 Satisfaction Worth Waiting For!

When it comes to furniture, I see people from time to time settle for what they can get right now. They take what is available, because they don’t want to “wait” and that is ok. This always brings a question to mind though, and please think about it. If you always settle for what you can get, when do you get what you really want?
Over the years we have all experienced long waits, for many things in our lives. It is not the most pleasant experience, to be sure. Unfortunately, waiting is part of the cost of getting what we want. Today we are culturally geared to wanting and getting things right here right now. We have online everything (can anybody say “Amazon”)!
Look at all the “fast food “places: while they may or may not be the best, they are the busiest. Even if you are getting your super deluxe “Big Mac”, ordering it 11:30 AM you'll get it way faster than if you order it at 12:15 PM. Timing to plays a part in waiting for what we want.

The time we are willing to wait for an item is in direct proportion to what that item does for us, means to us, how it makes us feel. Furniture is one of those things that we may have to wait for, but the wait is worth it.

We use furniture to display our style, give a room a certain desired look, and it is furniture that we live our lives around! It's the family gatherings, holidays, special events with friends and loved ones that bring memories, fun, and comfort into our lives.

The expectations we have for furniture are huge, so you should be satisfied with your selection. We at Wilcox Furniture have a variety of selections to choose from.  Many are available now and we also have some that are worth waiting for.  Our mission is to make you a satisfied Wilcox customer now, and in the future.

"Drop Your Drawers!"
It's time to take control of your clothes!

You may think it a bit unusual, but we at Wilcox actually study drawers.  No, not your drawers, but the drawers that fit in our bedroom furniture.  I remember when I was a kid my mother stuffing the drawers so full that the bottom of the drawer fell out.  So when the drawer opened, I had socks and underwear leaking out the bottom! Liquid clothing? I don't think so.  Another problem I remember is that the drawers were difficult to pull out.  If you didn't pull evenly on both handles, the left side would be stuck and the right side would be out far enough that you could only see half the drawer. Or what about the drawer that snagged your favorite pair of dress socks?! Its even worse for you women, right?
Because of the different costs associated with our bedrooms (like beginning price points all the way to the top-of-the-line) you'll see every kind of drawer construction there is.  So there is a trade-off.  You'll need to decide how much you'll want to spend for the types of drawers you'll want to enjoy in your new bedroom. 
So, lets talk briefly about the drawer "box" itself and the different construction styles that you will want to look for.
You need (and want) a drawer side that will not separate from the drawer front or back.
English Dovetail has been around for centuries and is a great invention! This series of interlocking joints (mortise and tenons), will provide strength and durability over the length of use.  It's one of the more difficult joints to construct, but the best; therefore, it is more costly to you! Essentially, you get what you pay for!
Another style is the French Dovetail.  This is also a mortise and tenon, but if you'll notice that the drawer front is one long mortise and the drawer side is one long tenon.  So really it is one joint, verses the dozen or so joints that you have with the English Dovetail.  We sell many drawers with the French style, and it works well.
Some other manufacturers have a "butt" joint.  this is the least desirable and could be subject to problems in the future.  It is put together with glue and some staples! You'll find this on "entry level" bedroom groups. 
But what about drawer guides?!
Full extension ball bearing drawer guides are the best and most costly! But they are so cool! The more you pile in the drawer the  better they work! They're whisper quiet and will easily last the life of the bedroom group!
Many bedrooms (even the higher end) have wood or "metal on wood" glides.  These are good, and will also give you good performance over the life of the bedroom. 
So to sum it all up, English Dovetail is the best.  Full extension ball bearings are the coolest and quietest.  So when you shop, don't over look the most important thing after the look, and that's the quality of the drawers! If they're built right they'll last! So go ahead: Drop your drawers!

5 Hacks for Sleeping better with a Cold
Cold got you down?
Ugh, cold season has arrived – just in time to Grinchify us for the winter. Sleep is a crucial part of kicking the cold even though it may feel more stressful than restorative. Not to mention, symptoms tend to worsen as bedtime approaches.

The coughing and runny nose started so Sherlock Spallone put on the stethoscope to investigate 6 ways to enhance your sleep while battling your abominable cold.
1. Choose the best sleeping position

Many people prefer to stack on an extra
pillow when unable to sleep with a cold. This may cause your head to sag forward, worsening your breathing problems. Try using a foam wedge that lifts your upper body and helps the nasal packages drain. If you don’t have a wedge, layer pillows to form a triangular shape.
 If you wake up with one side of your nose blocked, try switching positions. Laying on your back may worsen a postnasal drip – try sleeping on your side. Also try a nasal expander, a band-aid for your nose with a spring inside.

2. Maintain a consistent room temperature
 Don’t be tempted to overheat the room because you have a cold. Keep the temperature at a comfortable level: 71f - 76f . The humidity in the room is important too. Dry air can worsen your cold symptoms and parch your nose and throat.

3. Don’t drink alcohol
Sure, it will make you drowsy. But
alcohol will dry you out, swell your sinuses and react badly with your cold or flu. Wait into until you’re feeling better and enjoy a Christmas mimosa.

4. Stick to your nightly routine
A cold can make it had to stick to your typical bedtime. But it’s best to wake up and head to bed at the same time as usual when you’re sick.
Sticking to a schedule not only makes it easier to fall asleep – it can assist in fighting off the next cold. One study suggests that people who don’t get enough zzz’s are three times more likely to catch a cold than those who get 8 or more hours of sleep a night. 

5. Have a soothing drink before bedMany people lose their appetite when the cold kicks in. "You don't need to increase your fluid intake when you're ill, but you do need to make sure you don't get dehydrated," says
Dr Eccles. "And hot drinks are very good, particularly at night time." Higher calorie drinks like Ovaltine or hot chocolate can help you sleep. More calories equal better sleep mode.

10 Things Great Sleepers Do Consistently
Sleep better to live better with a few simple tweaks to your routine

If you’ve had a great night’s sleep, your morning coffee is a bonus, not a personality changer. Trouble is, many Americans suffer from sleep deprivation – almost 50%, according to some studies. Even worse, long term sleep deprivation can lead to serious health issues and, in some cases, early death.

Improving our sleep health begins with re-envisioning ourselves as brilliant, first-in-class sleepers. If you’re ready to sleep better (and live better) get ready to adopt these sleep-boosting attitudes from great sleepers.
10 habits of highly effective sleepers

1. Practice stretching in the evening
Stretching later in the day reduces pent up muscle stress and helps you begin the relaxation needed for sleep. If stretching is new to you, start slow and don’t overstretch.

2. Give yourself permission

Understand that your work will never be done and that a good night’s sleep will help you be more productive and creative. Allow your mind to rest so you can start tomorrow strong.

3. Set an alarm for going to bed

What time do you want to wake up and how many hours do you want to sleep? Do the math and back it up to light’s out time. If you need to be in bed early, skip the nap and forego coffee by 2 pm so you’ll be able to fall asleep earlier.

4. Add an hour for powering down

Start turning off all your screen devices an hour before you hope to fall asleep. Spend the last hour before bed quietly chatting or reading a good book – a real book with pages. The
back light from electronics and TV wake you up rather than relax.

5. Grab a snack before bedtime

Say yes to bedtime snacks like peaches and Greek yogurt, or parmesan cheese toast. They have just the right amount of carbohydrates and protein for sleep.

Today we are doing a Throw-Back Tuesday blog, and remembering our founder Mr. Wilford “Bill” Wilcox. He was born May 25, 1914 in Iowa. Coming from Sioux City he moved to Corpus Christi, and in 1953 set up the first Wilcox Furniture, then known as a Quonset Hut.
Mr. Wilcox (Back Center) in a family portrait from the early 1920s.

The first store was a Quonset hut on the 5900 block of Lexington, which is now SPID near Airline. 

It was a no frills store, with no running water, and no bathroom. He made his own deliveries with a trailer pulled behind his 1950’s Chevy.  Within ten years, he employed 40 people and used four large trucks.

Mr. Wilcox (second from right) with some of his first employees next to their delivery truck. 
But the furniture business wasn’t the only thing he accomplished! He helped found and served as board president of Family Debt Counselors in 1970, which helped people with debt issues.  He and his wife, Marcia, furnished the local women’s shelter, gave rocking chairs to hospital maternity wards and actively supported Driscoll Children’s Hospital.  Marcia volunteered at the hospital, and after her passing in March of 1990 the Marcia K. Wilcox Scholarship fund was set up to send Driscoll cancer patients to college.

After Marcia’s death, Mr. Wilcox married Helen Magill, a longtime competitor of Magill Furniture Co. Both continued working in their stores through the 1990s.  Though out his life, he succeeded in opening a total of three retail outlets, all of which are still operated by the family.

Mr. Wilcox continued working until one month prior to his 95th birthday. He passed away January 18, 2015 at 100 years of age.  His history and hard work will live on. We here at Wilcox Furniture strive to make sure his work ethic and his stores carry on the legacy he started so many years ago.

The experts at HGTV say "A dining wing chair that sits nicely under a table as a host or hostess chair can also be put to use for extra seating in the living room." Not only does it add versatility to the collection, but it also adds color to your dining setting.

When it comes to designing your home, even the smallest details are of the utmost importance.  From the style of furniture, to the fabric it's covered in, you want something that will reflect your personality and own individual flair.  Here at Wilcox Furniture we strive to offer a variety of furniture to our customers to match those needs.  That's why we work closely with our manufacturers to make sure we can give you options.  

Best Home Furnishings is just one of the companies that we work with that will allow you to customize your furniture.  Whether you want to make statements with bold contemporary pieces, or if you're aiming for the traditional look, or something in between, Best allows you to do just that! 
Keeping up with today's trends, Best has developed a line of coastal/tropical fabrics that work great for areas near the water. Here are just a few of the unique fabrics that they have designed. 

The first is a shell print in a neutral colored base fabric.  The color can easily accent whatever room you choose to put it in, and the fun shell print will remind you of those relaxing days at the beach.  Put it in a room that has a view of the water and bring the calming feel of the ocean in to your home. 
The second print is a little more on the tropical side. The leave design can spice up your space with a jungle feel. While the base color is dark, the color of the leaves will add the dash of color you've been looking for. Cover a chair in this fabric, place it in the corner of your room and create your own escape.
The last is sure to be in style for years to come. A contrasting shell print in a classic black and white palette adds just the right touch. Add it into your room for just a pop of print.

That's not all.  Best has plenty more to offer.  So pick your chair, or sofa, or loveseat, whatever you choose, and cover it in a coastal fabric that suits your home.  
"The only thing more important than feeling good, is looking good."

Need to change up your room on a small budget? You can add "wow" to your room with a few accent pillows and totally revamp the look of your room!

There should be an accent pillow on each seating space, but avoid using just one pillow in  the  corners.  If your room has a modern flair, use one or two small groupings.  For elegant or more traditional rooms, use more pillows in your groupings.  But beware: Too many pillows will add clutter. 

Use different sizes of pillows. Don’t hide small ones behind larger ones, If your sofa, or chair, is one color, don’t be afraid to use patterned pillows. They work best with solid upholstery on the furniture. Want to mix it up some more? Mix up the patterns on your pillows. Have one striped, and another one floral! This will add contrast to your sofa and make the pillows really pop

Using throw blankets can also add some style to your living space. Be sure that the throw brings out an accent color that’s in your pillow design.

With just a few tips, your room can look completely refreshed and ready for company!

Looking for a way to update your room and give it a new look? The right accessories make it easy!  Here are a few tips, taken from La-Z-Boy's YouTube channel, on how vases, accent pillows, pictures, lamps and other accessories will bring new life into your décor.

First, you want to start with a blank canvas, so remove all of the accessories that are currently in the room you wish to change.  Then try to decide: Is my room country? Traditional? Modern? Ask yourself: Do the accessories I have go with that style? If not, it’s best to move them to another room and add pieces that do fit in.

As you put your accessories back in, start with the biggest pieces first, such as area rugs and tables. Then work your way down to the smaller pieces: lamps, vases, or pictures.  Your goal is to create coordination, not clutter.  So use odd number groupings, think sets of 3.  Any groupings too large will prevent your accessories from standing out. 

This is an example of a formal living room. Notice the accessories, all in groups of three.
Each end table has three items, as well as the center coffee table: three canisters, three magazines.
Even the sofa is accented with three throw pillows!  Like the group? Check it out on our webpage! 
 If you want to add pictures in your space, try having a common element throughout all of them.  Maybe all of them have the same frame or the same finish; or all of the pictures are printed in sepia, or black and white.  Want to hang your pictures? Don’t go too high, but rather keep the pictures at eye level.

Focus on the pictures in this group.  The ones hanging in the background aren't too high.
Not only that, but the color patterns are the same, as well as the frames. 
The pictures on the end table tie together as well.  Although they are printed differently, the frames match.
Did this group catch your eye? Find out more about it!
Another good tip: look through magazines for some inspiration.  Don’t be afraid to try it yourself.  In the end, you will add character to your room that you, your family, and your guests can all enjoy.
