We're doing furniture a little differently.
Your Messen furniture is made to measure by giving you control over the design process.
In addition to available standard standard sizes, the width, height, and depth of your piece can be fully customized to make sure it fits perfectly in your home - even the baseboards. We use a special computer assisted design and manufacturing process that adapts our styles to the dimensions you specify, allowing you to pick any design and make it work for you.
Beyond custom dimensions, few furniture designers today offer a wide selection of colours. At Messen, we understand what it means to have a custom look and since colors and textures are at the core of a room, with Messen you can pick the ones that fit your space. We offer all our furniture in a large variety of different Canadian-made swatches, each creating its own unique look and feel in your space.
We're proud to introduce features that allow you to shop for furniture like you never have before. Whether you want a background piece that doesn't steal the show, or a centerpiece to capture everyone's attention, Messen is the perfect place to start - or end - your home furnishing journey.
At Messen, we believe the easiest way to support your community is to shop locally whenever possible.
We source and manufacture our furniture in the communities where we operate. Doing this is not simply a branding decision - it is an economic decision, and we firmly believe our made in Canada philosophy is why we can offer such incredibly high quality custom products at such a competitive price. When you shop with us, you are supporting not just your country, but your local community and its workers. Messen uses some of the highest quality tools anywhere in the world - operated by some of the most qualified technicians. And it just so happens that the people who proudly build your Messen furniture are also your neighbors.
Here at Messen, we live and breath quality, and your custom furniture won't just be a fixture, but a talking point.
It all starts with beautiful materials that are safe for you and your home. We use a super-premium, ultra-low formaldehyde emitting, engineered wood for our furniture that also happens to be 100% recycled. Not only are these materials durable and strong, but aesthetically they bring a depth and feel to furniture that cheaper alternatives lack.
Next, our furniture is made with a stronger, more durable core. The panels we use are built stronger and with more glue than cheaper counterparts, which means that they last longer. We never use "honeycomb" cores - a sneaky trick some high-volume manufacturers use to make cheaper products. Beyond simply being made of a higher quality material, we also use thicker parts. Our furniture is made from material that is 19mm (.75 in.) thick. This means our furniture doesn't just hold more, it's more stable and has more presence when on display.
Third, we edgeband everything. Edgebanding is the way you protect the edges of material after it's been cut. We edgeband every exposed edge that we can with a high quality, ultra-realistic engineered veneer that matches your chosen material. With the exception of your trim cutout and edges that have joints, every edge of your Messen furniture is protected. With fewer exposed edges, our furniture is less susceptible to spills and and your hands are less susceptible to splinters.
Lastly, we use only one fastener to make life easier. To assemble our furniture, you need only two tools and two parts: dowels and cams (included in the package) and a screwdriver and hammer. That's it. Even better, there's no cluttered mess of instructions to follow. Each piece of furniture has short video showing you how to assemble your furniture, regardless of the dimensions you ordered it in.
With benefits like these, your friends and family will notice immediately that you furniture wasn't just made by anybody. It was made by Messen, and it was made to measure.
Sustainability isn't just a slogan, it's integral to our company's success.
It starts with certified recycled materials. All of Messen's furniture is made from a 100% recycled, super-premium, wood product. The decorative panels used in all of our furniture is of a strictly superior quality, and sourced only from Canadian leaders in this industry. These panels are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as well as the Composite Panel Association's Eco-Certified Composite Grademark Program for meeting some of the industry's highest standards in environmental sustainability, and have received other certifications relating to both quality and environmental practice.
From there, you need a durable product that stands the test of time. Sustainability isn't just choosing a product that is made with environmental principles in mind, but choosing a product that needs to be replaced less often. Messen furniture is made with thicker and more durable materials, creating a final product that is less prone to damage and warping due to load or time.
And don't forget, shipping matters. Your Messen furniture is made in your community, creating a logistic and supply chain that is more conducive to efficient transportation. The raw materials for our products are sourced close to the factory that makes them. From there, those are shipped to a distributor in your community and can be accessed by multiple manufacturers, including Messen. We then build our furniture just for you in the city where you live and ship it straight to you. That's a lot less transportation than mass-manufactured alternatives.
The result is truly forward looking. Your Messen furniture is made with sustainability and the environment in mind, and we like to thing this is reflected in every piece that we make.
