And this problem?

I have heard from so many customers about these problems and we were able to help them all. One customer sat on a chair for two years because she was unable to get a sofa into her apartment. Another finished her basement and realized she could not get any sofas down the stairs. Her contractor told her he would break open a wall for her to put in a sofa and would reseal it when she was done. More money to be spent and she would have to do it all over again if she ever decided to change her sofa! You can pay someone $500 or more to take apart your sofa and then put it back together. The problem is that the sofa was not meant to be taken apart and will never be the same as when you purchased it.
When purchasing a sofa (especially in areas like NYC) the sales representative should really ask: How wide is your doorway? Do you have narrow or spiral stairway? Do you have an elevator?
Once you make that purchase and they try to deliver it sometimes it’s too late. Some companies will not take back the product, and others will charge you a restocking fee.
I love it when a customer calls and tells me I AM SO GLAD I FOUND YOU!

Let’s talk Slipcovers!

If the budget doesn’t allow for all new furniture, there is an alternative. Slipcovers can provide a quick and easy makeover for any room in your home.

Slipcovers are very versatile and you can change the entire color palette of a room.  Dark upholstery pieces that create a warm, inviting atmosphere in the winter months may seem a bit too warm for spring and summer. Solution: Light Colors which can create a cool haven for those hot, humid days.

Do you have kids and pets? Slipcovers can be a relatively inexpensive way to extend the life of your new furniture. Just think, when the kids head off to college, you can whip off the slipcover and have a brand-new sofa!

Ready-made slipcovers are available in most home-decor stores and catalogs, but will not fit like a custom fitted slipcover.  They come in a variety of styles and sizes. Custom fitted slipcovers are also an option from Simplicity Sofas, but only for our sofas, chairs and sectionals.  The great feature of a custom fitted slipcover is that you do not need to tuck in the fabric every time you get up.  The main part of the slipcover fits over the entire base and each cushion has its own cover.  The pictures below explain it all.

Be Bold

Don’t be afraid to use color in your slipcovers when designing your space.  A festive red sofa with patterned slipcovers for an extra splash of color.  Lightly painted walls and open windows create an open airy space.

Below are several pictures of slipcovers and styles

ALL ABOUT SECTIONALS FOR SMALL & TIGHT SPACES

Have a small space and always dreamed of a sectional?

You DON’T need to give up your dreams.

All Sectionals can be rearranged in a matter of minutes and will fit thru any opening of 15” or wider. Additional Armless pieces can be added as needed or removed and can be used as Armless chairs. The “L” can be moved from left to right in just a few minutes just in case  you want to place it in another room or if you move and need a different layout.  It can be taken apart and reassembled over and over without damaging the integrity of the pieces.   All units are 30.5” deep and 35” high.

If you want a lot of seating with more open space the sectional is the way to go.  Here are several pictures showing sectionals from a 4 piece to an 11 piece.

Small Space Living Tips

Simplicity Sofas loves small living spaces. We don’t shy away from a challenge. We’ve never been defeated by a narrow hallway or a twisted stairway. Recently, we sold our 2,500th Simplicity Sofa without one single customer complaint!

In the years we’ve been serving small space dwellers, we’ve learned a lot about how all of you are living small, but not FEELING small. Here are a couple of tips on how to make your small space bigger courtesy of our pal Nike Onile over at her blog Eight Hundred Sq. Ft. from her recent blog post, “Small Space Solutions – 8 Rules for Stylish Living in 800 sq. ft'”

Small Sofas for Small Spaces

#1 Fill your space with right size furniture.
Living in an apartment, condo, or loft requires scaled down furntiure. Here you see our award winning Megan sofa. This stylish, comfortable sofa is perfect for your small space. Pictured above is the Megan apartment size sofa: Dimensions are 68Wx34Dx35H. Apartment dwellers love this sofa as we see in this testimonial:

“I just had the greatest experience with this company, Simplicity Sofas. I am thrilled with my new sofa. The quality is wonderful, they were great to work with guiding me through the process throughout, and it really did only take me 15 minutes to assemble my sofa. It is a full size sofa that I was able to fit through a very narrow doorway. It is not like other modular pieces of furniture I’ve owned that were more of “recreation room” quality. This is a first rate piece of furniture. Luxurious and manufactured with quality materials. I’m so glad I found them.”

#2 Use Vertical Space Stand in the middle of your living space and look up.
Chances are you’ll see lots of unused space you could take advantage of that would make your home appear and feel larger.

#3 Lights and Mirrors
Lights and mirrors are essential to the person living in a small space. Mirrors give the appearance of more space and interesting lighting make use of reflective surfaces and add style and glamour to you home.
