Furniture Shopping from Home

Many of us are still spinning from the COVID-19 crisis and learning how to take care of our needs from home.  It is important that we all do our part to slow the spread of this awful disease.  We like so many of you are counting the days, till we can re-open our doors and celebrate with our community getting through this.  In the meantime, we are here to help you with all your furniture and mattress needs.

Great Time to Freshen Up Your Home

Nothing like a quarantine to make you really second guess that sofa, or dinette, or mattress – huh?  We’ve always said – your home should be your retreat – we all work hard and when you come home to relax, you should enjoy your space!  There is no better time to refresh your home and pull together a look that gives you rest and a place you enjoy calling home.

While our stores are closed – we have lots of items available ONLINE and will continue to enhance our features to help you have a better shopping experience.  This includes using social media sites like Instagram and Facebook, doing live video presentations, offering online chats, and personalized shopping appointments via phone to help you find just what you need!  We’re here to help and together as a community we will get through this!

We made a list of some things we think will help you with your online shopping adventures!

Measure, Measure, Measure

When you are shopping online or in our furniture stores, it is SO IMPORTANT to measure your space!  We are the experts of what we sell, but you are the expert of your home.  Important things to consider:

  • Width/Height of Doorways
  • Narrow Hallways
  • Drop or Low Ceilings
  • Turns and Difficult Walkways to Angle Furniture
  • Flow and Traffic of Your Rooms
  • Other Furniture in the Room

Width of doorways is probably one of the trickiest.  If you are in a newer home, most likely you have larger doorways.  Older homes and town homes can have narrow hallways, difficult turns, and narrow doorways.  It is important to know your space and take all necessary measurements.  Other things to consider is the way you want traffic to flow in your room (how people walk and move around) where will the TV go, are their windows or doorways you need to consider?  Where are your outlets, etc etc.  Are there other pieces in room you want to work around or keep?


Sometimes it is difficult to get a good idea of color or fabrics when you are shopping online.  We are here to help!  We’ll be working to enhance some of our product descriptions by adding live videos, pictures from our showrooms, and helping you by offering personalized shopping appointments over the phone.  The best way to choose colors is often by looking at colors within your room/space and finding a focal point for inspiration.

Don’t Forget the Extras, the Sizzle!

We have a LOT of FURNITURE on our website, but not all our accessories and art, rugs, are there.  We will be making efforts to update some of those categories, but in the meantime, give us a call!  We’ve got some gorgeous and colorful home decor, wall art, plush accent rugs, that are sure to add WOW FACTOR to any room.  Don’t forget those extras that really pull a room together.  We’ll send you pictures and help you find all the items you need :).
