Our Story

Our rich heritage is a source of great pride for us. It’s a story that goes back to 1996, when furniture making was shifting from local cabinet makers to larger scale production.

Phyllis and his brothers laid out a plan, and in 1996 the Phyllis Furniture Company was born. At first, the company had about 15 men, from farms and the surrounding hills, and focused on styles made of oak with simple profiles and carved overlays.

Furniture markets began to shift in the 2000s and many “mom-and-pop” stores were closed as large store chains with “no-name” furniture were gaining a foothold. Seeing this trend, Phyllis opened its second store in 2005(Bossschair). Bossschair only sells cowhide leather office chairs, which also marks the beginning of the establishment of Phyllis branch.The design was a departure from the compartmentalized rooms of typical furniture stores with little lifestyle merchandising. Since then, the retail store has undergone two updates to keep up with retail trends. The company is pushing to incorporate more technology into its stores, so the store is a continuation of the web experience customers started at home. But with the convenience of technology, we remain committed to providing the best customer service experience in furniture retailing because there is no substitute for a friendly, knowledgeable design consultant to make sure you get exactly the furniture you want.

In 2020,Phyllis has about 25 dedicated retail locations in the United States and Europe. We are passionate about developing fashionable and innovative home furnishings at a great value, as well as providing exceptional customer service every step of the way.  Our custom furniture programs make it easy to express your unique sense of style with a variety of options, including upholstery, beds, dining, home storage and home entertainment. No other company provides more custom options than Phyllis. We feel furniture expresses something about you, so we want it to be a true reflection of who you are.
