This month, we’re shining the spotlight on one of our favorite manufacturers: Massoud Furniture.
Family-run and made in America, Massoud prides itself on integrity and great customer service. We asked the Collaborative’s resident expert on Massoud to tell us more about why they love to source from this vendor.
Give us a little bit of background on Massoud Furniture. What do they make?
Massoud is family-owned-and-operated for over 50 years. They make beautiful custom upholstery with every style — from very traditional, craved, framed chairs . . . to clean sleek modern sofas . . . and everything in between.
Where are their goods made?
They are American made, and ship from Texas.
Tell us about the quality and price level.
I would put them in the mid-price point, with high quality materials used to make the frames. They offer unique fabrics and leathers. And if you can’t find a fabric in their extensive selection that works for your project, they’re also happy to work with a customer’s own material (COM).
They have plenty of custom options —like wood finishes, nailheads, and trims — that really make your upholstery one-of-a-kind. You can also choose from different seat cushions and back cushions to get the level of firmness that your client prefers.
What do you most appreciate about Massoud?
Massoud is my go-to for upholstery for two key reasons:
The first is that they love interior designers — and that’s not simply lip service with Massoud. They put their money where their mouth is. Massoud was an early champion of The Designers Collaborative, because they recognized its value and they really want to see designers succeed.
The second reason I buy regularly from Massoud is their product. They offer innovative and inspiring options that are very design-forward. The curve of a sleek sofa or a detail that they offer on the back of a chair, for example, and the luscious fabric options from Massoud make it really fun to source from them.
Does Massoud have a product (or products) that you consider a go-to item?
A sofa that would work in almost any home is their Charles Sofa. Its clean lines and comfortable proportions make it a top pick for me.
Do they have a product that you’ve had your eye on, but haven’t had a chance to order yet? Something especially fun or different?
One really unique piece that I’m dying to use is the Elle Sofa. It’s such a cool, asymmetrical piece. But it will require just the right client — someone with more modern taste who’s open to a piece of furniture with a bit of wow factor.
Any final thoughts about Massoud?
Massoud is an all-around great upholstery company that does it all. I can’t recommend them highly enough.Tags: buying group, furniture, interior designer, massoud furniture, the designers collaborative, upholstery, vendor of the month
