South Shore Furniture was founded in 1940 by Eugene Laflamme who after losing his job as a journalist bought a small factory. Despite setbacks such as two factory fires, Eugene did not give up and made the company a success. Today, the company is still owned by the Laflamme family.
South Shore has gone from three employees in 1940 to 800 employees across North America. The company manufactures much of its product line in Quebec. The product line includes desks, beds, dresses, and changing tables. All South Shore furniture is available to order online.
