History[edit]

The year was 1944. Abram Albert DeFehr,[3] a Russian-born immigrant to Canada,[4] began making simple wooden pieces in the basement of his Winnipeg home. Within a few years, the fledgling business had moved from the basement into a former chicken barn, which became Palliser Furniture’s first factory. 70 years, Palliser Furniture Upholstery Ltd. is a leading North American furniture company with local manufacturing facilities in Canada and Mexico.
