Here are some facts:
- The furniture is very well made with solid materials (solid wood, glass, iron) and can easily become heirlooms to pass down through your generations.
- The prices are very reasonable, as well. I seen a lot of sale signs that were amazing prices and inquired if those prices were just on the in-store pieces and was surprised to hear that the sale prices also applied to ordering your customized pieces!
- Although it is a Canadian company, they have retailers all over North America!
Canadel has been operating since 1982 but had been only available through retail furniture stores, as one of the many companies the store would represent. Moncton, NB (my city) became the first city to have a Canadel-only retail store! How exciting is that! They have opened a few more Canadel-only stores since then and continue to remain in general furniture stores all over North America. Visit their website to find a retailer near you!
So. Let's get to the fun stuff . . . designing your own furniture! You can visit their website, browse through the different lines, choose one and then customize it to your tastes with different wood finishes and different fabrics for the upholstery. I've done up a couple. Take a look!
Here is what a typical design screen looks like once you've chosen a line. In this screenshot, I chose the Champlain line. The menu bar along the top is the available products in that line. The menu bar on the left is your selectable options for that product. In this screenshot, what you would do next is choose whether you want a round, rectangular, oval, or square table. Then, more options in your selected shape will pop up. And on it goes.
For my local readers, here is the address of the Canadel store.
1690 Mountain Road, Moncton, NB
