Started in 1962 as B&D Sales by Bond and Doug Shippy, the company distributed bed frames and unfinished furniture. In 1974, George Ritchie (a company representative at that time) purchased the business. The company was incorporated in 1977 and continued to grow, adding a number of additional product lines. In 1986, Evan Ritchie purchased the company from his father, starting a whirlwind of growth. In 1990, Evan purchased a mattress factory, Perfect Rest Bedding, and in 1993 he added an import division known as Emerald Home Furnishings. In March of 2002 ownership changed; new owner David Beckmann, CEO, currently leads the Emerald team.
Today, the operation occupies a 200,000 square-foot building in Tacoma, Wash., that houses the corporate offices, a showroom, the distribution center, and mattress manufacturing facilities. Also, a 200,000 square-foot facility in New Albany, Miss., that stores upholstery and case goods in its warehouse, and offers a showroom available by appointment to industry professionals.
