Anne Quinn delivers made in Canada Solid Wood furniture.
There are so many advantages to buying locally made furniture. Our suppliers’ comes from just outside of Kitchener Waterloo, so it’s an added bonus that they are just 2 hours away. When you purchase local, you are not paying for expensive shipping fees and excess packaging. All your money is going into building quality furniture. Part of what we offer is custom made pieces and having the ability to easily communicate without any language barriers, or time zone makes a big difference. Also, if there’s ever an issue, because the supplier is just a few hours away, we can easily bring the pieces back to the supplier and get the issue fixed. The good thing with the made in Canada furniture is that is built by the Mennonites. The Mennonites have been building furniture for hundreds of years, and their skills and techniques have built up over time.
The Mennonites hand-select the kiln-dried cherry, maple and oak hardwoods. You would think that Mennonites are stuck with the old way of doing things, but that isn’t true and they continually invest in adding state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment to their facilities. The process starts with Computer Aided Design (CAD) systems to ensure every piece is designed with accuracy and consistency. New world and old worlds combine with the use of both automated sanding and hand sanding of each piece before applying a finish using advanced technologies including post-catalyzed vinyl sealers and post catalyzed conversion varnishes that give our pieces the high quality, consistent finish.
