Live Life Comfortably

Live Life Comfortably – That’s what Brooke Shields says about all geMade-in-USAnuine La-Z-Boy products on her commercials.

Why does she say that?  All La-Z-Boy products are American made
with more options than just fabric, style, or color! Different leg colors, WO24_CHAIRS_WHITE_RED cording, nailhS139503ead trim, or contrasting pillows to name a few.

The newest options include a seat and legrest made with a 2″ Memory Foam layer.  It will reduce pressure and add softness on the legrest to adjust to your body.  The other new option on the Premier                                                                                                  Stationary Sofa Line is the addition of ComfortCore Gel Cushions.

The seat cushions have 7 layers of comfort including a pressure relief core, ultra high resilience core, memory foam and gel-infused memory foam.

Come in and we will be happy to help you “design” your new La-Z-Boy recliner or sofa today so you and your family can Live Life Comfortably.



With  2015 coming to an end. It’s time to think of a fresh look for your home.  Take off those heavy window coverings they suck up the natural light. Natural light can help create a new look with no money spent.

Give your bathroom a relaxing spa-vibe by just changing out  your towels. Take out you dark color ones and add  light color ones. Candles are a great choice too. You don’t have to light them. They will look great just sitting there.

Family rooms  need a fresh look after the long winter. Your furniture doesn’t have to be dark. Think of mid tones or lighter they will make you room come alive. Don’t forget a splash of color, light blues and greens are going to be big in 2016


If nothing else simplify your space. That will give you a lighter look in it self. Remember do this your way, it’s your home.

If you need any help come to Hope’s, we  will help. Nancy

Recliners 101 – Part #2

Remembering that all recliners ARE NOT the same – let’s talk about some of La-Z-Boys’ special features that you can order for your recliner.

Is the handle too short for you?  We can order the Elongated Comfort Selector.  It adds 2 inches in length to make it easier for you to relax!

If you do not want to pull a handle, try Power Recline.  It comes with a remote that allows for leg adjustment, back adjustment, or do them together.  The remote is on a cord so you CANNOT lose it, or if you prefer, choose the buttons on the side of the recliner.

Are you a LEFTY?  If so, you can have your recliner made with the handle on your FAVORITE side.

You can also add 1 1/2 inches to the seat height by purchasing a Tall Base for your recliner.  If you want to see what is going on all around you, maybe a Swivel Base would be perfect for you.

If you need any help understanding these options, please come and let us help you decide what will work the best for you and your busy life.

La-Z-Boy has you covered in quality, style, comfort and options to make your life more comfortable.

Simplify for Fall

With fall here. Yes it’s here because I’m mowing up leaves. Winter can not be far behind. Now is a great time to simplify your home. We all have design items that were wonderful at the time, but that time is gone. Time to change them out. Old flower arrangements , plates, bowels, vases, pillows or what ever. You know what I’m talking about.

Simplify that table top, take away all the small old items. Replace them with on great piece with strong lines. Like the one below.large_64342 Remember that less stuff makes for less stress. We all need less stress, I know I do.

Now maybe the time to get a few new things that show what the new tends are. You don’t have to spend a lot to get a new look. Check out the the items below the first one is only $39.95. The next item is only $59.95 and so on trend now.081623


Blending old and new pieces together adds your personal style to your home. An out for date items can have new life with some thing as simple as a $3.00 can of spray paint. If you were going to get rid of the piece anyway, try painting it first, you may love the new look.


Have fun Nancy


The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. Maybe it should say on the other side of the computer. Sometimes things are greener on your side of the computer. You just have to look.

Shopping online for furniture can be fun, BUT (with me there is always a but) let me tell you sitting on that computer doesn’t work to find out how soft that sofa is. It’s still is best to set on the sofa and feel that fabric and see the real color. We now have our prices online just like the big boys. Please check them you’ll be happy with what you find.

I know free delivery is a big thing online. I just want to let you know what WE at Hope’s can do for YOU.


We do charge $10.00 for deliveries in Aurora and $20.00 for Hamilton County. For that small amount you get your furniture placed  not only in your house, but in the room, of your choice, set up and looking great. Your delivery is made by the same men you see at the grocery store, the high school football game or around town. People you know and trust. That’s big now days.

Well that’s enough blogging today ( There is that word again) I wish you HAPPY SHOPPING !woman-shpping-1428371 See you soon. Nancy





WELL!  What do you think of the new website? Pretty Great Right. Every few weeks we are going  to take turns writing a Blog (Where do they come up with these names.) blog-428950_640

LET’S TALK COLORFor some of us color scares the HEEBEEGEES out of us. We don’t know what to do, so we do BEIGE.  Now think back to when you were young and you got a new box of crayons. You started with a box of 8, when went on to 24, 48, and ” 64″. You were in love with color! What happened to us.crayons-1530987

Now we are not 8 years old anymore, so what is the adult box of crayons? Well for me it’s the paint deck from the local paint store. I Love Them.

We all have a color or colors that we always go to be it blue, green , yellow, etc, remember that box of  crayons. The colors we loved a 8 years old  we still love today. Take your paint deck and go to those colors. Pick a card of colors that you like. Work with all the colors on that card. The top color will work good for a ceiling, walls maybe  one or two steps down for your walls. Now, look at  some other color cards that you like. Go down to the same point on each card those are the colors that  you will work with for every thing else. Now it’s time to come  in .  We’ll help you check out fabrics that will pull colors from your color card. SEE YOU SOON. Nancycolor-791622_640

Welcome to Hope Home Furnishings and Flooring’s new website!  In 2010, during our 50th Anniversary, hopehomefurnishing.com debuted.  We worked very hard making sure our inventory was pictured, up to date, and with as much information about size and color as we could fit.

But my how things have changed in 5 years!  Smart phones have gotten smarter.  Tablets aren’t books of lined paper that I used to do homework on (which, by the way, was a long long time ago).  And shoppers get the information about their desired purchase long before they set foot in a store.  We realized that we needed to make our site better for you, our customer, and make sure you were getting the information you wanted and needed, and find it easily.  So we set out to build a better shopping experience.

And here it is!  Welcome to the NEW hopehomefurnishings.com.  If you’ve visited before, you’ll see a BIG difference.  More and bigger pictures, product descriptions, pricing, sale prices and even a search feature.  The BLOG and LOOKBOOKS will allow us to share the latest trends, bring you more information and alert you to special offers and sales.  All of these things were important suggestions and comments from our customers.

Now keep in mind, not everything is done quite yet and there’s a lot of things to do  (and I mean a lot).  The important thing to remember is we will keep working and changing things up to make sure we are giving you the best shopping experience possible, before you even set foot in the store.

But we need your help! Not everyone shops or browses the same way.  So your input, comments, and suggestions are very important to us so that we can continue to make the site better and better.

SO HERE’S THE DEAL!!!  Please take some extra time to tour the site and then go to the Contact Us area of the site and tell us what you would like to see, change, move, remove or add.  We know your time is valuable, so as a token of our appreciation, anyone who sends us a suggestion or comments will receive a gift certificate valued at $25.00 to use at the store.

A good bed frame is critical

A solid steel metal bed frame provides a long-lasting firm foundation for the bed set. Be sure that the casters on corners and middle of the bed frame are large and heavyweight.

A good bed frame should last through several beds. Some are adjustable and others are made to fit a particular size of box spring.

This frame adds a center support that is required for queen size.
