About Bow River Furniture
“I have been in construction all of my life," says Brian Derksen, owner of Bow River Furniture. He has been operating his general contracting business, Kean Contracting, in the Calgary area for over 15 years. “In 2008 an employee by the name of Mike came along and he came from more of the finishing side of things. He was pushing us to do more furniture and cabinetry." Brian, Mike and the rest of the skilled craftsmen at Kean Contracting began to do more fine finishing work such as custom kitchen cabinetry and bookcases.
In 2020, Brian began to think about “creating something that was just a little bit different” and Bow River Furniture was born. Specializing in live edge furniture with epoxy resin inlays, Bow River Furniture seeks to adorn your home with master crafted, one of a kind furniture that will last generations. Each piece is completely unique and handmade with wood sourced from across North America.
We use high quality resins and finishes including non-toxic water- based finishes and plant based sealants. All epoxies are professionally mixed according to the manufacturer’s specifications, to ensure the best quality finish available. The legs on our tables are metal and professionally powder coated for ultimate resilience.
We hope you enjoy your piece of Bow River Furniture for many years to come. We dream that our works of functional art will be a part of your family for generations. We are excited to a part of your home, and pleased to help create memories that will last a lifetime!
