Warm up to BC woodcrafters: Get cosy for fall with these local home furnishings

With summer sun waning a little earlier and mornings just a little crisper, it’s time to get cosy at home.

Where the last few months have been about building those inviting outdoor spaces, in September we turn our attention inside, to creating warm, welcoming interiors to see us through those fall rains and winter storms.

For many, especially here on the West Coast, that means decorating with solid wood furnishings that reflect this place we call home, whether with the beachy vibe of rustic, light-stained oak or the deep, rich hues of espresso-stained maple.

The good news is that many of those furnishings are also crafted right here in southern British Columbia, notes Parry Gallagher, owner of Coombs Junction Furniture.

In fact, Gallagher is shining a light on many of those local manufacturers throughout September, offering shoppers 10 per cent off all furnishings from BC woodcrafters, plus an extra five per cent off any in-stock woodcraft items.

“We’re proud to be local and proud to showcase our talented British Columbia furniture builders and the relationships we’ve built with them over our 13 years here,” Parry notes. “With so many to choose from, we have BC-made furnishings that not only fit your home, but elevate it – and all can be custom ordered.”

Here’s a look at some of the BC manufacturers to watch right now:
