Stickley Furniture: Simple and Pure
The company's roots are humble. In 1900 Leopold Stickley and his younger brother John George Stickley began manufacturing furniture in Fayetteville, NY. Four years later their company was incorporated as L. & J.G. Stickley. Their major retailer in the New York metropolitan area was E.J. Audi who launched his furniture business in 1928. Of all the fine lines he carried, E.J. Audi had an affinity for what Stickley furniture represented in quality construction, finish, and enduring value. In 1974, Audi's son, Alfred, bought the then-struggling L. & J.G. Stickley.
Stickley furniture is simple and pure. Its sofa sectionals range from small fabric-covered sectionals with chaise lounges to large, custom-made leather sectional sofas. Of course, Stickley is best known for its timeless Mission Collection, and that is well represented with everything from solid oak bedroom furniture to Mission cherry dining rooms. Among Gustav and Leopold Stickley's earliest mission oak furniture designs were comfortable chairs with adjustable backs---the forerunners of the ever-popular leather recliner chairs of today. Stickley is also a destination for those seeking oak office furniture.
Stickley Furniture is distributed out of fourteen showrooms located in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Western Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Colorado. The names of its showrooms may vary slightly, depending on their location and are either called Stickley, Audi & Co., Stickley Furniture, or Stickley Furniture. Stickley designers will visit a customer's home and provide design assistance at no charge.
