About Us

April 6, 2016

Dedicated. Experienced. Remarkable.

Soft Touch Furniture® has been delighting customers for more than 40 years, combining an uncompromising commitment to quality products with a steadfast focus on getting our clients, both small and large, exactly what they want.

From our Girard, Ohio manufacturing facility, we serve the entirety of the United States, providing restaurants, hotels, other commercial entities, and even some residential clients with exceptional furniture that fully meets their needs. Our designs are both contemporary and classic, our build quality is world-class, and we are completely capable of custom products if that’s what you desire. We also handle refurbishing and reupholstering.

Our clients enjoy the best of both worlds—an interested, quality furniture builder, with direct-from-manufacturer pricing. We also handle the entire project; from initial design (if needed) to build to delivery to installation…we even own our own trucks and employ the drivers and installers. We’re your true business partner, completely invested in your project and satisfaction from start to finish.

Founded by Bob and Terrie Chudakoff, Soft Touch Furniture’s dedicated employees reflect the attention to detail and genuine care for people that their founders express every day. From the skilled craftspeople that build the furniture to the designers and warehouse staff to everyone else, you can be assured of working with professionals who truly care about delivering more than you expect.

We’re also a little old-fashioned in some respects. A real person actually answers the phone, and we treat people exactly how we’d like to be treated. When inevitable complications arise, we take ownership of them, allowing a fast, logical solution that doesn’t need 12 layers of approval. Our customers love working with us.

You can have it all—great commercial furniture made in the USA, exceptional “real people” customer service, and a price that reflects true value.

We’re proud of our state-of-the-art 90,000 sq. ft. facility. We’ve been at this location since 1999 (when increased sales dictated we needed the space), and have continually upgraded and shaped it to reflect our offerings. Our campus is clean, modern, secure/monitored, and always buzzing with positive activity.

We utilize current technology and quality machinery, combined with a healthy dose of good old fashioned elbow grease, to ensure operations are efficient and meet our high standards. Our team includes dedicated and experienced professionals operating in the following departments:

    • Assembly
    • Manufacturing
    • Upholstery
    • Finishing


We also have a showroom onsite, and always welcome visitors. If you are in the area, drop on by and someone will be happy to give you a tour.

We’ve Gone Green, because we feel it’s an important, earth-changing investment.

Regardless which side of the climate debate you are on, it’s clear that there’s no downside to trying to be a better environmental partner. Even if all one accomplishes is simply “less waste”, that’s a solid goal (and we do a lot more than just generate less waste).

To give an example, we’ve invested heavily in Refurbishing and Reupholstering technologies and services. Because doing such is RECYCLING. Reupholstering or refurbishing your furniture can be less costly, but more importantly you help us do our part for future generations to live in a cleaner, safer environment. Less resources, less trees used, less garbage… everyone wins. Why throw away or burn your old furniture when we can offer a service that will save you stress and money and, in a small way, help protect our planet?

In 2007 alone, we reupholstered or refurbished over 50,000 pieces of furniture. This not only saved our clients’ money, we lessened the overall “manufacturing footprint” that building new would have caused (of course, we build plenty of new furniture too, but we’ll always discuss refurbishing when possible, especially if the furniture’s “bones” are solid.)

In addition to refurbishing, we also take pride in using ONLY spray adhesives that have been certified for indoor air quality. Our adhesives emit low VOCs, produce very little waste, and are self-contained, using no additional air to spray. They are also SCAQMD Compliant (South Coast Air Quality Management District, with some of the toughest standards in the US).

Green – From Us to You
We’re also proud to offer environmentally-friendly upholstery components with our custom seating products. We allow our clients the option of using eco-friendly upholstery fabrics, and recycled and/or natural foam for custom booths, seat cushions and window seats. So if you wish, you can Go Green along with Soft Touch!

Our Green upholstery options include:

  • 100% natural latex foams
  • 100% natural fiber foams
  • 100% recycled polyester fabrics
  • Other eco-friendly fabrics (always changing – just ask!)
