When Lloyd Walters first began selling furniture, he did so off the back of his truck at flea markets throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. American Craftsmanship and Quality have always been the primary ideas that drive Lloyd Walters and he has always strived to provide these qualities in the furniture and home goods he offers. Unhappy with the quality of furniture that his suppliers were providing him at the time and dismayed with the fact that the "solid oak" furniture they were producing was largely particle board with veneers or inferior soft woods, Lloyd decided he could do better himself.
With a resolve to provide solid wood furniture that meets his standards of quality, Lloyd rented time in a small woodworking shop in Binghamton, New York. There he began hand-crafting dining room tables from solid oak, that is: real Northern grown solid oak and never particle boards or faux veneers.
With that first solid oak table, Oak Street USA was born. Over time, Lloyd outgrew the back of his truck and opened a destination showroom in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania. He expanded his offerings to the entire home and hired a local craftsmen from the Lehigh Valley to staff his new manufacturing shop in Allentown, Pennsylvania to support the showroom.
As the taste of homeowners has changed, so did Oak Street USA. To meet the demands of the modern homeowners' tastes, Lloyd added solid cherry and solid maple woods to his furniture offerings. In order to compliment this expanded selection of wood, Oak Street USA became Domestic Home Furnishings.
From a small beginning, Domestic Home Furnishings has grown into one of the few remaining furniture manufacturers that still manufactures its products of solid wood, in the United States, by Americans. Today, Domestic Home Furnishings quality, solid wood furniture can be found in homes and fine vacations spots throughout the United States.
Currently, Lloyd shows interested persons his furniture at his factory store in Allentown and is also glad to speak to you on the phone and in your home.
