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!

What’s the Word on the Street?

testimonials-featured2-01

Hey, 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:


Dear Ken, I just wanted to write you and let you know what a wonderful experience we had with Margot, and the store itself. We recently purchased a sofa and from the minute we walked in, Margot was so accommodating. She had so much patience (I brought 2 young kids with me who both happened to be in a “mood”), was so honest (didn’t steer me into purchasing a higher-end sofa – she knew the sofa was “temporary” going into a den with 2 young kids), and even suggested I talk to the designer to help confirm a floor plan. The delivery was prompt and price was more than fair. We would definitely would shop here again. Looking forward to it. Thank you and keep up the good work!” ~Sari

Thanks, Sari! We’re so happy Margot was able to help you and your family out!


Most people start writing you a letter because they were dissatisfied with the service, well, I would like to do the opposite. I started looking for my living room furniture over a year ago, coming periodically to your store and believe me, I’m in sales myself but I wouldn’t want to deal with myself. Maybe I’m not difficult but it takes me a long time to make a decision. So after a year most of your sales team knew my first and last name (which was embarrassing!). I have to tell you, your sales people always treated me with a lot of patience, respect and helpfulness. You should be very proud to have such a sales team behind you. I would like to name Debi Weinstein who stayed with me for my long journey and at the end sold me a beautiful sofa. Her knowledge and patience, always welcoming me into your store with a big smile ended with a positive result for her and me. I don’t want to forget your wonderful designer Paul Kepler who spent endless time helping me with selecting fabric, style, etc. I would also like to mention Rob Watterworth who helped me and didn’t even make any money on me. He spent time with me after I bought my sofa. Debi and Paul helped me even after my purchase with suggesting carpet and paint colors. That’s what I call SERVICE!! You must train and expect a lot from your sales team. Being in real estate, your store will come up every now and then with customers, and I will be recommending your store as the place to go and get beautiful furniture. With a great selection and fantastic salespeople and designers. I can’t wait to get my new sofa in my living room! Please tell your sales team, thank you from the bottom of my heart.” ~Eva

Wow! Thank YOU from the bottom of our hearts for this amazing letter, Eva!


We just wanted to take a moment to tell you about our experience at Suburban Furniture with our sales rep, George Bolen. George was great to work with! He is extremely honest, professional and knowledgeable and was able to help direct us to exactly what we were looking for! We purchased our living room and dining room furniture from Suburban and will be back soon to start our hunt for the perfect bedroom set! We are really looking forward to working with him again!” ~John & Cathy

We told George what you guys said, John & Cathy, and he said to tell you THANK YOU for the compliment! He also said he can’t wait to help you find your bedroom set, so come by soon!


Like we said, don’t take it from us. Take the word of all those happy customers (who particularly enjoyed our fabulous customer service). We’re here to make your life a little simpler. Period. So let us.

And stop by right now because the entire store is ½ off!

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.

SF Corsica - -835685090_COR-FD2-b0

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!
