Adam (with the help of his dad) taught himself how to create beautiful furniture pieces, home decor, kitchens and built-ins. He has a special interest in Canadian Heritage, specifically the Upper Canada period.
Adam has worked with a Local, National and International clientele and has been hired by various corporate and small business companies and government establishments (hospitals, schools, city departments) to create custom pieces.
Many of our furniture designs have their roots in Formal and Vernacular Canadian History (the 1780s to the 1900s).
Some of our clients are serious collectors, while others are just beginning their interest in heritage pieces.
Upper Canada Furniture has diverse cultural roots in four major furniture traditions: French Canadian, Anglo-American, Polish and Germanic.
You may notice names like Chippendale, Queen Anne, Hepplewhite, Sheraton, Pennsylvania German, Primitive, and Shaker. Each of these names are connected to a period in time and a distinctive furniture style.
"Much Upper Canadian furniture represents country furniture at its best - honest construction, excellent materials and a reliance on basic line and simplicity"
- Howard Pain in the book The Heritage of Upper Canada Furniture.
Each custom piece we build is unique; whether it's a heritage piece from a specific period in time or a more modern piece or kitchen. However, today being special or unique is not enough - these pieces must also be functional.
We're happy to furnish your home, cottage, or business.
