Globalization has transformed the Canadian Furniture Industry. Globalization forced local manufacturers to take furniture making offshore in search of economical labor and material options. With this offshoring came a drop-in furniture quality. Today, Canadian consumers have settled for disposable furniture at high costs. However, there are several reasons to invest in Canadian made furniture –
Wood manufacturing in a Canadian Warehouse
Canadian-made furniture is made from high-quality wood sourced from Canada itself. Canadian furniture does not use unreliable products such as veneer, plastic, cardboard, etc. Our manufacturers use solid dried wood to create a state of the art pieces with high precision and detailing effort.
Properly built and dried solid Canadian wood furniture will last a lifetime. In fact, with some proper maintenance and care, there should not be any reason that you can not pass it on to the next generation. Real wood is stronger, more durable, and easily repaired. It can always be upholstered and refinished by a professional to create something new.
Did you know Canadian furniture has a rich history dating back to the 1800s? The industry mainly developed in Ontario in the last half of the 19th century. The legacy continues today with companies that started manufacturing and selling quality Canadian furniture, over 100 years ago.
Scraps in a landfill
Due to the increased use of low-quality imported furniture products, there are more replacements rather than repairs in furniture. Consequently, more furniture ends up in landfills and harms the environment, thereby, increasing our costs.
Shopping Canadian goods can help you support local businesses and avoid long supply chain costs. The Canadian furniture industry employs more than 100,000 people across the country. So, buying Canadian furniture provides employment to people in lots of sectors such as retail, manufacturing, timber, forestry, etc. This is good enough to support the Canadian economy
and keep Canadians earning.
