The Next Big Thing In Bedroom Furniture: Upholstered Beds

For some, the intricacy and nostalgia of more traditional furniture styles is exactly what’s needed to provide an air of mystery and luxurious comfort to a room—and what better place to have luxurious comfort than in the bedroom? If the romanticism and beauty of traditional styles are what you’re looking for, then there’s a new trend in the furniture world that you may want to be aware of, if you’re not already.

You’re probably used to seeing headboards and bedframes made with polished woods and sleek metals, but have you ever seen an upholstered one? These definitely had their heyday with midcentury furniture designs, but the look is back, and at The RoomPlace we love that it provides furniture shoppers with a few different styles to choose from.

We like the simple and elegant look of the Tristan beige Queen bed, which brings together velvet-feel material, nail-head trim, and a curved head- and footboard for a beautiful and durable bed. But if you want something a little more mod, the sleeker design of the Misty chocolate Queen bed may be more in line with what you’re looking for. For the added elegance of a European flair, the Regency Queen bedroom set incorporates primavera wood with walnut inlays, premium leather, cotton tufting, nail head trim and a charming sleigh bed design. But it’s not just the bed that oozes royalty—every other piece in the set makes use of intricate details and rich woods to create a bedchamber fit for a queen.

So what do you think of this trend? If you’re looking for a new bed that incorporates something old with something new in a stylish new way, come check out the bedroom furniture at our Chicagoland furniture stores. We’re sure you’ll find something to fall in love with.

The new Matrix Collection at The RoomPlace

At The RoomPlace, we’re happy to introduce an exciting new collection of high-tech furniture. That’s right, we said high-tech—and you will too once you get to know the Matrix Collection!

The Matrix Collection features power recliners, loveseats, and sofas, and you can even get a whole living room collection. Soft, comfortable Nu-Leather comes in black or a deep, rich red, both of which would be cozy and inviting in any living room, den or home theater. The coffee power recliner comes with two cup holders, which make enjoying a hot or cold beverage in your armchair very convenient.

The Matrix sofa is where you really get added functionality. The middle seat can drop down to reveal a table that incorporates two cup holders, an overhead light, two USB ports and two A/C adapters you can use to stay plugged in to whichever devices your heart desires. The growing trend of incorporating innovative technology with comfortable furniture is one we’re loving here at our Illinois and Indiana Chicago furniture stores, and we think area furniture shoppers will as well. Armrest consoles, touch-button controls, and more make this collection not only a technophile’s dream, but also a great value.

Interested in exploring this new collection? Take a peek at our Matrix Collection video, then head over to our gallery of Matrix Furniture, where you can see photos and details on every piece in the collection. For living room furniture with a futuristic twist, it doesn’t get better than this! Stop into one of our many Indiana and Illinois furniture stores to learn more and see this collection in person.

Every little girl dreams of being a Princess

Isn't it true that fairy tales help drive the imagination? Why not set the story and theme with our Jessica twin or full bedroom set.

If the Jessica bed isn't her cup of tea party… Then perhaps something more like our Hailey bedroom will work. The bed showcases beautiful metal scrollwork in a silver hue, accented by clear crystal-like finials on the bedposts. The dresser and nightstands have beveled edges with scalloped details.

The Lake County Haven and The RoomPlace

The Lake County Haven came to The RoomPlace hoping to get a great price for a couple of new mattresses. The Vernon Hills General Manager Faisal Chaudhri stepped in to help, he knew The RoomPlace could do more… Many people know how The RoomPlace has given back to the community over the past 100 years. But few know how excited the store staff gets when they can help out their neighbors directly. The RoomPlace ended up donating 10 new mattresses and boxsprings to The Lake County Haven. Members of the store staff including the General Manager even helped deliver the mattresses.

"The beds will be used at the shelter and housing program for homeless women and children. Our old beds have been in use for many, many years. The box springs were cracking and the mattresses were awful! We are so happy that now our residents can get a much better night's sleep," offered Laura Sabino Executive Director of Lake Haven. The residents are very busy each day job hunting and getting their lives together. The new mattresses will offer The Haven residents a much needed night's sleep. "We are all so grateful to The RoomPlace for making this generous donation! We consider The RoomPlace to be a friend and partner with us in our fight against homelessness," continued Laura.

The Haven was started in 1992 when two Lake County neighbors came together to try to help homeless women and children. They could imagine what it would be like to be hungry and homeless, and they felt that was unacceptable. So these two ordinary people, Peg Bradley and Mike Gretz, got together and did something absolutely extraordinary. They decided to start a program to help homeless women and children. The result was the Haven. They said YES to the challenge of not only providing homeless women and children with a home, food, and the necessities of life, but also to providing a wide range of services to help people get back on their feet again. And because of their vision and dedication, hundreds of women and families have emerged from the bleak reality of homelessness to lead independent lives. To learn more about The Haven go to

There is never a question of the commitment and community envolvment The RoomPlace has. Just look back to their 100 Acts of Kindness program and you will see how excited and enthusiastic the company and each employee is at giving back and getting involved.
