McElheran's has an exciting opportunity for you to give homes to families in El Salvador this season!

At McElheran's, we believe a home is a special place for families. We also believe in giving back. Year after year, founder Jeff McElheran has travelled to El Salvador to help build homes through Shelter Canada. Jeff is inviting you to join him in supporting their work.

The goal? Build two complete homes for El Salvadorian families in need of shelter.

Here's how we'll build these homes together.

Last year, when McElheran's furnished a hotel, nine pieces had minor damage upon delivery. The pieces were quickly replaced, and we got to work repairing the originals.

We now have nine fully refurbished pieces to sell at a fraction of their regular cost, with 100% of the money going to Shelter Canada to build homes in El Salvador!

We all win. You get a beautiful piece for your home and the feeling of helping others. We clear out some inventory and make room for new pieces. Most importantly, two families in El Salvador get new homes!

Durnam Bedroom Chest

You can choose from two different pieces. First is a Durham chest that retails for $2899, now just $899 with four available. Second, a Durham custom makeup vanity valued at $3589 is now just $699. These vanities were custom built for the hotel so you will not find them anywhere else! Five are available. These are beautiful, solid wood, heirloom quality pieces that get the details right.

And remember, all of the proceeds of these sales will pay for two complete houses in El Salvador!

Jeff will go down in March, help build the houses and meet the families that will make them their home.

You can watch a video from Jeff's last trip here and experience the impact your purchase will have.

Visit us in store to view these pieces today. You can also directly donate to Jeff McElheran's Heartland Alliance Shelter Canada team page at https://www.sheltercanada.ca/heartland-alliance-1

In this, the season of charity, we hope you'll help us make a difference in the lives of El Salvadorian families even as you prepare to gather with your own.

Will you join us?

Fabric - The Final Difference Between a $1000 and a $4000 Sofa

We’ve made it to the fourth and final post in our blog series on the differences between a $1000 sofa and a $4000 sofa. You’ve learned how features of the frame, suspension and seat and back cushions can make a huge difference in the quality and price of the sofa you are buying. Today we’ll finish our series with the finishing layer of a sofa; the fabric. You might assume that fabric is less of a cost factor than all these other components we’ve discussed, but like those components that all depends on what fabric we are talking about. You see, when a typical living room sofa is being upholstered, the manufacturer will use as little as 15 or as much as 30 yards of fabric depending on the overall size of the sofa. How much the fabric on a sofa costs comes down to the quantity required and the qualities of the fabric you choose.
