PASADENA, Calif., May 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports the number of people over 65 has tripled during the 20th Century and the number of seniors over 65 has jumped by a factor of 11, making up over 15% of the U.S. population as is growing exponentially! Senior Furnishings is the first online E-Commerce store to offer senior living furniture which you can customize for seniors who age in place at home as well as senior living communities, such as an assisted living facility, with a shopping cart checkout eliminating the need for sales people and showrooms which cause delays or limits availability.
You may be asking yourself, "What is senior living furniture"? Senior living furniture is made with specific dimensions; tend to have narrower armrest, more firm cushions, and high wear/stain resistant fabrics, all of which help keep seniors mobile and prevent falls. When a senior needs to sit, or stand from a sitting position, if the furniture is not constructed to specific dimensions with their limitations and safety in mind the seniors are more prone to accidents. Falls are most common among seniors as reported by the National Council on Aging and utilizing proper furniture for seniors goes hand in hand with these statistics. Furniture does not have to be ugly to be functional for seniors, and Senior Furnishings site proves that right by offering a complete line of furnishings to the most discriminating shopper.
What makes Senior Furnishings' site, seniorfurnishings.com unique, is that it offers almost complete customization of their furniture within their website, with a shopping cart checkout in addition to the artwork, and accessories they also offer. You can click on any fabric they offer and see how it looks on the furniture you have chosen, eliminating the guesswork of how the furniture will look when it arrives. With over 850 in-stock Crypton® treated fabrics offers from Kravet ® and Arc-Com ® to choose from, which provide the best possible moisture and accident protection, the selection of choices are endless. In addition, you can see high-res imagery of the fabric, lighting simulation, and complete specification, allowing the most discerning customer all the information they need to make an informed decision.
To complete their line of furniture offerings, Senior Furnishings also offers artwork, accessories, lighting, and botanicals. They have added other products to cater to smaller facilities throughout the United States who may not have access to such products, in addition to those who age in place at home, to products which have been selected to work together.
The Chief Operating Officer, Adam Dunn, stated that the response has been very welcoming and positive since launch this spring. "Helping seniors both who age in place and senior living facilities, by providing proper furniture and accessories is always a joy" states Adam. However, what excites Adam most is the 2017 release for the company to open in Western Europe and Australia simultaneously to meet the growing needs of seniors worldwide. As Adam stated, "Needless to say, we are all aging, and we all will soon have mobility issues, and we hope to be there to fulfill those needs in the coming years."
