Braswell Furniture was a furniture dealership founded in 1906 by Sidney Braswell. It first opened on Avenue E at 17th Street in Ensley and expanded to seven locations in its heyday. As the business later contracted the original Ensley location was closed. The last store to close was located at 1691 Center Point Parkway.

Braswell's grandson, Vance Braswell then 75 years old, shut down the company in 2008.
