Bassett Furniture San Diego

Kim & Kayleen Huffman and Ed Fishauf

Rick, Ed and Kayleen have called the furniture industry home for their entire careers. Rick Huffman began in 1974 with The Brick Warehouse in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Ed Fishauf was all but born into the business as his parents established Economy Furniture Galleries in Chula Vista in 1965. Kayleen Huffman began her career taking a job at Cousins in Rancho Cordova in 1983 while in college. All three careers collided while working at The Brick/Furnishings 2000 in Northern and Southern California in 1984.
 
Our partnership was formed in 1993 while Ed was running his family’s Economy Furniture Galleries store. Born of this partnership was a location in San Marcos that led to a Bassett Home Furnishings location in 1999. The San Marcos Bassett was the first California location for the stand alone Bassett store concept. Temecula, Irvine, Fountain Valley and Eastlake locations opened between 2002 and 2006. Today, we continue to operate in San Marcos, Temecula and La Jolla.
 
Our partnership has been built on common values: Faith, Family, Integrity and Community. We have been blessed by the family we have and the family we have created through our associates and business partners. We carry our values into our relationships. Our vendors have been amazing partners over the years and we thank them all.
 
Our future success in the industry will be led by Matt Huffman, COO who has built a team that will continue the legacy.
