Sligh 133 Years... a great beginning
Back then furniture factories were very specialized. One plant might make headboards for beds. Another, under different ownership, might specialize in dressers. Still another made night stands. Retailers and consumers were left to their own devices for gathering together the furniture needed in a bedroom.
Great grandpa figured he had a revolutionary idea. In 1880 he founded Sligh Furniture Company, the first to offer from one plant, in coordinated styles and finishes, all the furniture pieces needed for the bedroom. And that innovation did indeed transform the way the industry approached bedroom furniture.
