For the last several years Habegger Furniture, partnering with Stressless, has been able to be a part of fabulous promotion that has quickly become our favorite throughout the year. Stressless by Ekornes gives us a chance to offer a great discount on their product when a donation is made to a charity of our choice. We have selected the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission as our “Charity of Choice”.
The Rescue Mission, founded in 1903, is a faith-based, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, providing restorative care to men, women and children experiencing a homeless crisis. Our organization serves Fort Wayne, Allen County and its nine surrounding counties. The Mission is comprised of four ministries, or houses, that function as communities of compassion. http://therescuemission.net/
Mission Statement of The Rescue Mission…
“To provide, through the power of Jesus Christ, a home for the homeless, food for the hungry, and hope for their future.”
Make a comfortable donation and get absolute comfort in return. Habegger Furniture in turn matches ALL contributions made. Its a great way for us all to give back this holiday season.
What makes our Stressless Recliners so unique? It’s the comfort offered by an unparalleled system of proper ergonomic and orthopedic support, which has earned the endorsement of the American Chiropractic Association. These recliners are worth testing out.
Stop in at either Habegger Furniture location Now through January 18, 2016 to help those who are less fortunate.
Furnishing your home is an investment, it is important to know the maintenance and care that your new furniture will require. We would love to help in any way that we can so below we have put together an overview of how to care for the pieces in your home.
Fabric care…How to increase the longevity of your fabric
It is always a good idea to have your furniture treated with a fabric protectant. This is something that can be done before delivery as there is no type of treatment applied in the factory. The treatment we recommend is Guardsman. when applied the treatment enhances the ability of your fabric to be cleaned , as well as adds to the overall durability.
There are some low maintenance tips that we would suggest you do throughout the life of your upholstered furniture. With just a few steps you can drastically improve the beauty and longevity of your pieces.
- Rotate and flip your cushions regularly to evenly distribute wear.
- Be sure to fluff the back cushions and pillows. Over time fiber can settle and lose it’s loft. you can bring back the loft by fluffing them once a week or so.
- Keep away from extreme temperature and moisture change
- treat stains as soon as possible so they do not dry and set.
- blot spills with white cloth or paper towel. Do NOT scrub.
- Regular vacuuming to remove dust is recommended.
- IF you notice any pilling on your pieces it can easily be removed with a manual or battery operated pill shaver. this may occur several times but will diminish and eventually cease once the fivers are removed.
Caring for leather…
In spite of the durability of leather it is NOT invincible.
- Placement is important. Keep leather out of direct sunlight, changes in temperature and humidity.
- Regularly dust and vacuum
- we recommend that with the seasons you use a cleaner and conditioner to keep the leather soft and supple.
The number one tip to keeping your wood furniture looking great is to keep it free from dust. Dust collection on wood furniture can cause surface scratches. It is also important to know what type of finish is on your furniture as some finishes have negative reactions to polish.

We are so honored to be the host of Smith Brothers of Berne 2015 fall market. This market comes around twice a year and each time our Fort Wayne location is closed for a week. (September 21-25)
You may be wondering, why in the world would any retail store want to be closed for a week? Well, at this time we are able to change out our entire stock of upholstered furniture. This is done in order to make room for 100s of pieces of new inventory showcasing the new fabrics available from Smith Brothers. Dealers from across the nation have to travel to our store in order to view the new introductions made by Smith Brothers of Berne. These new introductions are not available to the others for several months after the show.
Habegger Furniture’s clients are seeing the latest in styles and fabric trends days after they are introduced.

Your master retreat will not be complete without a mattress that allows you enjoy a perfect nights sleep. While it may seem that said mattress is something only found in a fairytale, we feel we have the perfect blend of options to help you find one that is ideal for you.
Searching out a mattress use to be a relatively easy task. However with the addition of so many new technologies, materials, and claims the waters are muddied and difficult to navigate. Below you will find information to help guide you on your search.
What are the top 4 signs you should be looking for a new mattress?
- You wake up in the morning tired or achy.
- You tend to sleep better at hotels than in your own bed.
- Your mattress shows signs of wear, looks lumpy or saggy.
- Your mattress is 7-10 year old
What should you look for when purchasing a new mattress?
At traditional mattress stores you may be given an overload of information that can make you want to run for the door. What it truly comes down to is comfort and support. The best mattress is purely subjective. What is best for one person may be the cause of aches for another. You must take the time try out different types of mattresses to get a feel for what works for your particular needs. The question then becomes is it comfortable to you, and is it giving you the support that you need? Your spine should be in proper alignment in any mattress that you consider. Have a trained eye distinguish if the support given is adequate. This will help you to narrow down your options between what “feels good” and what is right for you.
(Below you will see proper support, as well as what happens when a bed is too soft or too firm.)
What options will you find?
When looking for a new mattress the materials and technologies are what will give you the most differences in support and comfort. You will see beds representing 4 different groups
- Innerspring-most common and often least expensive
- Foam – memory foam and latex said to be best for those with neck and back pain because of how they support
- Hybrid– a mix of technologies adding to either the comfort or support of each other
- Air– bed with air chamber able to be adjusted to customize the level of support needed by each person.
Keep in mind that there is not a single bed that will be perfect for everyone…. despite the claims you may hear. Spend time and pay close attention to how you feel on each bed. It is recommended that 1/3 of each day be spent sleeping, and that time sets the tone for the hours we spend awake. Your sleep is truly worth the investment.
At Habegger Furniture we have the options you need to select a sleep surface that fits you best. With our showrooms representing mattresses from each major group and all on adjustable bases you can be sure to find the bed that was made for you. We can set you up for a restful sleep with pillows that only enhance the comfort of our mattress options. Stop in either of our great locations to see what you have been missing out on.
