We’re always keen to showcase Canadian vintage furniture, as we did with a series of posts last year. In this post, we turn the spotlight on Toronto’s Reff Furniture.
Reff was co-founded in 1964 by three brothers and a cousin—Robert, Eric, Frank and Fred Drechsel. They launched the firm with a plan to create seating and office systems. Their motto? “Quality. Value. Service.” (Drechsel)
Their first forays into design went beyond what they had initially envisioned to include dressers, headboards, and other bedroom furniture that is still popular today.
With nationwide celebrations of our country’s 150th birthday taking place next month, we figured it’s the perfect time to shift the focus of our “Great Mid-Century Designers” series to Canada. In a short series of posts, we’ll look at the evolution of Canadian modern furniture and shine a spotlight on our most iconic mid-century designers.
