If you know anything about National Furniture Liquidators, it’s that we have quality furniture at quality prices. We believe furniture shouldn’t have to cost a fortune, but that got us wondering—what is the most expensive furniture you can by? Well, we found some and let’s just say…you may be just as shocked at these prices as we are
1) Pininfarina’s Aresline Xten Office Chair – $1.5 million
Pininfarina is the design company behind some of Ferrari’s most jaw dropping cars. But one day, for whatever reason, they decided they’d try their hand at an office chair. But for $1.5 million, we probably wouldn’t even think about sitting in it.
2) The Badminton Chest – $36.7 million
Officially the most expensive furniture in the world, the Badminton Chest was designed by thirty different people and took 6 years to be fully built. The craftmanship is top-tier and includes some of the finest precious stones in the world. All for the low, low price of nearly $37 million. We’d call that a bargain!
3) Solid Gold Stool – $1.3 million
Stools can be uncomfortable after long periods of sitting, but would solid gold make it feel better? Probably not, but sitting on that much money has to feel pretty good, we’d imagine.
4) Ruijssenaars Magnetic Floating Bed – $1.6 million
So we all had dreams we were floating, but what if you were floating while dreaming? Architect Janjaap Rujissenaar thought it would be a great idea, and built a bed that can float 40 cm off the ground and stay afloat under 900 kg of weight. That’s nearly a ton! You’ll just need about 67 Toyota Camry’s worth of money to afford it.

We at National Furniture Liquidators not only want you to get high-quality furniture from us, but also maintain it for years to come. That’s why we thought we’d go over the basics of furniture care, so life doesn’t take too much of a toll on your beautiful furniture.
Heat = Damage
Heat is one of the most common causes of furniture damage. Spilling hot beverages, forgetting about hot mugs and irons, and other forms of heat can warp or melt the furniture that it’s on, which makes the furniture deformed and less useful. Never put extremely hot items on your furniture, because it can be the quickest way to turn your beautiful furniture into a nightmare.
Mold and Mildew
Just like heat, excess water can also be a huge problem for your furniture, especially if it is wooden. Water, if left unchecked, can breed fungi and mold onto your furniture, which looks terrible and can be hazardous to your own health. To get rid of fungi or mold, make sure the room the furniture is in is as dry as possible. A humid room will activate and accelerate mold spores, but once the room is dry, they become dormant. Making the room very cold will also make the spores dormant, and then the mold can be safely removed. Generally, you want your furniture in a cool, dry area to have the best results. If your furniture is leather, be sure to wipe up water as soon as it is spilled; otherwise, it can discolor the leather and it will be an eyesore.
Wax On, Wax Off
The same way you’d give your care or your body regular maintenance, your furniture needs regular maintenance too. We recommend waxing your furniture once a year, to rejuvenate it from the use that it has to undergo throughout the year. Also, it’s important to regularly flip or rotate your furniture. This is because sunlight can also slowly make colors fade, so you’ll want to move your furniture periodically so any fading or discoloration over time is even on your furniture.
Move With Care
When moving your furniture around (especially heavy furniture), make sure you don’t move it incorrectly and torque the joints and screws in the process. This can significantly weaken the integrity of your furniture, and increase the chances of it breaking and needing professional repair or downright replacement. Ask for help if you need to move furniture, be it for a remodel or just for spring cleaning.

If your living room lives up to its name, then that is where everyone congregates when they are in your home. That makes it so that furniture years are similar to dog years. In fact, according to a survey of prospective furniture buyers, the average life expectancy for a good-quality sofa is just under eight years. This is down from just over 12 in 1996 and just over 14 in 1985. If you are not sure, there are a number of telltale signs that can clue you in.
When to get new living room furniture
Everyone has that older, aging relative that moans, groans, and creaks with every movement. If yours is your sofa, then it is probably time to start looking for new living room furniture. The same holds true if your sofa causes you to make those same noises because you sink so far in, you have a hard time getting up. Then, when you do finally make it to a standing position, you need to head to the chiropractor for an adjustment. Noises from what is being sat on, or those doing the sitting are definite signs that it is time for new living room furniture.
Wear and tear and other signs you need new living room furniture
Whether you are looking to entertain guests or just sit, relax, and watch TV, if you are currently avoiding your living room, it’s probably time for new furniture. Regardless if it is because the colors of the couch have faded to the point where you are not sure what the original was or if it because wear has caused tears, rips, and spills, you should look into buying new living room furniture. The longer you have your couch, the more likely it is that the fabric will become flimsy and vulnerable to tearing. On top of that, living room furniture can also be damaged due to spills and other accidents. Therefore, if you find yourself constantly mending your sofa, it is probably time to replace it with a new one. The same holds true if you just do not like your living room furniture anymore or if it no longer goes with the style you have in the rest of your home. It may be old, outdated, and in need of replacement.

Picking out new dining room furniture can be a stressful venture. However, it can also be an exciting one if you have all of the right information. Here at National Furniture Liquidators, we want all of our El Paso customers to find the right furniture for their home. Something that our customers often stress about is how to choose the perfect height for their dining room furniture. Hopefully the following tips will make your dining room furniture shopping experience a lot less stressful and a lot more fun.
Dining Room Furniture for a Breakfast Nook
If you’re looking into dining room furniture that isn’t too formal and that is ideal for everyday eating, tall furniture is the way to go. A taller set of dining room furniture gives the illusion of more space. Informal dining areas, such as a breakfast nook in the kitchen, are often smaller spaces. The elevated height of dining room furniture creates more space because it contrasts the counter top level. If the furniture sits just above the level of the counter top, it feels like there is more space since the furniture is set apart. We have a variety of tall tables and bar stools at National Furniture Liquidators that would go nicely in a small informal dining area.
When shopping for a formal set of dining room furniture, it’s often the case that customers opt for shorter, longer tables. Formal dining rooms are often for entertaining guests. Guests can range in age and size themselves. Whether you’re entertaining a small child or an elderly relative, it’s important not to exclude anyone. This makes a shorter table that is easily accessible by all the best choice. The height of the table also enables people to see how large the table actually is. Longer tables are usually desired for formal dining rooms in order to seat a good number of people. The vastness and length of a table that can be noticed by guests adds a sense of elegance to a room. We have plenty of dining room furniture sets for you to choose from.
Any furniture purchase can be stressful when you’re not too sure what you want or what you should buy. Here at National Furniture Liquidators in El Paso, we’d be happy to assist you in your furniture-buying venture.

If your mattress is starting to make creaks and other noises, it may be time for a replacement. This can be a difficult decision, especially when you have to decide between a soft or firm mattress. There is no such thing as better or worse when comes to mattresses. Ultimately, you want to choose the mattress that you need and can find easily in El Paso. At National Furniture Liquidators, we’ve made a quick guide choosing between soft or firm mattresses.
When to Shop for Soft Mattresses
If you are somebody who has lower back problems, then a soft mattress may be your best bet. A soft mattress will adjust your body according to weight. This will relieve pressure throughout your body, as well as lend support to key body parts. This mattress is also great if you sleep on your side as it will balance out the natural curves of your body. Keep in mind, soft mattresses can end up being uncomfortable if you are used to a firm bed with a lot of support.
When is a Firm Mattress the Best Choice?
A firm mattress benefits a different group of people. The firm mattress helps put the spine in a neutral, more straight position. This will prevent your lower back from dropping low, which allows you to inhale better throughout the night. A firm mattress will also direct pressure to the bones instead of the muscles. As a result, this improves blood circulation throughout the night. Due to their rigidity, a firm mattress will also add to the support a body and leg pillow provides.
Find the Mattress Selection You Want
It’s worth noting that there are varying degrees of firm and soft mattresses. There is also a medium-firm mattress which is best for healthy individuals as they get the best of both worlds. Deciding on a mattress can be a daunting decision, but it doesn’t have to be. If you are in the El Paso area, feel free stop by National Furniture Liquidators and try out our mattress selections. Lay on it for as long as you like before deciding. Regardless of what mattress you prefer, we are confident that we have the right one for you.

When you are decorating your home, your living room is an important part of bringing your home together. After all, your living room is where your family gathers, where you entertain and otherwise relax. El Paso decor usually favors Southwest styles or neutral colors to take advantage of the beautiful natural light our city basks in. Sometimes, though, we realize that there may be something more to make your decor really pop. At National Furniture Liquidators, we know that accent rugs can really bring your living room together.
What Kind of Living Room Furniture do You Have?
Choosing an accent rug really starts out when you consider the type of living room furniture you have or plan to have. Styles can range from modern furniture to traditional, to even retro chic or urban glam. We all have ways of making styles are own. Accent rugs can bring together whatever style you have. Or, a well chosen rug can simply refresh your living room’s look in an affordable way.
Size Definitely Matters
Here’s another important consideration- the size of your living room, your furniture, and the rug itself. You want to make sure that the rug you choose will be the appropriate size. Take the time to measure the dimensions of your living room as well as your furniture’s size. Otherwise, the rug you choose can risk making your living room look smaller or make your furniture look over-sized.
Carefully looking at the patterns and textures in the living room furniture you have should dictate the color of rugs that you pick out. This is one area where the rug can actually further enhance the color schemes. However, you also want to be sure that the patterns or colors don’t clash. Neutral decor with no patterns will always benefit from a good bold color. However, patterns are a bit trickier to implement into your decor, so make sure the rug you choose won’t clash with what you have.
