The Mattress Guide: What Keeps You Up at Night? | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress
What keeps you up at night? What bothers you in the morning after a night’s rest? Here are some of the most common problems that keep people up at night and ways your mattress can help you out.

Back Pain

Sleeping is when your body gets a chance to rest and heal—it shouldn't be causing you more pain. Our team recommends this combo:

  • An adjustable bed to relieve pressure points
  • A memory foam mattress for just the right support
Adjustable Bases | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress Memory Foam Mattresses | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress

Partner or Pet Movement

Are you a light sleeper? Do you or your partner (or a pet) toss and turn all night? Or maybe you go to bed before they do?

  • A memory foam mattress or a gel memory foam mattress. Memory foam dampens movement and minimizes disturbances.
  • If you prefer a spring mattress, make sure you pick a pocketed coil style. Movement doesn’t transfer as easily because the coils aren’t connected all the way across the mattress. If your current mattress hasa big dip in the middle, it’s probably because it’s a connected coil mattress. If one coil breaks, it impacts the support from nearby coils, too.

Pressure Points

Do your pressure points bother you? You may want to try:

  • A medium-level comfort (plush) type mattress. If you go too firm, there may not be enough give; too soft, there may not be enough support.
  • A memory foam or gel memory foam mattress.  Memory foam helps disperse the weight from pressure points because its conforming nature makes you feeling as if you’re "sinking in" to the mattress

Sleep Temperature

If you frequently wake up from being too hot or too cold, consider what your mattress is made of.

If you sleep cold, look for a memory foam mattress. Traditional memory foam holds your body heat. However, no need to worry that you’ll burn up—modern memory foam won’t make you sweat like the memory foam used in mattresses a decade ago.

However, if you sleep hot, look for a mattress that has cooling technology:

  • Gel memory foam mattresses are one of the newest technologies, created for a different overall feel compared to just memory foam. Gel memory foam contains a mix of gel and foam that helps disperse heat and feels cool to the touch.
  • Latex foams are naturally hypoallergenic and breathable so they help with air flow, which helps regulate sleep temperature. Side note: Latex foams are safe for people with latex allergies because of a special washing process used before building the mattress.

Snoring

Snoring is a common problem with several possible causes, so be sure to check with your doctor, but one common solution is an adjustable bed. By keeping the upper torso slightly elevated, your airways are less likely to be restricted. This can drastically reduce snoring.

How to Host an Easter Meal in 4 Steps | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress
One of the best parts of Easter: Reconnecting with the family.

One of the most stressful parts of Easter: Prepping for the family to come over.

If you are hosting Easter brunch or dinner this year, you don’t need to totally transform your dining room. One tweak might be all you need to get ready for an elegant Easter dinner. Here are our 4 tips for a smooth family gathering for Easter.
Step 1: Focus on the Dining Table | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress

Focus on your dining table. Gathering your loved ones around the table to enjoy an Easter feast is all about the food, the conversation, and whom you share it with. A decorated table sets the stage: Flowers in vases, spring decor, and pastel colors make the focal point of your holiday festive and inviting.

Step 2: Make Your Seating Flexible | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress
Make your seating flexible. Not sure if those cousins will really show up? Or maybe you have a last-minute addition to the guest list? Make sure you can adjust your seating arrangement as necessary. Store extra chairs or a long bench against the wall, and if the cousins don’t make it after all, you can use those spots to hold the kids’ Easter baskets during your meal.

Step 3: Stay Organized | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress

Stay organized. What’s going to be your biggest challenge for this Easter holiday? (Besides those cousins who never remember to RSVP, natch.) Need more storage? A display area? A place to lay out food? Whatever your need, be sure to make the decisions ahead of your event to prevent panicked searches for more wine,  wine glasses, additional serving ware, napkins, tablecloths, serving trays, large serving bowls, or anything else you might need.

  • Consider a chest or china cabinet with built-in cabinets or wine rack. Bonus: They’re a pretty spot to display the china you inherited from grandma
  • To serve a buffet-style dinner, choose a sideboard, buffet, or long side table
  • To display Easter decorations and keep the Easter baskets out of reach until the hunt, you would be well-served with the high shelving of an elegant etagere

Step 3: Stay Organized | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress
Keep the kids happy. If you are entertaining a bunch of little egg-hunters on Easter, they are going to love sitting at the kids table this year. With its pastel colors, this pint-sized Easter dining table will still match your decorations. Be sure to add a plastic tablecloth if they’re dying eggs—memories are best remembered on Instagram, not on the furniture.

Top Picks: New Patio Furniture | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress
Spring is officially here and summer is around the corner! Celebrate the warming weather by treating yourself to some outdoor furniture from our awesome selection at Weekends Only. Check out our handpicked favorites.

Outdoor Dining

When choosing an dining set to entertain family and friends in the outdoors, think about how many you’ll want to seat around a typical meal. Also consider how much space you have on your patio–the more chairs you try to fit around the table, the more space you will need for guests to pull their chairs in and out.

If you like the classic wrought iron look, this elegant Geneva dining set would be a good choice for seating 6.

Maui Ivory and Cobalt Blue Wicker 7 Piece Outdoor Dining Set | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress
If you are looking for space to spread out and lounge while you eat outside, consider a big outdoor sectional with a cocktail table and built-in end tables, like the La Hoya.
La Hoya 2 Piece Sectional With Denim Blue Cushions | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress

Outdoor Seating

Do you need extra seating on the patio, in the backyard, on a garden path, or on your porch? The Butterfly Mosaic Bench and Sunny Butterfly Chair will brighten any outside area. Beautiful details like a butterfly back, a bright yellow color, or a mosaic tile seat can bring your outdoor areas to life.

There is nothing like rocking in a warm breeze. A rocking bench like the Daphne Metal Rocking Bench, with its intricate metal back and curled arms, helps set the scene for many happy moments on your patio or porch.
Daphne Metal Rocking Bench | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress
Most outdoor seating areas will need at least a couple chairs that are practical, easy to move, and quick-drying. The Hollywood Chair is the perfect piece to add a little extra seating with a fun splash of color. Seats like these dry quickly because of its thin textilene fabric and keep their color vivid with UV protectant quality. They also stack when they aren’t needed.
Hollywood Green Chair | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress
Where there was once only an empty patio, you can now create a spot to relax, chat, and sip iced tea. All you need is the help of two seats and a table. The Bayside Set is extra comfy and functional with its contrasting-stripe padded seating and small marble-painted glass table.

Outdoor Accents

When adding accents, choose pieces that make your patio or porch not only more attractive but also more functional. The more it serves your needs, the more it will be used. And we all need more outside time!

Convenient and easy to place, this small Castle Rock end table has an ice bucket compartment below its latticed top, which means it’s ready for after-dinner drinks.

Fire pits give light and warmth and draw everyone to them,. Perfect for family fun on a summer night, the Stack Stone Propane Fire Pit is a beautiful quick-start fire pit, accented by black stacked stones around the base. S’mores not included, but always encouraged.
Stack Stone Propane Fire Pit | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress
To make the outdoors more hospitable, we need a little protection from the elements. Add an umbrella to any outdoor space that doesn’t have full shade or protection from the rain. This 8’ Turquoise Market Umbrella adds a beautiful pop of color while providing shade and shelter to your outdoor area.

Know Your Leather | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress

What you know: Leather furniture is a classic home décor staple, and it never goes out of style.

What you might not know: There are 5 different kinds of leather furniture.

If you're shopping for leather, you might be wondering how each kind is different and which type of leather is right for you. Are looking for a more affordable way to get the look and feel of leather? Are you looking to invest in a high-quality leather piece that will last over a decade and age beautifully? Or are you looking for a piece with a balance of quality and convenience that is easy to maintain even with children and pets? Technological enhancements and the push for lower prices have created a huge range in leather types and qualities. Let’s look at the characteristics of the different types of leather we offer so you can get the most bang for your buck.

Know Your Leather | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress

100% Top Grain Leather

100% Top Grain Leather pieces have top grain leather covering the entire piece of furniture. Top Grain Leather comes from the "top" or outermost, premium layer of cowhide. It’s the least processed and most natural of leather. This allows each piece to have a luxurious look and feel with a naturally breathable surface. Each 100% Top Grain Leather piece is extremely durable and ages beautifully, developing a unique patina, and can last 10-15 years if maintained well. It is best kept away from direct heat and sunlight and should be conditioned twice a year with leather conditioner. Because it’s the highest quality of leather, it is also the priciest. (But don’t worry—you’ll always find the best prices at Weekends Only!)

100% Leather

Our 100% Leather pieces have top grain leather covering the seating areas with split leather on sides and back. Split leather is the second layer after the top grain is cut off. It maintains the strong durability and luxurious look and feel of leather. While it loses some of the softness and natural grain look found in top grain leather, it still has a breathable surface. 100% leather is best kept away from direct heat and sunlight and should be conditioned twice a year.

Leather Match

Our Leather Match pieces have top grain leather covering the seating areas (arms, back, and seat) with color-matched vinyl or bonded leather on the sides and back. The vinyl or bonded leather is processed to match the color and texture of top grain leather and gives the sides the look of leather at a much lower manufacturing cost, thus creating a lower price for shoppers. These pieces are best kept away from direct heat and sunlight and the leather seating section should be conditioned twice a year with leather conditioner.

Bonded Leather

Our Bonded Leather pieces offer the look of leather at a much lower price with man-made material from leather scraps mixed with polyurethane. Bonded leather is processed to match the color and texture of leather. Since it’s not genuine leather, it’s not as strong or durable as split or top grain leather. The leather content of the bonded material still maintains some durability, but these pieces will not be as long-lasting as top grain leather, especially if used often. The pieces are easy to maintain and clean and come in varying levels of quality. They may also be called "blended," "reconstituted," or "gel" leather.

Faux Leather and High Performance Fabric

Our Faux Leather or High Performance Fabric pieces provide a leather look at the lowest cost. High performance fabric is created with polyester fabric in a polyurethane coating embossed and dyed to look like leather. Faux leather is made with polyurethane fabric or a combination of polyester and polyurethane. Both come in a range of textures and colors. They are water-repellent and stain and fade resistant, making these pieces easy to maintain and clean. It comes in varying levels of quality and may also be called "high performance," "pleather," or "vinyl."

4 Ways to Max Out on Storage in a Small Space | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress Blog
Too much stuff. Not enough space. Sound like the story of your life?

You’ve pitched or donated what you don’t use anymore, but it still seems like your closet never has enough room.  Well, rest assured you don’t have to move into a bigger house or apartment to solve space issues because you have more storage options than your closet. Here are a few our favorite space-saving solutions…

Shelves, Bookcases, and Cabinets

Shelves are classic go-to storage for items like books and files. They don’t have to be the standard wall shelves either. Keep an eye out for furniture pieces that incorporate shelving into your home office, living room, bathroom, and other rooms without the additional bulk. Cabinets are a great option if you prefer to keep items out of sight.

Seats with Secrets

Ottomans and benches have awesome perks. They can be used as extra seating or a comfy spot to prop your feet, but many also open to reveal storage handy for blankets, shoes, and anything else you don’t need every day. Try storage ottomans and benches with serving trays if you love hosting guests.

Catching Zzz’s With Storage, Please

Storage beds are an awesome way of freeing up a bedroom or linen closet to be used for something else. They are also a great way to eliminate a dresser or even create more space for - that’s right! – more clothes. If you’re ever in need for another pillow or blanket in the middle of the night, you wouldn’t even have to get out of bed.

Kitchen & Dining Organization

If you need to make more space in your kitchen or dining area, try finding classic pieces with built-in storage or unique problem-solvers that will keep you organized.

  • If you don't have a kitchen pantry or yours is too small, create one with a kitchen cupboard or bar cabinet placed in a corner or narrow space between kitchen counters
  • Wish you had more counter space? Try a kitchen island with drawers, cabinets, shelves, a wine rack, or drop-down leaves. These super-functional pieces can also double as kitchen tables
  • Even the traditional dining room can deliver more storage than you might expect with under-table shelves, a tall china cabinet, or a sideboard/server/buffet (whichever term you prefer)

3 Questions Every Mattress Shopper Has | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress

Have you been putting off shopping for a new mattress? We know it can feel overwhelming to find just the right one, but as shoemaker John Wildsmith said, "You are either in your bed or in your shoes, so it pays to invest in both." We're here to help with the mattress part! Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions from mattress shoppers.

1. Is a new mattress really worth the money?

Yes! Don’t underrate the power of a good mattress. According to WebMD:

  • Your mattress is very important to quality sleep
  • Quality sleep is crucial to our health and immune system, learning and memory, accident prevention, and safety
  • You should not keep a mattress longer than its lifespan

Keeping an old mattress for too long can actually lead to health issues like allergies. (You might not be the only living thing in your bed at night!) If you find yourself tossing and turning at night or if you can’t remember when you bought this mattress, it’s time to go shopping.

2. How can I find a good mattress for a good value?

We’ll let you in on a little secret: We don’t sell name-brand mattresses. Why? Because our mission is to save our customers money!

At many mattress retailers, the price of a mattress is determined not only by the cost of materials and labor, but also by advertising expenses. In addition, many brands have minimum pricing restrictions so retailers can’t sell them for prices lower than a minimum price set by the manufacturer. Retailers might offer other forms of compensation to offset the cost, but they won’t be able to beat their competitors on the actual price of the mattress. That can add a lot to the cost of a high-end, name-brand mattress!

When well-known mattress manufacturers started giving us minimum pricing restrictions, we went a different route to keep saving you money. Weekends Only now works directly with manufacturers like Sherwood and Restonic to match (or exceed) the quality of brand names without getting stuck with their prices. With us, you get the best sleep at the best price!

3. Can I really test out and lie down on the mattresses in the store?

Of course! And we have mattress specialists standing by to answer any questions you may have. Here are a few tips to make your experience even better:

  • We offer test pillows (with sanitary covers) so you can recreate how you sleep. Go ahead and grab as many pillows as you typically sleep with
  • Take your time. WebMD suggests resting on the mattress for as much as 20 minutes to test it out. You need to know what it would be like if the mattress were in your home, so please, make yourself at home!
  • Use the color code. When shopping at Weekends Only, you can find your mattress preferences by using our color code: Blue = Firm; Orange = Plush; Green = Ultra Plush
  • Try an adjustable base. Adjustable bases have additional benefits like helping alleviate snoring, sleep apnea, indigestion, and back pain
  • Relax and enjoy!

Weekends Only Furniture and MattressThe recipe for a good night’s sleep? A comfortable mattress at a price that won’t keep you up at night. You’ll find it at Weekends Only! Here are few mattresses to get your search started:

PANTONE Spring 2017 Colors
Happy 2017! With a New Year comes PANTONE’s announcement of the new color of the year. Are you as excited as we are?

PANTONE’s 2017 Color of the Year is (drumroll, please)…Greenery! This gorgeous green is an elegant hue to add to your home décor, as are PANTONE’s other nine spring colors of 2017: Primrose Yellow, Pale Dogwood, Hazelnut, Island Paradise, Flame, Pink Yarrow, Niagara, Kale, and Lapis Blue.

Sometimes taking on color can make people nervous. What if the color is too bold? What if it doesn’t match with the room? We’re here to help with our fail-proof tips for piecing together your own personal rainbow at home.

1. Start with a neutral

Do you have a go-to neutral color? Look around your home to see what you’re already using in your furniture and accents. Perhaps you love a soft and warm chocolate brown, or maybe charcoal gray is your thing. You might even find PANTONE colors, like the beigey Hazelnut or the subtle pink Pale Dogwood, as your favorite neutrals.

2. Pick your favorite statement colors

Are you absolutely in love with the color of the year, Greenery? (I know I am.) Or maybe you keep looking at the royal tone of Lapis Blue? You can incorporate your favorite bold colors in with your neutral palette. Island Paradise is a nice contrast with Hazelnut, and Flame would work well as an accent for furniture with deep wood tones.

If you’re still trying to find a palette you love, check out PANTONE’s website or a color wheel tool like Adobe Kuler. These will let you explore color pairings to help you find what flows.

3. Get mixing and matching!

Once you know what you want, it’s just a matter of finding where these colors go.

Let your neutral be your base. Keep your chosen neutral(s) the center of your color circle. If you went with a beige, you would want to have that color be dominant in your bigger furniture pieces and decor, such as a couch or the wood tones of your bed frame. It will be the canvas on which you create your art!

Decorate with your palette. Once you have your neutral staple pieces, the real fun can begin! There are so many ways to incorporate your chosen color palette. Larger pieces like accent tables, wall art, chairs, and rugs tend to draw the eye to that corner of the room because of their size, while smaller accessories like vases and throw pillows add just a pop of visual interest to a room. Even outdoor pieces like umbrellas can liven up a patio or deck.

Claire Tufted Teal Chair Kaycee 18x18 PillowAzelea Pink Faux Fur Stool  Market Umbrella

We hope you have fun springing into 2017 with these colors in mind. We can’t wait to see which of our pieces you incorporate into your home this year! Happy New Color of the Year!

It is finally time to deck your halls! So put on some music, rock around that Christmas tree, and get ready to decorate for your holiday season! Here are 3 different holiday decorating styles we love for this time of year.

Holiday Style: Fa La La La Festive

Weekends Only Fa La La La Festive Room DecorSnow and Mistletoe and Presents Under the Tree. Be proud of your love for Christmas colors, lights, and figurines! Place them near your front entrance, where the family hangs out, and anywhere else that strikes your fancy! Bring out the snowmen, Santas, and anything that makes you think of winter. Incorporate bright red, green, silver, and gold.

Holiday Style: 'Tis the Season for Subtlety

We Need a Little Christmas. If you adore the winter holidays, but want to play it cool, you still have options. You can keep the traditional holiday colors, but balance them with neutrals. Instead of adding a solid red throw pillow to your couch, you might choose one with a subtle stripe pattern. Is this pillow designed to look like a candy cane? You decide! Throw in a few silver and gold accents, like peppermint-scented candies in metallic holders, to warm and welcome holiday visitors with classy holiday cheer!

Holiday Style: Winter Wonderland

So Much Funukkah To Celebrate Hanukkah. If you're celebrating Hanukkah this time of year, you can't go wrong with the traditional blue and silver color combo. A bonus perk: These colors won't look passé after January 1st, which makes it a great color scheme for those who find Christmas reds and greens too gaudy. Pairing holiday touches with white lights or a candle display will look sharp all season, and a mirrored bar is the perfect addition to any party, especially for ringing in the new year. A fireplace also adds warmth to your celebrations.

What is your favorite holiday decorating style?

Whether your home is sprinkled with snowflakes or candles, Rudolph or a small pop of red in a throw pillow, we wish you happy holiday decorating!

4 Reasons We Love Fireplaces | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress
You might not be ready to start singing "Let it Snow," but chilly weather makes it the perfect time to find a fireplace. A fireplace is one of the most versatile centerpieces of a home, and there are many reasons to ♥ them. Check out our top 4!

1. Ideal Decor Spot: Your mantle (like the weather) can change with the season. Deck it out with books, candles, accessories, festive vases, and boughs of holly when the holidays come around.

2. Creates Elegant Ambiance: A fireplace provides a feeling of comfort. We all love to gather around a crackling fire and enjoy the seasonal sights and scents, and the intricate designs of  fireplace screens add to that look while keeping any stray sparks from flying.

3. Warms the Room
: Literally. Fireplaces put the fun in functional: a fireplace like the La Salle Fireplace can easily heat up a 400 square-foot room!

4. Space Saver:
Your fireplace can also double as extra storage and a spot for your TV—talk about a dynamic duo! The Quinden Media Fireplace comes with multiple storage shelves and cubbies.
