The Safest Childrens Furniture

Where do you find the safest children's furniture? You find it at Hildreths.
With many choices of styles and colors our Young America collection will take
your child from crib to college with Built to Grow beds in a stylish, and organized
fashion. Most importantly, however, Young America is the safest children's furniture line.
Young America is made in America, therefore the pieces must pass stricter regulations
that are continuously met with Greenguard and Intertek Certification. This means you can
feel secure knowing that the furniture has been awarded for it’s safety and design. Made
of solid hardwoods such as North American Maple and Poplar, self-closing drawers (that
won’t hurt little fingers) and anti-tilt, durable, quality construction, you can trust Young
America. There is no need to look any further. It’s here at Hildreths.

If you’re not planning a vacation this winter

If you’re not planning a vacation this winter then you may want to think about planning a cleansing “staycation”. The dulldrums of winter are a great time to purge yourself of unused clutter. An interior “cleanse” of your home can be rewarding in so many ways. Unused items that have sat in storage or just have become obsolete can be turned in to your local charity for a tax reduction and will help a family in need as well. After a major “purge” you may find that there is room for a new piece or two, which can go a long way in cheering you up during these gloomy winter months. Hildreths has a wide variety of  furniture, accessories and home goods all on sale this month! Think about a nice new cozy chair or brighten up a room with colorful accent pieces. Need a new slipcover? Hildreths custom work room can fabricate a new slipcover or re-upholster an existing piece to give Grandma’s chair a brand new life! Come in and let our experienced staff guide you towards revitalizing you home.

That’s right!  Come to Hildreths and see our many new
Sofas available as shown or in many other fabric choices.

This beautiful sofa is VERY reasobable at its’ regular price of
$986 and with Hildreths’ 20% OFF it’s only $789!
It’s really comfortable, too.
Below are more beautiful sofas at similar prices.

Come in and see these—and so many more!—sofas at Hildreths today!

Let's get closets Organized

Lets get the closets organized! Now is a perfect time with winter here to start cleaning out closets and getting organized. Once you begin to place clothing back into the closet think about buying SOFT GRIP HANGERS. These wonderful hangers take up less room in your closet and have soft grips to keep clothing on the hanger and not the floor. Using under the bed chest or a cedar closet wardrobe is a great way to store clothing for another season and keep them protected. These are just a few of many items at Hildreths to help you get started on organizing your closets.

Roman shades have been rising in popularity for years. They add color to the
room and warmth to any space. There are huge fabric choices for these shades
as well as many styles to work in any room. They can be sheer, have black out
linings for light control, have motorization options for hard to reach spaces, top
down-bottom up operation for greater light control options and add beauty and
visual interest. The flat roman shade requires the least amount of fabric and
shows large patterns beautifully. The Hobbled Roman adds a lovely softness
to a window. These shades will also help to insulate, specifically when they are
black out lined. Hildreth’s Department Store has talented designers that can help
you find the perfect fabric and style for your rooms. Please come see us at either
East Hampton or Southampton for a new look to your home!

Where to Sit

Other than our beds where we spend seven or eight hours of
sleep, chairs are the most used furniture in our homes. We have
them around the dining or kitchen table, at a desk, in the living
and family rooms and in the bedroom. Chairs come in an endless
number of styles, colors, fabrics and finishes. They can be the most
beautiful accent in your room. A bold fabric that might otherwise
overwhelm on a sofa can be just the most perfect accessory as a
chair. Conversely, an understated pair of chairs can add a sense of
calm comfort to a room.

Whatever your design aesthetic may be, at Hildreth’ s Dept. Store we
can help with your seating needs whether they be simple or grand
and if you have an old family piece or antique that needs new fabric
or a total redo, our workroom can do it for you.

This modular sectional is beautiful, don't you think?  It's 113"W X 72"Long as shown.
The wonderful feature with modular sectionals is each piece can be moved and
placed adjacent to any of the other pieces--or stand alone.
Because the pieces are mobile, you can re-arrange your rooms whenever you want--
if your having company, if you want to open the room and move all pieces out of the room.
Any way you like.
This modular comes with all toss pillows shown and is very reasonable for only $3,795
(Reg. $4,744).  Come To Hildreths and sit and see how comfy it is!

Decorating for the seasons

Now is a great time to shop for new living room upholstery. There’s a lot to consider when making that big purchase, lifestyle, longevity, budget, and especially being able to change your look with the seasons. Consider slipcovered upholstery for a good answer to it all. You can choose to use sunbrella fabric, which is resistant to fading and can be cleaned to look like new after a spill or just every day wear and tear. You may also consider purchasing a second set of slipcovers to make a change in your room from summer to winter OR consider the possibility of purchasing a second set of slipcovers down the road when your first set is starting to look tired which can essentially double the life of your sofa. Hildreth’s has a fantastic assortment of slipcovered upholstery and even better it’s on sale!! Come check out our line of Rowe slipcovered upholstery on sale through the end of this month at 35% off!!
