Opened in 1914 by E.R. Brown, ER Brown Furniture is now in its 104th year of successful operation! The furniture legacy, carried on through the years by E.R.’s descendants and their spouses, is known for its loyal customers, friendly, long-time staff, and service after the sale. A blending of the old and new has emerged as the fourth generation great-grandsons have brought youth, energy, and furniture product knowledge to the business and its customers.
Mr. E.R. Brown opened ER Brown Furniture in 1914 in its current location. Second generation brothers Bud and Warren Brown ran the business for 35 years, and Warren’s ingenious idea of advertising West Frankfort as the “The Furniture Capital of Southern Illinois” caught on and remains a well-known logo to this day. In 1955, the Browns remodeled their original house across the street (formerly the Carson Hotel), turning it into an attractive and beautifully furnished display home called The Maple House. This forward-thinking concept allowed customers to envision furniture room settings in their own homes.
ER Brown Furniture truly is a unique blend of old and new. During the past 25 years, there have been five expansions and a major remodeling project that highlights the original, beautifully restored hardwood floor, old brick wall, and tin ceiling, along with the famous vintage cash register that has been used since the Great Depression!
Sloan Brown, grandson of E.R., has been at the helm since 1978 and has established a reputation of trust and service after the sale. This trust is proven by loyal customers who come to us for all their furniture needs. The store also offers free, in-house 12-month financing, which generations of loyal customers have used to furnish and update their homes’ interiors.
In 2010 Sloan’s son Kyle joined the business after graduating from SIU-Carbondale. Having grown up with his brother Matt in the furniture store sliding down the warehouse chute, sweeping floors, and delivering furniture, Kyle, as manager of ER Brown Furniture, brings a wealth of knowledge to the family business and can be found just about anywhere, from assisting customers with their home furnishings selections to organizing warehouse freight.
The store displays beautiful, quality home furnishings by reputable furniture brands for every room in the home, with over 25,000 square feet of furniture display, in addition to a huge warehouse, all ready for immediate delivery to your home. ER Brown’s trusted, longtime sales and delivery staff will assist in selecting and delivering your furniture into your home – all with a friendly smile and guaranteed satisfaction.
ER Brown Furniture has proven its longevity with loyal customers who return year after year for their home furnishing needs and just to say “hi.” Visit ER Brown Furniture and meet the family. We love home furnishings, we love our community, and we would love to help you transform your house into a home! West Frankfort . . . “THE FURNITURE CAPITAL OF SOUTHERN ILLINOIS.”
