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

You are SO welcome, Kathy! WE love that YOU love the furniture and had a wonderful experience!


Like we said, don’t take it from us. Take the word of our many, many happy customers. We’re here to make your life a little simpler. Period. So let us. Oh, and by the way – thank YOU, guys. Our clients are the BEST!

Featured Brand: Uttermost

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 Uttermost. Sit back, relax and have a closer look at Uttermost!

Uttermost offers the broadest selection of Mirrors in the industry, as well as one of the most extensive lines of Art, Metal Wall Décor, and Accessories. In the spring of 2002, Uttermost introduced Lamps, which is now the fastest growing major Lamp line in the country. In January of 2006, Uttermost introduced a complete line of lighting fixtures. These lighting fixtures are available exclusively through professional lighting retailers. Uttermost manufactures mirrors, art, metal wall art, lamps, accessories, clocks and lighting fixtures.

Mirror

The Uttermost culture is founded on the concept of partners in business. From the Designer who envisions and creates the new idea to the craftsman in the factory who transforms that idea into a finished product, to the Retailer who selects and merchandises that new item, they’re all dependent on each other. So Uttermost’s outlook is one of mutual respect for all of their partners in business.

Uttermost offers one of the most broad and most current product lines in the world. Their line includes accent furniture, decorative mirrors, alternative wall, art, clocks, lamps, lighting fixtures, botanicals, and accessories. Recently added to their line is the best selling products from Austin Reproductions as well as the entire Timeworks line of clocks.

timeworks

While they focus every day on developing the latest designs, they know that good design means nothing without quality manufacturing. You can be certain that on Uttermost products, no shortcuts are taken in manufacturing to make sure their products exceed expectations.

Make Your Literature Dreams Come True!

Are you an avid reader? Whether you’re more into Stephen King or Kurt Vonnegut, Anais Nin or Toni Morrison, if you love books, you don’t just love reading them but you also take great pride in how you display them. Some people go for funky, vintage to keep their books organized (like one of our employees with her vintage 40s pantry), while others go for an “I want everyone to know EXACTLY who I’m reading” kind of vibe (you know what we mean). However you organize your books – by shape, size, author or in straight lines or zig zags – we’ve got the perfect bookshelves and bookcases to keep your books in tip-top shape!

Live your childhood “Beauty & the Beast” dreams out with these fabulous bookshelves & ladder (teacup not included)!

books 1

College student on a budget? Go funky & inexpensive with these cool shelves.

books 2

Or go completely minimalist with this totally wicked design (this one is for the serious book-lover!).

books 3

Trust us when we say these are just a few of HUNDREDS of bookcase designs here at Suburban. Check out our online store to see a bigger selection, then drop by the store to see them in person and get advice from our awesome employees!

Look Before You Browse

We know it can be a hassle sometimes to go shopping. You have to gather up the kids and one kid has lost his shoes and the other is pretending to be invisible, so obviously you can’t find them. Finally you get in the car and start out and then you get stuck in traffic on the way to the store. And every once in awhile, if you’re going to a place you’ve never been, after ALL of that, you get there and you’re just entirely let down. It’s disappointing; it’s draining. It’s a DRAG. We know.

THAT is why we now have a virtual tour of our Succasunna store on our website! We’re not just talking pictures of some of our furniture or shopping online (although you’re certainly welcome to do that too!). We’re talking virtually walking around our store and being able to see what’s in it (minus the people of course). It’s kinda similar to how Google Maps works when you zoom in to the street view to look around.

Basically, it’s really cool and it’s super helpful. This way you see EXACTLY what’s in store for you at our store before you ever step foot out of the house, therefore negating being disappointed. So check it out.

AND check out our Winter Sale – the entire store is ½ off! That’s a heck of a way to start the new year! So we’ll see you soon. Till then though, visit us through the virtual world!

50 Years of Family Owned

50Anniversary

Join us as we celebrate our 50th anniversary! Can you believe it?? The entire store is 50% off in honor of this important milestone so be sure to stop by and check out our offerings. With top name brands and interest free financing, you can’t go wrong!

A bit about us and our 50 years of history:

Suburban Furniture has been serving the Roxbury Township, Morris, Warren and Sussex County and Northern New Jersey areas for 50 years. Our customers value us for our large selection, beautiful showroom, fair prices and immediate delivery. Still family owned after 50 years we are committed to providing a unique, family friendly, comfortable place to shop for your home. Our caring staff, combined with affordable, in-stock furniture will help you furnish your home in hours, not months.

Our showroom has been awarded Best Retailer/Showroom awards from the Metropolitan Furnishings Association several times. You can expect to see items from all different categories including adult and youth bedrooms, dining rooms, dinettes/kitchen sets, living rooms, recliners, sectionals, sofa beds, entertainment centers and TV carts, mattresses (including the famous Tempurpedic Sleep Systems), cocktail and end tables, home office, accent pieces, lamps, pictures and art. We’ve got it all.

We also offer Same Day Delivery service which has eased the burden of waiting weeks or months for furniture. We know that once you fall in love with a piece of furniture, you want it right away. That is why 90% of what you see in our showroom is in stock, in the fabric and finish shown, for Same Day Delivery. If you don’t fall in our Same Day Delivery area, don’t worry. Most all other towns surrounding us in Morris County, Warren County, and Sussex County can be delivered to the following day. See our Same Day Delivery towns below. For those of you who don’t mind the wait, many of our showroom’s items’ finishes and fabrics can be customized to meet your specific decorating needs.

Finally, because our community has treated us so well over the years, we like to give back through support. We belong to the local, state and national Chambers of Commerce. We have contributed to local charities and charitable functions, including the Roxbury and Randolph schools, local churches, Rotary Club, Knights of Columbus, youth sports teams, the Morris County College scholarship fund, Market Street Mission, the Salvation Army, and St. Clare’s Hospital, just to name a few. We have also sponsored Child Safety Day here at the store with the Roxbury Police for several years.

Thanks for shopping Suburban Furniture!
