American Signature Helps a Military Veteran

So the last thing to go into the Lunt’s home —new furniture from American Signature. Their motto is Everyone Deserves a Well Furnished Life, and they are certainly living up to it lending a helping hand to a wounded warrior who served his country for all of us. They are providing furnishings for all the main areas of the townhouse. For the living room, American Signature is giving something both Ashley and Stephen selected; a Burnham Living Room Sofa.

There will be two Grandin end tables and a cocktail table working with the sofa. And then to top it all off, a Jensen Entertainment TV Stand finished in cherry, showing off the attractive wood grain, using classic moulding, adds a definite touch of elegance. For the bedroom, Ashley and Stephen selected the Ashworth Bedroom Collection, and for the dining room; a selection from the Harbor Pointe Collection. The transformation is amazing, as the furnishings add so much atmosphere.

Furnishing Home of Purple Heart Hero

Comfortable furniture for a deserving vet will certainly contribute to a welcoming home where the family can gather to create great memories.

What makes a house a home? Comfortable furniture certainly contributes to a welcoming home where the family can gather to create great memories.

Adding new furnishings can enhance any home’s function and design…. and that’s exactly what American Signature wanted to provide for a deserving military family.

This past summer, American Signature joined forces with the Designing Spaces team for the “Designing Spaces of Hope – Military Makeover” to help renovate the Summerville S.C. townhouse of a family of a wounded veteran, Stephen Lunt, who sacrificed for our nation.

Their motto is “Everyone Deserves a Well Furnished Life”, and they are certainly living up to it lending a helping hand to the Lunt family.

For their dream home, Ashley and Stephen selected these pieces from American Signature which they generously donated:

  • Burnham Living Room Sofa
  • Covered in mahogany colored leather with a soft and smooth touch
  • Handcrafted in Italy by master artisans
  • Loose, feather blend cushions are plush and stylish
  • The leather gains character over time, developing unique markings and color variations that enhance its natural beauty

By combining old world craftsmanship with modern design, the Burnham allows you to relax and unwind in luxurious, on-trend comfort.

Also generously donated to enhance other spaces in the home:

  • Two Grand in Collection end tables and a cocktail table – made from 100 percent recycled fir timber, and polished bluestone rock top, a pairing that combines to make a stately addition to the living room
  • Jensesn III – TV Stand in cherry finish
  • Ashworth Collection king size bed, dresser with mirror and two night stands, rustic look
  • Harbor Pointe Collection dining room set – mission-inspired style with a warm oak finish
