Darvin® Furniture is Adding Options and Growing Demand for Power Motion Furnishings

Infinite settings, absolute comfort drive new sales, momentum for growth

Orland Park, IL, Oct.30, 2017 - With the escalating demand for power motion furnishings, Darvin® Furniture, Chicagoland's largest furniture and mattress store, has added more options and enhanced the showroom to reflect the booming demand. At the Orland Park showroom, 15400 La Grange Road, Orland Park, IL, customers will find more than 52 groups available to experience the comfort and convenience of these popular furnishings.

In this day and age, it should come as no surprise that innovation and technology are playing a growing role in the newest and most popular trends for furniture. One of the most interesting areas experiencing huge growth is in the power motion furnishings segment. From power reclining chairs and loveseats to full-size sofas, Darvin Furniture sees no signs of the trend slowing down.

Darvin Furniture Assistant Upholstery Buyer Karla Niemiec says power motion furniture is one of the fastest growing home furnishings categories. She’s seen the popularity of power motion rise over the last 10 years with Darvin customers, as it has slowly begun to catch up to traditional stationary furniture.

According to Niemiec, there’s no doubt as to why the power motion furniture, which offers custom settings for positions of the headrest, lumbar support and foot rests, is gaining in popularity. “It’s all about comfort,” she says. “These are very stylish, high-quality furnishings that allow you to find the perfect position that fits your body or your mood on a given day.”

Growing Demand

As with other fine furnishings at Darvin Furniture, power motion pieces can be ordered in virtually any style, featuring many different fabric options, including leather, cloth or vinyl upholstery. Today’s cutting edge designs do not even look like they offer power motion, Niemiec says, and in many cases, you can see legs on the sofa or chair – but it still offers power reclining and other optional positions.

“Power motion pieces are no longer the large, bulky furnishings of just a few years ago. The newest designs feature clean lines and contemporary styles,” says Niemiec. “These pieces are very quiet and operate at comfortable rates of speed to get you to the perfect setting.”

In addition to the extraordinary levels of comfort, Niemiec says the power motion pieces are equipped with many different convenience options, such as hidden console storage, push-button and joystick operation, built-in cup holders and USB connectivity.

Popular Features:

  • Infinite Seating Positions
  • Quiet Operation
  • Push-Button & Joystick Controls
  • Wide Selection of Upholstery Materials
  • USB Charging Ports
  • Traditional & Contemporary Styles
  • Convenient Storage Consoles
  • Built-In Cup Holders

The ability of modern power motion furnishings to deliver an infinite number of reclining and supportive positions iseasier than ever. One brand, Southern Motion, puts the power of relaxation in your hand with the I-Recline App, which can operate your power headrest, reclining position and two memory settings from anyiPhone or Android device.

“Comfort will always be popular,” says Niemiec. “And these pieces offer a perfect level of custom comfort to everyone.”
