It is again that time of year for Goettlers of Dublin Friends + Family (F+F) Sale. We run this major event throughout the last part of September…right up to the Thanksgiving Long Weekend.
Why is the Friends + Family Sale such a favorite? Goettlers of Dublin is in their 66th year of continuous business. The late George Goettler started in a Red + White Grocery Store in the early 1950’s.
He sold not only foodstuffs, but work wear, footwear, and furniture. Samsonite card tables and chairs, La-Z-boy recliners,and Beautyrest mattresses were his core line-up. He always believed in selling excellent quality at a discounted price. Those sentiments are the foundation of the Company today.
On a major furniture sale like this, customers are offered price-drops on all items from both Goettlers of Dublin AND Chesterfield Warehouse Limited. Customized furniture pieces are a big part of our business….and the price-drop is offered on all special orders.
Fantastic brand names such as La-Z-boy, Brentwood Classics, Decor-Rest, Superstyle, LeatherCraft, Simmons Hideabed, Capel Rugs, Magnussen, Durham, Canadel, Universal, Ashley Furniture, Benchcraft, Dublin House, Null, Uttermost, Howard Miller, Palliser, Rowe, Trendline, and Stylus. The F+F is a great event here at Goettlers of Dublin….we hope to see you during this Sale.
It has been the many Friends and Family of OUR family, that has kept us in business for all these years here in Dublin. Goettlers of Dublin appreciates the patronage of ALL our customers. Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Goettlers of Dublin / Chesterfield Warehouse Limited.

Steve and I most recently spent the past week travelling across the USA to spend time in Los Angeles for the LA Design Show hosted by Dwell Magazine at the LA Convention Centre. Many of you who follow us on facebook, twitter and Instagram have watched our adventure and discoveries while at the show. Some of you may wonder why we would travel so far for a design show....well simply because we pride ourselves as a company on always following and being aware of what forward trends are occurring in other markets. We look at design shows across North America and overseas to know what is trending our way not just in furniture, but also colour, building architecture, kitchen trends as well as electronic integration in residential use to name a few. We enjoy it; for us it is exciting.
Our application of what we see trending is what you see in our 30,000 square foot showroom in upholstery styles and fabrics, dining and bedroom categories,
area rugs, mattress technology right down to the details of lamps and prints.
area rugs, mattress technology right down to the details of lamps and prints.
One of the most interesting trends we are watching at the moment is the tiny home movement. In a small footprint of approximately 700 square feet people are downsizing from large 2400 square foot houses to small concept houses.
Glamping was another trend that caught my eye.
Green trends are always a topic at design shows and I loved the wooden hand made bicycles, and the artisan lighting.
We enjoyed the time we spent observing and speaking with new vendors in LA. We'll keep you tuned on the new trends we see globally. Let us know what trend you've seen that you are loving! Stay connected with our social media platforms to see what we're loving in design.

Goettlers of Dublin is a Canadian company...and we are thrilled to be part of the #Canada150 celebration. Congratulations Canada!
For many years, #goettlersofdublin has merchandised and sold #designedandmadeincanada furniture, accessories and mattresses. We are most fortunate to have so many well designed and well built Canadian lines to show our customers. Lines such as Brentwood Classics, Leathercraft, Superstyle, Future Chair, Decor Rest, Northland Art, Trendline, Stylus, Palliser, Simmons Hideabed, Canadel, Durham, Beautyrest, Trica, Springwater Woodcraft, Julien Beaudoin and many others.
These furniture collections are all showcased in our heritage building, here in the Village of Dublin. Our building dates back to this country's Confederation era, circa 1867.
We are slowly and carefully restoring sections of the plant, exploiting the vernacular architecture of the day. This is a very exciting process... and has been an ongoing project for many years.
Our business started as a "RED and White" grocery store in the early 1950's by the late George Goettler. It is now owned by Stephen Goettler, and managed by his wife, Vivi Jensen Goettler, and son, George Goettler.
We are thrilled to announce our 65th year in business. We owe so much of this success to the families that have supported us from the grocery era, right through to the current furniture era. To all of our customers, past and present, a very warm and heart felt "Thank you".
As many of you know, #goettlersofdublin exploits holiday weekends for major sale events. This Canada Day weekend, we are not going to disappoint. We will be running our "CANADA150=$AVING$ sale ALL this Canada Day weekend. We will be offering substantial PRICE DROPS on #designedandmadeincanada.....and the savings reach up to 50%.
We will be OPEN all weekend....refreshments/music/hospitality will never be in short supply.

Furniture trends tend to shift more slowly than things like colors, decor, and more. But, they casually and effectively do change over the years. While some pieces will remain timeless, others will eventually fall out of fashion. Even still, some will fall away and come back. So, how can you stay on trend with your own home furniture? Know what to look for in upcoming trends, and think about how they’ll work for your home in the long run.
In the next year or so, there are several upcoming trends to look out for. One of the most prominent will be a sort of ‘glamourous’ feel to things. People want to feel as though they’re surrounded in luxury. Look for high-end design at affordable prices when furniture starts to follow this trend. Metallics, and sleek black modernism will also come into play. This tends to go hand in hand with the idea of luxury. Many people believe that things like clean lines and darker colors add a sense of minimalistic luxury to any home.
Also on trend in the next year is a style that has continued to grow in recent years, and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon: Shabby chic. The rustic, distressed, farmhouse way of decorating your home has blossomed in popularity over the past few years, and furniture manufacturers are taking notice. Look for more and more brand new furniture to have a distressed or weathered look. It can provide a fine balance between something new having a more homey, comfortable touch. If you’re not ready to fully embrace the distressed trend, a few rustic accent pieces can work well in almost any room.
While these upcoming trends couldn’t be more opposite, they both are likely to show an increase in popularity over the upcoming year or two. Remember, your style and taste should reflect your personality, and the feeling you want people to have when they walk into your home.

This year has said its goodbyes to earthy beiges and welcomes pure drama with open arms. Beautiful deep jewel tones such as emerald green, sapphire blue, amethyst and some pastel colors have emerged to bring life and richness in your home. By layering the colors and textures, a once cold space will definitely transform into a warm one, with just a few design elements! Your jewel tones do not necessarily have to match. So long as they are of a similar visual weight, then they will be visually harmonious. Let’s take a look at how we can incorporate jewel tones into your home, besides on your walls or window coverings.
The “Clarinda” accent chair is the perfect blend between a classic slipper chair and a traditional wingback chair. This beautiful modern design features tapered legs and clean lines, along with a subtle tufting for added flair. While the deep seat and winged back offer comfort, this accent chair’s gorgeous sapphire blue color will surely make a statement in your room.
Are you looking for a piece that can add a lot of drama in your space? Then why not consider a jewel-toned sofa? The rich vibrant color of the “Sagen-Teal” sofa will awaken a certain regal vibe in your living room. You will feel like royalty when you have a seat on the plush cushions and bold shape of this contemporary design.
Turn up the warmth in your space with a beautiful burgundy “Ashton” throw. The woven herringbone pattern, along with the thick fringe will add visual texture to a bed, sofa or chair! In fact, since the throw has so much personality, it would be best to pair it with shades of gray as a backdrop.
As you can see, vibrant colors are here to stay. Jewels tones are not only meant to be worn! Dress your home in the colors of royalty, so that you feel a certain distinction right within your own space.

Faux-fur on your furniture
The winter is a season that brings out our primal instincts and leads us to preserve ourselves from the wretched bitter cold. So how exactly do we manage to do so in harsh weather conditions? We keep warm of course! One way of putting this into practice is by layering. In fact, the same concept is true for the home. You may find yourself pulling out extra rugs for layering, or your winter throw to keep you and your loved ones warm, while you spend time together in the family room. In 2017, these elements have made a comeback in the form of trendy ultra-soft and cozy furniture. Furry furniture is making its appearance either way, so why not embrace its fuzzy return?
The faux-fur throw:
One way that faux-fur has made its comeback is with the throw. The trend does not just imply neatly folding a fuzzy throw and placing it in a corner. Better yet, it serves as a tool to embellish your furniture! The beautiful texture will create a pop of aesthetic to your living room’s sofa or chair that’s reminiscent of nature’s beauty. Cover up your seating with the throw and you’ll have a new look in no time!
The faux-fur pouf:
Another way to give into your animal instinct is to add a luxurious faux-fur pouf to your home. Whether it is in your living room, bedroom or entrance, this piece will surely bring warmth to your space. Just see for yourself. Lay your feet on this fuzzy pouf and feel the incredibly soft and plush texture beneath your skin. This piece is truly a dream!
