Get comfortable at Trudy's Living Room

Grand opening set for entire month of September


by: WILSONVILLE AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE - Rick and Trudy Palo recently opened Trudy's Living Room in Wilsonville.Trudy’s Living Room is not only one of Wilsonville’s newest businesses, but also a new member of the Wilsonville Area Chamber of Commerce.

In mid July owners Trudy and Rick Palo held a soft opening. Now, they will be celebrating their official grand opening for the entire month of September. 

The couple has more than 30 years of experience in the furniture business and have lived and raised their children in the Wilsonville community for the past 15 years. 

“We opened the store here because we raised our kids in Wilsonville schools and love the community,” said Rick Palo. “This is our way of giving back to the community and being a part of the local economy.”

In the past, Rick Palo was a representative for Broyhill Furniture. But the job required a lot of travel, ultimately causing him to look elsewhere for work.

As a result, the couple opened the retail store.

Its main focus is on living room furnishings. But Trudy’s Living Room also offers a full mattress line.

In addition, there is a warehouse area in the back of the store for first-time furniture buyers, while the higher-quality furniture is in the front of the store.

“We also felt it was important to have a lot of local artists provide accent pieces people can purchase,” Trudy Palo said. “We work very hard to make sure we have local artists represented in the showroom.”

The store carries Broyhill, Ashley Benchcraft, Jonathan Louis and Emerald furniture, as well as a full line of Serta mattresses.

“Our desire is to have people come into the store and feel at home,” she said. “People can come in and get ideas or just browse; we are very low pressure.”

“This is a great location because we have room to expand and evolve the business as it grows,” Rick Palo added. “Overall Wilsonville is a great place to live and work.”
