Madison Furniture is committed to incorporating environmental sustainability in all our business practices and manufacturing processes. We feel it is important to provide well-designed furniture in the most environmentally-responsible way possible.
We build our product to withstand the strenuous environment of the contract world. Our furniture offers strength and durability, and is tailored to meet the needs of use. Hospitality? Durability. Home use? Comfort. Senior? Ease and easy-clean. We use high grade foams and Oregon-grown Alder so that our products to look and feel as good from day one to several years down the road.
We love a challenge here at Madison! Do you have a concept or product you want to build? Bring it to us. Our product line and knowledge has expanded over the years because of our willingness to learn and develop new pieces. We will look at anything and let you know how we can build it.
Robert Cohns, President Emeritus
Favorite quote: “Pinoc, there are two ways to do anything – the right way and the wrong way. If you wanna be right, do things the right way, because if you do things the wrong way, that’s the foolish way, and only fools do things the foolish way, which is the wrong way.” —Jiminy Cricket
In 1994, Madison Furniture was born in a garage on Tanglewood Dr., a quaint neighborhood in Lake Oswego, Oregon. With the help of family members and friends, Robert Cohns set out to use his already 15 years of industry knowledge to build upholstered sofas and chairs, primarily for the retail environment. After only a few months Madison moved into a factory in Tigard, Oregon and began scaling production.
Madison met the contract world in 1999 when we started building furniture for the hospitality industry, which became one of the primary markets. By 2010, Madison built contract furniture for the senior living community and by 2015, we had completed over 150 projects for Emeritus Senior living, who is now Brookdale. Madison Furniture is now heavily rooted in world of contract furniture.
Today, Madison is almost strictly contract, building furniture for hospitality, senior living, universities, office space, and various other commercial businesses.
