Josiah and Katrina Rosie of Rosewood Restorations

osiah and Katrina Rosie are the couple behind Rosewood Restorations. Originally from New Zealand, Josiah met Katrina (a Canadian) while working at a summer camp in Alberta. The couple married, and lived in New Zealand for a number of years together. They then moved to Kingston, Ontario for Katrina to pursue further study.

Working and studying full time, the pair are always looking for creative outlets. Rosewood Restoration was born of this creativity. Together, they design and create custom furniture and housewares which are both beautiful and practical. Beginning in their rental apartment’s basement, Rosewood Restorations has recently been upgraded to a garage. Says Josiah, “We finally have space to make into a full-sized workshop!”

TERRY THOMPSON OF WHY NOT? RE-CREATIONS

My creations or re-creations are either entirely made out of recycled materials, or contain some recycled content. I truly believe in recycling the past to beautify the future.

LNA's main mission is to bring awareness to the public regarding the wastefulness of our consumerist society, where we are obsessed with tossing things away without a second thought about if it is still useful, where it goes and what potential impact it will have on our planet. With this in mind, LNA embraces and promotes a non-wasteful ideology by celebrating creativity, vintage and art— via upcycling!
