Manufacturer owns and operates its own sustainable forest to craft American-made heirlooms
Online PR News – 24-July-2012 – Grand Rapids, Michigan – GORMAN’S HOME FURNISHINGS AND INTERIOR DESIGN, the style leader in home interiors, has announced the addition of Harden Furniture to its Grand Rapids showroom. Gorman’s is the exclusive Grand Rapids retailer of the manufacturer’s pieces.
Harden Furniture is recognized by its luxurious fabrics and use of beautiful, solid, American woods. Items are customizable and made with a mixture of old-world craftsmanship and modern technology. Many of its pieces are designed in the classic and traditional American style.
Designed to meet the needs to today’s active families with a defined elegance, the company produces pieces for the bedroom, living room and dining room, as well as upholstery.
Harden Furniture, which has been led by five generations of the Harden family, was founded more than 160 years ago in Upstate New York by Charles S. Harden Sr. The all-American company owns and manages a 10,000 acre woodland where it harvests trees for its furniture.
In 2011, Harden was commissioned to make a 16-foot-long black cherry conference table for the Roosevelt Room in the White House. The company also has created additional furniture for the White House and Capitol including the first lady’s office furniture, numerous executive desks, one thousand chairs for the Capitol Visitor Center, and chairs for the caucus rooms in the House and Senate.
“At Gorman’s, we have exacting standards,” said Tom Lias, president and COO of Gorman’s. “We figured if Harden Furniture’s pieces were good enough for the White House, they were good enough for our customers.”

With a reputation built on a commitment to quality – quality merchandise and quality design – the company delivers all of the best brands, not just a few, at the best prices-regardless of price point.
