You’re one-of-a-kind! Why can’t your furniture be?

We create custom built furniture you can be proud of, right here on Vancouver Island.

Because you decide what home means.


We believe in making things the way they used to be made – handcrafted, with care and extreme attention to detail – but we’re far from old fashioned. With each of our pieces, we carefully blend modern aesthetics and timeless design. Each Hartmann’s piece is hand-built in Nanaimo with ethically and locally-sourced, kiln-dried British Columbia hardwoods. Combining old-school methods and modern technology, we strive to bring our customers the absolute best balance of quality and value. Even better, you can customize your furniture to your liking by choosing your size, leg design and leg colours. Because you deserve furniture as unique as you.

Live Edge Furniture

These truly distinct, sculptural pieces will become the focus point of any room. You’ll love the raw and natural beauty of the wood’s curves. If you’re looking for a discussion piece, this is the way to go – every one-of-a-kind live edge piece has its own story to tell.

Everything you can image!

Custom Design, Build and Coverings

Don’t see what you want? Don’t worry—we can custom-order the colours and fabrics you want. Our staff is very design-conscious and can help you find the perfect pieces for the atmosphere of your home. Bring in paint chips, fabric swatches or carpet samples and we will do an in-store or at-home consultation.

A new spin on tradition.

Straight Edge Furniture

Our straight edge furniture proves there’s nothing boring about tradition. Merging sleek modern design with the contrast of natural wood, these hand-built pieces are guaranteed to stand out. With every straight edge piece we make, we strive for straight, clean lines, crafted with passion and care.


“We are extremely pleased with the solid black walnut, Queen Anne period furniture designed and produced to match our antique chairs. The quality, pride of craftsmanship, attention to detail and finish is very evident in the final product. This craftsmanship has produced furniture that will be appreciated for years and will become family heirlooms.”
