Let's Celebrate Canadian-made!

Since Canada day is around the corner, I thought I’d celebrate by highlighted some of my favourite Canadian-made furniture! I pulled together five selections that represent some of the best quality Canadian-made furniture and reflect some of the hottest trends in home décor! Enjoy!

 

1. Buffet by Camlen Furniture. Known for their attention to detail, quality of choice materials (like 150-year-old reclaimed wood) Camlen Furniture creates heirloom-worthy pieces that would work in any style of home. I love the white wash finish (Sturbridge Crackled) of this piece. The sleek ebony top gives it a dapper finish. It’s the perfect blend of rustic and poise!

2. Cloverleaf rocking chair snowshoe seat and backing by Nordik Workshop. This chair… ok it rocks! I love this! Featuring a “showshoe seat”, could it be more Canadian? This chair is a gorgeous example of Canadian craftsmanship and I LOVE that it will work well with all the rustic, reclaim décor we are seeing. I think a rocking chair looks amazing in any home and reminds us of simple times. I definitely want this piece in my loft!

3. Armchair by Bertanie. This chair, from Bertanie’s Traditions collection is classical glamour at its best. I find that many of us are returning to more “dressed-up” dining rooms and this chair would be a perfect fir. It would also look amazing as an accent chair in a formal living room or entryway. The detail on the seat back is so lovely!

4. Emotion Lounge by Collection A2000 (A division of Alphavic inc). Every home needs a good lounge or “fainting sofa”. This style works so well in an oversized master bedroom (if you have some open space to fill) or as accent seating in a living room. The soft stripe of the fabric on this lounge is a perfect colour complement to all the pastel and soft grey shades we have seen make their way into the home recently.

5. G5601X Table by Geovin. I finally have a dining space, so I have been thinking long and hard about he style of table I would like to purchase. I love harvest tables, classic tables but recently my thoughts have turned to round tables. The G5601X Table Top Round by Geovin has just the right amount of classic tailored lines, would really bring intimacy to a dining space (this is great especially if I have a date!!) and I like how much leg room you’ll have because of the pedestal base. This is a great investment piece that will never go out of style!
