Luxury for less at the reuse warehouse!

A generous donation of high-end Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman furniture recently arrived at our nonprofit reuse warehouse! These pieces are custom-made and sold to-the-trade.

Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman was established in 1953 in New York city as Lewis Mittman. Now led by Ira Glazer and his sons Joshua and Justin, the company creates their pieces in a 40,000 square foot workshop in High Point, North Carolina. Their fourth- and fifth-generation furniture makers are joined by in-house designers and engineers to create quality customized furniture pieces.

Some of the pieces we received have already sold, but we still have some available at a fraction of their original prices. Check out the collection below and visit the Community Forklift Marketplace for more information! To see the furniture in person, visit the reuse warehouse any day between 12 and 5 pm.
