Broyhill is one of the oldest and best known American brands and has a high level of name recognition. It started manufacturing furniture in 1905 and continued to grow into its present form with an extensive product line that includes both residential and contract divisions.
Broyhill manufactures upholstery furniture and case goods in the mid-price point. It offers a vast variety of styles and collections for every room in the home and compares to Lane and La-Z-Boy in price and quality. Broyhill products are priced below brands such as Ethan Allen and Hendredon.
Broyhill's Products and How to Buy
Broyhill, which is headquartered in Lenoir, North Carolina, manufactures furniture for the entire home and has been doing so for close to a century. It offers an extensive choice in both upholstery and case goods. Broyhill offers furniture for the living room, dining room, bedroom, home office, entertainment and kids rooms. Outdoor furniture is also available.
The manufacturer does not sell directly to consumers through dedicated stores like Thomasville or Lane which are also part of the Furniture Brands International family. You can buy Broyhill furniture from retailers nationwide. Broyhill furniture is also sold in about 35 other countries all over the world.
If you want to explore what the company offers, it is best to check out their website as the company does not send out catalogs to consumers. You will find images and details along with a suggested price for the product. Please note that this is just a guideline, and prices will vary depending on the retailer. You can search for dealers in your own area by using the website's location search feature which is conveniently placed on all pages.
Sofa prices start at around $999.00, while dining tables start at around $499 and chairs at around $179.
Broyhill has distribution centers on the East Coast and the West Coast for quick shipment, allowing orders to be filled within a reasonable amount of time.
Some New Broyhill Lines
One of the best selling lines from previous years was Fontana, and while that has been discontinued, Broyhill recently introduced Bryson which is an updated take on it.
Bryson, a casual traditional group started out with a bedroom and has expanded to include dining room pieces, an entertainment console, occasional tables and other upholstery pieces. Bryson draws on look that is familiar and warm and fits into a variety of interiors. Pine solids and veneers are used. The collection features bun feet, raised panel drawers and wooden knobs. Chairs are available in both wooden and upholstered seats. Bryson upholstery choices include a sofa, loveseat, chair and a half and ottoman. These pieces also feature bun feet to coordinate with the tables and consoles in the collection.
Another recent introduction is the Abbott Bay bedroom collection. This collection features russet brown oak veneers accented with antique-inspired pewter hardware and framed moldings. The bed is the most striking piece from this collection.
Perspectives, another recent introduction is a contemporary, Asian-inspired collection distinguished by a graphite finish, chrome hardware and fretwork details. This collection is more modern looking compared to the other two. It offers a small footprint and functionality such as storage features in headboards and a dining table with two sliding top panels that hide silverware storage compartments. Nightstands come with task lighting and cord management.
Broyhill lets you customize your sofas, love seats and chairs, as well as dining room pieces.
While you can experiment with customization on Broyhill's website, it is not possible to order online. Your best option is to visit a retailer and work with them to order what you need. You will also get a better sense of what you will get in the end, because actual fabrics, colors or wood finishes are generally different from what you see on the screen, not just for Broyhill, but for all furniture in general.
The Green Factor
Instead of making specific pieces that are green, Broyhill has integrated sustainable elements into all of its upholstered furniture. All Broyhill upholstered furniture offers frames that are built from wood that comes from Sustainable Forestry Initiative sources. Springs are made from 100% recycled steel, and the cushions use soy-based foam, while pillows and back cushions are made from recycled plastics. Fabric selections include re-purposed cotton fabric to help cut down on the use of dyes and other chemicals.
Broyhill has consistently offered reasonable prices and quality over the years which has contributed to the brand's longevity and popularity.
