Why Shop with Fairbury Furniture?
Fairbury Furniture is owned and operated by a local couple, Rick and Jeanne Wilson. They have been married thirty-six years, have four children and three grandchildren. They moved to the area 19 years ago from Aurora, Illinois. They have a strong Christian faith and are members of the Truth Tabernacle Church in Pontiac. Their family, faith, and community are important to them.
Fairbury Furniture is located in the old historic Walton Bros. Building in beautiful downtown Fairbury, Illinois. The 2-story building consists of a 7,000 sq. ft. furniture showroom including a recent addition of the WC Market that carries home décor and gifts. Rick and Jeanne also own and operate the gorgeous ballroom/banquet hall upstairs called the Walton Centre. Just a few doors down you will find the Fairbury Furniture Mattress store which they operate as well.
Rick was a mechanical engineer by trade for many years. He is involved in the Fairbury Area Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, Chairman of the City Planning Commission, Shop Local, and he also teaches adult bible class at their church. He is also a part of the John Maxwell Team Leadership Development for the past five years.
Jeanne is very talented in decorating both in the furniture store and decorating the ballroom upstairs for weddings and events, managing the store and keeping things organized are her strengths. She has had previous experience in managing a clothing store, Midwest homes in Chenoa and she worked for the previous owners of Fairbury Furniture.
They have had full ownership of the building for seven years and had previously co-owned the building from 2011 until they took over full ownership in 2013. Fairbury Furniture carries a wide variety of recliners, sofas, accent chairs, tables, lamps, rugs, beds, mattresses and decorative pillows. We carry brands like Best, Fusion, Affordable, Ashley, England, Leather Italia, Mac Motion Chairs and Sealy.
While shopping at Fairbury Furniture be sure to check out the latest addition of the WC Market. The WC Market is managed by Kathy Kupferschmid.

Kathy’s former employee Kathy Ladeairous now assists with buying product and helps with displays throughout the store. The two Kathy’s attend trade shows together to find unique and interesting items to bring into the store.
