Rooms To Go was founded in 1991 but the company’s roots go back to the 1933 founding of Seaman’s Furniture by Julius Seaman.
In 1988 Seaman’s was taken over by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. for $350 million in a buyout.
In 1990 the Seaman family opened the first Rooms To Go in Orlando, Florida.
Rooms To Go markets package deals to brand-conscious, time-pressed customers. The company offers low-to-medium priced furniture and accessories with discounts going to those willing to buy a roomful at a time.
In 2016, the company began offering collections by Eric Church, called “Highway to Home.”
As of 2016, the company has 132 locations, approximately 7,000 employees, and annual revenue in the same year of $2.2 billion. Headquarters are located in Seffner, Florida.
