How is COVID-19 Affecting the Furniture Industry?

This year has looked vastly different than many of us would have anticipated as we entered into 2020. COVID-19 has impacted our lives in so many areas from travel, to social gatherings, and even schools. We have been spending more time at home, and you may find yourself wanting to create or update different rooms throughout your house. Whether your children are learning digitally and need a dedicated virtual learning space, or you need more functional furniture as you have more family members at home than in the past; now is the perfect time to bring in new pieces that make our new normal an easier adjustment. 


Sadly, if you have browsed furniture stores, you may be disappointed to find that shipping and order fulfillment has been greatly delayed due to COVID-19. Many furniture retailers only carry a small stock in-store or online and have to place orders for the new demand. Fulfilling these new orders can take months! This can be extremely frustrating when you are trying to make your home more functional now only to realize that you will have to wait several months for that to happen. 


Thankfully, at Furniture of Dalton we have a huge warehouse with in-stock furniture that you can take home the same day! We pride ourselves on maintaining a robust selection and inventory for our customers especially during these unprecedented times. If you are preparing for virtual learning for your children and need a new desk for them to work at, we have great options like the Two-Drawer Desk below. This is the perfect space for little ones and teens to house their schoolwork and participate in online class, and the best part is that you can take it home today! 



We also have our Labor Day Sale happening from August 20 - September 9. Pay 0% interest for 60 months on purchases of $1,999 or more with equal monthly payments or receive 15% off of your purchase. This is a great opportunity to get the furniture that you have been eying at a great price! With Furniture of Dalton's large selection of in-stock furniture, you can pick out the perfect piece and take it home that day.  


As we get ready to enter into the holiday season, we also have the selection you need to make family gatherings a success with our Gathering Sale from September 10 - October 3. Receive a 20% discount on chairs with the purchase of a table. Enjoy spending time with close friends and family around a gorgeous new table complete with enough chairs so that everyone has a seat at this year’s holiday celebration!

 


With the uncertainty that this year has brought on, don’t let delayed furniture orders cause you undue stress. Visit our 120,000 square-foot showroom today and take advantage of in-stock pieces that you can take home immediately! We are open Monday through Saturday from 9 am to 6 pm. You can schedule an appointment on Facebook or give us a call at 800-262-3132. We look forward to helping you create a home that embraces our new normal and will last you for many years to come!

Labor Day Fun Ideas

As the unofficial end of summer, Labor Day is perfect for spending special time with family and friends. Amidst the current social distancing practices, the long weekend presents a great opportunity for small outdoor gatherings, BBQs, camping and so much more. As we embrace our new normal and prepare for all the fun that fall can bring, here are a few fun ideas to make your Labor Day celebrations a blast!


  1. A Classic Cookout- You can never go wrong with grilling out a delicious lunch or dinner spread for Labor Day. One way to ensure that you have the best cookout possible is to start with a top-of-the-line grill. The Big Green Egg is the best kamado grill, ceramic grill & charcoal smoker on the planet, with 7 convenient sizes! While summer gardens are still bountiful with fresh fruits and vegetables, take advantage of the farm to table opportunity and try these Grilled Vidalia® Onion Chicken Peach Skewers or go with a crowd-pleaser like Perfect Ribs. 

  1. Patio Party- Take advantage of the great weather that Labor Day presents with al fresco dining and gathering as we transition into cooler temperatures. Whether your Labor Day plans include a final dip in the pool or enjoying your deck or patio, a great outdoor furniture set can help seamlessly connect your Labor Day festivities from inside to outdoors. Create defined spaces and add a fun pop of color with an outdoor rug! Outdoor gatherings are also perfect for social distancing as they allow for ample space between guests and fresh air.

  1. Outdoor Movie Night! - With movie theaters across the country shut down due to COVID-19, an outdoor movie at home is a fun way to recreate a night out at the movies! Whether you prefer to watch an old favorite or stream a new release, follow these easy steps to setup a movie theater in your own backyard. Be sure to pop some popcorn, have plenty of your favorite candies, and refreshing drinks! 

  1. Backyard Camping- A great way to enjoy your Labor Day weekend is by getting in touch with nature. If you aren’t ready to fully embrace camping in the woods, your own backyard is a great place to set up a tent, listen to the sounds of nature, and enjoy quality time with family. Gather around the firepit and roast marshmallows while telling funny stories or play a game of Two Truths and a Lie. No need to worry about forgetting a crucial s'mores ingredient or bug spray! When your backyard is the campground, you can always run in and grab what you need. You also have the option to sleep in your own bed if the tent life isn’t your thing! 


With the unusual and challenging year we have had, making plans for enjoying Labor Day is a fun way to lift your spirits and get excited for all that the rest of the year has to offer! One of the greatest takeaways from the new pace of life is that you can have a great time in your own home with a little creativity. Furniture of Dalton is here to help you create the perfect setup to enjoy your Labor Day weekend and beyond. We have a great selection of competitively priced furniture in stock at our 120,000 square-foot showroom. Schedule an appointment today on Facebook or call us at (800) 262-3132. We are open Monday through Saturday from 9 am - 6 pm. We would love to meet with you safely to make your home dreams a reality!

Back to School Tips

As summer draws to an end and we get ready for the transition back to school, preparation this year is sure to look different from years past. Whether you are planning for your children to head back to in-person learning, fully digital learning, or a combination of the two, prepping for you and your children’s “new normal” can be difficult to navigate. We understand, and we wanted to share a few ways you can best prepare for the school year ahead! 


  1. Continue your back-to-school traditions (with slight adjustments). If you always take the kids shopping for back-to-school clothes and new school supplies, continue that tradition, even if it’s online. Even if they will be participating in fully digital learning, continuing habits and traditions that you have practiced in previous years will help make the transition into the new school year feel more familiar. Still take your traditional first day of school photos and, if you’re learning from home, create a new tradition that reinforces the positive side of the new normal like a mid-day dance party. Making this new routine a positive experience is a great way to get your kids excited for the upcoming school year!


  1. Create a structured and inviting learning environment. Teachers do a great job of decorating and arranging their classrooms in fun and engaging ways because they know it affects how their students learn. Even if your child won’t be learning in the traditional classroom this year, you can still create a space at home that encourages learning and creativity. Setting up a desk like they would have in class will help your child recognize that this is the space where they get their schoolwork done. Encourage reading by having a bookshelf stocked with fun, age-appropriate books and create a reading nook with a fun rug and reading chair. If you have young children, try to actively participate in reading with them. If your children are old enough for independent reading, designate 30 minutes to an hour a day of reading. Check out our Pinterest board for more great Homeschool Space Ideas!


 
  1. Incorporate exercise. Learning digitally can be very effective, but it can be difficult to make sure your child is moving and exercising throughout the day. Incorporating a fun family exercise in your day is a great way to help your children burn energy so they can be effective learners. Plus it gets the whole family involved! There are great options online for family-friendly workouts or you can incorporate a fun game or hobby like tennis or walking. Switch it up daily or every few days to make exercise fun and engaging!


No matter what your learning situation looks like this year, know that you are not alone. Every family is facing a new normal that we are each navigating the best we can. At Furniture of Dalton, we are rallying alongside you and would love to help you create a space in your home for digital learning, so that you have the best school year possible! We have a wide selection of desks, bookshelves, comfy reading chairs, and rugs to create a classroom in your home that helps your kids feel ready to learn and excel in the year ahead. Call us today to schedule an appointment or book an appointment online through Facebook. We look forward to helping you navigate these times!

Rug Trends to Inspire Your Next Decorating Project

RUG TRENDS TO INSPIRE YOUR NEXT DECORATING PROJECT

As we prepare to transition into fall, there is no better time to refresh the space in your home that you have been dreaming of updating! Whether that is your living room, foyer, bedroom or dining room, adding or replacing a rug is a great way to add a touch of on-trend style and color, and bring your space together. We have rounded up several rug trends to inspire your next decorating project!


Natural Material Rugs: The use of natural materials like jute, sisal, wool, and silk is a hot trend for good reason. These natural fibers are eco-friendly and incredibly durable. They also add the perfect natural element to a space and balance out bolder choices in accent pieces. 


Rug Layering: Layering rugs is a trend that is here to stay! This popular design technique calls for layering different sized or shaped rugs on top of one another to add dimension and texture to a space. You can go more conservative and layer a bold pattern on top of a more natural base or combine two bolder patterns together to create a completely unique look. 



Fun patterns: From more traditional borders and florals to geometric shapes, rug design trends have varied for years. Oriental rugs are a fun combination of traditional and modern, with timeless design and color mixed with trendy shapes and accent colors. The Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines rug below is a great example of incorporating fun patterns and colors in your rug choice that complement the wood accents and leather beautifully. 



Neutral Hues: Bold colors and patterns from years past are giving way to more earth-tones with minimalistic design and texture. This allows for fun accent pieces like chairs and wall decor to shine on a more neutral canvas. 



If you are loving one of these fun rug trends and considering refreshing your home for fall, you are in luck! Furniture of Dalton’s Last Chance Rug Clearance Sale is happening in-store now. The sale runs from August 1-15 with savings of up to 70% off hundreds of designer rugs! We are open Monday-Saturday from 9 am - 6 pm. We are also open after hours by appointment, which you can schedule on Facebook or by giving us a call at (800) 262-3132. We look forward to helping you create the design aesthetic you have been dreaming of with a gorgeous new rug at a great price!

Waterproof Hardwood

(Calabria Oak-Verona Cafe)


In today’s chaotic world, there is no shortage of potential accidents. Whether you have small kids running in and out of the house with wet feet, or you just got an adorable puppy who is still potty training, keeping your flooring from getting wet isn’t always easy. But just because life is sometimes messy, that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on creating the aesthetic you love in your home. That is why waterproof hardwoods are the perfect solution that allows you to have the look you desire with the functionality that you need.


Carpets of Dalton understands the importance of meeting both your wants and needs when it comes to flooring. We have several options in waterproof flooring that will allow you to bring your vision to life and give you peace of mind from life’s everyday accidents. 


Our waterproof hardwoods are backed with a waterproof core and attached IXPE pad for noise reduction, ensuring that those occasional spills don’t cause warping. The surface is a real wire-brushed hardwood veneer that gives you the authentic look and feel of hardwood, unlike other waterproof flooring options that only mimic the look of hardwood. The surface is also sealed with extra protection from water for easy cleanup. 


The planks come in random lengths to create a more natural look, and they are beveled on all 4 sides with click profiles for fast & easy installation. They are scratch and dent resistant, stain-resistant, and pet-friendly, making them the perfect choice for all seasons of life! 


Waterproof hardwoods also allow you to have the beautiful look of hardwood in places that were previously off-limits like the bathroom or laundry room. This is because you don’t have to worry about the water that will inevitably get onto the floors in these areas. You can simply wipe up large puddles, and go about your day. Waterproof hardwoods are also super easy to clean because they can be mopped, unlike traditional hardwoods.  


(Calabria Oak -Sorrento Brandy)


If you have been dreaming of achieving a real hardwood look in your home, but know that your lifestyle demands something more durable, waterproof hardwood flooring is a perfect choice! Call us at (800) 262-3132 or visit us on Facebook to schedule an appointment today to see all of the great options we have available. You can also check out our website for more details.

Tips for Enjoying Summer at Home

Summer is officially here! That means lots of pool days, backyard BBQ’s, and fun nights outdoors. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we all may be spending more time at home this summer than we are used to, but that doesn’t mean it has to be any less fun-filled and exciting! We have lots of great tips and ideas for enjoying your summer at home.



  1. Family game night (or day!) In the hustle and bustle world that we live in, the art of family game night has somewhat been lost, but if this new pace in life has taught us anything, it is that spending more time with family and friends really is a blast! And what better way to make the most of family time than with a little friendly competition? Host a game night full of board games, BINGO, card games, and more! Set up different stations for the adults and kids or play a favorite for all ages. 

  2. Bring on the water! If there is one thing that is certain during the summer, it's the heat! No need to stay inside during the hot summer days though. If you don’t have a pool to cool off in, there are so many other great ways to incorporate a water day. Buy an inexpensive blow-up pool to splash around or lounge in. Create a DIY water slide like this one from All Things Thrifty or set up a sprinkler for the kids (and adults) to run through. 

  3. Get crafty. Summer is a great time to try out new crafts. The kids have more free time and crafts are a great way to let them get creative while learning a new skill. Happiness is Homemade has several great crafts including a milk carton birdhouse, DIY sidewalk chalk, and much more! If your kids are older or you want an adult craft, you can take on planting projects or make fun hanging lights from materials you have laying around. 

  4. Plan a staycation! Even if your beach plans were muddled this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a great staycation. Enjoying local parks and trails is a great way to explore your own town and see new places that you might not have known about before. Get takeout from local restaurants and enjoy a relaxing evening at home al fresco or indoors if an afternoon shower pops up. Turn your backyard into an oasis complete with lounge chairs, a fun cocktail, and relaxing beach music to recreate the feel of an all-inclusive at a fraction of the cost! 

  5. Spruce up your space. Summer is a great time to work on your home with the extra daylight and gorgeous weather. Whether you want to create an inviting outdoor space, update your bedroom furniture, or replace that mattress that is putting a serious damper on your sleep-in Saturday plans, now is the perfect time to make it happen! 


At Furniture of Dalton, we have everything you need to make staying at home this summer more enjoyable! Take some of our tips for enjoying summer at home and visit our showroom, where we can make all of your staycation dreams come true. Take advantage of our Summer Staycation Financing Event with 0% interest for up to 48 months* going on now through July 31. Click here for financing information.

Father's Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day is quickly approaching and that means finding the perfect gift for the amazing men in our lives. Whether it is your husband’s first Father’s Day or your dad’s 40th Father’s Day, giving a gift that makes him feel loved and appreciated never gets old! We rounded up a few ideas from the awesome team at Furniture of Dalton that are sure to make dad feel special.


  1. A nice addition to his wardrobe. We all know a new tie is the timeless Father’s Day favorite, but a thoughtful piece that plays on dad’s unique hobbies and interests would be a great way to make it personal. If the dad in your life is an avid golfer, a nice golf tee paired with a round of golf at his favorite course could be a real hole in one! Another fun option for the traveler or active dad is a new pair of tennis shoes, so he can hit the ground running. 

  2. The gift of grilling! Every dad needs the perfect grill to show off his culinary skills and the Big Green Egg will do just that. With advanced ceramic material, the Big Green Egg retains moisture in food and will last for years to come! With options to grill, smoke, roast, and bake, there will be no shortage of ideas and recipes for dad to try out all summer long and beyond. Check out these popular recipes and consider making a homemade recipe card to give dad with his new grill or Eggcessories. Come into Furniture of Dalton to check out our selection of Big Green Eggs.



  1. Rest & Relaxation. We know the dads in our lives are always on the go providing for their families, traveling, and helping out around the house, so what better gift than a much-needed opportunity to sit back and relax? Encouraging dad to kick back and relax in one of our super comfy recliners while watching a sporting event or one of his favorite movies would be a dream come true for almost any dad in your life. A personal favorite of ours is the Southern Motion brand as they have options for power recline, headrest, and even lift, so dad will have no problem drifting into his happy place. 

  2. Peace of mind. For the dad who has it all, give the gift of protection for his most valuable possessions with a Champion Gun Safe. Crafted of premium steel, these safes are stronger and more durable than any other safe on the market. With small children or grandchildren around, a gun safe is a perfect way to ensure safety and peace of mind. With fire and water-resistance, a Champion safe is also great for protecting important documents and heirlooms from damage.  


No matter what you decide to get dad this Father’s Day, the simple thought and gesture is sure to be appreciated. If you are still at a loss on the perfect gift, Furniture of Dalton is here to help! Stop by the showroom to browse and ask one of our helpful staff for assistance. Take advantage of $150 off any Recliner, Big Green Egg Package, or Champion Safe in the store June 6-20 with our coupon. We love helping our customers find the perfect gift that is sure to put a smile on dad’s face. To all the new dads, soon-to-be-dads, grand-dads, step-dads, and father-figures in our lives, we wish you a Happy Father’s Day!
