Bass River Chairs

You may also know us by our nickname, Bass River Chairs. We have, in fact, had a few names over the years. Prior to May 1, 1903, Dominion Chair Company Limited was known as the Union Furniture and Merchandise Company.

Sales & Services

Although we no longer manufacture, we continue to specialize in the sale of traditionally crafted furniture, as well as unique gift items. In the general store we supply groceries, hardware, movie rentals, and we are also a NSLC Agency Store. 

Famous for its “Bass River Chairs,” Dominion Chair, although no longer manufacturing, carries on its legacy by specializing in the sale of fine, traditionally crafted, furniture. Located in the original general store, a visit to Dominion Chair’s showroom is to participate in a living part of Nova Scotian heritage.


We like to think of Dominion Chair as a social hub in Bass River. Just as folks chat and share news at the store, we encourage you to join in the conversation via social media. Keep up with events, sales, and other Dominion Chair news by visiting us on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and our Blog. We look forward to hearing from you!
