"I am honoured to be the spokesperson for the 2015 Canadian Furniture Show. I've attended this show for years, and it's a fantastic opportunity to see so many great furniture pieces from Canada and abroad, all under one roof.

I'm sure consumers will really enjoy this unique event," says Karen Sealy.
