    Living Room Furniture Placement Tips

    Last updated 1 year ago

    When arranging living room furniture, you want to find a configuration that flows, increases function, and focuses on certain elements. Before you start rearranging pieces, think about how traffic moves through the room and try to design it accordingly.

    Think about how you use the room. If you prefer to socialize in the space, set up seating groups for conversation. Work with fixed focal points like fireplaces and bay windows to set up a great décor. For more decorating tips, watch this video.

    Quick Design Tips: Dining Rooms

    Last updated 1 year ago

    A formal dining room lends class and luxury to your home and provides a valuable place to entertain. Highlight the beauty of your floor or walls by choosing furniture that fills the space without taking away from the room’s natural elements. For a unique dining experience, consider a sofa or plush chairs to promote comfort during your dining experience. Add layers of color and texture to the room by using drapes on windows or even as a unique cover for cabinets or shelves. Choose furniture with a sleek, hardwood look to bring classic style to any dining area, or try an eclectic assortment of table and chair styles if you want to create a more whimsical feel.

    You can find the furniture you need to create your perfect dining room when you visit any of the Home Consignment Center’s Bay Area locations. We sell new and like-new furniture and home accessories to suit any taste at low prices without any fake markups or sales. Check out our selection by calling (925) 272-4318 for our nearest location, and visit us on the web for more home style tips.

    4 Things to Look for When Shopping for a Designer Sofa

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Buying a new piece of furniture can transform and update the look of a room. Regardless of the style you are considering, a designer sofa must be functional and meet your specific needs. Make a list of your personal preferences and keep them in mind while shopping to ensure that you find exactly what you want in your new sofa.


    Sit and lie on each sofa to compare comfort levels and find one that you like. Consider the cushions that come with your sofa, which are its real source of comfort, and find cushions with the texture and resiliency you want. Cushions may be made from foam, goose down, or a combination of these materials.


    You want your new furniture to last so you can enjoy it for years. Choose a sofa with a sturdy frame made from hardwood such as oak, maple, or poplar. Avoid softer woods that show damage easily.  Ask about the coils—interconnected coils and wire springs are two options that provide long-lasting support.


    If your furniture sees a lot of use, consider leather upholstery rather than fabric. Leather ages well, and signs of wear are considered desirable. All fabric will eventually show wear regardless of how well you care for it, but patterned fabric is less likely to show obvious wear than a solid color.

    Armrest Options

    Sofas offer a variety of armrest style options. You can choose from three major arm styles: square arms, rolled arms, and English traditional arms. If your home décor is modern and features clean, straight edges, you may want to consider an armless sofa.

    Find the perfect designer sofa for your home when you shop at Home Consignment Center. We have a wide variety of new sofas and other furniture direct from the manufacturer, so call (925) 272-4318 to find the nearest Bay Area location today.
