About Us

International Furniture Wholesalers (IFW) is a family based business — founded by Dale and Donna Adolf in 1999 and began as a Saskatoon-based venture dealing mostly in mattresses, but quickly expanded to provide furniture and interior accessories to nine other Canadian cities, including Prince Albert and Regina.
At IFW, we stock bedroom suites, leather and fabric living room furniture, dining room and kitchen table sets, artwork and accessories, hot tubs — any home furnishings residential or commercial clients might be searching for. Employees at IFW are knowledgeable and devoted to helping the customers discover the perfect pieces to complete their home decor.

Exclusive Products and Creative Accents for Your Home

The combined business and family ties that characterize IFW’s professional approach have lent the company remarkable buying power. By purchasing in container-loads, IFW is able to get better prices which in turn is passed along to the clients. IFW’s unique ability to “pick and choose” products details has enabled them to create an emblematic feature: International Furniture Wholesalers “Signature Series.”
Although IFW’s products are sourced from various manufacturers, each is an IFW exclusive. And each Signature Series piece — whether intended for the bedroom, living room, kitchenette or foyer — incorporates features specially requested by the team at IFW to maximize value. Such features might be as simple as a unique stain, or as complex as an added Italian glide mechanism.
We also carry a Tennessee-based custom upholstery company whose products are available in more than 400 leathers or fabrics in as little as 21 days. IFW also stocks an impressive array of Italian leather furniture with over 1,500 frames to choose from and over 120 fabrics and 150 leathers.
International Furniture continues to provide Saskatoon with an excellent selection of mattresses. Carrying one of the largest lines of in-stock mattresses in the province, the IFW showroom boasts a wonderful selection of different models, comfort levels and sizes — including extra long, 48-inch — and offers circular mattresses and custom builds to fit any RV or Camper.
We have also recently sourced a practical and unique dining table company which has become part of their “Expandables” line, solid wood tables which can be lengthened from 60 to 132 inches. All the leaves are self-storing and come in four colours and seat from six to 12 people with ease.
IFW has also expanded their collection of artwork, enabling clients to fill in their home’s final details at the store. Wall art is offered in various sizes, and tabletop sculptures are also available. Each piece is done by hand and each piece is slightly different from the other. In a lot of cases, pieces are one of a kind, so once it’s gone, it’s gone! The International Furniture artistic style shows creativity and whimsy: for instance, miniature telescopes, hippopotamuses, and even enlarged playing pieces from a game of jacks.
Saunas and hot tubs are also available at IFW. We feel that we carry one of the most healthiest, energy-efficient hot tubs on the market. One of our hot tubs are up at the Arctic Circle. IFW stocks several models and styles to fit everyone’s budget, with a full line of chemicals and parts to support its clients.

Shop with Saskatoon’s Top Decorators

IFW’s ability to offer a wide variety of products at an array of price points that has helped to popularize the business with commercial clients, including decorators, home builders and realtors. The sheer quantities of onsite products are particular advantageous to commercial customers seeking props for home staging. With a large volume of stock in the warehouse, IFW can assist with pulling together the look clients are after in a very short period of time.
The same traits which make International Furniture desirable to commercial clients make them attractive to the general public. “We still are one of Saskatoon’s best-kept secrets when it comes to the interiors of people’s homes,” Donna says proudly. IFW’s wholesale prices represent a unique advantage to the residential customer, and quite often because of the effective pricing customers end up going home with a lot more than they expected for their budget.
IFW’s floor space allows the retailers to showcase numerous product combinations, giving customers a better picture of how purchases will look inside their home. They have a wide selection of bedroom suites, dining room suites, mattresses and sofa sets to pick from at any given time.
International Furniture Wholesalers combine the benefits of a warehouse-style retailer — heightened speed and selection, exclusive products, and extended customization options — with the consideration and care customers expect from a family business. Decorators, home builders and realtors are already familiar with International Furniture Wholesalers appeal; so are an increasing number of residential clients. If you’d like to be next, you know where to find us, we are open to the public seven days a week.
