Vaughan-Bassett partners with hosts of HGTV’s “Home Town”

Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

bowenVaughan-Bassett Furniture Company announced at the Spring 2018 High Point Furniture Market that they will partner with Ben and Erin Napier, the hosts of HGTV’s hit show, “Home Town” to create multiple casegood collections.

As fans of the show “Home Town” already know, the Napiers are dedicated to revitalizing their own home town of Laurel, Mississippi by remodeling homes and breathing life back into the neighborhood. Ben has a workshop where he creates his own furniture designs and Erin uses her designer expertise to pull their remodel projects together. Their dedication even extends to their store, Laurel Mercantile, where they feature products made in the USA. Since the success of their show, multiple companies expressed interest in creating a furniture line for them, but the Napiers really wanted to partner with an American-made manufacturer that shared their vision for supporting American workers. Vaughan-Bassett was a natural partnership, as they are known for fighting to keep furniture production in their home town of Galax, Virginia when other companies were cutting cost by moving production overseas.

The new collections will feature both solid wood and veneered case goods and will debut at the Fall Furniture Market. Stay tuned for details!

Can’t wait until the Fall for new American-made bedroom or dining furniture? Shop our Vaughan-Bassett collection now HERE.

3 Reasons to buy your next mattress at Bowen Town & Country Furniture

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

It’s hard to go anywhere in Winston-Salem and not see a mattress store on the corner. Once you decide on a store, and actually go, you’re bombarded with option after option and brand after brand. So, how do you know what to buy? Maybe the sales associate can shed some light; except, he has only been on the job a week or two and can’t really explain the difference between the higher priced model and the basic model. Well, we at Bowen Town & Country furniture understand the frustration that comes with mattress shopping. We’ve got three reasons why you should buy your mattress from us, and not a big box retailer.

First, we have a knowledgeable staff. Unlike typical retailers, our staff has been in the furniture and mattress industry for some time. Over the years, we’ve learned how to listen to our customers and understand their needs. We then educate our customers on the features of each mattress, and how it
can assist with those needs.

Second, we have a curated selection. We don’t believe you need fifty different options, only to confuse you. Instead, we strive to offer quality mattresses, with features that matter and provide the greatest value to our customers.

Lastly, we have the best delivery team in the business. Our warehouse and delivery team work directly for Bowen, and like the rest of our staff, they’ve been with the company for years. This gives you peace of mind. You know who is entering your home and you know they are experienced.

We hope that you will visit our showroom to check out our selection of Sealy Posturepedic and Tempur-Pedic mattresses or browse our selection online.

Questions? Give us a call, or email us for more information at 336-765-1360, info@bowenfurniture.com.

Staff Pick Series: Holly’s Pick

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

bowen furnitureWe see furniture day in and day out. We’ve seen styles come and go, and then come around again in a new way. With all that change, it can be challenging to pick a favorite, but we do tend to have pieces that we fancy more than others. We thought it would be fun to share each of our staff’s favorite picks and why.

Holly’s Employee pick…

If you’ve had the opportunity to meet our newest team member, Holly, then you know she has a vivacious personality. So, it comes as no surprise that her employee pick is a chair that truly allows her to express her individual taste. The Bradstreet chair by C.R.Laine has classic appeal, that can take on a bold twist when upholstered in one of the many fashion forward fabric options in the line.

Pair that with any custom matched Benjamin Moore paint color of your choice, and finish the look with custom trim options like nail-head, contrast fabric or decorative banding, for a look that is uniquely you. Not only does the Bradstreet chair make a killer style statement, it’s also incredibly comfortable. What’s not to love? Check it out HERE, or visit our showroom to see the fabric selections.

Questions? Give us a call, or email us for more information at 336-765-1360, info@bowenfurniture.com.

Staff Pick Series: David Paff’s Pick

bowen furnitureStaff Pick Series…

We see furniture day in and day out. We’ve seen styles come and go, and then come around again in a new way. With all that change, it can be challenging to pick a favorite, but we do tend to have pieces that we fancy more than others. We thought it would be fun to share each of our staff’s favorite picks and why.

David Paff’s employee pick…

David appreciates the quality story of solid wood furniture, but he also likes a break from the traditional style that tends to accompany it. That’s why he chose the new Plank Road dining collection from Kincaid as his employee pick. Plank Road offers solid wood construction, with a reclaimed barn wood feel, making it an excellent choice for active families. Available in two finish options, Charcoal and Stone, it has clean lines with simple metal details that seamlessly blends modern and vintage styling. Also, the collection offers a variety of seating and storage options, allowing you to mix and match for your lifestyle. A pair of Oakley upholstered hostess chairs, mixed with ladderback side chairs, and even an upholstered bench gives flexible seating options, and creates an eclectic blend that’s unique and different, not so cookie cutter. Visit our showroom to see Plank Road dining or shop the collection HERE.

Staff Pick Series: Garry Christ’s Pick

furniture winston salemStaff Pick Series

We see furniture day in and day out. We’ve seen styles come and go, and then come around again in a new way. With all that change, it can be challenging to pick a favorite, but we do tend to have pieces that we fancy more than others. We thought it would be fun to share each of our staff’s favorite picks and why.

Garry Crist’s employee pick

Comfort and value are two things that rank highly on Garry’s list. That why his employee pick is the Dalton Sofa with chaise from Rowe furniture. This particular sofa chaise combo offers the functionality of a small sectional with the flexibility of a standard sofa.

Unlike most sectionals, it features an independent storage ottoman, and a separate chaise cushion, so the chaise portion can be flipped from the right hand of the sofa to the left. It also comes with an extra seat cushion allowing it to be used as just a sofa. What this means for you is no fear of commitment that comes with a typical sectional, where you are forced to choose between a left or right-hand chaise, limiting your furniture layout possibilities.

With hundreds of fabric options, and pricing starting at just $1500, this sofa chaise combo is an incredible value. And Garry knows first hand how comfortable it is to stretch out on, since both of his children own one. You really can’t get a better testimonial than that!

Questions? Give us a call, or email us for more information at 336-765-1360, info@bowenfurniture.com.

We see furniture day in and day out. We’ve seen styles come and go, and then come around again in a new way. With all that change, it can be challenging to pick a favorite, but we do tend to have pieces that we fancy more than others. We thought it would be fun to share each of our staff’s favorite picks and why.

Steve Rice’s employee pick

With 30 years of experience in furniture, salesman, Steve Rice knows how to recognize quality craftsmanship. Which is exactly why he selected the New England Cabinet from Palettes by Winesburg as his employee pick.

This solid cherry cabinet features simple yet elegant lines that make it a classic addition to any room, not just a dining room. It’s unique combination of glass and wood panel doors allow for both display and hidden storage.

It also features accent lighting that is activated by a simple touch of the hinge, so you can highlight your decorative items displayed in the glass portion. Michaels finish on Cherry is a favorite combination, but this cabinet can be custom ordered in maple, cherry, or oak in a variety of finishes.

What to consider when buying a guest room mattress?

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

bowen furniture

By: BreeAnn Cook

Let’s be honest…shopping for a mattress doesn’t rank highly on most people’s list of fun things to do. In fact, it is probably one of your the least favorite things. Considering that most of us are not planning to sleep on it, we probably do not put much time or effort into selecting a guest room mattress. However, if you’ve ever spent the night at a family member or friend’s house, and experienced a bad mattress, you may think twice before making that purchase. Here are a few things to consider when buying a mattress for a guest space.

1. Who will be using the mattress? If you host mostly couples, consider mattresses with encased coil technology. Encased coils reduce motion transfer, helping to eliminate partner interruption, which is one of the main causes of sleep loss. Memory foam mattresses also absorb motion transfer. Will you be hosting mostly younger guests, like grandchildren? Don’t assume that just because they are young the mattress isn’t important. Growing children require more sleep than adults, and a quality mattress will help them get a better night’s sleep.

2. How frequently will the mattress be used? If a guest room gets used once or twice a year, it can be tempting to go with the cheapest option possible. Unfortunately, this can be a bad move for both you and your occasional guests. What if your aging parent goes from a twice a year guest to a long-term guest, or you find yourself sleeping in the guest room while your spouse is sick? Suddenly, you regret buying that $299 mattress. Make sure to select a mattress that you would enjoy sleeping on for more than a night. That doesn’t mean it has to be the most expensive, but it should offer adequate support and be comfortable.

3. Memory foam versus Innerspring? Sealy really explains it best when describing their new Response and Conform line. The Response line is an innerspring style mattress offering support that “holds” you, while the Conform line is a memory foam style mattress offering support that “hugs” you. If you can’t decide, go with a Hybrid model that offers the best of both worlds.

Whether it’s for a few nights or a few months, you want your guests to be comfortable. You don’t have to spend a lot of time, or a small fortunate to get a good quality mattress, but you do have to be willing to educate yourself on the options and try a few models. Visit our showroom today to try our Sealy lineup, and find a mattress that will make you and your guest happy.

Leather

Monday, September 11th, 2017

By: BreeAnn Cook

Leather can be a beautiful and durable option for your home, but it’s important to know which the best choice for your lifestyle is. Here are few leather definitions that will help you make the right selection:

Aniline refers to leather that has been dyed all the way through with a transparent dye. Only the highest quality leathers are used for this process
because natural markings will show through the transparent dye. The natural softness of the leather is preserved but it is more susceptible to staining or soiling, so it is a good choice for furniture that will have light to moderate use.

Semi Aniline is an aniline dyed leather that has an added top coat of pigment creating more uniform color and protection . This type of leather is a good option for upholstery that will be used regularly.

Pigmented (protected) leather is first buffed to a uniform surface and then coated with pigment to create uniform color. This provides durability and
hides natural blemishes, making it more resistant to staining and fading, and thus lower maintenance. Consider protected leather for heavily used
upholstery.

Grain is a term used to describe the wrinkles, markings, texture, and other natural characteristics of a hide.

Top Grain is the outermost layer of a hide and is the most durable.

Full Grain is that leather that has not been altered other than the removal of hair. It is the most genuine type of leather, and retains its original texture
and markings.

Corrected Grain leather has been buffed to remove blemishes then covered with a new, artificial grain created using pigments and other finishes.

Split leather is made of the lower layer of hide that has been “split” away from the upper grain. It is more fragile than full grain leather and is often
used for suede.

Suede is split leather that has been buffed and brushed to create a fuzzy surface feel.

Nubuck is leather that has been buffed and brushed to create a soft, velvety effect. It is created from the out grain of the hide, unlike suede which is
created from the inner side of the hide, making it stronger and more durable.

The most important factor when shopping for leather furniture is the intended use. Be sure to consider how you will live in the furniture, and
select a leather type appropriate to that use. Unprotected leather can feel luxurious and exude natural beauty, but its not the best choice for an active
family or pets. To learn more about leather options or to see our selection, visit our showroom today.
