Our Story

After spending more than two decades in fine upholstery manufacturing at high-end furniture plants in Ontario, William ‘Bill’ Rizk proceeded to pursue a lifelong dream of producing his own luxurious line of fine upholstered furniture. The mission was simple: 

To build and directly sell fine quality made-to-order furniture to perceptive clients across Canada at an extraordinary value. In 1998, Markham Furniture was born.



Beginning his journey with a small shop on Denison Street in Markham, Ontario, Bill catered to helping clients and a small roster of established interior designers who sought superbly-crafted fine furniture at a competitive price. With a strict adherence to clients’ needs and low overhead costs - combined with a tireless work ethic - Bill was able to sustain the business he started, and slowly grew the Markham Furniture brand over time.


Today, Markham Furniture is synonymous with superbly-crafted, made-to-order upholstery at an incredible value. Markham Furniture employs a team of highly-skilled furniture craftspeople (carpenters, cutters, sewers, and upholsterers) who apply their craft in a production facility much larger than the original workshop, collectively producing some of the finest upholstery made in Canada. 


In each of Markham Furniture’s two well-appointed showrooms (in Toronto and Markham), friendly, knowledgeable, professionally-trained designers, and upholstery sales consultants strive to make every engagement with clients an enjoyable one.
