From the beginning as a small furniture company in Ontario, Canada, Magnussen has evolved into a full line furniture resource with offices in Ontario, Canada; High Point, NC; Riverside, CA; and, the Far East. Their business is creating furniture designs of exceptional style, value and beauty. Magnussen produces these designs in partnership with their manufacturing partners around the world that meet exacting standards for superior quality at the best possible value.
The foundation of Magnussen's success is built on the company's core values of trust, honesty, and respect. Each of my teammates at Magnussen Home participates in the success of the company and is eager to ensure that their furniture products enrich the homes of customers with their exceptional style and workmanship.
An unrivaled value in home furnishings -- this is the commitment that they renew everyday to consumers who invite Magnussen Home into their lives. Magnussen sources their designs from only the finest home furnishings manufacturers, many in the Far East and Central America.
Even as the company has grown larger, the principles of a family-run business -- trust, honesty and respect -- continue to be its foundation. The company was founded in 1931 by Ingwer Magnussen. A cabinetmaker by trade and a craftsman and businessman by heart, Ingwer took the bold initiative to start his own business in Kitchener, Ontario, when he was unable to find work during the 1930s depression. He beautifully and intricately carved show wood for sofa frames for upholstery manufacturers and his business grew into a good-sized company serving Canada.
Richard Magnussen, Ingwer's son, joined the company in 1970 at the age of 20. Richard steered the company's focus on expansion and growth, enabling Magnussen Furniture to become Canada's largest supplier of occasional tables. In 1986, Richard founded Presidential Furniture, a division of Magnussen Furniture, to serve the U.S. market. In 1986, the company began trading as Magnussen-Presidential Furniture, which became one of the most progressive occasional furniture suppliers in North America. With an eye to detail and an understanding of the worth of exclusive designs, Richard built relationships with international manufacturers from around the world and tapped a huge growth opportunity. Magnussen-Presidential Furniture began importing from the Orient a decade before fashion trends and design styles in the furniture business made it in vogue to do so.
In 2002, Magnussen-Presidential Furniture became Magnussen Home. The addition of "Home" reflects what Magnussen offers as a company -- fine furniture, designed and created by a family of craftsmen from around the world, to fill the most important rooms in your home.
Details are important... even down to where you will set a water glass. They have a passion for details. It stems from how Magnussen runs their company, grows into the conveniences they design into their furniture, and blooms into the relationships built with their valued dealers.
Magnussen designs every piece of furniture that carries the Magnussen Home name. They understand that finishing touches like intricately carved woodwork or ironwork do more than complete the look of a piece of furniture; they set the tone of your home. Magnussen furniture does more than fill a home. It expresses who we are.
An unwavering commitment to ensuring your satisfaction is their most important difference.
Attractive informal table
Customer from Santa Rosa Beach, FL – Verified Buyer
I purchased this table to place under a wall-mounted 40 in TV set with a center channel speaker resting on it just below the TV as part of a surround sound system. The front left and right speakers are also mounted on the wall. Unlike other sofa tables that double as desks, this one has large drawers that can be used for items related to the home theater system. An technician advised me to put an AV receiver on one side of the bottom shelf. I think it will make access to the connections easier than with my previous closed TV stand. I decided to get this table after having first ordered the Bellhaven end tables and then the coffee table. I was a little apprehensive that the tops of the pieces of furniture in this series would be too bright a red. This was not the case. I think the color goes well with the dark bronze fixtures and lamps that I already had. I think the cherry tops with alabaster finish give the informal third floor room more character than plain white furniture that had been suggested. Like all the Magnussen furniture that I have purchased, it is easy to put together, sturdy, well-designed, and of good quality.

This is a fairly substantial table and is very pretty. The first one came with a corner smashed in so I emailed wayfair and they sent another in a few weeks. I use it as a console table right inside the entry way. My husband was impressed with the quality as well and didnt seem to have any problem putting it together.
Perfect accent piece!
Judy from Oregon, OH – Verified Buyer
This is the perfect piece for our living room. Although the picture appears very white, it is more a cream color. The description listed is alabaster and that is correct. I depended on the reviews before making the decision to purchase. The shipping container and packaging was very sturdy.It was very easy to assemble the legs and bottom shelf with the wrench included. I did it alone. We're very happy!

I use this table for my big tv. It is perfect. I have coastal decor. My sister wanted to take it to her beach house.
Linda from Crawfordville, FL – Verified Buyer
Easy assembly, looks very good in my space. Bought several pieces of furniture from Wayfair this past year.....no problems, customer service was great the one time I called to clarify a description.
Gregory from Rochester, NY – Verified Buyer
I had the end tables and coffee table already so I knew what to expect. Order was at my house in two day and looked great! Couldn't be happier
Sturdy and pretty
Richard from San Antonio, TX – Verified Buyer
Great addition to our office, deep drawers, smooth motion of the drawers. Solid and sturdy, we use it to hold printer and for our cat to eat her food (tall enough to keep the pups from bugging her).
