Stacey Cooper Family

Serving the Pecos Valley & West Texas

Skeen Furniture was founded by my great grandparents Ivan and Elizabeth Skeen, who opened a small furniture store at 321 S. Canyon.  Things were much different then.  Used furniture was much easier to acquire during those times. They also made mattresses in the original building, which were sewn by Elizabeth Skeen herself.    Later, in the early 1970’s, Kelly Skeen- my grandfather- purchased the old Sears building (Now 301 S. Canyon).   He expanded the family business , offering the latest brands. Skeen Furniture was the first LA-Z-BOY dealer in New Mexico.  He brought brands to Carlsbad that most would only find in larger cities. “Value and Service” continued to be the focus of the family business. After his passing , my grandmother Martha Skeen and later my father Curtis Skeen continued the business.  While lots has changed in the furniture business, we continue to offer the latest brands and quality and service that you don’t find in stores today.   It is very important to us that every customer who walks in the doors has a pleasant experience, feels at home, and finds the quality and price they are looking for.  Aesthetics play an important part in a person’s mood and mental health.  It’s important to us that we can help a customer achieve the environment of their dreams.
