About Us

At Quagga Designs, we provide exciting, innovative, functional, and easy to assemble furniture solutions that simplify busy lifestyles.

We create smart furniture solutions that are hassle-free and easy to assemble.

Since its inception in 1991, Quagga Designs’ focus has been on our customers. From offering the most innovative designs, to making every step of the shopping experience enjoyable, we put you first!

We make innovative modern designs that are not found elsewhere, and we are proud to say that our products are unique in design and function. Each bed frame is designed in such a way that the customer only needs to set aside a few minutes for assembly. Our bed frames are also highly versatile, meaning select beds can be expanded if the customer decides to change mattresses, and they are easy to stack for storage and moving from one location to the next.

At Quagga Designs, we are passionate about design, and work everyday to enable you to live life more fully through design and style.

Origins of the Quagga Name

When we first started offering smart furniture solutions we wanted to find a name that would fit our mission perfectly. As more and more furniture providers switched to mass production, we noticed that high quality and low cost furniture had become nearly extinct. We decided to look for a name that suited our mission to resurrect exceptionally high quality, low cost furniture. We decided to go with "Quagga" (an extinct South African zebra that has a yellowish-brown coat with dark stripes) to go with one of our core values of "bringing back quality from extinction."

Meet our Founder

My venture into woodworking began in January of 1991 in a small shop located in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. The long days in the shop made me appreciate wood and its unique characteristics. Growing up in Germany, I was exposed to the “Ikea” craze. That let me to design furniture, in particular beds, that are minimalistic and easy to assemble. Utilizing all resources available to us here in Canada is our priority.
