The Table and Chair and Mattress World

**The following story is a paid advertisement.**

CORNWALL, Ontario – What do you get when you couple two well-established home furnishing businesses in one ten-thousand-square-foot showroom?

Last September, owner, Pierre Lyonnais, did just that when he purchased Mattress World, on Montreal Road, and moved in his existing furniture store, The Table and Chair, formerly on Boundary Rd., to create an all-in-one furniture and décor store.

“The two businesses are really a great complement to each other,” said Lyonnais, who has turned the one-time mattress store into a “sleep centre.”

There is a great selection of mattresses in stock including Springwall, Simmons, and Serta, as well as futons, adjustable beds and a complete line of bedding products including mattress covers and pillows. Free delivery, set up and removal of your old mattress is also included.

After you’ve selected your mattress you can complete your look with a fabulous solid wood head board from The Table and Chair.

Of course, The Table and Chair, still carries a great selection of exquisitely-built, solid-wood furniture for every other room in your home too.

The pieces are hand-crafted in the Village of St. Jacobs, Ontario, by craftsmen, from a society of old-order Mennonites, who have refined their furniture-making skills over centuries. Whether you find something in store or you choose to have an item specially ordered to your specifications, your piece will stand the test of time and certainly become a cherished heirloom for generations to come.

Choose from oak, pine, maple or cherry, as well as the stain of your choice. Also among your choices, you can select whether you want a rough cut pine look that gives the appearance of barn board, or mission sawn-cut for a unique grain look.

Whatever your needs, from bedroom sets to televisions stands, the furniture comes in various styles, ranging from mission to contemporary. There are bar stools, corner hutches, buffets, hall tables, coffee tables, deacon’s benches, shelving units, children’s furniture, and much more. Custom kitchen cabinets are also available.

The Table and Chair also has a great selection of unique and stylish gifts, accent pieces and home fashion accessories, as well as cedar Adirondack outdoor furniture.

Adding another dimension to the business, recently, Lyonnais has become the area’s exclusive dealer for the Kamado Joe ceramic grills, natural hardwood charcoal cooking system, revolutionizing the backyard cookout.

Whether you’re cooking turkeys, briskets, ribs or others, the grill comes in three sizes to suit your needs. All accessories and charcoal are available in store.

“This is for your serious ‘barbequer,’” said Lyonnais. Visit for complete details.

The Table and Chair and Mattress World are located at 739 Montreal Rd. in Cornwall. Open Monday to Friday, 10am to 6pm and Saturday from 10am to 4pm. Keep an eye out for the upcoming grand opening which will happen sometime in May. Visit for further information or call Pierre at 613-938-2499.
