About Us

Our Story

Inspired to bring the highest quality of furniture into the homes of Atlantic Canadians, the Ramia brothers opened the doors to Gallery1 in 1988. As the first of its kind, and more than just a furniture retailer, the brothers envisioned a space where beautiful furniture and décor would awaken design inspiration. The store featured staged vignettes where customers were encouraged to mingle amongst the furniture, explore the curated collections and discover stylish décor.

Gallery1 believes in quality craftsmanship, carrying many Canadian–made manufactures. Gallery1 is continuously inspired by the arts, architecture, and culture surrounding us. Today, its product selection encompasses expertly created furniture from North America, Europe and Asia.

In 2010, Gallery1 was the first retailer in Atlantic Canada to be recognized with the prestigious, Furniture Retailer of the Year Award presented by the Canadian Home Furnishings Association. The award acknowledged Gallery1’s impact on the furniture industry in Atlantic Canada and their generous support of local charities including; Phoenix Youth and The Canadian Mental Health Association.

What was once a furniture store among brothers is now the leading luxury furniture store in Atlantic Canada. Not limited to one style or fashion trend – Gallery1’s interiors are stylish, thoughtful and elegant, always seeking to inspire artists, stylists and lovers of beautiful pieces. Gallery1 is a full service design firm, where their designers help build a space that is a reflection of their clients.

No matter your style, find your muse at Gallery1.

As a designer, I consider Gallery 1 a valuable resource. Their selection of products is extensive, covering a good cross-section of price points. And their staff members are truly knowledgeable and always helpful.
