Our mission is to make better sofas, chairs using materials that our clients can feel good about bringing into their homes.

We design our products with maximum comfort and longevity in mind and are committed to producing furniture that is built to last and can be passed down through the generations.


Fawcett is a furniture manufacturer based out of a small factory in the Rock Bay neighbourhood of Victoria, BC. We are committed to producing work of an exceptional quality with the finest natural, sustainable and Earth friendly products available. We go to great lengths to obtain the best suited natural materials such as 100% natural Oeko-tex standard 100 Latex rubber foam, organic wool, cotton and hemp. From our organically and sustainably farmed solid beech furniture frames to the Greenguard certified purebond ply used in our custom beds to our single component water-based adhesives, no healthy detail is left to chance.

Our Workshop

Fawcett is located in the heart of the vibrant Rock Bay neighbourhood; our shop is around the corner from a handful of microbreweries, local coffee roasters, small tech start ups and various trades workshops. We are proud to be a part of such a diverse community and are on a first name basis with our printers, delivery drivers and lumber suppliers.

Our Story

Before becoming partners in Fawcett, Ross Taylor and Duane Franklin each spent 30 years in the upholstery and mattress manufacturing industry, crossing paths many times during that period. In 2012 they decided to join forces and create Fawcett, allowing them to apply all of their knowledge and years of experience to a new line of upholstered furniture. They have dedicated themselves to making better, longer lasting products while exclusively using sustainable, non off-gassing materials resulting in a line of products that we take great pride in.
