Whether you are selling off your old furniture to make room for new, or you operate one of the biggest furniture chains in your area, a furniture sale is only as good as the advertising that entices prospective buyers to your store/location. Oddly, effective methods do not differ tremendously based upon the size of the store. Of course, the larger the furniture sale, the bigger and more expensive the marketing will be, but all furniture outlets need the same thing. Maybe you’re a big local furniture store needing to liquidate surplus to make room for new stock, or you’re a part of a chain and you’ve gotten a mandate to sell off the “old” stock, you both have the same problem. As a matter of fact, even if you’re a homeowner who just redecorated their dining room has old furniture too nice to throw away that you want to sell; you have the same problem as the big stores, but probably a much smaller budget. Each of you needs customers who are ready to buy. img  In a rocky economy, you can spend your entire ad budget on television, or a print campaign. Try thinking smaller and target specific.

Conservatory Furniture Takes Humidity

Conservatory Furniture Takes Humidity

Conjure up an image of a conservatory. While it’s true that there are buildings called conservatories of music or of art, most would agree the term more often brings to mind a room with lots of glass, plants and an outside-while-inside sort of feeling. That is precisely what I believe a good conservatory should do. It should make you feel like you are in a garden. The advantage of course, is that your conservatory garden can bloom all year long indoors, no matter how cold it is outside. Disadvantages? Well, of course, conservatory furniture does need to withstand a good deal of humidity. To cope with the humidity generated within a glassed room filled with plants and water, furniture manufacturers have fine-tuned the construction of items designed for use in these specialized plant rooms. Naturally water resistant materials like bamboo and teak work well for conservatory furniture, as do manmade materials like plastic. Metal furniture requires a special paint or coating to prevent rust, and is not used as commonly as it once was. One very good idea is using glass or tile-topped tables like the ones so often found around swimming pools. They hold up to the humidity and can...

Café Furniture – Not Just For Bistros Any More!

Café Furniture – Not Just For Bistros Any More!

Warm weather means cleaning up that deck and, even more scary, taking the covers off last year’s patio furniture. It never ceases to amaze me how dull and lackluster good patio furniture looks after two seasons in the sun and a couple more under wraps. I noticed this spring that a neighbor of mine has had great idea. She went out and bought some real café furniture  for her deck this year. Now her back deck looks like a sidewalk in Paris, without the Eiffel Tower, of course. This made me start thinking and looking. During the spring, a walk down any of the popular streets in the downtown area will show you the sidewalk cafes and coffee shops opening up their business onto the sidewalks. Colorful umbrellas spring up from wrought iron or tile topped tables. The chairs range from simple and somewhat uncomfortable, to elegant and quite comfy. Still, don’t expect you’ll find any of these at your neighborhood home improvement center. Still, if there is a need, some enterprising individual will find a way to fill it.Fortunately, a quick look on the world-wide-web turned up a number of vendors selling café furniture of varied types and differing qualities....
