Brick City Furniture purchased Carlton Manufacturing's Florida assets in 2014. The Ocala facility has been producing fine, custom upholstery since 1976. The team at Brick City Furniture looks forward to earning your business by building on the Carlton tradition of quality upholstery at a fair price and nurturing a culture of continuous improvement in everything we do.
Why the name? We are located in beautiful Ocala, Florida. Ocala became known as the "Brick City" after an unfortunate event. Believe it or not, Ocala was well on its way to becoming Florida's 5th largest city in the late 1800's. Then, early Thanksgiving morning in 1883, a fire broke out in, of all things, a furniture store. The town was virtually destroyed. However; with the great American resolve our country is built on, Ocala rebuilt itself, this time out of stone, brick and iron. Ocala took on a much different look than any other Florida city and become known as the Brick City.
Just as Ocala rebuilt itself and has withstood the test of time, Brick City Furniture looks forward to serving you with American made quality for years to come.
