22_738_SM09_medium“We strive to make furniture of such impeccable quality that it brings joy not only to the people who own it, but also to the craftsmen who build it.” – Harley F. Shuford, Sr., founder, Century Furniture.

Until you’ve fallen in love sofas or a piece of furniture, you might find yourself scoffing at someone who talks about their new loveseat or recliner like it’s a member of the family. But once you’ve felt that connection, you’ll understand completely what it’s like to own a piece of furniture that brings you joy.

At Century Furniture, their goal is to create furniture that will not only be functional, but will also bring joy to those who come in contact with it. Since 1947, this family owned and operated business in Hickory, N.C. has been creating quality furnishings for the homes of people here in the United States as well as around the world.

Of course, Century produces a wide variety of furnishings, from beds and cabinets to dining tables and accessories. But what we’ll focus on today is the infinite number of choices available when it comes to sofas. There are quite a few different designs to choose from, ranging from formal to casual, all with comfort in mind as well as style.

Once you’ve found the style to fit your home, you can make it uniquely yours. More than 2,000 fabrics and over 50 finishes to choose from allow for infinite possibilities. Whether you’re trying to match existing décor or strike out with a bold new style, you’ll be sure to find something to help realize the images you’ve created in your head.

Come in to Bowen Town & Country Furniture today to see for yourself just how comfortable the sofas from Century Furniture are, as well as stylish. And when you do make your purchase, one that we’re sure you’ll love, you can be proud to know the furniture was manufactured right here in the United States, but craftsmen from our neighboring furniture metropolis, Hickory.

Make a New Dining Room Table the Centerpiece of Family Dinners!

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

School is now in full swing, and for many families that means shuffling kids to soccer practice, piano lessons, play dates, gymnastics, dance, football practice and so much more. When does sitting down to dinner together, for good food and conversation, fit into that busy schedule? Unfortunately, sometimes it doesn’t. Grabbing food on the go and eating in the car is sometimes a necessity. But that doesn’t have to be the norm!Here at Bowen Town & Country furniture, we know how important family meal times are.

Studies have shown that children in families who eat dinner together are less likely to use drugs, become obese or develop eating disorders, and they also have better academic performance and higher self esteem. When you see all of that, who wouldn’t want to put out some placemats and set aside a few minutes to eat and share your day?

The Food

Don’t have time to cook? Don’t worry. You can find great ideas for quick and easy family meals on a few of our favorite websites:

The Setting

Once you have those meals made, gather around the dining room table for some quality family time.

We have some fabulous dining room furniture on display in our showroom, and even more that we can special order from our trusted manufacturers. We want to make sure that our tables make it into your home not only to provide a great look for your dining room, but also to entice you to use them and bring the family together!

One of our favorite lines of tables comes from Kincaid, a furniture company with solid-wood products made right here in the United States. No matter what your style, Kincaid is sure to have something you’re looking for. Here are a few of their many options:

Sunburst Gate Leg: perfect for the family that needs to be flexible, as this table has two leaves to go from an intimate setting to a table that seats the extended family for holiday meals.

Carriage House: This line has a classic look that works well in old Southern homes and new ones alike.

Weatherford: Those of you with a more casual style will appreciate this light-colored wood furniture.

Artisan’s Shoppe: Design your own dining room table, make it round or rectangle, and match your existing décor with a wide range of woods and finishes to choose from.

Come in to Bowen Town & Country Furniture today to check out the latest styles from Kincaid and other quality manufacturers. With a new dining room table in your home, you might never eat in the car again!

Better Sleep for Better Health!

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

banner_mattressesWe all know we perform better and feel better when we have better sleep, but how do you make that happen when there are so many things to be done for work and around the house? Not to mention that many of us might want to hit the sack, but once we do it’s hard to get to sleep due to one of the many sleep disorders. According to the CDC, 50-70 million Americans have a sleep or wakefulness disorder.

With sleep insufficiency linked to car crashes, errors on the job and even industrial disasters, the CDC has declared insufficient sleep a public health epidemic.

So look at it this way, it’s up to us to get enough sleep and keep America running at top speed! Most adults need 7-9 hours of sleep per night. And what better way to do that than with a new mattress? Finding a mattress that fits your preferences and feels comfortable will go a long way toward helping you get night’s sleep.

For years people just assumed that a firm mattress was the way to go, but that’s not necessarily the case. Some people prefer firm, while others like a softer sleeping surface, but no matter which way you go when you purchase a high-quality mattress you can rest assured you are getting the support you need to avoid a sore back while finding the ultimate comfort for your personal perfect night’s sleep.

Here at Bowen Town & Country Furniture we have a wide range of mattresses to choose from, everything from the high-end adjustable mattresses to more economical choices. But every single one is a well-made mattress, constructed from quality materials and coming from trusted manufacturers. In our showroom you will find:

  • The newest styles from Tempur-Pedic, including their newest Tempur-Breeze mattress, with three layers of cooling technology to help you sleep cool, even on the hottest nights.
  • A variety of lines from Therapedic, including Agility mattresses made with coils encased in a 3-way stretch fabric to allow for 360 degree movement, Back Sense mattresses with increased support at the shoulders, hips and lumbar area, and Innergy mattresses with an exclusive coil design that virtually eliminates motion transfer.

Come in today to check out the great lines we have to offer, and find out what’s right for you by talking with our knowledgeable sales staff.

Spotlight on Southern Motion

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

somoThere was a time when recliners basically did two things: reclined and put a foot-rest up. The tried-and-true wooden handle was the magic lever that put you back into the perfect resting position. That is, if you wanted to look one way. But what if you want to recline, but would like to be able to see your television, while once in a while looking at your spouse? Or maybe you’d rather rock and not recline? With the extensive line of recliners from Southern Motion, all made in America, you can find a chair that will do whatever you want it to! Here are some of the features and choices you will find in the many recliners coming from Southern Motion.

  • Power features. Gone are the days of wrestling down the foot rest while grabbing onto the wooden lever. Southern Motion offers a wide range of power recliners that do the work for you.
  • Rocking and swiveling. You’re not stuck in one place once you take a seat in Southern Motion recliners! Whether you’d like to rock your grandchild to sleep or be able to move around to engage in conversations around the room, you can find a chair that rocks or swivels, or both!
  • Wall-hugging designs. You no longer have to work around a recliner sitting out in the middle of the room with a wall-hugger recliner that can be placed just inches from the wall.
  • Sofas and Sectionals. Decorate your living areas and home theater with comfortable reclining seats. The many choices from Southern Motion include theater-style seating as well as sofas and sectionals.

In addition to making styles that move, Southern Motion is also in tune with the latest trends in home décor. Choose from stylish upholsteries and many different leathers to get just the right look for your home.
