Palliser Furniture is a furniture manufacturing company headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.[1]

In 2015 the former president Cary Benson[2] was promoted to CEO, succeeding Art DeFehr.


In 1944, Abram Albert DeFehr,[3] a Russian-born immigrant to Canada,[4] began making wooden pieces in the basement of his Winnipeg home. Within a few years, the business moved from the basement into a former chicken barn, which became Palliser Furniture's first factory.
