Our Mission & Values
We are proud to be a locally owned and locally operated furniture store in an age of online shopping and big box stores. Because we recognize the value of small businesses, it’s our mission to work with similar family owned and operated companies. Nearly all of the furniture manufacturers we carry reflect our goals to deliver high quality furniture pieces to our community while supporting other local businesses.
With each item we select, our primary goal for our customers is that they walk away with an incredible piece of furniture at an exceptional value. We will never be the cheapest option for furniture; but that’s because we hope the pieces you choose will last for years to come.
Our companies prioritizes furniture that is beautiful, high quality and long-lasting. Many pieces we carry are North American made and manufactured, as well as made from solid wood. We carry a variety of upholstery fabric that is elegant, but also durable and even machine washable to stand the test of time for you and your family.

A History of Our Company
Our doors first opened in 1976. At the time, our main products were waterbeds and ceiling fans. When current owner Jerome Rackers purchased the store in 1995, Lifestyles began to transition into more actual furniture, with an emphasis on futons and other living rooms items. When Lifestyles moved to its current location in 2008, the new space allowed for more items to be displayed on the showroom floor. What started as a humble waterbed and ceiling fan shop has grown into Columbia’s premier furniture store for those seeking great pieces for a great value.
