Kleur: (kl-uur) Dutch; Colour, Hue, Tint, Shade
After building fine custom homes for the past 12 years in Prince Edward County, we found that when we handed the keys over to our clients they would inevitably ask where they should go to buy furniture, we didn’t have any options within our community to send them and so ended up directing them to online retailers or out of town. Thus Kleur Design was born…we finally have a great option for our clients, and the community, right here in PEC! We are trying to meet the need for classic, well made, staple furniture pieces that our clients will own for a long time. In addition to those foundation pieces, we will have trendy, fashion forward accessories that can change with the times to keep that furniture looking fresh and timeless. Our store (on-line and in person) is a place where people can come to find inspiring, well made and designed pieces in a friendly and welcoming environment.
Behind the scenes
Meet the team
After graduating from Sheridan College’s Interior Architecture and Design Program Christine worked in Toronto, for several different furniture showrooms before finding a job with a residential designer. Christine and Kyle decided to leave the “big city” and return to PEC to raise children close to family. Shortly after the birth of their first daughter, Kyle and Christine started a custom home building company called Hickory Homes. With his background in construction and engineering and her background in design it seemed like a natural fit and that’s what they have been doing together since 2008! Over the years the thought of opening a retail furniture store has come up again and again, and when Hickory Homes moved into a new location in September 2019 there was finally the space and opportunity and Kleur Design was born!
