Know Your Furniture: Dresser, Armoire or Chest of Drawers…?

Know Your Furniture: Dresser, Armoire or Chest of Drawers…?

November 29, 2012

In this, the second installment of Madison Seating’s “Know Your Furniture” series, I would like to take a moment to discuss some of the complex intricacies of a certain widely used but little understood piece of bedroom furniture, the Dresser. Or is it the Armoire? Or… wait… hold on a second, maybe it’s a Chest of Drawers…?

This kind of confusion is exactly what the “Know Your Furniture” series is here to address.

So which is it? What is the difference between them? And which respective instance would be the appropriate use of each term?

Lets find out.

Know Your Furniture: The Chaise Longue

Know Your Furniture: The Chaise Longue

November 12, 2012

Good morning to you all,


This new series entitled “Know Your Furniture”,  is intended in part to remedy a particular injustice in the furniture world. We’ve all been there, standing around a kitchen or living room, cocktails in hand listening to a super-snobbish friend or neighbor describe in excruciating detail the profound nature and exquisite history of their newest furniture acquisition. The group around you listens politely, maybe they have some idea of what this self styled furniture guru is talking about but you wouldn’t be surprised if they were just as clueless as you and were simply employing the exact same strategy that has you looking fascinated, smiling and desperately trying to nod and sigh in the right places.

Vanity of Vanities

Vanity of Vanities

O’ vanity of Vanities,
thy name says it all,
You are my faithful servant maid,
my mirror on the wall.

You are my dearest friend,
my most impartial jury,
The source of my deepest joys,
and mornings full of fury.

The first to greet me when I rise,
my last “goodnight” before I sleep,
And the rigid truth within you lies,
no matter how I beg and weep.

You are always there to dress me well,
to prep me up and down,
As I consult with you before a date
or a night out on the town.

You know me as no other can,
you have seen me as I am,
you have seen the natural beauty,
that lies behind the glitz and glam.

I am thankful that you caught my eye,
on the day of our first meeting,
Thank you premier furniture site,
yes thank you Madison Seating.

Good morning all,

With the presidential election now less than a day away, it seems that all things in life come with a presidential twist. I’m sure that many, if not most conversations these days are dominated by or at least include some reference to the upcoming election and of course it is impossible to watch five minutes of television with out coming across a some form of politically sponsored content.

In keeping with this recent spirit of presidentialism, I thought it might be interesting to take a look back at one of our founding fathers, the quintessential president if you will, George Washington. And to take this look, through the lens of our passion here at Madison Seating, furniture.

Good morning y’all,

Today, I would like to take a moment to recognize one of the most talented and capable pieces of contemporary furniture that I believe often goes unnoticed. This unheralded hero of the living room may not always be the center of attention at parties or get the same amount of press that some of the other pieces do, but that does not keep it from selflessly serving in it’s varied and versatile ways.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Sofa Bed.

Happy Halloween from Madison Seating!

Trick or Treat!

I believe that Halloween is many things to many people. As a kid growing up, Halloween was obviously all about the costumes and candy. As I got older, my diminishing interest in the “Treat” factor greatly increased my tendency to “Trick”,  candy bar received or not. And Just when you hit that age when you have lost most of your interest in both “Tricking” and “Treating”, that is when it seems the cyclical nature of life’s little ironies comes full circle, and the haunter becomes the haunted, and now you are the one who cringes every time the doorbell rings…

The Discovery Coffee Table by Zuo Modern

The Discovery Coffee Table by Zuo Modern

October 25, 2012

Contemporary and unique. To me, these are the two words that best sum-up the Zuo Modern Discovery Coffee Table. And when it comes to coffee tables, I cant think of any two characteristics more desirable than these two.

Very often coffee tables go unnoticed and generally taken for-granted. Much of the time they have a very basic design and are pretty unremarkable. But with the Discovery Coffee table, Zuo Modern has taken the ordinary, reworked it, and given us a coffee table that makes a statement, “I will not be overlooked!”.
