If you have kids or pets in your home, practicality and functionality is of high importance when it comes to furniture. This is why selecting the right fabric for your upholstered furniture is key. Fabrics that are visually appealing but delicate, like silk, are suitable for homes with older adults, but probably are not the best choice for homes with active young children. Similarly, fabrics like textured cotton are more durable than silk, but also have a tendency for dirt to get trapped in the fabric, which can be an issue with rambunctious pets or children.

Sleeper sofas have come a long way since they were introduced in the 1930s. Invented by Bernard Castro in 1931, sleeper sofas remained virtually unchanged for 70 years.

We spend about a third of our lives sleeping, yet mattresses are one of the most overlooked items in our homes. Since mattresses are typically covered with sheets, blankets and pillows, they tend to be out of sight, out of mind. As a result, the average person will not replace a mattress when it becomes worn out. Even if they are experiencing difficulty sleeping, they will typically still wait another 2-5 years before they decide to buy a new one. That just doesn’t make sense, and it’s hurting us. → Read more
