Union Furniture Company knows how to meet your needs when choosing the right furniture for your home or business. Celebrating 102 years in the industry, they are the oldest furniture and flooring store in Franklin as well as surrounding counties.

Maria Blankenship, who has been involved in the family business for 20 years said, “We truly are a family business and take great pride in our customer service and the products we sell. Our goal is to help you create an environment that is stylish as well as comfortable for your everyday living.”

When choosing new furniture for your home, the professionals at Union Furniture Company suggest you know your living space and what best fits into your everyday lifestyle and family needs. It is also important to know your comfort level, dimensions, and other spacing restrictions.

They also recommend looking at the specific parts of furniture construction. Upholstered furniture should have a kiln-dried, solid hardwood frame with a good spring unit for support. Cushion seat cores need to have a density of 1.8 to 2.5 lbs. Case goods or wood furniture should have a solid wood case construction. Drawers should be all solid wood with English or French dovetails and a good drawer glide system, which is important for everyday use.

Union Furniture Company offers a full line of furniture, flooring, lamps, accessories, and window treatments. Their interior design service can also assist you in selecting paint, countertops, and cabinetry. They can help you from start to finish to create a unique look that fits your lifestyle.

They also carry brand names they trust and have dealt with for 30 years such as Lane, La-Z-Boy, Serta, Flexsteel, Hooker, Mayo, Broyhill, Universal, Riverside, and American Drew.

Since Union Furniture Company is always looking for the “Next Hot Thing,” they feature both of Paula Dean’s Furniture collections and are looking forward to her 3rd line coming soon. Splashes of bright colors are key this year as well as new warm taupes, grays, tans, and golds to brighten your room. Black and white colors continue to be strong and neutral choices as well. Painted furniture is always a great way to accessorize and add some color to your existing wood tones.

When it comes to bedding, the Cooled Gel Memory Foam mattresses are very popular, Blankenship said. She says powered reclining furniture can also add convenience and luxury to your living space.

Union Furniture Company has added new boutique items that include jewelry, scarfs and other fashionable accessories.

The Union Furniture family stands behind selling quality products at a good and fair price every day. Come browse their 85,000 square-foot showroom and enjoy shopping in a relaxed, family atmosphere.
