Furniture Row was founded in 1978 in Denver, Colorado by Barney Visser. Visser originally began selling large, overstuffed pillows, but changed in the late 70’s to selling waterbed’s.
Today, Furniture Row has 331 stores in 31 states. The company also operates under different names including Denver Mattress, Oak Express, Sofa Mart, and Bedroom Expressions. All stores feature particular items and include common household furniture such as bedroom furniture, dining room furniture, furniture for kid’s rooms, rugs, and home decor.
The company is also a sponsor of NASCAR racing since 2005.
