England Furniture Reviews the Tara Collection

England Furniture Tara Collection

There are so many furniture options out there, so it’s important to ensure you are investing in quality when making your purchase. Contemporary furniture, like the sleek pieces in the new Tara Collection is often mimicked by manufacturers who use cheap materials and mass produce identical products. England Furniture takes pride in their made-in-America furniture, using high quality wood, springs and fabrics. Here, England Furniture reviews what’s inside their high-quality sofas, chairs, loveseats and ottomans.

The frame is made from frame-grade plywood, which has few voids between its layered panels. It’s a stronger material that’ll last decades longer than bargain options. Under the cushions hide narrow sinuous springs, instead of the wide loop springs other manufacturers use. These springs offer more support and a longer lasting seat.

The arms are coated in a thin layer of sheeted fiber, in addition to two inches of foam. Other furniture companies use only fiber to cover their arms. The foam core of our cushions is much larger than many other brands, and is wrapped in a fiber wrap. Often, other manufacturers cut corners and wrap in a higher pile of fiber to give the appearance of a comfortable cushion. Theirs last only a year, while ours are warrantied for ten years.

All these elements come together in the Tara collection, which includes a sofa, loveseat, chair, and ottoman. These pieces can come in styles with a nailhead trim for added detail. The high legs are a hallmark of contemporary design.

How to Identify Different Leather Types

Larae Cocktail Ottoman EnglandFurniture

When you’re looking for a quality leather product, don’t be fooled by fake fabrics. Plastic-based materials attempt to emulate leather, but they don’t last nearly as long. Especially when it comes to furniture, you want to make sure you’re purchasing a piece that will last for years. The England Furniture Company has a variety of leathers to choose from, in different colors and textures.

This specific piece is the Larae Cocktail Ottoman with Nails 3N07ALN, a piece that comes only in leather, in the color of your choice. It’s lined with a simple, yet sophisticated nailhead trim and features tall turned wooden legs. Many pieces in various collections can be chosen in either fabric or leather, depending on the style. Here, England Furniture reviews the four main types of leather.

Full Grain
The highest quality leather, this type includes all parts of the natural grain. Because of this, it’s more expensive to treat, and thus, it costs more. It’s the most durable type of leather because it contains the strongest part of the hide. This type of leather typically looks more beautiful with age, as it develops a unique look specific to your item.

Top Grain
Being the second highest quality, the outer layer of the hide is removed. It’s thinner than full grain and since it’s easier to work with, it’s less expensive. This type of leather has a more uniform surface than full grain, so some people enjoy it more.

Split Leather
This type of leather is made by splitting the bottom part from the grain. This type of leather includes suede, which is textured to have a napped finish with a small pile.

Bonded Leather
This type of leather is actually only 17% real leather–it’s a processed leather product. Bonded leather is manufactured by taking scraps of real leather, grounding them up, and adhering them to a layer of polyurethane. It is lower quality, and thus, less costly.

7 Fantastic Ways to Use Ottomans!

parsons-storage-ottomoan-england-furniture

The ottoman has its roots in 18th century Turkey, at a time when the country was part of the Ottoman Empire.  These versatile pieces of furniture eventually made their way into European parlors and eventually to America.  The word “ottoman” can different images depending on the time and place, but it generally conveys a picture of a footstool or padded bench that is often used with a chair.

 

Today’s ottomans can be used for a wide variety of purposes and England Furniture invites you to consider our line of England Furniture ottomans, as well as some creative ways you can use ottomans in your favorite rooms.

Rest Your Weary Feet

Beginning with the obvious, ottomans are a great way to sit back and relax.  You can pair an ottoman with a comfy chair and use it as a place to rest your feet.  Be certain the ottoman your purchase not only matches the style and design of your chair, but is the right dimensions to be used by various people in the house for relaxation.

 

Extra Seating

Ottomans can be used as extra seating when the sofa and loveseats are filled up, and the rest of the chairs are already occupied.  Because ottomans are often quite small, they’re easy to tuck them away when you don’t need extra seats.

 

Extra Storage

Almost every living room or family room needs extra places to store items such as remote controls, toys, reading glasses and books, notepads, movies or games, etc.  Today’s ottomans include beautiful ottomans with a hinged top that provides a handy way to store items while also being able to disguise its storage abilities.

 

Coffee Table or End Table

Many people use ottomans as a primary or secondary table in the living room or family room.  Flat-topped ottomans are best suited for this purpose, but you can utilize most ottomans by placing a serving tray (or even a beautiful piece of wood) on the top of your ottoman.

 

Children’s Area

In relation with the “ottoman as table” idea above, some people use ottomans as a kind of kid’s table or deck.  This allows your child to have their own special area to play or study.  Storage ottomans can allow them to keep their favorite toys nearby.  If you plan to use your ottoman for this purpose, make sure you consider kid-friendly fabrics that can be easily cleaned.

 

Pet Beds

Some individuals, particularly those who may live in a small space, place a blanket on their ottoman and use it as a resting place for their cats or dogs.  Spot and Mrs. Kitty Boo-Boo need a place to rest too!

 

Show off Your Style

Finally, ottomans are increasingly becoming the centerpieces of some living room designs.  They’re a great way to add a clear indicator of the design, style, or colors you’re seeking to use in your living room or family room.  Ottomans can look casual in a rustic room, playful in a modern family room, or extravagant in a formal sitting room. The choice is yours!
