Hi, I'm Warren and I opened RusTeak in 1999.
As a part-time job in high school I was invited by a friend's dad to assist in off-loading a shipment from Indonesia. Upon seeing all those wonderful treasures, I knew it was something I wanted to pursue as a career. I told him I wanted to open my own store and he laughed at me, so, I opened my own store anyway.
I go overseas to source furniture, art and antiques from craftsmen and artisans in Asia and India. Pieces are handpicked to bring back home and some of them are dated up to and over a hundred years old. In 2013, I expanded the store offering and started building custom furniture from reclaimed materials.
If you're looking for custom or antique furniture in Toronto, RusTeak is the place for you.
