Majority of Furniture Not Subject To Tariffs

Not All Furniture is Made in China

Some media outlets have been telling people not to buy furniture because of the impending tariffs on China.  But, the truth is, there’s no reason to let the tariffs scare you off from buying furniture now. Let’s shed some light on a subject that many people are confused about and maybe not sure what to believe.

The truth is NOT all furniture is made in China. Not all furniture is subject to tariffs.

Come to Al's Furniture for Quality Bedroom Furniture

Clint Engel, Senior Retail Editor, Furniture Today recently wrote in his blog article regarding the furniture industry and the tariffs that Chinese furniture and mattresses accounted for a little less than 33% of all residential furniture and mattresses sold in this country last year. The rest, some 67% comes from other non-tariffed countries or was produced domestically. Which means, that the majority of furniture is not subject to tariffs.

So there’s no reason to let the impending tariffs keep you from buying new furniture. Al’s Furniture has a great selection of American made furniture that is not subject to tariffs. In fact, the majority of Al’s Furniture merchandise will not be affected by the tariffs. So don’t be afraid to come out and check out all the great quality furniture we have to offer.

Newest Options For Your New Sofa and Recliner

power options for your new sofa set

Imagine, relaxing on your day off in your new sofa watching your favorite show. What could make this better? Two of the newest power options – adjustable headrests and a USB charging station would make this better. Now with the press of a button you can smoothly recline and adjust your headrest to find that perfect comfortable position. No longer do you have to use a pillow to hold your head up or not be able to see the TV because you want to recline but your head is at the wrong angle to see comfortably. With the adjustable headrest you can adjust your head position independently of the footrest. Allowing you to find that perfect level of comfort you deserve.

Want to relax on the sofa, but your tablet or phone needs to be charged? No problem, just plug in to the USB charging station and play your favorite apps. With a charging station on each of the power buttons, you no longer have to find the nearest outlet to charge. Use the latest technology from the convenience of your new sofa, loveseat, or recliner. Each of the upholstery companies we carry here at Al’s (Flexsteel, Best Home Furnishings, and Southern Motion) offer these great new power options for your new sofa set and recliner.

Take that short drive Waay out McHenry Avenue to Al’s Furniture in Modesto, and see the newest power options available and feel the comfort for yourself.

Are you getting the right kind of sleep?

Serta iComfort Sleep Systems

If you’re like most people a mattress is just a mattress. A place to sleep and why invest money into something you’re not even awake to enjoy it, right! I know what you’re thinking; the really good mattresses are really expensive.  Depending on how you are thinking about it, you’re right. Some mattresses can get expensive. However let’s rethink why a solid investment can improve your health. Doctors have said for years how a good night sleep is required for optimal health and function. I know most of us already think I get 8 hours on my mattress already. Do you really? Is it solid sleep? Do you toss and turn? Wake up sore? Have medical conditions that make it hard to get comfortable? Here at Al’s Furniture we carry Serta, America’s most trusted mattress company! With a knowledgeable staff to help you get a custom comfort sleep; to really get that solid 8 hours doctors say is required for optimal health. Come in or call for a friendly and trusted review on how to improve your sleep.
