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.

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.

What you need to know before buying a sectional

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

sofasBy: BreeAnn Cook

Most homes today embrace the open concept floor plan, with fewer walls and larger, more spacious living areas. Unfortunately, with so much openness, it can be challenging to arrange furniture. Sectionals are a popular choice for defining the living room, but they can be tricky to order. Here are few things you need to know about ordering a sectional.

1. They are left and right hand pieces, labeled LAF or RAF, meaning left hand facing or right hand facing. When you are facing the piece of furniture, the arm will be either on the left or the right respectively. Some manufacturers will label them LSE or RSE, which means left seated end or right seated end. When you are seated in the piece, the arm will be on your left or right. Make sure you pay attention to these labels and arm placement, to confirm that you purchasing the correct configuration.

2. Most manufacturers offer a sofa with a built in corner. Corner pieces are required when creating an “L” shape, but a built in corner unit often saves money as it reduces the number pieces required. When looking at the component options, be sure to look for the word “corner” when selecting sofa pieces. These can often be mistaken for a left or right sofa piece, especially when looking at line drawings only.

3. Wedge pieces tend to be large and take up more space. If you are trying to conserve space, opt for a corner unit instead of the wedge.

4. Consider seam placement. Since a sectional consists of multiple pieces connected together, there will be seams where each connects. Careful planning will help you conceal these seams. This is another example where using a sofa with built in corner is a good idea, as it eliminates a seam, at least on one side of the sectional. If one portion of the sectional will back up against a wall, plan to have the seam against the wall, not on the floating portion of the sectional. Sometimes, seams cannot be avoided, and in those cases, adding a console table behind the sectional will hide unsightly junctions.

5. Speaking of connections… be sure to ask about how the sectional clips together. You want to make certain that the manufacturer offers some sort of clip system, so that your pieces will stay connected and not move. There are different types of clips and some are easier to reconnect than others. Don’t be afraid to ask your sales person for a demonstration, so that you will know how to fix the issue if your sectional becomes unclipped.

Take your time, draw a sketch if needed, and double check item descriptions before placing your order. Start shopping our sectional selection today. Questions? Give us a call, or email us for more information at 336-765-1360, info@bowenfurniture.com.

Best of 2016

Friday, December 30th, 2016

bowenBy: BreeAnn Cook

As the year has come to an end, we are reviewing the best of 2016. Check out the furniture selections that were most popular with our customers this year.

#1 Hi-leg Recliner. The Woodbridge recliner from Hancock and Moore is a true traditional and our customers love the classic appeal. Most popular in leather, it’s extremely comfortable without being too bulky.

#1 Sofa. The Cindy Sofa by Robin Bruce earned the number one spot for comfort, because of the feather soft cushion that comes as a standard option. Simple rolled arms and turned legs means it will blend with most décor styles.

# 1 Sectional. Whether you prefer a traditional or more transitional style sectional, you can create it with the Custom Select series from Kincaid. The many style and size options make this sectional series a popular choice.

#1 Bedroom. The Reflections collection from Vaughn Bassett has been a favorite for some time, particularly in the medium cherry finish. This year, the dark cherry finish has grown in popularity. Offering simple lines and not overly adorned, it appeals to both young and old.

#1 Dining. When it comes to dining furniture, our customers love the quality story of Amish made. Top pick is the boat shape table paired with prestige chair from Palettes by Winesburg. The boat shape table is unique in shape and the prestige chair is surprisingly comfortable with its bent wood lumbar support.

After a great year, we are eager to see what 2017 holds for us at Bowen Town & Country. If new furniture is in your future for the upcoming year, we hope that you will find this list helpful, and we invite you to visit our showroom to see all we have to offer.

What is Hollywood Glam Style?

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

hooker furnitureBy: BreeAnn Cook

As the name indicates, this design style hales from the silver screen of Hollywood, and being true to its origin, is oh so theatrical and dramatic. It draws inspiration from Art Deco, Modern and Neo-classical styles, layering luxury and glitz with modestly scaled furnishings. The result is a show stopping aesthetic. Unlike Baroque, it’s not garish or overdone, but rather well edited. It is neither cluttered nor minimalistic. Finishes are often glossy or reflective such as lacquered or even mirrored. High contrast in black and white is a key component of the style, but color is also used in bold and purposeful ways to add drama. Prints utilized are geometrics, stripes or gilded Chinoiserie motifs. For fabrics, they must be lush and luxurious like velvet, silk or satin; maybe even a little fur. Lighting is used as an opportunity to make a statement, such as chandeliers dripping in crystals or a funky deco fixture.

Just as Hollywood Glam was influenced by other notable styles, it has made its own impression on popular design styles of today. One will often hear the term glam added to rustic, modern or bohemian style. It can also be used interchangeably with the term luxe.

Adding a little glam to your current style is simple. Switch out your existing toss pillows for something more luxurious. Dress your windows with velvet or silk drapes that break on the floor for drama. Create a stunning focal point with a symmetrical grouping of mirrors. Purchase a new lamp that really sparkles or add a mirrored accent piece. Make the most rudimentary room feel special with a glistening chandelier. However you decide to glamorize your space, we can help you set the stage. Visit BowenFurniture.com to see our selection of lamps, mirrors, and furnishing to help capture that Hollywood spirit.

The Dangers of Furniture Tip-over

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

TV tip overBy: BreeAnn Cook, Interior Designer

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission a child dies every two weeks due to the tip-over of furniture, a television or appliance. Prevent this from happening to a child you love by educating yourself on the issue and how to prevent it.

Children are often tempted to climb on furniture in order to access something out of reach, like a toy or a light switch. Unfortunately, when they climb on a top heavy piece of furniture like a chest of drawers, the piece can tip over injuring or killing the child. Securing furniture to the wall using L-brackets or a furniture tip-over strap kit can help prevent this. Many manufacturers have started including tip-over anchoring kits with their furniture. Make sure you inspect all new furniture to see if it contains a kit, and install it following the manufacturer’s directions. If a kit is not included, they can be purchased online or in hardware stores. Remember that if a piece is long or extra top heavy, it may require two straps.

When selecting furniture for a television, make sure you are purchasing a piece that is sturdy and the appropriate size. Consoles that are too small for the TV are more unstable. Then make sure you are securing both the tv and the console to the wall. Lastly, remove items like toys or remotes, which may be a temptation to children and encourage climbing.
