Tailgating at Home

Football season is here and we couldn’t be more excited! While stadium capacities have been decreased and less people are able to gather in-person at the games, that doesn’t mean the tailgating fun is over. Tailgating at home is the next best thing to being at the game in person, and we might even argue, better! With a few simple tips and tricks, you can turn your living room, backyard, driveway or man-cave into the ultimate tailgating destination. 

  1. The Right Decor - Tailgating is all about creating the game-day experience and having the right decor can make all the difference. Set up tailgating tents outside, have the pregame on the TV, and incorporate team colors in fun ways! Colored plates, koozies, and flags are a great way to show team spirit, and you can make it as simple or elaborate as you like. Try out DIY decorations, like this fun Goalpost Centerpiece, to take your at-home tailgate to the next level! 

  1. Game Day Food - If we’re being honest, the food alone is all the reason we need to have a tailgating party at home! The game is great, but if you have the right game day spread, you’re happy regardless of whether or not your team is victorious. There are so many fun options when it comes to tailgate food, but the name of the game is to keep it simple. Finger foods are always a good idea and these Cajun Sausage Puffs with Bourbon Mustard are the perfect dressed-up pigs in a blanket! Loaded Nachos are also a crowd-pleaser and they are simple to make and pile high on your plate. We can’t forget dessert! Football Woopie Pies with Cinnamon Cream are the ultimate sweet treats that are festive and delicious. 

  1. The Ultimate Game Watching Setup - You can’t have a tailgating party without a great place to watch the game comfortably. This is where Furniture of Dalton has you covered! We have a huge selection of couches, motion sofas, sectionals, recliners, and more to help you create the perfect game day experience. Whether you prefer a movie room setup complete with individual recliners or a large sectional for everyone to pile onto in the living room, our Hooker gallery has it all!

10 Couches That Won't Go Out Of Style

10 Couches That Won't Go Out Of Style

Posted on: October 16, 2019

Your couch is likely the most important as well as the most expensive piece of furniture in your living room.

If you're like most people, you thought for hours about what type of couch would look best in your new or redesigned living room.

When it comes to choosing the couch that's right for you and your new living room, a classic style is a safe way to make your hard earned money last as long as it can.

A classic, well-designed couch will survive the test of time and stay in style no matter how the trends around it are changing.

It can even increase in value as it ages.

In the article below, we'll look at ten couches that will last you for years to come.

Table Of Contents

  • Cabriole

  • CamelBack

  • English and Bridgewater

  • Modern Mid-Century

  • Lawson

  • Tuxedo and Knole

  • Sectional

  • Chesterfield

  • Stick With The Classics


The Cabriole

The cabriole is an 18th-century French style sofa that traditionally has carved wooden legs and trim, and a back that curves into the equal height arms in one piece.

The arms often curve inward, creating a long continuous line from arm to arm.

With an original element and a modern twist, the cabriole sofa can fit well with both traditional and modern style homes.

The CamelBack

As its name suggests, the camelback sofa's main design feature is the center humped backing and exposed wooden legs.

You'll be hard pressed to find a camel back sofa without a tight back, and they are often tufted.

Camel backs are excellent couches for a traditional styled home.

The English and Bridgewater

The English sofa, also known as the English rolled arm, is well-known for its curvy high back, dropping low arm, and the unique swoop of the side.

The upholstery is tight all over, but still decently cushioned, including the arms.

Some English sofas have arms so low that they will appear to be armless.

The Bridgewater sofa is similar to the English sofa, except the Bridgewater sofa has a loose back and seat cushions, allowing you to adjust the firmness of both.

These classic couches are surprisingly versatile and can complement any room style.

The Modern Mid-Century

The modern mid-century sofa boasts a unique minimal design and clean lines.

It's designed to look stylish as well as comfortable, with an exposed wooden frame and long legs.

It puts a modern twist on material and shape and remains as popular today as it was back in the 1940s.

Modern Mid Century Couch

The Lawson

The Lawson sofa has straight lines with arms much lower than it's back.

The signature design element of the Lawson sofa is back pillows that separate from the frame, allowing your back to rest at a comfortable angle.

Both of the back pillows and seat cushions are box-shaped with welts at the edges.

The arms are typically slim and rectangular or a small roll.

Since the Lawson has several different options, it can be made to fit in with many room styles.

Straight legs and rectangular arms give the Lawson a modern feel, while a tailored or ruffled skirt with small roll arms make the Lawson sofa perfect for your traditional or country home.

The Tuxedo and Knole

The Tuxedo sofa has straight lines, a high back, and equal height arms that are either squared or slightly flared out.

The Knole is similar to the Tuxedo with a high, straight back and slightly flared arms at the same height.

However, the Knole sofa can be lowered to provide extra bench seating.

The Sectional

The sectional sofa is a multi-piece sofa that can be arranged in multiple ways.

Sectional sofas are practical, easy to move, they maximize your space, increase your seating capacity, and are ideal for corners.

Sectionals typically come in three or five pieces, although you can configure your own seating from two to eight pieces.

The most common configurations are an L-shape and U-shape, and curved shapes work well with modern living rooms.

Most sectionals will come with fixtures that connect the pieces together to keep them from separating during use.

Sectional Couch

The Chesterfield

The Chesterfield remains as popular today as it was hundreds of years ago.

It has retained its distinguished elegance and is still an icon that is synonymous with luxury.

Whether your style is traditional, modern, retro, rustic, or romantic, the Chesterfield sofa will work in your living room.

The classic Chesterfield comes in mahogany brown with padded leather and rolled arms.

It's back is the same height, and it curves outward at the top. 

It features a tufted design on the back and arms, and sometimes even on the seat.

A modern Chesterfield sofa will have more choices for color, material, and shape.

Black, white, red, blue, and green are popular colors for the leather, wool, velvet, or another material.

If you don't like the curved top, no problem. There are modern versions of the Chesterfield with clean lines in the back you can choose from.

Stick With The Classics

When you're trying to decide what couch will be best for your new living room, make it easier on yourself by sticking with the classics.

Any of the ten couches we talked about above will look good in just about any style of living room, and they will last years to come.

Some of those couches have been around for centuries, so you know they can stand the test of time.
