Saugerties Furniture Mart – Smith Brothers of Berne Livingroom Furniture Review

In over 68 years we have never done business with a company that can turn out stylish bench-made furniture as quickly and as consistently as Smith Brothers of Berne.  We have over 30 models of Smith Brother’s sofas on our floor and custom orders are delivered within 35 days in both fabric or 100% leather.  Smith Brothers builds their furniture from the start to last for years  in your home.  They use solid maple frames that are doweled and glued, high quality coil spring support systems and attention to detail in the way they upholster the furniture that make for a well made piece of living room furniture.   The best feedback we hear from customers is how well the Qualux Ultra 2.5lb density cushions hold up.  Smith Bros. of Berne uses Qualux Ultra because it allows for a comfortable seat that will remain durable and resilient for years to come.  Few companies use 2.5lb foam due to cost, Smith feels it’s the most important part of the sofa.  Overall we rate Smith Brothers of Berne furniture 5 stars+ for the quality and integrity of their furniture.

Saugerties Furniture Mart – Quality Furniture is the original Eco-Friendly Furniture!

It seems like I hear another story about another piece of furniture that was built of substandard quality or was inappropriate for a consumers needs that has to be trashed – and it makes me sad.  Disposable furniture is everywhere today.  What can seem like a great deal can quickly deteriorate into a living room annoyance!    All this cheap, disposable, shoddy furniture ends up in our landfills.  Quality furniture like what we sell at Saugerties Furniture Mart will last longer and very often, from customer feedback, is passed on to another generation for continued use.    Quality American Made Furniture is the original Eco-Friendly furniture.   Better quality furniture has wood frames vs. composite chip board and steel springs instead of plastic webbing etc. You may think quality = more $$$, but you’re wrong!  Buying right once is always less expensive than buying twice!   Here’s some advice when shopping for furniture.   Be a smart shopper ask what’s inside, how its made, & where its made so you don’t end up with a wobbly uncomfortable piece of furniture.  At  Saugerties Furniture Mart we stick to a “family standard” above the rest when selecting furniture and vendors to offer to our customers.  We’d love to you show you what’s inside and help you pick the right furnishings for your home.    You’ll be amazed at how much quality you can get for your $  at Saugerties Furniture Mart. Saugerties Furniture Mart is open 7 days a week to help YOU!  No pressure, just knowledgeable help, the kind only a multi-generational family owned store can provide. Check out the constructions of our Smith Bros. of Berne sofas below!  Just one quality USA Made brand we offer.


Frame Construction

  • Reinforced Joints

    All high-stress joints are double-dowelled, glued, screwed, and reinforced with solid maple corner blocks, making them extremely durable.

  • Built-in Legs

    Legs are built directly into frames, not attached separately as a final step.

  • Hand-made Quality

    All frames are assembled by hand by skilled experts.

  • Hardwood Maple

    All Smith Brothers frames are built from the finest kiln-dried maple hardwoods.

  • In-house Mill Room

    Our lumber is cut and our frames are assembled by our own experienced craftsmen at our facilities in Berne. We do not outsource our framing as many furniture manufacturers do.

  • Strong Base Rails

    The critical, load-bearing front and back rails are made of 1 1/4″ solid maple lumber for superior strength and to eliminate warping in the frame.

  • Lifetime Warranty

    We offer a lifetime warranty on every frame, guaranteed against warping or breakage.

Spring Units

  • Coil Spring Units

    Under every seat cushion is a pre-engineered, heavy-gauge coil spring unit. These units are the best available in the industry and ensure rugged durability for many years.

  • Bent-Up Front Edges

    The front edges on most of our spring units are elevated and flexible, providing soft seating even at the very end of the seat, and increasing the wearability of this high-stress area.

  • Secured by Hand

    Coil spring units are positioned by hand to the frame using high-quality suspension springs.

  • Firmer Outer Coils

    The coils along the edges of our spring units are made of a thicker wire than the coils in the center, so the seat is firmer on the outside for more support.

  • Individual Support

    Coil spring units are individually supported in each position so each person sits independently.

  • Silent Operation

    Our coil spring connections are insulated with protective coating to eliminate noise as you sit and get out of the seat.

  • Lifetime Warranty

    We offer a lifetime warranty on every seat spring unit against breakage and loss of resiliency.

Foam and Padding

  • Highest Quality Foam

    Our seating foam cores are the highest quality available to the furniture industry.

  • Fiber-Wrapped

    We wrap all seat cushions individually in a layer of polyester fiber for perfect contour and softness.

  • Well-Padded Arms

    We pad each arm with foam, cotton, and fiber for maximum comfort and a beautiful, finished look.

  • Chambered Backs

    Back cushion fiber is blown into chambered bags to minimize settling and sagging over time.

  • Firmness Options

    We offer three different foam core firmness levels so you can find the seat that matches your needs.

  • Quality Testing

    Foam cores we receive from our vendors are put through specialized testing to confirm that they are consistent to our exacting standards.

  • Lifetime Warranty

    We offer a lifetime warranty on all seat foam cores against flattening or loss of resiliency.

Motion Furniture

  • Hardwood Frames

    Like our stationary furniture, we use the finest hardwood maple for our motion frames, and reinforce all high-stress joints with double dowels, screws, glue, and corner blocks.

  • Triangle Brackets

    As an added measure of support in the high-stress areas of our pressback recliners, we use heavy duty triangle metal brackets in the joint corners.

  • Exclusive Arm Supports

    We designed our own exclusive arm support system to reduce the arm wobble that is common to other manufacturers’ recliners.

  • Coil Spring Seat Units

    We use coil spring seating units—an uncommon feature is most motion furniture.

  • No-Sag® Back Springs

    Where most manufacturers use a woven fabric to support the backs, we use No-Sag® back springs in most pieces.

The #1 Canadian furniture manufacturer is now at Saugerties Furniture Mart.    When I shop for a new line I look for style, quality and attention to detail because I know my customers come to Saugerties Furniture for just that.   Decor-Rest has been on my radar for a little while as more and more Made in USA manufacturers call it quits or downgrade their quality below our strict standards.  Decor-Rest makes well-made fashionable furniture that’s affordable for any home.

Why I chose Decor-Rest (and why you should too)

  • Family Owned and Operated
  • Air-Dried Solid Maple or Birch Frames
  • Heavy Guage Spring System w/ extra lateral support
  • Self-decking – seat deck covered in matching upholstery
  • Edge Roll – keeps your cushions from popping out
  • VALUE – custom made sofas for the same price as stock items in a big box store

Contemporary Furniture

Contemporary furniture is the fastest growing segment of furniture today.  The clean lines of contemporary furniture can really modernize any room setting and still coordinate with older classics.  I personally like track arm sofas for their clean lines like the Dakota sofa from Rowe Furniture.   The Dakota sofa from Rowe Furniture is an excellent combination of comfort and style. This is a contemporary sofa you can melt into and get lost in a good book or game on TV.  An extra deep frame and cozy down cushions make this a nice choice for family rooms or media rooms.  Rowe makes durable furniture that’s comfortable and useable.  Choose from over 500 fabrics to meet your design needs.  Stop by Saugerties Furniture to see all our contemporary furniture and many other styles.
