Whether you fully know it now or not, and it may have already happened, someday you will decide you have a “favorite chair” in your home.   The favorite chair is a very special place.  It provides comfort like no other item of furniture can.  It is a safe place where the worries of the world seem to fade.  The favorite chair has a way of relaxing your body and making you feel more like “you” again.  This great chair has the effect of transforming you into your rightful place as a royal.

What?  You don’t currently have a favorite chair in your home?   Ennis is here to help you with that.  Read on:

The Classic Recliner:

The absolute archetype of the “favorite chair” in any home is the classic recliner.  The recliner makes the undeniable statement- “Welcome home, sit back, it is time to relax.”  The Donovan Recliner by Thomasville is especially inviting with its inviting pillow plush seat cushion and semi-attached back cushion.  Whether you select leather or choose from a multitude of cloth draping options, you will find this Thomasville recliner to be of exceptional quality, durability, and comfort.

The Claudette Chair

Imagine a space in your home where you can cuddle up with a good book, warm cookies, and enjoy a quiet solitude that renews the soul.    You’ve very likely just imagined the Claudette Chair by Drexel.   Soft, wide cushions and with a matching ottoman; lean back, pick your feet up (sigh)– that’s Claudette and she will spoil you!

Living Room Rocker

Who is not enchanted in some way by a rocking chair?   Rocking chairs bring to us a gentle cadence of peace, love, and for some of us … fun!    When you combine all of that into a Stickley rocking chair, you know you have the best in craftsmanship and comfort to rock-a-way your day’s cares & obligtations.    This Living Room Rocker by Stickley boasts a  generous seating area that is almost a yard wide and 41” deep.  This rocker’s arched front stretcher compliments the chair’s wide and graceful canted arms.  Of course, because it is Stickley, you know the craftsmanship is of the highest order and that makes this a favorite chair that can even be passed from generation to generation.

Given that your chair is such an important place to aspire to and to spend time in, we thought we would present some of our favorite chairs in the hopes you may find one that fits you perfectly.

If you don’t see your favorite chair in this post, don’t’ worry.  The professional home designers at Ennis Fine Furniture literally have hundreds of favorite chairs to show you and are experts in the art of favorite chair selection. Ennis professional design services are complimentary to all Ennis Fine Furniture Customers.   Your home’s special seating-getaway place awaits!

Need Design Inspiration For Autumn? Look To Nature And Ennis!

Just as Spring-time is when the Earth shakes off the monochromatic cloak of Winter to don a fresh color palette of myriad colors, autumn is the season where mother nature again changes wardrobe in a burst of new colors!  autumn is truly nature’s grand encore.

This season is arguably the most colorful time of year.  There is something more vivid in the blue of the sky, the whites of the clouds, and of course, the myriad of colors displayed in all the foliage around us.

You have to look no further than the colors, textures, and boldness of natures’ autumn to gain inspired insight into how you may prepare you home for this beautiful Fall season.

Color- BLUE

While hues of orange, golds, and reds are immediately identifiable with fall, we propose you consider blue.  Yes, blue.  Think about it.  The sky is never so blue as it is in the crisp air of Fall.   So we recommend you bring some of that beautiful Fall sky into your main living space (in a major way!) with this stunning sofa by Drexel.   Drexel calls this the Chubby sofa because of the spacious comfort it provides.  Want to add an even deeper hue of blue?  Then check out the matching Chubby chair by Drexel.  Of course, Drexel provides you with a host of fabrics and textures to drape your Chubby sofa with, but we love and recommend this plush, velvety blue covering and we know you will love it also.


First- we have to ask the obvious question.  When aren’t beautiful woodgrains in style?  Of course, they are always in style, but we say there is a special connection with fall because of their essential relationship with trees and rich textures!

As an ode to this wonderful season, we present to you this gorgeous Thomasville Bibbiano Sideboard  cabinet as a breathtaking addition to your autumn-time home.   This Thomasville piece boasts beautiful, exotic wood inlays as well as a Dark Emperador marble top.  This sideboard works well in either your living room or dining room.  Imagine your favorite fall wine variety decanted and ready for you and your friends as you celebrate the turning of the season!


As autumn is mother nature’s most bold of seasons, we believe you should also be bold in your home furnishing choices and décor.  Mix it up; boldly move outside your comfort zone!

Mash it up this fall!  A splendid (and fashionable) mash-up of wood grains and industrial metals in a bold, French style trunk comes to us from Hooker Furniture.   The Arabella Trunk is, of course, functional as a storage trunk (think blankets and throws), but we believe its sophisticated French elements and glamorous touches make it perfect as a cocktail table, too.

Accessorize this autumn!  Bring the beauty of fall to life in your home with quality wall art.  Nothing makes a seasonal statement this time of year like the evocative imagery of autumn leaves.  Uttermost bronze leaves are actually formed from real leaves and combines premium quality materials, like bronze and gold leaf veining.   In addition to hanging them on your wall, these sculpted leaves are engineered with small pedestals that also make them a great table-top display no matter the time of year.

Fall is one of our favorite times at Ennis Fine Furniture because there are so many design inspirations derived from this season.  Are you interested in additional design inspiration?  We welcome your inquiry!   Professional design services is complimentary to all Ennis Fine Furniture customers.
