Family starts at home, but, a home isn't merely a place; it's a state of mind. It's a place where you feel, safe, valued, appreciated and respected. It's a place where you can learn and grow and live your dreams.
At City Furniture, we've developed a unique company culture based on the values we all share. Together we've created a different type of family and once you've seen what we're all about, we're sure that you'll have found a home for your career; a place where you can be yourself, be successful and grow into the career you've dreamed about.
"I really see this as a family business. It's not Keith's family business, it's not Mike's family business, it's our family business...we want to keep it that way."
Keith Koenig, President, City Furniture
Our company was started with the vision of an entrepreneur and each one of our associates are asked to run the business as if it were their own. Collectively we work for the common good of City Furniture and the customers we serve, driving the growth of our business. When the business grows, we all grow and prosper with it - and that's a great thing.

"I get a kick out of seeing products come to market and seeing people enjoy them. I think it's great that you can enhance somebody's life or their enjoyment of life and I feel quite privileged and honored to be able to do that."
Mike Lennon, Marketing
From the very beginning at Waterbed City, Kevin and Keith Koenig's goal was to educate people on the benefits that waterbeds would have on their lifestyle.
Today, our products have evolved to furniture that touches every member of a family in virtually every facet of their lives. Our goal isn't to simply sell our customers furniture, but to help them to create fresh, new spaces in their home; to help them design their living spaces.
We believe we have a noble purpose: To enrich people's lives and make the world a better place.
From the moment a customer walks through the door, to the moment our truck drives away after delivery and installation, our associates are thrilled to know that the work they are doing is making a positive impact in our customer's lives.
"We have a lot of associate contact. I guess that's what I like about City Furniture. The company is extraordinary in the way it takes care of people like they are family."
Lily Yacoub, Human Resources
"I feel loved, and that's a beautiful thing. From Keith on down, I feel the love. You can see it, when you run into Keith it isn't "Shake my hand," it's "Give me a hug!" And I've never experienced that in any other place I've worked. City's a good place; it stands for something besides what we do. It stands for morals and family. They taught me what family is again."
Burt Shapiro, Customer Service Representative
City Furniture is a great place to work, not simply because of the benefits that we offer, or the focus we have on our associates' development and success. City Furniture is a great place to work because we are truly a family looking out for each other and working towards a common goal: to make City Furniture the Ultimate Furniture Store by enriching people's lives and making the world a better place.
