1969

Darrell Harris started selling furniture with a few catalogs, showroom samples, an old truck and a big idea. His idea? Provide customers personalized service and exceptional value for handcrafted North Carolina furniture.

1972

With a small loan, Furnitureland South was born. Since there were a number of furniture stores north of Main Street, Darrell strategically positioned the company to garner sales south of Main Street. With newborn Jason and toddler Jeff, it was a risk to the young family, but wife Stella supported her husband’s vision.

1977

The Harris’ formula of providing personalized service and a strong value for high-quality furniture was successful in building a loyal customer base. There seemed to be only one missing component: a great selection. After building its first 17,000 square-foot showroom, Furnitureland South now had ample space to showcase its furnishings.

1990

Furnitureland South opened the world’s largest retail furniture showroom: a 228,000 square-foot addition to the current distribution facility, putting everything under one roof. After years of mowing the company lawn, taking out trash and moving literally thousands of furniture pieces to help their father, it was time for Jason and Jeff to take a greater role in the company.

1999

To further enhance the shopper’s experience, Furnitureland South enlarged its showroom space again by opening the Mart — known for the world’s largest 18th-Century highboy replica. The Mart houses an additional 420,000 square feet of specialized galleries including leather, youth, rugs, outdoor and more.

2001

Furnitureland South welcomed a newly constructed cutting-edge 250,000 square-foot Distribution Center — complete with innovative rack system and pickers. In this climate-controlled environment, no two pieces of furniture touch and inventory is meticulously tracked, inspected and shipped.

2016

In April 2016, High Point University announced that one of its education centers would be named in honor of the Harris family. The Harris Sales Education Center reflects the entrepreneurial spirit of Darrell and Stella Harris, who founded Furnitureland South, and Jeff and Jason Harris, who carry on the legacy today.

Giving

Since its early beginnings, Furnitureland South and its employees have believed in giving back to those in need. Recent efforts include Habitat for Humanity, Brenner Children’s Hospital, Victory Junction Gang Camp, JDRF and the American Red Cross, to name a few.

Today

With more than one million square feet of showroom space, shoppers can browse through a vast selection of quality furnishings, plan a room in the Design Center, grab a Starbucks coffee and break for a meal at the Furnitureland South Subway. Nowhere else do customers have access to millions of furnishings and thousands of fabrics to bring their creative vision to life.
