Our Legacy

Burton James / About Us / Our Legacy

With a history spanning over three decades, Burton James has established their reputation as a true hidden secret of the professional interior design trade. A genuine American success story, this Southern California-based manufacturer was formed by President and CEO Ray Zoref with a unique mission to bring quality, bench made upholstered furniture to life in partnership with the vision of an outstanding customer service model that has since become the brand’s calling card. It was Zoref who, along with CFO Harry Robbins, Director of Customer Relations Ralph Hipsman and Creative Director Mark Landes, worked to expand the Burton James footprint to include an extensive network of “Trade” showrooms across the industry’s hottest markets, an impressive roster of private label partnerships, along with numerous retail outlets addressing the consumer direct market. With a commitment to local sources and labor, Burton James’ Los Angeles based operation is home to the team that designs and manufacturers a namesake range of sofas, sectionals, seating and bedroom furniture – all built to extracting specifications, a commitment to sustainability and an accessible design aesthetic that has come to redefine the industry’s meaning of “Casual Elegance.”
