We are a family-owned, Canadian Company that provides local, handcrafted Canadian furniture. St. Jacobs Furnishings strives to provide high quality furniture that will last you and your family for generations.
For over 30 years, St. Jacobs Furnishings Co. has worked with Waterloo Region's finest Mennonite builders, along with only Canadian suppliers. Nowhere in our story is there packaging or a warehouse when it comes to solid wood furniture.
All our solid wood furniture is hand finished with traditional methods, dating back to our early days in the St. Jacobs Farmers' Market. Originally, all the finishing on the furniture was done right on-site by hand with paint brushes. Tables were picked up on Mondays, and usually finished by Thursday. Our builders’ shops were small, often just a part of a driving shed that would also house farm equipment and winter wood storage. Though things have changed, our dedication to old world traditions and quality stay the same.
This commitment to quality ensures that all of our furniture is handcrafted solid wood, primarily utilizing dovetailing construction. Our furniture is offered in various wood types, including:
- Speckled and Premium Cherry
- Oak and ¼ Cut Oak
- Brown and Wormy Maple
St. Jacobs Furnishings is also proud to offer an exclusive line of barn board furniture made from reclaimed wood from decades (or even century) old pine barns. Barn board furniture comes with its own story told through the wood’s nail holes, stains, saw marks, and unique graining. No two pieces are ever the same, bringing its unique character right into your home.
