How can I care for my upholstered England Furniture product?

They are a number of ways you can maintain, care for and clean your upholstered England Furniture products. Routine care can notably increase the longevity of any upholstered fabrics and it all begins with weekly occurrences of vacuuming and brushing. In fact, the accumulation of dust and dirt can actually produce an abrasive action accelerating the deterioration of the fibers within the yarns that make up your upholstered fabric. Many upholstered England Furniture selections have reversible cushions. Rotating your cushions is another simple way to care for your furniture. Finally the careful application of fabric protection solutions can compliment your routine care and cleaning. Visit our England Furniture Care and Maintenance website for more information about protection solutions as well as general guidelines on caring for your England Furniture products.

What is the history of England Furniture?

The England Furniture journey began in 1964 when Dwight England and his brother joined forces with their father to start a new furniture company. The early years of the company had only 3 employees.  By 1974 England Furniture was employing the third generation of the England family.  In 1984 England Furniture saw continued success by working hard around-the-clock. England/Corsair started offering delivery promises for their products. While other companies were still taking six to twelve weeks to commit to deliveries England was able to deliver full truck loads of furniture within two weeks. That same year England received the “Entrepreneurial Company of the Year” award and grew to over two hundred employees.  In 1987 Rodney England (son of Dwight England) took over as President of England Furniture.   By 1994 England Furniture became part of the La-Z-Boy family.  They also hit a landmark for sales this fiscal year by reaching the $106 million mark. The same year “Custom Comfort Centers” were formed showcasing England furniture to customers.   In 2004 England opened their first “Custom Furniture Direct” stores.  These freestanding stores broke new ground by offering their customers delivery to their homes within 21 for any frame or fabric.

Should I rotate my seat cushions? Why is it useful?

Most England Furniture style selections with an upholstered fabric cover have reversible cushions as a standard provision.  Reversible cushions provide substantial benefit to the longevity and functionality of not only the cover fabric but also the cushion foam. Turning the cushions over and rotating the position provides for an even distribution of any evidence of wear that may accumulate with time and use. Compression of the seat cushions and force of use may generate an ever so slight shift in the cover fabric.  Over time this shift may distort the original appearance of the cushion.  Turning the cushion over and utilizing the opposite side reverses the effect and helps to restore the original shape.  Cushion rotation should be made bimonthly.  More frequent rotations are beneficial with conditions of heavy use.
