Great Canadian Suppliers

white nov 12

I am always thrilled when a client wants to support our Great Canadian Suppliers. We in the furniture industry are very fortunate to have so many wonderful Canadian products available to us. But first be very specific, if you are out furniture shopping on what you are asking for, a Canadian supplier of furniture does not always mean made in Canada. If it is important to you to have it made in Canada then tell your sales associate exactly that, if all you ask for is a Canadian supplier, then it says something completely different. In my 28 years of selling furniture I will say this, any of the Canadian suppliers I have dealt with have been fantastic. The sofa in this photo is from Decor-Rest, a well known, excellent quality manufacturer since 1972, and their upholstery is made in North America. Decor-Rest has a wide selection of products and styles to choose from, with a fashion forward selection of fabrics. The chair is from Brentwood, again an excellent Canadian supplier, and also made in Canada. Comfort, style, durability all part of the selections available from Brentwood. The bedroom set and dining room set are again Canadian suppliers, Canadian made and both offer solid wood products. The dining room is Bermex, with so many options it is impossible to list, the bedroom is Durham Furniture, a name you can trust. The rug and ottoman are both from Surya, a company with a Canadian office, with absolutely fabulous product with amazing customer service, but not made in Canada, so this is why I say be specific in what you are asking for. My experience has given me the opportunity to meet many of the owners, sales reps and factory workers for numerous Canadian suppliers, be confident in the fact that you are supporting some very hard working, talented and proud people.

Whether wanting an entire bedroom set, as seen in this photo, or maybe you just want to start with this dramatic bed, you won’t go wrong with this king panel bed. The Vintage West Collection has a dark charcoal finish and has wonderful silver accents, giving a very dramatic appeal. cr-2295SC_1012For a cozy reading space in this master suite I selected the Garrison Slip Cover chair from CRLaine. Shown in Chapman Linen, it is the perfect scale for the Vintage West collection from Hooker Furniture. The chair is 30W x 40.5D x 41H, not too large so a pair fits nicely in a reading corner or in front of a fireplace.lolo-EMOREB-01IVCC_lgLet’s complete our rustic and refined bedroom with an area rug from the Emory Collection by Loloi rugs.
