Haverty Furniture was recently named “furniture retailer of the year” by the leading trade publication furniture today. You could say that this award was 127 years in the making because that’s when Haverty furniture first went into business in the Atlanta area. From those humble beginnings Haverty Furniture is now operating in 17 states across the South and has 119 showrooms filled with a large variety of quality furniture and home accessories. Haverty’s President and CEO, Clarence Smith said at the award ceremonies, “I would like to thank all of our employees who everyday help our customer translate her dreams into beautiful rooms. Their dedication keeps Havertys as vibrant now as it was when it was founded 127 years ago.”
If you would be fortunate enough to have some furniture pieces from that very first Haverty’s furniture store then you could be in possession of some exquisite antique pieces. However, there is a fine line between what makes a piece of furniture a true antique as opposed to just some junk. One of the things that separate an antique for junk is the amount of available pieces that are in circulation. For instance, Art Deco type furniture that was made in the 20s is a prize possession among many collectors because of its rarity. Back then it was just common furniture but today those pieces are much sought after by antique dealers. Of course, the furniture has to be in pretty good condition in order to fetch a decent price.
Now consider your own sofa that you probably got within the last 10 years or so. It’s a piece that has most likely was mass manufactured. In other words there are probably 1 million sofas just like it floating around. While you’re sofa might have provided you with years of comfort it certainly couldn’t be classified as an antique. When you add up all the wear and tear that sofa has gone through plus all the possible stains then it’s clear it has moved into the junk category. Many homeowners find themselves in the exact same position as owning “junk” as opposed to antiques.
However, that doesn’t mean you can’t get rid of that junk and replace it with some brand-new furniture.
Shopping at a furniture showroom helps you consider all the possibilities for your own home or apartment. Keep in mind that you’re under no obligation to buy the exact same living room set up that is put on display in a showroom. In fact, you might find yourself mixing and matching a sofa from one display and a coffee table from another.
