Furniture Just Ain’t What It Used To Be!

It’s true that things made in the past are just better. What do we mean by that? Take furniture for example. We see our fair share of furniture – both new and old. And much of that old furniture is higher quality in materials used and the craftsmanship put into the piece. But sometimes, time, style and wear take its toll on these masterpieces of décor. People put them by the curb and move onto something new. Stop! Don’t get rid of it! Get a slipcover for that oldie but goodie during our Slipcover Sale.

Older furniture is just made better. Back in the day, furniture makers would use kiln dried solid wood frames that are built to last. A lot of the furniture you see in store today (unless you are ordering custom) is made with wood by-products. Some of these pieces are made with wired frames (especially those coming from the Far East, as they weigh less when shipping) or made from soft woods that are not made to last – yep, this is the stuff that you get from IKEA.

When you look at the older chairs and couches, they were made with spring with coil foundations. The only time you’ll see this today is with custom or upper end furniture. Yes, older furniture was definitely made to last. Today’s furniture is made for disposable decorating – you spend less (in the short term, not the long term), so when you are tired of it you can toss without remorse. What a waste!

Why send that furniture to the landfill? Rediscover the joys of older furniture and change up the style with a brand-new, custom-made slipcover? By doing this, you’re keeping old traditions and old memories alive, while adding your own personal style and flair to those modern décor trends you love.
