Smilow® Furniture Does Last a Lifetime

From the genesis of Smilow® Furniture in 1949, the aim was to design and build midcentury modern furniture that were “Enduring Modern Classics”.

Well, it’s always great when there is proof of this motto. We were contacted this month by a Dutch family who furnished their entire White Plains, NY home with Smilow Furniture in the 70s. The original furniture is still used and continues to be cherished.

They invited us into their home to see how well the furniture held up over the decades.

The daughter remembers,

“As a young teen, I recall going many times to your Dad’s White Plains store with my parents. Even though it took a while to find their dream house, they always knew it would be filled with Mr. Smilow’s furniture. This happened in 1970 … Mom and Dad bought a house. Every room was filled with this beautiful furniture. A couple years later when my Grandmother moved back to New York from Amsterdam, her apartment was filled with the same furniture.”
