Trish Markvoort loves furniture. After all, life just wouldn’t be as comfortable without it! Whether it’s a family heirloom, or something rad you picked up curbside, she can update and refurbish that special piece so you can enjoy it for years to come.
Trish began her formal training in 1996 at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. After graduating, she worked briefly as an upholsterer before being sidetracked by other passions that eventually drew her to British Columbia.
But Trish has always had an eye for furniture and when she found herself in Vancouver in 2012, she plunged back into the trade, apprenticing at Fabulous Furnishings in North Vancouver.
In the summer of 2015, Trish realized her dream of moving back to the Sunshine Coast – where she has lived and visited on and off since 2006 – and setting up her own shop in Powell River.
