ABODA Furnishings Celebrates 10 Years in Business and in Helping Others

Redmond, Wash., (May 4, 2012)ABODA Furnishings, a retail and rental outlet for gently used furnishings previously used in ABODA Corporate Housing suites, celebrates 10 years of successfully supplying high-quality, stylish furnishings for lease or purchase at hundreds of dollars off retail. In addition, ABODA Furnishings is known nationally for its unsurpassed commitment to donating hundreds of thousands of dollars of its furnishings and housewares to various non-profit charities, disaster relief organizations and local families in need.

Through aggressive pricing, charitable contributions, and recycling efforts, ABODA Furnishings, an offshoot of ABODA Corporate Housing, has successfully reduced their carbon footprint by keeping furnishings and housewares that can no longer be used in corporate apartments out of landfills. In doing so, ABODA is able to recycle over 95% of the waste created in their multiple warehouses.

Additionally, through numerous charitable efforts which tie directly back to ABODA’s community mission statement “…to use their resources and knowledge to provide quality housing for those in need”, ABODA Furnishings has provided comfort for many families that do not have the basics. From donating and shipping containers of furnishings to assist families in need after hurricane Katrina, to donating full furnishings for the families that locally lost everything in the 2011 New Years Eve Sammamish Ridge apartment fires, ABODA is known to step up and give where they can. In addition, ABODA Furnishing works closely with Way Back Inn and furnishes a home yearly for them, has furnished fifteen homes for the International District Housing Alliance, has donated hundreds of TV’s to raise money for the American Cancer society, among many other contributions. 

As a valued retail outlet, ABODA Furnishings attract customers from various walks of life. From first time apartment renters, to professional stagers, to people looking to furnish a second home, ABODA Furnishings is a valued source. “Aside from the local market it’s been fascinating to see how creating value for people has far reaching effects. We have people who buy from us for retirement or second homes and then drive the furnishing to their new homes in Palm Springs or across the country. One woman even bought furniture for her family’s castle in Prague and shipped it there because we offered a better selection and value than she could get in Poland”, states, Marilyn Kempter, Senior Vice President.
