      Featured in OCTA's            2014 Gift Guide!

An annual holiday hit list, which highlights the best and the brightest of Ontario's hand-crafted products and awesome experiences. 

 We think sourcing locally is a great bet in any season and no more is this true than in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

 Trevor’s Pick:

“This year, for our family’s secret Santa exchange, I’ve landed a brother of mine who is really into smoking food on his Big Green Egg.  I thought this year’s I’d take his BBQ tablescape to the next level. Enter Serenity Stumps. Hailing from my hometown of Ottawa, this family run business is making amazing wood stump side tables with sustainable wood from an FSC Certified Forest in Perth (just down the road from a Feast ON favourite, The Masonry!).  The logs are dried out, debarked and sanded with care, before being sealed with an all natural beeswax finish.

 One of these stumps will sit perfectly alongside by brother’s Egg and serve as a table to rest that ever-important barbecue essential, craft beer. Bonus – Serenity also makes great local walnut, cherry and maple cutting and cheese boards.”

    Just thought I would get back to you and let you know that I love the cutting board I got from you. It will make a great wedding present!

I just received the cutting board 10 minutes ago.  I marvel at it's beauty.  What a masterpiece, really! The piece of wood you used is splendid and the engraving is a miracle of perfection.  WOW!   Thank you many, many times for this wonderful piece that will be admired for many years to come and in addition, it will be a fantastic advertising for you, be sure of that!

We were looking to bring the outdoors inside and added a couple natural stumps as end tables to our living room.  Not only did these stumps give our living room a warm natural feeling, they are beautiful and make great conversational pieces. 
 *Consider changing it up a bit and mix in the natural feeling of the outdoors with a Serenity Stump!   
 - Paul Spieckerman  - Anaheim CA
 
I had been in search of these this stump side tables for months and stumbled upon Serenity Stumps!  Chantal was very helpful in guiding us with the best combination for our family room and bathroom.  We absolutely love them, they add warmth to our spaces and they're very versatile. 
-  Cutting Boards are so beautiful as well!     - Cheryl, Ottawa,Ontario

A Serenity Stump cutting board is always a fixture on my living room or dining room table, serving as a centerpiece whether it is holding hors d'oeuvres, used as a trivet for serving hot food, or showcasing cheeses and nuts after dinner.  The natural bee's wax finish is easy to care for and looks terrific.  Being original and unique, people always ask about its origins, and being from an FSC certified forest, always makes a great story.
- Chris Lalande - Ottawa, Ontario

Chantal was very informative and very quick at responding to all emails and questions we had! Quality of stump is incredible and the effect it has on our living room is priceless! We cannot wait to order our next piece of furniture from her!!! Highly recommend :)

Just realized I never got back to you... I received the package in October and the boards are lovely. I am very happy with the beeswax paste, it smells nice and is exactly what I was hoping for in my search for a natural sealant/polish. I have a large supply for now but I hope you will continue to make the sealant for a long time as I intend to come back in the future Thank you,

Just wanted to say thank you so very much for the beautiful board, and those little extras that you didn't charge me for! It's amazing and I know it will wow all of our guests at our wedding!

 Shopping Your Way To A Better World   – Help Our Environment & Support Local Companies

Serenity Stumps Studio

 Who makes the stuff that fills our homes? Where do they live? Keep your money in Canada.  The purchasing decisions you make can have an impact not just on your wallet, but on supporting small Canadian Business. 

Here are a few suggestions to help you buy things that are not just good for your home, but 

better for the environment & the world we all live in.

Shop Local. 

Supporting local merchants and craftspeople means making an investment in your community. Plus there's the good feeling that comes from knowing the people who made your furniture. That's worth a few extra dollars, right? 

Shop Vintage. 

Buying stuff that has been there all along is one of the best choices you can make for the environment and the world. It's also a great way to save money, and pick up a unique piece that you won't see in anyone else's home. Garage sales, estate sales, flea markets, and vintage stores are excellent sources for one-of-a-kind, gently loved or DIY-able items.  

Hooray for the Internet! Internet sites allow you to purchase handmade and one-of-a-kind unique items directly from the maker, even if they don't happen to live close to you. Since there's no markup, more money goes to the artist, and the extra savings get passed on to you. 

Buying Canadian furniture is ethical & trendy.
Look for those three little words: "Made in CANADA."  

One thing for sure- Canadian furniture is always a good buy.  For its style, versatile design, and renowned durability.

 Buying Canadian furniture is a stamp of approval on the work of hundreds of seasoned professionals and artisans who truly make us proud of who we are as Canadians. Furniture is manufactured under fair working conditions and, for the most part, uses renewable resources from our forests—the fruits of a labour passed on from one generation of Canadian artisans to the next.

 Finally, furniture made in Canada is local. So it hasn’t travelled thousands of miles to reach your front door.

Going green really can make a difference!
