Al Capone

Did you know that Al Capone’s fake business card allegedly said he was a used furniture salesman? That’s what Twitter told me just the other day! While I am not sure how knowledgeable Al Capone would be about furniture, I can imagine that he would be pretty persuasive in convincing customers to purchase.

Of course, being in the furniture business, I thought this was some pretty interesting news! It had me daydreaming of the 1920s for a minute, and then I starting thinking, “Is this even a fact or did someone make it up?” Finally I thought of what type of furniture Al Capone would like.

I don’t know about you, but when I think of American gangster, Al Capone, I picture him sitting behind a dark, bulky desk in his over-sized executive chair puffing on a big, fat cigar.

Something like this Executive Desk from Hooker Furniture would stand up to his reputation. It is bold and regal, and has plenty of storage for who-knows-what he might need to hide away.

Add to it a tufted chair that makes a statement. It’s comfortable but professional. And let’s face it … we know he won’t be sitting there often, so the tufted back will offer a nice view in his absence.

But I don’t think it would stop there!  The more I thought about it, I came to the conclusion that he would want a statement-making piece worth of his reputation. Something with lots of storage for his many “accounts” would surely be in his office space. I think he would pick any of these great wall units in a heartbeat!

So whether or not it’s true that Al Capone’s business card said he sold used furniture – he would definitely have to admit that the selection we have at Furnitureland South has him beat.
