Finding Furniture for Football Season: All You Need to Know

Finding Furniture for Football Season: All You Need to Know

It's football season, which means it's time to start thinking about what furniture you need for the big game. If you're tired of sitting on the couch or worrying about your TV being knocked over by kids that think they're playing in the NFL, then there are plenty of options that will make your home feel like a sports bar! We have TV stands and entertainment consoles that can store all of your electronics and support that fantastic flat-screen TV. We also offer sectionals, so everyone has their own seat. Plus, our recliners are perfect for putting up your feet while you watch the game!

Here are some of our furniture options, that may be a great fit for you and your fellow football fans:


TV Stands and Entertainment Centers

You can’t watch the football game without a television, and you can’t have a television without something to put it on (or above if your television is mounted). TV stands and entertainment centers go beyond supporting the weight of your flat-screen TV. These furniture pieces can also store all your components, cables, and remotes so everything is within reach. There are many shelves to choose from with the perfect depth for your sound system, or the kids’ videogames, as well as drawers that give you a place to keep remote controls. You’ll know where they are when it’s time for a commercial break!

If everyone wants their own spot at your football party, then sectionals just make sense—especially if you’re watching the game with a large family or a rowdy group of friends. Sectionals come in different shapes and sizes depending on how much space you have available. For example, there are L-shaped sectionals, U-shaped sectionals, and even sectionals that separate into two large pieces. We also offer customizations, for our sofas and sectionals. Choose between different colors or fabric, and we will do our best to deliver. We even have reclining sectionals with cup holders, so everyone’s drink stays close by without having to get up from their seat.

If comfort is key, then recliners might be the best furniture options for you during football season. These chairs come in different variations such as swivel, lift, manual, or automatic models that can easily accommodate any size person with a simple pull of a handle. Recliners gives everyone at your party more space on the sofa or sectional that they can use for their feet, drinks, or snacks while they cheer on their favorite team! These furniture pieces not only create extra room but also give people a place to kick back and relax so there is no need for anyone to leave in between plays. Recliners also come in a variety of colors and designs that will fit any style preference.

Cocktail and Coffee Tables

Cocktail and coffee tables are furniture pieces that keep everyone's game day beverages close by. These furniture options come in many shapes and sizes (round, square, rectangle) so you can fit them around your seating arrangement perfectly! They also usually have storage cabinets underneath where you can place blankets or board games until it’s time for the halftime show. Our tabletops have tempered glass or wood finishes to give a sleek look for football season- no matter how messy the snacks might get. Just don’t forget to put down some coasters!

Ottomans and Footstools

While huge furniture pieces might not work for small spaces, ottomans, and footstools pair well with any seating arrangement to give everyone a place to put their feet up after chowing down on some buffalo chicken dip. They also provide extra storage space that you can use as a side table or even as another seat if it comes down to it. We offer ottomans and footstools with many different designs to fit your furniture arrangements. Whether you want a tufted leather footstool or a bench style ottoman with storage underneath, we have furniture options that will make your viewing experience even better.

So, whether you’re hosting the game at your house or heading over to a friend's, furniture really is what makes all the difference. The Furniture Mall of Texas and Austin’s Couch Potatoes will help you turn any space into an inviting place for everyone to gather and enjoy each other's company during football season.
