Our 12,000 Sq foot Showroom
It’s a pleasure to make your home a tasteful expression of your personal style
at Creative Home Furnishings. The showroom has been providing the local
community (Coquitlam, Tri Cities, Vancouver, North Shore) and beyond, with the finest in solid wood furniture since 1989. Within our 12,000
square foot space you will find contemporary solid wood furniture made by
Canadian craftsmen, the majority of our product is made within a 100 km radius
of us. We also specialize in
(some examples), and have our own exclusive,
in-house designed lines of furniture -

Our furniture is locally made and
built to order. A
number of the woodworkers who supply us are able to make custom modifications to
ensure that our pieces will fit your space. Tasteful accessories, great lighting fixtures, select print and
original artwork complete our décor selection. Our focus is in providing
versatile furnishings, which suit the spaces and needs of both
and house owners alike.
Our lines appeal to a wide range of clientele, and it’s not unusual to have
customers who have purchased pieces in the past return, because they are
downsizing and need smaller scale furniture without sacrificing quality and
style. Nor to have their grown children come to furnish their own apartments or
family homes. This is all because variety and quality are important parts of
this showroom’s approach to individualized interiors.
We provide a very high level of customer service. Our staff have a passion for
design and are able to provide in-house consultations to assist you in creating
your perfect home. Whether you need guidance with choosing colour palettes,
appropriate sized pieces for your space and lifestyle, or a sounding board for
your style decisions, we are here for you. Our service even extends to designing
custom pieces which can meet your unique needs, such as stereo cabinets to fit
your components, or a buffet to fit an alcove.
We believe in fair pricing
all year round. Our pricing is very competitive so that you can feel comfortable
making your purchases whenever you need to, and not just when there is a "sale".
We don't believe in hiking up the pricing, so that we can run seasonal blanket
discounts. In fact with the exception of sometimes discounting floor models in
order to bring in new display pieces, we don't actually run sales. If for some
reason you do manage to find pricing that is lower than ours on product that we
carry, then we encourage you to bring in a written quote, and we will try our
best to price match or even beat the pricing.
Our focus on locally made furniture helps to maintain a smaller environmental
footprint, and enhances our eco-focus. Made from materials such as western
utilizing low VOC finishes, our furniture lines promote environmental
responsibility. Our collection contains furniture for your entire home, from
dining tables and
The owners Maria Lopez and Blair Ballard, have a passion for
great design. Their combined education in engineering and architecture were able
to come into play when they not only renovated an existing house to create a bed
and breakfast, but also designed and built a new house on British Columbia’s
Sunshine Coast. While building the new home, they were able to incorporate the
wood that was cleared from the lot, into some of the design features of the
home. This experience served as inspiration to take on a larger enterprise where
creativity is key.
Maria and Blair purchased Creative Home Furnishings in 2007.
They saw the store as an opportunity to meld their passion for great design with
their love of locally built product. In a world where so much of what we buy is
mass produced, it becomes a challenge to find something that is made with care.
The Boxwood and Tangent collections are the initial results of this quest: the
clean designs, strong lines and solid construction evoke the vernacular of the
westcoast, and the cultures which have influenced it.
They know what it takes to create a home, and their previous
careers in hospitality have given them a strong customer service focus.
At Creative Home Furnishings, Maria and Blair and their team
can assist you in both creating and designing spaces which will show off your
home and, suit your lifestyle.
Have nothing in
your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful
