How to Buy Quality Upholstery With Global Home

Isn't the internet great? You can find everything you want by just typing out a few key words. However, with all this information at your fingertips, how to distinguish the correct from the wrong? Ask the experts, like us. We won't steer you wrong when it comes to researching, finding and buying furniture.

Five Things to Look for When Shopping for Quality Upholstered Furniture

How can you determine quality when the stuff that divides the good from the bad is under cover? This checklist will assist you while researching high quality upholstery.

Global Home’s Made-To-Order collection easily meets and exceeds each of the five hallmarks of quality upholstered furniture cited below. Bench-made in the USA of superior materials. That’s the Global Home difference.

Hard Wood Construction


1. Hard Wood Framing

Make sure the frame of your piece is constructed of hard wood. Our made-to-order upholstered furniture is built around kiln-dried alder wood sourced from sustainably harvested forests. We even offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY on the internal structure of our furniture. Our frames will stand the test of time! 



superior Suspension


 2. Superior Suspension 

With contemporary or modern style upholstery, look for a heavy gauge, sinuous no-sag spring or webbing suspension system. These systems provide excellent and long-lasting seat comfort, yet maintain a modern silhouette. The springs are mounted to specially-fitted fittings and silencers that hold the frame in place and provide a supremely comfortable and quiet sit.


Superior Fill


3. Superior Fill

Fiber quality is important for padding the frame, comfort against the body, and longevity. Our made-to-order pieces are hand-stuffed (never machine blown) with only high resiliency foam, cotton padding and heavy fiber-fill. Anything less will collapse after extended use. Say no to sagging!





Bench Made Upholstery

4. Bench Made: 

It is important to know how the upholstery piece is made. Does one upholsterer make the piece or does a line of upholsterers each make a part of the piece? If it is a production line, one upholsterer makes the outside back, another makes the arms, another the inside back and the seat. If it is bench-made, one upholsterer makes the entire piece. Bench-Made pieces take longer, but are of much higher quality. The upholsterer is given time to perfect his piece and pay attention to every detail.  Pride of production shows in the attention to detail each artisan gives. This is the mark of true craftsmanship.

5. Domestic Construction

Domestic construction ensures that the product is made with integrity and stands the test of time. Simply put, US companies are held to higher standards and transparency in product content and production. Global Home’s fine Made-To-Order upholstered furniture have been made in California since 1989.  Proudly made in the USA with integrity, and superior quality.

Global Home is the only Manhattan retailer of this beautiful line of furniture.

Getting Exactly What You Want

We heard this alot with customers;
'Can I change the size...?' or 'Does it come in another color..."? We realized that our customer wanted to ability to create too. Since the customer is always right, at GHNY we put together the GLOBAL HOME Made to Order collection

So imagine building your very own sofa, sectional, chair, ottoman, bench, or bed is possible . . . exactly  the way you want it.Start by choosing your favorite from hundreds of frames. Customize the dimensions to the inch (if what you want). Choose from hundreds of fabrics and leathers, or you can even use your own. Then choose your firmness and fill.

There you have it. The upholstered piece you always wanted, exactly the way you want it. Highest quality, hand-crafted in the USA. Frames, suspension, and fill are guaranteed for life. All delivered at a price that compares to some of the made-elsewhere big box stores. Ask them about their quality and lifetime guarantee -- yeah, didn't think so.

"Who does that ?!?"  GLOBAL HOME . . . we do that.
