In a recent article by The Washington Post, the declining quality of modern furniture was brought to the forefront. As a 120-year-old family business, Katz Furniture feels compelled to join the conversation and shed light on the importance of timeless, quality furniture in today’s disposable age.

The Allure of Timeless Furniture

There’s an undeniable charm in furniture pieces that tell a story. Whether it’s a dining table that has witnessed countless family gatherings or a dresser that has been passed down through generations, these pieces become a part of our lives, holding memories and standing the test of time. In contrast, the modern trend leans towards furniture that’s often replaced with the changing winds of fashion, leading to a cycle of disposability.

At Katz Furniture, we’ve always believed in the value of timeless designs. Our collections are curated with an emphasis on durability, craftsmanship, and style that remains evergreen. While trends come and go, the classics remain, offering both aesthetic and functional value.

Why Timeless Trumps Trendy

The digital age, with its rapid dissemination of trends via social media, has conditioned many to seek instant gratification. This extends to furniture, where the allure of a trendy piece might overshadow its longevity. However, investing in timeless furniture has several advantages:

  • Longevity: Classic pieces are designed to last, both in terms of style and durability.
  • Cost-Effective: While the initial investment might be higher, the long-term value derived from a piece that doesn’t need frequent replacement is unmatched.
  • Sustainability: In an age of environmental consciousness, opting for furniture that doesn’t end up in landfills every few years is a responsible choice.

The Environmental and Economic Implications of Disposable Furniture

The shift towards disposable furniture isn’t just a matter of personal choice; it has broader implications. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that nearly 10 million tons of furniture ended up in landfills in 2018. This wastage is not just an environmental concern but also an economic one. The cost of constantly replacing furniture adds up, making the ‘affordable’ choice more expensive in the long run.

Our Commitment to Quality and Craftsmanship

At Katz Furniture, our legacy is built on a foundation of quality and craftsmanship. Our pieces are not just products; they are a testament to our dedication to the art of furniture making. We understand the value of a well-crafted piece, one that can be passed down through generations, much like our own business.

Our commitment goes beyond just selling furniture. We aim to educate our customers, helping them make informed choices that benefit both their homes and the environment. By choosing quality over quantity, we can break the cycle of disposability and move towards a more sustainable future.


In the ever-evolving world of furniture trends, it’s essential to recognize the value of timeless pieces. At Katz Furniture, we’re proud of our legacy and our commitment to offering furniture that stands the test of time. We invite you to explore our collections and discover the true meaning of quality and craftsmanship.
