Customized Dining Room Furniture by Emerald
Emerald Home Furnishings® is a full-line supplier to home furniture retailers throughout the United States and in other countries around the world including Canada, Mexico, Australia, Japan, Taiwan, England, Guatemala, Saudi Arabia, and Costa Rica. Started in 1962 as B&D Sales by Bond and Doug Shippy, the company distributed bed frames and unfinished furniture. In 1974, George Ritchie (a company representative at that time) purchased the business. The company was incorporated in 1977 and continued to grow, adding a number of additional product lines. In 1986, Evan Ritchie purchased the company from his father, starting a whirlwind of growth. In 1990, Evan purchased a mattress factory, Perfect Rest Bedding, and in 1993 he added an import division known as Emerald Home Furnishings®. In March of 2002 ownership changed; new owner David Beckmann, President, currently leads the Emerald team.
