Located in downtown Fort Walton Beach, Florida, DeFrance is a family owned business that introduces our community to the joy and excitement of repurposing furniture, finding the perfect home décor and discovering forgotten treasures in our 13,000 square foot store. With over 100 booths and just as many vendors, the style throughout the store varies from booth to booth.
Since our beginning when we started simply as vendors in DeFrance, we have loved bringing new life to formerly loved furniture. We would rescue tables, chairs, dressers, beds… you name it! In 2012 our lifelong dream of owning our own store came true when we were given the opportunity to become partners in our favorite store – DeFrance of course. We are now the sole owners and we are thrilled and thankful for what we get to do every day.
We strongly feel that faith and family make up the vintage soul of DeFrance. We like to treat all our vendors and customers as if they are a part of the family.
When it comes to design, we believe that history and nostalgia really help to create warm and inviting spaces that people feel comfortable in. A trip to the store, and now the website, is never the same with an ever-changing inventory of vintage and antique furniture, unique home décor and handcrafted items. When it comes to style, it’s all about having fun and making it you!
Join us in the store to find that perfect piece you’ve been looking for or simply walk the aisles for inspiration. Oh and don’t forget to give a warm greeting to Porsha, our much loved and pampered Boston Terrier. **Sadly we lost Porsha August of 2017.
