ABOUT GIBBARD

Canada’s oldest furniture factory, The Gibbard Furniture Shops Limited, Napanee, Ont., was founded by John Gibbard, a cabinet maker who came to Napanee, in 1835.

The Gibbard Company remained in control of the Gibbard family for four generations  until 1940, when the firm was purchased by Jack McPherson, who had been Sales Manager in the 1920’s.

Seventy Canadian embassies and high commissions around the world are decorated with Gibbard furniture. Bobby Orr sleeps in a Gibbard bed. And even John A. Macdonald is rumoured to have written on a Gibbard desk.

In 2009, after 173 years, The Gibbard Company closed their doors.
