Jay's Furniture has a brand-new showroom close to Powassan. His range of wood furniture is quite large and is handcrafted by Mennonites in southern Ontario. I like his mix of traditional and more contemporary pieces.
Not far from Jay's Furniture, I found Follow Your Heart Woodworking. This operation is run by Julie Rose. She is a passionate woodworker who designs and builds a range of solid wood furniture and accessories. I especially like her signs and rustic pieces with a distressed look, often in bright colours.
Here are some of the highlights from my backroad adventure:
This hutch buffet would fit well
in a modern rustic environment.
$1170. Jay's Furniture.
|Buffet from the same collection. $895.|
Clean lines on this dining set with Parson-style
chairs. $2280. Jay's Furniture.
This double pedestal table and chairs come in
your choice of wood and stain colour. This set
is in cherry and costs $3365. Jay's Furniture.
Colourful display of fun signs. The
one that says Trout Lake came home
with me. Follow Your Heart Woodworking.
Wooden boxes, perfect for sorting
papers (it is more fun when the
boxes are nice, like these!). Follow
Your Heart Woodworking.
"Harvest-style" coffee table. I like the intense
blue on this piece. Follow Your Heart Woodworking.
Hutch in the same intense blue.
