Explore the section below for the story of Samuelson Legendary Furniture.
This is where we came from. This is where it started.
In 1935, my father Samuel and grandfather Harry partnered together to start their business, Invincible Parlor Frame Co. in Paterson, New Jersey. Manufacturing unfinished frames to local upholsterers began the 85-year journey that leads us to today.
My father, kept a sharp focus on the direction of the company as he explored opportunities for their growing business. Creating meaningful relationships with European furniture makers whose artisan products resonated with his vision brought a new dimension to Invincible. These became the building blocks that enabled the company to grow beyond their humble dreams.
My father’s underlying relationships with the finest people and companies in the industry were as meaningful as providing them the best quality. The company grew with employees that were treated as family. This was and remains the heart and soul of Samuelson today.
I learned about leadership during the years I spent working by my father’s side. His honesty, commitment and kindness serve as the bedrock of our company. As a result, we have a team of talented women and men and a supply chain that is second to none in the industry.
As the fourth generation entered the business we honored my father with the corporate name Samuelson Furniture.
Although the world around us has changed and the furniture which we provide incorporates creative technology and forward thinking design, it is fueled by 85 years of experience and evolution. Yet we remain a family business and together with my son Michael, we strive to fulfill the legacy of Harry and Samuel.
Some mornings when I arrive early, I walk through the factory across time worn floors. Before the start of the day, I glance up to the rafters. Hundreds of furniture frame parts and patterns collected through the decades hang proudly above.
This is where we come from. This is where it started.
