Interna Furniture Design Ltd. has remained a family-owned business since its beginning in 1963. When founder, Joe Kubecka first started out, his passion for quality manufacturing and furniture design gave him the inspiration to start his own contemporary furniture manufacturing enterprise.
In its early years, Interna manufactured quality residential seating. The company experienced many years of significant growth distributing its products through top mass-merchandisers including Eaton’s and the Hudson’s Bay Company (then Simpson’s), as well as a number of independent high-end furniture retailers located throughout Canada and the United States.
In 1989, Interna introduced its first contract seating line, suitable for mid to high-end commercial applications. As an area of steady expansion this enabled Interna to participate in many prestigious corporate projects.
Interna’s skilled crafts people create not only the standard Interna product line but also semi-custom and completely custom designs for clients. Interna’s ability to create prototypes lead to a successful relationship with the furniture marketer Softcare Innovations. This was Interna’s entry into the manufacture of healthcare furnishings where Interna designed and produced products under private label. This relationship that began in 1995, transitioned when Softcare was sold to Steelcase in 2006. Interna’s experience in the healthcare sector spans 20 years with many of our own proprietary models now in our standard product line.
Proud to be Canadian, Interna produces both its residential and commercial product lines in a facility in Toronto, Ontario. Working together with well-respected Canadian and European design teams, we aim to continuously create innovative new models. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality seating, with a focus on design, sustainability and attention to detail.
We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy offering them to you. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
