Star Furniture was founded in Houston, Texas, in 1912 by three men who decided to pool their money to buy a cart and horse to deliver furniture.
Today, the company operates as a subsidiary of the Berkshire-Hathaway company. Currently, the company has 11 locations in Texas, mainly in the greater Houston area.
The company is the oldest furniture store in Texas. In addition to furniture, the company sells decorative items, rugs, mattresses, and curtains.
Star Furniture also offers customers design services and has two clearance locations in Houston. The company carries many well known brands of furniture, including Thomasville, Hooker, Natuzzi, and Kincaid.
While many other businesses are closing or experiencing hardships due to the coronavirus pandemic, Star Furniture and other furniture retailers are finding business is booming in 2020.
