Home. It’s where the heart is and now, more than ever, it seems to be where just about everything else is too. Never before has home been a more central hub to practically every facet of our lives and intertwined with our day-to-day challenges and triumphs. Home is no longer just home. For many, it has been redefined as the gym, the office, the classroom and the weekend gathering place, and then to top it off, where we retreat to get away from it all. Home has now become the centerpiece of our lives and the comforts of home have taken on a whole new meaning, and value.
Spending so much time around the house over the last several months has likely brought into focus the things you love and the things you don’t, the things you can live with and the things you can’t live without. And if you ask us, we can’t live without quality upholstery — it’s the hardest working furniture in the house and the anchor in most every room. So while you may have put off investing in a new sofa or sectional in the past because it felt unnecessary or even frivolous, you may now see that investment as a valuable one in your own well-being and that of your loved ones.
We believe upholstery is not only worth the investment but is paramount to cultivating comfort and creating a space that encourages people to come together. From family movie night to intimate gatherings with friends, having comfortable places for everyone to sit and relax is key. That cozy feeling of not wanting to get up and giving yourself permission to linger a while longer is the simple stuff in life that nurtures and delights. So now just may be the perfect time to look for that new piece and the return on your investment will be measured by the increased comfort and joy you feel every time you take a seat.

It is their uniquely smart, healthy, responsible, alternative method of building furniture made entirely from FSC Woods, Natural Latex, Jute, Hemp, Wool, Organic Feathers and Down. These natural materials are not only superior in terms of comfort and lifespan, but are inherently flame retardant without the use of chemicals. Every product in the Cisco line can be ordered and built Inside Green™.
• DESIGNER TIP •
Quality upholstery will last for many years so be sure to choose a frame and fabric that will also stand the test of time. Stick to a classic silhouette and neutral color palette that is easy to live with and won’t go out of style. Introduce color and pattern with throw pillows or other accent pieces — like an ottoman or occasional chair — but keep the foundational pieces in your space timeless.
