Since 1924, the goal of the Stanley Furniture Company has been to manufacture high quality furniture at a price the average American family could afford. To accomplish this goal, founder Thomas Bahnson Stanley surrounded himself with the finest furniture craftsmen and instilled in them a sense of pride in building superb quality into every piece of Stanley Furniture. Today, that pride is shared by more than 1,750 dedicated associates who have made Stanley Furniture one of the largest, most respected furniture manufacturers in the nation.
The StoryWhen they name a town after you, it's clear you're doing something right. That's true for Thomas B. Stanley, who in 1924 traded a life as a dairy farmer for one of making finely crafted furniture. He started by hand-picking lumber from the northeast and having it shipped to what would become known as Stanleytown, Virginia.
Tradition You Can Put Your Hands OnThomas the furniture maker established long ago that in order to stand out he had to offer something special. It was true 88 years ago, and it's true today. It starts with the materials, which are hand-crafted from fine quality woods. The Stanley Furniture construction phase takes into account that fine furniture is more than just a pretty face. It's a work of art and its engineering is evident right down to its core. And the finish, Finishes not only add color, but protect, seal and enhance the surface of your furniture. Stanley uses a 30-step finishing process. And if you want to know what those 30 steps are, you'll find them on the company's website.
