Emerson Et Cie

Emerson et Cie had its humble beginnings in 1985, when Marvin Smith first traveled to Italy in search of exciting and unique product for his wholesale designer showroom in San Francisco’s Design Center. With just a few occasional tables and chairs, the company was soon on its way to becoming an important resource for west coast distributors.

In 1996, the company relocated to High Point, NC and the “Furniture Capital of the World” to better serve the needs of all of its buyers. Emerson et Cie utilized the area’s skilled work force. The company’s name has its origin in the French tradition of adding “et Cie” after a proprietor’s name to indicate a family business. Since the middle name of Emerson has been handed down for six generations, the name, Emerson et Cie became the obvious choice.

The pieces created by this prestigious manufacturer are available directly from James Antony. We encourage you to drop by our showroom for complimentary design advice or simply contact us by telephone to shop from the comfort of your own home. We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and look forward to working with you on your next project!
