J&J By Design

Your Mennonite Built Custom Kitchen, Closet and Furniture Destination

For more than 30 years, Chris MacKeigan and Hershey Vijan MacKeigan have been combining their strong backgrounds in custom cabinetry, furniture and home design to offer their customers beautiful products that are built to stand the test of time.

Formerly known as J&J Wood Products, J&J By Design has become especially renowned for their custom Mennonite-Crafted Kitchens. “The quality and overall value are impressive,” says MacKeigan. “There’s just nothing like it in the market.”

Accommodating varying budgets and styles, J&J By Design allows clients to visualize the finished project and make all modifications necessary with state-of-the-art technology that provides very detailed three-dimensional images of their projects.

Specializing in custom designs, J&J By Design can make their clients ideas, hopes and dreams a reality. If a homeowner wants a dining table set, centre island, or bar chairs to complement their new kitchen, they can make it happen.

While the couple is celebrated for their quality-made custom kitchens, they’re just as recognized for their unique and well-designed closets.

With the MacKeigan’s skills, organizing your home has never been easier. “One client was so happy when she saw her closet that she became teary eyed,” says Vijan-MacKeigan. And this was just one of many satisfied customers, which speaks to the dedication and talent of the team.

It’s no surprise the majority of J&J By Design’s customers come to them through referrals. There are endless recommendations from people who know firsthand just how talented and dedicated the team at J&J By Design is. They work personally with each and every customer to ensure their completed living spaces reflect their lifestyle and tastes.

“We built one client’s kitchen and through referrals, seven more kitchen projects came because of it,” says MacKeigan. “Many clients even became friends over the years.”

“This doesn’t feel like work,” adds Vijan-MacKeigan. “It’s a pleasure to work on all their projects. When we see a big smile on our client’s face, that says it all.”

Overseeing the manufacturing of all projects and working with highly skilled craftsmen, J&J By Design takes great care to ensure every customer is 100 per cent satisfied with the work completed. “We are committed to offering our clients products made to the highest standards and with the highest-quality materials possible,” says MacKeigan.

A True One-Stop-Home Improvement Shop

In 2016, J&J By Design opened its new Design Centre Showroom on Gardiners Rd, to the public. It provides customers with a unique variety of styles and price points for home improvement products and home furnishings in a convenient and beautiful one-stop-shop setting.

Customers are invited to drop by and browse through J&J By Design’s extensive collection of catalogues, samples and displays that showcase a wide range of products to enhance any home. Whether they’re looking for quality backsplashes, flooring and tile, countertops, superior home furnishings or interior design services, the MacKeigan’s — who take great pride in the fact that the majority of their products offered in-store are Canadian-made — have it.

Notable Projects

J&J By Design’s work is visible throughout the Limestone City, including The Burr Wing at Kingston General Hospital (they collaborated with local architects to provide all the millwork), the Fort Frontenac Library and throughout the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel. They were also commissioned to create the furnishings – kitchens, vanities, fireplace mantles, etc. — at the Wolfe Springs Golf and Waterfront Resort in Westport.
