Over 50 Years of Serving Ohioans’ Living Room Needs

The owners and leaders of FrontRoom furnishings have a long history of service to Ohio furniture shoppers. Townsend (Towny) Quinn formed Westgate Furniture in Columbus in 1959. He and his sons have been in the furniture business in Ohio over 50 years!

In 1984, Towny began focusing on living and family room products and, along with fellow FrontRoom owner Ken Paul, transformed Westgate Furniture from a furniture store, which carried everything, into The Living Room, “Central Ohio’s first and, at the time, only living room specialists.” The Living Room later became Sofa Express, which grew to be one of the largest furniture chains in the Midwest, before selling the company to one of its largest suppliers.

In 2005, after leaving Sofa Express, and serving their non-compete contracts, the Quinn family and Paul, again teamed up to form FrontRoom furnishings, the living room experts. This was well before Sofa Express (& More) later closed its doors.

Ohio Family-Owned and Accountable


Unlike many furniture stores doing business in Ohio, we’re proud to be an Ohio family-owned business. We’ve lived in, and have been supporting, local communities most or all of our lives. This also makes for accountable ownership.
We’ll work hard to provide you with expert advice on the foremost selection at the best possible values for your home and unsurpassed service before, during and after the sale. If we fail to meet your expectations, reach us at 614-345-0200 or 1-888-876-7632 (SOFA).

FrontRoom now has 3 showrooms in Columbus and a superstore showroom in Springdale, on the north side of Cincinnati. You’ll also love our FIFTY-OFF OUTLET showrooms on both Sawmill Road and Brice Road in Columbus and inside our Tri-County Superstore, for great, one-of-a kind bargains on furniture.

We hope you’ll shop our stores and allow us to show you the FrontRoom difference.
