 Derbyshire’s Furniture was opened by Walter Derbyshire in 1949 in the same location on Rt. 23 that it stands today. For seventy years Walter’s family ran this Wayne landmark, starting exclusively with unfinished furniture and kitchen cabinets that were built on site.  Later they started bringing in solid wood furniture from other manufacturers and, in the mid 1980s, adding custom finishing services.  Derbyshire’s is now run by Walter’s grandson, Bob, and his wife and business partner, Mary.  

 Derbyshire’s showroom features two floors packed with very affordable, high-quality solid wood furniture in an incredible array of styles including modern, mid-century, industrial/reclaimed, traditional, mission, shaker and more. Almost every item is available in any finish you like or unfinished for DIYers and many pieces can be made in custom sizes for those hard-to-fit spaces. Derbyshire’s staining and painting services are very popular with today’s busy families and customers love having so many color and finish options available to fit their personal styles.

 Educated furniture shoppers today not only want fair pricing, good value and selection, they also want furniture that is healthy for their homes and families.  Derbyshire’s takes this very seriously, considers the environmental and health impact of their products and does not carry any furniture made of artificial woods. Unlike furniture built with particleboard and MDF, which contains dangerous toxins, solid wood furniture is healthy and safe for your family and pets, can be refinished many times and lasts for generations. 

Come in to Derbyshire’s for their 70th anniversary celebration and see the difference yourself. You’ll wish you’d found this gem sooner!
