Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to be a company that provides a product people love, a place people love to work, a partner vendors want to work with and customers love to deal with.

Our Story

Our owner, Correy Arnaud, grew up in Eunice, LA working in his dad’s speed shop selling racing parts. Success in the racing business led to its expansion into Lafayette and Baton Rouge. Eventually, due to commerce changes in the market, the business was transitioned into a flea market selling both used and new furniture. In 2004, Correy purchased the flea market from his dad. Correy moved the store to a more prominent area of Lafayette and changed the name to Arnaud’s Furniture in 2011. Later that year, he bought his first truckload of rustic furniture to sell in his retail store.

On September 2nd of 2012, God made Correy a promise that he would be wholesaling rustic furniture out of his dad’s dilapidated, old speed shop building located on his property. Early that following year, Correy began wholesaling rustic furniture out of the back of his retail store. Two years later, business had grown enough for the first building to be built next to the old speed shop. This was the beginning, laying the framework of God’s promise to Correy. In 2014, Correy sold Arnaud’s Furniture and began wholesaling rustic furniture full time.

The old speed shop was remodeled in 2017 and is now home to Correy’s office and the Eunice showroom (first building on the left). At this time, Rustic Imports was wholesaling rustic furniture out of the old speed shop to customers throughout the southeast.

 

In 2018, the Atlanta warehouse opened in Kennesaw, GA and distribution continued to grow. Although the majority of our production is currently in Mexico, it is our desire to have a positive impact around the globe as we strive to place furniture in homes across all 50 states.

And the best is yet to come!

Rustic Imports is more than furniture. We are driven by a vision to expand our reach for the greater purpose of enriching and impacting others all for the glory of Jesus Christ, our Savior.

This vision statement sets the tone for all that we do within our organization. It is our hope that our core values are demonstrated throughout our business and have a positive impact on others:

Togetherness

The key to our success. We support and honor one another with a “whatever it takes” attitude to accomplish our goals. If our customers and suppliers don’t succeed, neither do we.

Generosity

Owner, Correy Arnaud, has a passion for helping others. Our success has enabled us to provide disaster relief, support missionaries, and help battered women find safety – just to name a few. We believe there is a greater purpose for selling furniture.

Higher Standard

Quality is number one in everything we do from products to people to service. Quality is never sacrificed and is achieved by holding ourselves to high standards and investing in people.

Servanthood

Our employees work hard to provide the very best service to our customers. It is our desire to be a servant leader, honoring God in all we do. Rustic Imports is truly grateful for each customer.

Family

This is how we define relationships at Rustic Imports. We care about our employees, customers and suppliers. We love getting to know everyone on a personal level. We’re all on the same team. Relationships make us better.

Growth

Rustic Imports is always striving to move forward by expanding, adapting, improving, developing in all areas of our business and beyond. This includes growth in our faith and community outreach.

Community

At Rustic Imports, we not only have a desire to build our communities by doing things publicly and privately – we know that it is better to give than to receive. We support our local communities in a variety of ways including donations to school fundraisers and shelters, through sponsorships, missions, and disaster relief aid. We have also witnessed the positive effects of our business within the communities near the factories. The result: Prosperity and growth. The factories in Mexico provide jobs for over 500 families. Our main factory has more than doubled in size since we began. Read on to learn more about a few of the ways we support our communities.

Hurricane Harvey

Over the years, Rustic Imports has given back to our local communities with donated furniture especially in times of natural disasters. In 2017, Hurricane Harvey devastated parts of Texas. Homes were flooded and families had to rebuild. Rustic Imports partnered with our factory and Turning Point Church in Vidor, TX to provide an 18-wheeler load of beds and chests donated to help with that effort. We are grateful that we could help so many families.

Meet Papi

Rustic Imports sponsors his family’s work serving people through Helimission USA, www.helimission.org. They provide social, medical and spiritual aid to remote, inaccessible areas. “An 8 minute flight instead of a 10 hour hike.” It is their desire to show the love of Christ to those in need and speed the spread of the gospel via aircraft.

Helimission is non-denominational and helps those in need regardless of their religious affiliation. Helimission is supported by voluntary donations.

The Mission Ball

The Mission Ball is a soccer ball covered in biblical text that outlines the gospel. It uses the world’s most popular sport as a means of connecting with people and proclaiming Christ.

Correy and Mike gifted factory employees with The Mission Ball in appreciation for our partnership. Each and every employee contributes to our mutual success.

The Hope Center

The HOPE Center’s mission is making sure women are equipped, educated, and empowered with the information and resources they need to make fully-informed decisions about their unplanned pregnancies.

They believe no woman should ever be pressured to make a decision against her will. They are a place where women of all ages can go to be assisted with their decisions, and have access to free resources, free emotional support, and freedom to choose.

I am so fortunate to be a part of the Rustic Imports family, and that is what I consider you guys, an extension of my family. Being a part of Rustic Imports has completely changed my business…

FAQs

Lighting plays a key role in the appearance of a piece. Different light and settings can affect the look or bring out different tones in the wood or paint. We do our best to picture the item in a way that highlights its features.

The natural element of wood has distinct color variations and grain patterns that may affect the finish application also. While this can make exact color matches of like pieces difficult, it only displays the uniqueness of each individual piece.

Most of our furniture is finished with a lacquer finish for durability and water resistance; however, it is recommended that you use coasters for the best results and clean your wood furniture with a damp cloth only. Sunlight is the biggest enemy for wood furniture. Excessive sun exposure will cause fading and discoloration. It is best not to expose it to direct sunlight for long periods of time. Extreme temperature changes can also affect the look of your furniture and cause movement (contraction/expansion) in the wood.

Minor scratches and dings can be repaired easily with a furniture marker such as, Minwax Wood Finish Stain Marker. Dark Walnut is the best match for most of our tobacco finish tops. Water rings and more significant finish repairs will most likely require stripping/sanding the finish, so we recommend you seek professional assistance. You may consider a color match at a local hardware store for minor paint touch ups.

Rustic Imports’ furniture is hand-made furniture primarily consisting of solid pine wood. Each piece is uniquely crafted to offer a rustic, weathered look. The natural wood, including its natural imperfections such as cracks, knots, splits, and uneven edges, are preserved in the finished product.

Often, purposeful distressing techniques are used to contribute and enhance the overall uniqueness of each rustic piece. The natural element of wood often results in movement of the wood due to expansion, shrinkage or cracks that may occur over time in varying climates. These are most certainly not imperfections or defects, but rather the overall quintessential beauty of what makes our products rustic.
