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.

Staff Pick Series: David Paff’s Pick

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

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

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.

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.

The Rocking chair…a Southern staple with health benefits.

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

troutman chairsBy BreeAnn Cook

The front porch rocker is practically a Southern icon and is synonymous with a laid back lifestyle. From birth, we are familiarized with that soothing, rocking motion that seems to melt your cares away, but could there be more benefits than just relaxation? Various studies suggest that simply rocking in a rocking chair can have real health benefits. Late 90’s research at the University of Rochester showed that dementia and Alzheimer patients improved balance, strength and mood from rocking about 20 minutes three times a day. It resulted in happier patients with less anxiety. A teacher in Washington State discovered that his students with ADHD/ADD were able to stay more focused and on task when rocking in a chair, resulting in improved grades.

Rocking therapy has also increased recovery time and reduced the amount of pain medication needed for abdominal surgery patients and women who had C-sections. Of course, mothers instinctively rock their newborns as a means to calm them; therefore, rocking chairs have become common  fixtures in most maternity wards. Rocking not only soothes both mom and baby post birth, but can help relax the mother and reduce pain during labor. Rocking has been used to help with back pain for years, perhaps most notably by President John F. Kennedy. The gentle rocking motion relaxes and stretches the back muscles and it’s been reported that Kennedy had over a dozen rocking chairs, one everywhere he went, included his oval office and Air Force One. The “Carolina Rocker” then made by P& P Chairs became known as the “Kennedy Rocker” and can still be purchased today from Troutman Chair Co., who purchased P&P Chairs in 2008.

We are proud to carry Troutman Chair Co. rockers, made right here in North Carolina. Their superior comfort and construction earned them the title of “World’s Best Rocker”. They feature an arched back rail for shoulder comfort, and steam bent back slats for lumbar support. The seat is sloped in
two directions for extra comfort and the front of the seat is rounded down so as not to restrict circulation. They also use stair stepped side rungs to create just the right pitch for ease of rocking.

To learn more about the health benefits of rocking chairs and the information shared in this post, visit www.rockingchairtherapy.org. To try rocking chair therapy for yourself, visit our showroom today.

sealy

By: BreeAnn Cook

Could there be anything harder to shop for than a mattress? Much like shopping for a car, all the important stuff is hidden “under the hood.” All those layers of foam and springs are concealed inside the mattress. At least with a car, you can peek under the hood, even if you don’t know what you’re looking at. Well, Sealy understands your frustration and they have developed a new icon system that will help you not only identify the mattress contents, but also discover key features that address your sleep needs.

Key Features Include:

– Pressure Relieving Foam that adapts to your body, relieving pressure points for personalized comfort.

–  Zoned Support for reinforcement in the center of the mattress where the heaviest part of your body needs it the most.

– Reinforced edge provides a durable sitting surface and extended sleeping surface.

– Climate control features like moisture wicking fabric and cool to the touch technology helps keep you dry and comfortable.

– Clean technology protects the mattress from common allergens, such as mite dander.

– Adjustable base compatible means that its specifically designed to work with adjustable bases.

– Posturepedic Technology is exclusive to Sealy and provides reinforced support in the mattress quilt area with additional foam.

We are adding the new Sealy mattress Conform and Response line up to our bedding gallery, and we invite you to come give them a try. Be sure to check out the icon located on the end of each bed, highlighting the key features that will help you rest better, and make your mattress shopping experience easier.
