About Canadian Wood Species

Sustainably sourced Canadian wood species from the province of British Columbia (B.C.) are becoming increasingly popular among furniture designers for their natural beauty, durability, and strong environmental reputation. From Canada’s western most region comes rich and warm-toned Douglas-fir, along with elegant and economical Western Hemlock—both affordable alternatives over traditional hardwood species.

Versatile and easy to work with, these eco-friendly wood species are ideal for a wide range of traditional and contemporary furniture and home furnishing solutions. And Canadian wood products give you the added assurance that you’re meeting strict ecological and forest regulations, with the certifications to prove it.
