a bench instead of two chairs, it’s only natural that everyone asks you about it. The beauty of the urban lifestyle look is that while it’s trendy, timeless, and rugged, it’s also very simple by design. It doesn’t take much effort to transform your home from appearing out-of-date to capturing the essence of a log cabin or farm house – plus, it will make your guests feel very comfortable. Want to bring positive vibes to your home? Decorate with the urban lifestyle look.
We’ve hinted at this point already, but we need to confirm it: the urban lifestyle look is arguably the most flexible trend in home décor. By simply adding furniture that looks worn and weathered, you will be bringing a look to your home that is absolutely stunning. Use your imagination, stop by our store, and let your mind wander with the possibilities!
One of the hottest trends in home décor is also one of the most flexible looks you can give your home. It’s also a trend that has the longest shelf life, and if you want a look that is going to continue to look just as stunning years from now as it will today, then the urban lifestyle look is for you. Here at Guaranteed A Fine Furniture, we are on the cusps of opening a new section of our store called ‘Urban Studio’ – the destination if you want that rugged, classic look. Until then, take a look at a few of our urban furniture below, and get a head start on decorating today!
Dining room set with a pew
We mentioned this in a previous post, but it bears mentioning again – especially since this is such a splendid set. If you haven’t seen our rustic dining room set that features a pew that feels right at home in a Sunday morning church service 50-years ago, we urge you to stop by our show and check it out. Featuring a beautiful, brow hue, stellar craftsmanship in regards to the legs of the table (the designs of the legs must be seen to fully appreciate), and an overall look that feels right at home in a log cabin, this rustic, wooden dining room set is the perfect addition to your urban lifestyle décor.
All-metal dining room set
Want evidence the rustic lifestyle look is flexible? Then check out our all-metal dining room set that has a true, 50’s vibe to it. Especially if you’re looking for something beyond the rustic, wood look, this metal set is not only perfect for that urban look, but it’s also a classy addition to roughly any home’s dining room as well. If you want a bold, strong dining room set that is certain to make an impression, this is the one for you!
Rustic shelf/mirror combo
Enough dining room sets – let’s look at a unique addition that is sure to make your home feel like a cottage. We have a rustic shelf/mirror combo that truly feels like it belongs in the film The Hobbit, giving it a cozy, raw feeling to your home that’s difficult to replicate. This shelf is perfect for those little knickknacks you haven’t found a place for, and because it also features a mirror, it’s a great way to make your room look bigger by strategically bouncing light off of it. It looks like a window but doubles as a shelf and mirror, making it a truly compelling-yet-functional decoration!
Do you want to give your home a makeover – perhaps a look that’s modern yet rugged and timeless? Then prepare yourself, as Guaranteed A Fine Furniture is getting ready to reconfigure a section of their store and naming it, ‘Urban Studio.’ Your one-stop shop for a rugged, timeless, and chic look for your home’s spaces, it’s the best way to give your home a touch of class while giving it a modern look.
But you don’t have to wait until then. We already have a few items in our inventory that give your home that urban lifestyle feeling you’ve been looking for. Check out a few of our many items below, and start the process of transforming your home today!
Unique, rugged twist on dining room sets
Not all dining room sets are created equally. Moreover, not all dining room sets will give your dining room that unique, rugged look that you are looking for. If you want a unique dining room set that will give your space a classic, rugged look from days gone by, then we have the perfect thing for you: a dining room set complete with a pew-like bench!
Pews are not perfect for just sitting in church – they’re also extremely functional for the dining room. Rugged yet modern, it’s the perfect way to ensure you have enough seating while giving your space a unique look that guests won’t be able to stop talking about – and if you have children? They will love sitting on this bench!
Rustic end tables
Looking for an extra end table? Don’t simply buy a generic end table that’s going to be quickly overlooked by guests – buy one that really ‘pops!’ The beauty of the urban lifestyle look is that it’s flexible and perfect for any room of the home – especially when it comes to end tables. If you want an end table that is going to look absolutely magnificent and beautiful with a rustic touch, we have plenty for you to choose from!
Coffee tables from a bygone era
Nothing sets the tone of a living room and a family room quite like a coffee table. It’s the easiest way to bring a touch of elegance to the room, and one of the best ways to make a statement. Luckily, we have plenty of coffee tables that give off that cool urban lifestyle vibe you are looking for; bold, rugged, rustic, yet timeless. Stop by our showroom today, and let us assist you in finding the perfect urban lifestyle décor!
Whether you have children, pets, a combination of the two, or you simply want furniture that is guaranteed to be washable and durable, you need upholstery that can stand the test of time. Furniture is an investment, and it is imperative that you can properly maintain your investment so it can be a part of your family for years to come. Moreover, you need upholstery that can withstand anything your home throws at it: accidental spills, claw marks, or the occasional ‘impulsive artistic endeavor’ on the side of your furniture, courtesy of your youngest child.
When you need upholstery of this caliber, you need Sunbrella – and that’s why here at Guaranteed A Fine Furniture, we are pleased to feature them.
Originally designed for outdoor use, the great minds at Sunbrella have brought their revolutionary approach to outdoor upholstery into the living room. Utilizing amazing colour and designs, the rugged nature of Sunbrella upholstery has been combined with gorgeous indoor upholstery that allows your furniture to look beautiful and elegant while being as tough as your patio furniture. When you need furniture upholstery that is protected from whatever life throws your way while ensuring the beauty remains intact, there’s arguably no better brand than Sunbrella.
Are you afraid that your little one is going to spill his/her favourite juice drink on your new furniture? With Sunbrella furniture, there’s no reason to worry. Because Sunbrella fabrics are always treated with our fluorocarbon finish, most of the liquid is repelled; for the rest of the mess, simply spot clean with a mild soap to finish the job. There’s no need to worry about your pet jumping onto your furniture’s upholstery with muddy paws or having accidents either, because thanks to Sunbrella’s amazing upholstery, cleaning and removing such eyesores is as simple as sweeping and spot cleaning.
What are you waiting for? When you need furniture that can handle anything that your family throws at it, you need the power of Sunbrella fabrics. Stop by our showroom today, and let us introduce you to the Sunbrella family!
