Learn about our History of serving Oregon families since 1901

Blackledge Furniture is a fourth generation family business started in 1901 to serve the home furnishings needs of the mid valley area.   The store was founded by Oliver J. Blackledge who came to Oregon from Iowa in the 1890s.    The store originally sold furniture, bedding, rugs, paints, musical instruments, and even undertaking services, as was common for furniture stores at the time.

The original store was remodeled and enlarged in 1923 with the construction of a new building to the south.   The store grew during the 1920's and survived the depression years by developing one of the largest paint selections in the Willamette Valley.   During the 1940's the selection of furniture was expanded.   Even then, the store sold well know brands such as Drexel Furniture, Hotpoint appliances, Atwater Kent radios, and Sherwin Williams paints.

In 1970 the current owners Eric and Judy Blackledge moved the business north  one block to it's current location at 2nd and Jefferson.   The renovated department store building gave us almost 35,000 square feet of sales area with a large adjoining 18,000 square foot Annex, and warehouse - service area.   Our new store permitted a greater emphasis on home fashion and design with an expanded selection of high value and higher quality products.   In addition to the largest in-stock selection of home furnishings in the mid valley, our design oriented sales advisors can help you custom order from over 4,000,000 different special order items available from hundreds of manufacturers.  And, you always get our Guaranteed Low Prices and other exclusive benefits.
