McLaughlin’s works hard to ensure that the products in the store represent the company name well and that the company only sells the best of the best.
The three McLaughlin brothers, Don, Dan and Ken, started working with their father’s now 64-year-old business, McLaughlin’s Home Furnishing Designs, back in the early 1980s. The trio was born and raised Downriver, and 64 years ago McLaughlin’s opened as a carpet store.
McLaughlin’s opened in Lincoln Park before moving to Southgate. Today the home furnishings store offers two additional locations in Novi and Utica. The business carries over 20 well-known brands, such as Bassett, Smith Brothers, Vaughan-Bassett, and more. Over the last 10 years, McLaughlin’s has become metro Detroit’s exclusive dealer of Bassett and Smith Brothers pieces as well as the exclusive Bassett HGTV brand suppliers. The store also continues to carry wall-to-wall carpet as well as a huge assortment of area rugs.
“We obviously expanded our footprint,” Don says. “We like to think of ourselves as carrying quality at a fair price.”
The three brothers all attended college and studied a number of subjects from finance to business, and Don even played hockey at Bowling Green State University. Ken works as the president and CPA of the company while Dan and Don work on the business and marketing side of the business. The three brothers and their team of talented design and sales professionals work hard to continue providing metro Detroit with quality pieces.
Quality, after all, is important to the brothers. According to Don, there are very few furniture stores in Michigan that still sell American-made products. McLaughlin’s works to ensure that the products in the store represent the company name well and that the company only sells the best of the best. Don, Dan, and Ken also strive to support other local businesses to build up the community.
The McLaughlin’s stores offer brands, styles, and colors that fit all family types, whether one is looking for a big sectional that’s durable enough for an active lifestyle or a looking for a wooden desk to class up the home office.
