Company History and Community Involvement

Mr. Emanuel Blaugrund, founder of American Furniture Company, came to Albuquerque in the 1930's with hopes of establishing a high-quality, first-class furniture store; one he would be proud of; one offering value to customers at all price levels. He achieved his goal in 1936 when the first American Home store was opened at 212 Central Avenue SW.

Fourteen years later, a larger store was built on 4th Street NW. Continued growth created a need for more space.  In 1968 the flagship store was built and still stands today on the corner of Menaul and Carlisle.  Since then, American Home has expanded to four stores across New Mexico.

Community Leadership and Support

American Furniture recognizes the importance of supporting community issues and organizations. We believe that what our company gives makes our community stronger.

Many members of our Management team have played integral roles in the Albuquerque Community Foundation, the Retail Division of the United Way campaign, the National Hispanic Cultural Center and the Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute. Each year, American staff members give time, merchandise and cash contributions to many organizations including New Day Shelters, Youth Development Inc., Catholic Social Services, All Faiths Receiving Home and various PTA's, churches, schools and civic organizations.
