Did you know that the the first income tax suggested in the United States was during the War of 1812? It was never imposed though because a treaty was signed, thus ending the war (and the taxes were to support the war). Then there was the Tax Act of 1861 that was passed but never put into force. Then came the Tax Act of 1862 which was both passed AND enforced but which a ton of people just kind of ignored…then came the Tax Act of 1864…and finally there was the 16th Amendment in 1913 allowing Congress the authority to tax the citizenry on income from whatever source derived. Just a little history lesson for tax season! Which leads us to…

Spring is right around the corner and boy are we excited! Spring is one of our favorite times of year because it’s a time of renewal and change (also cleaning, lots of spring cleaning). It’s also a time for giving your home a fresh new look – why should you be the only one to get a new spring look? Here are some tips we’ve chosen for this spring to make your house look fabulous!
Make what’s old new again by reupholstering your furniture. It’s a fairly inexpensive way to change things up while somewhat designing the look yourself. And did we mention that we do custom upholstery?
Go floral. Faux floral, that is. Flowers are never out of style come spring and fresh flowers are the BEST but faux flowers require less upkeep and look just as good. Just burn a candle for that fresh floral scent.
Replace your curtains. Another spring style staple that’s quick, easy, and inexpensive. Swapping out curtains can make a major aesthetic impact on your space, depending on the color, style and texture you use.
Go for the gold! Gilded accents are totally in and having gold-tinted accents around your home will make it look shiny & new (plus catch lots of sunshine if you have them in the right place!).
Give your space a focal point. Does your living room or bedroom lack focus? Do you walk in and find that your eyes just sweep over everything without landing on any particular thing? Give your eyes a place to rest by investing in a piece of furniture that stands out from the rest in either color or shape!
Quietly quirky. Everyone loves a little quirk in their life and a simple way to add some to yours is by getting a quirky light fixture. It can be the only change you make to your room and can still change the whole dynamic & draw attention! Plus, fun!
Make it pop. Spring is all about vibrancy so make sure your home has some bright colors in it. Whether it’s a brightly colored pillow, flowers, wall art, or whatever, nothing will say “spring” more than this.
Paint the bedroom to sleep better. Yep, that’s right. No scientific studies or anything here but think about the places where you’ve slept the best (was it a hotel room? Your bff’s bedroom? Your parents’?) and paint your bedroom the same color. It might help you catch more winks!
Change the hardware. Another super easy, quick, and inexpensive way to redecorate for spring is to switch out the knobs and drawer pulls on your kitchen and/or bath cabinets. It’s an instant noticeable switch that will change things up for the better. Go wild and live it up!
Go green. Bring the outdoors indoors. Spruce things up with some plants (if you have pets though always check to see if the plants are pet-friendly!). Grow fresh herbs for cooking in your window. What better way to make your house look like spring?
Giving your house a fresh look for the spring season is easier than you think and we can help you out with dozens of ideas. Just drop by, email, check out our online catalog, or give us a call at (973) 927-7100 and we’ll be ready to give you a hand with your home’s facelift!
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 Artisan. Sit back, relax and have a closer look at Artisan!
Looking for comfort in a down-home style? Then Artisan is the brand for you! Their unique style is characterized by the variety of materials they use, such as wrought iron, real copper and zinc, and exotic woods including mango and parota wood. All of their pieces feature mortise and tenon joinery on solid wood frames, solid wood drawers, ball bearing glides (bedroom collections), and special features like microfiber lining on top drawers of bedroom case-pieces. With an experienced operation specialized in hand-crafted, old-world looks, you can make sure you are obtaining the best value in hand-crafted, unique pieces!
They also try to be good for the environment! Over the last couple of years, they’ve been adding several automatic mills and two Italian Kiln dryers (which enables them to source different types of woods. That keeps their raw material sourcing unique and their product line fresh!) For example, products made under the sustainable woods collections are handcrafted from Mango wood. This timber comes from the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of Mexico. In fact, they recently purchased dozens of acres of Mango tree farm lands that were no longer productive for the food industry and turned them into beautiful furniture pieces. By taking advantage of other industry’s by-products, they lower the impact in our environment.
Fall = lounging late in pjs, curling up with good books and coffee, and marathon Netflix binges as the weather gets chillier. For that you’ll need the perfect recliner! Luckily, there are so many types and features on recliners these days that you’ll have no problem finding your perfect fit. Get comfy while take a look at all the options available!
First, you’ll need to chose the type of recliner you want. There are 3 types to choose from: standard, high-leg, and lift. The standard recliner is just as it sounds – the typical recliner you know that moves into 2 or 3 positions. High-leg recliners are a bit more stylish than the standard and because most have a pushback feature, it means no visible handle for a cleaner look. And finally, the lift recliner not only reclines but lifts you from a sitting position to a standing position.
After you choose your type, next come the features (the fun part!). Mostly you’ll find these 8 features:
1. Rocker or Glider Base – has a motion feature so you can rock.
2. Swivel Base – allows you to turn in all directions.
3. Massage – (our personal fave!) grab a massage while you catch up on “Game of Thrones”; can come with or without a heat feature.
4. Big & Tall – extra large recliners designed to hold more weight than the average recliner.
5. Wall Hugger – if you live in a tiny space, this feature is for you; allows you to place the recliner much closer to the wall, only a few inches, to save space.
6. Lay flat – if you’re constantly falling asleep in your recliner, you need this; reclines to a flat position.
7. Built-in USB Charger – yes, really.
8. Power – with this feature you don’t have to worry with levers or handles, just push a button and you’re on your way to relaxation.
There are, of course, other options to decide when picking your amazing, wonderful recliner like the size of your space, whether it’s pet-friendly, and what kind of fabric you want. But with so many choices, it’d be hard to go wrong! Drop by your local Suburban Furniture today to get yours!

Listen to our customers and what they have to say – they’d know better than us, right? Here’s the word on the street:
My husband and I recently purchased a living room sectional and two recliner chairs, We are very pleased with our purchases. We had bought 2 recliners 18 months ago. They were terrible. They were difficult to use and did not stay in the reclining position. We spent a great deal of time at Suburban finding just the right one. Actually we had a couple that we were interested in, all American made. We are super happy with our choice. They are very comfortable, really soft micro fiber fabric. We were able to choose our fabric at no additional cost, plus we were able to have them made in swivel recliner style. Our sectional is exactly what we wanted. Elise spent a great deal of time with us helping us make our decision. The furniture was delivered at two different times and both sets of delivery men were very nice. Our driveway is 1/10th of a mile long and curvy. Both drivers backed down our driveway without going off on the side. Not an easy task at all. We will certainly return to Suburban for all of our furniture purchases! ~Sharon
Our delivery drivers are rock stars, are they not? And we’re so happy Elise was able to help you find the perfect furniture for your living room! Thanks so much for the kind words!
We purchased a king mattress, box spring, and frame from Margot Gaab yesterday evening. The choices, options, and the service were all above our expectations. The holiday sale and the knowledge of the sales staff made our purchase less painful than expected! Our mattress arrived this morning. We received an automatic phone call that told us the delivery truck was “ten minutes away.” Ten minutes later, two of the most efficient, professional truckers disassembled and removed our old bed. (And were gracious and patience and didn’t mind when we vacuumed under the bed!) Michael and Edwardo had the new bed set up, the old mattress and all the packing gone in minutes. We are extremely happy with the entire Suburban Furniture shopping experience. (A special shout-out to Gene, too!) ~Diane & Peter
Margot, Michael, Edwardo, & Gene all say THANK YOU! They were all extremely glad to be able to help out.
I recently purchased a house full of furniture for my new home. Debi and her husband Gene were so helpful with all of my selections. Everything looks great and fits perfectly. I was able to get the unique look that I was going for. All of the staff at Suburban are kind and friendly. The gentlemen delivering my furniture made it smooth and seamless. They were courteous, polite and efficient. Thanks to all! ~Teresa
No, thank YOU, Teresa! We know how important it is to get that specific look you want, especially in a brand-new home, and we’re so grateful we were able to help you achieve your vision!

Sleep pain is likely the result of a lack of proper support. This can mean anything from your mattress or pillow being worn out, to just not being the right fit for how you sleep.
1. Back Pain – Most often caused by a worn out mattress that is no longer capable of providing you with the support you need. Like slumping at your desk or while watching tv, slumping will likely cause back pain; preventing you from getting a full night’s sleep and contributing to back pain. As coils age they lose their ability to bounce back from weight being put on them night after night, resulting in a slumping mattress as they don’t have the same rigidity they once had, and need, in order to properly function.
This slumping doesn’t just apply to coil mattresses though, the same slumping issue is also true of foam mattresses. Slumping in foam mattresses is often easy to diagnose as the mattress will show visible signs of slumping while coil mattresses may not. To find the perfect mattress for your perfect night’s sleep come see our experts!
2. Neck Pain – Unlike back pain, neck pain is most commonly caused by your pillow, not your mattress. The pillow’s responsibility is to align your neck with your spine while you sleep. There are two key factors that go into why your pillow may have become a pain for your neck. The first is that the pillow has simply become worn out.
The other key factor to consider with your neck pain is did you select the right type of pillow for how you sleep? Depending on if you’re a side, back, or stomach sleeper the perfect pillow for you will change. Even the most expensive pillow can leave you waking up with pain in your neck if it doesn’t fit your sleep style. To find the perfect pillow for you, come see our experts!

Why is it important to have healthy sleep habits and the right mattress?
Everything you do on a daily basis is impacted by how well, or poorly, you sleep. Finding the right mattress and pillow for you and building healthy sleep habits can impact everything from aches and pains, to how productive you are at work, to what kind of mood you’re in. Getting a full night’s sleep can make it easier to cut out that extra cup of coffee or energy drink you may rely on every day.
How Do You Sleep?
How you sleep is a huge part of finding a mattress that is not only comfortable but also instrumental in ensuring you wake up every morning feeling refreshed and without aches or pains.
Side Sleeper- If you’re a side sleeper you will likely find your best night’s sleep on a softer mattress that allows your hip to sink into the mattress a little bit. This give from the mattress allows your hip to drop down a bit and allows your spine to properly align.
Back Sleeper- If you’re a back sleeper you will likely find your best night’s sleep on a softer mattress that allows your shoulders and hips to sink in a little bit and allow your spine to properly align. If a mattress is too firm you will likely feel uncomfortable points of pressure similar to the pain many of us feel after sitting in a car for a long drive.
Stomach Sleeper- If you’re a stomach sleeper then your best night’s sleep will likely come from a firmer mattress. Unlike back and side sleeper’s you’re already putting yourself in a position where your spine is aligned. This means that a mattress with more give will actually cause your spine to slump a bit which could lead to you waking up with back pain.
We’ll have more blogs on sleep health and how the importance of mattresses in the sleep equation, so make sure you continue to drop by on the reg! And if you’re ready to shop for your new mattress so you can get the best night’s sleep possible, simply visit us HERE.
