England Furniture was founded in 1964 with a mission to create manufacturing jobs where they were needed most, in America. Today, all our items are manufactured right in the foothills of East Tennessee. We’ve grown since then, with over 1,000 people as part of our team. We remain competitive with our high-quality products and a rapid delivery system. We’re proud to offer 400 fabrics and leathers for the best customer experience. Take a look at some of the photos from our factory that we post on #PlantTourTuesdays.
Now that you’ve done your spring cleaning and are ready to enjoy the summertime, here are some tips to brighten up your home and splash into a warmer season. While a complete England Furniture overhaul isn’t for everyone, these tips are for redecorating budgets both big and small.
Let sunlight dance around your home while maintaining privacy. Opt away from the blinds and heavy window treatments this season. Use a sheer curtain fabric in a light color and more solid colors on the sides to frame the window.
Store away the heavy blankets
In the summer it can be comfortable to wrap yourself in a lighter blanket. The look of heavy throw blankets on couches in the living room can give off the wrong feel, so try out a lighter blanket. There are many ottomans from the England Furniture Company that you can use to save those heavier blankets for the fall!
Add some flowers
Fresh cut flowers add life to any room! If you’re prone to allergies, there are ways to make faux flowers look alive. Adding a bit of water to the bottom of a vase can take ordinary fake flowers up a notch. Adding just a few real flowers can tie the look together to make it more believable. Flower arrangements almost always have some greenery in them, so don’t be afraid to add in a few small accents of real green leaves.
Accent pillows are your couch’s favorite accessory. These pops of color can pick up on a hue in your new bright drapes or threads in your new blanket. This fun accent is an easy way to bring life to any color couch.
Beachy scented candles
Seasonal candles add another dimension of summer to a living space. While the rest of the room can look visibly bright, candles add an extra summery scent.
They’re the living room transformer, giving you versatility and a chic look all in one. England Furniture offers a large variety of styles for your new favorite piece of furniture. It’s time to get rid of that futon and see all that sleeper sofas can add to your home!
3 reasons to get a sleeper sofa
1. Maximize your space
When living in a smaller, condensed space, it’s important to take advantage of all your square footage. Sleeper sofas enable you to have a multifunctional space for whatever life throws at you. Check out the Philip Full Sleeper or the Seabury Twin Sleeper if a queen-sized mattress doesn’t suit your room.
2. Finally invite guests over
Offer your couch for your guests with pride! A beautiful sleeper sofa isn’t your college friend’s futon. With this piece, you’ll be able to offer a hospitable space without embarrassment. The impressive Leah Queen Sleeper is a functional statement piece.
3. Refresh your space with functionality
A new piece of furniture in your living room can mean you’re reinventing an area of your home or just refreshing it. Opt for a piece that’ll be both beautiful and functional. The Walters Queen Sleeper has a traditional feel that will breathe new life into your living room.

Countless studies discussing the relationship between office productivity and the office environment have been released over the past decade. These studies discuss the importance of lighting, color, acoustics, ergonomic, room temperature, and air quality. Another key factor is the office layout and the furniture used to design your office space.
The idea of creating an open-office, or a part of your office as an intentional open-space, remains a popular choice. It is also often viewed as a way to increase employee satisfaction and office productivity. Whether you’re considering the open-office or open-space, the England Furniture Company encourages you to consider these factors before you make your purchases.
Boring Furniture = Ineffective Employees
Boring office furniture typically creates situations where office materials begin to pile up and clutter the environment. As a result, people react in one of two extremes – irritation or laziness. Either way, they tend to increasingly lose interest in their work and their productivity goes down.
As in the case of many interior design situations, color choice matters. Various studies demonstrate how individuals are affected by one color or another. But it’s not only the color choice that you should consider. The intensity of the color (or colors) in your office also matter. Bright colors tend to stimulate the mind, while muted and soft colors tend to soothe us.
A Symbol of Your Culture
Your choice of office design and layout inherently creates a message to anyone who enters the space. It is a symbol of the company the company culture. An open-office, or an office with an open-space, informs employees that they work for an organization that is honest, transparent; and encourages communications, egalitarian relationships, brainstorming, and creativity. It can also suggest that managers care about the health and well-being of their employees and team members. Finally, it lets everyone know they are part of a team seeking to reach common visions and goals.
If you’re seeking to create an open-office, you may be on track for saving money. Open offices are typically much more cost-effective in terms of initial set-up, but they are also effective for cleaning, heating, and cooling purposes. Open offices can also allow for the introduction of more employees, thus giving companies room to grow and expand without having to relocate.
Are you planning to take some steps towards creating an open-office or open-space? Everyone loves the coffee house look and many of our England Furniture sofas are a great way to create an open, creative, and collaborative space.
Ever watch a movie or TV show and fall in love with the furniture? You know, beautiful stark white down couches with a white shag throw rug and glass top coffee table? It can look picture perfect, but if you duplicate the style in a house full of kids and Rover the family pooch, that look might last about thirty seconds. Maybe.
We all want to live in spaces that make us happy and we can more readily do that when we are realistic about our lifestyles and what comes with it. People who enjoy entertaining will have a hard time with furniture that can’t be lived in because spills and accidents happen in life. If you have kids or children visit often, creating an atmosphere that is comfortable for them will end up making your life easier, especially if they wander a little too close to your collection of first editions while sucking on a juice box.
The colors and accessories we choose for our rooms should complement our personalities and accent the things we love. Sometimes it’s safe to have the main furniture be a neutral color and then use pillows and blankets as colorful accents. If you love leather or dark furniture, then you can brighten the room with lighter shades of paint and bright lighting. No matter what you decide, look at your lifestyle and try to match it to your home décor.
We can still fawn over that white furniture, but parents might want to hold off until the kids are a little bit older.

Are you looking for the perfect way to escape the day-to-day grind with a relaxing backyard hideout all to yourself? There is no better solution than a “she shed.” Today, now more than ever, more and more women are staking claim to she sheds as the perfect spot to call their own.
Here are some ideas that can help you set up your own she shed:
Step 1: Thoroughly clean out a shed – If one has been conveniently ‘forgetting’ to clean out the cluttered shed, then it is time to do it. Go through the old garden boxes and tools and donate everything that you do not need anymore. Organize the rest for storage. For those without old sheds, you can purchase an easy to build kit from your local home improvement stores.
Step 2: Paint, and then search antique shops and flea markets for unique finds – Paint the inside of your shed and then decorate it with unique and personalize items. Decorating does not mean that one must break the bank. Antique shops, thrift stores, and flea markets always have some affordable and unexpected finds.
Step 3: Put comfortable furniture and any other fancy/ girlish things – Your she shed should be comfortable, feminine, and align with your own unique tastes. Start by ensuring your she shed has comfortable pieces from England Furniture. The right furniture can be magical during those stressful times.
Must haves for she sheds
Every lady can personalize her she shed based on her tastes and preferences. However, here are some of things almost every she shed needs;
- Lighting – Excellent lighting not only helps set the right tone and mood, but also ensures one is able to see.
- Ventilation – Proper ventilation is imperative to guarantee comfort, inspiration, and success in one’s solace.
- Electric accessibility – This comes in handy for your tools, music to get your creative juices flowing, and way to watch your favorite TV shows, and a place to plug in your mini frig.
- Workspace – For large projects, a solid and big table or desk can be quite handy.
- Scented candles or incense – A great way to help you wind down after a long day.
Every woman needs space where she can get away from the hustles and bustles of life. The she shed is the latest trend when it comes to female hideaways. With this space, a woman can pursue her hobbies, entertain friends, or simply relax.
