The Majestic Furniture Company is an American furniture manufacturer based in California.

Description

The Majestic Furniture Company was founded in 1924 in California, by Gabe Goldberg, and has since been run by four generations of the same family.

The first items sold by Goldberg and his step son were refurbished pieces of furniture retrieved from hotels which they had refurnished.

During the Depression, they tapped into the market for high-quality used furniture, and expanded to sell refurbished household goods, lamps and accessories. The stated aim of the company is to produce fine furnishings at an affordable price, with an emphasis on style and comfort.

However, they became increasingly aimed at the upper end of the market.

Guide For Collectors

The Majestic Furniture website showcases the products currently available at the main showrooms in Modesto. The site lists the manufacturers whose goods are supplied. They also offer a room-design facility, using their own interior designers.

The company supply a catalogue on request, but there is no facility for online sales. The characteristic look of furniture sold by Majestic is a blend of modern, traditional and luxurious. Quality is considered to be high and high prices reflect this.

Customer reviews on sites such as Insider Pages are mixed, with praise for quality, but reservations about the cost.
