Blackwood Originals is owned and operated by accidental environmentalists, Bill & Dawn King.

A semi-retired couple who moved from Ottawa to Lanark Highlands to raise our two young children, the Kings soon embarked upon a new venture that fulfilled our fondness for unique finds and hand-crafted Canadian home furnishings & collectibles.

We set up shop in the old ‘Kitten Mill’ Building (#2) on George Street in Lanark Village, and immediately established a reputation for quality & service. Blackwood Originals has established great relationships with our Mennonite and Lanark Highlands’ area artisans. All new products offered by Blackwood are made in Canada, cutting down on shipping costs, employing the local economy and offering quality items that last a lifetime.

Since opening our doors in 2010, we’ve continued to build on the shop’s offerings, having added ‘Village Book’s to the store’s offerings, where we have thousands of signed and collectible books, ranging from classic literature to page-turning biographies.

In addition to our hand-made & custom furniture, and now books, Blackwood Originals is also now offering antiques & vintage collectibles. Our hand picked vintage furnishings complement our new offerings, and reflect the local heritage of the Lanark/Perth area.

Meanwhile, in our biggest move yet, we moved our store to a prime corner location in downtown Heritage Perth in September 2013, while still maintaining a seasonal ‘Annex’ at our original location in Lanark Village.

Whether you’re looking for the perfect furniture piece or a special piece to hang on your wall, Bill and Dawn welcome you into the shop, offering friendly service, and ensuring each item purchased suits the personalized tastes and needs of each customer.
