Wilson Furniture was founded in 1934, in a small garage in New Haven, Connecticut by Cliff and Emily Wilson as a reupholster and new furniture manufacturer. As the business grew, Cliff and Emily moved the business to its current location on South Colony Road in Wallingford, Connecticut.


The next generation joined the business in 1938 when Cliff's father and mother started working. The business continued to grow and the third generation of Wilsons: Cliff's sons, Richard and Chuck joined the family business in 1961. Today we are proud to have Richard's sons, Rich and Matt, our fourth generation working in the family business.


In 1965 the business expanded to over 10,000 square feet, adding a furniture showroom.


In 2007 Wilson Furniture and Richard's Upholstery joined forces and became stronger than ever with a new remodeled showroom and workplace.


The growth of furniture chains has resulted in a loss of the personal touch with customers.

In contrast, today, as in 1934, Wilson Furniture & Richard’s Upholstery remain dedicated to personalized service. You deal with Matt, the owner !
