Since 1940, Regency has crafted stylish furniture for both the home and the office. Regency is family-owned and has grown from the small office products store Scott and Norma Summerville started in 1940, to the manufacturer of high quality business furniture that it is today. Through their growth, Regency has stuck to its roots of providing customers with the personalized and unique service they would find at a single location furniture store while continually growing their product line to compete on a national scale.
Still lead by John Summerville (son of Scott & Norma), Regency is considered a reliable leader in the Ohio area and as they continue to grow their brand, their furniture selection becomes more expansive and elegant. Before we share with you some of our favorite Regency furniture pieces, here is why getting to know Regency is important…they give back to the community. It starts at the top with VP & CFO Aaron Summerville is the founder of the SABOT Support Our Troops Program. Along with Aaron, many of Regency’s employees spend much of their free time giving back to the community. For example, the team donated furniture Lebron James’ Family Foundation I-Promise School which is based in Regency’s home of Akron, Ohio. Without further ado, let us take a look at some pieces of Regency furniture that we love.
A chair made by Regency truly embodies the term “Regency”. The style of furniture known as, “regency”, (not the brand in this case) embraces the period between the 1790s to the 1830s. The Regency period of time is technically 1811-1820 during the time the Prince of Wales acted as regent during his father’s insanity. The wood used during the Regency period was primarily mahogany so you will see a lot of mahogany in pieces crafted by Regency.
