Our first New York factory opened its doors in 1982, where painted footprints on the sidewalk were used to guide the curious passerby into our shop. The curious became clients, and their experience of quality, craftsmanship and design expertise was quickly shared with the greater New York area. Classic Sofa expanded from Brooklyn to Manhattan, establishing a flagship showroom at 22nd Street and Fifth Avenue, eventually growing to four in Ridgewood, NJ, Manhasset, LI and Greenwich, CT.
Despite the success of the early years, Classic Sofa was hit by the reality of the 2008 recession, and like many fine retailers during this time, closed our brick-and-mortar locations while maintaining production through our factory, then in Mt. Vernon, NY. Despite the downturn of the economy, we never deviated from our commitment to the highest quality materials in our pure down cushioning, or our hardwood frames guaranteed for life, and continued to embody old-world manufacturing methods when others were forced to cut corners.
In 2012, Classic Sofa passed into new ownership under Blake Anding, who continues to hold the position today. Blake began his career in finance, where he realized his passions in life were not found on the trading floor. His fascination with the upholstery industry, entrepreneurial spirit, and a bit of serendipitous timing led him to purchase the brand with a mission to revive its roots as a leader in the custom upholstery market. He spent endless hours learning from our master craftsmen who had been with the company since its launch over 35 years ago. His passion, grace and grit are responsible for delivering an unmatched custom product, built to withstand a lifetime, transcend trend and reflect your personal style.
We invite you to experience our factory and showroom space, now located in the Bronx. The humble beginnings that launched our brand continue to resonate through our operation and our people. Widely recognized for our quality, style and consistency across leaders in interior design, hospitality and personal residences – we look forward to taking on your next project.
