  • Flexsteel Leather Color Options Add A Bit Of Dash When Shopping For Fashionable Furniture

    Frequently, when considering the color of a  leather upholstered piece of furniture, black and brown may be what the floor model is showing, and what comes immediately to mind. It seems that showroom floors have trained us to think that these are the primary colors available from the manufacturer. Sometimes the color options are indeed limited to two or three options.
    With a wider choice color spectrum, the order turns into a special order. This affects the length of time of the order. When ordering Flexsteel color options, the special order takes 10-12 weeks for delivery.
    But having the color of your choice on your furniture may be worth the wait. Otherwise, if the color is in stock, normally one color, the order can be placed with the regular ordering time.
    The 16 colors that Flexsteel makes available are:
    Light gray
    Cobalt blue
    Wedgwood blue
    Saddle brown
    Dark brown
    Envision and apply these colors to fashionable models such as the tango, the foxtrot, the cakewalk, the jitterbug, the boogie woogie, and the samba.
    When reading a display card or tear sheet in the store, know the difference between some color being shown in a certain color and a color being actually stocked in a color. There is a difference. The first is a special order. The second is a regular order. Both of these have different delivery times.
    Some practical illustrations of a Flexsteel furniture models available in 16 colors are a sofa, a recliner, a love seat, a swivel glider, a chair and ottoman, and a swivel chair.
    Let's look at at typical number that would be attached when selecting such furniture.
    1711-014-52            The 1711 refers to the model # (which has names like samba, foxtrot, etc..   The 014-52 refers to the Flexsteel Latitudes Collection color #.
    These are examples of other color numbers attached to models:
    1705-014-81   foxtrot in camel leather
    1695-014-21 foxtrot in kiwi leather
    1709-014-02 jitterbug in charcoal leather
    1720-014-86 boogie woogie in stone leather
    1752c-014-64 samba in tomato leather

  • Furniture Legs

    When a fine piece of leather or upholstered furniture gets inspected, one of the last things that are noticed are the legs of the piece. Furniture legs are one of the most important elements of furniture design, but one of the most underrated, or overlooked by the shopping customer. Not only do furniture legs add character to the piece through the decoration that most of them receive, but they are the foundational parts that add stability, the ability to move, and what determines heigth. The design of a chair for instance requires that chairs have stretchers. Stretchers are those bracing bars, that can be decorated as well as the furniture, that stretch across and connect to the other legs of the chair or stool. Because chair legs are designed differently with different styles, stretchers have traditionally been most required. The support of humans  is of great importance, as chairs need to withstand the many different sizes of people that sit on them. Some furniture pieces have casters on them. Casters are the metal attachment to the furniture that houses wheels, if the furniture is moveable.


    You seen those signs. Half-garage sale, half-estate sale. Maybe a green neon sign on paperboard tacked on a telephone pole. Or maybe its a small sign along the side of the road and you are not sure where the road or the possible sale may lead. (These are not always bad, as you may find an antique gem, in the least suspecting place.) Maybe its a sign that looks more like a sign you see on a kid's lemonade stand. A furniture sale sign sometimes is all that is needed to get the heart pumping. It may prompt you to think twice, but it also may prompt you to hit a deal on the way home, hopefully clearance, at an excellent price, to surprise your family. Furniture sale. Just two words is sometimes all it takes.

    You've heard those announcers announcing furniture sales. Thirty percent off. No payments for 6 months. 10% off of the 30. Another 5% off the 10. You start to wonder where furniture is that does not need heavy advertising.

    Furniture sale. It can be like a mid-way hawker or it can be like a radio commercial prompting you to try one more lazy Saturday afternoon to fight the crowds at the mall or find a place.  Whatever type of furniture sale it happens to be, there is that chance that you may find that one great find. So a furniture sale is more than just a gimmick, it is an institution.

  • Chicago Rooms' Furniture Set

    A Chicago rooms' furniture set can expand to include furniture accents and accessories.

    A furniture set  can be matching pieces, yet that is not a requirement for the definition. A furniture set can be determined by a commonality in design. Sometimes, furniture is referred to as a suite, pronounced suit. A set by its definition is a group of things that are included or related to each other. A set is not necessarily determined by the proximity in which the pieces are placed to one another. So pieces in a set can still maintain a connection as a set.

    If you go shopping for a furniture set, you may see several sets displayed side by side. Sometimes these sets are grouped according to room. Many stores try to recreate the look of a room by staging sets of furniture within the room. This way, the store is not only a store, but an environment that approximates the home. But it is not only retailers that are interested in presenting a furniture as a set.

    When you get all the pieces home, you will be looking for a way to make the furniture make sense in the space you have planned for it. This involves seeing the pieces as a set. Most likely, you will have pieces that comprise a set, and perhaps more a few more pieces that loosely relate to the set, such as a nightstand, or an end table.

    One question that will arise is: Is it good to break up a set? In most cases, no. But you may have situations in which you want to use some pieces from the set in another room. This is perfectly acceptable. This showcases the versatility of some sets. With most cases, however, sets will be best left together, so that their unity can be expressed as a strength.

    With purchasing a furniture set, you will come across different pricing structures. These pricing structures may even discount the set in relation to the individual prices. With Cheny Furniture's pricing structure, there is a discounted group price. Any piece that you purchase individually after the group price items, will also be calculated at a discounted price like the group price items. This could be different from a price for buying just an individual piece of the set.

    The items that fall outside the category of set are called accessories. Sometimes, they may be called accents. Other times these small appointments may be referred to details or elements, in a design sense. With modular sets, there is an actual connection between the pieces. These are highly popular in the flexibility that they give in creating a variety of configurations. These configurations create new sets. Not only does this give a new look to the room, configuring a set in a new manner may help with wear patterns, accessibility considerations, traffic flow in the room, or even allow for possibilities of putting a piece of the set in an area that was obstructed by a wall, an entrance, or some other fixture in the room.

    Manufacturers make sets to make the pieces in the set look like they belong to each other. Sometimes, they refer to the sets as a collection. Within a collection, there may be different models, offering leather, fabric, or color options. The term set is a fairly defined term. It refers to pieces in a manner that tell someone that this is all that is included.  The boundaries of a set are defined, but this does not mean that other things can compliment the set. If you had a dark cherry bedroom set, with matching dresser, chest, mirror, you may also find a picture frame that is dark cherry that works very well with the set. The picture frame may not be part of the set, but it has a quality, characteristic, or attribute that will go with the set nicely.

    In this respect, it is important to not confine your thinking to the strict limits of what a set is. You  may find pieces that break the rules, but somehow fit. You also may find that two or three furniture sets are too similar to each other, and it would then be important to mix up the set styles, so that you could bring some cohesiveness to each room.

    Furniture sets, because of their sometimes extreme size, also require some thought about transporting them. Opting for a delivery option may be the best route to go, but assembled pick-up can be the best if the furniture set is small.

    The challenge with furniture is maintenance. A lot of it can be required if not done correctly.  When this happens, it is no longer maintenance that is the issue. It's called damage, deterioration, and destruction. Well, you do not want this to happen. And therein lies the problem. You know that furniture maintenance is an on-going demand of attention requiring consistency, vigilance, and a commitment to keeping your investment in good condition. The concept of preventative maintenance is the best approach to this challenge.


    This category of product requires special attention, not necessarily more after-the-fact maintenance, but more fore-thought on how to best protect its natural qualities, and this includes how the furniture will be treated in its normal course of use.. By using the recommended cleaners and agents on leather, by following manufacturer cleaning codes on upholstered goods, and by testing in inconspicuous places first, you can avoid a lot of headaches later. A leather such as Nubuck, a suede-like leather with a velvet feel and brushed appearance,  requires a bit more maintenance because of its napped surface. As it is a more expensive leather than lower-grain leathers, it is worth maintaining, such as vacuuming it once-a-week.


    These are products that are recommended by actual furniture makers. Individual products or a Guardsman Furniture Care Kit comprised of many of these products are available.

    Wood Polish Lemon Fresh Revitalizes Enhances Preserves
    Wood Polish Woodland Fresh Revitalizes Enhances Preserves
    Wood Polish Cream Protects against sun damage Enhances beauty of wood Preserves beauty of wood
    Scratch Cover Dark Woods Rejuvenates finishes on wood furniture
    Scratch Cover Light Woods

    Lemon Oil Lemon Revitalizes UV Sunblock Cleaning
    Dusting cloths Reusable Grabs dust
    Fabric Protector For fabric and upholstery Soils Spills stains
    Wood Cleaner Purifies Freshens
    Filler Sticks/ Touch-Up Markers Deep scratches Gouges Nail holes Touch ups
    Leather  Protector Protects by creating a shield Against aging Stains that cause damage
    Ink Remover Removes from leather/vinyl Ink erases Lipstick erases
    Stain Remover Fabric upholstery Tough stains When your fabric needs first aid
    Leather Protector Wipes Step 2 Protects from premature aging Damaging stains


    You will see the following terms on the Service Contract for Protection Plans, such as the 5-Yer Guardsman Gold Furniture Protection Plan.

    Odors Defects
    Scuffing Flaws in the fabric
    Pilling Punctures
    Fraying Storage damage
    Joints that loosen Moving damage
    Stains Delivery damage
    Cracking of leather or vinyl Installation damage
    Peeling of leather or vinyl Loss of foam
    Fading Repeated use
    Color Loss Grease
    Damage Blood
    Pet stains Tar
    Seam separation Permanent marker
    Body oil Food
    Agents from the outside environment : mud, dirt, the usual suspects Residue
    Activities that cause cuts, tears, rips, Blemishes and other minor scratches
    Ink Fingerprints
    Infestation Oily films
    Loss of resiliency of springs Beverages
    Odors Urine
    Scuffing Major scratches

    Now you see the many ways the condition of your furniture can be compromised. These are enough to give you nightmares. But with a little attention to the common aspect to these problems, you can discover that it has happened to others before that have had furniture, and that there are industry solutions and manufacturer suggested cleaning methods to address these problems. These are the approaches to really pay attention to so that you can avoid costly mistakes resulting from experimentation with other self-made solutions. One thing is for sure, most problems that require furniture maintenance start small and tend to worsen, accumulate,  without some preventative action.
