Name: Country Living Furnishings & Design

Origins: Country Living Furnishings & Design first opened its doors 15 years ago. Current owner, Rhonda Fairhurst took over five years ago. Under Fairhurst’s guidance the store has shifted from primarily selling pine cabinets to offering a wide range of home decor and accessories. Country Living has 14 employees at two locations and a warehouse.

Sells: High-quality home furnishing lines from exclusive Canadian manufacturers. These manufacturers are able to create custom pieces that reflect your personal style and decor ambitions. The store also carries a wide selection of accessories, from mirrors and lighting to drapery and artwork.

Best Buy: Canadian-made, made-to-order furniture from brands such as Barrymore, Camlen, Hotzon Furniture, Hudson Furniture, Stylus and True North Furniture is the best bet at Country Living Furnishings & Design, but the store’s unique decor pieces are also worth checking out. It also provides interior design services.

The Space: The vast 17th Avenue location is set up with several aspirational room displays that are decorated with beautifully crafted furniture and small details such as interesting art and funky accessories. Another noticeable and stand-out feature throughout the store are the chandeliers in each display area. It’s almost as if the name doesn’t quite fit – there is much more here than “country.”
