Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 434-522-0200 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

Founded in 1897, Schewels Home is one of the oldest furniture retailers in the United States. It all started when our ancestor, Elias Schewel, began peddling chairs door to door in Lynchburg, Virginia. Elias expanded his business by allowing his customers to pay back over time, and by serving all members of the community regardless of their race or religion.

Currently, Schewels Home is owned and operated by Marc and Jack Schewel, the fourth generation of the family, and Matt Schewel, the fifth generation.

Our Old Storefront

Over the years, we've grown to 50 locations throughout Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina.

Although many things have changed over time, our mission has stayed the same: to provide affordable home furnishings and exceptional customer service to generations of families.

Our vision is to be the premier destination for home furnishings in the communities we serve - where everyone wants to shop and everyone wants to work.

We have achieved success over the years by adhering to six core values:

1. Integrity: Demonstrate honesty, respect and trust in everything we do.
2. Customer Focus: Go above and beyond to provide an exceptional customer experience.
3. Family: Treat our customers and employees like family.
4. Commitment to Employees: Provide employees with opportunities to grow personally and professionally in an enjoyable work environment with great benefits.
5. Teamwork: Work together for a common goal.
6. Community: Give back to the communities that have made our business great.
