Ottawa Design – UpDated Furniture


Sydney discovered another great design store in Ottawa – UpDated Furniture, located at City Centre, on the back ramp, Bay #222, owned by Stephanie Halin and Ken McKay.

If you’re looking for that piece that you just can’t seem to find anywhere else, this is definitely the place to go. They rescue and refinish vintage furniture so it doesn’t end up in the landfill, so you can go in, find something you like, pick out the finish and/or fabric and have it turned into your dream piece. Sydney did just that and you can see the before and after at the end of this post.

If you’re not in Ottawa, check out their website and order online. You can also follow them on Facebook and Instagram at upd_furniture. If you are in Ottawa, drop in for a visit!

I love my new old chair.
This store totally reminds me of my Granddad’s house and garage – I felt like I was taken back in time.
I absolutely agree with you – it is like walking into someone’s back shed and finding all these wonderful things.
What a great find – another Ottawa design treasure.
Once again, Myles has introduced us to a fabulous store – he’s in the know, you know.
And the service is amazing – Stephanie has to be one of the most energetic people around.
When I picked out the fabric for my chair, she assured me it was a perfect choice.
And that was great for you because once in a while you second guess yourself.
They called me when they were starting to work on the chair and told me I’d have in the next week. More great customer services.
I think we’re in fierce agreement – anyone in Ottawa looking for some furniture should check out Updated Furniture.
