Calling all wine and liquor enthusiasts, and all those who love gorgeous, handcrafted, heirloom furniture… we have the perfect pieces in store for you!
As you will notice each time you visit the store, we have a wide selection of hand-crafted furniture and decor created by the amazing, local craftsman, Doug Klassen. Doug is energized through learning and motivated by a challenge. His recent pieces reveal a marked return to his childhood soil. “Growing up in Zaire, and witnessing people with very little, [he is] strongly influenced by the use of refuse, scrap, and what ever simple materials they had available to them to create beautiful, practical things.” Doug’s work is not only useful, high quality pieces that are designed to endure with the lightest environmental footprint, but, with a focus on eco-conscientiousness, saves wood & other materials from the fate of refuse and immortalizes its beauty. As a recovering perfectionist, designing and building with barrel staves & “scrap” is the perfect media to stretch his boundaries.
The Muskoka chairs are extremely comfortable, the bistro and bar sets are perfect for your morning coffee or afternoon drink, and his assortment of candle holders, trays, frames, mirrors, and wine racks make the perfect finishing piece to any room! (P.S. They also make wonderful wedding presents!) Each piece is beautiful and uniquely its own, so make sure you stop by the store to purchase your favourite piece before it’s gone!
As always, we look forward to seeing you soon!
