Stunning Canadian Made Showhome Custom Furniture

I was visiting my sister recently and marveling at her 100-year old house and all the fine details that each room possessed.  I was amazed at the craftsmanship displayed throughout her home. The high ceilings and the handmade moldings around the windows were details that added beauty and functionality to her space without calling too much attention to themselves. 

As we chatted I noticed her dining room chairs.  They were the same chairs that my mother had in her home and raised all her 11 children with.  They were beautiful and when, out of curiosity, I asked how old they were I was delighted to find out that they were more than 50 years old and layered with almost as many layers of different paints to match the latest trends.  These were good solid chairs. 

They were definitely a good investment as sometimes it is hard to find wooden chairs that will last 5 years!!

This is why at Showhome Furniture we do what we do.  We have worked hard to find good quality furniture that can withstand the rigor of today’s active family from a local company.  Not only do we want the best furniture, we also want furniture that has been built with love, attention to detail and in the most ethical way possible and one that supports our local Canadian industry.

At Showhome Furniture we are transparent about where our furniture comes from and who it is that builds it.  Just as we don’t take shortcuts with our furniture, we do not run a business at the expense of our employee’s lives, or at the expense of our customers wallet!

We love them because they are quality through and through, and did I mention that they are made right here in Canada?  That means that your hard-earned money stays in our country benefiting more than just your home at each purchase.

At our custom Canadian made furniture factories, it is obvious that they have been raised with good honest Canadian values and this shows in their workmanship.  Not only are their furniture stunning, beautiful enough to grace the nicest home, but they are also truly a quality work of art that when stripped down one can see is made to last throughout the ages.  Corners are reinforced with blocks, staples and then glue making their pieces solid. 

Their wood frames are made of a combination of kiln-dried hardwood and thick CNC engineered plywood parts that give accuracy and precision every time.

Showhome Furniture knows that buying new furniture is an investment and we don’t take your investment lightly. 

We endeavor to do everything that we can to ensure that every piece of furniture that you purchase from us is something that will last throughout the years.

Getting Professional Design Help For Free!

When you need help with your health we all know to go to our doctors. Going to a good doctor saves us time, money and helps us get healthier faster.

When we are needing advice on building, we all know to call a contractor who specializes in the type of work our project requires. A good contractor will know where we can save money on our project and they will suggest different options to help us get the very best results in the end. A good contractor can save us thousands of dollars because they are an expert in the field and know things that we can’t possibly know.

Few of us though, when thinking of designing and decorating our homes think to call a professional designer in. We don’t usually think about doing this because a designer usually cost a lot of money and we think that their service is a luxury.

Just like a good doctor and a good contractor can save us time, money and improve our health and well-being (by saving us stress) a good designer can help you save money and bring great satisfaction into your life. Our homes are one of our most important places to be. It is in our home that we connect with those we love, we rejuvenate our souls and come up with the idea’s and skills to reach our dreams. If there is any place in our lives that we should be reaching out to a professional, it is in helping us create a space that reflects our core beliefs and desires in life.

Bohemian, or Boho, is a style of design that is full of fun eclectic elements.  It contains warm earth colors, patterns and textures.  It is often complimented by vintage furniture and art!!

First, take stalk of what you already have.  Decorating is so fun, but it doesn’t mean it has to cost a ton.  Look around your home, chances are you have already a bunch of neat accessories or pieces of furniture that can be re-purposed or upcycled.  If you have them, use them!

Regardless of what style you are going for, for an authentic boho look, stick to nature-inspired elements.  Earthy tones, natural furniture and soft-textures are some of the most important aspects of a Boho room.

Painting your wall is an inexpensive way to start your Boho room project.  My daughter Ellice is an expert painter and loves to work magic on her walls.  Mixing colours and techniques can really add a bit of magic to your Boho room.

Remember to layer.  If you have a small chair in your room add a soft blanket and a long haired pillow.  Put a rug on the floor and add plants on the table and ground.  All this layering make the room feel cozy and very Bohemian!!

4 Ways To Use Modern Farmhouse Design In Your Home

Modern farmhouse design elements are so fun to use. They are the perfect way of joining the more traditional farm feel with a cleaner more modern space. Today we are going to share some of our Showhome Furniture ‘design secrets’ for you to use in your home. If you want some help in figuring this all out, don’t hesitate to call us and book your free 1-hour design consultation with our talented highend designers.

The most important piece of modern farmhouse design is considering the uses of the home. Making sure that whatever you do is functional and practical is an important part of any designing. Think about the flow of each room, the lighting the furniture and usage. What is working and what is not. If you need help in this area, just be sure to ask our designers during your free consultation.

Next look for the right color to decorate with. Modern farmhouse design liberally uses the soft neutral pallet. Soft tans, taupes, vanilla, and warm greys are vital to the look and feel of modern farmhouse design.

Choosing the right furniture is important. Modern farmhouse uses warm natural furniture like leather and wood. These materials bring inside a bit of nature in a simple way. Leather couches are a great choice, as well as solid wood tables and side tables.

Decorating your shelves and surfaces is a must for modern farmhouses, but they must be done thoughtfully and not excessively. Modern farmhouse design uses natural material such as wood, succulent, metal and glass. It mixes a bit of the traditional with the modern but in both cases accessories are used sparingly. Mixing textures and types of material is super fun to do and will give you great results.

Use White

Using white accessories is a great way of accenting your home and keeping it feeling light, airy and still warm and comforting.

Use Pillows and Blankets

The use of pillows and blankets are a great way of obtaining the cozy farmhouse feel, white keeping it modern and bright.

The modern farmhouse design works well with or without rugs. Depending on the room and what you do in that space, you may want to consider a simple shag or stick with a more traditional wool rug.

We hope these tips will help you design your room with confidence. If you need help, don’t hesitate to contact us.

5 Fabulous Ways To Incorporate Transitional Design In Your Home!

Transitional design is one of the hottest new ways of designing your home and for good reason! Simply put, traditional style is an engaging blend of contemporary and traditional design elements! This mix creates an attractive sophisticated space that is inviting and warm. It blends the straight lines and curves, incorporates texture and smooth finishes to create a peaceful orderly and intriguing space.

The first element of transitional design is color.

The colors in traditional design are softer neutral colors, allow the furnitures colors and lines to be showcased. Some of the top colors are grey, taupes, tans and vanilla. Remember that each of these colors come in a cool tone or warm tones.

Next is the furniture.

If there is one thing we know and love at Showhome Furniture, it is furniture! Transitional design focuses less on the more ornate solid wood furniture and uses more of the straight and streamlined furniture. This lends your space to looking fresher and more orderly.

Lighting is an important part of transitional design

Light fixtures for transitional design are simple, sophisticated and have a minimalistic feel. They are practical and beautiful. They tend to be less fancy, but not as simple as modern ones. They blend curved and straight lines and incorporate natural material like wood and natural fabric.

Mixing textural elements is important.

Transitional design is similar to modern in how clean and uncluttered it is, but it adds more warmth and interest by mixing a variety of textural elements together. Wood, glass, fabric, metal, and plants give the room a sense of variety and interest the eye, without feeling cluttered and disorganized.

Lastly, to finish off your traditional design look, add accessories. Unlike boho, or traditional design, the accessories are kept to a minimum but each have a very useful, beautiful purpose. Art work is incorporated but usually larger pieces are picked over smaller ones.

If you want more information on transitional design don’t hesitate to call Showhome Furniture and ask. We offer a free 1-hour design consultation to all our customers and would love to hear from you!

How A Showhome Makeover Changed My Life

This is a true experience from one of our Showhome Furniture Customers:

It was late at night, when I was almost in tears that I confessed to my husband that I just needed a break! We had seven kids, were in the middle of renovating our basement and my well was dry. I knew that being a mother to so many children was truly my dream, and so was finishing my basement. At that moment though, my dream just seemed less romantic than I had imagined and a lot harder. My husband listened to me patiently and then agreed to take me away.

After a few phone calls to grandparents the next day our trip was planned. In just two days, my husband, two oldest kids and I were going to go down to Utah for an educational conference. The five younger kids would be watched by my parents. This was a dream come true and I was so grateful for my husband and my parents for helping me get the break I knew I really needed.

The week was wonderful and I came back to my home refreshed and ready to hug each of my babies, wipe their tears, listen to their stories and be their happy mama once more. Truly being a mother is my favorite thing in the world and I was anxious to get home.

It was late when I got home, and to my surprise my home was packed. Two of my sisters, as well as all their kids were there, along with a few neighborhood kids and more. I was confused and then over whelmed to tears. In every single room of my house, my home was transformed. Walls were painted, couches replaced, new furniture was everywhere and so were smiling delighted faces. I was floored! Who arranged for all of these miracles to happen?

It was then I was brought downstairs to my junky unfinished basement. I was stunned. New flooring had been laid, drywall had been fixed, stools lined my bar, new chairs and rugs filled the room. Without me even knowing it, my whole house was transformed by the Showhome Furniture crew. Somehow they had heard about my family and came to the rescue. They gathered my family and neighbors and in just one week did months worth of renovations!

That night my house was transformed, but more than that, my heart was transformed. Sometimes as a mother, especially a mother of many children, your time is taken up by so many people you need to take care of that you get tired. You sometimes wish that there was someone there to take care of you. This is not something most mothers expect, and I certainly did not. The fact that so many people cared enough about me to help me with a task so overwhelming and daunting.

My life was forever changed by their love, their attention to detail and generosity!
