Traditions Furniture began in Wichita in September of 1984 when we opened a small space at the corner of Douglas and Hillside Avenues.
At the time we carried a line of Amish made furniture called Tom Seely, now Gat Creek. Semi-trucks rolled in once a month, and the family, wife, mother-in-law, and sister would unload the trucks once a month, rain or shine. Those were the good old days. But time passes and with time comes change.
Today, we are bigger and better with two stores to serve you.
In Wichita we are located in the quaint neighborhood of College Hill, part of the Douglas Design District. In Overland Park, we are in the historic Strang Carbarn in the heart of Downtown Overland Park.
We are the exclusive dealer for Stickley Furniture in Kansas. And, in addition carry lines such as Stressless recliners, Century Furniture, Vanguard, Sherrill, Nichols & Stone, Charleston Forge, and more.
If it is good, we’ve got it.
I like to think we have become a destination for discriminating buyers. Our staff is friendly and informative. We go out of our way to make sure your home looks beautiful.
Still crazy after all these years, is one thought that comes to mind. My wife and I have been in the business of making homes a little brighter for now on thirty years. How we got here is a story in itself, but we have enjoyed it and that is why we are still at it after all these years.
And that, I suppose, is why we are still here after all these years.
Thanks to Paul Simon and his lyrics. Incidentally, my wife actually met Paul in New York City many years ago at the Ralph Lauren store. It was crazy, she was coming in and he out and they ran into each other.
