    We live in a crazy world at a crazy time.  As a scary new virus threatens the health of our society, both physically and economically, most of us are stuck at home.  Some of us are confined by governmental orders while others are just proactive and trying to keep safe.  Social distancing is the new norm and most of us are complying.   At first it was nice to be home and not have to go to school or the office, but it is getting old fast.  What do we do to kill the time?

    A Letter to Our Customers

    To our loyal customers and followers:

     

    At Furniturewholesalers.com we have been on the cutting edge of technology since 1998.  Back then we launched our first online only sales platform with homeofficedirect.com.  At the time, selling furniture on the internet was a new concept and we consider ourselves fortunate to be at the forefront of the world wide web.  Over the years we have evolved as a business and as a company and we transitioned from homeofficedirect.com to furniturewholesalers.com...

    Slow and Unnoticed Change
    Slow and Unnoticed Change

    It is crazy how technology has changed the world.  It happens so slowly that we barely realize it, but just think about all the things that are gone from when we were children.  When was the last time you saw a payphone, a handheld camera or a disposable one, or even used a traditional parking meter?  All around us everyday items are disappearing and being replaced and we barely notice.  Below you will see a list of items that have evolved quickly that we do not even think about.

    Be Clean
    Be Clean

    Everywhere we look we hear people talking about it, we read how it effects the economy, and we live in fear of it.  It has a major impact on all aspects of our lives and most of us will never be affected by it.  The Coronavirus is scary to think about, it is a new disease that we do not have a cure for and can be deadly.  Most of us will never come close to anyone who is contagious but we really have no real way of knowing.  So how do we deal with this threat to our health without disturbing our...

    Almost Spring Again
    Almost Spring Again

    Did you know that it is almost baseball season?  Across the country everyone from little leaguers to MLB All-stars are gearing up for spring.  So what does this mean for everyone else?  First it means that winter is just about over and spring is on the horizon.  Sure, it might snow once or twice more but the days begin to feel warmer and longer.  We all get excited for the prospect of an early spring and summer, but we must remember to be ready for the change in climate.

    Compromise & Negotiation
    Compromise & Negotiation

    Our lives are full of compromises.  We make agreements with people at work, at home, and just about everywhere on a day to day basis.  Like with all things, some of us are better at making deals then others.  It is a difficult balance of knowing when to give in and when to stand firm to ensure we are happy and protect our interests.  So what is the best way to negotiate a deal?  The answer depends on the situation, because no two scenarios are alike.

    Design is Not Easy
    Design is Not Easy

    Design is not easy.  Stores and websites go to great length to convince us that if we buy their products we will be ahead of the trend.  In some cases this might be true but there is also a chance things can backfire.   It doesn’t matter how cute an outfit is on a store’s mannequin, if it doesn’t fit your body type it won’t work.   This rule can also be carried over to home and office design.  If our tables or desk is too big for the space it will not matter how fashion forward the look is.  Add...

    The Value of Sportsmanship
    The Value of Sportsmanship

    From a young age we are taught the importance and value of sportsmanship.  It doesn’t matter if we learn it from little league baseball, a football program, a softball program, or a hockey program.  We are taught that winning the right way is important.  We should respect our opponents and shake their hands.  If we win we should be mindful of our opponent’s feelings and if we lose we should congratulate the winners.  The value of sportsmanship helps us be better people and its lessons can be app...

    Winter is Clearly Here
    Winter is Clearly Here

    Winter is clearly here.  All across the country we are seeing temperatures drop and snow is starting to fall.  Although not all of us live in areas that will be affected by snow fall, we will all notice the impact of the weather.  Travel becomes more difficult due to flight delays and our daily commutes get delayed.  Additionally, it will take longer for items to be delivered and unfortunately some of these delays are difficult to predict.  Although the elements are beyond our control there are ...
