Our History

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

 

In 1903 founder Frank Griff, an immigrant 19 years of age, sought an opportunity as a merchant in Broken Hill. He established ‘Frank Griff – General Furnisher & Importer’. Growth and opportunity lead Frank to Sydney, where he established an eight-floor furniture business on Pitt Street. The business was renamed Valiant in 1961 and is still owned and operated by Frank Griff’s family to this day. 

National Reach.

With over 60 years of unmatched expertise, Valiant stands as Australia's foremost furniture and styling firm, boasting a nationwide presence coupled with unparalleled local knowledge.
