Made in America

As an American furniture company, we don't take the phrase "Made in America" lightly. To us, it means that our products must meet a certain standard of quality, not only in design but in durability as well. It means more than just where it was made - it means where it came from: where rules are broken, limits are pushed and craftsmanship reigns supreme.

Outdoor furniture offers a world of possibility. Indoors, we're constrained by space and decor requirements. But outdoors? Outdoors is where people expect you to let your hair down a bit - and there's an inherent need for practicality as well when we're talking about weather-proof furniture. No messing with fancy wood finishes and veneers.

Happy Earth Day, fellow humans! In celebration of today and in the spirit of raising awareness for creating a sustainable earth, we'd like to give a few shout outs to some companies that are taking their own steps to make sure that the earth and its resources will be plentiful for generations to come. You can do your part too by shopping for eco-friendly products from our FSC-Certified brands. Each of these companies has gone through rigorous testing and must continually meet strict standards to maintain their certification.

Top Sleeper Sofas

At Smart Furniture, we're redefining the way you feel about sleeper sofas. We understand that those two words can often cause traumatic flashbacks to childhood vacations when you were duped into believing you'd finally get your own "bed" - when in reality all you got was a thin, creaky mattress that had been kept hidden away from the world by tacky upholstered seat cushions and metal springs that hurt almost as bad as knowing you had been shafted.

Eames Lounge Chair ... in Ebony

  • Share:

The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman is a modern classic. It's never been equaled, never been surpassed from concept to execution. Sure, it's been copied (or, to put it delicately, "knocked off"). But a copy is just that - a shadow of the real thing.

As we embark upon a rundown of our top 10 TV stands, I think it's important to acknowledge the elephant in the room. [Hello, elephant.] We all love lists, but half the time they're only good as linkbait. There, I said it.

The GESTURE Chair, Steelcase's latest (and greatest) office seating innovation, is now available to order. That's exciting news! We've been modifying our posture to fit our office chairs for the past few years of multi-device tasking. But now that GESTURE is here, there's finally a chair that will fit our posture.

The Blu Dot Modu-licious Collection has been around for a while - and it doesn't look like it's going anywhere. Right now all the pieces in the collection are on sale with the rest of Blu Dot during the 20/20 Sale. So why is this stuff so popular? Its staying power can be easily attributed to two factors.

I don't know about you, but when I'm shopping for anything, I always check out the customer reviews for a first hand opinion. Do I need to size up or down? Are these shoes really comfortable or an unusual form of torture?

It's that time again, y'all. We've tracked down another of the unique people who make Smart Furniture great. Since we're known for our exceptional customer service, we thought that it would be appropriate to do an employee profile of one of our Customer Servisticians, Christian Roemer. Known also as C-Roem, C Rizzle, or C-Rex, Christian just recently tried out for American Ninja Warrior and was defeated by the narrowest of margins. He graciously agreed to take some time away from making sure everyone's happy to answer a few of our questions.

I sit in an Embody Chair for 9 hours or so every day, five days a week, 50 weeks of the year. You get the point; I'm a sedentary worker. If it weren't for the ping pong table I might never make it back onto my feet during the workday.
