Storkland Furniture was a baby furniture retailer. The store was established at 2211 2nd Avenue North in the early 1970s. It was purchased by the Blair family, which also owned the neighboring Blair Furniture in 1996.

In 1998 owner Stan Blair moved the retail store to Vestavia Hills, maintaining the 2nd Avenue Blair Furniture location as a warehouse and close-out store. In 2014 Blair decided to return the retail business to downtown Birmingham, reopening at 2205 2nd Avenue North.

The store closed when Blair retired in November 2020.
