When we named this furniture line “South Shore”, it brought to mind images of family cottages that are dotted around our beautiful coastline right here in Nova Scotia. These cottages are homes that have been passed down or have been built to resemble that passed down look. Hence this furniture line embodies that by having the classic lines and worn in perfection that will stand the test of time and can be passed down to future generations.

SSBH 60″w x 20″d x 38″h $2715.00 painted in Chelsea Gray with Forrest Floor trim detail. Select from a variety of colours that compliment your cottage or home and we will make you your version of a South Shore piece.


Referred to as a buffet, console, or sideboard this type of piece is so versatile in any home. Put it in your dining room to store family heirlooms, in a living room with a great piece of modern art above, or in a grand hallway welcoming visitors and instantly putting them at ease. This piece has been a labour of love, featuring a new design for us, with the breakfront design and hand painted in that golden creamy colour that can easily be paired with any colour scheme you have going on in your house. The top has rough hewn boards that have been sanded by hand and the whole piece has finished in bees wax polish, giving it that juicy look that we all love here at henhouse.

We are referring to this new design as the MacAskill Sideboard, on our floor now priced at $3210.00.


We love accessorizing furniture with Kravet fabrics! These ikat fabics are oh so luxurious, with textures that will make you melt. Their website is particularly interactive, in which you can select from fabric types, colours, collections or codes to help narrow down the perfect style for your home. Dress up your bed, upholstered pieces and so much more in these great textiles!


We were so excited to see our store featured on the pages of Poppytalk, an amazing Canadian design blog seeking inspiration and fresh ideas from all across the country. This blog is definitely worth checking out, but a quick word of caution: You may be compelled to lose track of time as you scroll through pages and pages of beautiful images, posts and design ideas!! Enjoy, and thanks again Poppytalk (and guest blogger Trudi of Double Happiness Designs).
