We are happy to see people visiting the site. Let us know in the comments if you are interested in anything specific to add to the site.


England Furniture – Born In The USA

Since 1964, England Inc. has been building quality upholstered furniture in the foothills of East Tennessee.  England was co-founded by Charles, Eugene, and Arnold Dwight England whose goal was to provide employment to the people of Appalachia.

From humble beginnings, England has grown to employ over 1,000 people in multiple factories all located in East Tennessee.  Having long been recognized for quality and its rapid delivery system, England attracted the attention of La-Z-Boy Incorporated.  In 1995, England was acquired by La-Z-Boy and integrated into the La-Z-Boy family of companies.

With over 400 fabrics and leathers to choose from, England is known for providing consumers choice without customary wait.  England employs its own fleet of tractor/trailers to deliver upholstered product throughout the United States and Canada.  England’s rapid delivery model allows consumers to choose their own style and fabric and receive product in as few as 21 days*.


State of the Art Cut and Sew Facility (150,000 Sq. Feet)

England Furniture - Cut And Sew 01

Our production process begins at this state of the art cut and sew facility. England furniture has invested over one million dollars in computer controlled automated cutting equipment. This equipment helps us insure that our patterns are cut with precision and that our stripes and plaids line up better than most higher priced brands in the industry.

England Furniture cuts all fabrics using highly precise computer driven equipment.  Our high ply cutters are designed to cut 90 layers of fabric.  This type of technology cuts all fabric to exact specifications, with no variation in layers.  Our single ply cutter is designed to cut stripes and plaids to perfection.  This technology allows England Furniture to provide perfectly matched stripes and plaids in each production run.

Frame Processing Facility (175,000 Sq. Feet)

England Furniture Company - Frames 01

England furniture uses three quarter and seven eights inch, frame grade plywood in its frame construction, no oriented strand board (OSB). We reinforce all our frames with generous amounts of hardwood lumber. Our frame construction is among the best in the industry. That’s why we offer a lifetime frame warranty on all the units we produce.

England Furniture employs 14 computerized routers to insure that every frame is cut to exact specifications.  Our high quality furniture grade plywood and our frame design, with interlocking construction, ensure maximum strength and durability. We back all our frames with a lifetime warranty.

England arms are engineered to last.  Note the placement and number of hardwood arm sticks in the England arm assembly shown below (left). England uses 3/4 and 7/8 inch precision cut plywood reinforced with generous quantities of hardwood. Other brands make extensive use of oriented strand board.  Guide notches (A ) insure proper placement of arm sticks.

England furniture uses hardwood lumber to connect sinuous wire springs in our frames.  Spring clips are applied by computer controlled clipping machines that ensure our spring spacing is constant.  We double spring the ends of each sofa and loveseat to prevent fall off at the arm of the unit. We use heavy gauge wire springs. With over 40 pounds of torque per spring, our frames are extremely well built. Note (in the pictures below) how spring rails are recessed into perpendicular joints. These construction techniques allow us to offer a lifetime frame warranty on all England product!

England Furniture Reviews Living Room Accessories

There are often a lot of items that can go into a living room and it’s important that they are arranged in a well-proportioned way. After you’ve arranged your living room furniture, you’ll need to begin the process of adding accessories in a balanced fashion. Here are a few tips to consider as you accessorize your living room.



  • If possible, multiply the diagonal width of the screen by three to determine the optimal viewing distance.
  • When trying to decide where to put your television remember that the bottom of the screen should be at chest level when you’re seated. While hanging a television above a mantel or on a wall is a bit popular, it’s not the best place and can cause you to strain your neck.

Window Treatments

  • When hanging a drapery rod it should be installed at least 2″ above the window frame and anywhere between 6″ and 16″ beyond each side.
  • Drapes and curtains should always kiss the floor. A very common decorating mistake is to hang curtains that are too short and don’t reach the floor.


  • The most common places to hang artwork is above your sofa. If you’re going this route make sure to get a piece that isn’t too large or too small. The piece of art should be about two-thirds the width of the sofa.
  • To prevent the art from being too low, hang the bottom of the frame about 8″ to 10″ from the top of the sofa back.
  • If you want to use a few smaller pieces in a group the same rule more or less applies. Just be sure that the space between each frame is the same (around 2″ to 3″ is preferable).
  • Whenever you’re hanging art remember that it should be at eye-level. Many people make the mistake of hanging art too high.


  • If you’re hanging sconces on either side of a mirror or artwork be sure to leave enough space for the piece in the center to breathe. The amount will depend on the size of the space, but be sure not to overcrowd.
  • The rules for hanging sconces are fairly similar to those for hanging art. The placement will always depend on the size of the wall, but you want to be careful not to hang them too high. Just above eye-level is ideal.

Living Rooms: A Reflection of the Home’s Soul!

You’re living room says a lot about you! It often sets the mood for the entire home and it should be a reflection of your personal tastes. If our eyes are the doorways to our soul, the living room is the doorway to the home’s soul and it deserves some extra attention.

Some people consider their living room in in formal terms, perfect at all times, to be entered and used only when guests come to call. For others the living room is a comfortable family gathering place.

A formal living room, historically referred to as a drawing room or parlor, often showcases the homeowner’s finest possessions. The décor is often symmetrical—a sofa with painting above, flanked by two end tables topped by lamps. Formal window treatments of luxurious fabrics trimmed with braid and fringe, and perfectly set pairs of occasional chairs and tables follow traditional rules of decorating. Few homes these days have space for such a perfect (and often useless) room that is more to be looked at than used.

While retaining certain elements such as beautiful millwork or lush fabrics, the more casual living room has lighter window treatments and more comfortable furniture. Studied symmetry has given way to softer lines, fewer rules, and more color.

A more casual family room style of living room has a character of nonchalance. While furniture and fabrics should be coordinated, there are few rules. Choices are governed by practicality. Furniture selection and placement is less structured. Seating around a TV is often necessary, with a table for casual eating. In today’s home, the living room may even have a computer center, so a desk may have a place of prominence.

If you’re looking to give your living room a “psychological makeover” that transforms the space without spending a fortune consider these tips:

It doesn’t have to look perfect. Don’t strive for “magazine perfection” but rather a deep, gut-level feeling of identification and comfort.

Try a new color of paint. Certain shades have universal associations. Explore the psychology of colors and choose the color choices that reflect the mood you’re trying to create.

Place beloved objects in the room. Place items in the living room that remind you of happy experiences and remove objects with bad associations. Only keep things that trigger happy memories.

Let the living-room space suit your family. Perhaps your idea of the ideal living room isn’t the same as your spouse or partner. Try to work something out: Communication and compromise is key.

Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Decide which personality type you have and lay out your living room accordingly. Extroverts need stimuli like a television in their living rooms; introverts need more of a sense of refuge and quiet.

Get as much sunlight into your living room as possible. Sunlight is a proven antidepressant.

Make sure your furniture is the right size. If you’re not tall, don’t get a couch that’s very high off the ground and makes you feel short.

Why Big Families NEED Sectional Sofas

Have you ever tried to watch a movie in your living room with your entire family?  Are some of your loved ones sitting on the floor? Many people struggle with the right amount of seating for their living rooms, especially if they have a larger family gathering at once. That’s why sectionals are the perfect sofas!  A sectional sofa can give you more space in your living room and make family nights a lot more comfortable. They even great for sleepovers!

A big sectional couch may scare parents because it can be a large space to clean. This is a huge misconception.  Sectional sofas are actually quite easy to clean. Instead of moving from sofa to sofa, you can do a huge sweep around clean and get it done all in one stop.


England Furniture Landry Sectional
