After shopping in an over-priced "designer" showroom and being overwhelmed with hundreds of sofa options (that were all basically the same), Darryl and Jessica Sharpton left the showroom mentally fatigued. Adding to their frustration, it would take 4-6 weeks for their new sofa to arrive. As they anxiously waited for their new couch, the entrepreneurial couple began drafting a plan to disrupt this archaic way of buying a sofa.
In 2017, the Sharptons discovered a problem — buying a sofa sucked.
Albany Park was born.
First, Darryl and Jessica set out to eliminate decision fatigue for sofa shoppers. Shoppers didn't need 150 options; so they developed 3 models that collectively satisfied the needs of everyone AND could be delivered to your front door in 3 business days with UPS. This method is not only faster but much more convenient and less expensive — these savings get passed on to Albany Park customers everyday. Albany Park furniture comes packaged in apartment-friendly, space-conscious boxes that can easily be maneuvered in stairwells, tight hallways and throughout any home. Albany Park is radically changing the way people shop for sofas.
Darryl is the co-founder of Albany Park, a digitally-native upholstery brand that offers high-quality, designer furniture at a fair price. Darryl leads product development and marketing strategy. His award-winning designs have redefined the way that people buy sofas for their home.
Jessica was tired of furniture companies that were over-promising and under-delivering. With a passion for solving problems and perfecting design, she leads the operations and logistics -- ensuring every customer receives a product that they love.
Owning quality furniture has never been easier.
