Leather Living Room Furniture

If you’re looking for living room furniture  that will last a lifetime, look no further than the comfort of leather. Leather is much more durable than fabric when it comes to sofas and living room sets.   Nothing combines style, comfort and unbeatable durability like leather furniture. It’s virtually child- proof, resists stains and looks great years down the line. Even those cumbersome grease stains stand no chance against this tough natural material. For those who want an eco-friendly option, The RoomPlace offers an environmentally safe leather vinyl option called Eco-Leather.

A word about care. Given its extensive lifespan, leather sofas and chairs may actually outlive their inside padding, so it’s a good idea to look for furniture with zippered cushions. This way you can keep the look that you love.   Since leather is vulnerable to heat and light, make sure to keep leather furniture away from direct light and keep nearby curtains and blinds closed during the day. For added protection, special conditioners preserve and soften leather furniture – this prolongs the life expectancy.

Whether you’re going for sophisticated chic or family-friendly, investing in resilient leather furniture will give back for years to come. Visit one of our 22 Chicago area locations to preview our stylish collection of leather furniture.

Leather & Storage Ottomans

Perhaps more than any other piece of furniture in your living room, the ottoman is a multitasker.  Be it upholstered in leather, microfiber, fabric, or un-upholstered, they add comfort, coziness, and functionality to a family living space.  Nothing says “someone enjoys spending time here” quite like an ottoman. Visit The RoomPlace today!

The Storage Ottoman
Uniquely, a good sized storage ottoman is a great fit in a large living room or a small studio.  The bigger it is, the more stuff you can hide from view.  The Sasha storage ottoman, available at the Roomplace, for example,  is a cavernous 42″ wide, 21″ high” and 27″ deep. Books, clothes, pots and pans, cards, remote controls, lap tops, tools–it’s almost endless, the list of what might fit into one of these.  And another good thing is that even a large ottoman can work well into almost any decor.

The Extra Seating Ottoman
Extra seating in a pinch is a hallmark of the ottoman.  Ever had five people casually show up to your home, all to congregate around your coffee table?  Ottoman to the rescue.  You can easily sit an extra two or three people around your coffee table with a good sized ottoman.  The fun thing is that when that happens, everyone will enjoy the close quarters much more than they may let on.  Test it out for yourself– the next time you see a few people sitting together on an ottoman, pay closer attention and see if all of them aren’t smiling!  I bet they will be.

The Coffee Table Ottoman
An ottoman for storage or extra seating is good but the multi-tasking ottoman has more tricks to offer.    Coffee table, you ask? You bet. The wide, flat, smooth surface of a good-sized ottoman makes it a terrific surface to gather around for a casual cup of coffee, tea, snack, or TV dinner.

The Perfect Ottoman for Tired Feet
And then, there is the “I can’t think of a better place to prop up these tired feet” ottoman.

– Elevating your legs after work or play
-Relaxing, reading, watching the game on Sunday
-A piece of furniture on which I can put my fee
-Ottoman, oh ottoman, thou art such a treat


Why Choose a Microfiber Sectional Sofa

With microfiber material increasing in popularity for furniture upholstery, many of our customers want to understand just what the fuss is all about concerning this durable fabric.
Microfiber is composed of extremely thin fibers of polyester that are about 100 times finer than human hair. The thinner the fiber used in the weaving of this fabric, the denser it becomes.  Because of this high density, most microfiber covered furniture is extremely durable and has the supple feel of suede leather. It is also lightweight in loft offering breath-ability unmatched in other fabrics and is highly recommended as a fabric for those who suffer from allergies.

Mustang 10 Pc. Sectional PackageThis manmade fabric is well known for its easy maintenance. It does not need a lot of chemicals to keep clean. Cleaning is as simple as using mild dish or laundry soap and water to blot up dirt and stains. For stronger cleaning needs, the fabric can be steam cleaned, and to remove lint, a simple sticky lint roller or vacuuming will do the trick.

Many furniture makers use cloth backing for suppleness that adds to wrinkle resistance and elegant draping in the design. The best armchairs and swivel chairs for living room seating are constructed using microfiber. Their lush softness just makes you want to sink into its cozy comfort to enjoy nights at home in front of the television or visiting with friends and family.

The RoomPlace offers living and family room seating such as the microfiber sectional sofa and reclining chairs in all of our 23 showroom locations in Illinois and Indiana. Visit us to experience the comfort of microfiber furniture for yourself.

Kids Bedroom Furniture

Every mother wants her child to have a playful, age-appropriate, and well-organized bedroom. But, children grow so quickly that it’s often difficult to decide which furnishings to choose. Here are a few tips from The Roomplace for choosing a child’s bedroom furniture, and decorating a child’s bedroom.

Bed, Dresser and Nightstand: When selecting major pieces for your child’s bedroom, it’s important to consider your child’s present and future needs. After all, bedroom furniture is a major purchase, and should be designed to last for years.

For example, selecting a well-constructed, full-size bedroom furniture set which will bring years of enjoyment is often a better long-term value than choosing a toddler bed or other cartoon character-themed items which your child will likely outgrow within a few years. In addition, classic furniture styles with neutral wood finishes will accommodate many decorating themes, and your child’s changing preferences over the years.

When selecting a child’s bed, don’t forget about the possibility of hosting sleepovers with friends! A trundle bed provides a comfortable place for a friend to settle in, and can be neatly tucked out-of-sight when not in use.

Accessories: After selecting major furnishings, you’ll want to add the finishing touches to your child’s bedroom by bringing in fun accessories that express their unique personality. Accessories can be easily changed as your child grows and changes, so they provide a great way to bring in their favorite characters, animals, and television shows. Don’t forget a small lamp for reading bedtime stories, and a nightlight to scare away any fear of the dark.

Storage: When choosing furniture and accessories for your child’s bedroom, look for items with shelves and built-in storage compartments. Bins and baskets added to a simple bookcase make great places for storing and organizing blocks, toys, dolls, and books.

The children’s bedroom furniture shown above is available at The Roomplace. Stop by any of our showrooms, or visit our website at


Care and Maintenance of Black Lacquer Bedroom Furniture

Monterey 7 Pc. King BedroomBlack lacquer bedroom furniture adds depth to bedroom furnishings. Its urban, upscale feel lends a hotel like atmosphere and is ideal for those seeking modern design elements in the bedroom. The care of black gloss bedroom furniture is a little different than cleaning standard wood furniture. Regular cleaning maintenance can leave streaks and dust behind. Certain substances can also scratch the delicate finish so special care is needed to protect the furniture and keep it bright and shiny in appearance.

Black bedroom furniture shows dirt and dust easily and will also readily reveal scratches. Although the finish appears exceptionally hard, it is still prone to chipping and denting. The best way to clean black lacquer is to use a soft, damp cloth that has been wrung of all moisture. Be sure to only use soft cotton or flannel never coarse fabrics or paper towels as they can cause scratching. Begin dusting the furniture in long straight sweeps rather than a circular motion which can leave wipe marks.
Once dusting is complete, go back over the furniture with a dry cloth. If there are still fingerprints or smudges, then it may be necessary to use a mild soap such as Murphy’s Oil Soap. Never use heavy furniture polish on black lacquer furniture as it will streak and weaken the black finish with prolonged use.
With proper care and maintenance, you will be able to enjoy the appearance of your black lacquer bedroom furniture for many years to come. Make sure to visit any of our 23 stores for the best complete rooms of black lacquer furniture as well as traditional and contemporary bedrooms in a variety of styles and finishes.
