The Sofa: Uniting Your Family on Thanksgiving

There’s a slight nip in the air, lights are twinkling on rooftops, and the malls are slowly filling with shoppers. Every sign is telling you it’s the Christmas season, so, of course, we are actually approaching Thanksgiving. A much loved holiday — if often a bit underappreciated — before the truly frantic preparations for Christmas begin, Thanksgiving gives us time to pause, to come together, and to appreciate one another’s company. While it might often seem like a rehearsal for Christmas dinner, Thanksgiving holds its own in the grand American tradition of bringing together people who may not see eye to eye, but still love each other. And what backdrop truly brings all of the family together? Not turkey and stuffing, delicious as they might be, but the humble family sofa, where everyone relaxes together after the feast.

Sofas are where we sit to unwind (and of course, discreetly loosen our belts) after our fabulous meal. Whether it is the candied sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, turkey, or stuffing, the favorite part of the meal might vary from person to person, but the place we all congregate afterwards stays the same. This often simple piece of furniture is an essential part of after dinner family activities. Seated comfortably together we often enjoy catching up, watching a movie, or playing a board game. We spend most of our holiday evening on the sofa, so it is arguably one of the most important pieces of furniture of the night – perhaps even as important as the dining room table we sit at to gobble up our food.

Here on Miramar Street, the premier furniture shopping district in San Diego, our Sofa Designers family knows how important it is for you and your family to have that perfect sofa or sectional to spend the evening on. Whether you are planning a modest get-together or a rowdy celebration, our 20,000 foot showroom features a vast amount of seating options from the smallest of sofas to the largest of sectionals in many different colors and styles. Our in-house Interior Designers are eager to help you find a flawless seating option that sets the mood for the festivities. They won’t be intimidated by your plans to host a cutting-edge cocktail party that demands only the most modern furniture or a homey, traditional gathering that calls for the coziest of seating styles. And if you’re not sure yet what ambience you’d like your living room to have, our Interior Designers can help inspiration strike by leading you through our various tastefully fashioned living room displays.

Furthermore, if you have any particular needs that our current stock of sofas do not fulfill, we also offer custom made sofas and sectionals tailored to your exact requirements. So while we know you’re thankful that both Uncle David and your best friend Susie could make it to the festivities, we fully understand that to prevent them from arguing the whole night about politics, they will need to sit on the opposite ends of an oversized sectional custom fitted to your large living room. And since the cranberry sauce and gravy coated fingerprints left behind by your favorite nephew Billy are guaranteed to appear all over the house, Sofa Designers offers various types of stain resistant cloth for your custom sofa or sectional in a wide variety of colors so that you won’t have to worry when the inevitable happens – your custom sofa will still look new on Christmas.

When the last slice of pumpkin pie has been devoured, and sweet little Billy is finally starting to nod off during that last game of monopoly while his father snores quietly on the sofa, you don’t need to be concerned about finding space for everyone with the large amount of stylish and comfortable sofa sleepers available in our Flexsteel Gallery. Having been in the furniture business for over a century, Flexsteel is known for its outstandingly engineered, high quality furniture and its sofa sleepers are no exception. Our Flexsteel sofa sleepers are available in twin, full, and queen sizes and come in a variety of different fabrics (even leather!), and styles with the option to add nail heads or wooden legs.
You can even create your own custom designed sofa sleeper from scratch to prepare for the upcoming holiday season. As with our other custom sectionals and sofas, sleepers are available in whatever styles, upholstery, and comfort levels you desire. The superb Luxury Cushion comes standard to all of our sleepers, with the Plush Cushion available for your family members that like to be enveloped in softness, and the excellent choice of the High Resiliency Cushion if you like to host often. You even have the added benefit of being able to select your preferred mattress type: the cozy comfort mattress, memory flex mattress, or majestic air mattress. With these top-of-the-line sofa sleepers, you can fit all those relatives and the whole family can be ready and refreshed the following morning for the biggest shopping day of the year.

So whether you are celebrating Thanksgiving, Hanukkah or a combination of the two (popularly dubbed Thanksgivukkah) this year, make sure you have the perfect furniture centerpiece for your celebrations. Investing in bringing your family together is always a good choice, and any sofa you select from Sofa Designers will last many holidays into the future. You are guaranteed to find the ideal seating to fit you and your family’s needs in our selection of sofas, sectionals, and sofa sleepers – especially since you have the option to custom order it. So as you prepare for this very special family event, we wish you and your family a very happy, healthful, and harmonious holiday season.
