Corvallis Furniture was created by local college students with the goal of providing students and residents with an affordable solution for furniture needs while reducing the amount of good usable furniture destined for the landfill.
Year after year we’ve all witnessed the streets of Corvallis get flooded with unwanted furniture because people are on a deadline to move out. In 2011, we began helping other students by hauling away unwanted furniture and restoring items for re-use. We quickly learned there was a huge need for our service and began working with local property managers and sustainability groups to spread the word about our services.
We would not have been able to sustain this project without the many hours of help from family, friends, and volunteers as well as the numerous referrals and support from local businesses and organizations that include Habitat ReStore, McDonald Upholstery, PK Furniture Repair, Tee’s & More, and the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition.
Corvallis Furniture offers a wide selection of new, used, and upcycled furniture. We have expanded our operation to 10000 sq. ft. of retail/warehouse/workshop space carrying popular brands (Ashley, Coaster, Emerald) of new furniture for every room in the home. Our non-commissioned sales staff share our vision of reducing the number of items destined for the landfill and enjoy painting and restoring items for reuse. Several times per term we offer free classes to teach others how to repair and rehab furniture.
Used and unwanted furniture:
While we have expanded to sell new furniture, we can still take your unwanted furniture. Please contact us to arrange a pick-up or bring your unwanted items (in good or easily repairable condition) to our shop during business hours. While we are a for-profit organization, please know that we provide this service to benefit the community and to help pay our tuition bills. If you are interested in helping us continue our project or just want to learn more about the services we provide, please stop by our store at 1810 SW 3rd St, or contact us at 541-286-4658.
Items we typically prepare for re-use:
Dressers, Nightstands, Bed frames, Bunk/Loft Beds, TV/Microwave Stands, Desks, Chairs, Bookcases, Coffee and End tables, Dining Tables and Chairs, Storage Trunks, Mini-Fridges, Microwaves, Lamps, and other Household items. We also accept workshop items such as leftover interior latex paints, wood stains, sand paper, drawer/cabinet hardware, and even parts and pieces of wood furniture that can be used to create a new “upcycled” piece of usable furniture. At this time, we are not taking upholstered items such as sofas, recliners, etc.
