About Us

Mennonite Furniture Gallery, along with Wieler's Furniture, is a family-run business in Aylmer, Ontario. Owners Brian and Jeanette Hiemstra have been selling locally made furniture since 1999. Almost all the furniture pieces we sell are made one-at-a-time by artisans and family businesses in the Amish and Mennonite communities. Today we have more than 30 different suppliers, all within a 300 km radius of Alymer, enabling us to showcase a wide variety of furniture styles.

"Mennonite Furniture" describes our builders, not a distinct furniture style. Built one-at-a-time by local Amish and Mennonite craftspeople, our products' true hand-crafted quality and workmanship are immediately evident.

Choose from hundreds of available styles and design details, then choose your wood (usually oak or maple, but pine is often an option), and your stain colour. Work is done to your specifications— our builders are happy to alter furniture dimensions to suit your space and your taste. Need something fully customized? No problem. Give us your measurements and drawings and we'll get to work.

Our spacious showroom lets you browse in comfort but, unlike the big-box retailers, wood furniture is our only business. We go out of our way to help you buy with ease and confidence.

Please spend some time looking through our web site. Call or e-mail us if you have questions, or if you'd like a quote on custom work. You may prefer to use our online form to reach us.

Aylmer is a rarity among small towns. Its busy, functioning downtown and distinct "personality" are unmarred by suburban sprawl or tourist kitsch. Please accept our invitation to visit not only our showroom but also the many sights and attractions of Aylmer, Elgin County and environs.

"Since we opened Mennonite Furniture Gallery our motto has been 'If you are happy tell a friend. If you're not, tell us'. We stand by the quality and workmanship of our builders and will go the extra mile to ensure you are perfectly satisfied with your furniture purchase. After all, these are lifetime investments. You can be confident that their beauty and utility will endure through decades of enjoyment."- Brian and Jeanette Hiemstra
