New line

Samsen Furniture and Norwalk Furniture in Norwalk, Ohio are partnering to open a showroom of exclusive Norwalk Furniture featuring 18 room settings. The latest in fashion trends will be showcased along with a wide selection of upholstery styles.

Norwalk Furniture offers more than 850 fabrics and leathers and customizable options. Customers can select style, fabric, leg color and have it delivered in 35 days. All Norwalk upholstery styles are made in the USA.

Samsen Furniture’s gallery adds a multitude of designs including hundreds of fabrics and leathers with new combinations of color, pattern and texture.

Norwalk Furniture suffered from the economic down turn during 2008 and the company got into difficulty. Twelve local families banded together at the height of the 2008 recession and would not let Norwalk Furniture fail. These families are still the present owners of the company, which is now named Norwalk Custom Order Furniture, dba Norwalk Furniture.
