Bassett Furniture. Bassett furniture is another behemoth of a brand, operating more than 50 company-owned retail stores, selling in nearly every local furniture store, and climbing the ranks of most online retailers. Bassett is no stranger to the furniture market, and has been in operation for more than 100 years! Bassett is a publicly-traded company (NASDAQ:BSET) and therefore offers very detailed reports of their overall sales figures. In the fourth quarter of 2016 alone, Bassett furniture saw $113 million in sales, which was slightly down from 2015. With numbers like these, it's clear that Bassett is able to put some serious resources behind their delivery of high-quality, highly customization furniture. In the late 1990's, Bassett began seeing an emerging trend of companies such as Rooms to Go and other large-chain furniture retailers. Until this time, most of the furniture in the United States were sold through local 'mom and pop' type stores, which offered a really personal touch. Personality often goes to the wind when tremendous discounts are involved—and Bassett spotted the writing on the wall. With this realization in mind ,they began opening their own retail stores across the country, which today account for more than half of their overall sales.

The daybed was the most popular and common kind of sofa in the 17th century. Especially into the 19th century the sofa, couch, or lounge bed was often thought of as a ladies lounging seat. However, reverting back further in history, men would often lounge as they ate or relaxed, and the women would stand or sit in chairs. As a matter of fact, it was not until the industrial era that sofas began to appear eventually in the homes of more and more common people. Soon it became so that virtually everyone, singles, couples, and / or whole families, would acquire at least one sofa for their home.
Probably more money is spent on this room than in any other place in the house since it tends to be larger, provide various spaces, can offer many uses and provides a place for entertaining. A coffee table, two end tables, a large couch, and love seat can make up a set for living room furniture. Some people wish to add a couple of matching chairs or recliners, a desk, and perhaps a couple of plant stands for decorative purposes.
