Celebrate Memorial Day this year with world known, American-made reclining furniture by Southern Motion.

History in the Making

Southern Motion was founded in Pontotoc, MS in 1996. It currently employs more than 1,200 people at five facilities totaling 600,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehousing space. The company not only contributes to the furniture industry, but the American workforce as well.

"Southern Motion's commitment to the local community and the state of Mississippi is remarkable," Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said. "Over the years, Southern Motion has created hundreds of jobs for the residents of north Mississippi, and I thank the company for providing even more opportunities for the workforce of Prentiss County."

Southern Motion manufactures motion furniture, including recliners, sofas and loveseats, sectionals and home theater furniture. It is one of the largest furniture manufacturers in Mississippi and is well known throughout the USA. Each component of the furniture made by Southern Motion is produced by southern craftsmen/women.

It's a Southern Affair

"Due South" means something different to Southerners than it does to the rest of the world. The creak of a rocking chair on the front porch - an unhurried afternoon following Thanksgiving Dinner - the bone-deep comfort of family and friends gathered to cheer their favorite team on to victory.

That's the feeling Southern Motion builds into every piece of furniture. They aim to share the perfect harmony of life found on the back roads of Southern culture. It's the kind of comfort you can sink into, an attitude about living, a place one longs to stay - A serenity and oasis at the end of every long, hard day.

Built in the South by American craftspeople. Southern Quality. Southern Comfort.
