Family Friendly

As a family-friendly brand, we make families’ lives easier.

Our product designers, many of which are parents themselves, know the importance of having family-friendly furnishings and fabrics at home. Our eco-friendly upholstery offerings include performance fabrics, as well as washable slipcovers. Our expansive media sofas invite families to gather together, while many of our sofas, sectionals, and ottomans are designed with soft, rounded edges and resilient cushions.

As an employee-centric brand, we believe that having our young children on site at our not-for-profit daycare center, not only simplifies things for parents, but it also enables families to bond during the day. This includes providing outdoor play areas and highchairs in our café so parents can eat breakfast and lunch with their children.

Named in honor of our late bulldog mascot, Lulu’s Child Enrichment Center, is one of our company’s proudest accomplishments – and the first of its kind in our industry. Not only do we provide our employees and local community members with a safe, friendly and fun home-away-from-home for their children, but our daycare has also received North Carolina’s prestigious five-star rating.

Every activity is individually tailored to each age group, from playtime to learning their ABCs and important social skills, and also prepares them for Kindergarten. Hands-on learning teaches healthy eating and exercise habits by harvesting vegetables from the daycare’s own garden and picking plums from the fruit trees that line our street.

Hundreds of children have graduated from our daycare program since it opened. Every year on graduation day, Mitchell and Bob personally hand a diploma to each child, who join them on stage, clad in a miniature cap and gown. Many of our commencement speakers have been well-known figures, including Bev Perdue, the first female governor of North Carolina, and U.S. Senator Kay Hagan.

Since 2000, we have offered another incentive: a college scholarship program that’s open to our employees’ children. We also hold a ceremony for scholarship recipients, many of which are the first in their family to attend college.

In addition to our child enrichment center and annual college scholarship program, we offer an onsite health-conscious gourmet café run by the company’s formally trained chef, a physical fitness center, a wellness clinic, and a free annual health fair.
