Our brand began in 1989 with the seed of an idea: comfort for all. That idea quickly grew, guiding us and uniting us in everything we stand (and sit) for. With those roots in mind, we invite you to join our spirited quest to make the world a more comfortable place: for all.
Often referred to as the masters of modern home furnishings, co-founders Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams bring the perfect blend of business and creative energy to our brand. Together, they strategize with our in-house design team to create products with the guiding principle of producing only furnishings they would want in their own homes. With that shared vision, Bob directs the design execution and Mitchell oversees marketing, sales and production.
We want to make life easier for families. From offering forgiving fabrics and washable slipcovers to kid-friendly furnishings, we design with families in mind. In 1999, we started a not-for-profit, onsite daycare that provides healthy meals, active play, and education-based learning for our employees’ children. We also offer an annual college scholarship program, wellness clinic, physical fitness center, and a health-conscious gourmet café at our factory and company headquarters.
We’ve been making environmentally intelligent decisions since our inception, from how we design and craft our eco-friendly upholstery to how we pack and ship our products. As active members of the Sustainable Furnishing Council, we work with the furniture industry to develop best practices to ensure a sustainable planet for generations to come.
To us, Made in America is more than just a catch phrase – it’s the heart and soul of our ethos. Our earth-friendly upholstery is handcrafted in our almost-1,000,000-sq-ft modern factory, based in Taylorsville, North Carolina. Each piece is carefully bench-made by skilled artisans to create a work of art that will stand the test of time.
Comfort: It’s at the center of who we are and our values. Simply put, we believe in comfort for all – comfort for our employees, comfort for their families and comfort for our customers. We strive to cultivate and maintain an environment of mutual respect and inclusion, all the while innovating, designing and crafting furnishings to make your home – and life – more comfortable.
From the moment we met her, our late English bulldog Lulu captivated our hearts. Over the years, she made appearances in our ads, and in many ways, became the “face” of our brand. Lulu has been our muse ever since, inspiring us to be a pet-friendly brand, from welcoming pets in our signature stores to designing products with your four-legged friends (and ours) in mind.
