Dedicated to Excellence for over 70 Years

Laughridge Furniture was the dream of Jim Laughridge, who in 1934

opened up a furniture store in Marion, and set the standard for customer service,

and for offering high quality items at a price his neighbors could afford.
The family business grew over forty years to include Jim's sons Landis and Phillip,

and son-in-law Pat Davis, who continued the tradition and philosophy of serving our

neighbors' needs as trends, fashion, and technology changed throughout the decades.
Today, third generation owners Dan Davis and Marc Perez are just as

committed today to servicing your needs as the first day the doors of

Laughridge Furniture opened all those years ago.

Today, we offer over 30,000 square feet of in-stock items

in our three showrooms that cover two blocks of the Historic Downtown Marion District
