In October of 1981, Brian Fourroux decided to start a business of his own after working for his father for many years. He started off in a small 5,000 square foot building, across from his father’s business, where he made sales during the day and would then deliver the furniture in the evenings. With the help of a few furniture dealers and manufacturers, his business quickly began to grow and prosper.
In 1985, he was joined by his wife, Keri, who helped him continue to expand the business. As the furniture industry began to change, Brian made the decision to diversify beyond just furniture. Cast aluminum outdoor products and Louisiana style products, such as sugar kettles, were added.
Little did he know, Brian’s Furniture would soon offer the largest selection of cast aluminum outdoor furniture and accessories in the South! Our iron and fiberglass sugar kettles are shipped across the country and our huge in-store art gallery has helped make that little 5,000 square foot store into a city-block-big shopping experience, still located in the heart of historic downtown Port Allen.
We are extremely fortunate to have a group of dedicated, hard-working employees, 3 of which have been with us for more than 20 years – Mary Ann (28 years), Ferral (24 years), and Keysha (23 years). All of our employees are a vital part of the success that we have experienced for over 30 years, and they are ready to help you discover why we are “Your Louisiana Store”.
We are proud to say that the Next Generation of Brian’s Furniture has arrived. Son, Blake, and daughter, Lindsey, have joined the business, bringing fresh ideas and new products to the store. If you haven’t been to our store lately, come see how we have changed. You’ll be pleasantly surprised!
Thanks for visiting our website, but don’t stop here! We invite you to visit our city-block-big location to get the full Brian’s Furniture experience. We’re proud to say that we aren’t your average furniture store, and we hope you will see that through our history and through the unique products that we offer.
We thank you for supporting locally owned and family operated businesses!
