Our History

In 1955, Leonard Swedlow started his career by selling gloves and signs. At this time, he had a small office in old town Pasadena, California. As time passed, the buyers started to request furniture. He never wanted to turn his clients down so he quickly replied, “Absolutely”! As the years passed, the customer list grew, as did the manufacturer list.

In the sixties, he moved the office to east Colorado Blvd in Pasadena. That’s when Leonard’s son, Mark Swedlow started working with the company as a deliveryman. The customer list grew to large Fortune 500 companies. In the 70’s, Mark came on board to work for the company full time. Since then, Swedlows has survived through the ups and downs of the economy. More recently, Mark’s son, Sean Swedlow came on board to help run the company.

The key to our survival is our Clients. We put them and their needs first. Customer service is most important and always remembering where we came from three generations ago.
