Baer's Furniture & Interior Design is as much a part of the Florida landscape as palm trees, sandy beaches, and spectacular sunsets.
Founded in 1945 by Melvin and Lucile Baer in South Bend, Indiana, what began as Baer's Outfitters blossomed into Baer's Quality Furniture & Interior Design
in the Florida sunshine. The family-owned company opened its first store in the Sunshine State in 1968. One store in Dania soon became
throughout the state, with the newest location opening in Jacksonville in 2020.
Melvin and Lucile Baer built their business based on one basic vision: offer customers the best brands at the best prices.
Baer's Furniture brought this simple mantra to Florida, where they provided the community with trusted brands, quality craftsmanship,
and beautiful designs, all at remarkable discounts. All with a Florida flair.
In keeping with the mission to put the customer first with the best selection and service, Baer's has evolved into more than just a furniture store.
At Baer's, design is a part of the name. Not only can you find a huge selection with over 70
to choose from, you can also get expert Florida interior design advice from an in-house design professional.
Whether your style is Florida tropical, beach house, cottage, or anywhere in between, our design professionals will put a look together that brings your vision to life.
We listen and take notes, refine and redefine until we have the exact look you are going for. Florida interiors are often a mix of many different elements, as eclectic
as the state itself, and we make sure they all play well together in your space.
As a community that draws on many influences,
Florida interior design
takes its cue from diverse influences, from coastal to tropical to midcentury modern. Light, bright, and breezy
are the main characteristics of Florida interiors, and Baer's designers combine these elements into cool, casual, and chic interiors.
Baer's Furniture & Interior Design is more than just a furniture store, it is a part of the community. When hurricanes hit, they are right in the mix,
collecting and distributing donations to those who need them. The Baer Family is also involved with many local and national charities, including
City of Hope
(diabetes and cancer research), Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, United Jewish Appeal, and Sylvester Cancer Research.
The company received the Spirit of Life award from the City of Hope in 2018. The company and family have donated to many local and national causes,
but none is more personal than the fight against cancer. Cancer touches us all in one way or another.
When your name is on the building and the company, you take pride in all you do for your customers and the community.
With 75 years of experience, Baer's is more than just a furniture store, they are your source for Florida interior design inspiration.
Family-owned for four generations, the company proudly continues its founders' winning philosophy of providing the best customer service, the best brands,
and the best prices. That's why generations of Florida families make Baer's Furniture & Interior Design their first and only stop when looking for furniture,
accessories, and design advice to achieve the perfect Florida space.
