HOM Furniture was founded in 1973 as a small import business. In 1979, The Waterbed Room was born, and soon became the largest retailer of waterbeds in the upper Midwest. By 1994, The Waterbed Room had evolved into two separate specialty stores -- HOM Oak & Leather and Total Bedroom -- and the business continued to grow.
In 1997, HOM Furniture Inc. combined the two formats into a chain of full-line furniture stores which is now HOM Furniture. HOM has been rated one of the top 50 largest furniture retailers in the U.S. since 2001. Currently, there are seven Twin Cities showrooms: Bloomington, Coon Rapids, Lakeville, Plymouth, Rogers, Roseville and Woodbury. Our Coon Rapids facility contains the Showroom, Corporate Offices and our Main Distribution Center under one roof. HOM's family also stretches to eight out-state locations including; Hermantown, St Cloud, and Rochester, MN; Sioux City, IA; Fargo, ND; Sioux Falls, SD; and Eau Claire and Onalaska, WI.
