Southern Motion at Baer's Furniture
Founded in 1996 in Pontotoc, Mississippi, Southern Motion™ started off with a rocking beginning as they found their place in the furniture industry. As a household name for furniture, Southern Motion has thrived throughout the years, introducing new products to customers looking for style and comfort combined.
In the beginning, the idea was simple: manufacture only reclining furniture and make it better than anyone ever had. All they needed was a name. One day while Guy Lipscomb (Co-founder) and his wife, Sandy were shopping, they happened across a painting entitled “Southern Motion” by a Birmingham, Alabama, artist. Following that discovery, the painting served not only as the inspiration for the company’s name, it also embodies the spirit of the product to be manufactured with relaxation and comfort in mind for all Southern Motion furniture.
