Since 2000, Resource Furniture has imported and distributed inspired, modern space-saving furniture from the finest and most innovative European designers.
Resource Furniture is the exclusive North American distributor of Clei, manufacturer of the finest wall bed systems available in the world. Clei has been the global leader in transforming furniture design and manufacturing for more than 50 years, and continues to revolutionize the industry. Far removed from the 20th century “Murphy Bed”, Clei designs and manufactures a comprehensive Living System which is so proven over five decades of research and development that Resource Furniture provides a Lifetime Warranty on all of Clei’s mechanisms.
Modern, modular and customizable, the space-saving Living and Young Systems encompass more than 40 models of wall beds, bunk beds, freestanding sofa/wall-bed systems, closet and storage systems, and work space solutions – all for kids, teens and adults.
With showrooms in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary, and Mexico City, Resource Furniture is now the largest and most comprehensive source for cutting-edge living solutions and is creating a global paradigm for living in multi-functional environments.
Our commitment to sponsoring non-profit and educational initiatives will continue to redefine the way consumers and designers think about space far into the future.
OUR CULTURE AND THE SHOWROOM EXPERIENCE
Real people answer the phone. Mariel answers your email.
We value every person that calls or emails us. You will never get a machine or a phone system unless we are closed. We answer every email personally – 99% are answered within 24 hours.
When you come to any of our showrooms our first job is to ascertain your needs. What room are you working on? What would you like to be doing in that space that your current furniture isn’t suitable for? How do you want your space to work harder? We know that’s why you’re here. We encourage you to bring a floor plan of your space, no matter how roughly drawn. A floor plan and measurements will allow our experts to present exactly the right solutions for your needs and your space. With such a broad range of space-saving and transformable products, we will work with you to find exactly what suits your purpose.
Yes, we do online sales – but the good news is that our online sales are far from anonymous - you get to work with a real, live person who looks forward to solving your square foot challenge. We want to discuss your needs, your style, your timing and your budget. We are ‘old-school’ in this because we want you to make sure that you get the products that are exactly right for you – now and into the future. After all, with our Lifetime Warranty we will be in a ‘relationship’ for a long time!
Every member of the Resource Furniture team across North America is committed to providing a purely customer-focused experience. Because above all, it’s about what you need – not about what we can sell you.
We really look forward to you visiting one of our showrooms in person where we promise you will have an unparalleled furniture experience – no video or photos can possibly show the exceptional quality and ease of use our products offer. Plus, it’s sure to be entertaining and Space. Reinventing.
Resource Furniture LLC
Ron Barth & Steve Spett
Some partnerships just work better than others. Starsky & Hutch, Bert & Ernie, Wyle E. Coyote & Road Runner . . . Ron & Steve. For more than a decade, they have built Resource Furniture from a single room to a global brand, opening five new Resource Furniture showrooms in 2011 alone. With 100% commitment to client satisfaction, 100% dedication to quality, and 100% assurance that the hard work is also enjoyable, this is only the beginning.
Design Director/Hand Holder
Challie is our very own Wonder Woman - dashing to clients' apartments in the nick of time to save them from the evils of puce, florescent lighting and doors that open into each other. She thinks out of the box, and keeps a stack of creative solutions in her back pocket at all times. She is our go-to girl with any questions about anything aesthetic. And she’s always right. Keep that in mind.
Director of Marketing/Resident Mastermind
Lisa almost comes from Kentucky. In Kentuckagueese, LISA means “woman with many hands”. She’s been seen working with clients in the showroom, writing press releases, creating new and exciting advertising. As reformed Subway fan, Lisa is now an Atkins advocate (sorry Jared).
Kirk “Get ‘er Done” Schuly
No stairwell is too narrow, no custom order is too crazy for backpack-toting Kirk - whether it’s convincing the delivery guys to walk up those six flights of stairs no one mentioned or figuring out that the ceiling is 2” lower than the furniture BEFORE the order is placed, Kirk is everyone’s hero. He needs a cape.
Scheduling installations, rescheduling installations when no one is home, processing orders, processing the changed orders when Kirk finds out that the ceiling is too low, buying pretzels, navigating the maze of international customs - Micaela does it all with a smile and a kind word. She’s a freak. And we love her.
Sales Expert/Resident Know-It-All
Jake, in fact, does know everything. It’s irritating and invaluable at the same time, which is confusing, yet comforting. If you have a 3’ x 5’ room and need to sleep 14 people, Jake could definitely figure out how to fit in two more. Go ahead - just try to stump him.
Sales Expert/Resident Canadian
Christine makes every day a reason to come to work. Her experience, humor and insight are off the charts. If you have a 3’ x 5’ room and need to sleep 14 people, Christine would have that floorplan done, colors selected, the site measured and the order in production before you leave the showroom. And then she’d have you over for cocktails.
Mariel personally answers every inquiry from every person in every country every day. It’s exhausting even watching her. She knows which beds will support a 3-person pillow fight (answer: all of them, but the question was frankly way funnier than the answer) and she knows how long something will take to ship to Yugoslavia. (Answer: not as long as you would think for a country that doesn’t exist anymore). A diehard equestrian and likely dressed in black, Mariel wins for most colorful personality.
Marketing and Sales Assistant
Emily is a Southern girl without a Southern accent. She is now a New Yorker, which we are very happy about. She can make a perfect AutoCAD drawing out of 6 feet of yarn and a handful of Tic-Tacs, and will answer every single question you can think of with a smile. Even on Saturday at 5:05 pm.
Sales Expert/Resident Smarty Pants
Winning the award for most educated, Jennifer knows what she’s talking about. In addition to her Masters in Interior Design from Pratt, she has a Masters in International Business and formerly worked on Wall Street (I know, right?). Not only is her insight adored by both us and clients alike, her funky sock collection is top notch.
IT Director/Showroom Phantom
Hailing all the way from Georgia (yes, that one) Maia is an IT superhero. From slow browsers to the blue screen of death, she has unbeatable IT intuition. We used to think we had a mysterious doodler on our smartphones and whiteboards, but we have cracked the case! – it was Maia.
