Habing Furniture

Originally established in 1898 as both a furniture and casket store, Habing Furniture has been successful throughout four generations of family ownership.

B. G. Habing and his uncle John Eggerman started out fashioning handmade caskets along with household furnishings. Today, brothers Jerry Habing and David Habing run the business along with their sister, Sarah, and nephew, Jake Habing.

Habing Furniture has maintained a steady volume of sales despite continued fluctuations in the furniture industry. To offset the disruption in furniture foot traffic caused by online shopping, Habing Furniture has expanded its offerings in the flooring market.

Even though more than half of their market is through carpet, hardwood, linoleum, vinyl sheeting and vinyl tile, David mentioned that is a specialty service customers are surprised to learn they offer. An area that has really taken off is their line of luxury vinyl, which is not affected by moisture, resists fading and comes in a wide array of incredibly realistic applications.

Striving to build strong relationships with their customers Habing Furniture offers free estimates, measuring and delivery to customers within a 30-40 mile radius. In addition, they also provide plenty of high quality product options with popular brands such as Armstrong, Shaw, Mohawk, Lane, Marshfield (replacement for Mastercraft), Southern Motion, Liberty Bedroom and Serta.
