Toms Jr, grandson of the company's founder, making Hooker a third-generation company and one of the few furniture firms still led by a member of the founding family. Clyde Hooker Jr. was a true visionary who led the company with passion and humility that still inspires and motivates employees to this day.

Their custom upholstery by Sam Moore Furniture is manufactured in Bedford, Va. Much of their upscale leather upholstery line is manufactured in Hickory, N.C. by Bradington-Young. Hooker also imports an extensive line of wood bedroom, living room accents, dining room, home office, and home entertainment furniture, and some leather furniture from factories around the world. The design and engineering of these imported furnishings are all carefully overseen by Hooker or Bradington-Young in compliance with their high-quality standards.

Tips for Enjoying Summer at Home

Summer is officially here! That means lots of pool days, backyard BBQ’s, and fun nights outdoors. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we all may be spending more time at home this summer than we are used to, but that doesn’t mean it has to be any less fun-filled and exciting! We have lots of great tips and ideas for enjoying your summer at home.



  1. Family game night (or day!) In the hustle and bustle world that we live in, the art of family game night has somewhat been lost, but if this new pace in life has taught us anything, it is that spending more time with family and friends really is a blast! And what better way to make the most of family time than with a little friendly competition? Host a game night full of board games, BINGO, card games, and more! Set up different stations for the adults and kids or play a favorite for all ages. 

  2. Bring on the water! If there is one thing that is certain during the summer, it's the heat! No need to stay inside during the hot summer days though. If you don’t have a pool to cool off in, there are so many other great ways to incorporate a water day. Buy an inexpensive blow-up pool to splash around or lounge in. Create a DIY water slide like this one from All Things Thrifty or set up a sprinkler for the kids (and adults) to run through. 

  3. Get crafty. Summer is a great time to try out new crafts. The kids have more free time and crafts are a great way to let them get creative while learning a new skill. Happiness is Homemade has several great crafts including a milk carton birdhouse, DIY sidewalk chalk, and much more! If your kids are older or you want an adult craft, you can take on planting projects or make fun hanging lights from materials you have laying around. 

  4. Plan a staycation! Even if your beach plans were muddled this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a great staycation. Enjoying local parks and trails is a great way to explore your own town and see new places that you might not have known about before. Get takeout from local restaurants and enjoy a relaxing evening at home al fresco or indoors if an afternoon shower pops up. Turn your backyard into an oasis complete with lounge chairs, a fun cocktail, and relaxing beach music to recreate the feel of an all-inclusive at a fraction of the cost! 

  5. Spruce up your space. Summer is a great time to work on your home with the extra daylight and gorgeous weather. Whether you want to create an inviting outdoor space, update your bedroom furniture, or replace that mattress that is putting a serious damper on your sleep-in Saturday plans, now is the perfect time to make it happen! 


At Furniture of Dalton, we have everything you need to make staying at home this summer more enjoyable! Take some of our tips for enjoying summer at home and visit our showroom, where we can make all of your staycation dreams come true. Take advantage of our Summer Staycation Financing Event with 0% interest for up to 48 months* going on now through July 31. Click here for financing information. We feel sure that with a little creativity, you can make this the best summer yet!

Custom Upholestry: Made Just for You


Spring is just around the corner, and we’re already envisioning longer daylight hours and more relaxed evenings outside. Now that all of the holiday decorations are packed away and spring cleaning lists are dancing in our heads instead of sugar plums, it’s the ideal time of year to turn your attention to sprucing up your home for spring. Many of us take a second look at our living rooms and bedrooms this time of year and sigh. We know they need a refresh, but it can be overwhelming knowing where to start—and exactly what you want for the space.

Furniture of Dalton, Georgia’s largest furniture and flooring store, has the perfect solution for your spring interior design needs with our expansive selection of custom upholstery fabrics and manufacturers. Many of us don’t realize the flexibility, benefits, and gorgeous outcome of custom upholstery. In our world of mass production and sameness, leading furniture brands like Norwalk, Smith Brothers, Mayo, and King Hickory offer so many beautiful custom options from sofas, loveseats, chairs, headboards, and more. You select your own fabric combinations and finishes to create a truly custom dream room within your budget.

There is a real luxury to doing custom upholstery. It gives me the ability to create anything my client wants,” said Mia Newman from the Furniture of Dalton sales team. “I can showcase their individual personality and that is how a house is transformed into a home. The possibilities are endless.” 

To make shopping custom upholstery easier, Furniture of Dalton has divided our large store into clearly marked brand sections with inspiration walls filled with stylish fabric choices. Selecting upholstery fabrics is an exciting experience with options ranging from more formal choices to performance fabrics for busy households with kids and pets. You can browse on your own or discuss your options with one of our skilled sales consultants—or even call on our in-house interior designer. We’ll walk you through the process from selecting the furniture, seating configuration, fabrics, nail heads, wood finishes, and more.

The final outcome? Your custom upholstery furniture will be all your own, with fabric and finish combinations that best suit your unique design style, family needs, and budget. We love seeing what our customers create and encourage you to share photos with us so that we can share on our social channels.

Reframed: Finding the right bed for your room

Are you a die hard romantic, swathing your bedroom in flowing fabrics? Or do you prefer simple, clean lines in a contemporary setting? Whatever your bedroom style, there’s a bed to suit. Here, we delve into four bedroom approaches, with bed pairings to match.

Table Of Contents

  • Rustic

  • Romantic

  • Classic

  • Contemporary


Rustic

Rustic bed frame

Rustic rooms are warm, welcoming, and earthy, perfect for renewing rest. For a fitting bed frame, look for substantial pieces that hold their own, designed to ground a sleeping space. Seek a Sleigh Bed, a style with outward curving head and foot boards. Most often made of dense wood, this style is properly weighted, while elegant curves keep the frame from feeling heavy. For a rustic room, forgo the sleek, high shine, and seek a frame with a weathered or rubbed wood finish.

 

The Calistoga Sleigh Bed by Magnussen® fits the bill. Inspired by the ambiance of Napa Valley inns, the distressed charcoal finish is a modern take on rustic charm. For a lighter finish, check out the Whiskey Barrel Sleigh Bed  by Vaughan-Bassett. Perk: this style has an optional platform storage, for stashing your secrets and socks. 

-back to top


Romantic

Romantic bed frame

Romantic rooms are elaborate, sumptuous, and inviting, offering a plush place to recharge. Seek a detailed, decorative bed frame to heighten the sense of drama. For old world glamour, choose an upholstered headboard. This luxe approach is the cousin to lush carpeting, and encourages nights of rejuvenating rest. Sink into the supple support, and let your day melt away.

Check out the aptly named Sanctuary Upholstered Bed by Hooker®. With a high, deeply tufted headboard, this is romance in high gear. For a lower profile, try Century®’s Atlanta Low Post Bed. This refined take is offset by intricate basket weave carving along the base.

-back to top


Classic

Classic bed frame

Classic rooms are elegant, established, and always in style. Choose a traditional bed to do justice to an heirloom-worthy space. Four Poster Bed frames are perfect options, with varying post heights. Don’t want a soaring canopy? Opt for Shaker style simplicity, with wooden slats at head and foot.

The Ellen DeGeneres Marmont Poster Bed by Thomasville® is the perfect pairing of timeless tradition, today. The streamlined style is a modern take on a classic frame. Better yet, this frame gives you all the options : select high posts for a canopy, or removable fabric wraps for a soft touch.

-back to top

 

Interested in conversation sets for the patio? Check out this article.


Contemporary

Contemporary bed frame

Contemporary bedrooms are simple, sleek, and streamlined. Keep your bed style minimal to maintain clean lines and open space. Platform beds are popular options, with pared back headboards and low profiles. Forget the fuss of a box spring- platform beds are low slung, making ceilings seem higher and rooms feel larger than life.

The Kendall Bed by Century® is low profile, high style. The Camino Grey finish over oak is on trend- the warm gray palette creating a cozy, contemporary space. Leave the complications to your day job, and sink into simplicity.

 

These four takes are just a glimpse into the options for sweet styles and sweeter dreams, a simple step towards realizing your ideal sleeping space.

 

Where will you rest your head tonight?

How To Choose New Furniture For Your Bedroom

How To Choose New Furniture For Your Bedroom


Posted on: September 24, 2019

Share this:    

It's happened.

You turned the lights on in your bedroom to get ready for bed, and you don't like what you see anymore.

You're not sure how many times you've slept in that bed, or put clothes away in that dresser, but you're sure you don't want to do it anymore.

The bedroom furniture that used to excite you now does nothing but bore you.

Or even worse, it's broken and its functionality is low.

The dresser is missing a few knobs, the bed frame squeaks when you move just a little bit, and that headboard looks like it was involved in a car accident.

Whatever the reason may be, you've decided that it's time to update your bedroom furniture.

But where do you start?

A seemingly quick and easy task like picking out new furniture can quickly turn into a stressful and overwhelming ordeal.

With thousands of different options and furniture combinations available, it might feel like you'll never be able to settle on just one.

In the article below, we will talk about a few questions you should ask yourself before heading to the store that will make your decisions much easier.

Table Of Contents

  • Determine Your Budget

  • Consider The Quality

  • Consider The Size Of The Room

  • What Do You Need?

  • What's Your Style?

  • To Match or Not to Match?

  • Will The Room Be Shared?

  • Time To Buy

Determine Your Budget

Take your time to browse around for furniture wherever you choose.

It's fun to browse, and it's the best way to see what's available.

However, don't make a purchase, and don't visit any stores with the intent to purchase, before you know what you can afford or what you're willing to pay.

Furniture is typically a significant expense, so know what you can handle before you pull out your credit card.

If you have a large budget, feel free to shop wherever you want.

However, if your dreams are bigger than your budget, you still have some options to get the style you're looking for:

  • Upgrade one piece at a time. Only buy a piece of furniture when you can afford it.

  • Shop second hand. There are plenty of consignment and thrift stores that will have quality furniture. Your timing just has to be right.

  • If you're buying for a child's room, there's no reason to break the bank. Look for lower priced furniture here.

-back to top

 

Consider the Quality

No matter what your budget is, you don't want furniture that is going to fall apart and have to be replaced in a few months.

You don't have to buy the most expensive piece of furniture you can find, but you should be mindful of the quality of the furniture you are considering.

Your budget will play a significant role in choosing new furniture, but so does the intended use.

If you're buying for a child's room, you can get away with sacrificing a bit of quality.

However, you might want to invest a little more into the furniture for your master bedroom so you can get some quality years out of it.

It's also worth spending a little more on a quality mattress and then saving some money on your headboard or the bench for the foot of your bed.

-back to top

Bedroom furniture 

Consider The Size Of The Room

If your bedroom is small, you probably don't want to buy a massive four poster bed or oversized dresser.

On the other hand, if you have a large bedroom, don't buy furniture that is to small for space.

Scale is very important for a well-decorated room, meaning the size of your furniture needs to be aligned with the size of your room.

So before you buy that 12 drawer dresser, make sure it'll fit into your room.

Not only does it need to fit in your room, but it has to make it around all the corners and hallways to get to the bedroom.

-back to top

What Do You Need?

Maybe you're replacing all of your furniture, starting from scratch after a move to a new house, or upgrading a thing or two here and there.

Either way, know exactly what you need before you go to the furniture.

If you go in without knowing what you're really there for, you can end up buying things you don't need, and not getting what you do.

If you prefer putting your makeup on in the bathroom, skip the vanity.

If you share the bedroom with a partner, make sure you each get a nightstand.

If you're a basketball player measuring in at 6'10" you probably want to pass on the footboard.

And that cute dresser might not hold all of your clothes, so skip it and get one that can.

Also, keep your lifestyle in mind.

If you're a parent to 4 kids who love to pile in your bed every Saturday and Sunday morning, you probably want to opt for a large bed.

-back to top

What's Your Style?

If you like modern decorations, don't buy modern furniture.

If you have a particular decorating style, make sure your furniture compliments it.

In the long run, you won't be happy with furniture that doesn't reflect your unique style.

Keep an open mind and don't lock yourself into anything, but be mindful of what you like and what makes you feel good.

-back to top

To Match Or Not To Match?

It's often easier to buy a complete matched set of bedroom furniture.

It makes your decision-making process a lot easier and keeps you from wondering if your nightstand is really going to look good with your headboard.

However, you don't have to buy a matched set if you don't want to.

If you have a more casual style of decorating, sometimes furniture that matches can stifle it and be pretty boring.

If that's the case, choose a variety of pieces that complement each other and the overall style of the room.

-back to top

Will The Room Be Shared?

If the room will be shared, whether by a married couple or siblings, take both people into account when choosing your furniture.

If it's for siblings, you'll need two beds or a bunk bed.

For a shared room, each occupant will need dresser space, and their own nightstand or bedside table.

You also need to consider the styles of each person.

This can make things difficult when two siblings have conflicting styles.

It's even more difficult when the married couple has conflicting styles.

It might be necessary to compromise, but each person should be happy with their bedroom. 

-back to top

Time To Buy

You've waited long enough.

It's time to update your bedroom furniture and be happy with the bedroom you sleep in every night.

The task of upgrading your furniture is not an easy one, but if you follow the advice above, your decision-making process should be much smoother.

10 Things Every Man Needs In His Bedroom

10 Things Every Man Needs In His Bedroom

Posted on: October 24, 2019

Share this:    

The bedroom is likely the most important room in your house or apartment.

It has some stiff competition in the kitchen where you prepare your food, and the living room where you take in most of your entertainment and relaxation.

But how often do you cook, and how many weekends do you stay crammed up in your living room?

Even if it isn't the most important room to you, it's definitely the room where you spend the most time. It's where you get your much needed sleep at the end of a long day.

So, you owe it to yourself to create a serene space that allows you to relax at the end of the day.

To create that serene space, there are a few things that every guy should include in his bedroom.

Nothing extravagant or luxurious, just the basic necessities every bedroom should have to function as a place to rest and relax.

In the article below, we will talk about the ten things every guy should have in his bedroom.

Table Of Contents

  • Good Sheets

  • A Quality Mattress

  • A Bed Frame

  • A Soundsystem

  • Good Furniture

  • Artwork

  • Candles

  • Laundry Basket

  • An Alarm Clock

  • A Table Lamp

  • Make Sure You Have The Essentials

 

1. Good Sheets

The first thing you notice, along with everyone else that will ever walk into your bedroom, are your sheets.

Never underestimate the power of soft, matching bed sheets.

You don't want to be greeted by an unsightly mix of mismatched sheets when you walk into your room, and you definitely don't want to try to sleep in them if they are stiff and uncomfortable.

Just don't forget to wash them every now and then, and it's not a bad idea to have a spare set on hand.

-back to top

Mattress

2. A Quality Mattress 

You sleep on it almost every single day, so don't try to cut corners here.

The good ones are expensive, but you will likely want to spend the extra money to get a good mattress.

You'll get better sleep, and when you are well-rested, almost every other aspect of your life will improve.

You'll wake up rejuvenated ready to conquer the world, instead of feeling like you didn't sleep at all.

As you get older, your back will thank you as well.

-back to top

3. A Bed Frame

You want your bedroom to feel like an actual bedroom, and not a dorm room, so a good bed frame is a must.

You're an adult now, so there is no need to sleep on the floor every night.

A nice, heightened bed frame is a telltale sign that you have finally entered adulthood.

You'll be surprised how many people will notice and comment on your bed frame.

-back to top

Portable Speakers

4. A Sound System

We're not talking about the sound system you had in your car when you were a teenager that rattled your trunk and let people miles away know you were on your way.

Nothing too complex or fancy, just something you can play music on that's not your phone or laptop.

A simple wireless bluetooth speaker will do the trick.

-back to top

5. Good Furniture

Just like your mattress, quality furniture will also be a little pricey.

But, if you can afford to splurge on a good nightstand and dresser, by all means, do it.

If not, check around at the second hand and consignment stores. They will be a fraction of their normal cost, and you can usually find some that show very little wear and tear.

You want something sturdy and durable, not something that looks like it might break if you put a glass of water on top of it.

-back to top

6. Artwork

The walls of your bedroom should never be empty.

It's bland, boring, and a little weird.

But, you don't want to take your old college posters and pin them up in our new bedroom.

Everything should be in a frame.

Invest in some simple pieces that you enjoy and frame some of your favorite photos.

-back to top

Candles for Bedroom

7. Candles

Candles take care of two of your senses; sight and smell.

Lighting and the smell of your room are often overlooked until it's impossible to overlook them.

No matter what kind of lighting you already have in your room, a candle can still set a peaceful and intimate ambiance that will lure you into a good night's sleep.

They can also mask the smell of that dirty clothes hamper in the corner.

-back to top

8. Laundry Basket

Speaking of that clothes hamper, make sure you actually have one.

You're not a teenager anymore, so having a pile of dirty clothes in the middle of your bedroom isn't acceptable anymore.

A clothes hamper that shuts and hides everything away is ideal. But, if nothing else, a mesh basket in your closet will work as well.

Just make sure your dirty clothes are out of sight.

-back to top

9. An Alarm Clock

Do you cringe every time your co-workers phone rings?

It's probably because their ringtone is the same sound as your alarm.

Getting an actual alarm clock will rid you of that problem, and will make you look more responsible.

-back to top

10. A Table Lamp

Unless your light is hooked up to a clapper, you're going to need a table lamp.

If you don't spend a few dollars on a table lamp, your shins will likely pay for it every time you walk around your room in the dark.

Table lamps are relatively cheap, and it's worth the investment to keep yourself from getting injured.

-back to top

Make Sure You Have The Essentials

Don't decorate your bedroom for anyone but you.

Turn your bedroom into a sanctuary that invites you in and welcomes you with open arms.

You want a place in your home where you can rest, relax, and feel rejuvenated the next day.

It doesn't take anything extravagant, just the items we listed above.

So make a list, hop on Amazon or head to a furniture store like Furniture of Dalton, and get to work on your bedroom.

Use These Ideas To Bring New Life To Your Teenagers Room

Posted on: November 7, 2019

Share this:    

Teenagers are...unique.

You remember your teen years.

You're just starting to figure things out in life, you have mounds of homework to worry about, and you have to find a date to the big dance.

The teen years are challenging, and in turn, sometimes teens can be challenging.

One thing every teenager needs is a good bedroom.

A place they can call their own, a sanctuary they can spend time in when life starts to get crazy.

Decorating a room with a teenager can cause a little bit of tension.

You want to give them the freedom to make their room their own, but you'd also like it to fit in with the rest of the house at least a little bit.

You want to give them freedom, within certain limits, without any slammed doors or shed tears.

Whether your teenager wants a cheerful and vibrant room, or a more somber, laid back look, there are plenty of options and possibilities you can pursue.

That's why we've put together a few ideas below that are age-appropriate, stylish, and will satisfy everyone in the family.

Whether your space is big or small, you're looking to repurpose things from their younger years or buy everything new, these tips and ideas will guide you no matter what your needs are.

Stick To The Basics

Believe it or not, but some teenagers prefer simplicity.

They don't all want trendy posters or bright colors dominating their space.

For some teens, simple and easy does the trick.

Opt for laid-back linens and decorations and get creative with the storage space.

If your child thrives in calming, well-organized spaces, the right amount of storage will keep things clutter-free and aesthetically clean, allowing them to succeed.

A triple-tiered side table, built-in wall units, or floating shelves and hooks are all great ways to keep everything neat and clean.

Ideas for a Teenagers Bedroom

Classic Pieces With A Youthful Touch

If you invest in classic, timeless pieces, you can repurpose them over and over again, each time bringing new life and personality to your room.

Even a classic bed frame can be used in a teen's bedroom, and with a little bit of creativity, tasteful accent pieces, and age-appropriate bedding, it will feel brand new.

Then, as they age and want a more mature space, you can style the bed frame all over again, making it feel brand new.

Good lighting and tasteful decorations can also enhance the style of the bed.

-back to top

 

Maximize Space With A Bunk Bed

The majority of teenagers will likely prefer to have their own space, but sometimes sharing a room is necessary.

If you have teenagers close in age that prefer to share a room, or if you don't have a room to spare, bunk beds are a great space-saving option.

If you have the means to do it, building bunk beds into a wall will open up space in the bedroom even more.

Even if you don't have two teens sharing a room, bunk beds are also a space-saving option if your teenager doesn't have another area to hang out in.

Instead of another bed where the bottom bunk would be, you can incorporate a desk, floor pillows, or storage.

This utilizes space that would not otherwise be there if the bed was taking up floor room.


 

Pick A Theme

Just like throwing a good birthday party, decorating a room becomes much easier when you have a theme in mind.

And, you can do it without making it feel cheesy.

If your teenager loves the sand, sun, and surfing, you can turn surfboards into wall art and use a coastal color palette.

Incorporating a theme will allow your teen to express themselves, and you can do it without making it seem childish.

Fresh bedding, throw pillows, traditional sconces, and clean-lined bed frames all serve as a nice touch.

-back to top

 

Build A Loft

If you love DIY projects, or someone in your home does, this could change the entire feel of your teenager's bedroom.

If you have the space, ability, and means to do it, you can make your teens' bedroom feel like a makeshift clubhouse complete with a loft bed.

Built-in storage and a desk will make it a practical workspace, and the lofted section at the foot of the bed will be perfect for unwinding or hanging out with friends.

Even if you can't have a loft, you can create a similar feel with a hanging hammock chair, plush area rugs, bean bag chairs, and floor pillows.

-back to top

Give Your Teenager The Bedroom They Need

Teenagers are often complicated, complex, and unpredictable.

Luckily, their bedrooms don't have to be.

Using the tips above, you can create a bedroom that your teenager loves without making you shudder every time you look at it.

The teenage years are challenging, so every teen deserves a bedroom that lifts them up, calms them down, and makes them feel completely comfortable.

If you're ready to start picking out new pieces for your teen's room, head down to Furniture of Dalton.

They'll make sure your teenager leaves with a smile on their face.
