Moorpark, CA – Abbyson Living Corporation (“Abbyson” or the “Company”), a provider of high-quality and affordable furniture and accessories, has been recapitalized by Solace Capital Partners (“Solace”) to position the Company for continued growth.

Since its founding in 2008, Abbyson has grown dramatically to become an industry leader within the online channel of the home furnishings category. Abbyson’s diverse product offering spans the entire home, and its excellence in quality and design, as well as its unique marketing approach, has helped to create a strong brand name with online shoppers. This is evidenced by its deep roster of blue-chip e-commerce partners, including Wayfair.com, Overstock.com, Costco.com, Target.com and Macys.com.

“FocalPoint helped us evaluate all of our alternatives and make the ‘right’ choice in a partner. We are thrilled to work with the Solace team,” commented Yavar Rafieha, President of Abbyson Living.

“We were impressed by the management team and the strong performance to date. Abbyson Living is truly a pioneer in the fastest growing niche of the home furnishings industry, the e-commerce channel,” commented Chris Brothers, Managing Partner at Solace.
