WHAT SETS US APART
Dalton, Ohio in 1985 when we opened a small store on Main Street. Dalton is a small agricultural community located between Wooster and Canton on US Rt. 30 – 60 miles south of Cleveland.
The store originally specialized in hand-painted, custom-made furniture with country styling, and also sold Amish-crafted dining room furniture. After business hours, we would make trips into neighboring Holmes County, where the world's largest settlement of Amish live, to find new product or to find new builders to build furniture for our collection. Slowly the Classic Oak Collection developed and bedroom furniture was added. Today we sell five species of wood with character cherry being our top seller.
One of our early goals was to provide our clientele with high-quality furniture that our customer could depend on without paying high-end branded prices.
The store got a major boost when we opened a second location in Harrisonburg, Virginia, in the fall of 1991. This was an area where we had traveled and we found to be similar in demographics to the Ohio location. We initially opened in Valley Mall, to test the market, but soon sought a larger store. We moved to our present location in Duke’s Plaza at 2265 South Main Street in Harrisonburg.
House of Oak & Sofas features a 37,000 square foot showroom plus a 10,000 square foot warehouse. We sell home office furniture, bedding, entertainment centers and a full line of upholstered furniture – part of which is a Flexsteel Home Gallery that gives us access to thousands of frame and fabric choices for sofas, chairs, recliners, stools, ottomans and other upholstery. In addition, we sell Norwalk, Lancer and Flexsteel upholstery.
Because we have easy access to Interstate 81, travelers stop to visit and often end up buying. If their vehicle isn't large enough and they travel from a distance, they might only buy a few accessories but also might take advantage of our extensive delivery service that reaches a five state area.
It's our traveling customers who are one of the reasons for the creation and maintenance of our website. Over and over again, customers tell us that we need to come to their area with a store, and although we would love to do that, we also feel we can be more efficient if we stay in one location and ship furniture to you.
Without a doubt, the most satisfying way to shop our store is to drive here and take a couple hours to browse. With over 3,000 fabric choices, many custom finish options and all the accessories, you only get the full impact by walking the aisles and "visiting" with the merchandise. On our website, we introduce some of the best sellers from our line – items that we sell day in and day out.
From a simple room refresh to styling your entire home, we're here to help bring your vision to life. Shop online, in store or call ahead to have a sales consultant reserve time to help you solve your decorating problems.
We proudly serve the areas of Harrisonburg, Massanutten, McGaheysville, Elkton, Staunton, Fishersville, Waynesboro, Crozet, Luray and Charlottesville in Virginia.
