Well-known store in historic building is closing due to longtime owners retirement

SOUTHOLD, N.Y. — 1670 Furniture House, located at 47155 County Road 48, is holding a going-out-of-business sale starting Aug. 28 in honor of owner Madeleine Schlaefer, who is retiring after 54 years in the business and closing the store.

 Madeleine and her late husband Gordon Schlaefer entered the furniture business in 1960 when they opened Gordon Schlaefer Furniture on Main Street in Port Washington, N.Y. In 1986, they opened 1670 Furniture House with their daughter Elizabeth in a charming historical building in their new home of Southold.  Over the years, the family expanded the three-level store—which was built in 1670— while keeping the aesthetics and rich history of the original building intact.

1670 Furniture House is located on the picturesque North Fork of Long Island, just minutes from numerous vineyards and the Long Island Sound. Over the years, 1670 Furniture House has become the North Fork area’s premier destination for stylish, high-quality furnishings at an exceptional value, Schlaefer said. The store offers customers a wide variety of furniture, lighting and home accessories, including transitional and coastal styles.

“We’re well known for our fresh and dynamic new designs,” said Madeleine Schlaefer. “We also pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service with a personal touch.”

Closing 1670 Furniture House “is a bittersweet event,” said Schlaefer, who runs the store with “great help” from her daughter Elizabeth. “But when it’s time, it’s time. I’m looking forward to spending more time with my grandchildren and friends and am excited about having time to travel.”

With Schlaefer’s retirement, 1670 Furniture House’s final sale offers customers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy brand furniture at going-out-of-business prices, she added. “We look forward to seeing many old friends during our closeout event.”

Everything in the store will be sold before the closing. 1670 Furniture House features furniture, home accents and bedding products from well-known brands such as Harden Furniture, C.R. Laine, Comfort Design, Rowe, Furniture Classics, Riverside, American Drew, Braxton Culler, Hancock & Moore, Theodore Alexander, Sherrill, Howard Miller and Elite Leather.
