Furniture Brands International filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection late in 2013. As part of the wind-down and liquidation of the Furniture Brands business, the properties being marketed are some of the last remaining real estate assets in the Estate.

KPS Capital Partners purchased the substantially all of the assets of Furniture Brands last November and subsequently renamed the company Heritage Home Group.
