About the Manufacturer

We’re a Florida-based retailer on a mission to change the way people live, with beautiful home furnishings at incredible values. Our roots date back to the 1970s when we opened as Waterbed City, and over the years we’ve evolved into a leading furniture and home accents destination. Style and value is at the core of everything we do, and with nearly 20 showrooms across the state and an expansive ecommerce site, we’re constantly evolving our lineup to bring our customers the very best. There’s a reason our tagline is “Everyone Can Live Like This.” By this, we mean getting the looks you love, with the prices you can afford, at the time you want them. It means offering every type of style, because no two homes are exactly the same. It means exclusive brands, like our Kevin Charles label, and personalized options at every turn. It means giving you everything you need at once, from the mattress to go with your bed to the wall décor that accents the sofa. And it means delivering it all quickly, because style should never wait. We aim to be as beautiful on the inside as our furniture is on the outside. A big part of that commitment is making green choices, so we can all look forward to a cleaner future. That’s why our delivery trucks run on compressed natural gas, and we recycle millions of pounds of waste every year. We also have LEED showrooms, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. And thanks to our responsible sourcing, we earned top scores from the Sustainable Furnishings Council in 2018. We know it’s our responsibility to give back, because we’re only as strong as our neighbors. So from raising funds for local and national charities, to getting hands-on for a cause, to donating furniture to those in need, we’re here to help. Some of our most passionate causes include breast cancer awareness, for which we run a month-long campaign every October. We’re also extremely dedicated to supporting youth in distress, working with charities like the Boys & Girls Club, the Covenant House Florida, and more.
