Open about menu Sauder Press Release

Sauder values the pioneering resolve of the past, embraces today’s consumer needs, and looks to a future of continuous innovation, design, and value to withstand the test of time.

ARCHBOLD, Ohio — September 22, 2023— Innovation was the bedrock that drove Sauder’s founder, Erie Sauder, to create a revolutionary segment of the American furniture industry – ready-to-assemble (RTA). In honor of his vision, at this October’s High Point market the company celebrates Erie’s induction into the American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame and debuts new product abounding with ingenuity and value.

Erie received the first U.S. patent for a “knock-down” occasional table in 1953. Since that time, a lot has changed in RTA furnishings. What has not changed is Sauder’s drive to find better ways to make, sell, and distribute furniture while providing home-life quality enhancements to today’s consumers. As Erie was known to say, “It’s amazing what you can do when you don’t know it can’t be done!”

“We are very pleased that my grandfather is receiving this honor,” said Kevin Sauder, President/CEO. “He was a pure entrepreneur that really changed the way furniture was made and sold. It’s great to see this humble man honored in the company of industry giants.”

Additionally, the company was selected as a 2023 Pinnacle Design Award finalist by the International Society of Furniture Designers (ISFD). Nominated in two categories, Occasional Table Broad Appeal for a metal/glass coffee table in Sauder’s Coral Cape® collection and Bedroom for Broad Appeal for a mixed material set from Sauder’s Boulevard Café collection. The award winners will be revealed at a ceremony held October 16 in High Point, NC.

Along with these design-recognized items, Sauder is displaying several new collections that appeal to a wide range of tastes and application – including classic farmhouse, coastal grandmother, and soft traditional. Innovative storage options designed to accommodate robotic vacuum units also makes its debut this market.

At High Point Market, Sauder is showcasing:
  • Hillmont Farm™ – A classic office and storage furniture suite featuring an updated farmhouse charm in a warm country-style oak finish.
  • Grand Coast™ – A beach-inspired collection that features vintage aesthetics accented by geometric hardware and light buff finish with woven fabric detail.
  • Sonnet Springs™ – A charming, soft traditional grouping of home office and living room furniture in a time-worn patina.
  • Robotic vacuum furniture – BotStop™ by Sauder is a patent-pending, dedicated function for multi-purpose occasional and storage furniture that allows pieces to stylishly conceal common robotic disc vacuums in any room of the home, without interfering with the automated function.
