It's hard to stand inside a Godby Home Furnishings showroom. Comfy couches, chairs, and beds wait around every turn inside the store. Each visit showcases furnishings for several areas of the home, including living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms. A look at the item tags in any of these sections reads like a who's who of the home furnishing world—names like Flexsteel , La-Z-Boy, Serta, and Tempurpedic among many more. The Carmel location is open despite the closure of US 31.
The Godby family has curated these fine furnishings since 1974, when Jim Godby founded the first location. After coming aboard in 1992, Jim's son Jeff oversaw the company's expansion into a modern day furniture empire that rivals the ionic column emporiums of Rome. At the center of it all lies the Godby Home Furnishings 75,000 sq. ft. warehouse, which stocks all the furniture on display in each showroom. In total, about eight million dollars of inventory fills the warehouse—but sometimes that's not even enough. In those cases, Godby's team happily places a custom order for their customers.
Crossroads Chem-Dry uses a proprietary cleaning system that rids carpets, upholstery, and rugs of dirt with a nontoxic, quick-drying method. During a typical carpet-cleaning session, Crossroads' grime-fighters arrive at homes with their powerful Chem-Dry cleaning equipment. This machinery utilizes a hot-carbonation cleaning method that's effective at sucking up dirt and drying it quickly.
An example of their environmentally friendly cleaning solutions is The Natural, which is certified green by the FDA. As opposed to industry-standard steam cleaning, Chem-Dry's system typically dries within one to two hours, like the Statue of Liberty after a shower.
