Brand Story

"Here's an interesting fact about DFurniture. We're over 100 years young."

Founded in 1910, it would be 3 decades later that we found our true calling. In 1943, DFurniture started operations as office solutions specialists and has since established ourselves as a trusted brand.

Headquartered in Singapore, we also have strong business activities in Malaysia, emerging cities in ASEAN, India, South Africa and the Middle East.
