Our Legacy

Burton James / Our Legacy

Since its inception over three decades ago, Burton James has earned a reputation as a preferred resource for the interior design trade. Based just outside of Los Angeles in Southern California, their uniquely American success story was launched with a mission to deliver quality, bench-made furniture to homes and businesses nationwide. This mission – in partnership with a steadfast commitment to outstanding customer service – has since become the cornerstone of the Burton James story.

Under the direction of President Ray Zoref, Burton James’ market reach has evolved to include an extensive network of sales representatives partnering with design professionals and “Trade” showrooms throughout the United States, an impressive roster of private label partnerships, and numerous retail outlets supporting the direct-to-consumer market. Through a sea of advances in manufacturing and technology, Burton James has retained their commitment to local sources, pride in the products they deliver, and the people who produce them.

The Burton James team continues to answer the industry’s call for innovation, quality, and responsiveness. From their popular “Quick Ship” program to a fresh take on modularity with the “Habitat” collection, Burton James sectionals, sofas, and occasional seating continue to define the meaning of “Casual Elegance.”

On April 1, 2024, the Burton James brand joined the Made Goods’ family of brands consisting of Made Goods, Pigeon & Poodle and Blue Pheasant. The family of brands (founded in 2008 by Chris DeWitt and Oscar Yague), is a privately owned and founder-led company located in City of Industry, California. Made Goods designs, sells, and distributes luxury home décor to interior designers, as well as boutique and luxury retailers globally. With five permanent showrooms across the country, the Made Goods family of wholesale brands includes Pigeon & Poodle (home and bath accessories), Blue Pheasant (handcrafted tabletop products), and now Burton James (upholstered furniture).

What is happening?

Chris DeWitt and Oscar Yague have purchased the assets of Burton James to add to their existing family of brands. This does not mean the same as purchased the company, as the prior Burton James company is in the process of liquidation. Made Goods intends to invest in the Burton James brand across the board including overall processes, quality improvements, fabric and shape options, sales tools, website updates etc. We are all very excited about what this will mean for you and your upholstery needs.

Tell me more about Made Goods and other brands in the family?
