Fruit Salad Furnishings redesigns and brings furniture back to life as a unique and modern piece. Every item is re-imagined and crafted for a new life by Dana McLean and Ryan Gaudreault. They have a passion for art, design, and craftsmanship. They find potential in forgotten pieces and are excited to see them in a fresh contemporary form.
F.S.F sees the value and potential in forgotten furniture, each piece they pick has characteristics they wish to preserve or enhance to create a one-of-a-kind piece. Their focus is on quality, comfort and respect for the traditional ways of building, while still creating a beautiful piece that can be enjoyed for years to come.
Fruit Salad Furnishings founders Dana Mclean and Ryan Gaudreault met while attending Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary. It was a natural partnership, each searching for the perfect outlet to develop a career and apply their creative passion.
Dana brings her robust design aesthetic and fine-tuned skills as a maker to the development process. Ryan brings his training as a finishing carpenter in custom woodworking and furniture making to each design. Together, they create unique hand-crafted furniture from concept to completion.
Fruit Salad is their dream turned reality.
