No, we’re not talking maple syrup (although that would be delicious), ice hockey, or the Toronto Raptors - we’re talking Canadel. Founded over 30 years ago, Canadel makes great quality tables, chairs, stools, benches, hutches, kitchen islands - just about every piece of furniture you could possibly need or want for your dining room, breakfast nook, or even parts of your living room - ottomans, media units, sofa tables, etc.
Now let me get my facts straight - over 3 million finishes, infinite (plus 2) configurations, legs, legs, legs, pedestals from here to eternity, 2000 fabrics - something like that. Hang on - their website tells me that there are over 9 million options, so I wasn’t that far off.
Here’s how it works: Decide what your style is - rustic? timelessly classic? urban industrial? Once that’s been established, we can delve into the size and shape of the table and whether you want a leaf or two. From there, you will often have a choice of leg shapes or pedestal styles. And then there are the finishes… oh so many finishes! Want the top to be a different color than the base? No problem. Want just a touch of distressing? Can do. Need chairs? The range of styles that Canadel offers is extensive - Scandinavian-inspired, ladder back, fully upholstered, all wood, with and without arms - there are 80 models for you to choose from and 9 books of fabrics, if you want to go that route.
Made of sustainably harvested birch, the mill that Canadel sources their timber from plants many saplings for each tree they cut down, as Canada recognizes their forests to be a resource that needs to be protected. Lead time - about 6 to 8 weeks, but it’s worth the wait! Here’s a small flavor of what Canadel can do:
