About the Midwest Furniture Club

Mission of the Midwest Furniture Club

Our IHFRA chapter, better known as the Midwest Furniture Club, has been in existence since 1917.

Through the volunteer work of our members, the Midwest Furniture Club has grown consistently in membership while providing programs of interest. Our industry is a globally changing platform; therefore, to sustain our growth, we need each other's support and networking to meet these challenges.

With this in mind, all of us should realize that our nucleus of talent and energy will endure. It is the passion of our membership's dedication that provides a stage for the following:

  • Successful networking of our profession
  • Educational programs and seminars
  • An organization that provides a future for all
  • Enhancement of every part of our industry
  • Providing philanthropic programs that benefit the Midwest Home Furnishings arena

With this in mind, Midwest Furniture Club is here for one purpose, so that our industry flourishes.
