We love telling you more about some of the brands we carry and we hope you enjoy learning more about some of your favorite brands as well! Today we’d like to tell you a little more about Flexsteel. So, sit back, relax and have a closer look at Flexsteel!

Flexsteel Industries, Inc., founded in 1893 as Rolph & Ball Furniture company, is one of the oldest U.S. upholstered furniture manufacturers. 120 years later, Flexsteel is a true American success story, having gone from one small factory in Minneapolis to a nationwide five-plant, global sourcing network. They’re known for making high-quality, long-lasting stationary & reclining furniture – sofas, sectionals, love-seats, chairs, recliners & more – offered in a selection of styles that runs the gambit and with a variety of price points.

What sets Flexsteel apart from the rest is their use of the Blue Steel Spring. Developed by Swiss inventor E.W. Schlappritzi in the 1920s for European railroad car seating, Flexsteel decided to use this as the base for their furniture to stand out. It’s performed so well that the design has barely changed in over 75 years and Flexsteel guarantees it for life.

Flexsteel also offers warranties for many of the other materials used in their cushions and reclining mechanisms, not just this one. Since each piece of furniture is created by skilled craftsmen and each frame thoroughly tested to meet the highest of quality standards, this is their way of offering you peace-of-mind. Your furniture will continue to support and comfort for years to come.

No matter your style or needs, Flexsteel offers the selection that’s exactly right for your home. Most pieces are available in thousands of frame and fabric combos, so no matter how you’ve imagined your perfect fit, you’ll be sure to find it.

You can check out their furniture on our site or drop by one of our locations today to see everything in person!

We love telling you more about some of the brands we carry and we hope you’re enjoying learning more about some of your favorite brands as well! Today we’d like to tell you a little more about Liberty Furniture. So sit back and relax and have a closer look at what Liberty Furniture is all about.

Liberty is a privately owned business that designs value-driven, quality furniture. In 1992, Richard Brian took the opportunity to start his own business. He began with a vision of a company that would thrive on the values of hard-work, fairness, and integrity. With only seven people and a modest section of warehouse in west Atlanta, Liberty Furniture opened its doors selling only wood chairs and laminate table tops.

Steadily, the company introduced more casual dining styles and the vision that was Liberty began to take form. Early on, when Liberty could only afford a basement level showroom in High Point, Mr. Brian would take chairs out to the street in order to entice customers. This initiative and passion for success is visible to this day and is at the very heart of Liberty.

Liberty Furniture is a dedicated provider of all wood products including bedroom, dining, entertainment, occasional and home office categories. Their products were developed using years of knowledge coupled with a vision of the future. By working with industry leading designers and top tier factories, Liberty is well positioned to provide quality products at a great value. They use high-quality wood with the best veneers and conduct an extensive, detail-oriented finishing process, including some level of distressing. In addition, they build their products with high-level hardware to ensure durability. Liberty is widely recognized for its innovative strategies, enjoying private label relationships with some of the America’s Top 100 Furniture Retailers.

It also addresses American furniture manufacturer’s brush with extinction as global capitalism led to outsourcing and the massive loss of 73,000 jobs, as well as the crippling of many southern furniture towns. It finally details John D. Bassett III’s years’ long Capital Hill fight to save these American jobs from Chinese takeover. The book is getting special treatment as Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman plan its production as a miniseries for HBO.

Vaughan-Bassett Furniture is a specialist in affordable, well-crafted furniture for the bedroom, and the largest producer of wood bedroom furniture in the U.S. While furniture plants across the country have permanently shuttered their doors due to overseas competition in recent years, Vaughan-Bassett chose to ensure that, at nearly 100 years old, the company would remain the largest employer in its hometown of Galax, Virginia by outfitting its plants with state-of-the-art equipment and updating all of its procedures.

Nearly 700 talented and hard-working craftspeople head to work at Vaughan-Bassett each day, proud in the knowledge that they are creating quality furnishings their fellow consumers can trust to live and sleep with every day. Thanks to the growing number of people who recognize how important domestic manufacturing is to the health of America’s economy and insist on buying American-made goods, the company has recently opened a second plant to satisfy the increased demand for its products. Vaughan-Bassett expects to create another 115 jobs over the next three years.

Every piece of furniture in Vaughan-Bassett’s Appalachian Hardwood Collection is made from either solid oak or solid cherry. Along with natural beauty, furniture crafted from solid wood offers durability and longevity, an important factor to consider when shopping for your bedroom. But don’t worry about the forests! As a founding member of the Sustainable Furniture Council, Vaughan-Bassett is committed to manufacturing furniture in a responsible and environmentally friendly manner. All lumber is harvested within a day’s drive of its factories in Virginia—reducing the carbon footprint associated with the transport of raw materials. Through its “One for One” program, Vaughan-Bassett has contributed hundreds of thousands of tree seedlings to the Virginia Department of Forestry. The planting of these maple, oaks, ash, pine, poplar and applewood trees allow the replacement of every tree used in the production of its bedroom suites. Carl E. Garrison III, a Virginia state forester, calls “planting one new tree in Virginia for every tree you harvest each year, sustainability at its best.”

Domestic production translates to fast delivery to the retailers who feature Vaughan-Bassett’s products online and on their floors, and subsequently, to your home. Even on special orders. That’s especially important, because every piece of furniture Vaughan-Bassett makes is available in multiple finishes—affording you the ultimate freedom of choice in design and color when furnishing your home.

So come by Suburban Furniture today to check out our selection of Vaughan-Bassett furniture and find your perfect fit!
