Gamma Leather Capri Sleeper Sofa

It’s not often you find a sleeper sofa that achieves high design as well as ease of use and comfort of both the sofa and the bed. Gamma’s Capri Leather Sleeper Sofa is that product.

Gamma Capri Sofa

When not in use as a sofa, the back cushions fold down towards the front and a metal bar is exposed. With a gentle pull, the bed pops up and out and gently comes to rest on the floor. Uncommonly, this sleeper sofa has no removable cushions that you have to find a place to store. For apartments and houses that have limited choices for seating due to small entrances, the arms gently slide off to make the piece easily maneuverable. Made in Italy.

Wien Chairs?

How do you even say it? Ween? Whyne? We aren’t bold enough to try and mispronounce a beautiful dining chair.

The Wien Dining Chair from Calligaris is a cast metal chair with a polycarbonate seat and back. It evokes a feeling of rural dining if plastic was a normal material.

5 Great Reasons to Own a Stressless Recliner.

Norwegian Recliner company Ekornes has been manufacturing furniture since 1934. In 1971, Ekornes launched their Stressless line which was designed to meet your body’s need for movement and support when seated. Their Stressless Recliner is the effort of 76 years worth of design and innovation in the furniture industry.

Stressless Recliners are one of our top selling items and it’s really no surprise why. In case you aren’t familiar with these recliners, we have compiled a list of the top 5 reasons to own one. If you’re in the market for a recliner, this might be all you need to read.

Reason #1 – Support
The Stressless Recliner has a patented feature that is designed to give you back support in every position. The Plus system automatically provides correct support for your head and lumbar area in all positions. The lower back support adjusts in parallel with the headrest, so you can enjoy perfect support, whether you are sitting in an upright or reclining position. The headrest adjusts automatically, so you can read and watch TV even in a reclined position. You can also adjust the headrest with a simple hand movement to lie flat and relax. Essentially no matter what you’re doing, there isn’t an uncomfortable position in this chair.

Reason #2 – Warranty
The Stressless Recliner is covered by a 10 year warranty. Ekornes is so confident in their quality that they offer an unprecedented warranty on their product. Of course the warranty does not cover damage to leather or woodwork or any faults or damage caused by misuse, as well as any faults or damage arising from any unauthorized repairs. We understand the last sentence isn’t a reason to own a Recliner, but the legal department makes us say it.

Reason #3 – Styles and Sizes
The range of Stressless Recliners is built in a way that if you want to have 2 recliners in the same room, and they’re for different size people, you are able to get the same style. There are several distinct styles with either 2 or 3 sizes to accomodate any body type. Continuity is key in design, and this is no exception.

Reason #4 – Covering & Wood Options
With four types of leather and fabric to choose from in a full range of colors and 6 wood finishes, you can get something that matches your decor exactly. Many popular color combinations are in stock for delivery within about 4 weeks. Special orders take about 12-14 weeks as they come from Norway, but when it comes to a recliner that you’re going to look at for 15+ years, this is a small time to wait.

Reason #5 – ACA Endorsed
“The average person spends a great deal of time sitting in chairs and sofas. Therefore, it is very important to choose furnishings that are built using sound ergonomic principles. Ekornes uses those very principles and that is why the ACA is proud to endorse Stressless seating by Ekornes.” Those words were spoken by Dr. Donald J. Krippendorf, President of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), in February 2003, when the Stressless Recliner, manufactured by Ekornes, was given the endorsement of the American Chiropractic Association.

With a list like this, we don’t see how any other recliner can compare. To see the full collection, visit our Ekornes Stressless Recliners section!

The Eilersen Sofa Dissected

Every so often in furniture, we get a new product that re-defines what comfort and quality really mean. The latest manufacturer we have picked up has done exactly that and actually explains the difference between them and the rest. That company is Eilersen.

As you probably already know, quality can’t be tested online. It’s even difficult to test it in a store. True quality reveals itself after years of use. Eilersen combines the best materials with a proud tradition for craftsmanship in every product we make. Their durability speaks its own clear language.

The Eilersen Sofa Dissected

1. A cushion alternative, which also fulfils the maintenance free stability and the downy appearance of the down cushion and optimum seat comfort and sitting climate, is the downtop cushion, which consists of a core of high-elastic polyurethane foam filled with 100% goose down and fine feathers sewn into a channel divided case of down proof cambric.

2. For seats Eilersen uses a sandwich structure consisting of polyurethane foam wrapped in a layer of 600 g pre-compressed chemically bonded cotton. Therefore these cushions retain their appearance and elasticity without maintenance.

3. In upholstery Eilersen uses a very heavy and durable polyurethane foam, which to ensure comfort has been made exceptionally soft and therefore has a maximum life. Further the foam is subjected to repeated mechanical compressions in order to reduce the inevitable loss of hardness during use. Therefore furniture made by Eilersen has built-in lasting comfort, elasticity and optimum stability of form.

4. Precision-machined solid wood offers a light and flexible sofa frame, where the parts are glued and assembled with dowels. Year in and year out these frames stand the often immense strain to which upholstered furniture is exposed.

5. Fibrefill offers the sitting person a sensation of downy softness, however, it is important that this sensation is retained even after a long time in use, and for fibrefill applies that variations in quality soon will be noticed in use. The light, cheap, hard-carded fibrefill collapses to nothing after a short time in use, while the heavy and more expensive quality, which is pre-compressed and where the fibres mostly are chemically bonded, retains the volume much better. Like polyurethane foam it applies for fibrefill, that the price increases with weight and number of treatments, but unfortunately it is not possible to see the quality of the fibrefill used, when you look on the outside of an upholstered piece of furniture.

6. The cushion case is a down proof cambric divided into channels to prevent the filling from excess movement. In your furniture all cushions except the seat cushions are of the type filled with goose down and fine feathers.

7. Goose down and fine feathers used as cushion filling offers a casual cushion and furniture with an optimum-sitting climate due to the ability of the feathers to absorb large quantities of moisture. The disadvantage, however, is that when the filling get moist it tends to stick together. Therefore this type of cushions has to be dried and shaken up regularly to retain their softness and volume.

8. The excellent long lasting seat comfort and the silent seat springing are ensured by the use of nozag springs, which are individually mounted in a special nylon lined fitting. Polyurethane foam, which is a synthetic upholstering material, is made from poly-isocyanates and polyols as the main contents. Polyurethane foam has a porous cell structure like a sponge. During the manufacturing process, the thickness of the cell wall can be controlled and thus weight and hardness of the finished product. All polyurethane foam becomes softer in use; however, it is easy to imagine that a thicker foam with a thicker cell wall offers a better durability for a longer time.

In closing, we believe this to be a thorough and full description of the quality of Eilersen. The only thing left is to come into the store and try out one of the two models we carry. We know you won’t be dissappointed.

The Sequel Home Office

Sequel Home Office Collection from BDI

That picture reminds us of something. Oh yeah, thats right, it’s the perfect home office solution.

The Sequel Home Office Collection is designed with everything in mind. The desk starts with an angular metal leg that elegantly supports a slim wood top portion. Inside the low profile top is a black neoprene lined keyboard tray which is set up in a way that allows you to charge your cellphones, cameras etc. without having to remove the charger.

On the back of the desk are magnetically attached wood panels which conveniently serve as covers for all your unsightly wires. The back panel can be removed for placement on the wall so that the wall plug can be covered with the front panel. The goal is to conceal all wiring for a sleek, clean look.

The top of the desk is covered with a micro etched glass top that is essentially fingerprint resistant, non glare and works with an optical mouse. Other materials used on the desk are brushed Nickel and your choice of wood – Natural Cherry, Espresso Stained Oak or Natural Walnut.
