“During our search for dining room furniture we visited various showrooms but didn’t find anything that looked good, so we know we’d have to have something customized for us because we just couldn’t find beautiful, solid wood, impressive dining suites.
We went downtown to a lot of boutique-type places, but they tended to have smaller furniture that was designed for apartments and condos. So then we visited bigger chains and to places like DeBoer’s. We didn’t find anything at these places that we even vaguely liked. The few things that we felt we could live with were outlandishly expensive. Anything that was reasonably-priced, we didn’t like, and the quality was poor.
Our lack of success led us into running a Google search for ‘dining room furniture Toronto’ where we found you. When we visited your home showroom, we got the right perspective in terms of seeing what the furniture was going to look like in a home environment, so our visit was very helpful.
At Anne Quinn Furniture we got one-on-one attention unlike the bigger stores where you often get a sales guy whose only interest is his commission. You took the time to give us tips about the pedestals and chairs because we came to you thinking of a different style than the one we finally settled on, and Christine let us know “If you have space restrictions you’ll want the chairs to slide in; watch out because you could only slide them so far” which got us to thinking, so we changed our order as a result of her insights.
I liked that Christine gave us the wood samples because we’d just had our kitchen done so we brought them home, set them down around the furniture and appliances that were in place here and said “Okay, this one is going to fit; this one isn’t”. She gave us some of the fabric samples too.
Pressurized sales are not for me. I don’t like people in my face. Christine isn’t a salesperson in this traditional sense.
We knew right up front about the wait time, so we adapted. We said, “Okay, well, that’s fine”. It was fun to see the updates. Getting the pictures and getting the updates helped. You get to see the progress.
We love our new dining room furniture. It’s stunning! We have recommended you already. Ours was a 100% positive experience so we rate you the highest. Whatever you promised, you delivered, so to me you’re a 10.”
