“If you build it they will come!” In this case, we’re not referring to a baseball park – but handcrafted, homemade furniture. Melissa Coutney is the craft master behind Foxwood home décor and handmade furniture in Lac La Biche. She was born and raised in Lac La Biche and loves it in summer and winter for many reasons, but mostly she loves the big beautiful lake itself. When Melissa is not creating and building furniture and home accessories, she is hard at work at the dentist office.
It all began when Melissa started making little things like end tables and growth chart. As her customer base grew, so did the demand for even more creations and her inventory of homemade furniture and home décor expanded. The style that is so popular is very rustic and homey. She offers custom orders and sells those she has already made. Melissa’s own home boasts her very own kitchen table, furniture and decorative pieces which many say are works of art.
