Southern Motion / Fusion Furniture is committed to the health and safety of our employees. We are taking all CDC-recommended steps to ensure a safe working environment. We continue to practice social distancing, wear masks, and use other “best practices” to help protect our team members. We are continuing to produce and ship orders to customers around the country as quickly as we can, however, please expect some production and shipping delays. Due to several factors - including extreme furniture demand, delays in our raw material supply chain, and shipping delays, we are experiencing extended lead times.

Thank you for your patience and understanding in this unprecedented time.
