Look what just arrived. This is a new dining set from Chintally – the Labrenda. What a beautiful combination of oak and brushed steel.

The table is 31.5″ wide and 51.25″ long. It features a self storing 15.75″ leaf. You can combine this with the nook bench or maybe put some different chairs with it to complete your look. Wouldn’t a leather upholstered Parson’s chair look great with this table?

August has been wonderful. And the children are getting ready to return to school.I hope you will be able to get out and enjoy what is left of the summer.

Our Most Popular Mattress in 2014

Last week I featured our most popular sofa, the Maddie made for us by Broyhill. This week I would like to feature our most popular mattress choice.
The single most popular mattress model at Smulekoff’s is the BeautyRest Port Huron Luxury Firm. This is the clear choice in both the queen and the king size categories.
The picture shows our display model on 3rd floor. The cut away corner gives a good view of the pocketed coils, the foam encased edge, the support foams and the air cool memory foams. The ones that we deliver do not have the cut away, of course.
Mattress design has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. We now understand how important it is to get a good night’s sleep. We need a mattress that is comfortable as well as supportive. We don’t want to be tossing and turning all night. That just interrupts our sleep and doesn’t let our bodies enter the deep sleep phase of the sleep cycle. This is the phase where our body does the healing.
We also now understand that a mattress needs to conform to the curves of our body to properly support us. When a bed is too hard or too soft our back muscles are tense, trying to keep our spine in what the sleep doctors term “the position of natural function”. This is why we wake up in the morning with a stiff back when we sleep on the wrong mattress.
The Port Huron Luxury Firm seems to be the best combination a comfortable surface over a supportive innerspring base. At least for our customers. If you are not sleeping well or you wake up in the morning feeling worse than when you went to bed, come check this out. It may be just what you need to sleep well at night.
The summer has been wonderful. Last year we were starting a flash drought that hit us for almost all of August. It doesn’t look like we will have that problem this year. So I hope you be able to get outside and enjoy.
