The Delano’s Difference is reflected in the selection of brands we carry in our showrooms. We evaluate a variety of factors before deciding which brands to offer our customers.
When you shop at Delano’s, you aren’t going to see the same cookie-cutter pieces that many other furniture and mattress stores offer. With over 40 years of buying experience, we are confident that the companies we carry provide the perfect blend of quality and value at the overall best price in the area. Believe us we have seen it all.
Delano’s is proud to be the exclusive retailer for the ‘Almost Heaven’ signature brand of mattresses. This complete line of bedding includes traditional double-sided mattresses – all made right here in West Virginia by the Imperial Bedding Company. Imperial is family owned and operated and is located just outside Huntington, West Virginia.
The company employs over 80 local craftsmen who produce over 1000 units of high quality sleep products each day. Some of the places you may find the Imperial brand mattresses are healthcare facilities, dormitories and hotels, including The Greenbrier, America’s Resort. With a range of prices to choose from, the ‘Almost Heaven’ brand mattresses offer high quality construction, plus warranty options for either 10 or 20 years.
Kent’s Take: Made in the USA, Delano’s thinks Catnapper is the best value “reclining” furniture on the market. The reality is that reclining furniture has a higher chance of failure than traditional furniture – due to many moving parts and high usage. Let’s face it – you simply don’t want to move once you sink into a super comfortable reclining sofa! Because of this fact, here at Delano’s we are really picky about the reclining sofas and recliners we offer.
Catnapper has a few things that separates them from the other manufacturers of reclining furniture.
- Comfort coil seating. Each seat has a minimum of 50 pocketed coils, similar to the coils found in high quality mattress sets. These coils provide comfort and durability. Instead of a seat made with only poly foam, which loses its resiliency, Catnapper’s seats will keep their shape for many years.
- Metal Seat Box. Each reclining mechanism is attached to a metal seat box. The reclining mechanism is supported by the steel seat box and is not reliant on the wood frame for support. This is different than the method used by most manufacturers. Most manufactures screw the mechanism directly into the frame so that when the frame moves, the mechanism moves too. This is not good.
- Zippers! Catnapper is one of the few manufacturers to offer zipper access to key areas of the furniture. Soft and Durable are two words that often don’t go together in the furniture world. With Catnapper, Soft and Durable is possible. Often with high use, the soft areas of your sofa will start showing signs of wear or sagging. This usually occurs in the backs and reclining chaise (footrest) areas. Catnapper has allowed easy access to these areas, via zippers, for restuffing. For the life of your Sofa, Delano’s will come to your home and “restuff” your sofa at no charge.
It’s the Difference…The Delano’s and Catnapper Difference.

We showcase the Vaughan-Bassett brand in our stores not only because they offer products that are well made and an outstanding price point, but also because the company is based in Virginia.

The majority of the Vaughan-Bassett collections are made with Appalachian hardwoods including pine, oak, maple, cherry, ash, poplar, birch and beech. One hundred percent of their designs are manufactured in the United States, with about eighty percent of the trees they use coming from within 200 miles from their factories.

Quality is essential. Their private lumberyard makes sure each frame is precisely hand cut as needed. The use of drop in coil systems and top grade fiber make their upholstery a step above most promotional items on the market.
