We love telling you more about some of the brands we carry and we hope you enjoy learning more about some of your favorite brands as well! Today we’d like to tell you a little more about Flexsteel. So, sit back, relax and have a closer look at Flexsteel!

Flexsteel Industries, Inc., founded in 1893 as Rolph & Ball Furniture company, is one of the oldest U.S. upholstered furniture manufacturers. 120 years later, Flexsteel is a true American success story, having gone from one small factory in Minneapolis to a nationwide five-plant, global sourcing network. They’re known for making high-quality, long-lasting stationary & reclining furniture – sofas, sectionals, love-seats, chairs, recliners & more – offered in a selection of styles that runs the gambit and with a variety of price points.

What sets Flexsteel apart from the rest is their use of the Blue Steel Spring. Developed by Swiss inventor E.W. Schlappritzi in the 1920s for European railroad car seating, Flexsteel decided to use this as the base for their furniture to stand out. It’s performed so well that the design has barely changed in over 75 years and Flexsteel guarantees it for life.

Flexsteel also offers warranties for many of the other materials used in their cushions and reclining mechanisms, not just this one. Since each piece of furniture is created by skilled craftsmen and each frame thoroughly tested to meet the highest of quality standards, this is their way of offering you peace-of-mind. Your furniture will continue to support and comfort for years to come.

No matter your style or needs, Flexsteel offers the selection that’s exactly right for your home. Most pieces are available in thousands of frame and fabric combos, so no matter how you’ve imagined your perfect fit, you’ll be sure to find it.

You can check out their furniture on our site or drop by one of our locations today to see everything in person!

Recliners are amazing – fab, comfy and man’s best friend during football season. They’re also great for summer too, as they’re perfect for lazing about in. Plus they come in all different sizes and shapes! That means you should be sure you’re buying the right size of recliner for yourself and home (you need to be comfortable for that all-night binge of “The Walking Dead”, right?). Here’s how you can find the perfect recliner that suits your needs so you’ll only partially be a zombie yourself after that TV marathon!

First things first, you want to measure your space. Sure, the extra-huge recliners look decadent, but do you really have the room in your home? Generally speaking, it’s the width plus the depth and height of the recliner that affords the most room to relax. For simplicity’s sake, we’ll use the width as the basis for measurement.

OVERSIZED/BIG DADDY RECLINERS
These bad boys measure 50″ or wider. Here’s some examples:

ReclinerWide1

This Zero Wide Wall Seat Recliner by Signature Design is perfect for snuggling up in, with a good book, blanket and cup of coffee!

MID-SIZE RECLINERS
These guys measure between 40″ and 49″. Check ’em out below!

Mid-Recliner

This cutie Casual Upholstered Wall Recliner by Klaussner is not only adorable – it’s comfy! Available in a wide range of fabric and leather upholstery, a contemporary design features a plush seat cushion, attached pub back and pillow top arms.

SMALLER RECLINERS
The babies of the recliner family, these “little” ones measure 39” and below.

SmallRecliner

This itsy fella by Best Home Furnishings is a sleek and modern rocker recliner that’s perfect for a round on the laptop!

Next up is style! When it comes to style, recliners are versatile. Some styles feature one or two recliners, others have more unique features. Here’s a look at the main styles:

  • TRADITIONAL: The Traditional Recliner offers two positions: upright and reclined. It can either have a lever that you push, or you can simply push the back of the chair. These recliners are affordable, the most common and are available in varying options.
  • ROCKING: The Rocking Recliner (also known as a glider) is a combination of the traditional and rocking chair features. It’s particularly great for new moms!
  • POWER: The Power Recliner is designed for people with mobility problems. They are secured to the wall and feature a button that converts it into a recliner chair.
  • MASSAGE: The Massage Recliner allows you to relax and get a massage by being fitted with mechanical parts that vibrate and knead your back muscles to remove the stress. Mmmm….Keep in mind these recliners can be heavy & bulky though.

Once you land on a recliner size and style that fits your needs, decide on some features and you’ll be set! Drop by our website or one of our several stores to see our huge recliner selection. Happy reclining!

What’s the Word on the Street?

THANK YOU on speech bubble price labels

We’re always telling you how awesome we are – how we have the best brands and greatest selection, how our customer service is top notch and our prices can’t be beat – but don’t just take our word for it! Listen to our customers and what they have to say – they’d know better than us, right? Here’s the word on the street:


I recently have had the pleasure of working with Debi Weinstein and Paul Kepler. They assisted me in re-decorating my family room. I want to commend their professionalism and expertise in assisting me to make great choices. I am delighted with the furniture they helped me select. The home consultation was of great benefit in providing Paul and Debi with room size, colors and what I wanted to achieve with new furniture. You are very fortunate to have these two employees who provide great guidance and service.” ~Catherine

Thanks, Catherine! We’ll be sure to pass along your commendation and we’re super happy you’re so delighted!


Martin and Ken, I cannot thank you enough for the assistance provided. I was expecting a simple “we don’t sell that anymore – would you like to buy a new bed?” response, but instead you offered spare parts from the warehouse without any prompting or begging from me. Martin was more than helpful when I arrived – scouring the warehouse for rails that matched so the depth would be the same and the mattress would not be on a slant. He also provided materials to make new pegs and explained the whole process very clearly to me, one who is not an expert with tools and minor construction. I’m happy to say that everything worked out perfectly! The bed is sturdier than before and we have been sleeping comfortable since I picked up the parts from the warehouse last Saturday. This high level of customer service is sadly far too rare these days. I truly appreciate your help and will be recommending your store to all of my friends.”~Pat

We’re always happy to provide assistance, Pat, and going above and beyond is something we strongly believe in. Thanks for the kind words!


Hi Margot, I just wanted to let you know we absolutely LOVE the furniture. It fits great in our space and is wonderful quality. the delivery guys were also wonderful – one of them had been here for our dining table and remembered Fiona. Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful service, I’m so glad we were able to come back to you for a second purchase. Thanks Again!”~Kathy

Come Join Us for the Bassett Book Signing!

factory-man

Come join us Thursday, May 21, 2015, from 5:30pm-8:30pm, to hear John D. Bassett III of Vaughan Bassett Furniture speak about keeping manufacturing in the USA and saving American jobs. He’ll also be signing copies of the New York Times Best Seller “Factory Man”, written by Beth Macy, which chronicles history of the Basset Family and their rise to domination of wood furniture manufacturing in the USA throughout the 20th century. It also addresses American furniture manufacturer’s brush with extinction as global capitalism led to outsourcing and the massive loss of 73,000 jobs, as well as the crippling of many southern furniture towns. It finally details John D. Bassett III’s years’ long Capital Hill fight to save these American jobs from Chinese takeover. The book is getting special treatment as Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman plan its production as a miniseries for HBO.

 

Books will be available for a discounted purchase of $20. All proceeds from the book sales will go to the Dean Michael Clarizio Cancer Foundation, a New Jersey charity, and Suburban Furniture will be matching the donation to the foundation. Also Vaughan Bassett Furniture will be giving away a bedroom set valued up to $2000. All non-furniture attendees will have a chance to win!


Suburban Furniture on Rt. 10 in Succasunna has long been a Made in America bedroom gallery by Vaughan-Bassett, Bassett’s bedroom manufacturing company.

“Margot, Thank you so much for taking care of the seam and body issues on the sofa. I never expected to get new items – I thought someone with a needle, thread, and know how would just come do a repair. This was really above and beyond my expectations. You have a customer for life! Hope all is well. Have a great day.” ~Susan


“Hi Michele, I just want to say thanks for your help with the problem we had and we can’t say enough about you and Suburban. The new couch and chair are great looking and very comfortable. My wife and I think you went above and beyond to help us. When we get ready to buy new furniture we know were to come.” ~Pat & Paul


“Hi Robert and Elise, a follow up to my recent conversation with Elise, one of your floor representatives at the Succasunna location. I wanted to thank you again for the spectacular service and support provided during the purchase of our newest couch. They say nothing in life is simple, and as we know ordering this piece of furniture fell into that category. We’ve enjoyed all of our purchases provided by Elyse and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend suburban furniture again. Thanks again for your help and perseverance with this order!” ~~John & Val

Thanks guys! You really ARE the best!
