Being an active part of the community is an important part of Reid’s Fine Furnishings’ philosophy as a business. We take pleasure in giving back and consider it an honor to be able to help others.
An example of this spirit of philanthropy can be seen in our involvement with the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine (VTCSOM) and Research Institute in Roanoke. We recently provided a “Stressless seating” area to the school, donating two Stressless sofas for students to relax in during their downtime.
“The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine does great things for our community,” said Reid’s owner Bill Waide. “We need to support it and this was one way to show that – by providing a comfortable space for these hard-at-work students to study or relax.”
The Reid’s Fine Furnishings team made the trip to High Point, North Carolina in April for the 2018 Spring High Point Furniture Market. While there, we stocked up on design ideas and invested in new inventory that is sure to turn heads! We also selected a few one-of-a-kind antiques, including pieces from France and Germany.
These new items should be arriving to our showroom in late June.
