Rug Buying Tips - Buy Wool or You're a Fool!

I know it sounds like a harsh title to a blog, but seriously buy wool when shopping for a rug. Rug enthusiasts know what I'm talking about...wool is really the only affordable "green product" on the market when it comes to shopping for rugs. Sure you can buy synthetic recycled rugs, but they just don't look very pretty a few months down the road. Wool is all-natural.


Wool wears really well, it conceals dirt and keeps its shape for a long time. Depending on the shag of the rug will determine the cleaning method of that rug. Always have a vacuum with a hose extension or a broom handy when cleaning your rugs. I always avoid running my vacuum's spinning brush on the rug - this will prevent unraveling and improper wear over time.

When I was shopping for rugs for my apartment - I had severe sticker shock! How could something I walk on that's 5'x7' cost over $28 a square foot. That's more than the price of real estate in Terrytown.

After picking my jaw up off the ground I hit the Las Vegas Furniture Market with a mission in mind. Find a credible, quality product that has great style for the Austin market. I found that in Surya Rugs.


Surya has placed a large rug display in our retail store giving all of our customers a vivid look at quality, uniqueness and plenty of choice. I challenge you to stop in today and check out the amazing styles of Surya rugs.

We can even ship them to your doorstep :)

Thanks again for the read,

Invest in Your Rest at Mattress Shack

This idea never really struck home with me until I reached my breaking point. I thought I was invincible and I could sleep anywhere, anytime, and on any surface.

Along came my 30th birthday, and I started losing sleep. It's like my brain and back were screaming for relief. I found myself awake several times during the night restless. I tried everything to cure my sleep, cut out the caffeine, go to bed earlier, even tried new detergent and fabric conditioner. To no avail I was still awake at 3 a.m. playing Angry Birds.

Duh, it was my mattress! I invested tons in a fancy mattress from a big box store right before we got married. I thought if you spend more you get more. WRONG. All the bells and whistles sounded awesome at the time of purchase, but the mattress didn't fit me obviously.

At Austin's Couch Potatoes - we have a piece of your slumber down pat with our great couches, but we were lacking in the mattress department. So my brothers and I have created a whole new experience for our customers needing good rest just like I did a few months back. We're calling it Mattress Shack - we want to bring a fun and inviting atmosphere to our mattress shoppers. We're not going to sell you bells and whistles, we are going to sell you rest, and that's it. The best mattress for you is unique to you. Let us help you find that uniqueness :)

Some of my fav's this month at The Mattress Shack:

Balanced Day's by Beautyrest $1999 for the Queen Set

Eastbrook - $499 for the Queen Set (Best Bargain, 10 year warranty)

For Kid's we just added a memory foam mattress and it's awesome! It comes in Pink or Blue! $259


Shoot me an email if you have questions about the right mattress for you, I'd be honored to help you get more rest.

AND remember

Save money, buy local and we'll keep Austin Comfy!

FAQ - We Need Pet Friendly Furniture - Please help!!

Hey Austinites!

One of our most commonly asked questions from perspective furniture buyers is "How will this furniture hold up with my pets...?" Our goal is make sure you get the right furniture, and that it looks great for years to come.

How does leather or leather like materials hold up to pets?
  • Leather can stand up to most pets.
  • Some pets prefer not to sit or sleep on leather, so make sure you know if you love cuddling with your furry friend :)
  • Leather is easy to clean, so don't be afraid of dirt tracked in by pets.
  • Hair doesn't cling to leather, it's easy to wipe off or clean up with a vacuum.
  • Your pet may leave tiny holes in the leather, but they usually are not too noticeable. Something that every pet lover should understand. If you love your pets, you've gotta just deal with a little wear.  It's worth it.
How does fabric upholstery hold up to pets?
  • Microfiber is probably your best bet, simply because it wears well and is easy to maintain.
  • Microfiber is great for cat owners, simply because a cat's claws cannot get stuck in the material - there are no loops in the fabric.
  • Since Microfiber is 100% Polyester its easy to clean and virtually stain resistant.
  • Microfiber also is not a hair magnet, it releases the pet hair easily with a quick vacuum or brush.
  • Don't pick a fabric that is nubby, or has raised surfaces - as that would be too fun for a pet to scratch - resulting in some damage.
  • Avoid fragile fabrics like silk, wool or linens.
I hope that helps, and if you can't live with the damage your pet has caused your new couch, just let us know and we will connect you with one of our professional leather or fabric repair persons.

A Lot has CHANGED at Austin's Couch Potatoes

Our sphere of furniture options has grown to offering furniture for the WHOLE home, we're no longer that tiny, exclusively leather sofa store....Just a year and half ago we took a risk of bringing our "southern hospitality" to the local furniture market of Austin, Texas - we saw the need to offer honest salesmanship, and good quality to "furniture row". In just a short time span, we have been granted dealership rights for many fine lines of furniture. THIS is unheard of, we attribute this all to our diligence and you - the pleased customer.

In this economic downfall, we clearly understand the meaning of "stretching a dollar". That's why we continue to sell our products at 30-70% off our competitors retail prices, and pass on to our customers a better manufactured product. It's a Double Win.

How do we do this? We keep our overhead expenses SUPER LOW, and we specialize in helping the big box store guys sell their showroom models. From day-to-day our inventory changes, stop by weekly to see our new arrivals!
