Right at home for 30 years
In 1990, the first Urban Barn opened with wooden floors and a big farmhouse door – a rustic space right in the heart of Vancouver. What began as an entrepreneurial dream between two childhood friends has gown into a Canadian destination for beautiful, well-made furniture and home accents. Today, Urban Barn remains 100% Canadian owned, with over 55 locations from British Columbia to Quebec.
"We're thrilled to be celebrating a major milestone in the midst of uncertain times. It's a testament to our Canadian legacy and how customers in communities across the country have continued to support Urban Barn."
Linda Letts, President of Urban Barn
"My role at Urban Barn has evolved along with the company. I started in reporting, and I'm now the Director of IT, Ecommerce and Analytics. Thanks for eleven years of challenges, building systems and creating new teams as we continue to grow."
"I knew, the minute I walked through the front door in South Surrey 10 years ago, that I had found my future. I felt “right at home” immediately. I found like minded passionate people with a love for beautiful things! "
“I was a young man looking for work when I came across the first store in Ontario on Queen Street. What I thought would be just a job became a career, and 16 years later, I’m still here.”
