As one of the world’s largest and oldest privately-owned fine furniture companies, Marge Carson has never wavered from its commitment to delighting its customers: Phenomenal designs; smart and classy marriages of custom fabrics, finishes, and trims; relentless attention to even the smallest of details; designing furniture to meet flexible lifestyles with an unabashed commitment to quality, style, and romance. Our approach and dedication position our upholstery, bedroom, dining room, and occasional furniture as the undisputed preferred furnishing for exclusive clientele.
Since our inception in 1947 we have conceived and crafted furniture for the discerning consumer, one who appreciates a harmonious fusion of color, texture, and design that not only appeals to the senses but provides the elegance and grace befitting luxurious homes.
Ours is a decidingly elegant yet casual look, one with generously proportioned silhouettes upholstered with the finest, most luxurious textiles and showcasing intricate, sculpted, architecturally-based designs that are as exquisite as they are functionally distinguished.
Further defining each individual piece is our ability to customize. Old World or contemporary, formal or relaxed, we offer over 550 distinctive fabrics and leathers and 50 decorative finishes in warm, neutral color palettes. These are complimented with hundreds of exquisite trims and embellishments. Our hardware is custom designed for location and item. Pulls, rings, and knobs are exclusively designed and molded using a mix of materials and metals that transcends the pure function of the piece. Marge Carson protects its designs through United States patents and copyright registrations. Create your unique comfort. Think of it as décor without limits.
From our home office in California, we employ skilled artisans from around the world to hand craft these fine furnishings with devoted attention to every sculpted detail.
In 1947, California-based interior designer Marjorie Reese Carson found herself in a quandary. Brimming with creative ideas for her clients’ posh homes, nobody made the caliber of furniture she needed to bring her designs to life. Unwilling to compromise, and being an entrepreneur at heart, she took matters into her own hands. In this post-war environment she hired two upholsterers and converted an old chicken coop into a custom upholstery shop. This bold move ultimately resulted in the creation of her own furniture lines and decorative upholstery to fill a frustrating void in the residential furniture marketplace.
Marjorie’s relentless commitment to creating fresh, creative and stylish furniture with high-quality craftsmanship quickly earned her the reputation as the proven, exclusive source for creatively fashionable and comfortable upholstery and case goods for fine homes.
By 1953, improved production facilities were established in Rosemead, California, a suburb of Los Angeles, where the offices and factory operated till 2012 when Marge Carson relocated to Pomona, CA. Today Marge Carson, Inc. is privately owned and operated by the LaBarge family, a name known and respected throughout the furniture world for several generations.
Even in the whirlwind of constantly evolving fashions and lifestyles, Marge Carson, Inc. remains true to Marjorie’s founding premise: introducing to the marketplace beautiful designs with impeccable quality, terrific shape and scale and perfectly tailored applications of phenomenal fabrics, trims, finishes and accents.
Today, Marge Carson upholstery, case goods, occasional and accent furniture is available globally in fine furniture retailers and interior design centers.
