The Raleigh Furniture Building is a three-story brick building that is culturally significant as a rare, architecturally intact building that remains from Raleigh's "Black Main Street." Romanesque Revival in style with Italianate elements. Notable architectural features include brick pilasters and horizontal corbelled modling, paired segmental-arched nine-over-one double-hung sash wood windows, brick segmented arches with concrete keystones, concrete sills, simple concrete window hoods with keystones, and a round concrete arch with keystone. Historic painted signage remains on the west wall.
Constructed in 1914 by the Raleigh Furniture Company, the building served the commercial needs of the African American community on East Hargett Street until 1963. The building was restored over 2006-2007 and currently serves as business offices.
