About Us - Experience the Darvin Tradition

While always focusing on our customers, we wish to provide an environment for our associates that is fair, supportive and that provides an opportunity for them to achieve their own personal goals.
Louis Darvin began his business in 1920 by selling furniture door to door using catalog pictures. He became renowned as the furniture expert, offering high-quality furniture and low prices, and his customer base grew. His son David became his business partner, and they opened their first store in Chicago in the early 1940's.
In the 1970's, David's sons Steve and Marty joined the family business. After David's passing in 2005, Steve and Marty have continued their father's and grandfather's tradition of selling quality furniture at low prices along with exceptional service to their valued customers.
Today Darvin Furniture is not only Chicagoland's largest furniture store, but also one of the top 100 furniture retailers in the country. Located on 11 acres in Orland Park, Illinois, the showroom has 130,000 sq.ft. of furniture on display.
