Vanleigh Furniture Company from New York, incorporated in 1927.
Known for excellent quality furniture, Vanleigh sold through interior designers, architects and home furnishing dealers, and offered an array of furniture styles and home accessories for the living room, dining room and bedroom.
Twenty years after Vanleigh was founded, on October 8, 1947, their two-story warehouse, located in Long Island City, New York, was destroyed by an early morning fire. Neighbors reported smoke coming through the basement, and shortly after, flames spread through the building and collapsed the roof.
The first Vanleigh Showroom, located on East 44th Street in New York City, opened in 1964, and others followed; Chicago, Illinois, Bethesda and Rockville, Maryland, and Miami, Florida.
Vanleigh’s New York City lease was not renewed in June 1977. Forced to dispose of their entire inventory, for the first time Vanleigh opened up their doors to the general public. They extended the decorators’ wholesale cost and sold everything down to the bear walls.
