Vaughn Bassett Bedroom Furniture – Made in America

We have been very impressed with the bedroom sets from Vaughn Bassett. Watch the video below for more information.

The BB4 Hamilton and BB5 Franklin Bedroom furniture is made in America by Vaughn Bassett. These bedrooms sets are made from American hardwood solids and veneers. You can see these bedroom sets at DFW Furniture in Columbus Ohio, Pittsburgh PA and other Designer Furniture stores in Ohio, Pennsylvania and KY.
Vaughan-Bassett Furniture Company is committed to manufacturing its furniture in a responsible and environmentally friendly manner. Through its “One for One” program, Vaughan-Bassett has contributed 150,000 tree seedlings in 2007 to the Virginia Department of Forestry.

The planting of these 150,000 maple, oak, ash, pine, poplar and applewood trees allows the replacement of every tree used in the production of the company’s bedroom suites. It covers the trees used in all domestic production (96 percent of our total) and the 4 percent that is imported. Carl E. Garrison III, a Virginia state forester, writes: “Your idea to plant one new tree in Virginia for every tree you harvest each year is sustainability at its best.”

Vaughan-Bassett has also installed $2 million state-of-the-art rough end systems in each of its two factories. These computerized rough end systems have increased the lumber yield by over 20 percent, thereby significantly reducing the number of trees needed to produce furniture.

Vaughan-Bassett is a leader in the “Buy Local” movement. Over 99 percent of its lumber comes from within 500 miles of its factories – 80 percent from within 200 miles, reducing the carbon footprint associated with the transport of primary raw material.

Vaughan-Bassett is a founding member of the Sustainable Furniture Council and is committed to a program of continuous improvement of its systems, striving to be an industry leader in producing environmentally responsible bedroom furniture.

What Should You Put at the End of Your Bed?

Are you fortunate to have a bedroom large enough to place a piece of furniture at the end of your bed? Many years ago as a gift my husband and I were given an antique chest. It just so happened to match our bedroom furniture to a tee. It is placed at the foot of our bed. It really makes the room, not to mention it has served many purposes over the years.

Whether you’re looking for beauty or function, there are lots of ways to use this found space. You can find interesting pieces at tag sales or flea markets, or choose a special piece for your room.

Depending on the amount of space you have, you’re sure to find the perfect piece from my ideas listed below.

TV Cabinet- The newest “must have” for a bedroom is a cabinet with a TV that goes up and down at the touch of a remote control button. By day, you have a cabinet or bench, and by night you have an eye-level flat screen TV. What a luxury!

A Large Upholstered Bench- A large bench or ottoman can catch your bedspread at night, hold a tray of goodies, or serve as a great place to sit. Be sure to choose a fabric cover that enhances your decor and give it a seasonal change with a soft, cuddly throw in the winter or light, sheer slipcover for summer.

Skirted Table- If you have a small round, oblong, or oval table, this will work perfectly. Purchase or make a floor-length tablecloth that coordinates with the decor of your room. If you have more space, add a small side chair on each end of the table.

Pair of Chairs- If you love to read in your room, you could place two small upholstered armchairs or side chairs at the end of your bed. With an ottoman and small reading lamp, you’ll have a comfortable, private reading nook.

Loveseat- A small loveseat is great at the end of a queen or king size bed. Have a good floor lamp close by for reading and decorate the loveseat with a soft blanket and pretty decorative pillows.

Wicker or Iron Bench or Seat- The end of a bed is a great place to put an unusual piece of furniture, one that has “character.” Iron and wicker look great in casual interiors or rooms with a vintage look. Add a pretty plaid or floral cushion to coordinate with the rest of the room.

Writing Desk- With a small writing desk at the end of your bed, you’ll be able to use and enjoy your bedroom during the day. Read your mail, write a letter, make your shopping list or a phone call in the comfort of your own bedroom.

Table- A pedestal or library table can provide space for books, collections, family photos, or a small television.

With all these ideas, you’re sure to find the perfect piece to put at the end of your bed.

Mistakes to avoid when buying furniture

Learn how to avoid making costly mistakes when buying furniture for your home. By doing so you just need to do a little preparation ahead of time.

Measure: Don’t neglect to measure the room ahead of buying to see if your new furniture will fit. You will be amazed at the number of furniture purchases that never make it into a home because the buyer neglected to measure the furniture or forgot to take into account hallways, doors, elevators and stairs.

Scale: A sofa that looks right in the store, might look too big or not big enough. It is hard to judge when you’re looking at a picture or seeing it in a showroom. Also measure to make sure that your new piece matches the scale of the furniture you already own.

Not Paying Enough Attention to Color: A color that doesn’t look overpowering in the showroom, could do so in your home. You should also bring home a color swatch or a pillow to see how it would look in your home. Also, when buying on the internet, be aware that the color on a monitor looks slightly different on a real sofa. Request a fabric swatch as many companies will provide one if asked.

Stay Away From Fads: It is best to buy a piece of furniture that you will feel comfortable with for years to come. That goes for color as well as style. Fads can come and go very quickly, so look beyond a few months of excitement. Instead, buying furniture that truly appeals to you and will look good even years later.

Ignoring Who Will Really Be Using Your Furniture: Before you buy furniture, make sure that you know how it will be used, and who will be using it. If you forget to factor in small children, pets, and snacking while watching TV, you could be heading for disaster. Your fabulous cream colored sofa will be no match for grubby hands, or muddy paws. An absolutely gorgeous coffee table with a delicate finish will not last long when you have people putting up their feet on it, or running their toy cars across it.

Not Testing Your Furniture Before You Buy: When buying a sofa, recliner or chair, you should always test it, and judge for quality. What if that very stylish sofa turns out to be so uncomfortable that you never want to sit on it? Your furniture should always make life more comfortable and easier. Try out your sofa in the store the way you would use it at home, and yes, that means lying down on it too.

Asking For Too Many Opinions: When you consult too many people, you make it harder to narrow down your choices. Never take along an entourage when shopping for furniture. If you don’t want to go alone, go with your significant other, or just one other person whose judgment you trust.

Not Asking For Help: The salesperson are there to help you, and they might be able to offer advice and suggestions which ultimately help you make a better buying decision. While the ultimate buying decision will be yours ,but not by consulting them you might not even get a good idea of all the options you have available. Incidentally, it is a better idea to go shopping on a weekday so that you can get a salesperson’s full attention. Weekends tend to be busy and distracting when you need a salesperson’s full attention.

Paying Too Much For Your Furniture : When buying furniture, there are plenty of ways for you to save. For instance, you always have the choice of waiting for special sales. You can also inquire if the store will offer any type of a discount, especially if you are buying several pieces.
