design-webb-1

Getting the perfect room design is easier than you think! With Suburban Furniture’s help, you can create the room of your dreams in just a few simple steps. Our Design Department will help you identify your decorating style, make furniture recommendations that fit your lifestyle, and present a detailed plan perfectly suited to your budget. Here’s how to get started.

  1. Start with measuring & taking photos of your room. This part is vitally important so try to be as accurate as possible with the measurements and take photos from different angles (from the doorway, from the corner – get the entire room in there!).
  2. Design a dream board. Gather together your furniture inspiration in the form of a Pinterest board or magazine photos or furniture images from our website. Pick as many or as few as you want – go wild! Include anything you might want even a little bit; it can be narrowed down to a particular style or want later.
  3. Sit back and relax! Now is our time to shine. From here, our expertise will work to help you avoid making any costly design mistakes. We’ll create a room plan and make furniture recommendations drawn from your dream board.

Ready to get started on your desired design? HERE’S how to get us all the above info. And if you’re interested in just browsing or have a question for us simply visit our site, give us a call, or drop by our store. We’re always happy & ready to help!

Why You Should Invest in a Sideboard

Sideboards have been around since the 18th Century, storing our stuff and generally helping us be more organized. While sideboards (also known as buffets, consoles, and credenzas) started out in dining rooms as a place to hold cutlery, dishes, napkins, etc., they’re now being incorporated throughout the entire house. Wherever you use them, sideboards serve a great many purposes and offer a great many uses.

  1. Sideboards slip into slim spaces. Most sideboards are thin/shallow which makes them easy to fit into tight spaces like hallways or next to the bed. Choose a design with sliding doors to save more space.

  2. Have an open floor plan like a loft space? A sideboard can divide the space up. Place the sideboard behind the sofa to create space between the living area and dining area.

  3. Sideboards make great alternatives to the typical media cabinets and dressers. Mount your TV above a sideboard that’s equally as wide to create balance (or just place it on the sideboard) or simply use a sideboard in place of a dresser.

  4. Use a sideboard to organize your entry hallway. Your foyer/entry hallway can be a hectic place since it’s where everyone tends to dump their stuff. Having a sideboard there means each member of the family can have a drawer or compartment for their keys, scarves, gloves, etc. Voila, cleanliness!

  5. Sideboards blend in. Furniture used for storage tends to be fairly open (think bookcases and modular shelving units) but with sideboards, everything is hidden for a streamlined, clutter-free look.

  6. Make your kid’s room more stylish with a funky sideboard used for storage. They’re perfect for storing things like Legos and art supplies plus you can fit bigger stuff in the cabinet parts.

  7. Create a bar. Add a tray for an ice bucket, serving glasses, and whatever your poison to a sidebar and you’re set!

  8. Sideboards can ground artwork. Placing a sideboard underneath a piece of art on the wall draws the eye to the art. If you have a piece you particularly love, try this trick out.

Sideboards are useful creatures, can be eye-catching pieces, and are fabulous for organization. Whatever you decide to use them for and wherever you decide to put them, it’s a sure bet you’ll be happy. If you need help deciding what sideboard is best for you, visit us online today, drop by the store or call, and we’ll be happy to help out! We can’t wait to help you find your new piece!

Featured Brand: Artisan

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.

We invite you to check out Artisan’s beautiful furniture at any of our Suburban locations or on our amazing website!

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.

Price Matching Guaranteed!

prices

It doesn’t happen often (trust us!) but occasionally you may find a competitor who has the item of furniture you’re looking for at a lower price. No problem! We match almost all local competitors’ prices. Here’s how it works.

We’ll match almost any local competitor’s price on an identical brand new item. We’ll need to verify the price. We consider any store within 45 miles a “local” competitor. Not all prices can be matched. If we can’t match the price, we’ll let you know why.

Natuzzi

Some of the prices that may not be matched include web prices. Why? There’s little risk in buying books and shoes online. Not so with furniture, which is bulky and needs to be treated with extra special care. We’ll match almost any local store (whether they offer Suburban’s level of expertise or not), but there’s going to be a modest price difference between local and web-only stores. Keep in mind that web-only stores often advertise free “curbside delivery” but charge handsomely for in home white glove delivery that comes standard with local store delivery charges. Many of our competitors local and on-line also impose lofty restocking fees for cancellations, whereas Suburban does not. Plus, local stores like Suburban can offer personalized service and years of experience that web-only stores cannot. Not all furniture stores are equal, especially when it comes to service and delivery. Please make sure you read others’ pricing, service, returns and delivery policies to know if you are making an apples to apples comparison. But listen, if you find a difference you feel is excessive, bring it to our attention; we want your business!

Okay, but what if you’ve already purchased an item and THEN find it for a lower price at a different place? Again, not a problem! If you see the exact same item at a local furniture store for less within 30 days of your purchase, we will adjust the price or give you store credit. It’s quite simple. If you haven’t received your delivery yet, we adjust your order to match the sale items of the other store. If you have received your delivery in the last 30 days, we will give you store credit for the difference.

So to sum up:

• If you find a lower price on an identical item at a local competitor’s store or website, we’ll do our best to match it; if we can’t we will explain why
• Pricing not listed on websites must be verified via phone, print advertisement or written quote
• Price matching cannot be combined with other offers not available at the competitor
• “Local” competitors are those with a physical presence in the same city or within 45 miles of our store
• Limited quantity specials, closeouts, floor samples, damaged/as-is items are excluded
• We reserve the right to limit quantities

Then just give us a call or email with what you’ve found: 973-927-7100 or sales@suburbanfurn.com

We work hard at being the best, here at Suburban Furniture, and that involves making sure our customers are happy and satisfied. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have a question! Happy shopping!
