Functional for family, friends or any occasion … That’s what we had in mind when we designed our Sectional for your varied lifestyle.

Our Exceptional Sectional Debuts

Available in all 5 collections, this Exceptional Sectional still demands our promise of quality and long-lasting durability. The design makes it especially easy to transport up flights of stairs, through elevators, boat hatches, RVs and 5th-wheel units. Like all other Simplicity Sofas products, it is easy-to-assemble in minutes with no tools.

You’ve always longed for comfortable living with a Sectional, now you have it; and you can place it anywhere! You can design it to fit your needs, whether it’s just for you or the entire family.

Design your own configuration or give us a call and we’ll help you decide the best fit for your space. Select your style from our Collections Page. Then add the pieces as needed.

It is possible to have a sleeper with the sectional as long as you have 3 arm or armless sections in a row.

Made in North Carolina, or MINNC for short, is currently a general list of useful North Carolina website links. Check back often, as their Website will grow and become a very comprehensive site for North Carolina’s most resourceful links. These resources can help you find N.C. products, places and information easily. There are also over 180 original photographs on the pages. As they continue to travel throughout the state, more links and photos will be added. They have just started adding selected, local producers of N.C. products that can be purchased directly, such as their new featured addition, Simplicity Sofas.  That would be us!

Coming this year, expect more local producers on the MINNC website and a gallery of photos by region (available for purchase in the future). Look for information on upcoming projects, as they are constantly adding to their Website.

About the Company

December 9, 2009 by  
Filed under Sofa Studio

In November, 2007, a few weeks before our current recession began, Simplicity Sofas opened its factory doors with No sales, No backlog and No commitments and a brand new product that nobody had ever heard of.  In the recession the furniture industry has been one of the hardest hit sectors of the economy.  Hundreds of well known companies closed down or moved overseas.  Small furniture businesses were particularly hard hit.  Defying these industry statistics, Simplicity Sofas has grown quickly and profitably. The company has never taken a loan and has no debt.

This year we are on target to hit $1 million in sales. That may not seem like much to other manufacturers who can sell more than that in a single order to a large retailer.  Simplicity Sofas, however, does not sell to retailers, wholesalers or distributors. Every order is shipped direct to an individual consumer. That’s nearly 800 individual orders annually.

The most important part of our phenomenal success in this harsh economic environment is the loyalty and enthusiasm of our customers.  There are hundreds of testimonials about our products and service on blogs and other web sites. We are also extremely proud that we have now shipped our furniture to more than 1500 individual customers over more than 3 years and have never received a negative review.  That does not mean our customers never have any complaints or problems.  It does mean that when there is a complaint or problem we take care of it.

“Kid-Proof" Fabrics

November 2, 2009 by

Got Pets or Children? Most people do.

Altima Merlot Pet Proof FabricDo you live where your children and pets run around inside and outside? If so, you know how time consuming it can be to clean up after them. Most of our children and furry friends like to enjoy the same comforts of home that we do by  napping or playing on our sofas and sometimes, accidents happen.

Simplicity Sofas offers “kid proof” fabrics specifically engineered for people who don’t want to worry about dirt or stains on their sofas or couches.

Originally created for health care facilities where cleanliness is mandatory, the engineers at Microfibres, Inc. (an American fabric manufacturer) came up with an exclusive process for binding a permanent protective coating into the fibers of the fabrics. The protection does not wear off like spray-on fabric protectors. In factory tests the only stain that could not be removed with soap and water was mustard.

Altima Sand 'Pet-Proof FabricWe ran a test in our Showroom on our Altima Sand “kid-proof” fabric (an off-white color) to see how stain-proof it was. We drew one line with a ballpoint pen and then another line with a thick, black new permanent marker. We allowed both stains to set for about an hour. We then tried to clean the stains using liquid hand soap and a paper towel. The ball point pen ink came out in a few seconds.

The permanent marker stain was almost completely gone after 5 minutes of scrubbing. The stain proofing is built into the fibers. You do not need the spray-on fabric protection with the microfiber “kid-proof” fabrics. We do highly recommend the spray-on fabric protection for the cotton fabrics.

Even if you don’t have kids or pets, these fabrics are wonderful solutions for high traffic areas like the den or family room, where people aren’t always careful about where they spill things or where they rest their feet to watch TV. “Kid-proof” fabrics can be your solution to these problems. If an accident should occur, these fabrics clean easily with a little soap and water and dry very fast.

Here are just a few examples of our “kid-proof” fabric swatches that you can order online today!
