Here is a memory from ETD's Facebook timeline. September 2014. 6 months into our new adventure as @eternaltimber one of our bigger custom jobs. Collaborating with a local design firm Sticks + Stones Design Group Inc. Trusted us to create this (absolutely one of my favorites) gorgeous table.
This picture is not only a representation of our journey as a small business it is our heart and soul. Our love for design, being creative and artistry. Over 5 years later we Eternal Timber and Design are still here and still loving what we do. Thank you! 💕🥂
Six months after that holiday, Eternal Timber was set up and ready to go. Like most small businesses, Shawn admits it was a struggle at first. It was difficult to find customers and the hustle was tiring while he was still working as a framer. There were long days and long weeks of hard work. But after about 18 months, things started taking off.
Locally, word of mouth has been important to growing Eternal Timber. Shawn has good relationships with many Okanagan interior designers and they suggest his art to their clients. But thanks to the internet, Shawn’s business is also global. He has customers in Mexico and Europe as well as across North America, and enjoys travelling to consult with customers during the design process. He says that, in particular, the visual social media platform, Instagram, has been helpful for broadening his reach around the world. Eternal Timber now has more than 10.5K Instagram followers.
But no matter how successful a business is, there are always challenges. Next time you’re in the showroom, ask Shawn to tell you the story of that time he made a table that was three times the length of a queen size bed, and so heavy it took 12 people to carry it. And it needed to be delivered through a third storey window in downtown Kelowna.…
It was great to work on this project and work along side the talented people that put the show together.
We are so fortunate to live here in the sunny Okanagan. Here is a look inside one of our clients home. Living room and dining room . Our designs can work in any room of your home of office.
How an 18' Boardroom is finished. This one had to be craned through a window!
Just a typical install day here at Eternal Timber and Design. Our client asked and we delivered a 12.5 ft by 8.5 ft Island for their design studio. Maple with Epoxy Smokey fills. Watch for the reveal photos!!
The Okanagan sunshine is the best medicine for the cloudy day blues. Eternal Timber and Design is proud to be located in such an amazing place.
