It all started in 1989, in Vancouver, Canada. Inspiration struck when our founders, Howard and Jixin, came across a simple, yet exceptional product: a well-made and well-priced duvet. In 1992, they opened their first two stores as ‘Quilts Etc’ in Clearbrook and Nanaimo, BC.
Almost 30 years later, QE Home has evolved from a small family business into a Canadian household name. Though we’ve done some growing up, we’ve stayed true to our roots, putting family, comfort, and our communities first. Today, we have over 70 stores across the country, from Vancouver Island to the tip of Newfoundland.
Whatever your style and however you sleep, our team of in-house designers and experts are dedicated to creating products you’ll love — using sustainable, high-quality materials you can feel great about.
From day one, we’ve kept accessibility top of mind. By working directly with manufacturers, we’re able to offer the best, most trusted materials, at prices that will help you sleep easy.
No middle-man, no markups, just quality linens.
Comfort starts at home.
It starts when you wake up in the morning, rested and rejuvenated. Cocooned in soft linens, wrapped in a warm, cloud-like duvet —there’s no better way to greet the day.
In many ways, your bedroom is the most personal space in your home. It’s a space just for you, sometimes shared, but always intimate. It should feel just like you, from the colours and textures to the knickknacks and picture frames.
At QE Home, our goal is to help you create a space that celebrates your unique take on the world — that makes you feel both comfortable and at home. How do we do it? By designing beautiful, high-quality bedding and unique accessories, in styles to suit every taste and prices to suit every budget!
Howard and Jixin meet at Simon Fraser University. They decide to build a business together. They try out various products before coming across one they feel passionate about: a simple, comfortable duvet.
Howard and Jixin come up with the name 'Quilts Etc' and open their first two stores in Clearbrook and Nanaimo, BC. Through cobbled together with second-hand fixtures and holding little product, Quilts Etc draws a crowd. Our founders are on the right track.
The digital boom is in full swing, and we get our very first website!
The early 90s were a time of rapid growth. Now, the family business spans the nation, with stores in Calgary, Alberta to Mississauga, Ontario.
We bring in our first line of eco-friendly textiles, made of ultra-soft, natural bamboo fibres.
Thinking ahead, we launch version one of our e-commerce site. For the first time ever, our products are available for purchase online!
We begin building out our in-house design team and creating whole new lines of bedding every season.
We rebrand! Quilts Etc becomes QE Home. "QE" as a nod to our past. "Home" to better represent the variety of products we offer and carry us into the future.
We face a year unlike any other. To succeed, we focus on offering new services to our customers with safety in mind, like same day pick up.
With over 70 brick-and-mortar stores and a well-established e-commerce site, we're proud to serve Canadians across the country. We hope we can help you find comfort for years to come!
As a child, I used to spend time in our stores with my dad. What I remember most was the way we made people feel. The joy when guests walked out of our store with fresh linens, and the gratitude people expressed for the comfort we provided. The way I see it, QE Home doesn't just provide bedding. We provide well-being, delight, and memories for Canadians of all ages and generations.
