100 Years of Service

Does your home feel like your sanctuary? The Blocker family wants to make sure you love the feeling of coming home!

They know your home is where you gather with family and friends to make cherished memories. When you’re ready to update your living space, the Blocker’s Furniture team will help you select the perfect pieces to make your house the home you’ve always wanted.

Whether you’re searching for a comfy living room set with enough space for everyone to watch the big game, furnishing a dining room where all your loved ones can gather to enjoy a meal, or updating your outdoor living space to get the most enjoyment out of the Sunshine State’s natural beauty, Blocker’s promises a large selection with a range of styles and prices to fit both your aesthetic and your budget. 

“Our sales and design team members can help you find stylish furnishings that don’t have that cookie-cutter look,” says Rusty Blocker, vice president and the fourth generation to work in the family business. “We know you want your furniture and accessories to reflect your individual style, not the style of a designer at some impersonal, chain furniture store. That’s why we hand select our quality furnishings twice a year from North Carolina’s highest quality craftsmen.”

The Way You Live

Your living room is your space for everyday comfort and relaxation. Find sofas, sectionals and recliners along with coordinating end tables and coffee tables that fit your family. Personalize your choices with dozens upon dozens of fabric options, real leather selections, multiple cushion types, and a variety of wood stain finishes.

The Way You Work

With so many of us working from home these days, your home office could probably use an update. Add functionality and organization to your workspace with quality desks, office chairs, bookcases and cabinets that don’t sacrifice style.

Enjoy Dinnertime in Style

What’s more important than family dinners and holiday gatherings? Make sure everyone has a seat at your table and select from tables, chairs and bar stools, as well as storage and display options such as sideboards, china cabinets, bar carts, wine racks and kitchen islands.

Sleep in Serenity and Style  

Ready to upgrade your sleep experience? Blocker’s promises a better mattress for every budget, at every price—from innerspring to foam to hybrid to pocketed coil. Each mattress, including brands such as Sealy, Serta, Simmons and Tempur-Pedic, comes with not just the manufacturer’s warranty but also Blocker’s 60-day Sleep Guarantee. When they deliver your mattress, they’ll also haul away your old mattress for free. Choose from foundations including adjustable bases, plus luxury bedding and pillows. 

Ready for a whole-bedroom update? Choose modern or traditional beds, dressers, nightstands, armoires and headboards. 

Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Your outdoor living space is an extension of your home, and comfortable outdoor furniture for your patio or lanai will let you make the most of family time in the fresh air. Find your new outdoor seating, outdoor dining furniture and even an outdoor fireplace.

Blocker’s offers a long list of well-known, quality brands, including Ashley, Bassett, England, Flexsteel and Tommy Bahama, just to name a few.

“Good prices, excellent customer service and an understanding of our clients’ needs have contributed to our solid reputation and have helped us stay in business for so many decades,” says Russell Blocker, owner and president. 

A Lasting Legacy

For 100 years, the Blocker family has helped other North Central Florida families transform their homes to create the perfect sanctuary. 

Family-owned and operated since the 1920s, Blocker’s Furniture has a solid reputation for top-notch service, reasonable prices and the area’s largest selection.

“It is our mission to have furniture that will fit everyone’s needs, budget and lifestyle,” Rusty says. Like his father, Russell, grandfather Jimmy, and great-grandfather J.E., Rusty enjoys being part of their family’s legacy every day.

It was 1924 when J.E. Blocker purchased a dry goods store on Ocala’s downtown square to establish the Blocker’s brand. In the 1940s, they moved to another downtown location on South Magnolia Avenue. As the furniture business continued to expand, they moved in the 1950s to a 42,000-square-foot building on South Pine Avenue. Then, in 2004, Blocker’s Furniture moved to their current location, establishing Ocala’s largest furniture showroom, an 80,000-square-foot former Walmart, on Southwest College Road. 

Browse room after room of sturdy and comfortable furniture that will fit your life. Or shop online for more than 1,000 pieces in stock, plus an infinite number of customizable options available to order.
