The "Douglas Stool" has been a traditional gift, given for weddings, births and anniversaries and more.
They are one small thread that has joined families and generations together.

For more than 70 years Ridpath's Fine Furniture of Toronto sold their "Douglas Stool".
Although we cannot boast a 70 year tradition we have made thousands of  our
"Memory Benches" over the past 21 years.
We would be honored if you would allow us to continue your
"Douglas Stool" tradition with one of our "Memory Benches"

Please feel free to contact us by phone or email.
We ship throughout North America.
Do you have a story to share about a Douglas Stool or Memory Bench?
We would like to start a story page, could it be included?
Ridpaths recent history.
In the spring of 2011 they announced that they would be closing their store and then later,
in the fall of 2011, stopped taking orders for their Douglas Stools.
A hotel and condo was planned for their site on Yonge Street.
In the fall of 2013 this plan may have changed.
Early in 2014 their website was closed and it is reported that phone calls were not being returned.
