New Year, New Home

resolutions

Happy 2018, guys! We hope you all had very happy New Year’s!

At the start of each new year, we make promises to ourselves (and sometimes others) to do better or be better; to start new habits or break old ones; essentially to become a new us for the new year. The practice dates back 4,000 years to the Babylonians who celebrated their new year (in mid-March) with a HUGE 12-day festival where they made promises to the gods to pay their debts and return any borrowed objects. If they kept their word, the gods would bestow favor upon them (and if not, they’d fall out of favor – yikes!). After them came the Romans who tweaked the practice to promise good conduct for the year and to reflect back on the previous year. New year’s resolutions took a couple of more twists and turns to get from there to what we know them as now but it’s still the same basic idea – new year, new you.

We say, if you get the opportunity to start fresh in the new year, shouldn’t your home too? We think so! Reflect back on what all happened in your home in the past year and consider whether it deserves a fresh look in the new year as well. If you’re like us and think change in the new year is great, then you’re in luck because we’re starting 2018 off right with our annual WINTER HALF-OFF SALE!

That’s right, you heard us, half-off. Like, 50%. And did we mention that EVERYTHING is up to half-off? Cause it is! (Don’t say we never give you anything nice!) Plus we’re offering…*whispers* 6 months interest-free financing. We are very serious about this new year, new home thing. This means you can go wild and redecorate your living room or your bedroom or your office or your bathroom or get a new entertainment center or…or really anything! You can even just do a small facelift and grab some colorful throw pillows and rugs to help get you through a dreary winter. The store is your oyster.

So stop by one of our stores today to freshen up your home for the new year and our salespeople will help you find the PERFECT items. This is definitely one opportunity you don’t want to miss. Here’s to 2018 and all the beautiful changes it’ll bring us! (Oh, and here’s to maybe, hopefully, sticking to those resolutions.) Cheers!

New Delivery Options!

If you’ve dropped by our site lately (and if not, you should!), you’ll notice that we’ve made a few changes. We’ve streamlined our site, updated some things, and generally just made our site more epic and user-friendly. One of these things is our delivery information because we have exciting news:

You can now track your delivery on our site! Yes, we’ve joined the future and added tracking to our site. It’s simple to use – you simply need your Sales Order # or your phone number associated with your Suburban Furniture account to view your time window.

We now offer Same Day Delivery. We know how it is when you find something, fall head over heels in love with it, and simply need it RIGHT THAT MOMENT. We’ve ALL been there. Now it’s easier to get exactly what you want, exactly when you want it – no more waiting weeks or even months for new furniture to arrive! 90% of what you see in our showroom is in stock, in the fabric and finish shown, and ready for Same Day Delivery. (Although if you don’t mind waiting, we can still customize the fabrics and finishes on most of our items to meet your specific needs and wants as well!)

There is, of course, a slight catch – we do need you to be in our Same Day Delivery area. That area is quite large, however, so chances are that you will be! Our Same Day Delivery area includes: Allamuchy, Brookside, Budd Lake, Cedar Knolls, Chester, Denville, Dover, Flanders, Hackettstown, Hopatcong, Ironia, Kenvil, Landing, Lake Hopatcong, Ledgewood, Long Valley, Mine Hill, Mendham, Morristown, Morris Plains, Mountain Lakes, Mount Arlington, Netcong, Parsippany, Randolph, Rockaway, Roxbury, Stanhope, Succasunna, Wharton and Whippany. (Told ya it covered a lot!) If you aren’t in this area, don’t worry, most all other towns surrounding us in Morris, Warren, and Sussex Counties can be delivered the following day; just call us at (973) 927-7100 to make sure we deliver to your area. To qualify for Same Day Delivery to these towns, simply make your purchase of in-stock furniture before 2PM on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday! Rather pick up your item yourself? We’ve got convenient pick-up hours at our Randolph warehouse for that. (We do not currently offer out-of-state delivery).

There’s currently no better time to come fall in love with a new bedroom suite, office desk, sofa, or bookcase either, as we’re currently offering HALF-OFF YOUR ENTIRE PURCHASE (*some restrictions apply*) or FIVE YEARS OF INTEREST-FREE FINANCING (*some restrictions apply*)! No, you definitely heard us correctly when we said “½ off your entire purchase” and “five years” and we’re definitely not joking. So visit our website or drop by one of our stores to fall in love today!

How to Choose Your Forever Sofa

products_coaster_color_moxie--181734809_503995-m1

Whether you’re buying your first ever sofa or you’ve had your current sofa for approximately 873 years and it’s time to send it out to the farm, picking out a sofa is a big deal. What kind of sofa will last the longest? What’s the best bang for your buck? And which will be the most comfortable for those Netflix marathons? We’ve got the tips that will help you find your forever sofa!

  1. Check the frame. The sturdier the frame, the longer-lasting the sofa. Soft wood, like pine, may be low cost, but it’ll also warp after a few years. Hardwood, however, is more durable. Likewise, frames made of particleboard, plastic, or metal may warp or crack, so avoid those too. Make sure the legs are part of the frame, or at the least that they’re held on with screws or pegs. Stay away if legs are simply glued on. A simple way to test the frame? Lift one front corner of the sofa off the floor. By the time you’ve raised it 6 inches, the other front leg should have risen as well. If it’s still touching the floor, the frame has too much give (ie, it’s weak).
  2. Joinery. This one’s easy – never buy a sofa that’s held together solely by staples, nails, and/or glue. Oh, and ask your salesperson for written manufacturer information on frame joinery.
  3. Test the springs. This one comes down to about 75% comfort. Most sofas have those snake like curly springs. They’re nicely supportive, but they can press on the frame or sage over time if the metal isn’t heavy. High-end sofas often come with “eight-way hand-tied springs” (ooohhh, fancy). They’re really comfy, but also expensive; and some experts think they aren’t any better than the snake-y springs. So, basically – feel the springs! They should be close together and firm. Also, sofas without springs (with webbing or mesh) = super uncomfy and flimsy. To test ’em, sit down firmly on a corner of the sofa. If you hear squeaks and creaks, it typically means that the springs are hitting the frame or they’re placed incorrectly.
  4. It’s all about the fillings. There are A LOT of options out there when it comes to cushion fillings. Good options that are comfy and reasonably priced? High-resilient foam in a lawyer of down and conventional foam wrapped in polyester batting.
  5. Toughen your sofa up! Unless your sofa is going to be hanging out in a room for decorational purposes only, it’s going to need a durable fabric. Cotton and linen are awesome (but not loose weaves because they can snag). There’s also synthetic microfiber which can mimic most fabrics and is stain resistant (yes!). This one is more durable than cotton and linen as well. Wool and leather? Handsome and strong but expensive. Silk? Sleek but fragile. Fabrics that have patterns woven in tend to wear better than those with printed patterns. Want to see how the sofa might look in your room before you get it? Ask the store for a piece of fabric larger than the usual swath. Place it where the sofa will go, view it in both natural and artificial light, and see how much you still like it after a few days.
