Biz Showcase: Rustix
Rustix Studio is a family business that is owned by Heather Torraville and Jay Aristone based in London, Ontario. Within a few years, they are now one of the most sought after custom table makers in the city. Nothing you get there will be cookie cutter. When you purchase a Rustix table you don’t just get a piece of furniture, you get an experience. You start the process with Heather and Jay by designing your dream piece- customizing the size, wood species and style. Then, they get to work, sending updates along the way. Once completed, the table is delivered personally by the Rustix team and installed. One thing you also get with Rustix is a story behind every piece. Rustix uses urban lumber right from our very own city. Trees that need to be taken down for building purposes or are becoming hazards, are cut by the city and delivered to the Rustix workshop. Each table comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, showing the location of where the wood came from, allowing each customer to have their very own piece of “Forest City”. The Rustix team also offers free design consultations. If you are unsure of what style table, colour, or size would be right for your space, they are happy to send in one of their designers and help with the process. From the words of Heather and Jay, “Our team at Rustix is dedicated to creating unique handcrafted furniture that captures the style and design expressed by each individual client. We are constantly striving to hone our skills and stretch our creativity to satisfy ourselves and our customers. We aren’t happy until you are.” Rustix Studio is located at 6621 Pack Road. Clients are always welcome to stop by, meet them in person, have a tour, and discuss any projects you have in mind.
