Topeka-Based Furniture Company Keeps Customers Satisfied
With many people working from home these days, Vernon Lambright, owner of Comfort Design by Lambright Comfort Chairs, L.L.C. in Topeka, is making sure his customers have comfortable furniture.
“We have seen our business go up 30% since COVID-19 started,” Lambright says. “We have more upholstered furniture orders from coast to coast, which has kept us busy. It has really increased our workload. People are more interested in upholstered furniture than ever before.”
Lambright credits his staff for keeping up with the high demand from loyal customers.
“My sons Jeremiah and Benjamin own 49% of the company now,” Lambright says. “They do a great job. I love having a family-owned and -operated business. We all make sure our customers are satisfied with the furniture they ordered. It’s been that way since we started.”
Lambright says his business has earned a solid reputation with customers who continue to come back since it was founded back in 1998.
“We first began as a metal fab shop,” he says. “We have made changes over time, and we really feel like we can build anything now. We can make steel frames and glider frames. We started learning more, and grew from there. One of the things we always do is really pay attention to details. We get a lot of repeat customers because they are happy with the furniture we have made for them.”
The company makes everything from recliners to assisted-living furniture.
“We have high-quality upholstery furniture,” Lambright says. “We create handcrafted furniture that is not only comfortable, but looks really great too. We get a lot of compliments.”
Lambright says his company carries a Brooklyn line, which includes recliners, love seats and sofas, as well as a Charleston line, which includes chairs, love seats, sofas, and more.
“We also have Classic Cruiser chairs and ottomans,” he says. “Our Hampton and Harrison recliners and love seats are also very high quality.”
Lambright says recreational vehicle (RV) furniture sales have increased recently, with many people looking to hit the road for a vacation.
“I think a lot of people feel better staying in their RVs, rather than staying in motels,” he says. “We have really seen an increase in the purchase of RV furniture, both for work and travel.”
Lambright says his RV products come with a variety of options.
“You can have a computer table put into almost all of the RV units,” he says. “Our tables can be removed very easily, and they are foldable. All of the chair backs are also easy to remove.”
Lambright believes the trend of getting on the road in an RV with new and comfortable furniture will continue.
“I think this is getting really big with families right now,” Lambright says. “It’s been beneficial for a lot of people, and very good for us.”
Lambright is pleased that both his RV and home furniture have increased in popularity through the years. He says his company’s Dutch Boy chairs are his biggest sellers, both for home and RV use.
“Our signature Dutch Boys ship every day,” Lambright says. “We get a lot of orders for those all the time. People really love those.”
For RVs, Dutch Boy Wall Hugger reclining love seats and sofas are just a few of the many options.
Lambright has his own personal favorite piece of furniture.
“The Houston theater-style seat is really nice and comfortable,” he says. “The options are outside levers, electrical control and an inside handle.”
Lambright has nothing but positive words about Topeka.
“People in Topeka are all about their community,” he says. “We have received so much community support since we started. It’s all been great. People in Topeka and the surrounding areas tell their friends about us. This is a wonderful place.”
