When you think of your ideal living room, what comes to mind? Do you imagine the whole family piling on a huge sectional sofa to watch a movie? Or do you prefer a couple plush armchairs and a loveseat to relax on? We’ve helped so many people choose their perfect upholstered furniture from our stylish, yet functional and durable designs we carry, and we will help you too!
We have a great range from a family-owned furniture maker in North Carolina who, since 1989, has mastered the art of creating functional, comfortable and flexible sofas and chairs. Each piece is custom made by one skilled craftsman from start to finish.

She worked with customers from all over the country creating incredibly intricate and beautiful custom architectural stained glass for their homes and businesses. “Where did the time go?

The new showroom downstairs is big enough to feature the new line of furniture, old lamps from her personal collection, and a variety of sale items. (more…)
