Our Fall Upholstery Sale is now underway at all our stores and this is a wonderful opportunity to prepare for the holidays. The sale runs through October 23rd with discounts of 25% on all stock and special order upholstered pieces and 20% off all fabric. Cooler days are surely on their way and so is the desire to make our living rooms, libraries and family rooms cozy and functional for the coming months. Our stores are filled at the moment with an array of beautiful ottomans and benches, so lets take a look at a few ideas.
Ottomans, benches and garden seats are not just wonderful accent pieces for your room but can serve many different functions. With the holidays on the way our rooms become filled with family and friends. An upholstered ottoman or bench can serve as the perfect extra seating arrangement and look so much better than pulling out folding chairs from the basement or closet. They are great for accomodating the grandchildren who want to be in on the action.
On less crowded days an ottoman can serve as a coffee table. Simply put a tray down on top of it et voila. On the quietest of days they serve their original function, placed in front of your comfiest chair as a place to rest and relax with a good book.
We have one last decorating tip for making these pieces special to your room. Time and time again our customers fall in love with a fabric that they want to put on a club chair or sofa but are put off because the fabric is expensive and the project goes over their budget. Take that fabric and put it on an ottoman or bench. It introduces another element to the overall design look you are after and helps you achieve your ultimate goal.
