Skilled Fine Furniture Craftsmen

Harper Knudsen Ltd. was established in 1987 when Ken Harper and Fred Knudsen merged their respective businesses. Our focus on architectural woodwork and fine furniture coupled with our project management capability, has allowed us to work with some of Canada's top architects/designers, builders and artists.
Harper Knudsen is an eight-man operation, where the principals are involved in every aspect of production. We provide the range of services of a large mill-work shop, while maintaining the quality control and personal attention to detail of an owner-operated shop. Our 5,000 square foot facility is situated centrally at Main and Terminal in Vancouver. We also have the most skilled, fine furniture makers/craftsmen in the Greater Vancouver area with an average length in the trade of 30+ years.
