    by Patty G.

    This past weekend, Belfort Furniture participated in the Winter Home and Remodeling show at the Dulles Expo Center.  Belfort was invited to furnish the Show’s Smart House and the inspiration was “Farmhouse Fresh”.  We were so inspired with this lifestyle, that we started our search for items from The Belfort Furniture Clearance Center  to create a Farmhouse Chic living area for this weeks Blog Post.

Our sales staff recently went through a training and team exercise to teach them how to help guide customers in their fabric selections. Belfort Furniture’s Upholstery Buyer teaches the art of fabric selection through choosing pillow fabrics first. 1.  Choose a Print that ‘Speaks to You’ for a pillow fabric 2.  Build off of your color palette from your first fabric choice.
