Dining & Kitchen

Today’s food fashions are simpler, more down to earth and taken from the terroir. And modern life calls for fewer formal dinners and a more relaxed way of sharing a meal.

The Past Informs the Future

Onion Base Pedestal Table by Camlen pairs easily with upholstered chairs.

The round shape of the Onion Table invites conversation and the desire to linger.  The large, turned “onion shaped” base brings a historical note to ground today’s dining or great room.

Camlen’s tables are practical enough for everyday use with solid wood, hand-planed tops and distressing that highlights the character of the wood. Form meets function.

Companion pieces such as buffets and sideboards can be added in rich espresso tones or soft French grays that are surprisingly good background colours for food. 

You head into evening, soften the room and add a feminine flare with an inspired tablescape that is both simple and instinctive.

A sculptural pendant light reminiscent of French ateliers can be dimmed to set the mood for a culinary feast. 

Give the dining room a refined sense of history with Geovin’s collection of dining tables, sideboards and chairs scaled to suit elegant living spaces. We showcase the Hampton Breakfront Sideboard and Round Pedestal table  flanked by Brooklyn Medallion and X-back chairs in beautiful designer fabrics. To break up the formality, mix styles of chairs or opt for upholstered seat decks and backs in complementary patterns linked by a common colorway. Wood finishes range from New York Black, Espresso and Gunstock Walnut to custom Benjamin Moore paint colors.

Refined living starts here with Geovin’s collections of solid wood dining, living room and bedroom furniture that marry clean classic lines with a traditional respect for solid craftsmanship and quality.

Sitting Pretty

We’ve selected dining chairs with classic shapes and clean lines so style meets comfort. The true test is – can you linger long into the evening in comfort if the conversation gets scintillating? Our selection of dining chairs is a nod to the past with hand-tufted chair backs, slim lines and curved arms to grace the host and hostess positions at the table. Parsons-style side chairs complement the arrangement. Individually applied nailhead trim on matching dining chairs will also make a style statement and every guest will feel special. 

The Rhonda Stool

Counter height stools and bar stools provide the perfect place to perch at an island or bar to snack, visit, or catch up on emails.

We designed the “Rhonda” stool with nailhead trim and metal foot rungs to add an element of interest in the room. An added bonus is its ability to completely tuck under the counter. Whether solid wood, fully upholstered or a combination of both is your preference, with or without backs, we’ll help you pull up a seat in a relaxed and friendly style.

Stop in to either store to preview our fine selection of chairs, stools, benches and ottomans from Barrymore, Stylus, Geovin, Camlen, True North and other leading Canadian manufacturers. You’ll be sitting pretty in no time

Simply Timeless

Maybe every home has one defining object around which the rest of the house radiates.

Savona Trestle Table and Bench by Hudson reflects Canada’s heritage but with a modern sensibility. The double pedestal trestle base has lots of room for legs around the table, especially when paired with its matching bench, to help keep the strength of the look in a room.

The Savona collection also features a turned leg style dining table with a classic design that feels spare, clean, and perfect for the space. We’ll help you choose the right size of table for the number of people you seat daily. It can also be customized with extensions on either end for seating more guests on special occasions.

Handcrafted from solid Canadian maple with smooth or hand-planed surfaces, these tables transition handsomely from daytime casual to formal evenings, especially when paired with upholstered chairs.

Celebrate the season by setting tables and sideboards with colour stories from nature. An assortment of found objects such as driftwood are charming next to pretty botanicals, vintage hurricane lanterns, and sparkly glass vases of varying heights.

 

Add a perfect pair of tall candlestick lamps on the sideboard, set a breathtaking tablescape and you’ll be proud to say “dinner is served.”

Celebrating Our Heritage

Newly Furnished with Old World Charm

Collaborating with the owners on this newly built home led to furniture choices with an “old soul.” The heirloom quality Century trestle table and X-back chairs are designed and distressed to convey the warmth and character of 100-year-old wood, adding textural interest.

The Century line of dining pieces was chosen to floor because it fits with our brand and works particularly well in ranch style homes and open concept or great rooms. Solid wood, Canadian-made, and built for comfort plus the elegance of an age-worn finish… it ticks all the right boxes.

You can sit for hours on these upholstered seat chairs in X-back or keyhole styles.  With a wide range of fabrics to choose from, this chair can be dressy or casual, softening hard surfaces with maximum comfort in a complementary color palette.

Elevate the room with a contrasting buffet in Sturbridge White Glaze from Camlen to provide storage and Old World charm.

Embracing the concept of “continuity” throughout the home, leather seating in the living room contributes to this home’s story of rustic charm. Circular tables are easily reached and conducive for traffic flow in and around the grouping.

Symmetrical mirror placement and finishing touches such as toss cushions, accent pieces and glass vases with fresh flowers balance the yin and yang, inviting the eye to move fluidly around the composition.
