Company History

Located in Madison, WI, Meridian Furniture Co. operates as the wholesale and commercial division of Chalet Company LLC, along with Chalet Ski & Patio, our retail partner and sister company.

Chalet Company was founded in 1972 by a small group of furniture developers who shared a passion for quality, design and value. Starting as a single retail store in Des Moines, Iowa, the company quickly grew and expanded to 12 retail furniture stores located throughout the Midwest. In 1983, the company relocated to Madison, WI where it is still headquartered today.

By the late 1980's, the company developed a wide range of indoor and outdoor furniture lines that it sourced directly from factories in Europe, Scandinavia, Asia and the USA. During this time, the company developed considerable expertise in sourcing materials and fostered many long-term relationships with global suppliers. The company also began a wholesale business where it supplied furniture to other retailers around the Midwest. In 1992, to support the expanding business, the company opened a large distribution center in Middleton, Wisconsin.

In 1998, the Company formed a separate division called Meridian Furniture Company to focus specifically on providing outdoor furniture to retail specialty stores.

At the same time, the Company started manufacturing and distributing higher grades of furniture for the outdoor patio commercial market including hotels, clubs, resorts, restaurants and eldercare facilities. To further support the business, in 2006, we opened a new state of the art distribution center in Belleville, Wisconsin where we stock a wide range of outdoor commercial furniture and provide warranty service and replacement parts for our customers throughout the country.
