Havertys - Furnishing homes since 1885
Haverty Furniture Companies, Inc. was founded in 1885 by James and Michael Haverty in Atlanta, Georgia. By 1908, the company had grown to 17 store locations. The company continued to be led by descendents of the original founders until 1994, when John E. Slater replaced Frank McGaughey, Jr. as President and CEO. The retailer released its first branded collection in 2000, and in 2001 the company was reintegrated as a family affair when the great grandson of James Haverty, Clarence H. Smith was named President and CEO. An eco-friendly line of furniture for a smaller carbon footprint was launched in 2009. Today, the company remains headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia and has over 3,000 employees in over 100 locations nationwide. Grossing over $620 million in 2010, the retailer continues to be a large player in American furnishings.
