Guide To Furniture Shopping

Use this guide to understand what to look for when shopping for furniture for seating, sleeping, storage, dining, and more.

Sofas & Couches

Sofas come in two-seater and three-seater styles. Two-seaters are often called loveseats or console sofas.

Consoles often have built-in cupholders and storage compartments between the seats. The console loveseat likely gets its name from the small storage compartment mounted between bucket seats in a car.

Ashley Console Loveseat

The storage console offers a convenient place to stash remotes and other miscellaneous items, keeping them close at hand.


Spring Supported Backs

You might hear spring-supported furniture referred to as having a camel back, channel back, or tufted back.

Camelback sofas often have nice curved lines. The upright, tight-back style can make it an elegant choice.

Camelback styles offer nice firm-back support.

Attached Back Cushions or Loose Cushions?

Pillow back styles may have either attached back cushions or loose back cushions. The attached back cushions are sewn into place.

Sofas with attached backs are often less expensive, making them a popular and affordable choice. One benefit of attached backs is that they stay neat and tidy.

Loose cushions are removable. You often see loose cushions which form a T shape over the arms of the couch. Loose cushions can be fluffed and flipped to keep your furniture looking fresh.

Pillows & More Pillows

Multi-pillow back sofas and loveseats have more pillows than seat cushions. These can be really comfy and often offer deep seating. This style might be a nice choice for those who like napping in front of the TV.

According to Ashley Furniture, the maximum number of throw pillows on a sofa is five. Many of our traditional sofas come with a set of throw pillows.

Many styles come with two pillows on each arm of the sofa. Some also include an oblong pillow in the center. These pillows are covered in a wide variety of colors, textures, and patterns to enhance your room decor.

Seat Cushions For Sofas

We welcome you to come in, and comfort test each and every living room set in our showroom.

Compare the firmness, support, and comfort of each seat cushion. Discover the comfort of high-resiliency foam cushions wrapped in thick poly fiber.

Triad Leasing is proud to carry Catnapper and Jackson Furniture products. Jackson Furniture and Catnapper products have blown-fiber seat backs. These blown-fiber backs are softer, offering less resistance and more comfort.

Jackson Furniture Living Room Set

Seat Cushions Memory Foam

There’s a Comfort-Gel gel-infused memory foam insert in each Jackson and Catnapper seat cushion. Ask about the spring systems within each piece we offer.

Jackson and Catnapper products feature steel springs of 12-gauge heat-tempered steel. There’s a heavier 8-gauge steel in the seat.

Many of our reclining sofas are built upon a sturdy corner-blocked frame and a metal reinforced seat. Jackson and Catnapper pieces have an exclusive Steel Tech Framing steel rail and stretcher system.

Sectional Seating

Sectionals are upholstered furniture pieces that are made in two or more sections and meant to fit together, often in a U-shape or an L-shape.

Some of our sectional styles are made of a sofa and loveseat joined together by a corner wedge. Many of these styles offer power reclining. Get a living room sectional that reclines delivered today.

Several collections include exciting features like built-in cupholders, storage compartments, built-in USB charging ports, and even LED lighting. LED lighting provides a theater-like TV-watching experience. We also offer modular sectionals.

Modular sectional collections often offer more pieces to choose from. These versatile pieces let you configure the sectional to your liking, moving pieces around as you wish.

Built-In USB Charging Ports

Charge your electronic devices from your favorite seat. Many of our power recliners, dual-sided recliner sofas, and loveseats feature a built-in USB charging port.

Several of our Ashley Furniture motion pieces feature a zero-draw USB port. Zero-draw technology only consumes power when the USB receptacle is in use.

Recliners & Lift Chairs

Recliners come in a wide variety of comfort styles.

All of our recliners have wonderful headrests. Many styles have power options that let you recline at the touch of a button. Come in, look around, and try them all.

Popular features include a power headrest, power footrest, and power recliner. The power headrest lets you adjust the angle or height of the headrest. Recline back, then adjust your headrest to improve your view of the TV.

Manual recliners often have an easy-to-use pull tab mechanism. Just pull the tab located on the side of the chair for smooth reclining motion.

Swivel recliner chairs let you rotate your chair, often a full 360 degrees. Rocker recliner chairs offer a smooth rocking motion. A rocker recliner often rocks with a stronger movement than a glider.

A glider recliner chair gently glides back and forth on a mechanism. Glider recliners can provide a smooth and quiet motion. Many of our recliners are zero-wall recliners. These are also called wall huggers.

The design means you only need a few inches of room between the back of the chair and the wall to recline. This efficient design prevents you from hitting the wall and it’s a great space saver for small spaces.

We also offer lift chairs. A power lift chair recliner goes from reclining to a standing chair with the touch of a button. Many of our power lift chair recliners have a built-in battery backup in case of power outages.

Triad Leasing offers lift chair rental. Ask about lift chair recliner rental at your Triad Leasing store today.

Furniture For Sleeping

Triad Leasing carries a wide variety of bedroom furniture sets. Many of these collections include headboards, footboards and rails, matching nightstands, chests, dressers, and TV stands.

Ashley Bedroom Set

These pieces are available in an array of finishes and styles. Many of these rich finishes enhance the wood veneers and provide dramatic visual effects.

We have casual and rustic styles which are stained a color or distressed for a warm vintage country feel. These distressed styles are battered and weathered to make them look older.

Because distressing can hide normal wear and tear, these casual farmhouse styles are a popular choice for busy families. Our bed styles are varied. Come in to compare traditional bed frames to modern platform foundations.

Platform foundations often consist of wooden frames and slats. These foundations may feel firmer than a traditional box spring because they lack the spring. Try a platform foundation under one of our memory foam or hybrid mattresses.

For those who desire a calm bedroom retreat, consider pairing light neutral colors with an upholstered headboard. Upholstered headboards are padded and covered in upholstery fabric, often linen-weave or easy-care polyester fabrics.

Some have details such as nail head trim. The choices and options are enormous.

Furniture For Storage

Furniture with storage is often called case goods. Triad Leasing carries a nice selection of storage pieces such as chests of drawers, dressers, gentlemen’s chests, nightstands, storage beds, and media cabinets or TV stands.

We carry the name brands you know and trust. Find quality pieces. The drawers fit properly, and glide easily. Cabinet doors open and close smoothly with strong hardware, hinges, and handles.

Triad Leasing carries panel beds with storage drawers. Choose a panel bed with 4 storage drawers along the bedside or a panel bed with 2 drawers built into the footboard of the bed.

Many of the storage pieces we carry are constructed with beautiful wood veneers, wood, and engineered wood. Veneers are thin sheets of hardwood that are attached to the exterior of the furniture.

These veneers can be stained, burnished, and finished to create beautiful visual effects. Often, veneered pieces can resist warping or cracking due to humidity. This is because the base or core of the piece can be made of plywood. The alternating grain in plywood results in stability and durability over time.

Dining Room Furniture

Dining room tables come in so many sizes and shapes. Triad Leasing keeps a nice selection in stock.

Ashley Dining Table

Come in and browse dinettes, rectangular tables, oval tables, round tables, and counter-height dining tables to name a few.

Some of our dining tables have hidden storage compartments. Look for drawers or compartments hidden under the tabletop.

Some tables have built-in shelves. If you have a small dining area, we have space-saving dinettes with stools.

Round tables work great in small dining spaces. The round shape leaves room for cabinets or cupboards in the corner of the room. A wooden table with plain legs offers modern appeal.

If you want a sturdy and spacious table, many have extension leaves and can expand to accommodate more people. For those who like a coordinated look, we can rent, lease or sell dining room furniture in sets.

Whether you want a formal dining area or a small breakfast nook, let us help you find the perfect dining table and chair set. Discover dining chairs in just about every style, shape, color, and finish including upholstered dining chairs. Come see them all.

We can help you select a table size that maximizes seating and makes the most of your space.

Triad Leasing carries a wide selection of furniture types for your home. Find traditional styles, farmhouse style pieces, transitional styling, and rustic or contemporary furniture.

Let us help you find comfortable seating, space-saving storage options, inviting bedroom furnishings, and the type of dining room furniture you can enjoy for years.
