COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Family-owned home furnishings company American Signature, Inc. (ASI) has launched a new television and radio campaign. "How to Buy the Perfect Piece" includes six TV spots, as well as radio, print, digital, and social, and is the first work from The Richards Group, which was named ASI's agency of record in April 2015. The campaign began airing August 4, 2015 and highlights how ASI, parent company of Value City Furniture and American Signature Furniture, helps customers find the right home furnishings to fit their lifestyle with a variety of furniture styles, value, and superior service. 

"We believe everyone deserves a well-furnished life, and furniture shopping should be enjoyable," said Scott Binger, executive vice president of marketing for American Signature, Inc. "Our goal is to convey to customers that ASI has the resources for a stress-free shopping experience to help them find the exact piece to personalize any space."

The 15- and 30-second "Anything But" spots show a couple, through a series of quick cuts, taking extreme measures to avoid the search for a new mattress – that is, until they discover ASI's three-step purchase process that makes mattress buying easy. In the 15- and 30-second "Binge Watching" spots, a family demonstrates how their perfect sectional fits into their TV time together. The tagline "How to Buy the Perfect Piece" is woven throughout the campaign.

"When we talked to customers, it was immediately clear they feel a lot of responsibility to create an appealing home. We wanted to honor how seriously they take that job, but to lighten it up a bit. These are short, relatable stories that marry the hunt for just the right find with the surprisingly easy and enjoyable process that ASI delivers time and again," said The Richards Group principal Rhonda Contreras.

The campaign will air through 2016 on network TV, national cable and network radio outlets.
