Buy Once Enjoy for a Lifetime

Our store has always been committed to supporting the Canadian Furniture Industry. Our suppliers offer handcrafted furniture made to last a lifetime.

If you think Solid wood needs to be formal and stately think again. Solids also lend themselves well to warm country looks that are relaxed and inviting. I’ve loved Rustic looks long before Rustic was a trend. These pieces are charming with tons of character. Once upon a time, that character was built over years of family life and history with lots of great stories behind every mark and ding. Today, like everything else in our fast paced, ready-made world, rustic looks are produced right in the factories. You can now custom order the level of distressing that suits your style.

You can order a table with light distressing placed randomly throughout or go all out and order a top that is hand planed or rough cut to look like a flea market find.  My clients truly get the best of both worlds. The charming look of old, with the factory warranties of new for up to 10 years. Chair styles can come and go but a solid table could last forever. Don’t be afraid to mix things up. Rustic mixes well with looks that could be considered shabby chic or with things that are more contemporary, glamorous, or retro.

Break the rules and do what makes your heart sing. Mix and match and most of all, USE your beautiful furniture!
