A walk through any of Wicker Emporium stores and I’m taken with the number of things I’d like to have in my home…in fact, take a walk through my home and you’ll find plenty of treasures I found at Wicker Emporium!
As their website explains, Madan Kapahi arrived in Canada from India in 1967 to practice law. Within a short period of time, he found himself looking to purchase traditional wicker furniture…a comfortable reminder of home. It wasn’t long before he realized that the furniture he was looking for could not be found locally…and this entrepreneur had an idea! With regular shopping trips to Europe and Asia, Mr. Kapahi opened his first store in Halifax in 1972 and what began over 40 years ago, has grown to include twenty-three stores throughout the Atlantic Provinces and Ontario…and still remains a family-owned business today.
I visited a few of the stores to take a look around and could find things I’d like to purchase in many of the photos below whether I’m looking for:
- solid wood furniture
- wrought iron
- upholstered accent furniture
- mirrors and wall art
- storage solutions and basketware
- home textiles
- floor and window coverings
- outdoor furniture and accessories
- accessories and home decor items
