From Local Sources
Clement “Clem” M. Lange, co-founder and chairman of Best Chairs Inc/Best Home Furnishings, will be inducted into the American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame on Oct. 20 during the High Point Market in High Point, North Carolina.
He’s one of four inductees that day. Others include Jake Jabs, president and CEO of American Furniture Warehouse; Paul Maitland-Smith, founder of Maitland-Smith Ltd.; and Jim McIngvale, founder and owner of Gallery Furniture.
“Induction into the Hall of Fame is the home furnishings industry’s highest honor,” said David Gebhart, president of the American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame Foundation board of directors. “Our new honorees represent innovative approaches to retail and domestic manufacturing as well as high-end design and global sourcing.”
Lange built Best Chairs Inc/Best Home Furnishings on the principal to create the best quality product at the most affordable price and to do it more efficiently than the competition.
With more than 2,400 styles and options in more than 800 fabrics and leathers, orders are produced in five working days.
A technology leader, Lange computerized manufacturing operations in the 1970s. In the 1990s, a new high-tech computer system and the launch of Best Chair Transit further shortened deliveries of its swivel rockers and gliders; stationary and motion sofas, loveseats and chairs; upholstered benches and occasional tables.
